Anderson Cooper covers wars, has been under attack in Egypt and reported through hurricanes. But he also knows a good entertainment story when he sees one—spray tanning himself with Snooki, admitting to being a big fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and dragging best bud Kathy Griffin along to the unveiling of his wax figure, which he said "looks like a jerk."
So it's no surprise that when it comes to ratings gold for his new talk show, Anderson's going all out—and this time it's with his mom, Gloria Vanderbilt. He's sitting down for a one-hour chat with the famed jean designer to talk about his brother's suicide and her many husbands and hookups, among other things.
What shockers is she telling her son?
