CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has found himself at the butt of many pole jokes thanks to the not-so-fancy footwork of an interior designer who accidentally took the shortcut between floors of Cooper's under construction firehouse conversion. While the Silver Fox has been busy straddling the precarious line between journalist and Haitian Earthquake Hero with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, he's been slapped with a lawsuit stating he's neglected the safety of his new 84 W. 3rd Street West Village home.

Cooper bought the former house of New York's bravest back in September for $4.3 million (down from its original $4.75 million).
