Gary Vaynerchuk on the obesity epidemic: "Guess what...I'm born lucky...I don't do crap, and I look phenomenal"

With Piers Morgan having safely landed across the pond, on Monday evening Donny Deutsch returned to CNN's New York studios, filling in for his friend, and in the process, punching the clock with a fourth appearance as a "Piers Morgan Tonight" guest host.

Joined by a roundtable of All-Stars that featured the likes of Gary Vaynerchuk, Stan Van Gundy, Abby Huntsman, and Faith Salie, the television host and NBC "Today" show contributor unveiled his "9 at 9," using his primetime platform to tackle the country's hottest topics of conversation.

On the heels of recent chatter focused around the weight of various public figures – including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and actress Melissa McCarthy – Deutch asked his panel about America's obesity epidemic.

Jokingly wondering if the particular line of questioning was directed solely at him, Van Gundy chimed in:

"I can talk about this more directly, I know that's why I'm here," said the former NBA coach. "Look, it's not like I don't have mirrors in my house. I know the way I look. I know what I'm supposed to do. I just don't do it."

Bringing up the issue of genetics, Vaynerchuk opined about additional outside factors:

"We all have strengths and weakness based on our DNA, and we're picking on certain things..."

Seated directly to the gentleman who loves "to talk about his passions, hustle, wine and business" was Salie, who had a different take:

"Fat people aren't fat just because of their DNA, no no no," asserted the television and national public radio host.

As Vaynerchuk insisted that some people are simply "born lucky," Salie objected once more:

"I'm not born lucky, I work my ass off every day!"

Regularly referring to himself as being very quotable, "Gary V" proved it once more:

"Guess what! I'm born lucky. I don't do crap, and I look phenomenal!"

Chiming in on a debate centered around pounds, Huntsman found the issue to carry plenty of weight:

"I think you should absolutely have the conversation, whether it's with Chris Christie or Melissa McCarthy," said the HuffPost Live host, and daughter of 2012 presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Jr. "But judging their performance as a governor, as an actress, that's a different conversation. But I think addressing the weight issue is absolutely on the table."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, and hear what exactly went down that left guest host Donny Deutsch yelling "Guys, guys! Break time!"

    Faith Salie ought to shut her ignorant mouth! I'd like to talk to her about some things about herself she should change but doesn't...we all have our weaknesses! Ever hear the saying let he who is without sin throw the first stone?! Most fat people know they are fat and SHOULD lose weight, but due to lack of will power, food addictions, lack of energy, depression and/or a million other factors they don't. Shame on you Salie for being a judgmental witch!

    Missing Piers – when will he be back?
    Why are they all yelling nonsense at each other?Among other well thought out remarks: If genes were responsible for such a large number of obese Americans who ate only 500 calories a day – the extreme obesity epidemic would not only affect the US, but the rest of the world as well.
