Anderson examines butt enhancement plastic surgery, April 30
By April MacIntyre Apr 30, 2012, 19:59 GMT
Anderson Cooper covered plastic surgery today on his chat sow "Anderson," and delved into the white hot trend of butt enhancements.
On Monday, April 30, 2012, Anderson hosted several women who each had some sort of procedure, and explained why they elected it. He then spoke to the doctors who each did the procedures.
Guest Brandi discussed the many plastic surgery procedures she went through in order to look more like Carmen Electra.
Brandi told Anderson, "I've had rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and liposuction."
When Anderson asked why she wants to look like someone else, Brandi replied, "Let's put it to you this way, Carmen Electra was my idol. Look at her, she's beautiful."
Next guest Ana was inspired by Jennifer Lopez's rear end, and had a lipo-sculpture procedure done by Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendieta.
She had the fat from her waist transferred to her bottom, and said she did it because she was 45 years-old and no matter how much she exercised, was not losing any more weight.
She said, "I do still have my Latin curves, to which I'm very proud of."
Dr. Mendieta is widely coinsidered to be the preeminent doctor for gluteal sculpting, and has worked on some of the most famous rear ends of A-List Hollywood.
He urged all those considering the procedure to make sure to select a surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Meow is a rescue cat from Santa Fe and, as the shelter worker explained, 37 pounds for a cat basically equals out to a 600-pound man. That’s horrible. You guys wouldn’t laugh at a comic strip about a horribly obese person, would you? No!…Not unless they were trying on a bathing suit. Zing, Cathy!
Anyway, you’ve got to feel for Meow. Not only is he (Yes, it’s a boy. Although Cooper had a hard time telling, likening the cat to SNL‘s Pat character) horribly unhealthy. He was also forced to make his big TV debut on a Monday. And fat cats hate Mondays!

Editor's note: You can watch a live view from One World Trade Center on CNN.com/live.
More than a decade after a terrorist attack brought down New York's twin towers, their under-construction replacement will become the city's tallest building on Monday.
The placement of a column of the 100th floor will bring the colossal new steel structure of One World Trade Center tower to a height of 1,271 feet – surpassing the frame of the Empire State Building, which is currently New York's tallest skyscraper, by 21 feet.
Built on what was referred to as ground zero in Lower Manhattan, the building is expected to reach 1,776 feet when it is finished by early 2014. The Willis Tower in Chicago, formerly known as the Sears Tower, is the country's current record holder at 1,450 feet.
The One World Trade Center building will have three top-floor observation decks. Its first 90 floors will be designated for office space, and the following 10 floors will be reserved for air conditioning, heating, and electrical equipment.
Despite years of political infighting and real estate squabbling that delayed its construction, more than half of the building has now been rented, with a tenant list that includes Conde Nast publishing company and a Chinese real estate investment firm called Vantone Holdings.
In its shadow, twin reflecting pools are situated in the footprints of where the twin towers once stood.
A memorial at the site of one of the original World Trade Center buildings.
The names of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the 2001 attacks, as well as six people who died in the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, are emblazoned across bronze panels ringing the pools.
The steel beams will be placed atop the structure on Monday, one day before the one-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death. The project is bringing a major milestone to the city and country, said Mike Mennella, the construction executive who was in charge of building the first towers and is helping to build the new structure.
"Today is a day where we can really look back and say the milestones we’ve surpassed and overcome are certainly more significant than the ones ahead of us," he said. "The building is in position now where we can see it coming from the top, and see it being finished off in a very, very significant way."
As the man who built the first towers, only to watch them fall during the terrorist attacks, Mennella knows just how important it is to be able to rebuild and start a new chapter in lower Manhattan.
"It's also big in the region," he said. "Seeing this building from all over the region – Long Island, New Jersey, New York – it's just a statement for the region that we’ve reached a real milestone."
Mennella said he came to the site on September 12, 2001, amid the devastation and always hoped he'd be able to be part of an effort to rebuild. He felt it wasn't just about rebuilding an icon of New York's skyline, but about helping heal and move forward.
"I think as people look at the building from afar and then realize the site that it sits on, the memorial it adjoins and what the site is about, what was lost here, and what is now being put back together – it's an exciting moment," he said.

U.S. lends support in hunt for notorious African warlord
From Nima Elbagir, CNN
updated 4:10 AM EDT, Mon April 30, 2012
Obo, Central African Republic (CNN) -- The lush, green forests of central Africa have long been the playground and refuge of the continent's most-notorious warlord, Joseph Kony.
His Lord's Resistance Army, which began with the aim of overthrowing the Ugandan government, has since spread to remote hinterlands on the borders of the Central African Republic, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Though officials don't know exactly where Kony is, U.S. troops have been sent to the area to help find and defeat the LRA leader.
They have made progress. But as CNN has learned, much work remains to be done -- both to locate Kony and to restore a sense of stability and safety to the region.
"Kony is definitely still a threat. He's been on the run. He's on the decline, and in survival mode, but he is still dangerous and he's going to be dangerous until the LRA are eliminated," said a captain with U.S. Special Forces.
The captain, who CNN agreed not to identify because of concerns for his safety, spoke in Obo, a village in the Central African Republic.
President Barack Obama directed the deployment of about 100 troops to central Africa last year to help hunt down leaders of the LRA. Distributed among four operating bases, they are advising regional forces.
"We help our partner nation forces ask the right questions -- the who, the what, the when, the where and the why -- to get all the information," the captain said.
The LRA has been on the run since being scattered from a temporary base in Congolese territory by a botched 2008 U.S.-backed attack on Kony's position, dubbed Operation Lightning Thunder.
Since then, LRA attacks have killed 2,400 people and displaced 465,000, according to Resolve Uganda, a nonprofit group that monitors LRA activity. Another 3,400 people have been abducted.
Kony, who became a household name when a video about him went viral on the Internet this year, is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. He and his group are accused of killing and maiming villagers, abducting children and turning them into soldiers or sex slaves.
Madelaine Simbachalanio is considered one of the lucky ones.
She was abducted by LRA soldiers, but released into the forest once they reached their base camp, she said. Miraculously -- exhausted and terrified -- she made her way home. Many of those taken with her were never seen or heard from again.
Part of the difficulty in tracking Kony stems from the fact he can move freely across porous borders, and not all countries in the region have joined the chase, said Ugandan armed forces spokesman Col. Felix Kulayigye.
He believes Kony is shuffling between Sudan and the Central African Republic.
"This is the strategy that he has used for the last four to five years. When the pressure is too much here, he runs across the border because he knows we are not allowed to go after him," Kulayigye said. "Whenever pressure is high, he just switches to north Sudan. It hampers our operation."
But a spokesman for the Sudanese information ministry denied the allegation.
"This is completely incorrect," said Rabi Abd al-Ati. "We don't accommodate rebels from Uganda or elsewhere. ... The LRA has no existence in our areas."
Regardless of where Kony is, the hope is that the search to find him will not only lead to his capture, but also bring an end to the long, regional nightmare he unleashed.
Despite the presence of troops, some people in Obo say they are still too afraid to sleep in their beds.
They sleep in the yard, hiding in the undergrowth outside their houses, because they worry the LRA will come for them in the night.
Reclaiming peoples' lives from that fear is as much a part of the job as capturing Kony, said the Special Forces captain.
"I think this mission is a very worthwhile one, and it's going to bring stability to a region that has been without stability for a long time. If we can do anything to help reduce the atrocities, and make the locals feel safe, then, I think, it's definitely worthwhile," he said.
Journalist Isma'il Kushkush contributed to this report.
Remember the beautiful guy who was with Anderson on 'Anderson' back on March of this year, Jasson Russell? He later had a nervious breakdown and ran naked, screaming on the streets of San Diego. He's still as beautiful as ever.
