Quiogue’s Anderson Cooper was a guest of Southampton’s Howard Stern Tuesday on the The Howard Stern Show for a revealing conversation.

In addition to opening up on his brother’s suicide and the timing of his coming out of the closet, Cooper said that he had talks with someone at The Today Show about the possibility of replacing Hamptonite Matt Lauer should Lauer leave. However, Cooper said an offer was never put on the table.

Cooper also spoke about his feud with Amagansett’s Alec Baldwin over comments Baldwin allegedly made to a paparazzo. Cooper and Baldwin famously had it out over Twitter.
