Oprah Winfrey Piers Morgan Bet

Oprah Winfrey may have beaten CNN’s Piers Morgan to Philadelphia Eagles “road-to-redemption” quarterback Michael Vick, with his first in depth interview since the regular NFL season began, but all bets are off between the two talk show hosts.

One hundred British pounds were wagered between the two on who would land Vick first.

But as a stipulation to doing the interview, Vick’s camp would only do the interview if the bet was called off. The Philadelphia quarterback was jailed for 20 months in 2007 for his role in an illegal dog fighting ring that also encompassed gambling charges.

"I feel absolutely gutted,” Morgan said.  “Although I haven't technically lost. Here's what happened: I bet Oprah £200 for this interview, and then a mysterious thing happened at the end of last week, where Michael Vick's agent rang us both up and said, 'He can't be party to gambling so he'll only do an interview with either of you if you withdraw the bet.' At which point, Oprah, quick as lightening, gets straight on Twitter and says, 'Dear Piers, I'm withdrawing the bet, I don't know why I let you talk me into it, I still love you, Oprah.' "The moment I saw that, I knew what that meant was, if she did that on Twitter, she was in the clear and she had him in the bag! You shouldn't pick a fight with Oprah Winfrey, right?"

Vick will appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show this coming Thursday February 17.
