Quote:
Vanderbilt was raised by a beloved nurse because her mother was away in Europe living a high society life, and by 1934, the tabloids were calling her "poor little rich girl" because of a sensational custody battle instigated by her grandmother and aunt.

In 1981, she told radio host Lloyd Moss, "As a child, I did not feel that I was treated as a person. I felt really that I was treated as an object. And nobody ever really, kind of, thought, 'What is she really like? What does she like? What are her talents? What does she want really?' "

When Vanderbilt's aunt — Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, who founded the Whitney Museum of American Art — won the custody battle, Whitney fired Vanderbilt's beloved nurse.
I think I'm ok with having the mom I do and not the wealth she had. RIP Mrs Vanderbilt

Anderson Cooper has like half her net worth that he actually earned. He doesn't need her money.

Yes and, according to the NPR article Gloria made her own fortune too. Yes of course having a highly recognizable name helped.

RIP fashion icon, but don't give me no sob story.

I love and follow fashion. I'm no expert by any means, but I can only remember her jeans from the 80's. Looks like she was quite the fashion maven herself though. I'll have to do some digging on her now. Just the little bit I turned up seems so cool.

Cooper does alright.

He does a better job with the news than Paris Hilton.

By your rationale nobody is responsible for anything just happenstance of their birth and circumstances.

You're choosing to interpret their statement in a black and white manner.

Life isn't like that.

Growing up in a wealthy and very well connected family will most certainly give advantages that the rest of us don't have available.

It doesn't mean they didn't have talent, drive and abilities in their own right, it just means that they started in a better positions, kind of like running a 100m race starting with a 10m head start.
