The former Queen of Daytime Talk, one Miz Oprah Winfrey, proves she can still pull in the big names. Today, Oprah announced her worldwide exclusive interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong. Is Lance going to confess? There had been rumors all week that he might come clean, no pun intended.
Oprah’s press release says, “In the interview, Winfrey speaks with Armstrong at his home in Austin, Texas in the only interview since the seven-time Tour de France winner was stripped of his titles and dropped from millions of dollars in endorsement deals after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released an extensive report accusing the renown cyclist of doping throughout his career. Armstrong was given a lifetime ban on competing professionally. Late last year, Armstrong resigned as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.”
I smell confession, folks!!! The 90-minute Thursday night episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” will air January 17 (9:00 – 10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
Now THAT is must-see TV!
