Anderson Cooper Tells Plastic Surgery Addict 'You're Dreadful', Says He Won't Talk to Her Anymore: VIDEO

Barbie

Sarah Burge, a woman who is in the Guinness Book of World Records for undergoing the most plastic surgeries, incurred Anderson Cooper's quiet wrath this week after telling him about starting her daughter on the same process and encouraging her to pole dance.

After he told her "you're dreadful", Burge got up and left the show.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Was this Anderson or an episode of Jerry Springer??

  2. I agree with many here that Anderson was unprofessional, hypocritical and judgmental. And how ever smart and adorable he is, there is always air of superiority, know-it-all arrogance about him. Not cool...

  4. I think Anderson exercised poor judgement in inviting her on the show. And perhaps even poorer judgement in how he handled what he saw as a dishonest discussion. As someone said above he could have used his own contempt to perhaps contempt she may have experienced from the public, and then addressed her daughter. I'm not sure how I feel about this. His apology seemed sincere and it was charmingly worded but still, I think it reflects well on him as a person but very terribly as any kind of respectable media figure.

  5. Yeah, and what about the audience clapping! Herd mentality at its best.

  6. Staged, manufactured.

    Anderson Cooper? Maury Povich? Same difference.

    Who are the people who watch this cr*p and who are the audience members? Really, it's complete cr*p, no redeeming value, and not even entertaining in a silly, cr*ppy sort of way.

    Well, he's no doubt paid well, that's what counts, I suppose.

  7. While I disapprove this Human Barbie to go pro-plastic surgery for her young child, I do not like how Anderson handled the interview either. Not a hater here, but shouldn't he did some background check on the guest first and lead the interview? If he knew this guest is troubled, why invited her in the first place? And even if he is trying to highlight the issue of plastic surgery, the outcome with the guest forced to leave and failure to made his statement was not really nice.

  8. Anderson was right.

  9. I only saw these two clips, but Anderson was WAY out of line here.

    He invited her on the show, and decided to make a value judgment about her (and apparently only her), and rudely booted her off the show, after user her for his own publicity.

    Then he claimed he wasn't rude, while continuing to use this event to promote himself.

    Someone please take this guy down a few pegs.

  10. Anderson, if your objection (per the second video here) was that she was not communicating honestly, what about your own honesty, candor, and integrity about The Topic That No One is Supposed to Ask You About?

    Anderson, you do want to avoid sliding down into Jerry Springer territory, don't you? If so, take the high road -- all around.
