Anderson Cooper Fights Back Tears as He Honors Anthony Bourdain

Anderson Cooper is famous for his infectious laugh. At the same time, when he grieves, audiences cannot help but grieve with him.

Last week, Anthony Bourdain died of suicide. Like so many, Anderson Cooper used this platform to honor his late friend.

We've included the video. It is a beautiful tribute to a man who touched so many lives.

on his show's dedication, Anderson Cooper speaks, and he is clearly still processing this heartbreaking news.

"Many of you, like many of us, are feeling a whole range of emotions: shock, sadness, confusion that a man who was seemingly having the ride of his life in the middle of his life has now suddenly reached the end of his life."

Folks, celebrities are real people, and they are left just as stunned and wounded from a sudden loss as anyone else.

"It's hard to imagine he's gone."

Anderson waxes poetic a little, but it's very appropriate under the circumstances.

"[It's] hard to imagine that he's not just off on some far away journey, hard to imagine that he'll not return with new stories to tell, new foods to share."

Anthony Bourdain went on many trips abroad, to sample new food and the accompanying cultures.

That is just not the case this time.

Anderson Cooper clearly struggles, getting repeatedly choked up, as he discusses his departed friend.

"Honestly, talking about him in the past tense it's, it's really — yeah, it's really hard to — hard to imagine."

Heartbreaking.

"Anthony loved drinking and eating, tasting the delights of the world immersing himself in other cultures and countries — bringing the rest of us along on his journey."

And through that, Anthony was able to expose countless Americans to unfamiliar cultures and to educate so many that something being different did not mean that it was frightening or bad.

"It's impossible from the outside to every fully know what goes on in someone else's heart or in their head."

Many people who struggle with suicidal depression are able to hide their symptoms.

"It's impossible to fathom how quickly one's life can change."

Or how quickly one's life can come to an abrupt end.

Bourdain

Anderson Cooper, whose own brother committed suicide at 23, has tremendous empathy for Anthony Bourdain.

"But certainly, you know, the pain he must have been feeling, at least in that moment or in those moments, and the loneliness he must be feeling."

Millions are grieving this loss.

"It’s just terribly sad to think about."

Not just the loss, but the hidden pain and turmoil that must have led up to it.

"And makes me very sad for him to have — to have a succumbed to that."

Anderson discusses the impact that Anthony had on his life.

"He gave me hope for what one’s life can become, can be at 61."

Many of the moments that Anderson Cooper's segment shares feature him and Anthony as they had appeared on past specials.

Anderson himself is one of those people who seems to "not like food," which is difficult to imagine. But he's unlikely to photograph his meals or go out of his way to try new things.

Naturally, his time on camera with Anthony was so often spent trying particularly exotic foods, the kind that might give pause even to someone who loudly and proudly loves food.

This video shows Anderson try blood sausage, a thymus gland (which produces T-cells for the immune system), and even part of an aortic valve.

Anthony explains that he sees accepting food — no matter how strange or even potentially hazardous — to be part of a cultural contract.

In his many journeys abroad — to over 80 countries — he acted as a sort of cultural ambassador, and he brought viewers with him along for the ride.

Some truly monstrous people have tried to shame Anthony Bourdain for his death.

Obviously, someone dying from suicide is being neither selfish nor cowardly. People do not ask for suicidal depression any more than they ask for any illness.

Anthony is remembered by his loved ones, including his 11-year-old daughter.

This is a heartbreaking reminder that suicide can strike anywhere at any time.

If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts, you can always call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

Ronnie Magro Fights with Girlfriend, Apologizes for Jackassery

When Jersey Shore returned after a VERY long hiatus, we figured we'd be talking about Ronnie Ortiz-Magro again.

But not like this.

The muscle-bound reality star has been making headlines all week for an extraordinarily ugly and personal spat with girlfriend Jen Harley.

Making matters especially disturbing between these two?

They welcomed a daughter into the world mere weeks before blowing up at each other.

And we mean BLOWING UP at each other.

Scroll down for a closer look at what has gone wrong between Ronnie and Jen, along with a video of the parents nearly coming to physical blows.

This is legitimately ugly stuff. That poor baby girl…

1. New Parents

Ronnie ortiz magro girlfriend
Ronnie and Jen got together in July of 2017 and seemed excited to become parents in early April 2018 to a girl named Ariana. Heck, Ronnie, often known forhis extreme temper, sounded like a changed man when his daughter was born.

2. He Actually Said This Upon Becoming a Father:

“You live your life not ever really knowing the meaning of true love until you have a child. True unconditional love… I understand when everyone said you’ll understand ‘when you have a child of your own or when you become a parent.’ I know I have still tons to learn but I’m excited for this new journey & chapter in my life with my beautiful girlfriend & my daughter.”

3. But Then?

Oh f ck
Oh man. Buckle up and prepare to wince. It was three weeks after Jen and Ronnie gushed over their baby girl when things turned UGLY.

4. It Started with a Sex Tape

Not between Ronnie and Jen; between Jen and an ex-boyfriend, prompting Ronnie to GO OFF on Instagram and ask: “If your significant other keeps sex videos of their ex, shouldn’t they show enough respect to delete them, esp after being in a new relationship for over a year?”

5. Can’t Turn a Hoe Into a Housewife

As you can see above, this is what Ronnie actually said… about his newborn’s mother! It would be a funny line to include in a Jersey Shore script, less so when it applies to your real-life baby mama.

6. Harley’s Comeback?

It was pretty good, if you also ignore the context: “You can’t turn a coke head into a father.”

Kanye West: Having Explosive Fights With Kris Jenner Over Erratic Behavior?

Lately, fans have been concerned that Kanye West has lost his mind. Reports say that even his family fears that he’s on the verge of another mental breakdown.

But on top of the news that he’s cutting people out of his life comes something more startling.

Whatever’s going on with him has allegedly driven Kanye to do the unthinkable: clash with his momager-in-law.

People reports that Kanye and Kim’s mother are not getting along.

“He’s had huge blow-ups with Kris.”

(I absolutely cannot imagine arguing with Kris Jenner under any circumstances)

“She sees how erratic he’s acting and is most concerned about her daughter’s brand.”

That sounds very, very Kris. And she’s right — Kanye’s behavior makes Kim look bad.

“She’s also trying to be a good mother-in-law, so he’s having explosive issues with her too.”

That is alarming to hear.

“Everyone is really, really worried.”

But not everyone is worried. Another source says that his recent behavior isn’t anything out of the ordinary … for Kanye.

“A lot of this is just Kanye. He’s always been like that.”

It is true that Kanye is infamous for his lack of impulse-control.

Many of those who don’t really listen to his genre of music first heard of him in 2009, when he usurped Taylor Swift’s time at the microphone at the VMAs.

It’s that kind of nonsense on which he has built his brand.

As the source says: “He stirs the pot.”

He sure does.

“Kim is trying to control him and the situation, but he can’t be controlled.”

That much is clear.

“She’s trying her best to support him on social media and show a different side of things, but it’s just not working.”

Unfortunately, it seems that Kanye’s famous ego may be his own undoing.

“He genuinely believes he’s God and a genius and that he can do everything on his own.”

This report claims that his estimation of Kim isn’t quite as high as his estimation of himself.

“He has a great love for Kim, but in his mind he doesn’t think Kim is a genius.”

Ouch.

“And he’s telling her he knows what he’s doing”

Kanye’s egomania and total lack of impulse control may be reminiscent in the minds of many to Trump, whom Kanye apparently once claimed to “love.”

But Kanye is unlike Trump in a couple of major ways. For one thing, he didn’t just inherit his wealth and he’s genuinely successful. For another, he doesn’t pose a clear and present danger to the world.

But also, as a source mentions, Kanye’s wife actually loves him. That can make a huge difference.

The source says that Kim’s tweets aren’t to counter Kanye, but to signal that things are good between them.

“It’s more like [she’s saying] ‘You guys are off.'”

The source emphasizes that Kim is Team!Kanye, all the way.

“She is always loving towards Kanye, always concerned with whatever he’s concerned about, always in his corner.”

“It’s very hard to deal with. He’s all over the place. If you can’t be part of his creative genius, he’ll cut you loose. That’s what he says.”

Another source disagrees, however, and asserts:

“That’s part of being Kanye. He’s willing to take risks with his public persona. He doesn’t take it as serious as the internet takes it.”

So, basically, some people are insisting that this is just business as usual for Kanye. Others worry that this is above-and-beyond what’s normal for Kanye and that he’s headed for another breakdown.

Who is right?

We may find out before too long. We just hope that he comes out of this alright.

And if that’s what he wants, too, we’d advise that he listen to the people who love him.

… And also that he not argue with Kris Jenner. Ever.
