Former presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Monday morning. The Romney team also announced Pawlenty will serve as co-chair of the campaign. The announcement comes with speculation that Pawlenty wants to be Romney's vice president.
Before Pawlenty formally announced his run for the presidency he talked with Piers Morgan in April about running for office and if he would ever be another candidate's vice president. His response? FULL POST
Beyonce is expecting – she broke the news during last night's MTV Video Music Awards.
During her June sit-down with Piers Morgan, she played coy about being pregnant. "I always said I'd have a baby at 30," she said at the time. "I'm 29. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. I'm not retiring." Beyonce turns 30 in September. Check out the full "Piers Morgan Tonight" interview with Beyonce re-airing later this week.
Two of the big stories we'll be covering during tonight's live "Piers Morgan Tonight" at 9pmET are Hurricane Irene and Steve Jobs' resignation from Apple. Here's the latest from CNN's coverage of each story:
Irene: "Four governors declared states of emergency Thursday as Hurricane Irene threatened to wreak havoc along the United States' Eastern Seaboard."
Jobs: "Tim Cook has already stepped up to reassure Apple employees that the company isn't going to change, according to an internal e-mail."
Since the death of Osama bin Laden, questions about whether photographs of the terrorist will be released have lingered. But one photograph has become iconic – President Barack Obama and the rest of his national security team in The Situation Room, monitoring the mission on Sunday. CNN.com has put it on a list of presidential 'photos for the ages' and the Situation Room moment is on the list.
What would you choose as an iconic presidential imaget? Check out more of the photos below: FULL POST
In the tiger blood-fueled media blitz of the last week, which has seen Charlie Sheen show up everywhere from TMZ to Howard Stern, from sports radio to network news, in only one appearance did he directly admit to violence against a woman (video above). That interview re-airs tonight – Sheen's wide-ranging, one-hour sitdown with Piers Morgan (his first live TV interview from Monday night).
As Sheen has captured the interest of the media and the Twittersphere, several outlets have covered Sheen in a different way – suggesting the coverage is misguided, hurtful or in some cases, shouldn't be occurring at all. Let's address these concerns. FULL POST
Besides Larry King (live), we're also following several other news stories here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" that may turn into segments in our live show at 9pmET. Here's a look at what we're looking into:
• Reports continue to stream out of Libya.

Piers Morgan's interview with Janet Jackson airs tonight at 9pmET/PT (watch a preview here), and in addition to the revealing sit-down, we have an exclusive excerpt from her book. Check it out below – along with some recipes at the end. Excerpt from TRUE YOU, courtesy of Simon and Schuster.
In 1977, at age ten, I was cast on the TV sitcom Good Times. My character was Penny, an abused child in desperate need of love. I really didn’t want to do the show. I didn’t want to be away from my family. And being on television only added to my negative feelings about my body. FULL POST
The longest walk is when you don’t know where it will end.
The longest minute is when you are worried about what’s coming.
In Alexandria both are in easy reach.
Two hundred yards, that’s all that separated us from thousands of chanting demonstrators. They’d been marching all afternoon listening to calls of solidarity. Now it was night, rain was falling and stragglers were leaving towards us. FULL POST
CNN's Frederik Pleitgen showed a unique perspective in a report yesterday from inside the Egypt protests. How do the protestors, spending hours in Tahrir Square, get food and supplies?
Pleitgen's report shows an "atmosphere of sharing." Check it out above, and follow Pleitgen on Twitter here.
Nic is under no illusions about the dangers ahead. This is major league bad stuff. I am as worried about him this time as I have ever been, in all our years together.
It could have been written as Nic headed for Egypt last week – a lifetime ago now – but it’s a 2004 diary entry, written as he headed to some other conflict in some other, embattled land.
In fact, it could have written in almost any time during the last 20 years. Egypt is just his latest heart-stoppingly dangerous pinpoint on the map. His office may be in CNN’s shiny, impressive London production center. But Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Darfur, Bosnia – Egypt! - these are the places he usually works, on the ragged outer perimeters of man’s inhumanity to man. FULL POST
