This morning, CNN's Anderson Cooper sat in for Regis Philbin on Live! With Regis and Kelly and during the host chat, Anderson confessed to Kelly Ripa his deep love for American Idol and his obsession with Paula Abdul. And then Kelly and Anderson compared their respective Paula impersonations. (And people wonder if Anderson's gay!) Later in the program, he told Kelly that he thinks Ryan Seacrest is "very talented" — without even a hint of irony in his voice. Game, set, match. Clip begins above.
