After being spotted making out around NYC over the past few weeks and the rumor that Lance Armstrong's daughter took Ashley Olsen into show-and-tell, the cyclist was all about the denial. Well, kind of. He told the Page Six, "Ashley Olsen and I are strictly friends. . . . We have hung out amongst other friends, and she strikes me as a nice, smart lady." So he's not saying he didn't make out with her in front of everyone, just that they're "strictly friends." Hmmmm. Well, kudos to him for complimenting her on being smart — not enough girls are rewarded for their intellect these days. Maybe I can get behind this pairing after all.
