Lance Armstrong’s Arrogance Betrayed Him During Oprah Interview

Lance Armstrong Oprah

Oprah’s gripping interview with disgraced seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong left viewers with one lasting impression of him: arrogant.

Oprah did her homework; she knew that When dealing with a smug narcissist, who thinks he’s smarter than the rest of the world, you allow him no wiggle room.

Oprah got right to the point right off the bat with an interrogation-style series or no” questions aimed at extracting the truth in a no no-nonsense manner. When asked if he doped, Armstrong flatly responded “yes,” without a hint of emotion on his face.

He answered in similar fashion to other questions about using steroids, blood transfusions, human growth hormone, etc, to give him an unfair advantage over his opponents.

Armstrong’s sociopathic tendencies were on full display as he admitted to destroying the lives of other cyclists who accused him of doping. He couldn’t remember how many lawsuits he arrogantly filed against journalists and others who told the truth about his doping.

But the most riveting moment came when Oprah asked him about Betsy Andreu, the wife of a former opponent, whom he targeted for verbal abused over the years after she testified against him in 2006.

Armstrong admitted to calling Andreu “a crazy bitch,” and a “whore,” among other insults. Then, without batting an eye, he said, “but I never called [her] fat.”

    • sassyshe

      This is what happens when people expect athletes to be superior human beings and corporations dangle those large endorsements in front of them, they do whatever its takes to win. Not excusing Lance but at this point he could care less – his name may have been disgraced but that man made several millions that will last him this lifetime and his children their lifetime

      There goes those “metal” (or platinum in Oprah’s case) straws in those cups. She had them during her Jamie Foxx interview and now with Lance.

    • Sunkissed404

      Wait a minute. Did he just critique Oprah’s interrogation skills?? “Best question. Most logical question.” He has nerve!! Yeah, he IS an arrogant asshole. That was detectable within the first minute. Oprah had to be thinking, “Why did I sign up for this? When is this interview over?” :waiting:

    • prynsexxx

      :offtopic: b/c THIS ain’t hittin on shyt…….

      I’m kinda, sorta, been thinking about my daughters graduation shindig/party, whatever you want to call it. We not doing nothing fancy. BBQ, POSSIBLY swimming, there’s a pool but IDK if folks gone actually swim b/c they probably got other parties to attend and a DJ. She wants her colors to be “peach & green”. *blink*…. I, myself, want to possibly add cream somewhere in there. Regardless, my question is do yall have any ideas about what I should have as far as decorations (I like balloons n’chit), signature “drinks”/mocktails, food (besides the usual bbq food, turkey burgers, turkey dogs (I don’t eat that but I want to accomodate)), cupcakes, candies, etc….. I have several ideas but I love to hear what other ppl may think/have in mind. Thanks

      Pryn idk how “cute” you want the party to be but cake pops are always fun. They’re kinda easy to do and they can be the party colors.

    • prynsexxx

      @Luv’n

      That’s the thing……I’m trying to sail immediately AFTER, so we ain’t doin’ too much of NUTHIN’! I think I was more or less asking about decoration DETAILS. Like I want to a balloon backdrop or balloon w/i a balloon tied w/tulle. A candy bar with peach and green apple Jolly Ranchers (kids love candy). A peachy type drink or green type drink to cooooooorrrdddiiinnnattte. I seen a drink where they used cotton candy and poured 7-up over it and it was really PRETTY! I’m a cupcake HEAD. I’m also a PEACH lover. I want to TRY (b/c I’ve never had it) a peaches and cream cupcake of some sort. Maybe even a kiwi cupcake or get all “green” on folks and throw in some avocado somewhere (I love avocado). I’m ramblin’ and thinking out “font”, sorry. :ashamed: LOL

      ….In the cups of water you mean? Or me asking about them? Well, I would think the significance of the straws would be b/c nobody wants to put their lips on the rim of an unknown glass (yes we drink water from them but….). You did do a MM on folks having herpes and whatnot, right? And as far as me asking about them, they interested me. I’ve never seen any before. I notice different things and thought they were different. :shrug: :eatme: <—- really says sue me :tea:

    • Trendsetter

      Not sure why so many ppl are upset with Lance…some of your favorite athletes dope up..whatever! I’m so tired of hearing about this…he’s an a$$hole, he’s a bully, he doped up…we get it…he has to forever live with that…but trust me I’m sure Lance can still cycle with the best of them without doping up…trust!

      It happened to Nev

      ************************************

      I watched Nev’s documentary last night and dang that woman was GOOD!!! She covered all her bases, created characters based on real people in her life, but the details were all made up. At the end of the documentary when she was opening up to Nev, I actually felt sorry for her and so did Nev.

      With the Manti Te’o story though, I believe he talked about the girl in a way that suggested that he met her in person so how can her cry Catfish? :shrug:

    • Unshakable

      Good morning roses, buds, thorns, weeds, and fertilizers!

      @this post- I can’t judge him or anyone else. Like a previous rose alluded to, Lance is human. He made some choices that were not in his best interest and now he’s owning up to them. What else can he (or any of us for that matter) do but go forward after owning and taking responsibility for your actions? :shrug:

    • INTENSEMOCHA THE ANTAGONIST

      FOLKS ARE GOING TO LEARN ABOUT NARICISSIST-THEY ARE VERY CHARISMATIC AND ARE VERY GOOD AT WINNING OTHER OVER WITH THEIR ****INESS AND CHARM, AND THEY’RE EXPERTS AT ATTACKING ANYONE WHO GOES AGAINST THEM AND ATTEMPTS TO EXPOSE THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE, BY SABATOGING THEIR CHARACTER AND FOLKS SWALLOW THEIR LIES WHOLE

    • DoNotDeleteMe

      Lance Armstrong’s legacy should be his contributions to cancer research. I don’t care about all the BS about him and the tri-cycle. But no other athlete has contributed to cancer research and advocacy like this man. He is still a hero in my book! :shrug:

    • scorpio

      The funny thing about his whole confession media drama, is that, you can tell in his sick way, he is once again loving the attention this is bring him. It’s like, I have them all focusing on me once again, it’s all about me.

    • ninamosley

      why my mother said, “blame it on the che-che-che-chemo!” (in her jamie fox voice)???

    • PAHairston

      Hello family. He needs to pay back all the money he earned cycling just like President Bush needs to pay back all the billions he spent on an unnecessary war! (Put em on a monthly payment) . As for cancer research, how much more money will it take to find a cure? Just like Jerry Lewis and his freaking marathons. He been collecting money for probably 50 yrs. Has anyone been cured of MS? SMH. IMO.
