Anderson Cooper Kicks 'Dreadful' 'Human Barbie' off Show
Talk-show host Anderson Cooper cut short his interview with controversial British mother Sarah Burge on Tuesday, telling the plastic surgery addict he found her "dreadful."
"I honestly have nothing more to talk to you about, I've got to be honest," Anderson Cooper said on his daytime TV talk show “Anderson,” looking disgusted as his studio audience applauded loudly. “I try to be really polite to all my guests. I just think you’re dreadful and I honestly don’t want to talk to you anymore.”
Sarah Burge, 51, gained worldwide attention when she announced she’d given her 7-year-old daughter a “voucher” for breast implants, to be redeemed after turning 18.
Nicknamed the “Human Barbie” for her self-proclaimed addiction to plastic surgery, Burge was also criticized for revealing she got her young daughter pole-dancing lessons at the age of 6 and helped her 17-year-old get Botox. She lives in the U.S. so her daughter, now 8, can compete in beauty pageants.
When asked if she had given her daughter Botox, Burge first denied it before admitting she was really just splitting hairs.
"No I didn't," she said. "My daughter is a professional dancer. She perpetually sweated on her forehead and so the best answer for that was actually a shot of Botox. And I didn't actually give it to her."
Seemingly fed up with the answers he was getting to his questions, Cooper cut the interview short, telling her, “I’m just going to stop.”
"That's fine, that's good," she said, smiling as she got up to leave the set.
