NEW YORK (CBS) Although she won't confirm or deny reports that she's dating Michael Phelps, socialite and former reality TV star Brittny Gastineau has confessed that she finds the Olympic gold medal winner attractive.

While at the 8th Annual Hollywood Bag Ladies luncheon for Lupus in Beverly Hills Tuesday, Gastineau, 28, told E! Online that she thinks Phelps, 28, is "cute."

She kept coy when she was asked about the details of their relationship. "Unfortunately, I can't comment on that," she said.

Gastineau and Phelps sparked relationship rumors when they were spotted together getting cozy at the Mondrain Hotel in Los Angeles Friday night and were seen again shopping the next day at The Grove. 

Gastineau, who is the daughter of former New York Jets football player Marcus Gastineau, may have an eye for athletes.  She was the matchmaker behind the brief relationship between close friend Kim Kardashian and Dallas Cowboy wide receiver Miles Austin.
