Anderson Cooper Disinherited from Vanderbilt Estate

Anderson cooperAnderson Cooper has recently revealed that his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, will not provide him an inheritance. His mother reportedly inherited around a $200 million fortune, so where will it all go? Cooper has heavily emphasized his beliefs of earning his own fortune, working for CNN and several charities. Perhaps, his two other brothers will prosper more from the Vanderbilt fortune. Gloria also has the choice of fulfilling particular philanthropic goals; however, she is not known for her passionate support of any charities. Ultimately, a famous name can only buy so much, which family principle and economic realities will soon evidence.
