Anderson Cooper: Scott Baio Was My Childhood Crush (VIDEO)

Anderson Cooper revealed one of his childhood crushes during a guessing game on his daytime show Friday.

He had to guess the names of 70s and 80s television shows based on clues from guest Jessica Walters. Walters gave the following clue: "One of the stars was Anderson's childhood crush."

Guest host Andy Cohen looked quizzically at Cooper, who spit out, "Which one?" Cooper correctly guessed "Joanie Loves Chachi."

"Wait, was the crush Scott Baio —" Cohen began to ask.

"Yea," Anderson admitted. He said that Baio was once a guest on the show, but that he "didn't have the courage to tell him" that he was one of his childhood crushes.
