Last night Piers Morgan appeared with Conan O’Brien and cashed in on his buzztacular interview with Charlie Sheen Monday night. Conan lauded Morgan’s interview the (formerly?) hard-partying and embattled actor and engaged in a somewhat surprising debate over the merits of Sheen’s “partying.” It was surprising because Morgan defended Sheen’s “right to party” despite the fact that it appears to have ruined a number of marriages and can not be a healthy role model for his five children.
Morgan said “I defend his right to party. He’s been doing this for 20 years…he’s fine,” which seems like a rather indefensible position , especially since Sheen’s unique form of partying (“banging 7 gram rocks”) is not only against the law, but remarkably dangerous and unhealthy. For his part, Conan seemed taken aback by Morgan’s insouciance over Sheen’s, before launching into a puritanical screed of party disapproval.
The other take away? Morgan revealed that Sheen had written a personal note on the infamous and alleged drug test result he handed over during the CNN interview that read “To Piers, Let’s get hammered. Love, Charlie.” A funny story, but not clear if its funny “strange” or funny “ha, ha.”
