Gordon Parks And Gloria Vanderbilt
Last but not least, photographer and director Gordon Parks and jean maker and mother of Anderson Cooper, Gloria Vanderbilt, were an item for many years. While they started off romantically involved, according to reports, what the two had between them also developed into more of a very strong friendship. This bond stayed in tact until Parks passed in 2006. During their time together, Vanderbilt and Parks once spoke to the New York Timesabout their interracial relationship, and the anger it brought her family and confusion it created amongst people who knew Parks. Despite all that, they were down for one another no matter what. Awwwwwww.
