Jesse Ventura: Sarah Palin will be 2012 GOP nominee, and "she'll do what she's told"

Jesse Ventura will be a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" Monday night for the hour, and the wide-ranging interview touches on conspiracies, foreign policy and more. But in a green room Q&A after the interview, we asked Ventura about who he thinks will be the 2012 GOP nominee. Even though he despises both parties ("I'm an equal-opportunity despiser") he made his choice: Sarah Palin. "They're grooming her for it, she's got a TV show. It seems that elections today are more popularity than they are substantial issues," he said. "She's the type of person that certainly will be controlled by the status quo and the power structure. So she'd make a perfect candidate for them, she'll do what she's told."

There were a few very contentious moments during the interview. So what did Ventura think of Piers Morgan? FULL POST

As for his return to the WWE and hosting Wrestlemania on Sunday: "I think it's going to be electric...for me as an actor, to be able to host, live, 75,000 people, dream come true." And is this a hint for things to come? "I get to kick ass, literally," he said.

Johnson recently joined Twitter, which he says he was "reluctant to engage in" before learning more about it. But now: "I love the interaction. Sometimes I'll sit down for two hours and just answer questions." So what does he think of fellow Wrestlemania participant Snooki of "Jersey Shore" (and Piers Morgan)? FULL POST

Donny Deutsch green room interview: Are "Piers Morgan Tonight" promos hype or fact?

Following his interview with Piers Morgan last week (airing tonight, 9pmET/PT), we talked to Donny Deutsch of Bravo's new "Love Calling" in the green room. The "love guru" put on his advertising exec hat to critique all the "Piers Morgan Tonight" promos that aired in the run-up to the show's launch. "It's honest, it's real. Great advertising is truthful and authentic," said Deutsch after watching the promo. "The worst advertising in the world is something that's not truthful."

As for the interview, Deutsch noted how much Piers focused on money, power...and his apartment. "Complete jealousy," he said. "He was bitter, he was angry, but he came clean about it." Check out Deutsch and the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" on tonight's Valentine's Day show.
