Lance Armstrong Will Discuss His Doping Scandal and Probably Shed a Few Tears With Oprah
Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong will finally open up about those allegations of performance-enhancing drug use which saw him stripped of his seven Tour de France titles last year, cost him several lucrative endorsement deals and made him step down as chairman of his Livestrong charitable organization.
And who better to discuss the complete and utter destruction of his life with than Oprah Winfrey?
The interview — which is set to be 90-minutes long and take place in Armstrong’s home in Austin, Texas — will cover “the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career.”
This will be Armstrong’s first interview since you threw away your yellow Livestrong bracelet in a fit of anger and sadness when you realized your wrist has been promoting a lie. Or since the US Anti-Doping Agency released a report alleging Armstrong used drugs throughout his career, depending on your feelings about cause bracelets.
Armstrong’s sit-down will air on Jan. 17 at 9:30 p.m. EST on Winfrey’s network OWN and will simultaneously stream on her website Oprah.com, enabling you to watch O bring Armstrong to tears on multiple devices at once.
