Cold Feet? Michael Vick Cancels Oprah Appearance

Two days after it was announced that Michael Vick would appear on Oprah, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback canceled on Wednesday.

“Michael Vick was scheduled to be a guest on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ for an episode airing next Thursday, February 24,” said a spokesperson from Harpo Productions. “Mr. Vick’s representatives called last night to cancel his appearance for personal reasons.”

Vick released a statement saying, “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.”

You made the right choice, Mike. Trust me.
