David Cassidy Web Exclusive: “If I take another drink, I'm going to die"

Note: After this interview taped, Monday, David Cassidy was ordered to spend five years on probation after pleading no contest to a drunken driving charge in Los Angeles.

Singer and songwriter David Cassidy may be best known for his role in the famed 1970's sitcom "The Partridge Family", but during his most recent adult years, the former teen pop-star has become equally infamous for his struggles with alcohol.

Despite immense professional success, during a "Piers Morgan Live" web exclusive Cassidy revealed that drinking may have ultimately destroyed his personal life: FULL POST

Chelsea Handler zings Piers Morgan: "Well, maybe that's why your job is coming to an end"

Not once in any of her previous "Piers Morgan Live" visits has Chelsea Handler pulled any punches.

Not when she stressed the importance of "sleeping around with people you work with".

Certainly not when she spoke of her attempt to read "50 Shades of Grey", before giving up, and ultimately describing the book as "poorly written" and "trash".

And not even when the television personality and comedian weighed in on Sarah Palin, referring to the former Alaskan governor as "not a serious person".

So, it should come as little surprise that the 39-year-old star of "Chelsea Lately" held nothing back when sitting across from Piers Morgan on Monday evening.

As the topic turned to social media, the host attempted to pay his guest a compliment, noting "you tweet very amusingly."

In classic fashion, Handler fired back, and not in a loving way:

"I wish you did."

Knocking the host for his lack of focus, the author of the new book "Uganda Be Kidding Me" really lit into her fellow late-night colleague.

"You can't even pay attention for sixty seconds. You're a terrible interviewer," she said.

Attempting to defend himself, Morgan offered the following explanation:

"Well, you just weren't keeping my attention."

Handler, however, wasn't having it:

"That's not my problem ... this is your show. You have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show ... it doesn't matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this show," she insisted.

Morgan continued to suggest that it was the guests fault for not being interesting enough. At this point, Handler went where only she could go, unleashing a zinger that left an embarrassed Morgan speechless:

"Well, maybe that's why your job is coming to an end."

Trying desperately to redeem himself, Morgan went to the well with one of his usual questions, asking Handler about the prospect of reliving one hour of her life.

Without hesitation, she hammered him once more:

"It would be spending this hour differently."

Watch the above clip for more, as the host begs his guest to "be nice." And, for the next episode of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9p.

Duke Porn Star "Belle Knox": "[To] have that sexual autonomy, it is so incredibly freeing"

Waiting tables at your neighborhood Applebee's.

Logging a few barrista shifts at the campus coffee shop.

Even spending Friday night babysitting a couple of your professor's rug-rats.

These, are some of the typical jobs held by many college students. Performing hardcore sex acts on camera for money? Less common. But this is the part time profession selected by "Belle Knox," a Duke University freshman using porn as a way to offset her robust tuition costs.

After being outed by a classmate, "Knox" opted to publicly reveal her identity with an article titled "I'm the Duke University Freshman Porn Star And For The First Time I'm Telling The Story In My Words," which she wrote for xoJane.com. Joining "Piers Morgan Live" exclusively Thursday evening, she spoke of being empowered by her choice to join the adult film industry: FULL POST

Rosie Perez on her "feud" with Jennifer Lopez: "It's really disgusting to me that the media tried to pit two Latinas against each other"

If Jennifer Lopez is "Jenny from the Block," then Rosa Maria Perez might just as easily be "Rosie from the Block." The first from the Bronx, the other hails from Brooklyn, and each used fiery personalities and overwhelming talent to rocket off the "block" and into the American zeitgeist.

And according to Perez, any "beef" between the two New Yorkers has been greatly exagerated.

"I don't hate Jennifer Lopez. I have great respect for her. When I first saw her, I knew she was going to be a star. Yes, we had a tiff and it was 20 years ago," reveals the woman who starred alongside street ball hustlers Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson in the iconic film "White Men Can't Jump". "It's unfortunate that the tabloids try to portray it as something that is current." FULL POST

David Arquette on ex-wife Courteney Cox: "Having Courteney in my life's been one of the great joys and friendships and loves"

His was the lovable role who fawned over – and ultimately found love with – Courteney Cox's character in the "Scream" movie franchise. In real life, David Arquette's relationship with the former "Friends" star didn't finish with quite the same heartwarming flourish. Nonetheless, the man who portrayed Dewey Riley in four films has no regrets:

"No, I wouldn't change anything about that," says Arquette, of his 12 year marriage to Cox. "Having Courteney in my life's been one of the great joys and friendships and loves."

Bruce Dern on his Hollywood legacy and his Broadway roots

Thirty six years since his first Academy Award nomination and with this year's ceremony less than a month away, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" rolled out the red carpet for Bruce Dern, a Hollywood mainstay who is still in search of his first Oscar.

In 1978, Dern's work in "Coming Home" landed him as a nominee for Best Supporting Actor, an award that ultimately went to Christopher Walken of "The Deer Hunter" fame. Nearly four decades later, Dern now has a second chance at Oscar glory, as he'll compete for the Best Actor trophy following his role in "Nebraska."

Described by film website IMDB as a "the movies' premier heavy, playing sociopaths, psychotics and just plain criminals," Dern alluded to being comfortable with his legacy and his place within his famous family: FULL POST

Barry Gibb on the passing of his three younger brothers: "Nobody really knew how to deal with it all"

Coming up tonight at 9, Piers Morgan opens his New York studio to entertainment icon and fellow countryman Barry Gibb, as the former Bee Gees star joins the program for a face to face, primetime interview.

The sole surviving member of the famed pop music group, the 67-year-old shares his feelings on outliving each of his male siblings, all of whom were his junior:

"I did mope around for a few months, good few months. And the whole family did. Nobody really knew how to deal with it all, because it's the loss of three brothers," says Gibb, referencing fellow Bee Gee's and twin brothers Maurice Gibb and Robin Gibb, who died in 2003 and 2012 respectively, as well as Andy Gibb, a solo performer who passed away unexpectedly in 1988.

"He was only 30 years old," explains Barry Gibb, speaking of Andy, whose death followed years of alcohol and drug use. "So it was all of that. And then we had to go through that valley, you know, the whole family. Even now, my mother is still, um, uh, one way or the other, she goes up and she goes down." FULL POST
