Perhaps it’s best that he didn’t go on. Oprah WOULD have annihilated him, and then she would have been labeled as being unforgiving and cruel!! It’s a lose-lose situation for all involved. P.S- I still feel that Vick’s behavior that sent him to jail was DESPICABLE!!!! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
