Mark Kelly on discovering his wife Gabby Giffords had been shot: "I just said to myself, is this really possible?"

Piers Morgan sat down with astronaut Mark Kelly this afternoon for an interview set to air tomorrow night. Kelly is the husband of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords who was shot January 8, 2011 in her home town of Tuscon, AZ. While he was traveling on a plane to see Giffords reports started coming in that she was dead. "It was a difficult period of time," he says. "I just got up, walked into the airplane's bathroom and, you know, just broke down."

Tune in for the full hour-long interview Wednesday night at 9pm ET.

    The Marilyn Monroe segmant does not get into Marilyn's mental illness which was said after the fact to be bipolar. You are missing the point.She worked around a mental illness which caused addictionsl. But the bottom line is she was disabled with this bipolar and could not function proplerly all the time but regardless she had goals and dreams and in the good times her intellect propelled her to the star she ended up being.

    Concerning your interview with Mark Kelly that aired on the evening of 27Nov11. While I'm saddened and appalled about the shooting incident that took place in Tucson against his wife and others. I'd like him to know there are gun laws in Arizona, with background checks, and you cannot take a firearm into a bar. The crime was a mentally deranged individual with some kind of axe to grind not the fact that gun ownership is legal in the Great State of Arizona.
