Anderson Cooper daytime show with his mom, Gloria Vanderbilt
Anderson Cooper had an episode featuring his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt (Gloria Vanderbilt-DiCicco-Stokowski-Lumet-Cooper). It was a wonderful show and explored the death of Anderson's father at 50 years old, the death of his brother by suicide and tidbits of wisdom from his mother. Gloria made a comment that I found particularly insightful, "We are put on this earth not to look through people, but to help people through."
Gloria Vanderbilt has had an amazing life. She had a very traumatic childhood, lived through the death of her husband Wyatt Emory Cooper who died during open heart surgery and the suicide of her son Carter Cooper.
