Anderson Cooper Emotionally Opens Up About Final Weeks With Mom Gloria Vanderbilt

Anderson Cooper is reflecting on his final moments with his late mother, Gloria Vanderbilt.

The CNN anchor sat down with Andy Cohen at the 92nd Street Y to discuss his new book Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty, which aired on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy on Tuesday (October 5) with multiple rebroadcasts throughout the week.

“We had an amazing last week or two together. We would just lay on her bed and hold hands. And I found this old, sorry, I know I’m rambling, but when she got told the diagnosis…I told her along with her doctor, this wonderful Dr. Tom Nash. She paused for a long time. And she’s like ‘Is it treatable?’ And he said, Look, you can go through treatments, but it’s like a miracle moonshot, if it has any impact, and you’re gonna be in a hospital.’ And she was like, ‘no, of course not,’” he recalled.

“And then she paused for a long time and she said, ‘well, it’s like that old song. Show me the way to get out of this world, because that’s where everything is,’ which is an old Peggy Lee song. And then I looked up Peggy Lee and I was looking, and there was this amazing video of Peggy Lee singing ‘Is That All There Is’ on YouTube,” he continued.

“It’s a black and white of her in a nightclub. And I showed it to my mom and she was like, ‘oh, that’s marvelous.’ Which was a big word my mom liked. And it became this thing that we would look at this Peggy Lee video of her singing ‘Is That All There Is.’ And then like once or twice a day…we’d started to, she started to sing along to it and I would start to sing along. And then we had this great moment where she was holding my hand, while we were listening to the song and it was like, we were dancing and it was lovely,” he went on to say, starting to cry.

“Um, she also was watching Shark Tank a lot, which was weird,” he amusingly added.

He also revealed something unexpected about his mother.

Anderson Cooper Will Actually Inherit Most of His Mom's Fortune

Anderson Cooper never expected to inherit money from his mother Gloria Vanderbilt, but it appears he’s going to get most of her fortune.

The socialite and fashion designer passed away last month at the age of 95. At that time, previous quotes resurface in which Anderson made it clear that he didn’t have a trust fund and that he didn’t believe in inheriting money.

Now, Gloria‘s will has been revealed in new court documents.

Gloria‘s eldest son Leopold Stanislous Stokowski will receive her New York City apartment and “all the rest” will go to Anderson, according to ET. Her other child, Christopher Stokowski, who is estranged from the family, was not named in the will.

If you don’t know, Anderson‘s mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, passed away this week at the age of 95. She was the great-great-great granddaughter of shipping tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt.

“I think my mom and dad both wanted to get across to me that … I obviously grew up with great privilege and was very lucky and was able to afford college and not have student loans and they would pay for college, but beyond that, it would be up to me to make a living,” Anderson told People years ago about not inheriting her money after her death.

On his parents’ insistence he make his own way, Anderson added, “I was always very appreciative of that because I never – I always looked at people who inherited money and they never seemed to really accomplish much on their own and it seemed to sort of change the person they were.

Anderson‘s dad, Wyatt Cooper, passed away at the age of 50 during an open heart surgery.

It was her greatest gift to me,” Anderson posted, along with a series of photos of his late mom.
