Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper Dish on Their Botched Date (Video)

Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” host reveals he almost went out with CNN’s Silver Fox… until they talked on the phone

What started off as an innocent question by a “Watch What Happens Live” fan ended up being the best part of Monday’s night’s show on Tuesday.

When a caller asked host Andy Cohen and his two guests, Anderson Cooper and Kelly Ripa, how they knew each other, Cohen and Cooper revealed they almost went on date once. But after talking on the phone, they both realized it wasn’t in the cards.

“We were set up on a date years ago,” said Cohen, “but it never happened.”

But, then, Cooper gave viewers some more juicy details.

“We had a phone call to talk before we went out on a date and I don’t know how but both of us sort of decided, based on that one phone call, ‘We’re not going to go on that date.’”

That was enough to pique Ripa’s interest.

“What was it?”

Both Cohen and Anderson claimed they don’t remember. You can watch the clip here.

By the way, the last time Anderson was a guest on “WWHL” in July, he served clubhouse viewers a hefty dose of TMI when he revealed Cohen’s favorite sexual position.

“Watch What Happens Live” airs Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. on Bravo
