Women love Anderson Cooper.
Never mind that he’s silver-haired, dryly serious and, well, gay. Allegedly. (He also giggles like a schoolgirl meeting Justin Bieber, this clip proves — watch to 2:42.)
There’s just something alluring about this 44-year-old CNN newsman — he’s host of the network’s “Anderson Cooper 360” (@AC360) — to women who he’s not attracted to. Allegedly.
Sounds complicated? It is.
But Cooper is likely banking on his female fan base when his nationally syndicated, one-hour daytime talk show, “Anderson,” premieres on Sept. 12.
Here’s the promo for his new show
He knows who he’s replacing — Oprah Winfrey, who retired (sort of) last month — and women can’t wait to get moremoremore of the silver-haired fox. (Back to Oprah, Anderson’s show is sliding into the same time slot — 4 p.m — in Hawaii.)
So what is it about Cooper that makes women swoon?
I have friends who think he’s everything from boyishly cute to panty-dropping hot.
I actually don’t get it.
Sure, he’s attractive. And he’s smart. And, apparently, he’s got a keen sense of humor. And maybe that’s the appeal. But I wouldn’t go so far as to start a Facebook fan page declaring my completely love and adoration for the guy.
PS: He’s not into women.
So you tell me. What’s the appeal?
