Anderson Cooper, the son of socialite and jeans designer Gloria Vanderbilt, said on Howard Stern's radio show Monday that his mother is leaving him "no trust fund." Gloria's estate is valued at around $200 million, according to Celebrity New Worth.

Anderson, who makes $11 million a year as a CNN anchor, doesn't need the money and he has no problem with his mother's decision.

"From the time I was growing up, if I felt that there was some pot of gold waiting for me, I don't know that I would've been so motivated," Anderson said. "[My mom] made more money on her own than she ever inherited. We believe in working."
