During Tuesday's New Year's Eve festivities on CNN, hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen offered a sweet tribute to Cooper's mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, bookended by an awkward opening transition and a risque anecdote.

It's Cooper's first holiday season without his mother, a fashion icon and socialite who died in June at the age of 95, and the news anchor also acknowledged viewers who are dealing with the loss of loved ones.

When exactly he did the social media purge isn't known. He also doesn't appear to have "liked" any of her recent posts on social media either.

The Vanderbilt conversation started abruptly. After the pair chatted about Cohen's son, Benjamin, being named People's "Cutest Baby Alive" and a funny video showed late-night host Conan O'Brien mocking Cooper's attempt at growing a beard, the camera shifted back to New York's Times Square where Cohen shifted the conversation as Cooper was still laughing.

"I want to send my condolences to you, of course. Your mom passed away this year," Cohen said.

Cooper seemed taken aback by the swift change in tone: "You're sending me condolences now!"

Cohen, a bit chagrined, replied: "I'm trying to think of a transition so I can bring it up. I don't know how to bring it up."

"I appreciate it. Thank you very much. Yes. Yeah," Cooper responded, as both briefly went quiet.

Andy Cohen missed his son's first word

  Andy Cohen missed his son's first word Benjamin Cohen said his first word, but his dad, Andy Cohen, wasn't there to see it.While speaking to Seth Meyers on "Watch What Happens Live," Andy Cohen revealed that his 10-month-old son, Benjamin, said his first word on Tuesday, but the proud dad missed it!

"Awkward moments!" Cohen then said loudly, as the two friends shifted into a loving remembrance of the CNN anchor's mother. "I loved your mom," Cohen said.

Cooper said Cohen was great with his mother and then transitioned into a ribald story about a time he prepped Vanderbilt to be interviewed by Cohen, advising he might ask her about anything. He said he was shocked when his mother wondered whether Cohen might ask about anatomical specifics of Hollywood leading men, although Cooper used a cruder term. (Later in the broadcast, after receiving a text from a friend regarding the comment, Cooper said, "Maybe I went too far.")

They brought up that story with Vanderbilt when Cohen, wearing a St. Louis Blues jersey and fresh from the team's Stanley Cup victory over the Boston Bruins, paid a visit to her during her final days in June.

"It's like he's conducting a game show with my mom. My mom said, 'I never said that,'" but she offered more details once Cohen persuaded her that she had, Cooper said, as both men laughed heartily at the shared memory.

At that point, the conversation shifted again, as Cooper related his situation to others going through the holidays for the first time without a family member. He also touched on the loss of his father, Wyatt Emory Cooper, who died on Jan. 5, 1978, when Anderson was just 10.

"Everybody loves the holidays and people are happy and it's great, but for a lot of people, holidays are really hard" after the loss of a loved one, he said. "For me, New Year's Eve has always been really hard. Honestly, it's why I started volunteering to work on New Year's Eve, because it made me sad every year because my dad died on Jan. 5 when I was 10 and it just reminds me so much of that moment."

Talking to the camera, he said: "There's a lot of folks watching tonight who are home, maybe they're alone, maybe they're hanging out with a loved one, maybe with their pet and watching us and I just want people to know I and Andy are thinking about everybody for whom tonight is difficult," he said. "It's not really talked about much. It makes people feel uncomfortable. It's probably awkward right now for my friend, Andy."

It will be the first time he's been able to spend Christmas with his daughters in three years, as he was locked up in prison for 41 months for fraud.

"No," Cohen chimed in. "I think it is important. It can be a very lonely night for people. And that's why we're here. We're all just hanging out and we'll all get through it together."

During an evening full of merriment and a program that occasionally veered into silliness, it was a short, sweet and moving moment.
