Amid reports that he might publicly admit to doping for the first time, Lance Armstrong will be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, according to the BBC.

Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the sport's governing body, following a report by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Reports of a Lance Armstrong admission of guilt - he has never copped to anything, only saying he'll stop contesting charges - surfaced this week.

Will this be the forum in which he comes clean?

ESPN is very sorry that Brent Musberger developed a verbal boner for Katherine Webb on the air last night.

In comments that have overshadowed Alabama's demolition of Notre Dame in the BCS title game, the 73-year old announcer went a tad overboard in showering Webb - the girlfriend of Tide quarterback AJ McCarron - with praise based on her physical appearance.

Watch and listen to Musberger go off about Webb now:

And even though Webb was flattered by the compliments (and gained over 100,000 Twitter followers as a resuly!), ESPN has issued the following statement in response:

"We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that."

Note to ESPN: never, ever show Musberger any Kate Upton bikini photos on air.

Rob Parker will not be returning to ESPN in 2013.

The reporter was suspended for 30 days last month following a rant on First Take against Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

While discussing the rookie's role as an African-American signal caller, Parker questioned the star's "blackness," citing Griffin's white fiancée and rumored status as a Republican.

"Is he a brother or a cornball brother?" Parker, who is also black, actually asked.

Parker later Tweeted an apology, but ESPN said today in a statement:

"Rob Parker's contract expired at year's end. Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RG III comments, we decided not to renew his deal."

Monday was not a very good night to be a Notre Dame player or fan.

Not only were the Irish blasted on the field by Alabama in the national championship game, Brent Musberger wouldn't shut up about AJ McCarron's girlfriend.

They were also blasted on Twitter, with none other than Kate Upton piling it on (and getting in a great dig at the NFL laughingstock New York Jets in the process).

Kate Upton is Beautiful

"It's okay Notre Dame this happens to the Jets every week," she Tweeted.

Burn.

The Boston Celtics defeated the New York Knicks 102-96 last night, but talk after the game was not about field goal percentage or fast break points.

Instead, attention was focused on the tension between stars Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, which reportedly spilled off the court when the Knicks star waited for the Boston power forward alongside the Celtics' team bus.

This video depicts footage of an anxious Anthony doing just that:

Katherine Webb doesn't understand what all the fuss is about.

The AJ McCarron girlfriend was spotted in the crowd of last night's BCS title game by announcer Brent Musburger, who made it clear to viewers that he was VERY impressed by the young lady's looks.

Did Webb find the commentary creepy, as some on Twitter have suggested? Not at all!

"I laughed hysterically," Webb tells TMZ. "I was flattered ... and slightly embarrassed ... but I thought it was the funniest thing ever. I never expected that."

Maybe Webb ought to look in the mirror more often! Watch Musburger gush over her appearance now:

Like many predicted prior to last night's BCS national championship game, Alabama crushed Notre Dame, winning its third title in four years.

Yawn, right?

But 73-year old ESPN announcer Brent Musberger livened up the broadcast - and drew some criticism - for gushing over Katherine Webb on the air.

Watch now to see what happened when the cameras found quarterback AJ McCarron's girlfriend in the crowd. Might this have been a tad inappropriate/overboard for Musberger? Sure.

But have you seen Webb?!? It's hard to blame the guy. She's Miss Alabama, after all...

Grigor Dimitrov is a 21-year old Bulgarian tennis player ranked among the top 50 in the world.

But this up-and-comer sits atop a far more important list than the ATP ranking: he's number-one in the heart of Maria Sharapova!

Maria Sharapova in Action

Reporter Darren Rovell Tweeted on Saturday that Sharapova is "off the market" because she is dating Dimitrov, a rising star who has earned the nickname Baby Federer due to his fluid strokes and one-handed backhand.

That's an impressive accomplishment.

Not as impressive as the fluid strokes he is apparently earning from Sharapova... but still.

Maria , 25, was previously engaged to ex-NBA player Sasha Vujačić before the pair broke up in the spring of 2012.

Already at 15-18 and not included in the Western Conference playoff picture, things are about to get even bleaker for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers, of course, acquired Howard in a blockbuster trade this offseason, but he's struggled to find his place following back surgery a few months ago.
