Lance Armstrong tried to put a stop to all those rumors about him dating Ashley Olsen. He told Page Six that “Ashley Olsen and I are strictly friends. We have hung out amongst other friends, and she strikes me as a nice, smart lady.”
So, from this statement it appears that he doesn't think they are anything more than friends despite what Ashley might think. I notice that he doesn't say that they aren't having wild sex every night. She did show up for his daughter's show and tell. I think she thinks there is more to this relationship than just friends.
I love how Lance adds that they have hung out amongst friends. If he meant to say that they have only hung out with other friends present, he didn't do a very good job of it. He's trying to make people think that without lying.
I just hope you let Ashley down easy because, as you say, she is incredibly nice, and very smart and from what I hear doesn't give it up that often. She also has enough money to crush you like a bug. Anyone else flashback to Kids In The Hall there?
