Carol Burnett’s Cheeky Birthday Wish

  • Comedy legend Carol Burnett, who turns 91 in April, humorously expressed her birthday wish to spend time with Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper.
  • Despite her playful wish, Burnett has been happily married to Brian Miller for over 20 years.

Carol Burnett, the legendary comedian, recently shared a playful wish for her upcoming 91st birthday. During an appearance on “Live with Kelly and Mark,” Burnett humorously stated that her birthday wish was to spend time with Hollywood heartthrob Bradley Cooper.

Mark Consuelos, the co-host of the show, recalled a previous podcast with Burnett. He said, “You know, I listened to the podcast. … I loved hearing your stories. And you said something very funny, that, ‘Is there’s something you wanted to do that you haven’t done yet before you turn 90?’ And you said, ‘George Clooney.’”

Kelly Ripa, the other host, asked Burnett if Clooney had ever taken her up on the offer. Burnett replied, “No, but now I’m thinking about Bradley Cooper.”

Ripa, eager to facilitate Burnett’s wish, said, “Everyone knows that this is the official morning show of Bradley Cooper. He loves this show. Brad? Give Carol a call, and you know which phone to use.”

To this, Burnett simply responded, “I love it.” Ripa added, “That would be a great coupling, I think.”

However, there’s a small hitch in Burnett’s playful birthday wish. She has been happily married to Brian Miller for over two decades. “I don’t think it’ll work with my husband,” Burnett quipped.

Mark Consuelos acknowledged the complication, stating, “There’s that complication,” before Ripa chimed in, “I always forget about that.”

Bradley Cooper, the Oscar-winning actor and father to daughter Lea, sparked relationship rumors with supermodel Gigi Hadid late last year. However, he has yet to confirm his romance with Hadid.

Carol Burnett is a revered figure in the television world. She made her mark with her own self-titled variety show on CBS in 1967, which aired for over a decade. “The Carol Burnett Show” earned the comedian 10 Emmy nominations and three wins, solidifying her status as a pioneering woman in a field dominated by men.


Burnett is also known for her signature move of tugging on her left ear at the end of her show, a symbolic gesture to let her grandmother know she was thinking of her.

    Carol, I like the reason you tug on your ear at the end of each show. I know now why you did it.
    I’m 73 years old now and when I close my eyes, I can still see you like it was yesterday. I thank you
    for all the wonderful memories. My life has been so full of grief that you have no idea of how much I
    shows like yours.

    Tank you,

    David Deel

    Carol’s show was great and she still has a fantastic sense of humor! Happy Birthday, Carol!
    I met a co-star from her show. Vicki Lawrence came to Mansfield, Oh, and we went to see her. It was a lot of fun, too.
