Anderson Cooper just can’t contain his laughter! The ”Anderson Cooper 360″ host’s giggles got the best of him (again!) last night on his show — where it got so bad, he actually had to walk off-camera.
The chuckles started during a segment about Dyngus Day, the Polish holiday marking the end of Lent. Watch the video!
I’m sorry, I’m sorry for doing this to you. Because once you see something like this, you can’t unsee it. A grown ass woman wearing a child’s pageant costume is a terrible, terrible thing and I’m really, really sorry. But at the same time, I felt duty-bound to let you know that “Coupon Queen” June and daughter Alana will be appearing on “Anderson” in matching outfits. That is all.

In case you were curious about how polyamorous relationships work in practice, especially when a child is involved, Anderson Cooper got up close and personal with a triad on his show. Okay, follow me here: Jaiya Ma and Jon Hanauer have been together since they met at Tantric Yoga teacher training 10 years ago. At some point, Jaiya brought another man into the relationship, but things ended with a bad breakup. Jaiya’s tendency was to “connect” post-breakup, while Jon’s was to “retreat.” So, instead of breaking up, Jon encouraged Jaiya to find someone else. Eventually, she met Ian Ferguson in dance class and they had an instant connection. Jaiya became pregnant with Ian’s baby. Now the three of them live together with two-year-old Eamon. Interestingly, Jon (not the biological father of Eamon) does a good portion of the child care. You can watch an additional clip of Anderson’s interview with them here. Do I smell a sitcom here?

Sigh. In recent days, some of you have expressed a lack of understanding, an annoyance even, with my obsession with Courtney Stodden, super sexy sensual teen bride. While I think there are many legitimate reasons to watch Court’s every move — her Twitter account alone is filled with important grammar lessons! — I believe this Anderson Cooper segment alone is all the proof I need that Courtney Stodden is a hot topic worthy of coverage on The Frisky.

Anderson Cooper is trying to be the next Oprah, or at least the new Ellen, with his talk show. For the first episode on Monday, he sat down for a tearful talk with Amy Winehouse’s family. But for the second, he went to get a spray tan with Snooki of “Jersey Shore.” “Oh my god, you’re pale,” says Snooki, upon seeing Anderson for the first time. “That’s scary. Don’t worry, this isn’t gonna hurt.”
“It might hurt my dignity,” responds Anderson. Keep reading »
Rachel Maddow is awesome. One of the many reasons I think this is because she is openly gay and often gives shout-outs to her partner, Susan Mikula. In an interview with The Guardian that ran yesterday, Rachel talked a little bit about being one of the few out gay news anchors. She said, “I’m sure other people in the business have considered reasons why they’re doing what they’re doing, but I do think that if you’re gay you have a responsibility to come out.” Which has many folks thinking that she was pointing fingers at the anchor whose sexuality is often the subject of speculation—Anderson Cooper.
Last night, Rachel took to her blog to clear things up. Keep reading »
Color me shocked that Anderson Cooper didn’t pop out of the womb with a head of grayish white hair. Check out this recently unearthed photo of the CNN anchor from the ’90s, looking like an extra on the set of “Saved By The Bell.” Nice white jeans, Coop. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
“We actually ended up that day in a pub in London drinking Jameson, which I don’t really drink. So, she got me to drink, like, two of them. And by the end, I was ready to have the interview be over, because I really sort of couldn’t ask anymore questions.”
—Anderson Cooper talks about interviewing Lady Gaga for an upcoming episode of “60 Minutes.” Maybe these two will become drinking buddies? [PopEater] Keep reading »
