I was already a fan of that glorious silver fox Anderson Cooper, but if I’d been in the audience when this happened, I probably would’ve thrown my bra on the stage.
Anderson had Sarah Burge on the show, the British woman who holds the Guinness World Record for most plastic surgeries and calls herself the ‘Human Barbie’. He was interviewing her on a variety of topics, and was supportive of her philanthropic work for her charity Don’t Mess With Me, which provides support for victims of domestic violence, but when the conversation turned to her children, Anderson had had enough.
Ms. Burge has two daughters, ages 17 and 8, and has pretty…unique ideas about raising them. She’s taken a lot of heat recently for giving her younger daughter pole-dancing lessons and vouchers for breast implants and liposuction when she was seven years old, to be redeemed upon her eighteenth birthday. She also allowed her older (but still teenage) daughter to get Botox in her forehead, defending herself by saying it was something she had requested to stop excessive sweating, and says she went along with it to prevent her daughter from finding a “voodoo witch doctor” or administering it herself.
It’s at this point that Anderson stops the interview, saying
“Um, I honestly have nothing more to talk to you about. I gotta be honest. I gotta just stop, I’m sorry. I try to be really polite to all my guests, I just think you’re dreadful and I honestly don’t want to talk to you anymore, so I’m just gonna stop. I’m sorry.”
Yes, Anderson, yes! We loves the precious. We loves when the precious kicks the bad lady off his show. And even in anger and disgust, his language is so cute and quaint, just like the adorable little Vanderbilt-spawn that he is. The word ‘dreadful’ is perfect for this case, and so underused.
Anderson remarked later that in retrospect, he regretted having Ms. Burge on the show, but also apologized for the interview ending the way it did. He wanted it to be ‘an honest discussion’ and didn’t feel that it was, so he ended it.
I love this guy. I wanna get gay married to him.
