Now that Lance Armstrong has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs during his years of cycling and Tour de France wins, it’s been brought to media attention that Sheryl Crow may have lied to protect his reputation. Although she denied it in public interviews, sources are convinced Crow must have known about his drug use because she was dating him for two years during his Tour de France racing days, and the two were even engaged during one of his wins.
We may never know if Lance Armstrong's former girlfriends Kate Hudson and Sheryl Crow knew about his performance-enhancing drug use. But if he was able to successfully conceal it from various anti-doping agencies around the world for so many years, the women in his lives were likely duped as well ... begging the question: What chance would you have of knowing your date was a habitual liar?
It's been a long week. Relax with some juicy entertainment and love news.
After years of Lance Armstrong denying the use of performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career, his recent confession is generating intense reactions from many people. The truth is it's often easy and more comfortable in these situations for people to stand on the outside peering in through a judgmental frame.

There are a lot of reasons why Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow might have called it quits. His not-quite-ex-wife. Her touring schedule. Those garish, if not well-intended yellow rubber bracelets. The fact that she sang a duet with Kid Rock. And yet, when the Grammy-award winning singer and seven-time Tour de France champion/cancer survivor finally threw in the towel — after two and a half years of working out, working the red carpet, and working for a cure — it was actually due to something far less glitzy and a lot more human: Crow's 43-year-old biological clock.
A recent Jezebel post about "One Ball Wonders" like Lance Armstrong and Tom Green made me remember a story: About two years ago, when I was working as a factchecker at Radar magazine, one of my oldest friends from back home IMed me to share some terrible news. He had cancer, testicular cancer, and he was going to have surgery to take one of his testicles out. In the weeks that followed, I tried to be as supportive as I could. My friend volleyed back and forth from not wanting to talk about it at all, to asking me if I still thought women would still want to hook up with him if he only had one testicle. Honestly, I discovered it's difficult to find the right words to say in this situation. Of course, since he's one of my oldest friends, I wanted to be totally honest: any woman worth his time wouldn't give a shit, but some women might find only one ball, and the very fact he was a cancer survivor, off-putting. Nevertheless, I'm sure I pointed out that Lance Armstrong still seem to score with women.
