Anderson Cooper hosting Regis and Kelly

I always enjoy Anderson's hosting gigs at Regis and Kelly. Today they had two of my favorite artists, Drew Barrymore and the formidable Tori Amos.

I know that our international viewers don't have the opportunity of watching the show, so here it is for your convenience. Enjoy!

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3 Drew's Interview


Part 4 CPR


Part 5 TORI AMOS!!!!

Thank you so much for informing me of these great videos! You did it very quick! Living in Japan, CNN is the only channel I can watch Anderson. I can always count on this site!

Newsjunkie...I'm curious. What did you think of his body language, zest, attitude, etc on R&K? My thoughts are that all that was evident as of April 30th has gone back to March and April.

Anonymous said...

ahh he wanted to kiss Tori! how cute!

newsjunkie said...

Absolutely Anon 2:37, once again he looked like he did before- perhaps because he was back in New York? I wonder what is better in California? Nice weather and a beach? Oh no, not with that skin tone, lol. I could see the little wheels turning in his head though, with the Defibrillator. He was like, oh I'm going to get one of those and strap it to my body! Haha.... hey Anderson... if you're so concerned with your health, why don't you take better care of yourself? Honestly boy, taking a pile of pills does not cut it. You need proper diet and exercise! Sheesh. I can imagine him looking at his calendar and thinking "ten more years and I'm a goner". Well, with the way he's currently looking, I'm about ready to agree with it. [and oh, I've been CPR trained and we learned 15 compressions to 1 breath, I wonder why the difference.]

As usual though, he gets along with Kelly very well. I personally would go insane being anywhere near Kelly because I get irked by perky people, but, hey. He did something resembling the worst transitions I've ever seen, seriously. Either his mind was elsewhere or someone was prompting him, but really, it wasn't very good. And he seemed sort of nervous like he always does when he doesn't have the security of the script- poking his coffee mug, unbuttoning/buttoning his jacket a million times, and the infamous scratch-my-head-because-I'm-unsettled move.

I think he really doesn't like to talk about himself, although he made a couple jokes (don't put your coffee mug on my book or I'm leaving!) but seems rather out of it when having to be interviewed himself. He constantly repeats himself- I haven't heard him say anything new in months.

Has he lost himself? I wonder. What a terrible existence someone like him must have. I don't care how much you paid me, I wouldn't want it. I feel really sorry for him- he seems so.... ugh, you know what I'm saying. Little boy lost.

marie said...

In a actual CPR/First Aid class, you are taught to not only tell someone to call 911, but send someone else to find an AED if possible.

If you are alone, you are supposed to go call emergency number(s) first to get help, then attend to the person who needs assistance.

Yes, you are not supposed to touch the person wearing the AED pads as they are being shocked, unless you wanna get shocked too. Also, you can perform CPR with the pads attached. It is actually recommended to leave them on since taking them off and on can cause the pads to lose the stickness of its adhesive.

Is there a segment missing?

Anonymous said...

Newsjunkie: It's been looking to me like Anderson has been working out. Haven't you seen him in a t-shirt lately? His arms and pecs look rather brawny if I say so myself. I am getting tired of hearing him tell the same old stories he told when he began his original book tour a year ago.

newsjunkie said...

@anon7:03- er, actually I haven't ogled the man lately, lol. I believe the last time I watched 360 was in March (except for the stop snitchin' thing), and just now on R&K... and he was wearing a suit. If he was working out recently I'm hoping it was CARDIO and not just weight lifting!! Personally I like slender men, so, uh, let's hope he doesn't do an Arnold on us or it'll gross me out :)

newsjunkie said...

@anon 3:23... it looks like a segment is missing to me too. Anderson and Kelly apparently were going to do something with those sunglasses, and I don't recall seeing it! And that CPR segment, I'm sorry, it was pretty funny looking... and I'm still stuck on what the doc said for CPR and what I actually learned. For one, like I said, the ratio of compression to breath is different, and two, we learned to NEVER tip the head back like that in case the person had a broken neck or their tongue slid back and blocked their throat. We were taught to pretty much shift the jaw upwards to open their mouth up without causing those two problems.... whatever.

Anyway, suggestion to all the anons? It gets really hard to know who is who after a while. If you select "other" all you have to do is type in some sort of name that you can use all the time and it would be less confusing. No, you don't have to put anything in the "web page" field, just a name will do. Or of course, you could just register with Google....

Anonymous said...

Regarding Anderson's arm and pec muscles, I don't think you have to worry about him going Arnold on us.

K- P.R. said...

Missing segment may be the one in which Anderson spins the wheel. The person who was participating had the chance to win a trip to a Jamaican spa, but failed to answer the question correctly. The question was how many years has Kelly-Mark (or Regis and wife) have been married. Anderson asked to remove his sunglasses because he couldn't see with them- apparently they were prescription sunglasses and he was making funny faces like if he was blinded or something. That's all I remember from that segment.

@ Newsjunkie- Hi there- Remember me?

K- P.R.

newsjunkie said...

Hey k-pr, of COURSE! lol

you know you're a dork when....
you've been jamming with your band for four hours and the only thing on your mind is... what has been posted on Freaks when I wasn't looking??

Anonymous said...

I haven't watched the clips yet but I want to thank you for uploading the clips. When I learned he was going to host for R & K I was hoping you'd post it on your blog again like what you did before. Being an international viewer we don't get R & K here. Thanks again!

Something pissed me off at a Cinco De Mayo party I was at. I was sitting around a firepit at about midnight, and we'd been singing songs for hours at that point. Then someone started yapping about the TV, the actors, how the news sucked, etc. I said something like, "blah blah blah, CNN, blah blah, Anderson Cooper."

Immediately three people at the same time said, "You know he's gay, right?" And my usual response that that one: "Yeah I heard that," without saying what I think.

But that's what ticked me off. Not that they'd think that (I don't care) but because... when did that become his defining aspect? Why don't people say, "Yeah, I think he's a great anchor!" or "a good journalist, good writer, fantastic reporter" or something along those lines?

Why has he become "That gay guy on CNN"? Come on... there is more to him than that!

Regardless of who the man sleeps with, he's a wonderful journalist. And I don't want anyone to forget it!

Anonymous said...

And how do they "know" he is gay? I'm not saying whether he is or isn't because I don't know for a fact. But do they?

newsjunkie said...

THAT IS MY POINT.

Anonymous said...

Newsjunkie: sounds like we are on the same page.

Anonymous said...

You don't need to be a scientist to come to the conclusion that he is gay, but you're right when you say that it shouldn't matter; first of all he is a JOURNALIST, the rest is just gossip and people like to gossip(this is an awful truth,no matter how good he is with his profession people will always bring that aspect of his life-the gay part- into conversations)

newsjunkie said...

I am a scientist and I didn't say I'd come to the decision that I think he's gay. I've never said what I think, actually. How can you make up your mind based on appearances and having never met the person? It's a total preconceived notion and I don't play into that crap.

I have terrible gaydar anyway. He'd have to straight up tell me one way or the other. And since I DON'T CARE one way or the other, he ain't gonna have to tell me, now is he? :)

anonymousABA said...

Part of the problem stems from CNN's overabundant marketing of him and Anderson agreeing to the exploitation. He's a journalist, for crying out loud, not a celeb sex symbol. To see his "hot" bod, butt, baby blues & furrowed brow on billboards all over Manhattan, in mag articles, on items sold in the CNN store, hamming it up with Kelly on R&K; sends a different message to some that does not jive with "serious journalist." What other journalist do you know who wears skin tight jeans leaving little to the imagination? In his articles, he mentions masturbation and premature ejaculation as easy as a grocery list. While I don't have issue with that, others read different things into commentary. He talks personal quirks as though viewers are friends. That can turn a crazy person into an even bigger nutcase. His method attracts both genders, sometimes unhealthfully. Consider the gagworthy fansites. They attract viewers who obsess 24/7 about his body, clothing, schedule. They claim to know what makes him tick. I have to believe this is not all about his viewers creating his image and going wild over their assumptions. I think he feeds the frenzy all by himself, with the aid of CNN. Same for the straight/gay/bi question. Perhaps if he didn't bring it up at all, didn't address it and acknowledge that people wanted to know, there would be less emphasis on what he is. It IS unusual to remain mum as far as gender preferance. It's not that big a deal. However, Anderson makes a big deal out of it, so the crazies want to know more as do normal everyday people. I don't blame Anderson for wanting to have privacy and a personal life. But I do think he's barking up the wrong tree to gain respect. With current perception society has of him as a closeted gay but very sexy anchor, he'll never reach the position of credibility he craves if gay and straight viewers are fixated on his crotch. You can't have your cake and eat it too. The same gig that flies for me & you, flies for Anderson. Until he can walk on water and part the Dead Sea at the same time, he will be judged by the same court of law that we all are. I agree with all of you about not knowing what he is. I see AC the same way we saw the scarecrow on the Wizard of Oz. Sitting on the fence while not knowing which way or both ways.

Anonymous said...

He admits to being gay, he will go the way of Thomas Roberts, on to other opportunities. People can be bought. There are people who cannot walk away from a $50 million contract.

Saying nothing either fuels the fire. Saying he is straight, he will be lying.

If he is straight, what's the deal with "admitting" that?

anonymousaba said...

That's not what I'm saying at all, anon 2:37. He promotes himself as eye candy and plays the sexy like a fiddle, inducing the sex image over the sophisticated journalist. Take Peter, he had 4 or 5 wives. Marriage was not his forte. Yet he maintained his dignity throughout his career by not toying with his public as to his marital strife. AC is all over the board, on every area except HIS sexuality. He has to realize that this is what is going to keep him two steps back. If he were to say he was straight, but busy, how would the fan in Kansas know otherwise? If he were to stay away from the subject of sex altogether, that might be even better for his career. Up to now, he waves a flag that promotes more interest in him, but most of that is unhealthy interest.

Oops, I messed up my comment. I said:

@anonymousaba- I totally agree with you. You said what I'm saying all the time, but BETTER!! It's not just CNN's fault, it's HIS fault. He lets everyone play with it- he doesn't seem to care because it boosts his popularity. But after a while that would probably get to you, don't you think?

I bet he's insecure. Unfortunately insecure people need other's approval and adoration to make themselves feel better. This may sound mean (and surprising, coming out of ME) but honestly I feel that people need to be solidly who they are. Be strong and be who you are- that's all we want from him, right?

Anonymous said...

He knows who he is

anonymousaba said...

Exactly. The ultimate goal is to be comfortable in one's skin while having confidence that others will find value in whom and what we are and represent. If Anderson knows who he is, he has a strange way of relaying that knowledge on the TV screen and in print. If AC were a secure man, proud and satisfied with his image and the person he is both inside and out, he would probably not model in the saccrine photo op's he's famous for. If you notice, he says the same stuff over and over again in interviews. When he throws out a bone, it's an extra clue into his personal life without divulging who he is. The premier news anchors would kill if the cameramen were to zerop in on their crotch, legs, butt. Not AC. There's just more of it. Why can't we see a segment of 360 where the focus fails to pan on the pretty? Not going to happen if Anderson doesn't demand it so. Newsjunkie, you say it more than well. Believe me.

anonymousaba said...

Yep, that's all we want from him here. I wish we could say he has that, but he obviously doesn't. If you are not grounded and solid in your real world life outside of work, the insecurities are going to spill off into your career. If he's going to hang with the likes of Oprah, he should learn her hype of the word NO.

newsjunkie said...

@anonymousaba- thanks. I try.

And I frequently would notice the full body shots and think to myself, "gee, he's POSING". Posing, yep. Playing up to the camera. I'm sure he's well aware how good looking he is and is using it to his advantage... at the expense of his credibility, IMO.

Hmmm... Anderson read Freaks last week. I hope he doesn't read THIS stream of comments and think we hate him or something :( No, I still like you Anderson! LOL.

I think it's going to be really interesting when I see him up close on Wednesday (pending that the dang line isn't nine miles long for the book signing). I'm actually going to bring my laptop with me and then afterwards go hang out somewhere to type up my thoughts while they're fresh in my head.

This should be interesting....

Anonymous said...

Anderson knows how to work the camera and the suits he wears. He knows he's got it and uses it to his full advantage, and CNN isn't exactly stopping him, the cameramen knows what he's doing.

He knows how to use his sense of humor and "snarkyness" to get people to like that cute personality of his.

newsjunkie said...

And... apparently his snarky cuteness irritates anonymous 6:13.

He IS snarky.

He IS cute.

He DOES know how to work that pose.

He IS a good journalist.

He STILL has my respect.

If you don't like it, don't watch. I like him and I want to watch, but the production of his show SUCKS (are you listening, CNN?! I sent you hate mail!!) and so I DON'T watch and I haven't since March.

Apparently not watching Anderson will not kill me. It will not kill you to stop watching either, anon 6:13!

Anonymous said...

you sent hate mail?!!

newsjunkie said...

Well it was SORT OF hate mail. It was NOT a positive email. This is what I said during the Anna Nicole Smith over-coverage... (I keep everything!):

“ANDERSON COOPER 360̊ is a fast-moving, surprising and provocative alternative to the typical network evening newscast. Backed by the global resources of CNN, Anderson's anchor desk is Central Command for a 360-degree look at world events -- covering not only the day's top stories, but the fascinating, the unexpected and the underreported.”

I have nothing but respect and admiration for Anderson Cooper himself. The show, how it is presented, and the stories that are being reported, are another matter entirely.

It is a sad reflection of our country when our top stories are about celebrity antics. I believe there is a war going on somewhere, but you wouldn’t know it from watching the first hour of 360. The show is supposed to be a look at world events, and frankly, they’re the ones being “underreported”. Why is it that in a two hour show, I see 95% fluff and crap, and 5% real news?
I must admit, I rather enjoy watching Anderson and Jeff trapeze around in the Amazon. The animals are cute. The bottle fed manatee was adorable. But the piece is being presented as our “Planet in Peril” and then... let’s pet the cute fuzzies! Or watch Anderson scream! I laughed at him; certainly. I teased him too. If this were an Animal Planet piece I wouldn’t even be complaining. Tossing some “Raw Data” at me does not excuse these segments. If you’re going to present this as an ecosystem piece, I’d appreciate some information on the ecosystem- accurate information. The information that has been presented so far was either not researched or was thrown together at the last minute and you can tell. There are some intelligent viewers out there, not just Anderfans. We notice things that are misrepresented, such as “deep in the Amazon” when they were clearly on the outskirts, standing in front of their hotel, no less. The sensationalizing of everything should stop.

“Death and destruction sells.” Yes, yes it does. So present it in such a way that I feel more informed and perhaps with some information about how to change things. Just because I’m 31 doesn’t mean I want to stare at Anna Nicole or Britney Spears. If I wanted to hear about these things, I could go pick up the Enquirer or other trashy magazine. CNN has obviously decided to try and cater to the Yuppie set and I don’t like it. Where is the real news? And why does it take three anchors in three different locations to tell it to me? Leave the celebrity news to the tabloids! Please.

Myself and quite a few others are also rather irritated with the lack of information to us when a feed drops. If you can’t communicate with someone out in the field, I would rather know that than suddenly have a repeat broadcast from four months ago tossed up without warning. It is not necessary to state “Anderson cannot come to us live because after Jeff pricked his finger his hands swelled up like two balloons” but it would be nice to say that you’re having satellite feed issues and meanwhile, watch something old. And if it is old, it should be labeled as such. Non-frequent viewers, for instance, would not have been aware that the piece on Afghanistan was not filmed last week. I think they should know.

I’d really like to bring to light what I think of CNN doctoring the transcripts. I frequently read transcripts to refresh my memory of what was said. How can I do that if the transcripts have been changed? Do you guys read the things that are said on the internet? I’m sure someone does; that must be why you think we want to watch fluff on TV. Well, just in case you missed what I’ve been saying, I don’t want to watch fluff. Please show me the news.

If this unpredictable, extremely unconventional show continues to destabilize, not even the allure of watching Anderson will keep viewers in front of their televisions. I’ve seen quite a few people express their disgust already and quit watching. Most of them hate the new anchor, Kiran, as well. It struck me that CNN is simply trying to re-create the Anderson-and-Kelly-Ripa dynamic. What makes you think I like Kelly Ripa? I don’t. Please stop trying to cater the public.

I realize that CNN must do the things they do to bring in ratings. If they feel that having young, attractive, energetic reporters is all that it takes, they are sadly mistaken. The reason I watch CNN is because I want news from around the world. My favorite show is Anderson’s, however, he’s a much better field reporter than an anchor (sorry, Anderson).

Please bring the old 360 back. I don’t like whatever it is you’re doing to it. And if it stays this bad (or gets worse), you’re going to lose me, too. And I’m taking all my friends with me.


Suddenly Kiran went bye-bye (thank GOD), and the very next day Anderson said the now infamous, "there's a war on, there's a war on, there's a war on." I laughed. Apparently someone over there DOES read the email :D *SORRY ABOUT THE HEINOUSLY LONG COMMENT*

Let me know if you agree with me though. I "threaddend" them that I'd stop watching, and then... I did.

Anonymous said...

and Anderson reads THIS blog, GET A FUCKING LIFE!

newsjunkie said...

No need to shout. Or scream swear words.

If he wants to read it, so what? The majority of us apparently really LIKE this blog, and we have intelligent conversations in the comment section. Discounting, of course, the people that aren't making intelligent comments. Generally speaking though....

If you hate Anderson so much, or US, why do you keep coming back? Oh I know. Spreading discontent is apparently fun for some people.

anonymousaba said...

Newsjunkie, Some snoop around in hopes of gathering and collecting more Anderson info. It's like the junkie's fix. They travel from one site to another until the craving is satisfied. Then there's the next day and the one after that.

jr said...

@Newsjunkie: I've haven't posted at this site for awhile (work busy and got fed up with all of the troll activity that would attack this site and those commenting) but I do have to say that AC360 has turned it around the last few weeks and the shows have been quite good, IMHO. You should consider watching again. Whatever cloud was hovering over him in the past seems to have lifted. I'm actually looking forward to watching his show again and it's been a long time since I felt that way. For what it's worth....

newsjunkie said...

LOL jr, you're the third person that has told me that in the last 24 hours. Heh. I guess maybe I should actually have a look? Guess it won't kill me. I hope.

newsjunkie said...

O.M.F.G. I have now been laughing hysterically at the comments posted on the 360 blog. ANDERSON SPEAKS DUCK! AND APOLOGIZED TO IT!

I nearly suffocated I was laughing so hard. I absolutely LOVE his sense of humor (and when he's in a good mood, man does his sense of humor really come out). I am definitely looking forward to Wednesday, ha!!

anonymousaba said...

360 has gotten better in the last few weeks, but as I prefer not to devote 2 hrs to watching too many random news reports,we incorporate local news with 360. I also like Jeffrey Toobin's legal analysis. My only complaint of late is the subliminal subtleties edged in and the obvious panning of the sexy. It would be fine if that's the direction Anderson wanted his show to go. When you hear about fangurl or boi moments in naughty chairs and discussions about his tight t-shirts and ties, you know his credibility as a journalist is not quite there.

newsjunkie said...

Yeah, he's totally playing up on the sexy instead of the journalism.

I don't think the naughty chair comments are intentional. He just blurts out whatever he's thinking sometimes.

Which could be bad, like the "is that a frog in your pocket or are you just happy to see me" moments.

But hey. I laughed my butt off, so anyway... I actually made some serious fun of him on that one (his Ranidaphobia). I posted on his blog (and they put it up) something about "boy that was funny, do it again!!!" He makes me laugh, and I like it.

anonymousaba said...

I definitely agree, he's snarky, naturally funny and has a great sense of humor. Similar for any attribute, he needs to know when to quit & when to let it out. It's all part of being a journalist at the top of his game. Anderson has the potential to be great. I think he'd be successful if he'd only remember why he's there and what he intends to accomplish.

ivy said...

@jr- welcome back! Hope you stay around

@anonymousaba

I agree with a lot of what you said, but I don't agree that the unhealthy attention is mainly anderson’s fault. C’mon, It's TV, not radio, tv should be dynamic and looking good was never bad for tv. I don't think it's caused by camera angles on 360. He used to sit at his desk and attention was the same, the fan discussions about ties and naughty chairs ect. have been there for a very long time. The new set works same way for other anchors yet it doesn't stir up same reaction. People see what they want to see and really his main fault is that he's good-looking and lean. He has charisma and that attracts people, in a good or bad way. There are big Brian Williams boards in New York but people don’t notice that. There are serious journalists who get same kind of comments on blogs because they're good looking, Lara Logan, for example. It's not her fault people prefer to notice her looks before her great work. The truth is people like to see eye-candy with balls (either gender). People are obsessed with looks, celebrities and american royalty. If Anderson wasn't Vanderbilt I wonder if the insanity around him would be the same. Panning to entertainment and appearing on late shows for no particular reason is his fault. And that is a real threat to being perceived as a serious newsman. Plus CNN's constant marketing him as a celebrity and a very inconsistent show does a lot more damage to his credibility then having crazy fans.

anonymousaba said...

You're right, Ivy. It's not his fault that he looks great and thus naturally plays up his better attributes. It's the tight tight t-shirt, skin tight jeans ensamble that I don't get. It also attracts the nutjobs enmasse. I think it sends rather mixed messages when his jeans are so crotch tight (such as during an episode in NOLA last year), there is nothing left to the imagination and his report has the viewer checking out his body instead of listening to what he has to say. The laughs were a main topic of conversation amongst professional males and females in my office. No one commented on his report. If all he had in his bag were strategically contoured jeans, the cameraman could have filmed him from the waist up, but he didn't. If he wants viewers to focus on his mind via his charisma and handsomeness, that's okay. But I think he should leave the sexy beefcake gig at home.

Anonymous said...

11:56 & 12:18 PM: I agree with what you say. Perhaps if Anderson were married there wouldn't be this "frenzy". Single, good looking, successful guy, you know what I'm saying.

newsjunkie said...

If he were married? Hmmm... dunno. People would sit there and analyze the crap out of the relationship, don't you think? Or complain that his significant other dresses him funny.

Yeah well, he needs SOMEONE to dress him. I think he gets dressed in the dark sometimes. Or he's colorblind, or ran out of socks.

And uh, I never noticed the "skin tight" jeans you guys are talking about. I'm not looking down that far, you perverts :)

Hi Everyone!
Wow you have been busy! welcome Rudy, Mio Bella, Pebbles, JR, KPR ( is that a serial killer nick?, regulars and anons! I know, I should visit more and participate more, but I'm glad that you are having fun, enjoying your topics while I'm a bit away, I owe some emails... but I promise I will write back...

Drop me a line of specific topics you will like us to engage, I'll do my best to bring you sources, videos and info to follow.

@rudy, I'm sort of stealing Barrymore's "follow your freak flag" anthem...

NewsJunkie: you may have a point, I guess I don't know. Maybe people would say he just married a female to shut up those gay rumors (I will say rumors because I myself do not know)?
Who knows.

Regarding his dress, he has made the best dressed list, more than once I believe, so somebody likes it.
