Anderson Cooper: Loves Factual Reporting, Dance And "Real Housewives Of Atlanta" (VIDEO)

CNN anchor appeared on Ellen's Election Day special and talked about how Ellen has made dance an issue this election, how he LOVES watching Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" and "Dancing with the Stars," and more importantly how he thinks fact is the most important part of hosting a news program and how he tries to be impartial:

"Seeing Barack Obama dance, then compare that to Michelle Obama, and then to have Barack Obama come back on and have to re-dance ... it was some pretty dramatic moments that you've had on your program...

I like to keep abreast of the Dancing with the Stars," he said. "I like to keep abreast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. These are some of the show that I'm currently a little bit obsessed with."

When DeGeneres said she hasn't gotten into the Bravo reality show yet, he shot back, "What have you been doing? So you don't know anything about [show star] NeNe?

Then talked turned serious, and he said, genuinely how he loved reported the truth and the fact.
