Buffett's parenting style

Tonight, on "Piers Morgan Live," Piers Morgan welcomes perhaps the most financially savvy panel he’s ever assembled on his set: billionaire businessman Warren Buffett, his son Howard G., and grandson Howard W., to talk fortunes and Buffett family values. As the most successful investor of the 20th century, the senior Buffett had assembled a vast fortune by the time his first son was born in 1954, but never strayed from the lessons learned through his own modest, Midwestern upbringing of self-reliance and frugality.

Citing an example of perhaps a father-son deal gone wrong, Howard G. tells Morgan of a rather odd deal he struck with dad Warren over rent on some land the eldest son wanted to farm. “Actually that was 400 acres that (my son) farms now and the deal was that the rent amount would be based on my weight,” says Howard G.

“Warren what were you thinking?” asks Morgan, continuing, “so, it was literally paid that if you put on weight, the rent went up?”

“Yeah, and I started feeding him candy and pie and all this” notes Warren with a chuckle. “This was not a brilliant moment in parenting.”

None of three Buffett children ever completed college, a fact that doesn’t bother Warren in the least. “I didn't want to go to college myself. My dad talked me into it,” says Warren, who counts the prestigious Wharton School and Columbia Business School among his alma maters. “I think my kids got a wonderful education in public school. They went to the same school that their grandfather did, their mother. ... the inner city school that's been between 20 and 35 percent black for 75 years. They saw the real world and they saw what America is all about, and I think it was a great education,” says Warren, echoing the core values he’s lived his life by despite his immense fortune.

Morgans asks the patricarch how his son and grandson dealt with being born into a family with such tremendous wealth, Warren responds, “They never felt that it was going to be passed on to create some dynasty or something. I always felt that we would live wonderfully, and then the rest will go back to society, and that's been the plan since I was in my 20s.” Warren plans to give the bulk of his fortune to charity.

Jessica Seinfeld on cooking for idiots and geniuses, and her husband Jerry's position in the kitchen

Tonight, Piers Morgan welcomes Jessica Seinfeld, mom of three, wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld, and author of three cookbooks, including her latest, “The Can’t Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified.” 

In a fun and lighthearted interview, on a set laden with delicious looking dishes, Seinfeld talks about why she wrote the book and how she hopes it can help even someone like Morgan, who admits to being “hopeless” in the kitchen, despite the boast that he does make one great dish –  a killer spaghetti Bolognese.

“I took four years writing the book for people like – you use the word 'idiot' – I use the word 'genius,'” Seinfeld says of her target audience. “Genius is like my husband, who is good at everything else ... but I feel like this book is great for you, too, because you can get in and out of the kitchen really quickly. The recipes are for everyone.”

Asked if her famous funnyman husband ever cooks for her, Seinfeld said he does not, but notes that her writing has at least served to stir up his interest: FULL POST

Debra Messing and Eric McCormack reflect on the impact of "Will & Grace"

If you were a fan of Must See TV in the late 1990s, you were undoubtedly familiar with NBC’s groundbreaking sitcom, Will & Grace, which featured, for the first time on primetime TV, two openly gay lead characters. With 16 Emmy Awards under its belt, this highly rated and critical acclaimed show paved the way for many more trailblazing shows to follow, and lives on in its new home on WeTV and LOGO TV, starting this Fall.

Piers Morgan welcomed the two stars of the show, Will McCormack & Debra Messing, to his studio for a nostalgic look back at this culturally important series.

In an interview which was seen as the first public endorsement of same sex marriage by a member of the administration, Morgan cited Vice President Joe Biden, on NBC’s Meet the Press, who said “I think “Will & Grace" did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody has ever done so far.”

Piers asked both guests what they made of that incredible tribute, which eventually led to the President openly endorsing gay marriage as well: FULL POST

Piers Morgan asks Marie Osmond the pressing question, “Do you Twerk?”

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan welcomes the sole female member of the legendary Osmond clan, and one half of a famous brother/sister Las Vegas performing duo, as Marie Osmond joins him in studio for a primetime, face to face interview.

Staring across the desk at a business woman, former child star, and performer with a career spanning half a century, Morgan asks his guest about the latest crop of young female entertainers, leading off with the most probing of all questions.

“Do you twerk?” he asks Osmond.

“I work,” she deadpans, likely using the two words to send a much broader message. FULL POST

Former Prisoner Of War Jessica Lynch spoke exclusively to Piers Morgan last night about the Marine "desecration video", calling the actions of the soldiers "a disgrace" and "not anything we were ever taught to do as soldiers."
