If you missed it, Oprah briefly interviewed convicted felon Marion Jones on her show today. Apparently, Jones is already in federal custody and was not able to fly to Chicago to appear in person on the show.
As predicted, Oprah went a little easy on Marion (probably due to time constraints). She asked Jones only one tough question about lying to the feds. Jones told Oprah she “made a mistake” and said God would forgive her even if people didn’t. According to radio host Ryan Cameron of the Ryan Cameron Show on V-103, Oprah said it “kills her” when people call on God after they get into trouble.
Jones also told Oprah she and her husband didn’t plan to tell their 4-year-old son that mommy was going to jail. Jones choked up when she recounted how her son was upset that she couldn’t take him to school this morning.
On Friday, Jones was sentenced to 6 months in the federal pen for lying to the feds about her steroid use and a check fraud scheme.
