Lance Armstrong

Reportedly Ready to Come Clean to Oprah

1/12/2013 5:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0112-lance-armstrong-oprah-tmzLance Armstrong is gearing up to admit that he was doping throughout his illustrious cycling career ... and he will make the admission to Oprah Winfrey this week ... so says a new report.

Armstrong will not go into great detail, says USA Today, but will make the admission during an interview that tapes Monday and airs on Thursday.

The seven-time Tour de France winner has adamantly denied any wrongdoing for years, often attacking anyone who accused him.

Armstrong was banned for life and stripped of all his Tour de France victories last year.

His arrogance and narcissism has no bounds - for years he pointed his finger at everyone and called them liars for saying he was doping, he pointed his finger at the US and European officials and accused them of waging witch hunts against him, he pointed his finger at competitors and said they were just envious of him because he was so talented. LIES LIES LIES. Even starting his charity was part of his narcissism, the self-glorification of Lance Armstrong, look what a great guy I am. He is toxic, no one should feel sorry for him, Oprah should not interview him, Livestrong should donate all the money it's raised to a research program and close down. He should crawl back under whatever rock he came from.

Food for thought. After he was stripped of his 7 tour de France metals....he went to Canada and did a speech for cancer awareness and reintroduces himself as a winner of 7 tour de france. You tube....Lance armstrong cancer speech days after titles stripped. Unreal.

I just heard on the news if he does this interview he could be charged with lying under oath (about not doping) and sued by sponsors who feel he defrauded him. Why in the hell is he doing this Oprah interview if that is true?!

Sorry I do not get Oprah's channel, cannot afford it, so will have to watch snippets on TMZ and other sites the next day. Some of you folks sound like you are really vested in this guy, only vaguely followed the stories about him.

I believed him until I read more and more overwhelming evidence. He should disappear. Oprah is desperate I guess.

Lance is a national disgrace. He is a liar and a cheat. He was american's great white hero. He was suppose to be different, better, not like the others. Yet, Lance is worse, a fraud, liar, and a national disgrace.

It should be done in front of the press so they can ask the hard questions. Not some stupid talk show cr@p were most of the talking will probably tried to be directed to his charity.
He should then have his @rse thrown in jail.

Just did some reading about Lance. Anyone hoping he could be faced with perjury charges it doesnt sound like it. He was not deposed by the feds last year during their investigation and the statue of limitations has run out on the last time he was deposed. Lances confession couldnt come until that little annoyance was out of the way. Marion Jones perjury cost her jail time. As for money, if the London sunday times sues, that would cost him 500,000 and he could have to pay 7.5 million to the Tour de France for prize money. And his ex teammate is suing Lance for being mean when he came clean last year about his own cheating. Lance is worth at least one hundred million, I think he has plenty to handle this. What would be interesting is if OUR government would sue him. He rode for the US Postal SVS. Now that could cost him real money. FYI

I'd gain a little respect back for the guy if he completely fessed up. Pretty rare in sports for a cheater to come clean. God, it was embarassing to listen to Mark Mcgwire dance around the issue in his senate testimony.
