This is why Anderson Cooper is so great: Not only does he tell a woman who encouraged her 15-year-old daughter to get a boob job that she’s a “dreadful” person before dismissing her from his show, he can also throw down with obnoxious airline passengers.
Last night on Kathy Griffin’s show on Bravo, he related an account of a recent run-in he ad on an airplane. Apparently, Cooper — who was sitting next to Olympic figure skater, Johnny Weir — was trying to sleep when the man in front of him turned around and held up his iPhone to take a picture.
“So, normally,” Anderson Cooper says. “I would be like, well, I’m not going to win this one. But lately I’ve become emboldened, and I grabbed the guy on the shoulder. And I said something to the effect of, ‘Bitch, what the fuck are you doing?’”
Of course, being the classy guy he is, he immediately regretted it. But we know what’s in the heart of Anderson Cooper, and it’s what we love about him.
Unfortunately, the video is not embeddable (damn you, Bravo!), but it’s worth the watch.
