Blogs were abuzz this week that Olympic Medalist Michael Phelps and Brittny Gastineau are dating after they were spotted last Friday at L.A.'s Mondrian Hotel and shopping the next day.

But when asked her about him Tuesday at Lupus LA's 8th Annual Orange Ball in Beverly Hills, she played coy.

Asked if she first spotted him competing in the Olympics, she paused. "Well...who didn't watch the Olympics?" she told Us. "Um, I watched the Olympics."

She refused to say when they met. "I cannot comment on that at all," she said.

But she couldn't help but gush a little bit: "He is cute," she told Us.

Tell Us: Would Brittny and Michael make a cute couple?
