Lance Armstrong Has Turned Down "Dancing with the Stars" Offer
Armstrong Is Everywhere Lately, But Won't Be Appearing on One Specific Show
By now, we all know, (didn't we always) that Lance Armstron used performance enhancing drugs to help him secure wins in bunches of cycling races throughout his career. And, thanks to the revealing Oprah Winfrey interview witht he disgraced athlete, we all also know (or have a better clue) as to where Winfrey's OWN channel is on the dial. And, while Armstrong has been very public since first coping to the doping last week, he has decided to draw the line.
Regardless of how badly he may want to untarnish his blighted image, the seven time Tour de France (ex) winner won't stoop so low as to compete on "Dancing with the Stars" to try to curry favor with American the viewing public.
The 16th season of the still incredibly popular dance competition gets underway on ABC on March 18th but without Armstrong who, according to his publicist was ,"offered a place on the show ... although flattered, he has passed on their generous offers."
Just how generous? Well, we know that Lindsay Lohan reportedly recently passed on her $555,000 offer to put on her toe shoes.
Think it was a wise move for Armstrong to keep on the DL for a while?
