Tonight: Lisa Loeb reveals her 'real' age

This evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," Dr. Mehmet Oz fills in for Piers Morgan as guest host, anchoring a special discussion on health in America.

Welcoming three all-star guests in the form of Madeleine Stowe, Lisa Loeb and Cyndi Lauper, Oz uses his platform to address issues of aging, reflection, and life cycle.

Speaking to the man who's an actual physician (even though he also plays one on TV,) Loeb reveals that even though many considered it risky, the experience of becoming a new mom again – at the age of 44 – was “pretty amazing.”

"People always ask me about my age and having kids at such a risky age. It’s funny,” said the author and musician, already mom of a 3-year-old daughter, Lyla Rose. “I was trying to get to the perfect place in my life when I had a partner, who's actually my husband, and was ready to have kids and I happened to be in my 40s.” FULL POST

Madeleine Stowe on staying young (hint: it includes not over-exercising): "It places too much strain and stress on the body"

At 54-years-old, one might wonder how actress Madeleine Stowe manages to age so gracefully and maintain such a youthful appearance.

Joining "Piers Morgan Tonight" guest host Dr. Mehmet Oz this evening, the star of ABC's primetime soap opera "Revenge" reveals her secret recipe for feeling good and looking even better.

Admitting that she defies conventional wisdom, the woman who turned in a critically acclaimed performance in 1992's "The Last of the Mohicans" says she doesn't believe in over-excersing:

“I think that it places too much strain and stress on the body, I think that you have to do things that you enjoy.”

Twice earning spots in People Magazine’s Most Beautiful People issue, first in 1994, and again in 2012, Stowe attributes her ageless glow to engagement in her “life’s work” and service in Haiti, where she finds purpose: FULL POST

Cyndi Lauper on "Girls Just Want to Have Fun": "I'm proud to be part of it ... I'm proud for all the things that I fought for"

Coming up this evening at 9, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studio takes on a decidedly clinical feel, as television's Dr. Oz trades his stethoscope for a microphone, filling in as guest host.

Anchoring a show dedicated to health and aging, the man born Mehmet Cengiz Oz will welcome a trio of sensational women.

Staring her sixtieth birthday in the face, Cyndi Lauper is the eldest of tonight's guest, and nearly three decades remove from her Grammy-nominated single, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun."

Seated across from Oz, Lauper reflected on the song that became an anthem for young ladies everywhere:

"I'm very proud. I'm proud to be part of it. I'm proud for all the things that I fought for, to have all different races of women with me," says the woman that VH1 ranked No. 58 of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll. "So that every little girl, no matter who she was or what color she was, would look in at that screen and realize that she, too, was entitled to have fun, because a joyful existence is in - everyone is entitled, not just some."

Despite the title and theme of the song, Lauper admits that she could have lived it's message a little more completely: FULL POST

Clips From Last Night: Who will be the next Catholic pope and former mentor to Jodi Arias speaks out

On Thursday evening, as Pope Benedict XVI officially retired from his post, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Monsignor Christopher Nalty of the archdiocese of New Orleans to the program.

"We really have to think about who we would pick, who do we want to lead the church?" said the former Vatican official when asked to predict the next pope. "I probably couldn't get into any names because I can think of a number of the cardinals there that would make excellent successors of St. Peter."

Also as the Jodi Arias trial continues to unfold, Gus Searcy, Arias' former mentor sat down with Piers Morgan and attorney Gloria Allred in studio.

Searcy, who was the first witness called by the defense, noted to Morgan and Allred that he felt that Arias had an unhealthy attachment to her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, the man she is accused of shooting and stabbing to death. FULL POST
