Anderson Cooper's Mom Gloria Vanderbilt Interview

Anderson Cooper Shares His Mom Gloria Vanderbilt's Story

Anderson Cooper invited his mom Gloria Vanderbilt to his new talk show on Monday to discuss her eventful life. Now, the new daytime host has put the entire episode on his website, so more people can watch.

In the interview Gloria, 87, discusses the suicide of her other son, Carter Vanderbilt Cooper; he jumped from the family's NYC penthouse in front of her in 1988. She told Anderson, "There was a moment when I thought I was going to jump after him. But then I thought of you and it stopped me from doing that." The interview is a touching display of mother-son love, and anyone who has dealt with suicide will probably relate. But there are also some lighter moments, including post-menopause sex tips from Kathy Griffin. Watch the episode for yourself below.
