A Look Back At Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin's Play Date At His Summer Home (VIDEO)

When we imagine what it would be like to visit Anderson Cooper's summer home, we assume it would be filled with fancy decor, a staff to keep things neat while he's working and, well, just overall perfection, like Cooper himself.

But when comedian Kathy Griffin paid the journalist a visit back in 2011, we saw it was actually pretty normal. The Hamptons home is totally charming with a country-feeling throughout, thanks to the white linens on the bed, the shabby-chic kitchen accessories and of course, a front porch swing.

There were a couple of surprising elements: an empty fridge (he could only offer Griffin hot dogs) and teddy bears on his bedroom shelves. But his gorgeous pool definitely makes up for all of that.

To wish Cooper a Happy Birthday today, we're taking a look back at the hilarious visit from Griffin. So, watch the video above and be sure to click through our slideshow of his absolute best moments.
