"Really interesting quote from Anderson Cooper, he's always been content to make his own money and the fifty two year old journalist, mother artist and heiress Gloria Vanderbilt she died on Monday after battle with stomach cancer. But although Vanderbilt was very wealthy Cooper made it clear in a twenty fourteen interview with Howard Stern that his mother was not leaving him anything. No trust fund nothing. Here's a clip of Anderson talking to Howard, and Robin about it. It's a under a minute. A multimillionaire and my multimillionaires. Oh, I don't know. Like, I don't know what's in my savings account. But. Lot. You know, there's no viz no inherited. What your mother inherited money? Why? Herod mont. I don't believe in inheriting money. Well, hold it not going to leave. One hundred million dollars. She first of all, that's. Million dollars. That's not gonna happen. But you mean it's not going to my mom's made clear to me that no my mom's made clear to me that, like, that's there's no there's no trust fund. There's none of that. But why, why is I just don't I think it's a I think initiative sucker. I think it's a curse. What's, what people beyond who's like inherited a lot of money that has gone on to do things in their life. If I grow from the time I was growing up if I felt that there was some like potty, gold waiting for me. I don't know that I would been so motivated and. Who's going to be going to be on TV tomorrow night yelling about reparations and how great they are Anderson Cooper. Hm. Harassed that you were going to respect is the. Can give people shit.
