Michael Vick was scheduled to make an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” this week, but at the last minute, pulled the plug!
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was supposed to sit down on Oprah’s couch for an interview to air next Thursday (Feb 24) but a spokesman for the show said the football player’s reps called late Tuesday to cancel his appearance for “personal reasons.”
“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,” Michael Vick said in a statement.
The interview, which was to cover Vick’s time in prison, his work with the Humane Society and his return to the NFL, was said to objected by Vick’s team. However, the Eagles say they had nothing to do with their QB’s decision to cancel on Oprah.
“We were supportive of him doing it and we’re supportive of him not doing it. We’re supportive all the the way through,” Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko told USA Today Thursday (Feb 17). “I think he just changed his mind,” Boyko, who says he’s not sure why Vick canceled, continued.
