She's BEAUTIFUL folks. I think she's more beautiful than she ever was! Looks amazing for her age.

She's a beautiful, compassionate, empathetic and classy lady

And yeah, speaking of "ALL GROWN UP", Anderson's certainly grown into such a hot, sexy and handsome man. He's GORGEOUS and one of my favorite people. Certainly one of my favorite anchors/reporters ever too.

He's so CUTE in this pic too!

I've always admired Ms Vanderbilt because she's come through so much tragedy in her life. Money and social standing doesn't equate to an easy charmed life folks and she's been through so much loss. So has Anderson.

As a child she went through a lot and if you haven't read of or heard her story, read "Poor Little Rich Girl" and then she lost her son which is THE worst thing a parent can ever face. Losing him was also such a loss for Anderson as well.

Then she lost her husband and AC lost his Dad so they've been through a lot of heartache and pain and loss.

Both of them have come through all that with such dignity and class. Anderson's used the compassion and empathy that she and his Dad instilled in him to become the GREAT reporter he is today because when he does a story, he does it from his heart.

Ms Vanderbilt and Audrey Hepburn were always THE classiest ladies to me.

You'd never know that AC's one of THE Vanderbilts either if you didn't know he was because he's so down-to-earth and humble and never used his Mom's name or her fame as a ladder for his own career and fame. He earned everything he has today and that's a true testament not only to what kind of person he is but to how his parents raised him and the values they instilled in him.

AC's no little spoiled rich brat and that says a LOT about him AND his parents.

I wish Ms Vanderbilt and Anderson all the best. They've come through so much with dignity, class and a sincere wish to help others and make things better for others. God bless 'em both.

She's unrecognizable from the woman I remember viewing 20-30 years ago. She looks more like Mary Tyler Moore. And Gloria's the yummy Anderson Carter's mom.

Wow Kathy Stephens, that was beautiful. Thank you for the information, which I wasn't aware of. But I am aware of the doors she opened for us, during the 70's and I have always loved her wrap dresses.

I still remember the first GV dress I had and how sexy I looked in it. WHY, are we all so judgemental?? Really, why? Can't we just be happy for someone, regardless of their facial features, whether good or bad.?

Look at Susan Boyle....aren't we all happy for her. BUT, I would guarantee that we won't recognize her after her handlers get ahold of her.

Oh well, didn't mean to rant but I sure feel better.
