Cooper, with tongue firmly in cheek, relayed how absolutely wrong it was for Kardashian to have to take an x-ray of her derrierre in order to prove that it was in fact, all hers.

He joked, "Unbeknownst to me, the entire world will not stop with the cracks about her butt, its voracity, so to speak."

Cooper's best line: "Would she be willing to put the 'ass' back in classy?"
