Russell Brand's Surprising Sex Substitute

In the beginning, the guy code priority list put "bros" before romantic interests, then money (i.e. M.O.B.), and now Russell Brand has added a new amendment to the list -- yoga.
Yup, it seems the ladies in Russell's life have been taking a backseat to the comedian's meditation habits, but not too far back as he explained to Piers Morgan on Tuesday.
"For the first time in my life I spend more time meditating and doing yoga than I do having sex," the recovering sex addict said, going on to add, "That's only because I do a hell-of-a-lot of yoga. And they're still neck and neck!"
Along with Russell's love life, the interview also covered his new topical show of FX, BrandX.
Russell described the program as "the stories behind the news," saying, "It's usually pretty funny, like, the way that they'll [the media] use the nationality of a story's protagonist to take it in a particular direction ... I just think there are peculiar stereotypes and agendas served."
Piers Morgan Tonight airs weeknights at 9 on CNN. And you can catch BrandX Thursdays at 11 on FX.
