As you've certainly heard, Oprah has been trumpeting her "no holds barred" (NO! BOOM! HOLDS! BOOM! BARRED! BOOM!) interview with sad, doped up, lying cyclist Lance Armstrong. After denying on numerous occasions that he used performance enhancing drugs, will he finally admit to doing the dirty in this interview? Previously both insiders and Oprah herself have strongly suggested, "YES!" However now it seems, just two days before the interview airs and is streamed worldwide, Ms. O is trying to tamper down expectations. From TV Guide:
"I would say he did not come clean in the manner I expected. It was surprising to me," Winfrey said Tuesday. "I would say that for myself, my team, all of us in the room, we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers."
Watch the interview for yourself Thursday and Friday (it's a two-parter, of course, you know, ratings) at 9 pm each night on OWN, or live-streamed at Oprah.com. Now here's the BOOM! teaser BOOM! for BOOM! Oprah BOOM! vs. BOOM! Lance BOOOOOOM!!!
