Cooper & Cohen: Surprised "a bunch of people...who are forward about other aspects of their lives" have not come out
Who do you think he's referring to?
On Watch What Happens Live, Cohen asked Cooper whether certain public figures should come out. Cooper said this,
"I mean look, it’s a personal decision that everyone has to make for their own reasons ... I’m pretty understanding of where people are at, and people are at different places in their lives. But there’s a bunch of people whom I’m surprised have not been more forward, and you know given their position and the extent to which they’re forward about other aspects about their lives."
(sorry, was this already posted? I was surprised I couldn't already find it on DL)
Who the fuck is Cooper to talk about public figures waiting to come out when his old ass didn't come out until last year???
God, he's been so fucking annoying and hypocritical ever since he came out. He refused to talk about it for 44 years and now he can't quit talking about it. Now he acts like Miss High and Mighty.
I think he was talking about Clooney.
So, I'm guessing Hollywood dudes who are regarded as particularly liberal figures and who Anderson knows relatively well.
James Franco could be one. Although I really think James Franco is so out there he wouldn't be gay. I went to grad school with him too and there were no substantiated rumors.
Clooney will be outed soon enough. You just wait!
I didn't see another thread about this.
As much as I like George Clooney, I think he should be outed. He's a big boy now, he should come out.
I think he was referring to people in the news business, like Robin Roberts.
And why can't Ryan Seacrest come out? He revolts me.
Yes, R2, AC needs to have [italic]several[/italic] seats.
Someone needs to get him drunk so he can spill the beans
I'm with r2.
[bold]Who the FUCK is he to say that?[/bold]
What an ass. He can go back into the closet for all I care.
Ryan Seacrest! They would know each other well from CNN, remember when Ryan was subbing for Larry King and shamelessly flirting with Anderson in the 'coming up' segment?
Would he really be on the verge of outing Robin Roberts after her life-saving bone marrow transplant?
Hey, he's talking about Simon, too... er, I mean he's talking about Simon, assholes!
He's right. They should.
I think he was talking about Sam Champion and Fox's Sam Shepard.
'people who are so OUT THERE in other aspects of their lives.'
hmmm. interesting. what does he mean by that and who is he referring to?
Yeah, yeah, it's Robin Roberts....for sure.
[quote]I think he was talking about Sam Champion and Fox's Sam Shepard.
Sam Champion is out and they showed his wedding on GMA. Keep up. Love Queens who are just so convinced some are gay. There is absolutely nothing Clooney could ever do to convince you he's straight. The best part is he doesn't give a shit if you think it.
Clooney can't convince anyone he's straight, because he's gay, R22. Get over yourself.
Why do so many people say Clooney is gay? Are there any stories or evidence to back up the claim? Unlike Seacrest, Franco, Cruise, Travolta, even Bradley Cooper, I have never heard anything substantiating this
Is there any concrete evidence to indicate that Clooney could be straight?
I didn't think so.
I cannot believe he said that.
He must be slightly retarded after all.
Robin Roberts isn't out?
I thought it was known she was a lesbian dating back to when she was part of the original ESPN Sunday NFL pregame show.
As for Seacrest, did anyone watch the E! pre-Oscars coverage and feel like Kelly Osborne was trying to out him.
There was some discussion of Ben Affleck's beard having its own twitter account and Kelly brought up some random comment about guys who have beards and at another point she was lamenting the people in Hollywood who have to hide who they are. Maybe I was reading too much into it but if Seacrest is closeted and E! wants him closeted then I would be pissed at Kelly if I was E!
He's not retarded, just a douche.
With Robin Roberts brush with mortality, I can't imagine she'll be able to continue life in the glass closet. I hope once she's regained her strength, she'll come out. People love her and for the most part, will be supportive.
Maybe he meant Dan Rather.
What a fucking douche. Up until very recently he was one who was "forward about other aspects of [his] life". In fact he blabbed about everything except his sexuality. Fuck him.
Holy Moly - I thought you were talking about Bradley Cooper... sheesh.
[quote]Fox's Sam Shepard.
Who? Wasn't Sam Shepard a famous murderer? (The one that "The Fugitive" was based on?)
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
