Robert Blake on his murdered wife Bonny Lee Bakley: "I think she was a con artist"

Tonight at 9 PM, Piers Morgan goes toe-to-toe with actor Robert Blake in a sizzling exclusive interview centered around his new memoir, “Tales of a Rascal: What I did for Love.” The former star of “Baretta” and “In Cold Blood” was famously arrested for the murder of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, and later acquitted.

When the host asked Blake what his relationship was like with his betrothed before her death, the actor gave a stoic response:

“My relationship with her was not bad. I felt sorry for her sometimes because God never gave her that little piece of sunshine that he gave me,” Blake explained. “All the times I could have been dead and should have been dead and would have been dead. But God always said, no, here's the sidewalk, little boy. Go out there and dance and they'll throw money.”

However, pity and love are not synonymous, Blake later revealed: FULL POST

Jack Hanna's advice when encountering a wild animal and he explains the uptick in wild animal attacks

On Tuesday evening, Piers Morgan invited Jack Hanna to the program to discuss the recent influx of reports regarding animal attacks in the U.S., including a Florida teenager who lost part of his arm in an alligator attack Monday.

Hanna's advice when encountering a wild animal is counter intuitive but very important: "Do not run. People - young people have to understand this," warned Hanna.

"They [wild animals] relate man to food," explained Hanna. "If people feed the gators, then the gator relates that person to food. If you leave your picnics in Montana or Idaho, wherever you're hiking in Arizona, or whatever state has black bears or grizzlies, you leave a food there at the picnic place, they're going to come back."

Hanna also provided insight as to why these alligator and crocodile attacks are more prevalent right now during breeding season: FULL POST

"I was supposed to die in that cell, wasn't I, you bastards," said Blake to "those rotten, bastard cops that ripped my guts out and left me beside the road to die." FULL POST
