Ryan Lochte Talks 'Heartbreaking' Swimming Suspension, Putting Rio Robbery Scandal Behind Him Ryan Lochte is once more making it clear he's ready to step away from the "lowest" times of his Rio robbery scandal.
The 32-year-old Olympic swimmer and his new Dancing with the Stars partner Cheryl Burke are sitting down with Ellen DeGeneres on Monday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to address the international incident, the advice he received from teammate Michael Phelps and his future in the sport. In the weeks after he lodged a false report of armed robbery, Lochte tells DeGeneres, "I reached the lowest point of my entire life that I never thought I would go to. I was in a really dark place, and I didn't know if I should come out, just hide my entire life. He says his friends and family reassured him during those trying times and he realized, "You can't always hide the rest of your life just embrace this opportunity so that's why I'm here."
Cheryl Burke Reveals Ryan Lochte Suffered Ankle Injury When Protester Was Tackled on Dancing with the Stars Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke has returned to the reality dance competition she first joined in 2006, and she's blogging about season 23 exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow Burke and her partner Ryan Lochte, both 32, on Twitter! Following an incident on Monday night's live premiere episode in which two men stormed the stage to protest Lochte's participation as a contestant on season 23, Burke reflects on the moments before, during and after the emotional ordeal. Before everything happened last night, Ryan and I were on such a high from our foxtrot. He nailed it and I was proud of him. I could tell he was proud as well. That confidence was something that definitely wasn't there at camera blocking on Sunday. Ryan was so nervous that it felt like his heart was beating outside his chest. And since we went second-to-last on Monday, I could feel his hands beginning to sweat as we watched from backstage while everyone else performed.
s particularly nervous about how the audience was going to receive him. But after the opening number last night, I told him, "Did you hear people cheering? All these people are here for you and cheering for you."
Just before our dance I told him, "It's just you and me out there. Let's do this." And we really did. I couldn't have asked him to dance any better. I could tell Ryan was glad it was over but also that he felt good about what we'd done. We were standing there listening to [judge Carrie Ann Inaba] give us her thoughts when I suddenly saw someone walking onto the ballroom floor in a t-shirt with a red line through Ryan's last name. My first thought was, "Is this a joke? Is this scripted and no one told us? Too soon, guys." But as soon as he started yelling "Boo! Lochte! Liar! Lochte!" I realized it was a serious situation. My mind started racing. My initial concern was if the guy was armed or not. DWTS is a family show and I knew there were kids in the audience and I just didn't want anyone to get hurt. Then I saw Dave – one of our security guys who I've known for years – come in and tackle this guy.
