Anderson Cooper Scores Exclusive with Winehouse Family
CNN‘s Anderson Cooper is debuting his new daytime talk show on Monday, September 12 and he’s announced his first guests.
Cooper will sit down for an exclusive interview with the parents and boyfriend of Grammy winner Amy Winehouse, who was found dead at the age of 27 in her North London home this past July.
Mitch and Janis Winehouse will discuss their daughter’s very public battle with substance abuse and how they have been coping since her death.
According to a press release about the show, the pair are hopeful that in speaking out about the realities of addiction they will be able to reach other families dealing with similar situations.
Anderson is also slated to talk to Winehouse’s boyfriend, film director Reg Traviss, about her state of mind before her passing.
Other guests later in the week include comedienne Kathy Griffin, Snooki, Sarah Jessica Parker and the cast of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
