Sanjay Gupta on sarin gas: "It's pretty gruesome stuff"

The crisis in Syria raises many questions in regard to the United States’ role in the conflict, especially as the issue of chemical weaponry comes to the forefront. Tonight on “Piers Morgan Live,” the host speaks with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, getting to the bottom of the question: What exactly are chemical weapons?

Gupta begins by explaining that, while there are many types of chemical weapons, it is suspected that sarin is the weapon of choice in Syria. Sarin is one of the most toxic chemical weapons that has been used in warfare.

“Just a fraction of an ounce of this stuff, of sarin, on your skin could potentially be fatal,” says Gupta. “It can be absorbed across the skin, it can be absorbed into the lungs, across the eyes. It’s pretty gruesome stuff.”

Gupta continues to explain why this toxin is incredibly dangerous: FULL POST

Tonight at 9: Lora DiMaggio speaks out in an exclusive interview

Tonight at 9, tune in to “Piers Morgan Live” for an exclusive interview with Lora DiMaggio, James DiMaggio’s sister. This is her first interview since her brother’s death and and the first look at a different side of the man she knew before he abducted 16-year–old Hannah Anderson and allegedly killed her mother and brother earlier this month.

Last night, Piers Morgan spoke with another long-time friend of James DiMaggio, therapist and CEO of a behavioral health company Andrew Spanswick. Spanswick related the horrific series of events to DiMaggio’s painful childhood:

“Well, I still think it goes back to his childhood trauma.”

Spanswick was referring to the fact that DiMaggio had been emotionally and physically abused and that the abuse may have led to mental instability. Other traumatic life events like Dimaggio’s father’s drug abuse and ultimate suicide were also linked to his actions just before his death. FULL POST

Steve Wozniak on "Jobs": “The movie wasn't a quality movie"

Coming up this evening at 9, “Piers Morgan Live” invites Steve Wozniak to share his perspective on Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, and offer details of his relationship with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and their new baby, North West. In addition to transportation and tabloid fodder, the Apple co-founder also offers his unfiltered review of the new film “Jobs.”

The much anticipated Steve Jobs biopic opened this past Friday, and after seeing it, Wozniak had plenty to share. In fact, he made it all too clear that he just plain didn’t like the film:

“The movie wasn't a quality movie. I was hoping for a great movie that showed Steve Jobs, his brilliance, and how he could come up with ideas and argue with people and make decisions," the man nicknamed "Woz" tells Piers Morgan this evening. "Also the nasty side of him, the one that you love and hate. I wanted those emotions again, and the movie was flat.”

Wozniak admits that biographical films are inherently fictional, and that there is no way to recreate the past completely accurately. FULL POST

Matthew Perry on forever being known as Chandler: “At first I thought it brought me down a little bit"

“I admire Piers Morgan because there’s a lot you have to remember,” remarks Matthew Perry, Friday's "Piers Morgan Live" guest host.

Kicking back on a couch, with his arm around Digital Producer Jason Kurtz, Perry reveals that he had a great time hosting the show, which required him to adjust to a new format.

With much of tonight’s program focusing on drugs and alcohol, Perry invites Alby Zweig and West Huddleston to discuss addiction in its varied forms.

Having gone through rehab himself, Perry emphasizes the importance of discussion on the topic:

“I just want as much information about that stuff to get out as possible. And, so I saw this as an opportunity to have fun, and I also saw this as an opportunity to get more of the word out," he tells Kurtz. FULL POST

Anthony Bourdain and Jason Kurtz on the "cool" factor that comes with being a chef

Following his debut as a fill-in host for Piers Morgan (airing Thursday, 9 p.m.), food and travel guru Anthony Bourdain took a seat on the host's couch, opening up about everything from the life of a chef, to the success of his new CNN program.

Digital Producer Jason Kurtz noted that with "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," he'd intended for nit and grit to be a core element – where toothbrushes were forgotten and pipes were shared:

“I’ve been doing a lot of that," confirmed the "Piers Morgan Live" guest host. "But you know, every once in a while, I do like a high thread count and some good hotel plumbing.”

Kurtz then asked about the Emmy nominations, or the “sixteen to seventeen” that he had exaggerated to have existed.

In truth, "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" has garnered four award nominations, which come on the heels of his wildly successful run with "No Reservations." FULL POST

How "The Dirty" dug up the latest Anthony Weiner texts: "She came to me...she was a fan of the site"

Amidst the very public and political uproar that comes following revelations of additional indiscretions by Anthony Weiner, this evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed the man responsible for bringing the latest lewd information to the forefront of the nations conscience, Nik Richie.

The creator of the gossip website, Richie published the sexually-themed photos and text messages sent by the New York City mayoral candidate that lead to Tuesday's impromptu press conference.

Talking live with guest host Donny Deutsch, the man born Hooman Abedi Karamian explained how he obtained the "dirt":

“She came to me. She was a fan of the site, and she confided in me. And, I told her to send me all the information, all the screen shots, because I personally didn’t believe her at first," said Richie, talking about the woman known only to this point as "Sydney Leathers. "We spent the weekend just connecting the dots, and I drilled her. I basically said, you know, you’ve got to convince me if you’re going to convince America.”

According to Richie, Weiners' relationship with the woman began with an e-mail, and grew to involve social media:
