The Story of My Mom: Gloria Vanderbilt
Friday, January 06, 2012
Anderson spends the hour with his 87-year-old mother, actress/author/painter/fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt, who shares the story of her remarkable life. From the headline-making custody battle over her as a 10-year-old girl, to the loss of her husband and Anderson’s father, author Wyatt Cooper, and years later, the suicide of her son, Carter.
Gloria shares how she has remained resilient through it all. Anderson also surprises his mom throughout the hour with special guests, including Diane von Furstenberg, Kathy Griffin and a special performance by Gloria’s favorite singer, Judy Collins, who performs Amazing Grace, the same song she performed at Carter’s funeral.
