Bicyclist, Lance Armstrong’s, high profile confession on Oprah
s OWN talk show, that he did indeed dope his way to 7 Tour de France wins has not deterred ABC from offering the disgraced athlete a spot on Dancing with the Stars. He declined. Via Entertainment Weekly:
Lance Armstrong may not be able to race the Tour de France again. But ABC definitely wants him on Dancing With the Stars.
Sources say the ABC reality hit offered the former professional cyclist a spot on the upcoming spring edition of the veteran reality series. Armstrong declined.
Confirmed Armstrong’s spokesperson: “Lance has been offered the show each and every year since its inception. Although flattered he has passed on their generous offers.”
Honestly, who would want to see that? Is there anybody out there still on Armstrong’s side? Lindsey Lohan also turned down an offer to strut her stuff. I’m afraid to ask who else ABC is considering for the show.
