Chris Brown's controversial appearance on Good Morning America is the latest angry TV face-off.

Former Miss California Carrie Prejean who famously spoke out against gay marriage during the Miss USA Pageant once threatened to storm off Larry King Live. She even pulled off her mike during a viewer's phone call.

"I think you're being very inappropriate and I'm about to leave your show," Prejean told Larry King.
Once when Bill O'Reilly was on The View, Joy Behar and Whoppi Goldberg got upset with him and walked off the set. Barbara Walters didn't disguise her dismay at their actions.

"We should to be able to talk to each other without shouting and screaming and walking off the set," chided Walters.

When ESPN's Jim Rome kept mocking star quarterback Jim Everett back in 1994 by calling him Chris Everett, it triggered an outburst resulting with Everett flipping the table.

"Now I want to focus on making my salad," Stewart said.

Tom Cruise zinged Matt Lauer when the Today show host asked about his opposition to psychiatry.

"You're so glib, Matt you're so glib! You know nothing about the history of psychiatry. I do!" Cruise said.

And Kanye West stopped in mid-sentence when the Today show played the notorious clip of him interrupting Taylor Swift at the MTV awards.

"How can I talk when you are playing that? Please don't do that again. It's ridiculous!" said West.

It was all hugs and kisses between Tom Selleck and Rosie O'Donnell in a 1999 interview until they got into a bitter confrontation over gun control.

"I didn't come on here to get into a debate! I came here to plug a movie!" Selleck said.

"People come on these shows to publicize themselves. And if something happens that viewers are talking about the next day, well, they've probably done their job!" said Stephen Battaglio from TV Guide.
