Anderson Cooper Shares Mother’s Sexual Romance Story

On his show’s year-in-review panel last night, Anderson Cooper revealed more than his audience might have expected to hear about his mother’s romance memoir.

Responding to panelist Dan Savage picking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as his scandal of the year citing Ford’s knack for sexual jokes, Cooper told a story about his mother:
