Controversial Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has canceled his appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," which was scheduled to air Feb. 24, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

A Harpo Productions representative said Vick’s reps called to cancel his appearance "for personal reasons," the story notes.

The appearance would have marked Vick’s first high-profile interview to discuss his dog-fighting past, which led to a prison sentence, the piece says. Winfrey had a made a bet with CNN’s Piers Morgan about who would score an interview with Vick first, wagering 200 British pounds, or about $300.

Morgan issued a tweet after the cancellation, noting, "I’m here if you need me, Kind regards Piers," the story adds.
