Burgess struck Cohen

NOT a place to warm up old rumors or create a negative press.
Burgess noted, "Sunday was a rallying demonstration of a well-connected man who openly disregarded one of his guests. If only it took time to know who I am and not to assume that I'm the character I play with on TV, he'd know how to conduct a proper interview at all! He continued, "I've received 4 Emmy nominations for acting art! NOT for being myself. He was lucky that I had my mind and Christian values that day. Always keep it noble. If you're friends with other talented celebrities, you will not be friends with other celebrities! He should rip a page from Anderson Cooper and learn how to do his job.

Eight months ago and we had a really nice conversation. I do not know. "
