There is at least one person who feels empathy for Lance Armstrong in the wake of his shocking doping confession: his ex-fiancée, Sheryl Crow.
Following the cyclist's televised admission to Oprah Winfrey, Crow, 50, appeared on Entertainment Tonight, where she briefly discussed the scandal surrounding her ex.
"I know how hard he worked to win those titles, and you know, it was hard to watch," Crow said, referring to his Tour de France wins. (In August, Armstrong, 41, was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.)
