Anderson Cooper "Flip-Flops are DISGUSTING!"

Today on Anderson Live guest co-host Maria Sansone gushed about wearing flip-flops 24/7

Anderson replied flip-flops are gross and disgusting (his words)

He said the worst are in airplanes where men's hairy feet are going barefoot on the plane.

@ link below Maria made a video saying “I’m still going to wear my flip-flops. Deal with it!”

Do you feel the same way as AC?

Agree with Anderson - the feet that look good enough to be exposed to the world in flip flops are few and very far between.

by Anonymousreply 301/25/2013

Flip-flops always look vaguely disgusting to me. Even though some men have very sexy feet. I find flip-flops slightly feminine, therefore non-sexy

Dudes should not wear flip flops beyond the beach and pool. It is so unmanly and nasty.

by Anonymousreply 601/25/2013

I oppose flip-flops because they're *dangerous*. Anything could happen to your feet or your toes when they're exposed like that out on the streets.

by Anonymousreply 901/25/2013

I don't like them, but they're not as bad as "sandals" - you know those ugly black or brown leather things with all the straps... now those are disgusting.

R5 the topic is about flip-flops not about AC

by Anonymousreply 1101/25/2013

I've seen these "non-AC" poll threads before here and they are always about AC because someone is obsessed with AC and think they need to start threads about him and pretend that they're talking about something else. All OP needed to do was ask if DLers think flip-flops are disgusting without bringing AC into it.

by Anonymousreply 1201/25/2013

He's such a prissy little thing.

He doesn't like men's hairy feet? Does his hairy boyfriend always wear socks in bed?

by Anonymousreply 1501/25/2013

Last December AC tweeted this

@andersoncooper: Taking red eye back to ny. The guy across from me is barefoot. I find that obnoxious. Is that odd? #putsomesockson

He also uploaded the pic of the guy's bare foot along with the tweet.

Marie Sansone is one hot hetty gal BUT she's half right. Women can pull off flip flops but that looks gauche and unkempt in a man. For once Anderson has exercised some good taste. Who knew he had any at all?!!

[quotes] Who knew he had any at all?!!

Lots of us have know THAT for years.

I don't blame AC for not wanting someone's nasty feet all up in his face.

by Anonymousreply 2101/25/2013

I agree with Anderson. Why the hell would anyone want to wear stupid flip-flops on a city street? Even if you've got gorgeous feet, they'll end up all cruddy looking and filthy dirty....yuck!!!!!!

Flip-flops were designed for beaches, bitches! Last time I checked, 6th Avenue has nary a grain of sand in sight. Get a clue already!

Is R29 the OP getting her AC bashing jollies again?

Anderson Cooper has the AIDS you know.

I think flip flops are instruments of torture. Fuck that rubber band between your big toe and the other toe hurts.

I would have thought that AC was a flip-flopping kinda guy. Wait, he's talking about shoes? Oh, nevermind.

Anderson has always thought that girl parts are prettier than guy parts - he's just more open about it now.

Flip flops are okay with shorts, but they look disgusting with long pants.

by Anonymousreply 4701/25/2013

I don't like them. They are more tolerable on men than women but I would never wear them.

by Anonymousreply 5101/25/2013

He said the other day that he's now washing his jeans, so that little controversy is done R54. But he wasn't the only one who thought it was ok to not wash those expensive type jeans. The manufacturer seemed to have recommended it.

Fangurl alert at r56!!!!

by Anonymousreply 5701/25/2013

Are we all supposed to dislike Anderson like you do R57? Someone likes to talk about how we're all entitled to our opinions, have you forgotten that?

by Anonymousreply 5801/25/2013

ITA @ R14.

And yes, it is clear that Fiona Fangurl R56/R49 has lost her way.

Here, let me help you get back home, dear.

Anderson and Ben are a happy, well matched couple. No problem there. Are YOU happy R62/63/64/65?

by Anonymousreply 6601/26/2013

He wears a 3-piece suit at the beach.

by Anonymousreply 7105/15/2014

I guess if you are walking around the city, exposed to so much general nastiness, they would seem unhygienic but I think what most people are objecting to are the near bare feet.

by Anonymousreply 7605/15/2014

I live at the beach. Day-trippers who come here in flip-flops and then wear them around town get a pass.

I wear them at home. on the deck, on the sand. I don't wear them on the street in a store or to a restaurant. I wouldn't wear them to travel. How difficult is it to slip on a pair of boat shoes, tennis shoes or loafers when you are leaving the house?

by Anonymousreply 7905/15/2014

I think AC might be germaphobic.

by Anonymousreply 8105/15/2014

[quote]I think AC might be germaphobic.

Unfortunately, he apparently is not germaphobic enough to clean his cell phone. A few years ago, he had a scientist on his show who tested his phone for bacteria. The scientist found traces of fecal matter on the phone. I find his apparent bathroom/cell phone habits to be much more disgusting than most any open toed shoe.

by Anonymousreply 8205/15/2014

There is fecal matter on your phone too, R82, and mine.

by Anonymousreply 8605/15/2014

Thanks, Sander. Sorry. You were one of the people I really admired on NBC when I was a kid.

Also Nancy Dickerson.

Did not like Babs even then, seemed overblown and arrogant.

by Anonymousreply 8705/15/2014

Get real. Anderson has never tried flop flops with me.

by Anonymousreply 8905/15/2014

Bad enough one has to deal with ill mannered idiots on a plane..flip flops, shorts, hauling the kitchen sink as carry on luggage.

by Anonymousreply 9005/15/2014

I doubt Anderson Cooper saw anyone wearing flip flops in the First-Class section.

by Anonymousreply 9105/15/2014

The more AC talks the less I like him.

by Anonymousreply 9305/15/2014

I hate flip flops. Bad for your feet and it looks trashy.

by Anonymousreply 9405/15/2014


BS, ask any podiatrist. Worst thing you can do for your feet, posture, back.

by Anonymousreply 9805/15/2014

On the majority of Americans, I find flip flops disgusting. I also find sweat pants and pajama pants, especially when worn without underwear, disgusting on the majority of people. Tank shirts also look disgusting on most.

I feel the opposite.

He likes sneakers though.

Exactly, r105, disgusting.

Of course they are gross, feet people are fucked up.

Jack Gray, Anderson's producer, hasn't tweeted since January with the exception of a retweet in February. His tweet profile says he's still an AC360 producer.

Does anyone know what's up with him? is he still there / all right?

by Anonymousreply 11105/18/2014

He's right on this.

by Anonymousreply 11305/18/2014

ANY shoe that makes a sound is DISGUSTING. Flip-Flop, Flip-Flop, Flip-Flop, Flip-Flop is not a sound I really want to hear constantly.

r115 I feel the same way about the Dr. Scholl's wooden-soled sandals. Sounds like a goddamn mule train.

Feet are gross and disgusting because they're hairy?

He sounds like a six-year-old girl who listens too much to her mommy.

by Anonymousreply 11905/19/2014

He seems quite happy to me R112, he's just quirky and always has been apparently. When he was 11 he called Truman Capote a 'weirdo' and then said that he liked weirdos.

by Anonymousreply 12005/19/2014

That's because AC has ugly feet

by Anonymousreply 12105/23/2014

My thoughts, too, R121.

by Anonymousreply 12205/23/2014

His feet are fine. No worse or better than any other feet.

What kind of puddle-jumper airlines does Anderson fly where men are going barefoot?

I guess Ben isn't allowed to own flip-flops.

Holy shit, the guy in the pic at r114 is hot as fuck. Those are the types of dudes I WANT to see wearing flip flops.

The streets of NYC (or any city without an alley system) are one place I refuse to wear them. Too much trash & garbage juice on the sidewalks. Anyplace else, go for it. Super comfy. I do wear them with jeans on occasion. Choose good brands with arch support (like Reefs). The cheap ones from the corner drug store or big box stores are not good for your feet.
