Robert Blake - Robert Blake Hits Out At Piers Morgan In Explosive Tv Interview

Robert Blake erupted with fury during a TV interview on Wednesday (11Jul12) as Piers Morgan quizzed him about his wife Bonnie Lee Bakley's murder in 2001.
The In Cold Blood star, who was tried and acquitted of the killing in 2005, grew visibly annoyed when the broadcaster asked about the nature of his relationship with Bakley before she was shot dead.
Blake ranted, "Where are you going (with this line of questioning)? No, you're not interested. What are you doing? What the hell are you doing?"
Morgan continued to probe him about Bakley, prompting the actor to retort, "You're not getting any place, because there's no place to get. You're just like the cops. There's no place to get... Why would I marry her if I was going to kill her?
"I mean, I was worth $25 million. I could have hired somebody to kill her when she was in Tibet or some place... I could have hired somebody to follow her for 10 months and make her disappear so nobody would ever find her, for Christ's sake."
However, the star eventually relented and opened up about his feelings for Bakley, admitting he did not know her well enough to love her.
He told Morgan, "My relationship with her was not bad. I felt sorry for her sometimes because God never gave her that little piece of sunshine that he gave me. All the times I could have been dead and should have been dead and would have been dead. But God always said, 'No, here's the sidewalk, little boy. Go out there and dance and they'll throw money.'"
