CNN anchor Anderson Cooper grew up
wondering whether Cher was his sister.
Cher, who is scheduled to perform at
Sunday's Dance on the Pier, which closes New York City's Gay Pride
Week, appeared on cabler Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.
Cooper rang the set's doorbell and
surprised Cher as she talked with host Andy Cohen.
“Of course, I grew up adoring you and
watching you, and my mom [Gloria Vanderbilt] always wanted to have a
girl, she had four boys, and so she always called you her 'fantasy
daughter,'” Cooper said.
“So, I literally, when I was really
young, I grew up thinking like, 'Am I related to Cher? Is Cher my
sister? I really don't quite understand this.'”
“That explains …,” Cohen started.
“I don't know what that explains,”
Cher commented on Wednesday's Supreme
Court rulings knocking down DOMA and paving the way for the marriages
of gay and lesbian couples to resume in California: “It's about
time, come on.”
“Actually, they should have never had
to do it. We should never have to do that kind of stupid stuff,”
Cher said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
