Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" makes quite the splash, inviting 12-time Olympic medalist Dara Torres to the program for an extremely revealing sit down – and, at times – stand up interview.
The first U.S. swimmer to compete in five Olympic games, Torres is training for a 6th, and has the stomach to prove it.
Upon Morgan's urging, Torres rises from her chair, lifts her sweatshirt, and reveals a a sculpted set of abdominal muscles that would have women half her age – not mention the host – scooping their jaws up off the floor:
"Oh, my God. They weren’t kidding, were they," exclaims the significantly less-toned British presenter. "You actually have no stomach." FULL POST
On Wednesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to estimate the cost of repairing a broken heart.
Telling the tale of a disgruntled groom-to-be, Morgan concludes that often times a wedding officiant isn't as valuable as an attorney:
"Love may conquer all, but when it doesn't, there's always a fat, nasty lawsuit to cry over."
As the nation sees piles of paperwork and countless countersuits filed each year, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host feels that a recent fiancé fiasco is as worrisome as they come:
"Meet Steven Silverstein. He's a 29-year-old telecommunications executive from New York, who instead of hearing wedding bells, is now, heading to court."
Having been left by fiancé Kendra Platt-Lee before the two even reached the aisle, Silverstein is suing, in an attempt to recoup funds related to the life they never got to spend together: FULL POST
On Wednesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" rolled out a very special summer menu addition, setting the table with culinary queen Martha Stewart.
Joining Piers Morgan for a face to face discussion on everything from food to family trees, the 70-year-old business magnate revealed the one meal she'd choose, if she were down to that final reservation:
"If I was very hungry and I was told that I only had an hour?," she clarified the question. "I probably wouldn't be thinking about eating, Piers, but..."
"What would you start with?," wondered the host.
"Probably good, fresh eggs. Delicious salad from the garden," Stewart shared. "Boiled, scrambled. Just a really good farm butter."
"And the main course, what would you have?" he followed up.
"That's my main course," she concluded.
Being of British decent, it was of little surprise that the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host opted for another entrée entirely. FULL POST
Guns N' Roses and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Slash joined Piers Morgan on Wednesday for a primetime exclusive interview. The legendary musician talked with Piers about his music, his battle with drug addiction and his iconic style.
In 1996, at the pinnacle of their success, Slash left Guns N' Roses and ended his friendship with lead singer Axl Rose. Recalling their last verbal exchange, Slash said, "I think the last word, basically it was just that 'I'm done.'" When asked by Piers if there was a possibility for the band to reunite, Slash responded, "I don't think it's a matter of that, it really isn't."
"I think you've got a situation where nobody involved wants to revisit - it's not just me," said Slash, "It's the whole, you know, the whole band. And so I don't think there's a price tag that anybody's going to put in front of us that's going to make that work, you know?"
Also on Wednesday, business executive, author and Mitt Romney supporter, Jack Welch joined Morgan for a quick sit down. On topic was Romney's strategy to present his work at Bain Capital as an example of job creation. FULL POST

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Hall of Fame musician and songwriter Slash for an honest and revealing primetime exclusive.
Born Saul Hudson, the former Guns N' Roses lead guitarist opens up about his well-chronciled drug and alcohol abuse:
"No, I don't have any regrets about any of it. And it was a lot of fun. And I think a lot of that whole sort of lifestyle, that freedom of being able to do whatever you want to do and have a good time however you want to do it is all great," says the 46-year-old rocker. "But it catches up with you at some point, you don't see it coming."
Clean and sober now for nearly seven years, Slash tells the host that his passion and commitment to the craft was the key to kicking his habits: FULL POST
Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes business executive and author Jack Welch for his unique blend of financial insight and political commentary.
Joining Piers Morgan for a face to face interview, the former Chairman and CEO of General Electric offers his opinion on the state of the race for the White House, suggesting that Mitt Romney is uniquely credentialed for the job:
"He ought to tak about his qualifications, and private equity gives him incredible breadth of qualifications, along with being governor of a state and other things," says Welch. "But I mean, without question, the idea of being embarrassed because you're in private equity, is the silliest argument in the world."
As the Romney-founded Bain Capital continues to surface as a campaign topic, Welch allows that the former Massachusetts governor may have made a strategic error: FULL POST
On Tuesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to protest the pushing of plasma, as news is reported that a sampling of Ronald Reagan's blood will be available to the top bidder.
Drawn shortly after the assassination attempt on his life in 1981, the glass vial is in the hands of a man who's father worked in the lab where the blood work was done. As Morgan details, the unnamed blood banker has opted against donating it to the Reagan Library:
"He said Reagan would have – wait for it – appreciated his capitalistic endeavors," explained the host. "The seller, whose name hasn't been revealed added: 'I'm a fan of Reaganomics. And I'm sure he would have appreciated me selling it, rather than donating it.'"
With tongue placed firmly in cheek, Morgan disagreed: FULL POST
