Anderson Cooper takes down ‘Real Housewives’ Countess LuAnn’s new song (Video)

Oh, Anderson Cooper. It never ceases to amaze me how you can report from Tahrir Square while being punched one day and the next discuss Kim Kardashian’s behind. Such a Renaissance man.

On Wednesday’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” the host used his “ RidicuList ” segment to take down a particularly heinous target: the new song from Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of “The Real Housewives of New York.”

The CNN host expressed his extreme dislike for the countess, as she likes to be referred to, darling, and the music video for her new song — and he uses that term loosely — “Chic, C’est La Vie.”

Apparently, Cooper is tired of people from the multi-city Bravo reality show making terrible music and he’s not going to take it anymore! He took the opportunity to also take down the tunes from “New Jersey’s” Danielle Staub, “D.C.’s” Michaela Salahi and “New York’s” Simon van Kempen.

But he won’t turn his back on “Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy for the Party.” Some things are just sacred.

Now that Cooper’s making the move to daytime TV with “Anderson” this fall, it seems he’s letting his “Real Housewives” flag fly. He recently told AdWeek, “For years in news I was ashamed to admit I watch ‘Housewives.’ Now that I’m at daytime TV, I can fully reveal that I like ‘Housewives.’ ”

Sorry Cooper, but that’s not the best kept secret. He’s appeared on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” with “Atlanta’s” NeNe Leakes, who apparently drunk dialed him.

“You can be very serious and very passionate about [serious news] and still like NeNe Leakes,” Cooper told Adweek. You tell ‘em!
