anderson cooper talks potential 200 mil inheritance calls it curse howard stern

In case you didn't know, the Silver Fox comes from a long line of silver spoons!

Anderson Cooper's 90-year-old mother is Gloria Vanderbilt — a mega-wealthy heiress and entrepreneur with an estate valued at around $200 million. Thus, one might naturally assume that he stands to inherit a pretty penny once his mother passes on, right?

Nope! Not at all!

Howard Stern was hanging with Mr. Cooper recently and Anderson admitted something startling! He admitted he might not see a dime of her cash!

He told Howard's radio show:

Believe it or not, even acclaimed journalists like Anderson Cooper make assumptions sometimes.

The CNN reporter visited Late Night with Seth Meyers for a giggle-filled interview last night and revealed that he actually believed the late night host was gay.

No doubt Anderson's gay-dar was off seeing as Seth just married a woman, but why was he so quick to assume??!

The silver fox explained that he met Seth at "pretty much the gayest gym on the planet."

He continued:

Anderson Cooper DESTROYS During A Debate With Arizona Senator Over Anti-Gay Bill! Watch HERE!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersAnderson CooperNews

Arizona’s state legislature passed a bill this week that allows business owners to deny service to gays and lesbians.

But let’s see them deny that Anderson Cooper just schooled Senator Al Melvin during his appearance on AC 360!

The Senator appeared via satellite on the CNN program to debate SB 1062 - the bill he supported and voted for. According to him, this law will be about protecting “religious freedom” in the Copper State.

But A. Coop had a question: why create a bill protecting citizens' rights to discriminate against gay people when currently there is no law in Arizona protecting gay people from being discriminated against??

Basically, this bill does nothing new, other than spell out just how much the lawmakers of Arizona want to make sure hatred towards gay people stays alive and well in their state.

Anderson told Al:

Nooo! Where will find out HIGHlarious stories about his mom now!?

Having less Anderson Cooper on the TV should be a crime, but it’s not and CNN is getting away with canceling another of his shows!

The silver fox’s AC360 Later, which airs at 10 PM, has gotten the ax, like his talk show did last year!

There’s some good news though. You can redirect all of your AC watching to the regular AC360.

So, get those ratings up, people! We need more Coop!
