Full-disclosure, I like the article so much because it speaks to exactly how I feel about the situation.
Without reaching out to Griffin, he tweeted the same night: “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in.
It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” Griffin acknowledges that Cooper was in an untenable position, but she feels that their long friendship afforded her a call or text message beforehand.

Later on in the show, Cooper’s love life became a hot topic again when a viewer sent in a Facebook question asking if the openly gay broadcaster had ever “been with a woman.” "I’ve gone on a date or two with a woman," a bashful Cooper answered, to which Ripa, 46, pressed, “That’s not answering the question!
