Anderson Cooper calls out Star Jones

With guest co-host Andy Cohen, Anderson talks about how life has been since “coming out.”

Anderson reveals that the only thing that “annoyed” him – actually his mother, who told him – was Star Jones (remember her?) alleging that Anderson’s coming out was a big promo ploy for his TV show.

Anderson had this to say:

If I was wanting to boost ratings, I would have waited to announce it on ‘A Very Special Episode’ that would have been promo’d for weeks and weeks and there would have been commercials … ‘Anderson’s Huge Announcement.'”

As memory serves, in terms of boosting ratings, I seem to recall [Star] hocking her wedding every single day to get free products when she was on ‘The View’ and I seem to recall her lying about her gastric bypass surgery and making everybody else lie about it as well. So for her to suddenly emerge out of the shadows and suddenly attack me for this, I couldn’t believe it.
