Cynne Simpson on Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show

You're used to seeing Cynne Simpson every morning on Good Morning Washington. On Friday, people got to see her nation-wide on Anderson Cooper's show.

Cynne was Anderson's guest co-host and she says she was excited from the moment she arrived.

She met with producers to talk about the day's guests. Then she went to “hair” and “makeup” and had a quick opportunity to meet the audience.

She had a quick chat with Anderson before the show.

Cynne says that with producers, directors and studio staff keeping everyone on their toes, the hour flew by.
