A few months back here at Babalu we speculated that (half-Cuban) Ryan Lochte (unlike William Levy) eschews any hint of right-wing intransigence simply out of career calculations. (I.E. such chusmeria just doesn’t become celebrities.)
Well, today from the The Hollywood Reporter:
Ryan Lochte knows exactly what he wants. He wants to be Kim Kardashian — and isn’t ashamed to admit it. Lochte doesn’t want to miss his moment, and he’s sure this is it.
“Kim started from pretty much nothing, and now everyone everywhere knows who she is,” he says. “That’s what I want to do.”
You gotta love his honesty and straight-talk.
