Michael Vick Cancels Appearance on Oprah Show, Cites 'Personal Reasons'
"I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future," says the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback in a statement.
Michael Vick has canceled his appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
"Michael Vick was scheduled to be a guest on The Oprah Winfrey show for an episode airing next Thursday, February. Mr. Vick's representative called last night to cancel his appearance for personal reasons," Harpo Productions spokesperson Don Halcombe said in a statement.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback said in a statement: "After careful consideration, I will need to postpone the taping of the Oprah Winfrey interview scheduled for February 22. I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future."
Vick missed two seasons of football while he served 18 months in prison for running a dogfighting ring. He was due to talk about that, his work with the Humane Society and returning to the NFL on Oprah.
Oprah Winfrey and Piers Morgan had made a $300 bet about who would land the first major interview with Vick. Oprah pulled out of the bet, and then it became known that Vick couldn't appear to endorse betting per conditions of his parole.
