Anderson Cooper Hosts Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Event

November 17th, 2009 // 2 Comments

At the 8th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation event, entitled, An Enduring Vision, CNN correspondent, Anderson Cooper, played host. The event was attended by a swarm of Elton’s highest profile buddies, including Sharon Stone, who was recognized for her longtime fundraising efforts in the fight to find a cure for AIDS. Never one to be accused of being a wallflower, Sharon strolled the red carpet looking like Carmen Sandiego in a black leather trench, hat and sheer skirt.

Soap star, Susan Lucci, showed off her petite frame in a bright purple dress. She told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s a cause that’s so worthwhile. So many of us in the entertainment industry know so many people who this will touch.”

Courtney Love was dressed in a simple, black gown with a plunging neckline, looking suspiciously appropriate and put-together. Could things be looking up for the troubled rocker? God, let’s hope so.

    I can’t believe that anyone still finds Anderson Cooper to be attractive. Just look at him! Its all media hype.

    No wonder Anderson’s ratings are absolutely dead last in the nightly news race despite the heavy promotion and $10 million per year salary.

    You are blaming Cooper’s ratings on his looks? That makes no sense. The cable news ratings king is Bill O’Reilly who is as ugly as it gets.

    Comparing ratings numbers for shows in different time slots is pointless anyway, and FOX News is always going to blow the other networks out of the water in ratings until a competition network for the far right viewers is created and splits their audience.

    What really matters in ratings is where the show sits compared to the other cable news programs in its time slot since that’s what advertisers looks at. 360 dipped for a little while but it is usually second in its slot and is back there again now. Campbell Brown is doing bad, usually fourth in her slot. Rachel Maddow is usually third in her slot. CNN in general is not doing great in the ratings, though.
