Betsy Andreu: Furious at Lance Armstrong for Oprah Interview Admission

by at . Comments

On Thursday night, Lance Armstrong admitted to performance-enhancing drug use during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

But Betsy Andreu wishes the disgraced cyclist has come even more clean during the much-hyped sit-down.

Andreu was mentioned in the Q&A because she has been on record as saying she overheard Armstrong admit to doping in 1996 while he was in the hospital recovering from cancer treatments.

Armstrong told Winfrey that he recently called Andreu to apologize for slamming her as a crazy liar over the years - but he dodged the question of whether that hospital incident actually took place.

“I thought maybe there is a chance for him to change," Andreu told Anderson Cooper last night. "It was such a big step. Maybe I’m stupid. I was willing to give him a second chance.”

Every reference to her in the chat with Winfrey left Andreu “furious" she said because "he could have come clean. He owed it to me.”

“He’s cherry picking the truth,” she said. “If he’s willing to go out on a limb and speak so publicly and say he cheated and lied and defrauded the U.S. government, then why not tell the truth about the hospital room. I wonder why he did the interview at all.”

Did you tune in for it? What do you think now of Lance Armstrong? Do you forgive him?
