The nastiest ongoing celebrity feuds

The Nastiest Ongoing Celebrity Feuds

Can't we all just get along? If you're a celebrity with access to Twitter, it seems like the answer is ... no.

After Larry King called Piers Morgan "pompous" during an interview, Piers fired back on Twitter, calling Larry "a graceless old toad." Those sure are fighting words!

Larry's wife Shawn recently got involved, saying, "I'm tired [of] your name calling of my husband." Morgan's response? "If Larry can't fight his own battles, tell him to stop being such a graceless old toad." Recently, though, Morgan offered peace with a short post that said "let's settle this".

But the Morgan vs. Piers battle isn't the only Twitter fight we've seen recently. Justin Bieber should be "confident" with 53 million twitter followers to back him up. When he lost his fight with Orlando Bloom -- reportedly over Miranda Kerr -- and tried to save face by instagramming a photo of Miranda and then one of Orlando Bloom, even "beliebers" couldn't stick up for Justin.

Some fights have spanned years. Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes have been duking it out since 2011. Brandi has been able to parlay her battles into big business. Her Twitter feud has spawned two books for The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills.

While the feuds are different, there is one constant: they have all been at least partially fought on Twitter. Cooper Lawrence, psychologist and author of "The Cult of Celebrity," explained why we're seeing more of these battles fought online.

"If you're being interviewed by somebody, you're not as likely to say how you really feel, there's publicists sitting there," said Cooper. "But when you're home alone in front of your computer, you feel more comfortable."

Piers Morgan is no celebrity.
He is the poster child for the stereotypical pompous Brit a$$.

Gives ol' Larry a reason to live. Gives Piers some badly needed attention because otherwise we would forget the idiot.

Piers doesn't need the attention. He has many other projects and work interests he's involved with. It's Larry who is the picture of what not to become when you're old.

Larry King, A gentlemen and a scholar.
Piers Morgan: An Anti-American that just got lucky on CNN. Shows how much trash they put on the news today.

King is no gentleman. A 24 yr. old female journalism student, a very attractive blond, got an interview with him at his home some years ago. Within minutes he asked this lady, a perfect stranger, to spend the night with him. She had her tape recorder running and made this unseemly event public, and we heard the tape. This kind of attempted seduction shows King to be a pig in my book. The lady had the good sense to get the heck out of there and was probably repulsed by even a thought of staying with Larry baby.

And she probably never worked in the industry since. Most of these celebreties are vindictive little men.

What rock did you crawl out from under? If you think Larry King is a gentlemen and a scholar then he should be kicked out of this country immediately. He is nothing but a senile broken down old bastard who should have been put out to pasture years ago.

I never thought I would stand up for a royal or a brit...but against Larry King it's no problem at all..the level of intelligence and education leaves King at the bottom of the barrel..not to forget his "rude"handling of the little people on his show.

Paul: You have it completely reversed. It was Piers that felt his words were more important than his guests on the show . He constantly interrupted people on his show. It was so irritating, to say the least. Larry had a class to listen to what his guests had to say. Piers, good riddance.
