"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Bubba Watson returns a champ, from Bullied to Beautiful, and "The Square," a story of Egyptian unrest

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Bubba's Back: Watson Returns After PGA Win

As regular viewers of "Piers Morgan Live" are all too aware, the primetime host has no shortage of jokes and jabs for his celebrity guests. As such, it came as little surprise a week ago when Morgan teased professional golfer Bubba Watson about his recent victory drought.

Having not won a tournament since the 2012 Master's, Watson promptly responded by capturing the championship of the very next event he entered, The Northern Trust Open.

In his return appearance Tuesday evening, Morgan sought praise and appreciation for his role in the win and Watson sarcastically obliged:

“You're an inspiration to millions of people,” Watson teased. “Now I know what not to do in life, and so you inspire people to be better than you.”

  • From Bullied to Beautiful: Plastic Surgery to increase Self-Esteem

With counseling and harassment prevention programs popping up in schools nationwide, bullying has proved to be an epidemic that adults are committed to protecting their children from. But when bullying reaches unbearable levels, and traditional means seem ineffective, Dr. Thomas Roma’s foundation is offering an unconventional solution: a trip under the knife. The NYC nonprofit Little Baby Face Foundation provides free plastic surgery to low income children who are severely harassed for their physical appearances, and in a live interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday night, the founder explained his reasoning.

Seated across from the host, Romo acknowledged that altering the victims, as opposed to addressing the bullies’ behavior, may not be the most socially acceptable answer. However, for children with physical impairments it may be the most practical:

“To think that we're going to stop bullying by attacking the bullies – I mean, it may or may not occur,” Dr. Romo explained to Morgan.

As part of his visit to the program, Roma was joined by one of his patients – 15 year-old Renata, who had plastic surgery to alter her appearance after years of social ostracizing and verbal abuse from her peers.

Fox had been out of school for two years, and a psychologist recommended seeking help to alter her appearance, a suggestion that ultimately lead to increased self-esteem and acceptance:

“I felt like I was a normal kid again,” Renata said of her life post-treatment. “I could actually look at myself without wanting to cry.”

  • Three years later, "The Square" tells the story of Egyptian unrest

Political unrest has exploded across the globe of late, as violent protests have rocked Venezuela, Ukraine and Thailand. Such movements have captured worldwide attention before, particularly a 2011 revolt in Egypt which transformed the face of the country as part of what was quickly labeled the Arab Spring.

On Tuesday night Piers Morgan was joined by a woman who knows the political struggle in Egypt from the inside out, as Jehane Noujaim discussed her film, the Oscar-nominated documentary “The Square.”

Noujaim's movie follows the protest’s origins and growth from the heart of Cairo’s Tahrir Square, and three years since, she told Morgan that though the struggle in Egypt is far from over. “The Square” brings the Egyptian people’s plight further into the public eye, ensuring that change will eventually come.

“Our story will never be able to be silenced,” Noujaim said, referencing her film’s Oscar buzz. “And that's what is so important about this nomination, is the fuel that comes with it, because this is about the civil rights struggle and the struggle for human dignity of our time.”

    Piers moron needs to go home wherever that is or whoever will take him. This ego about US law is just sicking. CNN you will lose more views than you can count if you keep him on. I suggest a test pattern during his time slot.
    At least would not have to listen to this self righteous ass.

    At 16 a teacher ask us all to write what we believe is loneliness, he looked at the writings of all of us and to my pain he picked 3 to write on the board, 2 of them were mine. Then 1 was picked I won!????

    " Loneliness is loving without being loved!" My life has been this saying before and since. I always thought I was just not likeable enough. I am always full of loneliness and hate @ 16 I won. Cynthia

    Gayle King said that she "thinks" women feel loneliness more than men. Dr. Gupta nodded. I have served as a volunteer at "The Listening Post" here in Anchorage for over 5 yrs. Our only overhead is rent as we are all volunteers with no agenda. We do not counsel but offer compassionate listening to our visitors who just walk in our door located at the transit center. We have listened to over 8000 visitors in 5 yrs. 70%+ of our visitors are men. They just come by and we offer them tea and they share their stories of life....joys, grief, ideas...many have mental illness, homesless...it doesn't matter. We all need a "good listenin' to" at times. As Oprah mentioned, we all want to have our value affirmed. This is not gender specific. When we not only say "hello" but listen with "presence", the listener heals and grows as well as the person we are listening to. Compassionate listening without judgement is something we all benefit from...

  4. Silent epidemic

    Dr Gupta, Please discuses what causing Estrangement in epidemic proportion. This is not your common virus or your winter blues.

    " Estrange Stories " was started as a blog by a mom who was not willing to give up on her boys who estranged them today has over 3000 member & growing. This a vicious and silent epidemic no different than Aspergers or Autism that needs to be addressed. Is this another mental illness? Please google.

    If our children can discarded us as easily without any feeling to be replace by Facebook & texting friends what will they be teaching there children? What happens when there FB friends & texting friends move on? What is making our adult children so lonely? Family sees the red flag first, this cause the estrangement instead of getting mental health help.

    You don't have to have a brain to be in television, in fact if you have one and it functions, that could be a fatal liability. Who's the bigger imbecile, Piers Morgan who thought he'd use his program to pontificate to the American People about things he knows nothing about including his crude-sade for abolishing private gun ownership or the people who hired him and kept him around for three years? Why did it take them so long to realize their blunder. Anyway I've got ole Betsy next to the fireplace. If dem Redcoats ever show up hear again me and Betsy are ready to fill their hides with buckshot. Good riddance Mr. Morgan. Safe flight home to merry ole. Next time try Australia.

    Now that we have disposed of Piers Morgan, I hear we are going to get Simon Cowell here. Doesn't Britain's revenge against Americans for breaking away from the UK never end? Are we to be inundated with an endless parade of poster boys and girls who prove why Scotland wants to divorce itself from England? Out Out damned spot! And don't let the door hit you in the derriere on the way out. You know what Britain? Go Brexit yourself!
