Melissa McCarthy: There Are Other Things to Worry About Besides My Weight

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 29th 2011 10:30AM
Melissa McCarthy WeightMelissa McCarthy has had one incredible year. The star of 'Mike and Molly' took home the Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy, besting Edie Falco, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Laura Linney and Martha Plimpton, and received rave reviews for her scene-stealing role in the hit film 'Bridesmaids.'

She followed all that success up with her first guest host gig on 'Saturday Night Live.' That's an impressive body of work for one year. However, she still can't escape talking about her real body.

"I've been up and down," McCarthy told Anderson Cooper during an appearance 'Anderson,' Cooper's daytime talk show. "I've been much thinner since my second baby. I'm still working on it. It's a work in progress."

Anderson Cooper Daytime Show Accident Leaves Teenager in Coma

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 1st 2011 2:55PM
The early weeks of Anderson Cooper's daytime show saw him getting a spray-tan with Snooki, but things have turned far more serious after a young person involved in an upcoming episode was badly injured.

Gawker is reporting
that a teenager who was booked to appear on 'Anderson' is in a coma after sustaining a serious head injury in a skateboarding accident. A producer for the show had allegedly encouraged him "go out and film the crazy stuff that you do."

Cooper's reps have released a statement addressing the incident: "Our producers were working with a teen and his parents on a show about the science of the Teenage Brain, based on a National Geographic story. As part of our routine process, we ask guests for video footage and photos. We did not provide the family with a camera. On the morning that they were supposed to travel to NYC, we learned that the teen had been injured. We are very concerned about him, and are thinking of him and his family at this time."

Anderson Cooper Goes Spray-Tanning With Snooki (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 14th 2011 2:15PM
Anderson Cooper's daytime talk-show 'Anderson' is off to a fabulous start. We've already seen him uncomfortably spend the weekend with Kathy Griffin, who got naked once every fifteen minutes or so. Now he's gone spray-tanning with Snooki.

Their tanning date didn't get off to a great start, as the 'Jersey Shore' star decided to get her teeth whitened, making Cooper wait for twenty minutes. But after she was done, she escorted him to the tanning room, where she was impressed by his muscles. "I had no idea that Mr. Anderson had muscles. When he took off his shift, he had huge, like, peanut muscles ... cool!" she said.

After he had some fake ab-lines painted on, she said he'd look like Ronnie, a great look for a dignified newsman. Check out the clip after the jump.

Kathy Griffin Gets Naked -- Often -- At Anderson Cooper's House (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 14th 2011 2:00AM
Kathy Griffin, 'Anderson'Anderson Cooper invited Kathy Griffin to stay at his house, and while he may have been surprised by a lot of what went down, we certainly weren't. He had Griffin on his new show, 'Anderson' (Weekdays, Syndicated), where he showed some of the footage. It was almost 'Too Hot for TV!'

To make matters worse, the first night Griffin was in his house, she was there alone. That freed her up to send pictures of herself in various states of undress, draped all over his house. Clearly she was making herself more than comfortable in his house.

She then crawled into bed to continue making him uncomfortable, asking him if he wanted to touch her, and even revealing that she's wearing his underwear. But nowhere turned out to be safe from her shenanigans.

Struggling to control her emotions, Amy's mom Janis comforted her ex-husband Mitch as he covered his face with a handkerchief and wept while Cooper played a clip of Amy singing 'To Know Him is to Love Him.'

The former taxi driver said they have struggled to go on since Amy died, and he broke down as he spoke of the special bond that existed between him and his daughter.
