Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper is shameless & needy

Is Anderson Cooper the next Oprah? He launches his daytime talk show by showing off his body while getting a spray tan with Snooki. What explains his endless hunger for attention? Apparently money cannot fill the hole created by this neediness. (Thanks, Christophe).

Anderson Cooper’s boyfriend: a huge meat head?

Anderson Cooper's boyfriend: a meat head?

Is Benjamin (Antoine) Maisani really Anderson Cooper’s boyfriend? Gawker claims that this co-owner of East Village bar Eastern Bloc is the closeted CNN anchor’s boyfriend. I think Andie can do better than this extreme muscle queen, but maybe he has a rare mind underneath all that meat.

Thanks to Alexander Chee for passing on this breaking news!
