Doping Scandal: Arnold Schwarzenegger's Advice for Lance Armstrong

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who weathered his own scandal, has some advice for disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong. The actor told “Extra’s” Mario Lopez, “I think the most important thing is to just say it the way it is.”

He added, “I think that people are forgiving with mistakes, but they aren’t forgiving when you start beating around the bush or try to hide or try to lie. So it’s always the cover-up that gets you into more trouble than the actual mistake.”
Pete Rose, who was banned from Baseball’s Hall of Fame for betting, had advice for Armstrong too. “Take responsibility for what you did… come forward…  and take responsibility. Don't try to hide it and let it go year after year, come quickly to the forefront… you'll be a lot better off.”
Newark New Jersey’s Mayor Cory Booker, who is also Oprah’s friend, had some strong words about the controversy, telling “Extra’s” AJ Calloway, “Cheaters don’t win and you should not cheat, I just have zero tolerance for that.” He went on to say, “I'm glad he's coming clean and I hope this sends the right message to young people.”
