There are some things that never were a secret, like Anderson Cooper and Jodie Foster are gay, Casey Anthony and OJ did it… and Lance Armstrong was using performance enhancing drugs to help him win those seven Tour de France titles. But anytime he was asked about, Lance just denied, denied, denied. You can watch a montage of his adamant denials below.
Well now, he may have finally come clean to Oprah. He taped an interview with Oprah in Austin, Texas for more than 2 ½ hours. Oprah will appear on CBS This Morning to discuss the interview, which will air Thursday night on OWN.
But before he went to go cleanse his soul to Oprah, he stopped by the Livestrong organization and apologized to several staff members there. Lance got all choked up and told them that he was sorry for letting everyone down.
He thought long and hard before finally confessing though. He met with his advisors and legal team before going face to face with Oprah because he could face legal consequences after this admission of guilt.
The way that he worded this confession could have serious legal ramifications. He could face criminal prosecution and civil liability for lying about using performance enhancing drugs in a number of legal proceedings.
He was drinking at Absinthe House on Bourbon Street in New Orleans around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning when fans started snapping pics of him. Cuba got angry and started cussing everybody out. The female bartender told him that he needed to leave and he allegedly shoved her into a wall. Someone ended up calling the police and the bartender told Cuba that he needed to leave. He shoved her again and then took off.
The police have issued a warrant for his arrest for municipal battery and they shouldn’t have a hard time tracking him down. He’s currently filming in New Orleans for this movie ‘The Butler’, along with a slew of celebs, including Oprah, Mariah Carey, Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson, Lenny Kravitz, Robin Willliams and several others.
Not sure what’s gonna happen to him when he gets tracked down.
Cuba, we understand that you are still angry over doing some of your sucky movies choices (Snow Dogs, Daddy Day Care) but you still have Red Tails, Jerry Maguire under your belt.. and hopefully this celeb filled film won’t suck.. You just can’t take your anger out on a lady, ever.
Oprah will be very disappointed in you.
Anderson Cooper finally fessed up to the big not-so-secret… He’s gay.
He came out of the closet last week with the big announcement that he is gay and always has been. A lot of people thought that he just finally came out for ratings because celebs will do anything for a ratings boost, like Oprah admitting to using crack or Kim Kardashian’s big wedding… But Anderson had another reason for coming out. He wants to get married!
A source said that he’s wanted to come out ever since same sex marriage became legal in New York last summer and now he’s ready to take the plunge with his boyfriend of 3 years, Ben Maisani. They are looking at getting married as soon as Labor Day!
She knows that she needs to do something real dramatic to save her network so she wants to put on a real show. She reportedly proposed to her boyfriend of more than 25 years, Stedman Graham, just so she can air their wedding on the OWN network. An insider said, “By marrying Stedman, she can not only give viewers a TV event that will rival the royal wedding, but also months of programming covering everything from: Shopping for her gown and choosing the wedding site to selecting the food and band. There will be bridal showers; even Stedman’s bachelor party will be televised.”
Oprah also offered him a $100 million prenup for going along with it.
It was a bloodbath at OWN network yesterday.
First it was announced that Oprah axed Rosie O’Donnell’s show because of the lackluster ratings, but the firing spree didn’t stop there. They continued to clean house and got rid of another 30 employees. They say the layoffs are due to weak ratings and a poor financial performance, so new executives are stepping in as a final attempt to save the station.
