Christine O'Donnell walks off Piers Morgan set, David Letterman gets threatened, Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey to star in a stripper movie, and more in today's Daily Scoop.
Tea Party advocate and former Delaware senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell stormed off Piers Morgan's set on Wednesday after being questioned on gay marriage.
O'Donnell became annoyed after Morgan questioned her on her witchcraft history, but became incensed to the point of leaving after the gay marriage line of questioning, according to Morgan.
"Ms. O'Donnell wasn't happy about me quizzing her re views on witchcraft and sex. But really flipped at gay marriage Qs. Ripped mike and fled," Morgan tweeted after the taping.
During the interview O'Donnell stated she was not running for office and for Morgan to ask presidential candidate Michele Bachmann about gay marriage.
O'Donnell was on the show to promote her new book, "Troublemaker."
David Letterman Threatened
Late night TV host David Letterman is the target of a terroristic threat by a jihadist Web site forum poster. On Wednesday it was discovered by the Site Monitoring Service that a frequent poster on the Shumuka al-Islam forum has asked someone to "cut the tongue" of Letterman.
"I have seen with my eyes and heard with my ears one of the scum of the Jews, one of their pigs, mocking the leaders of the mujahedeen," the poster wrote on the forum on Tuesday.
For the record, Letterman isn't even Jewish - he's Protestant.
Letterman is currently on vacation and is yet to issue an official comment.
