Failed Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell Friday defended walking out of an interview with Piers Morgan by attacking the CNN host.

"It was not about the questions of gay marriages, as the producer very dishonestly tried to portray it," O'Donnell told NBC's Savannah Guthrie. "It was, like I said, the very inappropriate, creepy line of questioning leading up to that."

"Wait a minute," Guthrie interrupted. "Let me ask you about that a just little bit though because you walked out of an interview actually at the moment he asked you about gay marriage."

"When they're sitting there pressing you on personal intimate questions and you're saying, 'I don't want to go there.' He could have said, 'What's your mother's name?' And I would have been like, 'Come on, let's stop.' I wanted to stop that borderline sexual harassment that was going on," O'Donnell explained.
