THE RIDICULIST: Anyone Who Sneezes

BLOGGER'S COMMENTARY: Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know I haven't been exactly happy with the content of AC360 for the last week or so. I, also, give credit where credit is due and tonight's 360 got it right, in my opinion. I know it was the big news of the day, but Anderson did a nice job with his opening report and the first half of the program had good guests with intelligent discussions, looking at different aspects of the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki. I've come to accept that the Conrad Murray trial will be a nightly segment and I do enjoy Sanjay. All in all a good program and on a Friday night! Thanks, Anderson and Team 360 ~ Wonz

Anna Faris: Was My Ex The One?

Anderson opened today's program with Anna Faris, star of the movie "What's Your Number". They discussed the movie and Anna's personal experience with finding "Mr. Right" ~

video


After the break Anna was back for another segment which included psychotherapist, Heide Banks sharing from the audience ~

video


Next on the program was Ashley Brinkman who thinks her ex-boyfriend, Jeff Ray might be the one. First Ashley shared their story and her feelings on Jeff since the break-up. Jeff then joined Anderson and Ashley on stage and the two discussed where they are currently. Heide Banks was still in the audience and started out her advice to Ashley and Jeff by saying, "Love is amazing and relationships are so hard. When you come in with a limited point of view, called I want my partner to be different, it's nearly impossible."

In the next segment we met Janet Nodine, who saved a break-up letter for nearly thirty years. Chris, author of the letter, joined Anderson and Janet on stage. We find out that Chris married someone else after leaving Janet the letter in 1982. In 2009 Chris contacted Janet through an e-mail to her business and in August of 2011 they got married. The last part of the show dealt with Heide Banks' three things you need to do before you revisit the past. #1 You've got to forgive 'em and forget about everything that went on in the past; #2 You've got to go slow, really slow, because you are just getting started to know each other again; and #3, the most important thing, we all have memories of what that relationship was like, it's about what's happening right now...so meet the new every day.

There were more questions from the audience before Anderson thanked his guests and ended the program.

Anderson: Former FLDS Teens, Plus, Kody Brown & 'Sister Wives'

Anderson opened today's program giving a rundown on today's guests and why he decided to do a second program on polygamy ~

video


Jessica, Thomas, LeRae and Holden, four kids who recently got out of the FLDS sect, were back to discuss growing up in the isolated community and the week they spent in NYC. None said they would raise their families in a polygamist family. The following clip shows some of their adventures and reactions ~

video


Next we were introduced to the "stars" of TLC's "Sister Wives" a polygamist family that is not part of the FLDS group. Kody Brown has four wives and 16 children. His fourth wife Robyn is 8 months pregnant with their her first child (Kody's 17th)joined via Satellite from LasVegas because she is due next month. Meri - wife #1, Janelle - wife #2 and Christine - wife #3 joined Kody on stage and 4 of his kids joined the discussion via satellite with Robyn. They discussed having multiple wives, wife order, life on the reality series and a current lawsuit over violation of polygamy laws in Utah. They claim they are more scared of the police than of the government. Anderson didn't seem to grasp the concept of multiple wives and I'm not sure I do either; even after hearing the "Sister Wives" defend their lifestyle.

Audience questions were asked and after a break Anderson brought the two groups together for a very interesting and heartbreaking segment ~


video


Anderson ended the program stating his interest in the subject and thanking his guests for taking part ~

Anderson Cooper on The Late Show With David Letterman

Anderson was a guest of David Letterman's on Wednesday night's The Late Show With David Letterman. Dave and Anderson had a little pre-interview fun ~

video



Once Anderson made it out of the back room with the Alpaca and onto the set, talk turned to serious issues in Haiti, Egypt, Syria and Libya. Toward the end of the interview, Dave asked Anderson if he was trying to be the new Oprah, since Oprah was fired. (Fans of Dave's would expect nothing less of him when talking Oprah.) Then Dave asked Anderson why he hadn't been invited to be a guest on 'Anderson' and silliness ensued! Enjoy ~

Anderson: Cast of the Movie "50/50"

Anderson opened today's program talking about his guests - the cast of the movie "50/50" - why he wanted to do the program, his love of movies and introduced Seth Rogan ~

video


Anderson tried something new today - asking Seth to be his guest co-host, they talked about Nancy Grace's DWTS wardrobe malfunction, Anderson played his favorite 911-call about the cops making pot brownies (we've seen this on AC360 a number of times), the videos of Courtney Stodding (think a couple of AC360 RidicuLists), and Anderson showed a photo an "Anderfan" tweeted of his nephew who looks like a young Anderson.

After the commercial break Will Reiser (Seth's personal friend and screenwriter of "50/50" ) and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who plays Will in the movie) joined Anderson and Seth on stage to talk about the movie ~

video


Next we are introduced to Angelic Huston, who plays Joe's mom in the movie and she discusses the impact making the movie had on her life ~

video


Finally, we meet Anna Kendrick, who plays Joe's therapist in the movie ~

video


Anderson took to the audience and introduced us to Amy and Olivia. Amy was in need of a liver transplant and Olivia donated half of her liver. They shared their story and talked about how humor helped them through the experience. More audience questions followed.

video


Anderson closed the program by thanking his guests and saying he would see us tomorrow.

Anderson: Anderson's Food Intervention

Anderson opened the program from his kitchen and showed us what was in his fridge. He then went on to discuss his relationship with food, what foods were the mainstay of his diet, and we met his assistant Joey who's responsible for the daily run to Boston Market for Anderson's lunch ~

video


Anderson's first guest was Sondra Kronberg, an eating disorder specialist and nutrition therapist, with whom he discussed his eating habits and she suggested reasons for why he eats the way he does ~

video


Next we were introduced to Joyce and Marla who have extremely limited diets - think french fries and bread - and after hearing their story Anderson offers a taste challenge to them. They decline, but Anderson tries coffee, brussel sprouts and...

video
...spinach! (I agree with Anderson !)



Next Anderson took to the audience where Sondra discussed types of disordered eaters ~

video
and then some audience members shared their strange eating habits, and there was a discussion of people having varying amounts of taste buds and how that effects our eating; and the audience was given an opportunity to take a sour taste test to test their taste buds. (Apparently Anderson has few to none?)

Next we met Anderson's friend, Antonia and her five children, who were Skyped in from Boston, MA. They talked about the challenge of getting the family to eat together...

video
and Laurie David, author of the book The Family Dinner joined Anderson to discuss, you guessed it, the family dinner and why it's important.



Next we were introduced to the Lord family (via a video)and they shared the challenges they face with sitting down to a meal as a family. Anderson offered them a challenge ~

video


After another video of a camera crew documenting their challenge, they joined Anderson and Laurie David at a table to discuss what they learned from the challenge ~

video


Anderson closed the program by offering the studio and at home audience a chance to join Anderson's Sunday Supper Club ~

video
