In the aftermath of Tuesday's fascinating phone call with Casey Anthony, this afternoon Piers Morgan joined host Brooke Baldwin on "CNN Newsroom" to share insight from the conversation.
Joining the Atlanta-based program from his New York City studio, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host detailed the experience, touching upon everything from Anthony's state of mind, to how he landed the interview to begin with:
"Well, it was very unexpected, because I was interviewing her lawyer, and he'd been booked a few days before," explained Morgan. "I said 'Oh, is there any chance that Casey Anthony could call in? Is that even a remote possibility?' And he said, 'Well, no, not on air, but what I can do, is get her on the phone for you right now.'"
As the recent Diamond Jubilee co-anchors continued to discuss Tuesday's now-famous phone call, Morgan revealed what he felt were some of the most-surprising elements:
"I thought it was interesting when she said to me that she was ashamed, in many ways, of the person that she was," shared Morgan. "There was a recognition by her, that even though she had been acquitted of killing her daughter – and she protested absolutely vehemently that she hasn't killed her daughter – that she still had behaved in a way that ashamed her."
