In Anderson Cooper's attempt to reach the daytime talk show audience, he sometimes invites questionable characters to be on his show.
Case in point: Great Britain's "Human Barbie Doll" (Sarah Burge). Sarah is a semi-celebrity across the pond for putting her 7-year-old on a stripper pole (it's good exercise, she said) and giving her a breast implant voucher for when she turns 18 (her 7-year-old wants to "become a plastic surgeon"), while also injecting her 15-year-old daughter with Botox so that she doesn't sweat during dance performances.
For some reason, Anderson invited this creature on his show and became so disgusted with her answers that he announced he had nothing more to discuss, called her "dreadful" and politely urged her to leave the stage.
So why did Anderson book her to begin with? In a backstage video he claims to "regret" the decision, but hoped Sarah would "communicate honestly" about her unorthodox parenting practices. Instead, he thought she was just using his platform for publicity.
