Abby Huntsman and Marc Lamont Hill on Jason Collins' ex-fiance

Huff Post Live's Abby Huntsman and Marc Lamont Hill joined Piers Morgan on Tuesday evening to help usher in a new segment on "Piers Morgan Live," "Breaking the News," where Morgan and guests take an in-depth look at latest news of the day.

On the topic of NBA basketball center Jason Collins' ex-fiance Carolyn Moos and Collins' recent announcement that he is gay, Huntsman commented on the fact that "she [Moos] was with him for eight years," with the understanding that he was heterosexual.

"She imagined spending the rest of her life with him," said Huntsman. "If I were to date someone for eight years, imagined myself marrying him, all the while him knowing he's gay and not being able to love me the way that I love him and just kind of stringing me along, I can understand why she's shocked."

"It actually opens up a much more interesting and provocative conversation about sexuality," noted Hill.
"Sexuality is very dynamic and very complex, I don't want to create a public narrative that somehow he was being devious or deceptive cuz there is a sort of narrative already of men in particular, black men who are gay or same gender-loving who somehow are deviously deceiving their sexual partners and I think it's much more complex than that."

    Having been in Carolyn Moos shoes (as millions of other women have), she should call Jason Collins out for what he truly is. He's a weak, deceptive, selfish, self-absorbed immature boy who can't be trusted. And he's got a lot of growing up to do.

    Saw your interview tonight with Ben Shapiro talking about Jason Collins. What is hysterical is how many guys come on your show who have so lost the lost the argument they have nothing left but to criticize you for having a British accent. Alex Jones comes to mind. I think that tells way more about them than it does of you. They should just wave the white flag of ignorant surrender at that point. Kind of reminds me of Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda.

    One thing is that one of the most popular incentives for applying your card is a cash-back or perhaps rebate provision. Generally, you get 1-5% back for various purchases. Depending on the card, you may get 1% again on most acquisitions, and 5% again on expenses made using convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores and 'member merchants'.
