I *Heart* Anderson Cooper

Seriously, what a babe. And now that he has his own column, I love him even more. I love him even despite his “Of course I’m straight!” posturing, like in this piece where he talks about what his mom (Gloria Vanderbilt), who just wrote her memoir, taught him about sex.

It’s taken me a while to adjust, but I think I’ve finally gotten used to the notion of my mom as a hottie.

When I suggested she take the whole cunnilingus thing out of the book, she just laughed and told me I should have a sense of humor about it.

She’s right, of course, and that’s the most embarrassing thing of all. I’m 37 and my mom is still able to teach me something about sex.

a) You’re 37. Don’t use the word “hottie.”
b) By writing about cunnilingus, your mom taught you something about sex? Anderson, please, drop the charade…
c) It’s ok. I love you anyway.

Perhaps my dear Mr. Cooper would enjoy some of this fine literature.

    I’ll be honest, I don’t watch too much CNN but I am familar with him. What makes you think he is gay?

    Maybe what she taught him about sex is that it’s normal for women of a certain age to have it and talk about it. C’mon, we don’t have to think he like, learned something learned something. Ew.

    Well, there’s this.

    See, CNN’s target marketing is working.

    He’s 37 like a foreign-born athlete from a country with shady birth records (Dikembe Mutombo, Jose Contreras) is 37.

    a) You’re 37. Don’t use the word “hottie.”

    Twenty-somethings are so cute sometimes.

    You’re 37. don’t use “hottie” to describe your Mom.

    Christ…

    Chris beat me to it. Should we start using “thou” and “thee” once we pass 35?

    And hey, if you’re Mom’s a hottie, be proud of it.

    no. because none of us actually know what AC’s mother looks like.

    so what we know is “65+ woman described as “hottie”” and the only image that comes to mind his Bea Arthur in a thong, stripping to Nelly’s “Hot in Here.”

    and I hope that image haunts you and Anderson Cooper until the day you die.

    Well, I don’t think anyone over the age of 16 should use the word “hottie,” unless they write for a teen magazine. But that’s just me.

    Yes we do.

    I’m 38. I refuse to accept that Anderson Cooper is younger than I am. And no, I haven’t used the word “hottie” since April 1997.

  15. November 30, 2005 at 3:07 pm

    I’m 45, and I refuse to accept that Hugo is younger than me. He’s far more serious.

    I love AC for flipping out on Mary Landrieu and yelling at her for happy-talking while he was standing near a woman being eaten by rats.

    more the point, but I was getting specific.

    in fact, the only time to refer to your mother as a “hottie” is in the negative. when your friend calls her a hottie to get on your nerves.

    and I wouldn’t call AC’s mom a hottie. she kinda looks like Jimmy Carter.

    Picture more from the time when she’d be referred to as a ‘hottie’…
