Bitchy Anderson Cooper is the Best Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper is not a guy I watch very often, if only because I don't do day-time talk shows and I don't watch cable news anymore. It's too toxic, although if I were to make an exception, it'd be for Cooper, who at least pretends to be above the fray while he's wallowing in the sensational muck. But I absolutely adore the man himself, and I wish that he were involved in something I cared to watch because, periodically, he'll unleash a screed that fills me with infinite joy.

Such is the case here, where in a conversation on his talk show with that annoying Bravo guy -- who is not Michael Ausiello, but who I like to think Michael Aussiello looks like, even though I actually know what Michael Ausiello looks like -- Anderson Cooper talks about coming out, and what a casually neat experience that was, though he kind recognizes that everyone pretty much already knew.

Anyway, the one unfortunate incident to come out of the revelation was the decision by Star Jones to go on the "Today" show to suggest that Cooper only came out of the closet as a cynical ratings ploy. The way that Cooper bitchily refutes Star Jones' suggestion is just too fun not to share.

Awww, it's in moments like these that I miss my old friend, Jeremy C. Fox (who started Pajiba with me eight years ago), who has a remarkably similar demeanor to Cooper and, likewise, the ability to casually shred someone apart so thoroughly that you don't even realize it until you've left the room in tears.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • mc-rox

    This clip and Anderson on Jimmy Fallon are both hysterical. Anderson is such a funny guy.

    Also yay on Pajiba being around for 8 years. This is an awesome site which has given me an appreciation for pop-up-ads and tasty visceral comments like "enjoyable as pooping out your pee-hole". Thanks Dustin.

  • nosio

    Oh shit. It's been 8 years? I found Pajiba in high school and I think it's safe to say that you heathens basically raised me.

  • BierceAmbrose

    And we are very proud of you. "Acquitted" counts as a win.

  • chanohack

    You don't watch daytime TV? How do you know all the Ellen things without watching her? Is there an "Ellen did something newsworthy" blog I don't know about?

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I think that's Tumblr's entire purpose.

    Behind Loki gifs and things with cats.

  • Hawkeye Fierce

    It's funny because it's true.

  • ,

    Is the other guy always that annoying?

    STFU and let Cooper talk.

  • e jerry powell

    Yes, as a matter of fact, he is.

  • ,

    You sure it hasn't been 11?

    Sometimes it seems like 11 ...

    So where WAS I going those three years then? Has IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay been around that long?

  • BWeaves

    A blog called "Query Letters I Love?"

    Well, that's where I was until ManagerGuy died. Pajiba used to place ads on it and that's how I got here.

  • Sars

    "And my mom was like WHO is Star Jones?" Oh Andy, you WOULD bring Gloria Vanderbilt in to it.

  • e jerry powell

    Who else could?

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I also think that Anderson should have done a "The Decision" a la that basketball guy who plays basketball but with flouncing. Lots of flouncing.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    It is absolutely mind boggling to me to think that we've tolerated you for eight years. It's like you roofied all of us and we've never quite recovered.

  • Kala

    While I think Star Jones is a too D-List for Cooper to bother with, watching him get his bitch on is kind of fabulous. The only way this could get any more fantastic is if Anderson had a few martinis in him.

  • e jerry powell

    But I bet he turns into his mother at that point, like most people.

  • annie

    I really don't see how that's a bad thing. That sounds AWESOME.

  • Kala

    I concur. That sounds too amazing for words.

  • BWeaves

    Wow! 8 years? You've kept me sane at work for 8 years?

  • Snath

    Two of my favorite things started eight years ago, The Current (best radio station in the world), and Pajiba. Hurray!

  • TheAggroCraig

    Hey your station just got all intimate with mine with some dirty music-swapping. I think this makes us step-brothers.

  • Snath

    Are you in Milwaukee? That was the most recent swappage.

  • TheAggroCraig

    Yes, sir. I don't think I've listened to more than 20 minutes of commercial radio in the 3 years or so since I came across RadioMilwaukee. And "most recent"? So that's a regular thing? That music swap is a great idea, I really enjoyed it.

  • Snath

    They've done it a few times; I think this last time was the third? It's a pretty cool way to hear other local music.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I realise this is commenting on a tangent, but - 8 years?! Jesus. Time...fucking gallops along like a motherfucker.
