  1. I could not care less about selfish billionaire Anderson Cooper. What did he ever do for anyone but himself ?

  2. I'm surprised that the Dr. didn't mention that melanoma of the eye is a possibility.One type can be fatal.

  3. ICEBLOO - How about when he saved a young Haitian boy from Looters a couple of years ago?

    For the record, Cooper may be a Vanderbilt but is likely a millionaire, not a billionaire.

  11. Someone with is complexion should never see the light of day. The Vanderbilt trust has been sliced and diced among the heirs to the point where is unlikely even to be a millionaire, except perhaps from his professional salary.

  12. Is he stupid? On the water, you have the sun bouncing back up at you--not just shining down on you...

  13. I know this sounds shallow but he is just too cute not to love.

  14. He's looking a little raggedy these days...just saying

  15. Bruno voice: "Sunglasses. Heard of 'em?"

    Anderson has turned into such a little infinite drama queen.

  16. There's an app for that. Sunglasses!
    Get better Anderson!

  17. ICEBLOO..!! Seriously..WTF!
    I have to admit it doesn't matter what the story is about there is always some bitter unhappy individual that feels it necessary to make us all completely aware of how unhappy they are.
    The age old saying .." if you have nothing nice to say.."
    Follow it..there is really no need for your comments whether the individual "did" something for you or not.!!

  18. A few years ago, I saw Anderson in midtown on a blindingly sunny day. I was tempted to tell him to put on some sunglasses.
    @Perry: That may be true as far as the railroad Vanderbilt money goes -- but Gloria Vanderbilt herself made millions on her jeans and other clothing lines. She's 88. Trust me: unless she leaves her fortune to charity, Coop will inherit millions.

  19. When on the water or snow with bright sunlight you should wear polarized sunglasses or goggles. They're not just for vanity, they can keep you from going blind...permanently. I really thought as a seasoned, professional broadcast journalist, you'd have more sense. Not to mention in a few years if you manage to avoid skin cancer, your face will eventually look like a well used football.

  20. He's become quite the attention whore, hasn't he.

  21. LOL You fags are so bitter and angry,for no reason. No wonder the young guys (wait,don't you label every attractive young guy "twink" and mean it in the most derogatory way possible) don't want anything to do with you and I don't just mean sexually. Your miserable asses will be forgotten soon enough.

  22. @MCCOYSMARKETNYC-Unfortunately, Gloria V. was ill-served by her manager/accountant during her jeans biz and ended up owing the IRS $$millions in unpaid taxes. She had to sell some of her residences to settle her debt to the IRS. I do't think much was left over from that biz as a result.

  23. @Icebloo: Are you a total a**hole as your posts would indicate or are you just another poster trying to get attention?

  24. On a more serious note Anderson has such fair skin he should be concerned about sun exposure and deadly skin cancer. He should see a dermatologist regularly.

  25. I'm Portuguese and I've lived all my life in Portugal (I'm 38 and live in Lisbon), and never heard of anyone with burned eyeballs... So, fellow americans, fear not our Sun :)
