“What's In Your Wallet?" Piers Morgan asks Marc Cuban to reach into his pocket

“What's In Your Wallet?"

It's been asked by seafaring vikings, and Jimmy Fallon. And David Spade. And Alec Baldwin. But in recent months, no one's made better use of the inquiry than Piers Morgan.

In November, the CNN host had billionaire Warren Buffett going into his pocket. A month later he forced his former boss Donald Trump to dig into his billfold, and reveal “I have very little cash on me. I like to keep it that way."

And this evening at 9, Mark Cuban is the latest 10-figure man asked to unmask his money.

"I've got some credit cards, a debit card, drivers license," lists the Dallas Mavericks owner as he riffles through his possessions atop the "Piers Morgan Live" anchor desk. As for some cold hard cash, well, the 55-year-old billionaire expected to find more, until he remembered a recent excursion to Sin City.

"Probably about 700 dollars now, because I was just in Vegas."

While Cuban admits that money alone can't buy happiness – and he'd know, because he has a lot of it! – he does believe that being financially stable will result in a certain sense of calm:

"It relieves a lot of stress," he says, before noting certain qualifiers. "If you were miserable when you were poor, you're going to be miserable when you're rich, because you still have the same issues and the same stresses ... [but] money's a whole lot better than no money."

Tune in this evening at 9, as Piers Morgan and Mark Cuban delve deeper into a range of issues, including a conversation that covers guns, gays, technology, and "Shark Tank."

    You've omitted the most interesting thing that Cuban said was in his wallet. He said "my IU alumni card". If Piers had asked about it, Cuban may have told him that his decision to attend Indiana University led him to become an IU basketball fan. This led him to create an internet company so he could listen to their games, and this is what he sold for billions.

    CNN Begs Strombo: Move to LA and bail out Piers Morgan–We'll pay you big time!
    He's hot, he's cute, he's a skilled interviewer......CNN is currently in big money negotiations to try and get George Strombo to bail out the Piers Morgan show.

    Yes, this is the chance for Canada to finally rule over the Brits.

    The big boys at CNN admitted they were secretly kicking themselves in the shins for letting Strombo go and choosing Piers Morgan instead.

    Apparently there is a head ready to roll at the top for making this ill-fated decision.

    "What in the world were we thinking opting for Piers instead of George–we were blind–we could not see the writing on the wall," an insider from the 24 hour channel confided to this blogger.

    We are desperate–we don't know what to do–we have got to find someone that people will watch, and we think George fits that bill.

    Well, I guess CNN has finally come to their senses.....looked around, found their head and put it on.

    It's about time, isn't it?

    No, CNN big wigs admitted today they loved Piers but they just need someone more hip and more down to earth.

    The top dogs at CNN are in a huge fight right now and some are even setting their sights on the man from New York–Geraldo Rivera.

    "We are just looking for someone a little more America," a different female executive revealed after pointed questions about the decision.

    We want someone who can talk to our people–someone a little more New York with a touch of Brooklyn thrown in.

    "You know, everyone really loved Larry–Larry just was not angry–he wanted to know everything. Larry had that special ability to ask the question and take in the answer without turning the whole thing into an angry bar room brawl.

    Geraldo has that same special talent. Have you heard the people call in to him every morning on WABC in New York?

    If it's the angry granny, the man on the street or the big political talkers–they all call in as if they know Geraldo personally.

    Just like Larry King, Geraldo is compassionate–he cares for the average Joe.

    Yes, it does involve a big paycheck to get the G man over here but, frankly, we needed him and we were glad to do it.

    We are proud to have Geraldo Rivera in our stable.

    Why all the talk about Larry King.........

    Good News–Larry will be coming back to the network, as well.

    Now, Larry is going to have a very special new kind of show......

    Larry will be interviewing the stars of CNN starting with my girl, Fredrika Whitfield. Fred is going to tell us all about her family, her famous mom and dad and all about her career in journalism.

    Fred will also be talking about her brand new weekend hour long legal show. Now this will be an expansion of the very successful "legal guys: with Richard Herman and Avery Friedman. This show airs every Saturday morning with 2 or 3 segments and it has been a runaway hit. Fred and those boys–they tell us everything about the current issues going on in the courts today. It is an interesting and informative show.

    Larry will also be interviewing Candy Crowley, Barbara Star, James Carville, Mary Matalin, Newt Gingrich, and a really good interview with Don Lemon is coming up. Fareed Zakaria and Wolf Blitzer will be giant interviews.

    The big boy said.....these are the real stars of CNN....this is what makes us tick–it is what the public loves and we are sharing our wealth.

    Larry will also do a bombshell interview with Piers Morgan highlighting his relationship with Princess Diana and the media.

    The CNN talker said–just listen to Geraldo Radio today–he had Tavis Smiley and Don Lemon talking about President Obama and his recent statements about race and kids. He had Alan Dershowitz on Kerry Kennedy who Geraldo felt was treated unfairly in her Ambien trial.

    No, Geraldo gets all the opinions, says his own and keeps his cool–it makes for good talk and we are going to showcase it and share it with our listeners. This is a rare quality in media today.

    We will also be bringing back George Strombo, too.

    Piers and AC tried to shut him down due to jealousy and we have finally put a stop to that. Well, we finally interrogated them and they were working as a tag team to take over the world via the airwaves of CNN. We really did not know what was going on but they took off Strombo and just kept running their shows endlessly–the viewers complained and our ratings suffered. Apparently they had been given medication by the interplanetary leader. This person appears on the Earth in the physical embodiment of Cher.

    Good Luck to Geraldo, Larry George and all the other CNN stars....we will be watching your new show.
