Piers Morgan had a strange interaction on an episode of Good Morning Britain today. The morning anchor, who was in the middle of an interview with Pamela Anderson, had a few remarks that raised viewers’ eyebrows.
Anderson, who’s in the middle of promoting her latest book, Lust For Love: Rekindling Intimacy and Passion in Your Relationship, asked the hosts of the show what they thought of the supposed “sexual revolution” of the 1960’s.
The sexual revolution did more harm than anything, said the Baywatch alum. The small-screen star claimed that the “revolution” inspired awful sex more than it gave good. Morgan jokingly replied that he’s never had bad sex so he isn’t in the position to know.
While Morgan thought the comment was hilarious, Anderson and Susanna Reid appeared to think it was in bad taste. Pamela said that Morgan should return the book then because clearly, he doesn’t need it.
Piers’ co-host, Reid, hid her face in embarrassment and stated that she never would’ve thought to hear such a remark on television, especially in the early hours in the morning.
Anderson said, “enjoy your cheerios.” And while some might think it could’ve gotten worse, the interview continued to venture into an unfamiliar and uncomfortable territory.
When Pamela dished on her past relationships, she admitted that she wasn’t even sure if she had ever fallen in love, despite writing a book on it.
Despite the irony of her not understanding love while simultaneously writing a book on it, it actually makes sense. One of the best markers of an intelligent person is their ability to acknowledge the fact they don’t know everything. No one is more ignorant than a self-proclaimed “expert” who’s not open to new ideas.
A good scientist or purveyor of knowledge looks at the relevant data and adjusts their opinion in relation to new information. Additionally, the former Playboy model talked about her time in the Playboy Mansion as well as her friendship with Julian Assange.
