Lance Armstrong has reportedly become the latest celebrity to turn down Dancing with the Stars.
Less than a week after Armstrong's public admission that he used performance-enhancing substances during his Tour de France victories, the disgraced cyclist has declined a spot on ABC's dancing competition, Entertainment Weekly reports.
This week, a bunch of sad hopefuls auditioned for American Idol, Dana Carvey sang "The Ballad of Jay Leno" and Lance Armstrong endured a public shaming by Oprah Winfrey. And in spoofs, Manti Te'o made an eHarmony ad and comedians advertised Birth Control Yogurt. Check out these clips and more in our Top Videos of the Week.
Throughout Lance Armstrong's two-part confession to Oprah Winfrey, the cyclist revealed many details about his use of performance-enhancing drugs during his career. But one thing never mentioned throughout the televised interview: Sheryl Crow, Armstrong's former fiancée who was with him during two of his seven Tour de France victories of which he has since been stripped.
So how much did Crow know about Armstrong's use of banned substances and subsequent cover-ups? According to Celebuzz, a whole lot.
A whopping 3.2 million viewers tuned in Thursday to watch Lance Armstrong admit to doping during Part 1 of his interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Celebs who are out and proud
The Oprah's Next Chapter episode was the network's highest-rated weekday telecast in history across key demos and the second most-watched telecast to date, falling shy of the record 3.5 million who watched the hour that featured the late Whitney Houston's family. Additionally, the Armstrong interview earned another 1.1 million viewers in the repeat airing that followed.
The Livestrong Foundation said it's "disappointed" with Lance Armstrong after he admitted to doping during his cycling career.
"We at the Livestrong Foundation are disappointed by the news that Lance Armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, including us," reads a statement on the foundation's website. "Earlier this week, Lance apologized to our staff and we accepted his apology in order to move on and chart a strong, independent course. We look forward to devoting our full energy to our mission of helping people not only fight and survive cancer, but also thrive in life after cancer."
