Jesse Ventura's Classy Walk Off on 'The Opie and Anthony Show'
Jesse Ventura was a guest on 'The Opie and Anthony Show' on December 2 when he and Jim Norton got into a heated argument over serious topics like 9/11 conspiracy theories and U.S troops over seas. All hell broke loose when Jim Norton accused Jesse of not owning up to statements he supposedly made to the press. That was enough to send Jesse packing. It's unbelievable that the former wrestler did not revert back to his body slamming roots when Norton yelled at Ventura, "Thanks for touching me with your stupid riffraff 'Rocky Horror' hair do". Those are hefty fighting words.
Robert Pattinson pulled off Ryan Seacrest
Robert Pattinson appeared on Ryan Seacrest's radio show last month to promote the release of 'New Moon'. The interview was smooth and straightforward until Seacreast asked Pattinson, "What do you say to your fans who are desperate to know about you and your co-star Kristen?" The 'Twilight' star giggled a bit and just before he could blurt out a decipherable word, his manager swooped and pulled him out of the interview.
Marshana Ritchie's 'Bachelor' Walk Off
Reality TV dating shows are synonymous with petty dramas. Marshana Ritchie of 'The Bachelor: London Calling' responded to caddy jealousy with another contestant by demanding that her arch nemesis walk away from the situation. In the end, Ellen Degeneres was so inspired by Marshana and the "walk off" that she had her as a guest on her show and presented her with custom made sweat pants with the words "Walk Off" embroidered on the derriere.
Dr. Jan Adams on 'Larry King'
Kanye West's mother Donda West died in November of 2008 from of a heart attack shortly after a breast reduction and tummy tuck performed by Dr. Jan Adams. An autopsy concluded that there was "no evidence of surgical or anesthetic misadventure. Shortly after, Adams made an appearance on 'Larry King Live,' in an attempt to recharge his image. Dr. Adams didn't leave the interview on a high note but an angry one. He walked off when King began to inquire about his current relationship with the West family.
Jon Gosselin Walks of ET interview
Mary Hart's mouth dropped to the floor when the 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' dad stormed off the ET set during the third day of filming with Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman. Gosselin responded with anger when Glassman spoke about his children. Hart tried to soften the situation and urged Gosselin to stay and finish the interview. But in a fit of rage, he pushed Hart's hand away as his "soon to be ex" girlfriend watched the scene in horror.
Scientologist Tommy Davis Walks Off of ABC interview
Tommy Davis, who serves as the head of the Church of Scientology's Celebrity Centre, made headlines for walking out of his interview with journalist Martin Bashir. Bashir asked, "Do you believe that the Galactic Emperor called Xenu brought his people to earth 75 million years ago and buried them in volcanoes?" This question caused a fiery eruption in Davis. Even though Bashir insisted that it was not his intention to mock or offend Davis, he didn't buy it. In a tantrum, David ripped off his microphone, threw it on the floor and walked off the set.
Honorable Mention: Carrie Prejean "threatens" to walk off 'Larry King'
Carrie Prejean's appearance on 'Larry King Live' gets an honorable "walk off" mention. Prejean was on the show to promote her new book 'Still Standing' and lost it when King asked her questions regarding her settlement with The Miss America corporation. She didn't exit the room, but it was a close call because she ripped off her microphone in a huff. Prejean responded to each version of his questions with "It's confidential, and you're being inappropriate". Her anger threshold hit a high when King mocked her referring to himself as "Inappropriate King". She then refused to respond to a question from a caller and would not finish the rest of the interview.
