CNN’s Anderson Cooper continues to be a hot topic in the media this week. First the New York Times cited a CBS News executive as being a big fan, and now Kelly Ripa says that he was her favorite guest co-host on “Live with Kelly.”In addition, on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last night, Cooper overwhelmingly won a very special viewer poll ( see right). Sorry Piers and Wolf, maybe next time.
Cooper has his own daytime talk show now, so he won’t be replacing Regis Philbin, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a connection between him and Ripa. Watch Ripa explain, after the jump.
