What Were You Thinking??? Michael Vick Cancels On Oprah

Michael Vick 106 & Park

In her quest to close out Season 25 with a bang, Oprah offered Mike Vick the opportunity to solidify his comeback in America’s hearts and minds.

And this fool is reneging on his acceptance of the invitation.

Of all the moves Michael Vick has made, this is one of the more curious ones.

He has bailed on Oprah.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback — the NFL’s comeback player of the year — canceled the taping of an interview (subject matter: doing time for his part in an illegal dogfighting ring, his return to the NFL, his work with the Humane Society and his future) — with the queen of gab.

“After careful consideration, I will need to postpone the taping of the Oprah Winfrey interview. I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future.”
There’s a report out of Philly that quotes sources saying the Eagles pressured Vick to cancel. Maybe he decided it was a bad idea to do the interview so close to the Westminster dog show. Maybe it’s connected to getting the Eagles’ franchise tag.

In any event, given that her show is going off the air, a rebooking might not be likely. Joe Flint of the Los Angeles Times thinks Vick is making the right move in keeping a low profile. “Going on ‘Oprah Winfrey,’ though, to be given some sort of blessing by the queen of talk is too much too soon,” Flint writes. “Part of what Vick needs to learn and show is humility, and going on a popular TV show to say look at me now is not humble.”

We don’t know about that one. Crying on Oprah is NEVER a bad look for a celebrity.

    I think that’s best

      I think his decision was best for him and his family. I was reading that she also was going to have some kind of animal activist on there and the people who took in the dogs. If Oprah is going to have him on then just have him on he has done his time and regrets it. Let him live his life. People make mistakes and one thing you can say about Mike Vuck is that he is really sincere about what he did and is trying to change his actions. Leave the man alone!!!!!!!!!

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
      Man Please…That grown man dont have to answer to anyone. So what he dont go on Oprah, what is she gonna vindicate him? No, she just wants ratings just like every1 else. They dont care about him as a person. The white AND black(mostly white) dog lovers are still gonna HATE him 4 his past. I say skip it and train 4 what u do best…let ur skills speak 4 u.

  • WithAllHonesty

    Never let ’em see you crack or cry. A lot of Black celebrities/athletes need to learn that. Oprah wants to put him in that situation. You did your time, you made a turn around, you returned to your career and the results speak for themself. Don’t let Oprah pimp/grill you for ratings.

    • Nita

      you know what out of everything i read! you made the most sense! u said it well! sooo true! you did ur time! paid the price! don’t let them see u cry and all that stuff! God knows ur heart and thats all that matters.

  • Nymphis

    mike should keep a low profile.cause no matter what he does to certain people it will never be enuff.

    • chica

      Oprah wants to eviserate him!!

  • Shananigans

    good, i dont think he should do it

    actions speak louder than words, he doesnt need to do an interview w no one


    Screw Oprah! She didn’t want to talk to him during the scandal, but now she wants to talk. Mike go talk to someone who will focus on your playing skills, not one mistake you made four years ago. Oprah is no good for black men unless they’re gay. I’m glad someone shut her down.

      I agree, I could see Oprah trying to pick him apart, that was such a good move to cancel. She hardly has black guess on her show everyone knows this was about ratings.

  • truthbetold

    Good move Vick :).

  • BlackPocahontas

    He was thinking with his brain this time, Ophrah is the Queen of white folks NOT Niccas.

    Besides she has NO right to question him anyway for somebody whose only been ENGAGED for 20 years.

  • ArmyWife

    Finally!!!! Everyone agrees that Oprah don’t give two schlitzs about Mike Vick, I for one wouldn’t give her azz the time of day cause when it’s all said and done, she is not doing it for the empowerment of Vick and his struggle to better his legacy…she wants to make this nicca CRY on national TV!! PERIOD POINT BLANK…end of story. Harpo sit down!!

  • Pebblebeach

    Hey Mike….maintain a low profile off the football field and get on with your life…Going on Oprah is not going to change those anti-Mike folks….remember she is a dog lover herself and thats ok…take care of your family, play football to the best of your ability and enjoy life…you don’t need to be on Oprah rehashing a horribe time in your life…your did a very bad thing, paid your debt to society now just need to get on with your life…

  • http://saynaw Dylan, Dylan & Dylan...I spits Hot Fire!!!

    Lord this is so disgusting! I am ashamed of black people & the support they show for Michael Vick. Has it escaped most of you idiots that this MONSTER is responsible for the brutal deaths of several poor, innocent pitbulls?? Am I the only decent minded black that thinks that this negro should’ve been locked under the jail? JUST PITIFUL!!! I for one really needed to hear that this man was sorry for his actions.

    Anyways, as far as Oprah is concerned, what does her love life have to do with any thing? Hell at least she can hold down a black man & that’s more than I can say for alot of other females…

    • Lisa

      I guess you have never done anything wrong or stupid in your life where you needed forgiveness. May GOD have mercy on your soul.

    • Boondock Saint

      Has it escaped your supposedly black azz that Johannes Mer(however the fkuc you spell his name) got the same sentence for shooting an unarmed black man in his back, that Vick got for killing dogs? What you got to say about that? Yeah, figures…

    • Mrs. Rance

      No you are not the only black person that feels that way. But he did his time and lots of it. I too had a problem with what he did to dogs and the fact that he was just basically an azzhole with no home training to beging with. I believe there is a transformation occuring with Mike Vick. I really believe he is a better man than he used to be. He needed a serious azz whoopin and he got it. I felt that the man earned my forgiveness so that why I gave it.

    • BlackPocahontas

      I’m guessing you would feel better if he killed humans? o_0
      Really? You are this up in arms over some dogs when the fact of the matter is dog fighting was actually legal in ATL I believe when this happened but not VA. It isn’t a crime in several states. Furthermore, a pit bull is a dog bred to fight, it’s built to be a pet.

      people kill people everyday and people act immune, yet you still crying of a dog 3 4 years later.

  • c'est la vie

    I kinda think he did the right thing too, no need to stir up that hornet’s nest again ….

  • iStyle

    Smart move.

  • darealwifey

    Smartest thing dude could do. Oprah was going to chew him up and spit him out. lol


    Two people I know for sure who don’t care about black people. George W and Oprah. Smart move Vick! She was going to MJ and Ludacris sandbag you in the interview.
