Besty Andreu: Armstrong 'cherrypicking' facts in doping admission, couldn't have done it on his own

On Thursday during the first of his two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey, Lance Armstrong acknowledged calling the wife of former US Postal Service cycling teammate, Frankie Andreu, crazy. Betsy Andreu was furious on CNN’s AC360 and very emotional after the now-disgraced cyclist ducked Oprah's questions about her.

In 1996, when Armstrong was recovering from surgery to remove tumors from his brain at an Indiana hospital, Frankie Andreu and his wife Betsy went to visit him. The Andreus would later testify that they heard Armstrong list off all the performance enhancing drugs he had taken to two doctors. Armstrong vehemently denied that under oath and repeatedly attacked the Andreus.

This morning, Andreu joins “Starting Point” to discuss the first 90-minute installment which aired on Winfrey's OWN cable network.
