Famous friends Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen met when they were set-up on a blind date, the duo revealed on “The Tonight Show” late last week.

“You know when straight people know two gay guys and they’re like, oh you guys should date,” Cooper joked.

But things didn’t go well during their initial conversation, and the pair never actually made it on that date. 

“I knew within 45 seconds I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen,” the CNN host told Jimmy Fallon. “Andy violated my cardinal rule.”

“I remember that something that I did made him shut down, so now I know,” Cohen replied. 

Cooper went on to detail how Cohen immediately asked him about his famous mother – actress, designer and socialite Gloria Vanderbilt. 

“I wanted to date the Vanderbilt boy!” Cohen said. “I was excited!”

The duo then jokes about how they couldn’t have been friends when they were kids.

“We were so different,” Cohen said. “When I was 11 I had a paper route in St. Louis, Missouri- “

“I worked, I worked,” Cooper interjected. “I was a child model.”

While they never dated, the duo became close friends and even have a stage show they take on the road.
