How delightfully Victorian!

Anderson Cooper, in addition to becoming a John Slattery-like sex symbol among middle-aged women and probably more than a few bashful men, is quickly becoming one of the most entertaining talk show hosts around.

Not entertaining in a Geraldo Rivera-jackass type way, but in that he manages to balance his decorum with an ability to get completely awed by the weirdness of what he has to report.

This time it’s “Barbie Mom,” aka Sarah Burge, a woman who has gone to lengths to make herself look like Barbie. Which is stupid and fine, I guess, but Cooper draws the line when she talks about sticking Botox in her 15 year-old daughter to get her to stop sweating during pageants, kicking her off in what would be a vulgar display of power by AC standards.

Take a look.

Anderson Cooper Bans Kardashians From His New Talk Show http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/anderson-cooper-bans-kardashians-from-his-new-talk-show/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/anderson-cooper-bans-kardashians-from-his-new-talk-show/#comments Fri, 13 Jan 2012 21:59:50 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=242368 He should ban the real villain here, himself. Read on to figure out what the hell I'm talking about.

While promoting his new talk show, the effervescently-titled Anderson! (exclamation point mine) on Bravo‘s Watch What Happens Live, the silver-haired dreamboat said that if he could ban any guest from his new show, he would choose the entire Kardashian clan. This just moments after possible-bastard Khloe tweeted how much she loved Cooper. Rough week for Khloe.

While I appreciate Anderson Cooper’s strong anti-Kardashian stance, I take issue with his edict for two reasons. One: The Bravo host specifically asked for only ONE person who would be banned from Anderson! (again, exclamation point mine), but Cooper bent the rules to accomodate his personal politics. You know who else bent rules to accomodate at the convenience of his own beliefs? If you do, please leave his name in the comments for a special Screen Junkies prize.

Reason two: Anderson Cooper is so quick to judge the Kardashian clan over their fame-whoring, which I completely agree with, but refuses to turn the microscope on himself to examine the wrongs he’s perpetrating across the country and possibly the world. Namely, he’s making honest, Christian straight men go gay with his good looks, nonchalant charm, and terrific wardrobe. Specifically, he’s making me question my sexuality, and I’m sure I’m not alone here. (If you count among the straight men going gay for Anderson Cooper, again, put your name in the comments to be eligible for a special Screen Junkies prize.)

I don’t want to harp on his any longer than I already have, but Cooper should ban HIMSELF from his new show, Anderson, (my exclamation point omitted because I’m incredibly angry with him right now).

In Honor Of Anderson Cooper: 9 Videos Of Reporters Losing Their Sh*t http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/in-honor-of-anderson-cooper-9-videos-of-reporters-losing-their-sht/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/in-honor-of-anderson-cooper-9-videos-of-reporters-losing-their-sht/#comments Thu, 18 Aug 2011 21:39:54 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=224982 Laugh it up, fuzz ball...

As Anderson Cooper losing of his shit last night demonstrated, news reporters aren’t robots. When they spend most of their time reporting about genocides and floods, they must need to vent a little. So when a mule kicks one of their colleagues, or when a co-anchor picks some unfortunate wording, the newsmen and women can either bite their lip until it bleeds, or just enjoy it, possibly at the expense of their integrity. Same goes for reporters that are antagonized by jerks, sprinklers, or even bugs.

With that in mind, and in honor of Anderson Cooper‘s on-air laughing fit, here are 9 other reporters who lost their sh*t on air. And for those of you who missed it, here’s the Cooper video as well.

Classy, CNN.

9. Local News Team Laughs at Ridiculous Model Falling

These guys are 100% blame free. I mean, I don’t think the two spills this girl took on the runway were actually that funny, but you’re allowed to laugh at someone’s indignities when they’ve clearly and knowingly forfeited any dignity they might have had. How do I know that she forfeited her dignity? Because she’s carrying a watering can on the runways of Paris. Even if she hadn’t fell, she should be made fun of.

9 Other Journalists Who Need To Get Punched http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-other-journalists-who-need-to-get-punched/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-other-journalists-who-need-to-get-punched/#comments Thu, 03 Feb 2011 00:24:36 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=24258 What right did those Egyptians have to attack him, especially when there are so many other journalists worthy of a beating. Here are 9 examples.

Earlier today, it was reported that journalist Anderson Cooper was attacked by an angry Egyptian mob, and repeatedly punched in his head. Like millions of others, I was outraged by the entire event. What right did those Egyptians have to attack him, especially when there are so many other journalists worthy of a good punch to the head. Here are 9 examples.

9. Nancy Grace

Just look at this picture. Do you really need me to elaborate on why she needs a punch?

8. Glenn Beck

You can sit all day and argue about his political beliefs, but any grown man who makes it a habit to go on on national television and cry like a bitch deserves a punch. I’m a pussy, but at least I cry in private.

7. Keith Olbermann

Olbermann likes to blame the right wing for fostering a climate of political intolerance. His allegations might hold a little more weight if they weren’t coming from a man famous for his “Worst Person in the World” segments. Plus, I just read this attack article describing him as an asshole. It’s from the NY Post, so it’s probably garbage. But even so, I want to believe.

6. Natasha Curry

I’m not sure if it’s the phony tone in her voice, or the garbage she’s made to read, but Natasha Curry sounds like bad teacher talking down to a group of special-ed students.

5. Terry Moran

Back in 2007, when three Duke Lacrosse players were falsely accused of raping a stripper, Terry Moran said that people shouldn’t feel too sorry for them because they were white rich kids. I’m a white rich kid! I like strippers! That could have been me! F*ck you, Terry! It’s punchy time!

4. Bill O’Reilly

I don’t begrudge anyone for believing in god, so long as they aren’t using it as an excuse to blow up a crowded bus or take away my sweet, sweet pornography. But listening to this moron ramble on will make an atheist out of anyone. It’s one step up from Insane Clown Posse. Magnets, how do they work?

3. Matt Drudge

I give Drudge credit. Sometimes he goes after stories that the mainstream media is too afraid to cover. But the rest of the time, he’s going after stories that the mainstream media is too smart to cover. Tell us more about pet hoarding, Matt!

2. Billy Bush, Mario Lopez, Mary Hart, etc.

Although I certainly hesitate to call any of these assholes journalists, I would sure as hell love to see them all get beaten by an angry mob, so I’ve included them on the list.

1. Barbara Walters

I don’t want someone to be attacked just because they have a shrill, annoying voice and a speech impediment. But if that same someone was responsible for creating “The View,” then it’s punching time. Although they aren’t technically journalists, getting a few swings in at the rest of the cast is also encouraged.

The economically-depressed angry mobs of Egypt have absolutely no respect for our highly-paid news anchors. CNN‘s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Christianne Amanpour both report they were attacked by rioters while reporting from the streets of Cairo.

Anderson reports that he and his crew were overtaken by a group of Mubarak supporters who punched the anchor in the head ten times. I like to imagine he stood there and took it while his head bobbed up and down like a speed bag a la Leslie Nielsen.

“This Week” anchor Amanpour reports that she and her crew were surrounded and chased into their vehicle by a crowd shouting that they hate America. They then proceeded to smash the windshield on the fleeing vehicle. Way to go, Amanpour. That’s just what we need. Another country all kinds of pissed at us.

Not that we bloggers have it any easier. Just last night, I had immense difficulty while opening a pudding cup. Got chocolate all over my favorite Spider-Man t-shirt. Now I’ve got to drop it off at the laundromat and you JUST KNOW it’s going to take them a few days. (TIME and THR)

If you’re like me, the combination of the words “Gwyneth Paltrow,” “hosting,” and”Saturday Night Live” caused you to unplug your television until Sunday morning. Which means you missed this fun Digital Short starring Andy Samberg and Pee-wee Herman.

In the short, Samberg coaxes Herman off the milk-only wagon and learns that the beloved children’s entertainer has a bit of a problem. No, not that one. A drinking problem this time. Further proof that tequila changes a man. One minute your making ice cream soup with a room full of puppets, the next you’re assaulting police officers and respected news anchors. Totally reckless. Some drinking buddies are just bad for one another.

‘The Dilemma’ In Hot Water For Pointing Out Gayness Of Electric Cars http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-dilemma-in-hot-water-for-pointing-out-gayness-of-electric-cars/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-dilemma-in-hot-water-for-pointing-out-gayness-of-electric-cars/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 SOMEBODY GOT TOLD. Like all great vanguards, Vince Vaughn has come under fire for his radical views. The funniest part of the unfunny trailer for The Dilemma features Vaughn addressing a room with the line, "Electric cars... are gay," and now, a month later, controversy has sparked. Rumored electric car lover Anderson Cooper went on "Ellen" and flagged the line as offensive. "I was shocked that not only they put it in the movie," Cooper told DeGeneres. "But that they thought that it was okay to put that in a preview for the movie to get people to go and see it." Just like the trailer for Vaughn's Couple's Retreat, the offensive material will be removed. Not to defend Vaughn's fictional choice of words, but I have to agree he has a point. A car you plug into the wall? C'mon. (Deadline)
