Lance Armstrong turns down 'Dancing With the Stars' -- EXCLUSIVE

Lance Armstrong may not be able to race the Tour de France again. But ABC definitely wants him on Dancing With the Stars.

Sources say the ABC reality hit offered the former professional cyclist a spot on the upcoming spring edition of the veteran reality series. Armstrong declined.

Though the network approached Armstrong before his recent doping confession, we suspect Armstrong’s high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey hasn’t dulled the network’s interest. Sources say Armstrong is among several high-profile “big get” celebrities who are regularly asked to join the show. Confirmed Armstrong’s spokesperson: “Lance has been offered the show each and every year since its inception. Although flattered he has passed on their generous offers.”

The news comes on the heels of Lindsay Lohan declining to appear on Dancing this season (and reportedly rejecting $550,000 in the process). We suspect she’ll cave someday.

Dancing will return with a new cast on March 18.

First promo for Lance Armstrong's Oprah interview -- VIDEO

It’s here. The first promo for the two-part Lance Armstrong sitdown with Oprah Winfrey has been released.

In the short clip, Winfrey says, “We agreed there would be no conditions on this interview and that this would be an open field. So here we go.”

Winfrey appeared on CBS This Morning this morning and confirmed that Armstrong confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs. However, she added, “He did not come clean in the manner I expected.”

Armstrong’s interview will air Thursday, Jan. 17 from 9-10:30 p.m. ET, and Friday, Jan.18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN. The interview will be simultaneously streamed live worldwide both nights on Oprah.com.

The move comes as curiosity over the contents of the interview continues, and Winfrey herself went on CBS This Morning Tuesday and confirmed that Armstrong confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs during their sitdown in Austin, Texas. However, she added, “he did not come clean in the manner I expected.” READ FULL STORY
