Lance Armstrong Hits Two Cars, Blames Girlfriend.

The 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party 3

Classy move, Lance Armstrong.

At least, that’s what the authorities are (snarkily) saying!  Police claim the cyclist hit two parked cars after partying in Aspen, and then let his GF take the blame. TMZ reports:

According to the Aspen PD, Armstrong’s SUV was identified in the December 29th incident — and upon questioning, Lance’s GF Anna Hansen initially told cops she was the driver that night.

She also told the investigator that she and Lance had been driving home from an Aspen Museum Party at the St. Regis Aspen Resort … and didn’t want Lance to drive because he had been drinking.

According to the police report, Anna told cops she lost control of the SUV and struck two parked cars … then returned to the scene on foot moments later and told the owner of the vehicles she’d pay for the damage.

But the investigator didn’t buy Anna’s story … and contacted the valet company that worked the party that night.

The valet told cops … he specifically remembered helping Anna into the PASSENGER seat after the party and Lance WAS THE DRIVER.

When the investigator confronted Anna with the new info, she “became upset” … and said that they had stopped at a market on the way home and traded seats, so she drove.

The investigator still wasn’t buyin’ it.

Get this … two days later, Anna changed her story AGAIN … and finally admitted Lance was driving that night. But now she insists he was NOT drinking at the time.

According to cops, Anna said … “He was not intoxicated, and that was um, you know, I’m sorry I lied to you that morning but I was trying to make [it] sound like, well, I was driving because that was, just, I don’t know … I was just trying to make something up at that time.”

As for Lance, he was hit with two citations. He’s due in court on March 17th.

Eek, this seems like a mess of an incident.  Did Anna really think she could kinda sorta take the blame for her drunk-ass boyfriend? Please.  here were OTHER PEOPLE involved. Like, drivers. And, valets. I’m not saying all cops are Rhodes scholars, but they’re gonna catch you in a lie, girl.

And Lance- I think Anna loves you, but she’s a terrible liar.

Sheryl Crow finally comments on Lance Armstrong and his admitted doping.

Entertainment Tonight sat down with singer Sheryl Crow, and asked her about her ex-fiance, former Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, and his recent doping confession.

“I think that honesty is always the best bet and that the truth will set you free,” said Crow. She claims to only have caught “bits and pieces” of Armstrong’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. “To carry around a weight like that would be devastating in the long run.”

Armstrong, 41, and Crow, 50, began dating in 2003 — the same year that Armstrong divorced his wife of five years, Kristin — and split in 2006.

Last year, a report from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency led to Armstrong’s downfall. The shamed cyclist was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and, until now, vehemently maintained his innocence.

During a series of rapid-fire yes or no questions, the retired cyclist confirmed to Oprah last week that he had blood transfusions and used the banned substance erythropoietin (EPO) during his career — particularly during all seven of his Tour de France victories.

I’m not buying for a second that she didn’t watch his entire interview. She only caught “bits and pieces” of the interview? Girl, please. I feel like she KNEW about his doping from back when they were together, and I also believe she lied to authorities when asked about it.

Matthew McConaughey Pissed at Lance Armstrong!

Matthew McConaughey considered himself a good pal of Lance Armstrong‘s, living in the same city and working out together for years…so Armstrong’s doping controversy must have been a tough pill to swallow for the Magic Mike actor!

On one hand, McConaughey can understand why Lance didn’t privately fess up to him…but on the other, it still doesn’t excuse the lies. He was shocked when he heard Lance’s confession… and anger eventually turned to sadness.

Said McConaughey:

“What was he supposed to do? Call me to the side and go, ‘Hey man, I did it but don’t tell anybody.’ Then I would have really had a reason to be pissed off at him, going, ‘You want me to walk around holding this?'”

What a hard place to be in as a personal friend of the biker.  We’re upset because of all this…being a friend must be downright devastating!

Did Sheryl Crow know about Lance Armstrong’s doping?

Lance Armstrong has now admitted in front of the whole world that he did, in fact, dope during his career, and lied to cover his tracks. How many of you caught his Oprah interview last night? I didn’t catch it (had a Jr. High science fair to attend), but I’ve got it set to record today. From what I’ve read he DID come clean about using drugs during his career, and shockingly, he doesn’t think what he did was wrong. Is this guy delusional? There are some clips from the interview with Oprah below.

Anyhoo – Sheryl Crow dated Lance from 2003 – 2006, which would be the height of his doping. He won two Tour de France competitions during their relationship, so did Sheryl know what he was up to?

Seems everybody in Lance Armstrong’s world knew the truth about the cyclist — that he was cheating his face off — which begs the question … how much did Sheryl Crow know?

Armstrong dated Crow from 2003 ’til 2006 — when they broke off their engagement. During the relationship, Armstrong rode in the Tour de France twice — and won both times.

During Armstrong’s interview with Oprah, he admitted to using every single PED under the sun and blood doping … and acknowledged that everyone who came after him for cheating was right.

Which brings us to Sheryl … who reportedly was interviewed by the feds in 2011 and allegedly provided info in the doping investigation. The Wall Street Journal reported … two sources claimed she knew a lot about the doping situation. Crow has never spoken publicly about the matter.

We reached out to Crow’s agent, who didn’t have a comment … and we tried to find a publicist for Sheryl, but were unsuccessful.

What do you think – did Sheryl know what he was up to? Do we think Lance tried to hide what he was up to?
