“Day one, she sidles up to me. I’ve never met this woman before. She comes up to me and says, ‘So Piers, I’m thinking that you and I could get into a showmance,’” Morgan revealed on CBS’s “The Talk” in February, describing the moment the two first met on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008.
“I was like, ‘Wow, what’s that?’’” he continued, referencing the “showmance” she mentioned. “She says, ‘You know, on The Apprentice, everyone has sex together and then we can go and sell the story.’ I went, ‘You are completely deluded; this is not happening.’ So then she says to me, ‘What, what’s the matter with you? You gay?’” source
It’s what happened after he rejected her that’s getting all the attention:
He said that “for weeks on end, she was the most abusive, homophobic, horrible person I’ve ever met in my entire life. She was saying really disgusting things … vicious, horrible homophobic slurs … and it was disgusting. I’ve got thick skin. Not much gets to me. But I found it pretty appalling.”
