Morgan repeatedly pointed out that because many fishermen only conduct business in cash, tit was a struggle to make an evidence-backed claim on lost earnings.
"I don't need the type of documentary evidence that you would get from a big corporation," Feinberg explained. "But I have moral a responsibility to make sure this program isn't simply just come-one, come-all ... Pay me on the basis of a handshake -- I can't do that."
Banks told Morgan about her early days as a model, when magazine covers showed off her assets. People thought she had fake breasts, so to prove that they're real, she once exposed them to the studio audience on her talk show, before having a doctor run a sonogram over them so they could be declared implant-free.
"He offered me, I think it was, 150 grand to criticize him boinking his wife," Cowell explained. "Now the crazy part of the story is I said no."
"Why wouldn't you do that?" Morgan wondered
"I don't know," Simon responded, seeming genuinely perplexed. "If you're watching, I'll even do it for $50,000."
Reflecting upon her step-mom, Fisher told 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) about a "double date" she went on with Taylor, Michael Jackson and Shirley MacLaine.
"No one noticed Shirley and I," Fisher quipped, after laying out one of the few scenarios in which she and MacLaine would be anonymous.
Like many of the luminaries Piers Morgan had on during the hour-long remembrance of Taylor, Fisher mentioned how kind and dedicated Taylor was to her friends, and spoke about the empathy the two-time Oscar Winner had for all those who were suffering.
Maher gave examples of these fringe issues, including an incident during the 2008 election in which two members of the New Black Panther Party were photographed outside a voting booth in Philadelphia armed with police-style batons. Maher admonished Republicans for continuing to obsess over this photograph, over two years later, and suggested their fixation has to do with a general fear of black people.
"But, it's time you understood something," Maher said, addressing a hypothetical member of the Republican Party. "Every black person scares you. Unless they look like Urkel, talk like Colin Powell and wear Bill Cosby sweaters, you fill your adult diaper."
Giuliani told Morgan that he goes to Japan on business quite frequently, so he wasn't surprised by how "enormously disciplined" the Japanese people have been in the wake of the earthquake, the tsunami and now the nuclear crisis. But the former New York city mayor is still impressed.
"If God forbid this had to happen anywhere, this is a country that can handle it," Giuliani said of Japan. "They're getting pushed to the point of ... it's really remarkable that they are able to handle it as well as they do. When you see the long lines of people lining up for water. No riots, no disturbances, no looting in any of these cities. Boy, you got a heck of a population in Japan."
Palin stopped by 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9PM ET on Fox News) where she was asked what she thought of Moore portraying her.
"Well, I'm all about job creation, and I guess I could provide some of the gals who pretend like they're me some job security," Palin said. "I would ask, though, if they're of the mind of spreading the wealth around that perhaps they could spring for one of my kids' sets of braces or something, as they capitalize on pretending to be me."
Daniel Baldwin Doesn't Think Charlie Sheen Is Sober and Will 'Yank a Hair Out of His Head' to Prove it (VIDEO)
"I've been in that room with Charlie before," Baldwin said of Sheen's latest webcast. "I know that face, and I know those mannerism, and I don't buy for a second that he's sober, no."
What about the negative drug tests Sheen produced last week? According to Baldwin, urine tests can be manipulated unless someone is closely watching the urination. After clearing that up, Baldwin issued Sheen a public challenge:
On 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' (weekdays, 8PM ET on MSNBC), Griffin explained that she had targeted Willow because Willow had used the word 'f-g' in a Facebook wall posting, a posting that the media had gotten hold of.
"When you're 16, you know, you're really not supposed to use that word," Griffin said. And that's a word you do really tie in with bullying, especially in the LGBT community -- a community I really don't think she really cares about ... Because you can see if you look at the posting, that's not a joke."
"That's not odd," Rumsfeld disagreed.
"It's very odd," Morgan shot right back.
"It's not. It's perfectly normal," Rumsfeld insisted, his wide smile masking his exasperation.
Appearing on 'Your World With Neil Cavuto' (weekdays, 4PM ET on Fox News), Simpson struck back at those critics, claiming they don't care about their grandchildren's financial future. However, in sticking up for the younger generation, Simpson made hilarious scatological additions to the names of hip-hop stars Snoop Dogg and Eminem.
"If they care at all about their children or grandchildren -- and sometimes I doubt that -- I think, you know, grandchildren now don't write a thank you for the Christmas presents. They're walking on their pants with the cap on backwards listening to the Enema Man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg, and they don't like 'em."
Damon spoke about this conversation on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN.)
"The first thing [Clooney] said to me, the first day I met him was, 'don't let them keep you inside,' and that was great, great advice"
"By that you mean physically in your home," Morgan clarified.
Poison frontman and 'Celebrity Apprentice' winner Bret Michaels has long been Charlie Sheen's close friend and sometimes partner in mayhem. During an appearance on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), Michaels expressed concern for his good buddy.
"I'm going to say this, and I'm not being politically correct," Michaels responded when Morgan asked what he makes of the current Charlie Sheen situation.
"The Charlie that I know ... he's a really great guy, and openly admits he fights demons, right?" Michaels continued. "And the same drive that makes a person like myself or Charlie go out there and be nothing but great with the public, nothing but great with acting, is the same drive that can make you crazy."
Bret Baier made the announcement earlier Wednesday on 'Happening Now' (weekdays, 11AM ET on Fox News.")
"The suspension is effective for 60 days," Baier added. "Then on May 1 their contracts will be terminated unless they notify Fox that they are not running for president."
But Weinstein wasn't buying into Piers Morgan's theory that Sheen is currently playing a "smart game" with CBS, because, in Morgan's opinion, the network needs the "massive business" that 'Two and a Half Men' brings in.
"I know (CBS president) Les Moonves," Weinstein explained. "Charlie is playing a losing game."
