IT may have landed in her in hot water in the past but it seems the lure of social networking is just too strong for full-time swimmer and part-time poseur Stephanie Rice. The Olympian has shared yet another racy image - this time in her birthday suit. Well sort of.
Rice posted this image on Instagram earlier today, thanking her friend and swimwear designer Ellie Gonsalves for the bikini - a 24th birthday present (even though her birthday was June 17).
While there was an initial fear that the spruiking of a alternative swimwear brand to Speedo might be a conflict of interest - her management has insisted that she is not breaking any commercial agreements. "No, Stephanie isn't an ambassador for Ellie Gonsalves, she just loves their stuff. She doesn't have any relationship with Speedo anymore so there are no restrictions there.''
