Anderson Cooper Gets Drunk With Kathie Lee And Hoda (VIDEO)

"Today" show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb joined Anderson Cooper on Tuesday to host his daytime talk show "Anderson Live," and things got a tad out of hand.

The show was pre-taped the week before as Cooper is currently reporting live from the conflict in Gaza and shutting down haters on Twitter.

The "Today" show's dynamic duo were welcomed on Cooper's set with their signature glasses of vino. Cooper said he was not a big drinker but sipped on his beverage throughout the show. When Cooper started to stumble on his words, it became clear that the daytime host is, indeed, a lightweight. "I am drunk," Cooper said. "It's sad but true."

While recalling the experience on the "Today" show, Gifford joked that Cooper is a "cheap date" but insisted that she and Kotb did not make him drink.

"He's a grown man! He makes his own choices," Gifford said.

Kotb and Gifford seemed to enjoy their experience co-hosting with Cooper. The daytime talk show host drank with them and even let them apply a make-up trick to cover up his wrinkles.

Watch Cooper get a tad loopy from his vino in the clip above, and watch Gifford and Kotb attempt to fill in his worry line in the video below:
