Oftentimes, it's Piers Morgan's guests who make headlines for what they say on his eponymous CNN show. (Kirk Cameron, step this way, please.)
But the talk-show host is in the hot seat himself over some very randy comments he unleashed about two very big celebs.
Gird your egos, Madonna and Kate Moss: He's taking aim at ya!
Shall we enter the verbal shooting range?
Morgan spoke with U.K.'s the Mirror and didn't hold back on trashing the two stars.
Let's start with Moss.
"Utterly horrific" is how he describes the British supermodel, adding, "If people actually knew what she was like, they would never, ever be interested in her again."
He claims that Moss literally kicks him whenever they run into each other at public events -- looks like the gal knows how to do much more with those heels than stomp catwalks!
"She's just a real, spoilt little madam from Croydon," he says of the South London-born fashion icon. "There's nothing wrong with Croydon -- I was brought up near Croydon. But she's just a vile little creature."
Morgan saves his most vicious barbs, though, for Madonna -- a celeb who seems to be his favorite punching bag these days.
"She's a complete con artist and those arms are just terrifying," he offers.
"It's like watching Conan the Barbarian. She's looking even more barbaric than ever at the moment, utterly grotesque."
Atta boy! Apparently, in his eyes Madge has devolved from being just a "mad drunken aunt at Christmas," which is how he recently described her on Chelsea Lately while talking about her Super Bowl halftime show.
Guess he's not worried about booking her as a guest. "When I got the CNN job, I banned her from the show, permanently," he says. "She responded by saying she'd never heard of me, but we both know she's lying."
