Piers Morgan Crashes Erin's Rehearsal, Confronts Her Over Trying To Get Him Fired

The man who–until now–had been CNN's "newest nightly name," Piers Morgan, crashed a rehearsal for Erin Burnett's OutFront, complimenting Erin on her new set and show–but also showing he hasn't quite forgotten the comments Erin made about him on Celebrity Apprentice. "You stuck the knife straight in my back," he said.

Piers (who was not "fired" by Donald Trump as a result of Erin's comments, but went on to win) had a few choice (but joking) words of his own, telling Erin he'd come into her studio and interrupted rehearsals to wish her "total, abject failure."

More seriously, Piers urged Erin to be true to herself and share her views on the news every night. "I just want to tune in at seven o'clock and get your opinion on what's going on. I'm actually more interested in your opinion than the people you bring on."
