Anderson Cooper and Nancy Pelosi Have Something in Common

Anderson Cooper
Cable centerfolds Anderson Cooper and Jeff Corwin came together last night at the Museum of Natural History to celebrate their joint project, Planet in Peril. Of course we made a beeline straight for Anderson and introduced ourselves. "I'm working on my biceps," he assured us, without our even asking. Ay caramba, Anderson pays attention to what we blog about! IT'S LIKE WE'RE FRIENDS. Okay, anyway … Planet in Peril included shoots in many exotic locales, like bug-infested jungles and the arctic north. While in Greenland, Corwin told us, everyone had to use the same public bathroom igloo, called a "shigloo" (we have no idea why). Including Anderson. "In fact, the shigloo is only partially covered," Anderson told us later. "It's got a wonderful view. It's quite exposed." Wow, Anderson's glutes exposed. We just had to sit down for a minute. "Nancy Pelosi came to the field site we were at," Corwin added. "I believe Nancy Pelosi may have visited the shigloo." Man, the ice caps have never seemed so white. —Amy Odell Earlier: Iraq Trips Hamper Anderson Cooper's Gym Schedule

What Animal Scares Jeff Corwin the Most?

Shark Week is an annual Discovery Channel tradition, and the network celebrated the institution's twentieth anniversary with a big Pier 60 party the other night. "We don't do toaster week or ostrich week," Discovery host Mike Rowe commented, although "twice as many people died from ostriches as from sharks, 250 died from toasters, and only eight died from sharks. (Somehow we don't think "Toaster Week" would deliver the same ratings.) We ran into Animal Planet star Jeff Corwin at the party — who famously had a terrifying run-in with an angry elephant — and we asked him about sharks and other scary animals.
