If you’re going to talk to anyone why not make it Oprah? Lance Armstrong has denied allegations that he used performance enhancing drugs for years. That was until yesterday, when the seven time Tour de France winner confirmed the rumors in an interview with Lady O.
Oprah flew to the Lone Star State to sit down with Armstrong, where he confessed to her and eventually the nation to doping. Winfrey appeared on CBS This Morning today to talk about her interview with the defamed athlete.
The former daytime diva admitted that the cyclist did not come clean in the matter that she expected. Winfrey told CBS that she was prepared to dig, but he very forthcoming. “He answered the questions in a way that he was ready”.
Due to the lengthy nature of the interview Oprah and the lovely people at OWN have decided to break the interview into two segments that will air on two separate nights. “To leave half of this on the cutting room floor after millions of people have been waiting for these answers would not be the right thing to do” she told the cast of This Morning.
Oprah’s interview with Lance Armstrong airs this Thursday and Friday night at 9pm on OWN.
