Will Lance Armstrong come completely clean during his interview with Oprah Winfrey? After more than 10 years denying the accusations, everyone is speculating about exactly what he will reveal in the two-part interview.
Bits and pieces of the interview have circulated in the media, but no one is quite sure what he will say and how much he will reveal about the doping scandal.
Oprah appeared on CBS "This Morning" earlier in the week and stated that Lance Armstrong "did not come clean in the manner that I expected" and was "ready" with his answers.
That indicates that he was probably coached and told to choose his words carefully, because the civil suits that could arise if Lance Armstrong gives Oprah a full confession.
Other than that, everyone is staying very tight-lipped about what is going to come out in the interview. In some ways that is probably smart, because no one is going to pay attention to anything else when you have that confession out there.
