Oprah Winfrey said Lance Armstrong, who she said confessed to her that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his string of Tour de France victories, did “not come clean in the manner” she expected, Reuters reported.

From paddle boarding to volleyball, Morgan is missing out on the one thing vacation is all about: relaxing.

A failed career should be filled with nostalgic memories and stories of yesteryear. However, for Suzy Favor Hamilton, a 44-year-old, three time U.S. Olympian, her career didn’t fail, it merely moved into another direction. According to latest reports, Hamilton has been working as an upper class call girl at one of Las Vegas’ leading escort services.
Hamilton, who is married to her high school sweetheart and who is the mother of a seven-year-old girl, initially denied the allegations, but ultimately, with enough snooping; it came to light that Hamilton had been earning up to $6000 working as a call girl. Her alias, Kelly Lundy, has been kept under wraps until now, but Hamilton trusted the wrong people and the whole bag of peas exploded.
