WATCH: Is Shakira's BF Gerard Piqué retiring from soccer?!

I have to admit that my heart skipped a little beat when I saw this picture of Gerard Piqué, the FC Barcelona forward--and better known as Shakira's boyfriend--dressed in a strange uniform. It's not that he's always in his team jersey or anything, but out of the field, I've gotten used to his normal very casual or very formal gear, depending on the event of course. My first thought was: OMG, is he abandoning soccer!? The prospect itself horrifies me!

Khloe Kardashian's hubby Lamar Odom loses his cool with paparazzi amidst divorce rumors

If you are familiar with the Kardashian family, then you know that Khloe's husband Lamar Odom has made headlines lately for behaving badly. But the reason behind his aggression is because he's rumored to have cheated on his wife--which he has vehemently denied.

Odom had his last straw when two paparazzi photographers pulled up beside him at a red light near his home and intrusively asked him if he cheated on his Kardashian spouse. He denies the accusation and says, "I would never cheat on my wife, that's why I wear my wedding ring." That's when things got nasty as he made his way towards the men, and took one of their camera equipment bags, destroying the contents inside. Wow!

Ryan Lochte in the role he was meant to play on '30 Rock' (VIDEO)

Well, it's FINALLY happened: Olympic gold medalist (and major hottie) Ryan Lochte has landed the TV role that he's absolutely perfect for: playing Nina Arianda's "sex idiot" who has just lost his shirt on NBC's 30 Rock this week. Um, is anyone else but me extremely excited to see some more of this half-Cuban's body? And, of course, making fun of himself… Yes, I just LOVE it.

Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani & 5 reasons I can't wait for the NFL season!

Yippee! I just found out that Mariah Carey and Gwen Stefani are going to be kicking off the 2012 NFL season with an awesome live performance at Rockefeller Center for the hour-long pre-game show. Of course I'll be tuning in because right after, my beloved NY Giants (and last year's Super Bowl reigning champs, whoot whoot!) will be taking on the Dallas Cowboys.

So, yeah--some of your probably read that and felt like I was speaking a foreign language. But the thing is, I LOVE football. As a matter of fact I love most sports; baseball, soccer, basketball--I know, I'm a freak. Although it makes my hubby super happy (and most of his friends jealous, ha!) I have to admit, it does suck being the only girl around when we're watching big sporting events. The only time there is every really a lot of other women around is during the Superbowl, and even then, most of the chicas spend their time confined to the kitchen. UGH.

Ryan Lochte to appear on '90210' + 5 other shows he needs to join!

I already knew that Ryan Lochte wanted to join Dancing with the Stars and maybe other reality TV shows, but he surprised everyone by landing a cameo in 90210! Be still, my heart.

Although I'm a big fan of the half-Cuban Olympic gold medalist swimmer (and, really, who isn't at this point?), I'm not really that into reality TV. I do love dancing and cooking competitions, but Ryan's recent Funny or Die videos and this new unfortunately not-shirtless role on the Los Angeles-based show have made me think about all of the OTHER great shows that Ryan absolutely must star in. Here are the 5 other shows that need to give Ryan Lochte a call ASAP.

I know I can't possibly be the only one that is SUPER motivated to work out right now. And yes, it's all because of the London 2012 Olympics and watching the amazingly hot bodies of men like Ryan Lochte (can you tell I'm a bit obsessed?) and the abilities of women like Marlen Esparza.
