Who knew having Anderson Cooper fill in for Regis Philbin on Live With Regis and Kelly with Kelly Ripa would or could turn into a full blown media slugfest?
Cooper, who regularily fills in for Philbin was visiting with Ripa about Ali Lohan’s apiring "career" and made some comments about Ali and her mother Dina Lohan that could be considered less than complimentary by the Lohan clan. Never one to pass up the opportunity to talk to a celebrity mag, mamma lion Lohan fired back through Ok Magazine telling them that "People are just cruel! This is bad karma for him." To which Cooper responded on Anderson Cooper 360 (see above clip).
Of course daddy lion Lohan, Michael Lohan, decided he couldn’t pass up an opportunity for a little publicity and a share of the spotlight telling Access Hollywood Anderson Cooper should "keep his opinion to himself…I think Anderson Cooper is an opinionated, hypocritical idiot who should be an adult and keep his opinion to himself. He is the last person to judge anyone, when he and his own family have their own issues."
Who knew it took Cooper to turn Live With Regis and Kelly into The View? One thing is forsure, people will be tuning in next time Anderson guest co-hosts on the show.
