Kelly Ripa went there.
Ripa and Anderson Cooper appeared on Andy Cohen's show Watch What Happens Live, and the results were both hilarious and a bit uncomfortable to watch. Of course, we know Cooper to be the serious CNN news anchor who travels to dangerous parts of the world in order to get the story.
But the atmosphere is just a bit lighter on Cohen's Bravo show than on a CNN broadcast. The host, who is a mutual friend of both guests, told Ripa and Cooper to stand face to face and fire questions at the other person. The goal of the game was to make their opponent feel frustrated or embarrassed.
Ripa brought out the penis question right off the bat, and it was game on. She asked Cooper, "Are you circumcised?" She also rapidly followed the penis question with asking him if he wanted to have sex and if he wanted to see her vagina. The Silver Fox never really recovered and admitted through tears of laughter, "You're flustering me! I'm flustered." He also added, "When she said 'vagina,' that's when I had to stop. I got very nervous."
Later on in the segment, host Andy Cohen directed a question from a caller to Cooper. The caller wanted to know a secret about Cohen. Perhaps wanting to deflect some of the embarrassment off of himself, Cooper immediately obliged, "I know a lot of secrets about Andy. I guess the one that would surprise most people is he's a top."
The tan host smiled but it was easy to tell that he was uncomfortable with Cooper's declaration. An extended moment of silence followed while Cohen was attempting to get over his embarrassment, then he asked, "Why, you think people think I'm a bottom?"
Ripa declared, "I don't."
"Believe me, there's nothing wrong with that, but I'm just saying I think that would surprise people," Cooper explained. "And I don't know this from personal experience, but from conversations I have had...I mean, it surprised me when I heard about it."
