READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Exactly 11 months since Christopher Hitchens passed away after battling cancer, on Thursday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited the author's widow, Carol Blue, to join the program for a live interview.
Sitting down face to face with Piers Morgan, Blue remembered her late souse as "a wonderful husband, and lover, and chum, and playmate."
During his final days, Hitchens penned columns for "Vanity Fair" detailing his disease and the pieces have since been collected and compiled to create a full length book entitled "Mortality," which was published this Fall. A devout atheist, many of Hitchens' detractors predicted he'd embrace religion from his death bed. Blue revealed that that was not the case:
"He didn't mind at all that they were praying for his recovery ... he wanted to make sure that there wouldn't be some kind of drooling scene at the last moment in which it seemed as if he'd converted, but in fact, it never came up in the last days. So, it just wasn't a subject of interest to him."
Watch the clip, and listen to the full interview, as Blue sheds light into what Hitchens -had he been still alive today – might have thought about the current scandal surrounding David Petraeus.
