Armstrong Set To Appear On Oprah Next Week

Lance Armstrong better hope he doesnโ€™t get the James Frey treatment. The disgraced cyclist will appear on Oprah Winfreyโ€™s show in a โ€œno-holds-barredโ€ interview, the talk-show host announced Tuesday. Stripped of his Tour de France victories last year, Armstrong has denied any allegations of cheating, although reports surfaced earlier this week that he โ€œhas told associates and anti-doping officials that he is publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career.โ€ Meanwhile, new allegations surfaced Tuesday that Armstrong offered to donate โ€œin excess of $150,000โ€ to the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which polices the use of performance-enhancing drugs, prior to his seventhโ€”and finalโ€”Tour de France victory.
