Don't mess with the Silver Fox! Anderson Cooper got fired up Tuesday on his self-titled daytime talker, when guest Sarah Burge came on to defend her astronomical, 100 plastic surgery procedures.
Burge, who dubbed herself the "Human Barbie", showed up on the media's radar when she confessed she allowed her underage kids to partake in cosmetic surgery also. Burge admitted she gave her 7-year-old daughter a voucher for breast augmentation as a birthday gift! Burge attempted to defend her decision to give her 15-year-old daughter Botox; this did not sit well with Cooper. Watch Cooper lay the smackdown after the jump!
After getting a second season renewal for his talk show Anderson last fall, it looks like Anderson Cooper’s daytime talker is getting a new studio for its upcoming second season, according to Deadline.
The talker, which has originated from Jazz at Lincoln Center’s The Allen Room since its September launch, will be moving to the CBS Broadcast Center in New York.

Cooper, unsurprisingly, thinks that his reportorial reputation will remain untouched no matter how many reality stars he interviews during the day. “You can be very serious and very passionate about [serious news] and still like [Real Housewives of Atlanta star] NeNe Leakes,” he said. “People know that you can juggle different things.” READ MORE
