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.
