Dog Owners Claim Responsibility For Michael Vick's Cancelled Oprah Interview + Rashidah Ali Speaks Out About $10 Milli Lawsuit (VIDEO)

Several dog owners are claiming responsibility for Michael Vick's sudden cancellation of his Oprah interview.  Get the deets inside plus watch video of Rashidah Ali responding to the $10 million assault case filed against her.

 

Michael Vick, who served 21 months in prison for dogfighting, recently pulled out of an Oprah interview after dog owners contacted producers for "Oprah" asking for the chance to confront him on the show.

 

According to the NY Post:

"One of the adopters was contacted by one of Oprah's producers Tuesday night, who said there was 'preliminary interest' in doing something with the dogs," says Richard Hunter, a Dallas radio personality who adopted one of Vick's dogs and is one of his most vocal critics.


"Then, that same night, Vick's rep told Oprah's producers he was backing out [of the interview].

"It would certainly be a coincidence if one didn't have something to do with the other."

 

Paul, (a dogowner who wouldn't reveal his last name), said: 

"I sent out a blanket e-mail to about 20 people at Oprah's production company and heard back the next day that they would take my inquiry into consideration," he says.

"I don't like to talk about Vick a lot, but I like to focus on the dogs -- and I thought this would be a good opportunity to see how the dogs are doing.

"They still have a lot of issues to overcome, but until people see that, they really don't get it."

 

In response to these stories, a Harpo spokesman said this: 

 

"Yes, they reached out to us and we spoke with them and several other groups," he said.

 

"We were still in the planning stages for the show, so I can't confirm if they would have been part of the final episode."

 

 

I'm not too sure what type of redemption the dogowners are seeking from Michael, but since his release from prison, Michael has been part of a Humane Society program that warns young men against dogfighting.

 

 

 

 

 

In legal news,

Rashidah Ali has posted a video of an interview where she denies any involvement in a Greenhouse club brawl that sent a NYC club bouncer to the hospital.  Although Rashidah does not deny that a brawl happened that night, she says she wasn't involved.  "There is no blood on my shoes."

She goes on to clear up stories about her finances and the status of her business.

The Only reason Oprah wanted

The Only reason Oprah wanted Michael Vick on her show was to try to humiliate him on national TV. She would have invited all the white dog lovers to sit in the audience so she could look good by asking him about his past. Michael Vick is focused on the FUTURE....not the PAST.....so he really doesn't care what the dog lovers are saying about him. People need to let this man alone so he can keep improving his life and continue playing football.

Folks, please...this is not a

Folks, please...this is not a racial issue. I along with many other Americans have nothing but disdain for what Vick did - it's up to you if you want to make excuses for his behavior. I for one will not. However, I think Vick missed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reach out to the public by going on Oprah to help people gather understanding. Some of you call it "smart"; I for one deem it cowardly.

Man fuck them dogs and Oprah too she should not of even asked that man to do her show. She all for her self and her rating, she don't give a damn 4 real. You got a man in the NFL that killed a man drunk driving but do you see anybody fucking with him, then he didn't go to jail. Of course he white too, racist ass people wake up Black people.

Who da fuck is Rhasidhah Ali

Who da fuck is Rhasidhah Ali and why do I care? People really get over yourselves. As for Michael Vick...I think it was a smart move. He went to JAIL, he did his time, he is volunteering to speak to kids and he's back to work at what he does best. He doesn't have to keep answering questions. He's not trying to be a veterinarian. He should just keep his head down, do his job and keep his mouth shut. The more he talks about it the more people have license to fuck with him. If he was sitting at home with no NFL job right now no one would give a hot damn. Play ball Mike and silence the haters and hecklers with your game. #thatishall#

Mike, don't do any interviews

Mike, don't do any interviews until your football career is over, these people don't care if you've changed they only want to see you hurt. concentrate on making money and screw they rest. Don't see protesters outside Dante Stallworths house and he killed a man in a drunk driving hit and run 2 yrs ago.

I am extremely glad - in

I am extremely glad - in fact, I'm elated - that Mike Vick opted not to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show for the interview. It's unnecessary publicity that, at this point in his life and his career, he can do without. And, without condoning his behavior, I believe he's paid his debt to society and has PROVEN time and again to be a rehabilitated person. What more could these blood-sucking leeches want? Whatever happened to redemption in American society? I am not one to play the race card, but I am so sick of mainstream corporate America's biased attitudes. Case in point: Tiger Woods has extra-marital affairs (which, by the way is NOBODY'S business besides his, his wife's and Gods!) and it's World War 3. Jesse James did the same thing essentially, and he's just your typical "unfaithful husband." Leave Mike Vick alone, please!

I don't believe Oprah had bad

I don't believe Oprah had bad intentions. Barack Obama already stamped his approval of Vick's perseverance... I believe Oprah wanted her audience to get a better understanding of Vick. Think about it… Oprah’s audience is filled w/ white Conservative Republicans… she endorsed Obama after everyone was saying he was a Liberal Muslim that wasn’t patriotic *hint (she doesn’t care). I believe Oprah wanted to discuss his success story… Mike Vick is the best black QB in the NFL and arguably the Best QB… Oprah knows this.

I mean if they half the energy as they do for sice then I'm sure the world would have some sort of decent view on Americans.

I don't get it... we're

I don't get it... we're talking about DOGS... and a "sport" that was commonplace in his upbringing. There are still people participating in dog fights, cock fights, gator fights... you name it. Further, there are folks that have killed, mutilated, and maimed human beings that have received far less (if any) punishment than Michael Vick has for what he did to some dogs. Don't get me wrong. There should have been some punishment... but, his was to sever for the crime. He served the prescribed punishment so, let him live his life now.

I'm so sick of this shyt.

I'm so sick of this shyt. Michael Vick has done his time. Move on. Look at Ben Rothlisberger, leader of the Pissyburg Steelers. Bastard was accused of rape twice, and his precious career hasn't been touched. Interesting, being Santonio Holmes was immediately moved from their squad after his club incident. Let me say this, the majority of women LOVE Oprah, especially the white ones. If Vick does this show, and is able to convince Oprah he's truly sorry for his action.....he'll be forgiven. When will people understand that Vick is aware that what he did was wrong. However, when you are raised in that type of environment, that type of behavior (dog fighting) is acceptable...it's just that, DOGS FIGHTING. Dogs just recently became folks "children", within the last 5-7 years. Might I add, WHITE PEOPLE introduced dog fighting to us. Learn history asap. Leave this damn man alone. If anyone needs to be interviewed, it should be his punk ass crew. Michael Vick was a 30 million dollar nicca, take one for the team bitch. Do the little 2-3 years, your ass was already in prison before, so 2-3 years aint shyt. Atleast you know your boy is going to "TAKE CARE", damn good care of you and your family. Where them broke niccas at now, somewhere committing a crime, and bout to do some time for it...

All of these comments are disgusting. I understand a dog is not human being, but isn't the point that it's a life?

Just to think a life had to be put down is extremely disturbing no matter when it happened.

What goes around comes around. For all the people bashing him about this old incident you better hope and pray you never get into a shitty situation and need redemption because the same way you don't want this man to move on could happen to you. Mike Vick doesn't owe anybody anything. He did what he was required to do by law and he should be allowed to move on. The public just wants to badger him mainly because the media won't let it rest and the media won't let this rest because he's a black man. Some can call it the race card all they want, but it's the truth! History proves it.
