Piers Morgan, Maria Menounos and the most famous pizza guy in the world

Edgar Martirosyan assumed he was simply going to deliver a few pizzas. Not unlike the pies he's passed out seemingly 100 times before. He'd ring the bell, accept payment and quickly head out for the next order.

But this wasn't any ordinary order. And it was to be no ordinary delivery. Instead of dropping by a typical Los Angeles home or business, Martirosyan's stop on Sunday was at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, and it was Ellen DeGeneres with the rumbling tummy.

It didn't matter that the 56-year-old comedian and television icon was in the middle of hosting the 86th edition of The Oscars. She was craving a couple of large pies and Martirosyan was making the delivery.

"I was shocked and I came out with the pizzas, they told me, wait, the pizzas are for writers," Martirosyan explained to Piers Morgan and Maria Menounos Monday evening. "I was waiting, and then Ellen came out and told me, 'I'm going to tell you to follow me.'" FULL POST

Piers Morgan patrols the red carpet at Sunday's 86th Academy Awards

Once again donning a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, and this time around pairing the ensemble with a Tom Ford shirt, on Sunday evening Piers Morgan stood "suited and booted" amongst the world's biggest film stars, anchoring CNN's red carpet coverage of the 86th Academy Awards.

For nearly two hours the "Piers Morgan Live" host did what he does best: rubbed elbows and traded jabs with the likes of Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kate Hudson, while nearly charming the white dinner jacket off the back of Jared Leto.

For a comprehensive representation of Morgan's night on the famed Hollywood red carpet, scroll down, and dress to impress .... FULL POST

“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. FULL POST

Mark Cuban becomes a billionaire: "I was literally naked in front of my computer when it crossed the line"

His net worth is in excess of two billion dollars. He owns a basketball team, is on television every week and only wears a suit if it's a "damned good reason."

Well, apparently joining "Piers Morgan Live" for an hour-long interview isn't enough incentive for Mark Cuban to wear a suit and tie. But just because the Dallas Mavericks owner wasn't able to channel his inner Justin Timberlake, that doesn't mean he wasn't rather colorful during his visit with Piers Morgan.

"I remember the second it happened because, I was working at home in the morning, and watching the stock, because we were getting close," he explains, recalling the day he became a 10-figure man. "And I was literally naked in front of my computer when it crossed the line, and I was a billionaire." 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

Andrew Greene on Jordan Belfort: "An inferiority complex ... smaller than everyone else ... didn't have his first girlfriend until he was in college"

As the inspiration for both the book and the film, Jordan Belfort's "Wolf of Wall Street" words flew off the page, while his over-the-top persona exploded on-screen. But to some, the line between fiction and reality has been blurred, with bridges being burned in the process.

Andrew Greene maintains that the character of Nicky Koskoff is based entirely on him, and he's hardly happy with the likeness.

A former employee of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont, Greene was nicknamed "Wigwam," a nod to his ever-present toupee. In the movie, Koskoff is called "Rugrat." To Greene however, neither moniker is as egregious as "Wolf," a cover identity he insists Belfort created to compensate for literal and figurative shortcomings.

"Jordan Belfort, who was someone who I considered a brother, is selling a bill of goods to you and to the rest of the world right now. [Belfort] grew up as somebody that had an inferiority complex, who was smaller than everyone else, who wasn't the best athlete. Didn't have his first girlfriend until he was in college. What he's portraying to you is this Napoleonic complex that he had," Green told Piers Morgan in Tuesday's live interview. "When they say 'Wolf of Wall Street,' I'd like to know anybody who can tell me that anyone ever called him that." 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."

Jordan Belfort on the victims he swindled: "Actions speak louder than words"

With the film based upon his life having already grossed more than 110 million dollars, Jordan Belfort has been able to begin taking small steps towards making retributions to the countless investors he swindled.

Tonight, the inspiration for "Wolf of Wall Street," Belfort joins Piers Morgan exclusively for a live, hour long interview, during which the host lists some of the people impacted by the behavior that landed Belfort in prison for nearly two years:

"Peter Springfield: an architect in Mystic, Connecticut, he lost half of his life savings. Dr. Alfred Vitt, a retired dentist, who lost $250 thousand dollars. One victim, called Bob Shearin, reportedly lost $130 thousand dollars, he told The Telegraph Newspaper this," details Morgan, before quoting from the article: FULL POST
