Anderson Cooper Could Care Less What Star Jones Has to Say

Anderson Cooper Could Care Less What Star Jones Has to Say

I have to admit, I like Anderson Cooper’s style. He says what he has to say and then, that’s it. Just because you take a shot at him, it doesn’t guarantee a response will be coming back your way. Just ask Star Jones. The Today Show correspondent decided to make a remark this week alluding to the fact that Cooper’s coming out of the closet on television was a public ratings ploy. Not that his being gay was ever much of a secret and the media was always speculating about his sexuality so finally confirming it was more like him taking a moment to tell his viewers’ something they already knew. Star’s comment seemed to come out of nowhere and since then she has continued to try and rile up the CNN anchor. According to E! this is what Cooper has to say about the controversy,

“Don’t get me in a war with Star Jones now. I said my piece on Star Jones. I am not one to have a feud,” says Cooper. “She tweeted back something. I said my piece and then she tweeted me and I’m not responding.  “Actually, The Today Show tried to book me to go on with Star Jones so we could tussle. I was like, I’ve got nothing more to say, nor do I want to be in a room with her. I’m done.”

What do you think Star’s real beef with Cooper is? Is it the fact that he finally came out, garnered a bit of attention and is still widely loved and respected? Or is it that her own career and life never seem to have gone exactly as she would have liked?  When she began in journalism she was sharper and more serious in her tone. Perhaps she wishes for a career and reputation like his?  Tell us your thoughts on this feud in the comments below!

    Good for Anderson Cooper for not stooping down to Star Jones’s level. He is a class act and don’t give a flying **** what other people think of him. Gloria Vanderbilt should be proud of him and raised him right. Keep up the great reporting and good luck with your new show.

    Star Jones is angry about something BUT in my opinion Anderson Cooper is sliding over to the tabloid-y side of things. Hard to take him seriously as a legit journalist when he is involved in stuff like this (or his daytime talk show. I was actually shocked when he decided to do that show , what serious journalist does a show like that while still hosting a serious news show?), I know it’s supposed to show his real side but sometimes he seems almost catty. Question : was Star Jones really ever a journalist? I thought she was a lawyer that was chosen to be a TV personality?
