Anderson Cooper spent almost $3K to stay warm on New Year’s Eve
“It’s funny, because in the run-up, Andy kept having these appointments to get warm jackets tailored. I was like, ‘You don’t need a tailored coat, you need massive layers of parkas.’ So I knew he was going to really die out there,” Cooper, 50, said of his co-host, Andy Cohen.
Cooper contacted the Philadelphia-based Warming Store, which specializes in heating apparel, to outfit him.
“I spent $2,900 buying electric clothing,” Cooper explained. “I didn’t know that they had electrically heated clothing now. There’s a battery pack on your socks, a battery back on your vest, on your long underwear, on your hat, on your gloves, and they sold me the Ferrari of warming gloves.
“I had coats over it, but every now and then, you could press a button and your pecks would get really hot,” he continued.
