Okay, I knew that she was rich via The Vanderbilt railroad holdings, I knew that she was a fashion designer, but I sure as heck didn't know that she was Anderson Cooper's mother!

Yeah, like, Anderson Cooper did not get his high-paid positions because of some outstanding genius. The rich take care of their own.

She is referred to as, among other things, a philanthropist. I'd never heard her name like i have Bill Gates, Angelina Jollee or Gary Sinise in philanthropy efforts
She certainly contributed to bringing designer jeans to the walmart masses, so there's that... She had a nice ride on this side: rich and old. Good for her.
RIP.

She was an heiress and lived very high. But there was tragedy in her life too. Her other son, Anderson Cooper's brother, committed suicide as a young man by jumping from their Manhattan terrace. Even the riches would not keep him in the world.

Some people come into the world with $200 million in the bank, some dirt poor.

I worked on a tv movie about her childhood and the lawsuits, etc called "Little Gloria... Happy at Last."

Butů butů butů skywave, she was a woman, and therefore exempt from any wrongdoing.
