"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": "The Governor's Wife," the Mayor of Sparks, NV, and should Kathleen Sebelius be fired?

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • "The Governor's Wife" – An 86-year-old politician and his 35-year-old spouse

In a classic story detailing the timelessness of love, on Monday evening Piers Morgan welcomed 86-year-old former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards, and his wife, 35-year-old Trina Edwards.

“What do you see in him,” Morgan asked the woman who is nearly half the age of the governor’s own daughters.

Reading his book while in college, the current Mrs. Edwards admitted to becoming intrigued by the man who at the time was serving a prison sentence for such crimes as racketeering, extortion, money laundering and mail fraud.

“People would come up and tell me all these great wonderful stories about him and so I decided that I really had to see for myself,” Mrs. Edwards told the "Piers Morgan Live" host.

Shortly thereafter, she wrote to the imprisoned politician, leading the two to become pen pals. Next, she paid him a visit at prison.

“Just something draws you to him,” Mrs. Edwards said.

Turning to the elder of his two guests, Morgan asked Mr. Edwards about having a spouse more than half a century his junior.

“It makes me feel very fortunate,” he explained, admitting that he realizes others might find it difficult to understand.

“It’s certainly very unusual, but we’re happy and I think that’s what’s important.”

The couples upcoming reality show -“The Governor’s Wife” – premieres Saturday on A&E.

  • Mayor of Sparks on Nevada's deadly shooting

On the heels of a devastating story out of Nevada, in which a 12-year-old boy killed a teacher and wounded two students at a middle school, on Monday Piers Morgan welcomed Geno Martini.

Speaking live with the mayor of Sparks, the town where the incident took place, Morgan asked for his guests guidance moving forward:

"What do you think — Mr. Mayor — is the answer to this unrelenting tidal wave of gun violence in America?”

Martini firmly pointed the blame at adults whose job it is to look after the nation's young people:

“It starts at home,” Mayor Martini said. “We need to be more cognizant of what our kids are doing.”

  • Should Sebelius be fired for troubles?

On Monday night, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed a polarizing collection of informed guests, all tasked with voicing their thoughts on the fate of US Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, a woman often blamed for the early technical failures of the Obamacare roll out.

“It’s her job to make sure the thing worked,” Morgan told the commentators, before asking “shouldn’t she be resigning?”

Penn Jillette of the famed Penn & Teller magic act wasn't so sure:

“I don’t think we have all the information,” he noted. "It certainly seems that way.”

Amy Holmes was significantly more decisive:

“This lady has got to go,” exclaimed the news anchor of Glenn Beck's TheBlaze TV.

Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill, meanwhile, suggested the blame needn't all be pointed at Sebelius:

“She’s not the webmaster!”
