After the highly anticipated sit-down interview with Lance Armstrong today (which will air on OWN this Thursday), someone close to the situation spilled that the former athlete confessed to Oprah that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, according to Fox News. Gasp! The exchange between Armstrong and Winfrey was “emotional at times,” according to a source, and it followed an apology to the staff at the Livestrong Foundation that left some of them in tears.
According Rae Bazzarre, Director of Communications and External Affairs at Livestrong, Armstrong “offered a sincere and heartfelt apology for the stress [the Livestrong staff has] endured because of him and urged them to keep up their great work fighting for people affected by cancer.” Meanwhile, Oprah tweeted, “Just wrapped with @lancearmstrong More than 2 1/2 hours . He came READY!”
Ready and willing. Armstrong reportedly said, “I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and I’ll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That’s all I can say.” And this interview was so important, that there’s going to be an interview about the interview. (Yeah, it takes a second to understand.) CBS says Winfrey will be on CBS This Morning tomorrow to discuss her sit-down with the cyclist. – Eonline
