Olympic champion Michael Phelps brought his new girlfriend home for Thanksgiving last week, said People. Phelps has been dating Caroline “Caz” Pal, a tattooed cocktail waitress at a Las Vegas strip club who has posed in various states of undress for websites such as “Beverly Hills Pimps and Hos.” Phelps, who stands to make tens of millions of dollars from celebrity endorsements, has been spending a lot of time in Vegas learning how to play competition-level poker. “It’s just, like, a game that I could become better at,” he said.
