Marion Jones gives Oprah first interview after prison
CHICAGO - Disgraced track star Marion Jones will give her first post-prison interview to Oprah Winfrey.
Jones' appearance on today's episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' is to be her first interview since she was released Sept. 5 from a Texas federal prison after completing most of her six-month sentence for lying about steroid use.
Jones tells Winfrey that it wasn't difficult for her to return the three gold medals she won in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She said 'it's the memory that will be tarnished.'

LOS ANGELES - The pain that sent Julianne Hough from the 'Dancing with the Stars' ballroom to the hospital turned out to be more serious than a stomachache - and it will keep her off the dance floor.
The 20-year-old professional dancer and country music singer, who's partnered with 'Hannah Montana' actor Cody Linley on ABC's popular dancing competition, underwent minor surgery Tuesday to remove her appendix, according to a statement posted on her Web site Monday.
Reeves says he didn't run into paparazzo
LOS ANGELES - Keanu Reeves said he slowly moved his Porsche forward to get a paparazzo to move out of the way, but never hit him.
Reeves took the stand in his civil trial Tuesday morning, testifying about his recollection of a night in March 2007 when a photographer claims the actor seriously injured him with his car.
Alison Silva is suing Reeves for damages and lost wages. He claimed the actor pushed him to the ground with his car while Silva was taking photographs.
Wearing a dark suit and frequently using his hands, Reeves described how he tried to get Silva to get out from in front of his car by rocking it and moving it slowly forward, but never hit the photographer.
