Does anyone else loathe Anderson Cooper?

Don't get me wrong. I once said here that Anderson Cooper was like a luxury liner at the dawn of the jet age. He was so refined and above-it-all.

Was Anderson always this much of a charmless fake and phony? He is obviously aging rapidly and his career prospects are diminishing, however I find this kind of coordinated publicity desperate and so cringeworthy. You just know he called that creepy "Jess" Cagle to make it happen.

AC360 seemed essential at the beginning of the Trump years, but once he rolled his eyes at Kellyanne Conway- so frigging unprofessional - he began his downward slide. I haven't seen an episode in over a year and I even missed his birthday show.

So does anyone else feel as I do or are you still a steady viewer of his show?

And that’s exactly one of the reasons I can’t stand him or any of these other TV news “personalities” these days - they are so desperate for attention and want to be celebrities themselves instead of just reporting the fucking news.

On the NYE CNN broadcasts with Andy Cohen, and previously Kathy Griffin, it's shocking how little Anderson purports to know about popular culture. He also either feigns ignorance of, or truly doesn't get, the sexual innuendo jokes that Andy does. Anderson seems uptight and hyper-focussed on his news world. Maybe that's why Andy makes him drink during the program; otherwise, it may never be on the air again.

He really was sleazy and cowardly with Griffin. He went on TV and denounced how awful what she did was. (Did he comment about Madonna saying she wanted to blow up the white house or Johnny Depp wanting to kill the president? no.)

Granted CNN probably made him come out with a statement but he could have at least called Griffin and said I'm sorry they are requiring me to do this. Instead Griffin says like a week later she got a text saying I guess we aren't friends anymore.

His friendship with Cohen is odd too. He has a certain disdain (understandable) for Cohen.

He once was on the show describing Cohen's parties. He said how Andy likes to invite people who have some sort of a feud or hurt feelings and suddenly put them together to watch the fireworks. It is like his private life is also a reality real housewives show.

He’s honestly not a relatable person, comes from extreme wealth AND now makes obscene money on top of it, so he’s like the wealthy, annoying gay guy everybody hates whenever he starts complaining about something. He also seems very clinical and asexual so I can’t imagine having sex with him. Also, though I appreciate all the reporting on Trump that he did, it left him looking very one sided when he left office and puts him in an adverse light now.

I’m sure he’s a nice guy but he also seems overexposed, and he could’ve handled Kathy differently, we ALL have that one screwball of a friend we’re always bailing out and he definitely FAILED with her.

The Andy Cohen stuff really ruins him but I will say his broadcast after his mother died was really heart breaking. The way he described his grief and talked about being truly alone in the world once she was gone on was very sad. I wasn’t surprised when he had that baby after seeing that. Seemed like a loneliness baby.

But I don’t understand the ex co-parenting at all. I wonder if he’s okay with the baby growing up with cohen’s brat as a sibling essentially.

R58, how can Anderson approach “fair and principled” reporting about the common man -

when he’s obscenely wealthy making 12 million a year? How can he approach pretty much any current story without sounding tinny, fake or ironic? He can’t. Trump’s influence enriched him the past four years.

Literally every single hot button issue- is caused by rampant wealth inequity, the wealthy pushing their influence within politics, and the deliberate obscurification of this fact within media any time it’s raised.

R62 again, “hate” is a bit much. I’d have a difficult time watching people like Oprah or Anderson cover stories about how bad public housing was, or how tough living on minimum wage is. I also know Anderson is involved in plenty of charities, he didn’t choose his family or to be born into wealth, and he honestly is part of a larger media system of “give em what sells”. It also must be very difficult having the spotlight on you all the time or second guessing your public stance or trusting anyone that closely.

If I were him now that I’ve garnered so much influence- I would approach the networks with a fun game show that gave LOTS of money away to nonprofits and groups, something soft hearted and feel good that involved children, animals and old people with hysterical setups of other celebs, surprise cameos from old Hollywood and yes, even some comedy and slapstick…

I think Anderson’s secretly a jaded DL diva just like us!

This guy tried having sex with me when I was 16 and we met. Nothing happened since I wasn’t into him despite being totally open to a daddy (hence how I was invited to an adult gay party). But he specifically chose me out of a crowd (we were at a party) and I was told he was rich before I even met him (his job never came up at time so I didn’t know he was on TV). Afterwards, some queens gossiped that of course he chose me since I was just his type (barely legal Latino top).

Anderson did do a good job hosting Jeopardy and he certainly had his PR people and friends (Andy Cohen, Kelly Ripa) push his appearance. However, the NY Times, I believe, said his show had the lowest ratings for a host up until that time.

The relationship with Ben is what's surprising- I thought I heard AC call Ben his partner after the baby ? Now he is his ex-partner? Anderson's even kinkier than I thought.

I do think Anderson was "protected" in a way here in NYC, because so many people wanted him as a friend/connection.....but times are changing mighty fast. If Lin-Manuel can fall from the heavens literally overnight, Anderson's time may be soon. Once Jeff Zucker finally gets the hell out of there, I think they'll be some seismic shifts at CNN. If management know sordid stuff, the leaks will be fast and furious once they want him to go.

As a lifelong eye-roller who rolled his eyes at age 12 at my advanced Algebra teacher who complained that if my scores dropped any lower I might get a B+ in his class, I'm all for more honesty in interactions with others, especially with people in positions of power and authority, who need to be treated more as peers and less like aristocrats.

I have never understood the fascination with AC.

People say "he's hot." I don't see it.

People say "he's such a good journalist (one of the highest paid)." I don't see it.

I don't care enough about him to loathe him. I only notice him when someone outrageous stands next to him. He's one of the most bland journalists on tv.

R130 - “People say he’s hot.”

Rolling his eyes at Kellyanne Conway is hardly the thing I would identify as a deal breaker, OP. He maintained composure with the dangerous frauds of the Trump administration as long as almost anyone.

But yes, I do loathe him for straddling the line of celebrity and journalist, and not by accident.

Years ago, while still closeted, he was given a network daytime talk show, and the show was me-me-me. It was called Anderson and it could have been called All About Anderson, except that it didn't address the elephant in the room of his sexuality. He interviewed his friends, his mother, his fans. He talked in disturbing detail about the moments involved in his brother's bizarre suicide, he probed celebrity guests including his octogenarian mother about their sex lives but never commented on his own romantic life, and he somehow thought that showing off how boring he is would be compelling to viewers: he owns dozens of the same black shirt and wears the same shirt and jeans every day; he doesn't enjoy food and so eats the same foods every day. Who care? (No one. The show was canceled.)

After he came out, he played up the gayness quotient for attention. He hitched himself to Kathy Griffin and created that weird New Year's Eve show for CNN. I have no problem with it except that the show was all about his nervous giggling while Kathy Griffin joked and Don Lemon got drunk. Funny-ish and fun, but why does CNN, a news network, air it?

Then he latched onto Andy Cohen, who at this point is pretty universally reviled and known to be nasty and drug addicted behind the scenes. And since he spent years making his personal life a soap opera for all to scrutinize, his befriending of and then abandonment of Kathy Griffin, including condemning her own air after going silent on her because she made a controversial political joke, I think it's fair to judge him for being a bad friend who chose Andy Cohen over everyone else.

He's revealed he is a starfucker, engaging in public adoration with the likes of Kelly Ripa and her husband, et al.—the Andy Cohen entourage—and he posts Narcissus-like photos of himself lying back with his biceps in the frame over and over and over so famous and nonfamous friends can tell him how dreamy he is on Instagram.

Finally, there's his reporting on 60 Minutes. Nearly everyone's stories are serious and investigative on that show. Cooper's recent segments have included profiling the luxurious world of Monaco's royal family, another profiling the GoPro camera. There's nothing inherently wrong with his reporting, but it is damned superficial and inconsequential compared with everything else on 60 Minutes.

He does strike me as an heir on par with Meghan McCain, JFK, Jr. and others who have been handed multimedia platforms and paid heaps of money to just do and say whatever they want when what they want to say is nothing anyone else would ever be hired to put out into the world.

There is a bizarre Suddenly, Last Summer vibe about his relationship with Cohen. Cohen posts photos like this and they both pretend Cooper hates it, and then Cooper posts those pictures of himself shirtless and gazing into his own eyes over and over.

It really says something about Anderson Cooper's charactet that Andy Cohen is his best friend and among Cohen's other close confidants are John Mayer—whose personality is pretty universally loathed—and Sean Avery, who seems to be hated by everyone who has ever has to work with him. Both of them seem to use and dispose of women in a way that goes beyond the norm for a womanizing celebrity; the people they used to go out with seem to absolutely revile them and have no problem telling everyone about their feelings.

I have pretty negative feelings about everyone who pals around with Cohen.

Kathy Griffin seems like she has emotional and behavioral disturbances, but I absolutely believe her claims about Andy Cohen and I suspect he's worse to people than she has said.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend." It is in Andy's best interest to keep them enemies so he can maintain his relationship with Anderson... which is a huge step up for this low-level drama queen. It gives Andy prestige and entree' into rooms that would bar his crazy shit-stirring ass at the door.

by Anonymousreply 20406/24/2021

R204 Besides all those noxious general personality traits of Andy's, there's no way to mend because of the hatred between him and Katht Griffin.

Kathy unleashed secrets about Andy that he certainly would never forgive. And she did it, she says, because he always treated her poorly just as he treats most people. So she was driven over the edge emotionally by the government persecution and just unhinged her vault of celeb secrets and showed she reviles and does not respect Andy, and Andy is a far nastier person than that but he keeps his vendettas quiet.

He's basically one of the Bravo housewives—shallow, desperate for fame and money, a starfucker/ladder climber, and retaliatory. While he normally puts on his fake smile and pretends to rise above drama involving himself, he has shown his grotesque side in fleeting glimpses on his show. He snapped at a woman from Below Deck one night, cutting her off mid-sentence (on air!) to interrogate her about her appearance ("What did you do to your face?! Oh, Sweetie, no! Fillers are AGING!"), he has had guests on his shown who he's nice to on air and then attacks afterward. It's really bizarre behavior. He's a talk show host but his interactions with guests seem like those of middle school girls who were at the same sleepover party and then try to ruin one another's reputations at school with what they learned during late-night conversations.

I think Kathy Griffin is insecure to her core and always will be, but Andy is a vicious narcissist and his alleged drug problem has caused him to let his guard down publicly and show us who he is behind the dumb fake smirk.

by Anonymousreply 20506/24/2021

Yes R205! Absolutely correct! I believe this is all on Andy's messy ass. Even after everything that went down, I believe Kathy would make up with Andy and Anderson if given the chance. She's a professional, plus I think she is a decent person who can separate the entertainment "business" from personal relationships.

Kathy loves "the gays" and backs that up by supporting gay charities. For her to come that hard for Andy, let's you know he is a real piece of shit! Kathy is a talented comedian. Anderson is a talented Journalist. Andy has no discernible talent. All he's known for is starting shit. Kathy is just a casualty for him. He is riding the "Housewives" wave as hard and long as he can. Once that franchise goes out of fashion, Andy is gonna fall back into obscurity. I hope when that happens they all shit on him.

R233. I am not on tv, where am I claiming I look great? I look my age, that's it. No more, no less.

So unless a person is better looking they cannot criticize or judge? Even for you r233, that is one disturbing mindset.

by Anonymousreply 23506/26/2021

R235 Okay, I think I understand now where you're coming from. You're ruthlessly bitchy and judgmental about other people's looks, and you find "disturbing" when someone points that out.

by Anonymousreply 23606/26/2021

R236 He also seems to believe that because they are on television, people have an obligation not to age.

It scrambles my brain to know people think this way, but it's hardly unique. That's the view that pushed almost all women over 35 offscreen (except to play small grandmotherly roles) up until about 10 years ago. People seem to be personally offended by seeing age on television and movie screens, and they actually hold it against the people onscreen that they don't arrest the aging process at 35. It's really no wonder why so many celebrities become physically and mentally deranged trying to defy aging.

"I'm not on TV, so I don't have the responsibility of remaining 35 forever!" ⬅️ Utter insanity.

His career is a hobby. He could walk away and still have more money than any else at any of those "news" networks. He seems indifferent at times. And also is terrible at anything not on the teleprompter. I like his girlish giggle though.

No. he's just very light-skinned.

He's of of English-Irish-Dutch ancestry, so he's very pale and he sunburns easily.

But he had brown hair until his 20s (he went prematurely grey before he went all white--there used to even be a fanzine about him called "Gunmetal Grey" in the late 1990s, in reference to his hair color), and he has blue eyes, not pink ones.

Yes, I loathe heiress Anderson.

It's bad enough that D.C. and Hollywood are basically a playground for the children of the wealthy. It would be nice if journalism at least was reserved for talent, critical thought, and determination.

Anyone who thinks that a Vanderbilt is going to take a brutally honest, critically incisive approach to reporting on a world characterized by grotesque socioeconomic stratification is kidding themselves.

I like his personality better than most talking heads (Cuomo, Lemon, O'Donnell, Williams...)

I think losing his father as a kid - and then his brother in his early 20s (in such a grisly way), really hit him hard. He has said he wanted to report in war zones because he didn't care if he lived or not so why not? He's a sort of haunted soul - and for some reason that gives him a depth the other pretty boys don't have - jmho.

He's also very smart - another thing that not all the news show hosts could claim (though Maddow and Hayes can - and probably some others, but many are a bit dim)

He's not a bad anchor but I didn't like how he turned his back on Kathy Griffin. Obviously, he doesn't know how to be a friend.

by Anonymousreply 266Last Wednesday at 2:49 AM

Loathe seems like a strong word, but as others have noted, he's less "journalist" and more celebrity, but he doesn't seem to care about that. Likewise, his friendship with the loathsome Cohen seems suspect, but he also seems like a really sad & lonely guy. His brother's suicide still seems to weigh very heavy on him & possibly he has mental health/depression issues of his own.

by Anonymousreply 267Last Wednesday at 2:56 AM

In the early 2000s, before I knew he was gay, I was a huge fan. He used to fill in for Aaron Brown and one time I sent him an email telling him how much I enjoyed when he guest hosted. He sent a response back that was both gracious and funny, which further increased my opinion of him.

However, I don’t care for the current version of him AT ALL. He’s morphed into a silly, self-righteous Karen who hangs out with a bunch of bottom feeders like Kelly Ripa and Andy Cohen. Throwing Kathy Griffin under the bus was a pretty shitty move as well.

by Anonymousreply 268Last Wednesday at 3:04 AM

I just get the impression he's kind of dumb. That's what I don't like about him. A stuttering, unnatural, facial tic sort. He needed the myth (and network) of the family name and the NY circles... otherwise who'd have heard of him? He's not that special. Cool hair, though.

He lost me there too. He has no clue what friendship is about. I know what she did was stupid but friends back each other up, instead he acted like I don't know her. Yeah, I know he's famous, career, bla, bla, bla. Fuck that. Liz Taylor never backed away from Micheal Jackson no matter how much stuff came out about him. She was a true friend. Anderson is a bar friend, as long as it works for him at the moment but dont expect me to risk anything just for your friendship.

Why all the Anderson Cooper hate threads? Did he turn you bitches down and you can't get over it? Very few journalists really stand out. He's not one of them but I don't hate him for that. Did the $200M trust fund baby get that job at CNN through connections? Probably, but I don't hate him for that either. That's the American way.

Anyone who rolls his eyes at Kelly Anne Conway (who lies as she breathes) should not be disdained. Unprofessional would've been to call her a heartless lying bitch. And had he done that he would've deserved a medal.

Anderson is sort of a middle of the road journalist. He's kinda "MEH." There's not enough of a personality there to loathe. I really don't think about him at all. I don't get this.

I am not caping for him. In fact, I think he is grossly overrated (in every way) but I don't hate him.

To say you "loathe" someone is pretty strong. One could easily tie that word to someone like Adolf Hitler, Mitch McConnell, Derrick Chauvin, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer or Donald Trump and others who've actually done horrible things which evoke strong emotions from people.

But to loathe some mediocre milquetoast reporter? C'mon dude. All I can say is "get a life." Go find a hobby.

I do not hate AC, I just no longer respect him. Throwing his friend under the bus- especially the brutal, public manner in which he did that- destroyed any possibility of integrity, loyalty, and even kindness. He did not have to that to KG publicly and so insultingly harsh. Whatever one may think of Kathy, AC chose her as his friend and hung out with her and even her mother. That was painful to watch and I have never had an ounce of respect or interest again. His friendship with a D-list coke whore just confirmed my opinion of him.

Think the baby thing is strange,

by Anonymousreply 28820 hours ago

I don't think it's strange; he had a weird, complicated relationship with his mother, who likely sucked up every ounce of extra energy he had. Once she died, while she was the last member of his family, it also freed him up to make his own family. Had she not been so - not difficult, but needy, maybe - he likely would've done it a lot earlier. But rich white guys have the luxury of having kids later in life & paying someone to raise them.

I found this video in r47, in which Anderson talks about eating the same thing every day for a year—in his case, Boston Chicken for lunch. I'm very much like this, though I have a wide range of foods I'll eat. During the pandemic, I ate two scrambled eggs and bacon nearly every day for, well, a year. I'm sick of it now, though I haven't found a total every day replacement.

I've been eating refrigerated fresh ravioli with olive oil and Parmigiano-Reggiano a lot, plus cherries with pistachios and fresh mozzarella a lot, but I haven't eaten them exclusively at any one meal the way I was doing with the bacon and eggs. There's nearly always something, though, that I eat every day.

Also during the pandemic, I would eat deli ham and cheese with Maille's Honey mustard, in roll-up format, i.e., no bread. I bought some of that yesterday, and now realize I am no longer interested in eating it. Too bad, because it's simple and, compared to things like chips or ice cream, a healthy choice.

Yes, but those family ties seem pretty tenuous; at best, they seemed to have a pretty indifferent attitude towards Gloria, though that's understandable. My point was simply that Gloria probably took up a lot of his energy & if you've ever had sick/disabled parent, you know what that's like. Now he's free to live his own life.
