Holler, 23, was recently introduced to viewers of the TV show when she visited Lochte’s Florida home in a previous episode. Holler had been the swimmer’s long-distance girlfriend for four years.
According to the Daily Mail, Lochte and Holler agreed their long-distance relationship was problematic. Lochte apparently said they had to “either go all in or we’ll say our goodbyes, we just haven’t made a decision yet.”
While Lochte was out to dinner with his buddies, he got a call from Holler and knew it had to be serious. He even disconnected his mic and tried to shoo away the E! cameramen who were following him as he took the call outside.
The relationship between them could not have been too serious if Lochte’s mom said last year that her son didn’t have time for a girlfriend. Plus, if Lochte’s really in desperate need of a rebound, maybe he could give Carmen Electra a call.
