Taylor Swift Only Has a Month Left to Enjoy Her Summer Fling with Conor Kennedy

After they were spotted last Friday in Hyannisport walking extra close to one another, a source has confirmed that pixies are real, dogs can talk, the Moon is made of havarti cheese, and finally, "Taylor [Swift] is officially dating Conor Kennedy." Meanwhile, alone in a dark gym listening to Metallica, Patrick Schwarzenegger performed dumbbell curls furiously, determined that next time he and Taylor met, his biceps would be so big she'd just have to date him instead of his cousin.

Though Swift was rumored to be prodding Schwarzenegger's pectoral muscles over July 4th, a recent beach visit with Kennedy led to all those summery hookup tropes we've come to expect from New England summers thanks to Summer Catch — nosy observers say that Swift and Kennedy walked on the beach, bounced on the trampoline, and even made-out chastely behind the boat shed. Then they went for custard, played mini-golf, and fell asleep halfway through Sabrina, wondering the whole time what would happen at the end of the summer when they parted ways. Sigh, it's already August... [Us]

Before you go thinking she's a bona-fide star, Olivia Munn would like to remind you that she doesn't consider herself a leading lady, not yet, anyway, so long as that Natalie Portman still has the lead in Swan Lake. Munn also isn't Tom Cruise, a fact her mother once reminded her of: "It took a long time to convince my Asian mother that I could do it because she believed that only one person in the world could become a movie star and that was Tom Cruise. She's like, 'You're not Tom Cruise!'" [AP]

According to Ryan Lochte's mom, the reason her son doesn't have a girlfriend is because he's super busy having sex with a bunch of different people. Rather than emotionally commit to someone, she told NBC, "He [Lochte] goes out on one-night stands. He's not able to give fully to a relationship because he's always on the go." Then again, rumors are swirling that Lochte is maybe, possibly dating Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star K. Michelle, at least according to these two tidbits of information: K. Michelle admitted in a press conference that she was dating a "white guy" who is coincidentally "a swimmer," and she also tweeted a picture of Lochte, calling him her "pooh." What else can we do with all these piles of evidence but assume that Lochte and K. Michelle will be married by an ordained polar bear at the end of a diving board overhanging the Arctic Ocean?
