**The Official Kathy Griffin, Anderson Cooper New Years Eve Thread**

I hope that Kathy says lots of inappropriate things, and that Anderson laughs so hard he pees his pants.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 49703/05/2013

Two hours of frau pandering.

Will Kathy nibble on Anderson's ear while he gently taps her away? Only to do it again ten minutes later?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 112/31/2011

Anderson's supposed to come out tonight according to an "insider" on another thread.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 212/31/2011

I hope he pees on camera and his boyfriend laps it up

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 312/31/2011

Is tonight NYE?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 412/31/2011

What time & station. Thanks

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 512/31/2011

No, it's always been an hour and a half.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 712/31/2011

Anderson was following this cute guy on Twitter for a minute then he took it down. I wonder why?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 812/31/2011

is Anderson gay?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 912/31/2011

No R9, he's straight and has been dating Kathy Griffin for the last 5 years or so.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1012/31/2011

I don't care if Anderson comes out or not, because I love him so much.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1112/31/2011

I really wish Kathy would do gay jokes and then wink at Anderson.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1212/31/2011

Trust me: Anderson is coming out tonight. Word is that he will do it in a low key way, like say, "My boyfriend is watching tonight" or something like that. You heard it here first.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1312/31/2011

Anderson is straight I tell ya. I know straight guys when I see 'em. Like when I look in the mirror.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1612/31/2011

My sister is at Times Square. Help me spot her.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1712/31/2011

Nice pic of AC and his partner.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1812/31/2011

I don't know why they wait until 11 pm to start the live show. It's not like anyone would be watching CNN tonight for real news, and the party at Times Square starts early (and they play footage of earlier celebrations around the world anyway). It's a fun show, but compressed.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 1912/31/2011

OMFG at R18's link.

Anderson looks TERRIFIED!

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 2012/31/2011

He looks like a senile old man in R18's link.

I thought R18 was giving us a pic of AC and his REAL partner.

Thanks for providing my last hearty laugh of 2011.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 2712/31/2011

Anyone else find Kathy exhausting on these things? She's so desperate to hog all the airtime she ends up spouting off a bunch of shit that isn't even funny. Lets see if she'll let Anderson get a word in edgewise tonight.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 2812/31/2011

WTF is this Green Goblin shit on the jumbotron?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 2912/31/2011

He'll watch TWO drop in another hour or so.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 3901/01/2012

Did Anderson come out tonight?

R35: ya mean Ben isn't working at Bedlam tonight? Like, what the fuck does that guy do with his time? massage his dick waiting for his suger daddy to get home?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4001/01/2012

I like them both, but not on this show. Not one funny joke. The only moment of truth when he asked if he looked uncomfortable when she tried to stick her tongue into his mouth. She really is sounding more desperate every day.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4101/01/2012

They want you to say something nasty to them.

So say it already!

Andy's BF is right there in front of him and Kathy

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4501/01/2012

R13, if he announces it in a lowkey way you don't think Kathy Griffin would be all over it? It would be the entire subject of the show.

No, if he announces, he'll do it under much more careful and controlled circumstances.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4601/01/2012

Where, r45? I can't see him!

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4701/01/2012

Ok, he didn't come out but I knew he wouldn't. And of course Ben was there, he had to kiss AC at midnight.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4801/01/2012

If Anderson kissed Ben at midnight could someone nearby have caught it on their cellphone?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 4901/01/2012

Yup, Kath and Ben and Andy and teh whole crew were taking a lot of pictures .

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5001/01/2012

Anyone willing to share?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5101/01/2012

So who saw AC and Ben kiss at midnight?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5201/01/2012

Would like to know more abouut the emails that Ryan Seacrest sent to Anderson earlier in the day. Kathy alluded to them and Anderson giggled, and in tit-for-tat fashion hinted to Kathy that if she went there he was going to drop dirt on some Piers Morgan vs. Kathy drama.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5301/01/2012

They didn't at midnight but shortly after, they had a chance.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5401/01/2012

You saw them kissing r54?

I want to know about the Seacrest email thing too.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5501/01/2012

no one saw a kiss, because there wasn't one.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5601/01/2012

Did anybody catch Candy Crowley interviewing Anderson and Kathy on Friday? I felt so bad for 'serious news' Candy and she really looked like she wasn't interested in giggling along with those two girls.

Then Anderson/Kathy were also interviewed for AC360 Friday night. That one wasn't as uncomfortable...but I can't remember who was hosting AC360 that night and asking the questions.

It was during one of those interviews that they mentioned having dinner with Ryan Seacrest at a dinner for NYE hosts. But no mention of which other program hosts would be in attendance.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5701/01/2012

I can't wait until Kathy tweets another one of their patented "snuggly" post-NYE photos.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5801/01/2012

He may have hooked up with that guy when he was in LA R8. It's funny how he stopped following him all of a sudden. I think Andy is on the prowl again.

I noticed the giggle fit Anderson had too R53 when Kathy mentioned the tweets between Ryan and him earlier in the day and we all know Ryan flirts with Anderson every chance he gets. I wonder if Anderson hit it he seems to like Ryan?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 5901/01/2012

Did Gary Tuchman and daughter run their 5K through Central Park? I recorded the CNN show and probably won't watch it until sometime tomorrow.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6101/01/2012

R61 Yes.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6201/01/2012

I loved the look of pure disgust on Anderson's face when Kathy was kissing him on the lips. I know it took everything he had in him to keep from shoving her off of him, he loves her, but that was too much. I did love when Kathy just came back from commercial with only her bra and panties on and AC's "are you friggin' kidding me?" reaction.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6301/01/2012

Candy hates promoting AC and KG because she HATES them. You know, I know and SHE knows they probably make fun of her fat ass every chance they get. Have also heard that Candy pees standing up.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6401/01/2012

Actually, Candy and Anderson get along fine and I believe they are friends. Candy may not feel so warmly towards Kathy though.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6501/01/2012

I usually LOVE Anderson and Kathy doing New Years, it is the highlight of the year for me. But this year, I wish I tuned out. There wasn't a single funny joke. Nothing alluding to Anderson's sexuality. A crazy scene with a green monster and Spiderman that I didn't understand. I didn't even see the usual spotlight of famous couples dancing after the ball dropped. And Kathy stripping down to her bra seemed desperate. I wish I watched Dick Clark instead.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6601/01/2012

I once saw Candy Crowley doing a live shot for CNN from Hollywood Boulevard. She was barking orders at the camera man, then looked at me, flicked her cigarette on the ground, and went live.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6701/01/2012

Twice Kathy asked him if he was ready for his special thing. The first time he didn't answer. The second time when he could have said, Happy New Year to Ben." he said " I'm not ready.".

It could have been anything. But I think he has no respect for Ben since he can't even say his name. He may be having great sex with him as some DLers claim, but he doesn't love the guy. He's ashamed of him.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6801/01/2012

The show must have been dull. I recall more comments in past years.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 6901/01/2012

The show was very good R69, maybe a little better than last year, but everyone's used to it by now and it's not as big a deal.

[quote]Twice Kathy asked him if he was ready for his special thing. The first time he didn't answer. The second time when he could have said, Happy New Year to Ben." he said " I'm not ready.".

I was wondering what she was saying to him. We'll never know if he was supposed to come out or say something about Ben, but I don't think he DIDN'T say anything because he doesn't love Ben, he just can't bring himself to talk about his feelings about him publicly. He can't do it. I thought it was funny when Kathy asked him when was the last time he had a one night stand and he paused and was thinking and nearly answered her. From his long pause, it seemed like it had to be a LONG time ago that he did something like that. He loves Ben.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7001/01/2012

Why fucking Nashville and not New Orleans or Chicago (though maybe the threat of severe cold might make that risky)?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7101/01/2012

I was flipping between CNN and FOX, and Bill Hemmer was MUCH more entertaining than Anderson Cooper.

When I watch Kathy and Anderson, it just seems like Kathy is always trying too hard to be funny, and Anderson just giggles at her lame jokes. He doesn't really add much to the conversation.

Bill, however, is unintentionally funny. He is TOTALLY buzzed. I mean, look at his eyes, and they look like he's stoned, and he's rambling and says to guests really ridiculous things like "I love you man!" and "Good job, bro!" It's so fucking embarassing!!

And at midnight, he wrapped his arms around Megan, and kept whispering in her ear, "good job. I love you. Good job." And she's like, "get the fuck off me!" It's hilarious.

CNN needs to re-hire Bill Hemmer, just so he can do the New Year's Eve thing. Funniest shit on television.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7201/01/2012

Id rather watch Don Lemon host this show in FULL drag.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7301/01/2012

You couldn't pay me to watch Hemmer or anyone on Fox. I'll never watch Hemmer again, he went over to the dark side and should be shunned. AC and Kathy all the way.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7401/01/2012

So what was happening at Bedlam last night? was Ben there working? or has he moved beyond work and is Anderson's toy now?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7501/01/2012

Kathy said Anderson's jeans were really tight. He's still trying to be young.

Ben is beyond being Anderson's "toy", not that he ever was. Bedlam had some kind of New Year's celebration, but Ben was supposed to be with AC and Kathy.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7601/01/2012

I'm with R74. I used to love Bill Hemmer, but haven't watched him even once since he moved to Fox.

I know there aren't that many anchor jobs available and his options were limited after being fired by CNN, but I just cannot watch Fox for even 15 seconds.

Even when it's a clip Jon Stewart replays to show their hypocrisy, I can barely sit through it.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7801/01/2012

R76: who really knows if Ben was there or not. Someone said they thought Anderson was going to come out last night and that didn't happen.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 7901/01/2012

R18 is amazing that any sighted person can think he's handsome. He's one nosebleed away from officially being albino.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 8001/01/2012

"I know it took everything he had in him to keep from shoving her off of him."

That shit gets done everytime they're together. If he was truly disgusted, he would have told her privately to knock the crap off a long time ago. He allows it because it brings ratings amd the straight women can wet their panties watching the hunk get kissed at home.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 8101/01/2012

Who was responsible for that 1950-style promo of that green goblin? WTF was that? It's the equivalent of Little Orphin Annie and Ovaltine.

R13 was right. He did it in such a low key way that it went unnoticed by all of us.

You're so silly. Anderson will never come out.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 8701/01/2012

I not surprised about Candy acting like that, r67

She seems like a bitch on wheels.

Sadly, Kathy is looking more like a man than Chaz.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 8801/01/2012

Not surprising, R88. The "real" journalists at CNN have no love for Andy.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 8901/01/2012

No surprise there - he probably makes much more than they do, but his ratings are absolutely nothing to shout home about.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9001/01/2012

OH MY!

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9101/01/2012

[quote]The "real" journalists at CNN have no love for Andy.

And who exactly are these "real" journalists? Looks to me that he has friendly relationships with everyone who appears on his show and that includes Candy Crowley.

[quote]If he was truly disgusted, he would have told her privately to knock the crap off a long time ago.

She never kissed him directly on the LIPS before and that's what disgusted him. He usually manages to turn away before she gets to that point, but she forced herself on him.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9201/01/2012

Oh shut up 92.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9301/01/2012

I agree, R93 - shut up, 92. They're on TV, they ALL "look" friendly. (Is that how you think journalists are supposed to look?)

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9401/01/2012

I used to LOVE her. I cannot explain why, I cannot handle get anymore. It's not even the tired routine. She just makes me nauseous

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9501/01/2012

Anderson and Kathy's New Year's Show beat Fox's show with Hemmer in the ratings. I'm not surprised, they were great.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9601/02/2012

Is Ac going to continue acting like he's a 44 recluse that doesn't socialize and doesn't that this year too? This charade is so old...

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9701/02/2012

and doesn't date....?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9801/02/2012

He's never going to be comfortable enough to talk about that part of his life. He rarely has relationships as a topic on his daytime show, most of his shows are "inspirational" or mommy issues, kid issues or saving money, but he avoids anything having to do with relationships or same sex issues in general because it might lead to someone asking him about his own life with Ben and he can't have THAT. He will bring his mother on countless times but he won't admit that he's in a relationship or DATING at all. He deliberately avoids these subjects.

On the New Year's show the other night, Kathy said she "makes a lot of money telling dick jokes" and nobody seemed to catch it or notice it, which was kind of funny. Anderson heard her but wasn't upset about it.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 9901/02/2012

He may be wealthy but he's treating himself much like a second class citizen the way he publicly ignores himself being gay. He can have countless guest or stories about straight love but he feels he can;'t talk about his? He may not mind because he's extremely wealthy but his silence is saying, "i'm gay and because of it, I must remain silent in public about it."

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 10001/02/2012

I hate when he fawns over straight couples! There would be nothing wrong with him treating a same sex couple to the kind of gifts and prizes that he's lavished on the straights.

AC was acting crazy last night during CNN's caucus coverage. They all were. By the time the night was over, they'd turned into CNN After Dark, AC was seducing the camera and dissing the latest CNN election gadgets and they started playing Barry White. It was insane.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 10401/04/2012

The were acting crazy over at Fox, too.

Of course, that's nothing new.

MSNBC had a second panel come on. They were too fresh to be crazy.

(which is stupid because there will be a new thread for the 2013 event, but whatever)

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 10812/27/2012

Good point r108. It'll be interesting to see if the broadcast loses some of the fun since we won't be wondering how close they come to crossing that 'outing' line.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 10912/27/2012

She'll find some other angle to get to him, he doesn't like talking about who he finds attractive, she'll probably tease him with stuff like that.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 11012/27/2012

I think she'll be raunchy inappropriate and he'll giggle

no one thought they were dating... I like Kathy, but let's face it, she's always acted like a fag hag

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 11112/27/2012

Kathy says she's not going to make a big deal of him being out. That's not going to be fun.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 11312/28/2012

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 13801/01/2013

Ben's appearance on the left side of the tv screen at the show's conclusion was about as accidental as a space shuttle launch.

He was rather underwhelming looking on tv.

Most disappointing is the realization that 2 and 1/2 hours of Anderson and Kathy was about 90 minutes too much.

Well since Ben was shown on screen last night standing beside the podium where Anderson and Kathy were, maybe now people will believe that they're still together and quit with the assumptions.

BTW weren't any dlers at Bedlam last night? Surely Ben and Anderson showed up there at some point.

And what's with Kathy making like she was trying to give Andy a blow job last night? She is off her rocker and his reputation is getting more and more damaged every time he does one of these events with the likes of her. I was reading the tweets this morning and the majority thought it was way over the top. I used to think it was funny but it has become a little too crude for prime time (yes many kids do stay up till midnight on New Years).

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 14701/01/2013

Kathy put Anderson in an awkward position (figuratively and literally)every time she squatted down to give a pretend bj. He did the only thing he could do barring yelling at her to knock it off by squatting down with her.

I thought she looked great, btw. I think Della is correct she has had a redo on her face.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 14801/01/2013

Kathy kissed Anderson's crotch, and The Drudge Report is not happy that!

Kathy must be trying to pass for Chinese, because that's the only explanation I can find for her HIDEOUS botched eye job.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 15001/01/2013

Ugh, NO ONE wanted to see that. She is disgusting and not funny, and Anderson is an idiot for playing along with her.

Anderson loves women who love him.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 15201/01/2013

even Anderson was uncomfortable with the whole thing. What gay guy wants some middle aged woman trying to go down on him on live t.v.? Seriously Kathy? She needs to find a new angle. I'd be surprised if they're still friends after this one.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 15401/01/2013

I thought it was the best broadcast they've done. Kathy was still very annoying. Yet Anderson was relaxed and articulate. In past years, he was stiff and stumbled to form words. I think coming out has freed him to be himself. I saw Ben too. I was happy. Happy to see they are still together. I hope they had great sex that night.

Kathy ties too hard to be the fag-hag-uber-alles, but is there even a need for that role anymore in 2013? Both she and Anderson seem trapped in a weird "Single Man" era media relationship.

Really R183, how would you be privy to that kind of info and the same goes for R184. Five years is a LTR for most people. Janet Jackson's only been with her bf 2 years and they're already engaged.

Yes, Ben looked HAPPY on NYE, he was laughing and smiling. As far as the ratings of the NYE show go, where are the cable ratings? No one expects K&AC to outrank the broadcast networks, that never happens, but they usually do pretty well against their cable competitor, Fox.

Here's the pic Ben posted from their undisclosed location. Sounds like one of his friends is vacationing in the same area.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 19201/03/2013

Did anyone notice that Ben and Anderson both posted almost identical photos of Times Square at midnight on New Years? Maybe that was Ben's way of telling people he was there with his love (that's if they didn't see him on screen beside the platform with Anderson and Kathy).

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 19301/03/2013

I noticed that R193 and I also think it's possible that Ben's making these appearances because at some point AC might introduce him and acknowledge him publicly has his partner. Maybe it's a gradual build up because Ben was on his daytime show in the audience a couple of weeks ago and he stayed onscreen for a few moments on NYE, maybe it's a deliberate move for them.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 19401/03/2013

maybe R194. Maybe they're planning on getting married and it would be weird to suddenly marry someone that most people don't even know exists. So they need to be seen more often in public together and then, yes, maybe AC will have him on the daytime show and introduce him before the show ends its run.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 19501/03/2013

Kathy going on her knees in on AC was going too far. I like kathy sometimes but that was embarassing and not that funny. Ben looked happy, but I notice AC wasn't paying him much attention. Good to see them together right doing the start of new yer though.

R197 I think Ben is in his late 30's. I would hardly call Anderson a Sugar Daddy. A Sugar Daddy would be someone at least 20 years older. Why is it so hard to believe that someone would want Anderson for reasons other than money? He's very cute and successful and has good manners :) I would take him even if he were poor.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 20001/03/2013

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 20101/03/2013

R201 I'm sure he is happy to have all that. But let's face it, no relationship is perfect. What looks perfect, often isn't. Relationships are tough. And these two have to deal with the gossip, paparazzi and probably a lot of guys trying to break them up so they can have a piece of the action. Just search Anderson Cooper on Twitter and see all the tweets saying they want to do Anderson. That can't be easy for Ben, although it probably makes him feel pretty lucky to be the one who has him.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 20201/03/2013

I guess she was trying to be funny, but I thought Kathy Griffin's behavior was pathetic and embarrassing. She got down on her knees as if to fellate him, for God's sake! Did she actually manage to kiss his crotch? I think I heard she did. Maybe Anderson Cooper goes along with this crap in order to pull in ratings, but it does seem to me that he doesn't much like a not very attractive middle-aged woman pawing him and making as if to french kiss him or suck his dick.

I'm not surprised by the high ratings R205, I wouldn't watch any other NYE show, in spite of all the bellyaching about Kathy here and in other areas, most people like them both and will continue to tune into their show.

Today's anderson live is pretty funny. AC was doing a segament on "What women want" in relationships and Terrence shouts "Since when did you know what women want Anderson?" The whole crowd laughed so did AC. AC explained that when he was 12 or 13 a girl thought they were "dating" and he listended to her. LOL It was classic stuff.

Also I guess I don't blame him but he is obsessed with flu. Watching his show has made me paranoid im going to get it.

I saw that segment too, and I loved it! Yet another nail in the coffin that AC was ever even remotely attracted to women. He said that the only reason he was spending any time with those girls when he was 12 was because he was interested in their brothers, lol! He said he had no idea those girls thought they were dating because nothing sexual happened, not even kissing, and that all they did was talk and listen. If he knew at age 12 that he was only attracted to guys, then he definitely is a gay pure blood. I say, good for him!

He should get Terrance to co-host - they are funny together - they are both sarcastic and bitchy. AC rarely does shows about relationships so I was glad to see him having this discussion.

R239 Seriously? Terence co-host? He has way too much face time for a producer. He is annoying and seems to be looking for attention now that the show's not been renewed and he'll be out of a job. Then again, in my opinion, he's the one who killed it. Once he came on as EP it became the TLC promotional hour. Terence is the one with ties to TLC. Now it's Terence's friends for co-hosts as often as he can get away with it and airtime for Terence's dog in clothes.

While I enjoy Anderson and his sense of humor and sometimes odd interests, this is not the talk show Anderson described when the show was announced. Too bad Terence ever was brought on board.

I felt bad for Chris Coffer today. I like him and his segment was short and like an after thought. He was the only intelligent guest today and he got the least amount of time. Need I say more?

But you see, it DIDN'T fall flat at all. Maybe for you personally, yes, but the majority of comments I've seen about the NYE show were positive and most people seem to get a lot of laughs out of it and the ratings were good. What people like seeing is Kathy making AC uncomfortable, get him giggling and maybe saying the wrong thing. It's not old, it's still working or else the ratings would've been lousy, they weren't.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 24201/15/2013

I hate to say it but R241 is right. It's become all about reality shows/stars and has become way too gay for daytime t.v. The gay community may like that but it's too much for the audience that is supposed to be watching: housewives. I think it's hilarious sometimes. Some of the things that come out of Anderson's mouth are so unexpected and funny but for a "serious" news anchor it's going a little far. Maybe that's just because it's been canceled and he's said fuck it I don't give a shit anymore. Very possible. But it's still going to affect his "brand" I suppose. I still think the show is good but it's not up there with Ellen that's for sure.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 24301/15/2013

I don't mind Terrance breaking in on the show with a comment or two, I think he's funny with AC, but I don't like all the TLC or Bravo promos/guests on the show. Anderson actually did say that the show would focus on his interests and reality TV was a part of that - he used to talk a lot about reality TV even when he'd co-host with Kelly Ripa, so he's into it but I wish they'd go outside the box a little bit more. What I do like is what R243 alludes to about Anderson being funny and saying things that you wouldn't expect him to say. I like seeing his other side and I can still respect what he does on CNN at night.

Anyone know anything about this? Does Ben have a sister? And "on/off byfriend" - I thought they were pretty steady. Ben was with Anderson in Times Square on NYE, but then so was Pablo. I don't think Ben was with Anderson in Hawaii or LA this past weekend though. There was a tweet about "the man that has kissed Anderson Cooper" being at Bedlam Saturday night, unless that tweet was talking about someone other than Ben, I guess.

Anyone know anything?

R246 - The boss doesn't necessarily have to live in the same state - could be in NYC or even France. And sometimes people date people in other states - so I wouldn't rule it out, based on that.

Haven't other people thought Ben looked Latino or am I mistaken? Or for all we know, I guess they could have an open relationship and Anderson has someone on the side, too?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25001/17/2013

Today's daytime show was very busy. AC and his staff act like the season is cancelled after this season. Shows I believe stop being taped by end of march. Ac is looking a bit thinner so many he can used to this to buff up like 2007-2011 now he will have more time to workout.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25101/17/2013

There aren't any "why doesn't AC have any black co-host on his show" R250. It's all in your head.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25201/17/2013

And by the way R241maybe folks will start watching the show again if Terrance was host. I know I would.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25301/17/2013

R252 starting on page 20 of the thread I've attached there was plenty of talk about Anderson not having enough black co-hosts on his show. Check it out.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25401/17/2013

R253 After watching today I think you are out of luck. Anderson was clearly annoyed with Terence butting it to the conversation as he told him today he didn't know what he was talking about and they needed to "cut his mic".... Terence response expression was that of a 2 year old. Need I say more?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25501/17/2013

AC was just joking and being snarky like he always is with Terrence. Don't think they won't be play fighting again. Terrence was still talking later in the show. I love when they fight.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25601/17/2013

Terence may have his haters, but apparently some people want MORE of his and AC's banter. Some are calling for him to co-host. I like the idea myself.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25701/18/2013

R257 So apparently these people care nothing about Anderson's journalistic integrity. Bitchy queen won't fly for a journalist on CBS or CNN.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25801/18/2013

Some of us recognize that he can do both things and respect him for that. If CBS or CNN didn't like what he was doing, they'd fire him. He's still on both networks after having done the talkshow for 2 seasons.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 25901/18/2013

R259 - But he hasn't played the bitchy queen role much - it's just starting to come out when Terence goats him into it. I think Anderson is realizing it as there wasn't much interaction between them today - just Terence trying to make him look stupid with the "bangs" picture.

Anderson's currently under contract with CNN and CBS and the talk show hasn't been renewed. If he were to get a new talk show with Terence as co-host, I'm guessing there would be no contract negotiations at CNN or CBS when his contract is up at the end of this year.

In all of Anderson's recent interviews he rarely, if ever, mentions the talk show, but he does talk about his reporting for CNN and CBS. He did no promotion for the talk show's new season over the summer and little to none when the new season started. I think it's safe to say Anderson is over the talk show and realizes now that it was probably a mistake.

He may have a few vocal fans that would like he and Terence to co-host a talk show and Terence is pushing the idea on his Twitter feed, but I don't think the audience for bitchy queens on a daily basis would be a fraction of his current talk show audience and we know where those numbers got him - canceled.

I will miss Anderson's lighter side that we see glimpses of on the talk show, I won't miss Terence or his dog in clothes pushed on the audience.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26001/18/2013

Well I hope it works out that AC and Terence can get together because I would LOVE it, even if it only last for one season.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26101/18/2013

R261 - The big question is is it something Anderson wants? Unless he wants it, it's not going to happen and I haven't seen him promoting the idea - just Terence.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26201/18/2013

We'll see. He wanted his daytime show to work and I think he would've liked it to continue. He might want another opportunity to try again. If not, fine, but I hope he's into it.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26301/18/2013

Is there another thread somewhere because nothing is being used on here anymore since the 18th.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26401/25/2013

Oh that makes sense... R265 I bet it will be fantastic.

Toaday's show Terrence showed he went to get botox which of course AC refused to go too. Seems like according to doctor AC needs alot of work done. He is kinda wrinkly. I think he may look younger if he got at least his hair dyed. he's 45 and looks 10 to 20 years older.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26601/25/2013

If the link works, check out this picture. If he looks "10-20" years older (which I strongly disagree) it's a HOT 10-20 years older. He has good skin and from the looks of it, he's not wearing studio make-up, he was out at an event. He looks fine for his age and doesn't need work.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26701/25/2013

Anyone who recommends Botox for a man needs to have his head examined. Given Terrence's plastic-looking face, I don't think Anderson has anything to worry about when it comes to who's the better looking of the two.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26801/25/2013

Thank you R268.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 26901/25/2013

Anyone else thinks that Terence is angling for a show of his own since Anderson Live wasn't re-newed? He's on pretty much daily, now. He has neither the face or voice for television and he's a two note topic - Botox or dressing up his tiny dog in clothes.

I've never seen another EP of a show with so much face time - most are rarely is ever seen/heard. It's pretty much unprofessional, IMO. This week Anderson has really started snarking back - I think he's had it. Guess Terence didn't get the memo that when he was brought in to make the show a success and he tanked it.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 27001/25/2013

Gelman on R&K, if he's still on used to do a lot of talking. But I do think Terence is out for himself. I don't mind him messing with AC so much because I like to see how AC will react, but I sense Anderson's become fed up with him or maybe we are reading too much into their little battles. Anyway, it's kind of obvious that Terence is angling for a show of his own or maybe even a show he and AC can do.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 27101/25/2013

R271 I think Anderson is over daytime for now. He's putting in his time through the end of March and that's about it. He just stated on today's show that he's not going to hang out with Terence on the weekends, so I don't see AC signing up to do another show with Terence as much as Terence may want one. I do see Terence angling for a show of his own, now he's losing this job and he left Dr. Oz to take this job.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 27201/25/2013

Maybe he's had his fill of it, but I have a feeling he'd want to try it again to do it in a better way.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 27301/25/2013

R273 I could see that as I don't think he got to do the talk show he wanted to do, the one he initially described pre-production. I think his staff failed him big time as they were too young and/or too inexperienced. He needed a Gellman or a Bill Getty to guide and mentor him since he was new to daytime himself. Sadly, that's not what he got.

How much of the firehouse did you get to see R280 and was the crowd just mainly those arty/club types Ben hangs with? How many people looked to be there? And the most important question of all, did you see AC and Ben kiss?!

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 28301/29/2013

all 5 floors. there was a list at door. apparently all have very open relationships. saw no kissing but at times were affectionate. the guys were mostly chelsea types with tight t-shirts and well groomed facial hair. about 100 people, it was a good time. hard to give details because i don't know them; i was a guest of someone who is close with them.

Is there a basement or are all five floors above ground? Are you counting the roof garden as one of the floors?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 29601/30/2013

correct- there's a basement and rooftop. the party was mostly in the kitchen/dining area with a big lounge living room, old school record player, tiled walls with original firehouse fixtures. there are different textured walls, some red and some grey. brick walled wine cellar with beautiful hanging pendants, tons of cool bottles, books and wall art, bistro style tables for small groups to huddle. he had a video booth like the one on his show and everyone took pictures all night. andy cohen was hogging up the camera (of course). i did not go into his bedroom or bathroom. everyone was very discreet and for the most part very respectful and friendly.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 29701/30/2013

By the way, I'm surprised we haven't heard in a really long time from the angry nut who's always saying that AC and Ben are on the verge of breaking up. Usually, we can't have an AC thread without her swearing that there's trouble in paradise, that their relationship is on the rocks, that one is cheating on the other, etc...

Anderson also mentioned tonight that he gets a lot of nutty correspondence that doesn't make it to him but is instead intercepted by CNN security. I have a feeling people like R310/r311 are probably among those who send AC crazy stuff.

Fugitive ex-cop sent parcel to CNN, Anderson Cooper tweets

February 7, 2013 | 4:08 pm

CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper said via Twitter on Thursday that he received a parcel from the former Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with a series of shootings that have left three people dead and two wounded.

Cooper shared the news on the social media website around 3 p.m.

“Learned today suspect Christopher Dorner sent me a parcel at CNN,” Cooper tweeted. “Inside was a note, DVD, and a coin shot thru with bullet holes.”

Cooper did not immediately release any additional information.

That fugitive apparently sent those packages to a few news folks.

Today's daytime show was so weird but kinda fun. Anderson had some Freakshow family on... a daughter swallowing fire. A guy swallowing a round metal object then taking a sword and jamming in in his mouth to get the ball back... it was creepy. Too creepy by the point a woman came out to swallow a lightbulb I turned it off. Then AC said he liked this teddy bears that were so CREEPY. Lik evil teddy bears and some were bleeding and brains exposed it was gross!

AC seeing some many sick things out on the field all those years have defintely screwed up his mind. Seeing dead bodies, and people being killed has turned him to a person who get's off on these weird stuff I think. I'm not sure if i'd want to hang out with AC now lol. Too much for me.

R326 It seems like the last couple of years they've been on group vacations or Ben's tagged along when AC traveled for 60 Minutes.

The person that attended Ben's birthday party said either AC wasn't into sex or was getting some somewhere else and that they weren't as exclusive as most want them to be. It's not like it would be uncommon for both of them to have side pieces and I think it's been established Ben has one or more.

They could be dating R328.

I think the party spy ended up agreeing with a commenter who said that AC and Ben are secure in their relationship and don't have to be all over each other 24/7. That could also mean secure enough to have an open relationship but I just don't think they do.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 32902/16/2013

R329 Think what you want. I think the "party spy" realized he wasn't saying what some here wanted to hear/think - so he just quit trying and agreed.

Reading between the lines and having attended enough parties, I'm guessing Ben and others were "entertaining" each other in some of the bedrooms in a very discreet sort of way and Anderson was busy playing host. The person said they were obviously a couple - doesn't mean their relationship isn't open and they don't both enjoy a little something on the side. Or maybe Ben wants more sex in his life and Anderson is okay with that. Whatever their agreement is, it's theirs and as long as it works for them, it's nobody else's business.

That's a big assumption you're making here. Nothing in the party spy's comments suggested that anything like what you're describing was going on. Personally, I don't really care either way, but I think it's interesting that you believe that "the "party spy" realized he wasn't saying what some here wanted to hear/think - so he just quit trying and agreed."

When the "party spy" (your words) said they didn't go the bedroom, but people were being discrete - that often means that people are sneaking off for a bit in pairs, but maybe you haven't been to a party where that's happened before.

I wonder if they'll post pics of their trip. AC generally doesn't post vacation pics unless he's on one of those work/trip things. Ben, Andy or Pablo might post a pic from Brazil.

AC has really given up on the daytime show and is just saying anything. Terence was telling the guest to stop using the word "penis" and AC just blurted out ANOTHER bleeped word for it and the audience cracked up. I think that's his REAL personality, kind of wild and not so buttoned up.

One of the Carnival parades was last night - not sure why it was after official Carnival had passed, but it was. Here's a write up and a picture of Anderson. Andy Cohen is to the right, but no one else that I recognize in the background.

I thought Ben would have posted a picture to his Instagram page by now. He has when they've been to the Madonna concerts - NYC and Paris, in Portugal, to see Roger Waters, in Botswana, etc. Did Ben maybe not make this trip? Too busy with the new bar? Just curious if anyone knows anything since the Twitter sighting just said Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen on Friday night.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 34902/17/2013

Sometimes people don't recognize Ben or don't know that he's AC's bf. He might be there, I guess if Pablo's there, Ben's there - but yes, he might be busy dealing with the bar. It's just hard to see AC going to Brazil without his main squeeze. Meanwhile AC's been taking lots of pics with Brazilian fans.

Yeah, I think Ben took the pic. Pablo doesn't look very nice, meaning he looks mean. On the Bedlam Yelp sight there are some complaints that one of the owners was rude and abusive and it's probably Pablo.

Pablo is always on vacation with AC/Ben/Andy Cohen. I think Andy Cohen is dating Pablo.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 35602/18/2013

R 356 Andy wasn't with Pablo, Ben and AC in Utah last fall - he was in LI at the time. Nor was Pablo in Paris with them last summer or on the yacht vacation last summer. I think it's a stretch that Pablo is dating Andy. When Pablo was with at the Madonna concert in NYC, Andy was on WWHL.

Not sure why people think Ben doesn't like to have his picture taken when he's posed with AC and Fergie, with AC's crew in Haiti, and a few other photos. I find it odd that Ben wouldn't be in that picture if he's in Rio. It's not like a group picture would confirm anything more than any of the other pictures that already exist of he and Anderson. Not saying he's not in Rio, just not buy the fact that he's not in the picture because he doesn't like to have his picture taken.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 35702/18/2013

Just because Ben has been photographed in the past on a few occasions with Anderson while abroad doesn´t mean that he´ll always do so, R357. In general, Ben is pretty low-key and doesn´t seem to seek the spotlight, as others have observed. For example, apart from those pics with Anderson´s CNN crew taken at a club in Haiti, I don´t remember seeing a single pic taken during any of the many vacations he and AC have taken where he willingly posed. Also, none of the pics on his Instagrams show him (which is pretty refreshing when compared to how most gay men use Instagram as a monument to their ego by posting self portrait after self portrait). I remember on article on Queerty when a bunch of famous people(Kelly Ripa and NPH among them) were photographed hanging out at Bedlam with Ben, and the writer specifically mentioned that he refused to have his pic taken. So yes R357, there´s some validity to the argument that Ben doesn´t care for having his pic taken, especially if he knows it´s going to end up on somebody else´s Instagram.

I think there´s a good chance that R355 is right and that Ben took that picture.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 35802/18/2013

R358 While Ben may not have posed with Anderson a lot, he's certainly been photographed with him on a lot of occasions. And in the past when they've traveled together, Ben has posted pics from there local or concerts, inside the firehouse, etc. It's not like he seems to not want it known he's dating Anderson. I find it odd that he didn't post a pic from the parade, the beach, with Pablo and their friends from Rio - the fact that no one mentions him and he hasn't posted any photos, just makes me wonder what's going on. It's certainly different than past vacations, especially since Anderson came out.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 35902/18/2013

It just doesn't make sense that AC would take his vacation without Ben, he must be there but just avoiding the camera by being the one who's taking the pics.

I notice that Andy Cohen and AC are just wearing regular T-shirts on the pic @R353 and the other guys are wearing those sexier styles. If Ben's there, you KNOW he's wearing the sexy t-shirt but AC and AC can't be seen looking too provocative since they are respectable TV gentlemen.

This Brazilian columnist seems to be implying that AC had and affair or hook-up with some guy in Ipanema.

[quote]Before enjoying the parade of samba schools of Rio Carnival champions a box of Sapucaí, CNN journalist Anderson Cooper circled the edge of Ipanema, in the south zone of Rio, on Saturday afternoon, without being noticed. The presenter strolled the boardwalk, wearing shorts and T-shirt, along with a beautiful dark healed, he was shirtless, and looked more like a tourist in the hot sun of the city. Cooper is openly gay and reportedly was a dalliance with a resident of Rio.

We know he loves those Latin men, unless someone has mistaken Ben for a resident of Rio.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 37402/19/2013

Looks like Pablo and some of the group have left Rio for another Brazil location. Not sure if Anderson and Andy are with or other guy in that group pic and his friend who are also from NYC.

What happened to all the people on here who claimed to be "in the know" and go to Bedlam? Is Ben in NYC working on the new bar, something amiss between he and Anderson or is he in Brazil with the group?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 37502/19/2013

Someone on another site is saying that AC is having a fling with one of those dudes in the pic with Andy Cohen/Pablo. They say the dude is the same one who was pictured having breakfast with AC a while back. AC and Ben may have an arrangement.

Ben is in Brazil with AC but he's staying out of all the pics. I'm surprised no one has caught him.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 37702/20/2013

R377 The big question is how does Page Six know Ben is with. They interviewed the Brazilian Press about the shirts AC and Andy were wearing in the photos and AC's rep about him endorsing the brand.

Page Six was always about trying to out Anderson before he was out, and now it sounds like they are trying to paint the picture of him as a big party person/drinker - lewd and debauched. And why not add the gay boyfriend who is part owner of two gay bars into the story to enhance it and make it sound more damning?

I'm not saying Ben isn't with -just not saying I believe everything Page Six prints. It's gossip and rumors mostly and sometimes they are right and sometimes they are wrong. Time will tell.

R378/380 you do have a point about the Post and its history of unreliability. But it's possible that the Brazilian press mistook Ben for a local - I think he could pass for Latin. I guess we'll get a definitive answer at some point. Ben hasn't posted any pics on Instagram yet as far as I know.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 38102/20/2013

Could the guy Ben was kissing in those controversial "cheating" pics last August be Josh Wood? In a way, it looks like him and he and Ben are obviously close. But I don't know, maybe Josh is straight!

R380: why would Ben have a problem with Anderson hooking up with other men? Anderson's the one with the money, the one with control. Ben complies, he wants to hang on to his money machine.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 38302/20/2013

R378 seems really determined to argue that Ben isn´t in Rio when all signs point to him being there. Why would Anderson take Ben´s business partner Pablo on a trip if Ben wasn´t on that vacation? And now we have confirmation that Ben is in Rio with Anderson from Page Six, but still that´s not enough for R378. As R361 observed, Ben has often been shown to be part of a trip after many of us believed he wasn´t there. Some people on DL are just not willing to accept the simple fact that Ben is part of this trip too.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 38402/20/2013

R384 - Did you read my whole post? I said I'm not saying Ben isn't there, just wonder how PageSix knows, when the article seems to be all about the shirt Anderson was wearing and the beer brand. Ben may very well be along, I just don't believe everything PageSix prints.

I found it odd they didn't mention Ben was seen wearing the shirt when they mentioned Anderson and Andy Cohen were seen wearing them. Since it was required attire for the box - wouldn't Ben have been wearing the shirt too or was he not in the box with the rest of the group? My personal belief is that Page Six saw the group picture, wanted to make a big deal out of the shirt and just assumed Ben was with or added that he was to further make the point that gay Anderson is partying with his gay boyfriend (which he won't mention) who is part owner of two gay bars. It's the type of smear crap PageSix likes to do and every chance they get with Anderson. They did the same type of stuff before he came out. They knew the shirt was required - all you had to do is look at the photos posted and everyone there is wearing the shirt, men, women, gay, straight. It's just PageSix being PageSix.

R382 Josh Wood is a gay party promoter. He's more well known in NYC than Ben and I'm sure had it been him, the media would have identified him vs. wondering who the "mystery" man was. Last I saw Josh had a steady partner. I'm guessing Ben met him through bar promotions when he was bartending and then opened EB and later Bedlam.

Someone on the another site is saying Leo Neves wasn't in Rio when Anderson was there because of a photo Pablo posted and comments on the photo. Leo is in the group photo at the parade, one of the Rio papers that interviewed Anderson said he was there visiting friends, among them Leo Neves. It seems from Pablo's picture (he identified the location) they have left Rio for a quieter beach area farther North in Brazil.

I'm sure photos will appear of Anderson and Ben in LA this weekend for the Oscars.

R385, I can´t imagine why Anderson would go on a vacation with Ben´s business partner Pablo unless Ben himself was also on that trip. So it stands to reason than Ben is in Brazil, as Page Six confirmed. I don´t understand why you´re so keen on splitting hair here.

R392 Here's the link to the photo Pablo posted from Trancoso. Andy Cohen tweeted a link to a picture of himself on what looks like the same beach today. Pablo is gay, too. All the guys in that group photo from the parade are gay.

As far as the Daily Mail, they are like the National Enguirer and just enhancing what PageSix posted earlier, along with other pictures already posted on the Internet. Neither have a source in Rio that they even hinted at and again no picture that shows Ben even in the background. Not saying he's not there, just not saying because PageSix mentioned it, that it's been confirmed. Both are gossip/rumor sites and nothing more.

Ben obviously posed with Anderson in the Vanity Fair photo booth last year, nice picture by the way, so I don't see why he wouldn't have posed at the parade in the group of friends picture.

I'm also curious why Ben has only tweeted (a retweet) to the Bedlam Twitter feed once in over two weeks. He's typically promoting events at the bar several times a week. Also, he hasn't posted a photo to his Instagram page since just after the first of the year - not even anything from the bar. I just find that odd that he seems to have quit promoting Bedlam via social media. Anyone know anything about that?

Most of the time Ben's around when we least expect it. Probably just best to assume he's always around. For whatever reason he didn't post pics or has some kind of private account.

Just found it odd he didn't pose for a photo with the group and wasn't posting to Bedlam's social media accounts at all lately. I still think PageSix was guessing as they always try painting Anderson in the worst possible light. I just don't take gossip sites as proof of anything as they are more often wrong than they are right.

If you think I have a problem with Anderson and Ben being together, you are mistaken. I even posted the link to the Vanity Fair picture yesterday. Not sure where you got the idea that I have a problem with Anderson and Ben as a couple.

Anyway today's show was kinda funny too. Have to say I think the daytime show format has hurt AC's reporting/anchor cred but he's shown he's alittle bit more human over the pass few month's of this new Live format. It's kinda refreshing.

R409, I found it strange that some people (including you) were so keen on claiming that there was no evidence that Ben was in Brazil with Anderson considering the fact that his business partner Pablo was there. Why would Anderson go on vacation with Pablo without Ben? I asked you about this several times and you never provided an answer. Instead you kept saying that you found it odd that Ben didn´t pose with the group, or that his Bedlam account has been quiet lately. Well, now we have photographic evidence that Ben is in Brazil, so I guess it shows that sometimes, even though Ben may not pose for a group pic (he was probably the person who took that photo in the first place), or he may not be all that active on Instagram, it doesn´t mean that we should conclude that he´s not with Anderson. You would think that by now, this would be a rather safe assumption to make, given how often Ben has been proved to be wherever AC is. But I guess there are still some people out there who´ll always resist such a conclusion until they have photographic evidence. Which we now have, thanks to R406.

There's photographic proof that they fuck around on each other, or have you forgotten Ben recently tongue lashing another guy in the park?

Old pics R436. Ben doesn't even look like that now. Those pics were probably taken before he even met AC and someone decided to release them to get attention.

Funny how some people around here are desperate to argue that AC and Ben aren´t monogamous. Who cares really? It´s their business, and they seem pretty happy in their relationship. What´s clear is that they´re still together after more than 4 years, and that wherever Anderson is, Ben can be sure to be too. I don´t think AC ever been seen and photographed with the same guy for as often and as long as he´s been with Ben. Clearly something is working there. For some reason, this simple fact is rubbing some people on DL the wrong way.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44202/22/2013

R442, I care about facts, like the fact that Ben has been with Anderson for over 4 years, and that they´ve traveled to more places together than anyone else that has been involved with AC before. Everything else is just a couple of sad people who can´t deal with the fact that AC and Ben are still together after all these years, desperately pushing some kind of weird personal agenda (like you R442).

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44302/22/2013

I guess Ac is in L.A. or on the way for the Oscar parites for the weekend? I find it interesting on today's show he said he doesn't do parites where he host parites and attends them every year. AC sure does contradict himself alot still.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44402/22/2013

Thank you R441/R443. You're absolutely right, there's just no way to explain away the fact that Anderson is in a very good relationship with Ben and that seems to really have a negative effect on some folks here.

R444, I don't really know how much he parties, he and Ben do have birthday parties and occasional club-industry parties or whatever it is that Ben does and AC holds Christmas parties for his staff, but maybe he's talking about those NY parties that celebs go to often and get photographed. Maybe the parties he does are just private parties for friends and colleagues.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44502/22/2013

Interesting how Anderson arranged with Andrew Sullivan to publicize his official coming out while he was out of the country. A good way to avoid the media and keep them from asking questions. Since then, he has avoided any mention of being in a committed relationship.

He's just going along with the patterns set by Ellen, Elton John, George Michael, Andrew Sullivan, Neil Patrick Harris, Sam Champion, Thomas Roberts, and all the others who go out of their way to pretend they don't have a significant other.

Oh, wait!!!!!

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44602/22/2013

He's entitled to keep his life with Ben private. Maybe that's the one thing he wants for himself, neither one of them acknowledges the other publicly, if that's the way they want it, it's their business not ours.

IF you really believe that, what would you say to someone who writes: "Ben is SERIOUSLY hot. Anderson's not going to play around on THAT."

or: "Why have an open relationship? Anderson's not going to find anyone hotter or more loyal than Ben. He already has it all with Ben and that's why their relationship has lasted."

or: "There's no way they have an open relationship."

or: "Most of the time Ben's around when we least expect it. Probably just best to assume he's always around. For whatever reason he didn't post pics or has some kind of private account. I wonder if AC took that pic of Ben and Pablo. The shirtless guy that Brazilian columnist said AC was walking around with in Ipamena must've been Ben, but they don't know him. I guess they're heading for L.A. soon unless they're skipping it this year."

or: *If* Ben's not with AC in Brazil, maybe he'll meet up with him in L.A. for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

Above are just a few things posted about Ben and Andersonby one person. You must be very upset R447 at some Benderson Frau type posting all that and much more about the couple when, as you say, [bold]"it's their business not ours."[/bold] What would you say to a person who posts all that?

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44802/22/2013

I'm talking about the choices they have made for themselves which has zero to do with what we discuss and speculate over here and you know that R448.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 44902/22/2013

R448 sounds unhinged. She really can't deal with the fact that AC and Ben are together and protective of their relationship, refusing to make it available for public consumption (which is their right, just as r447 observed). For some odd reason, pointing this out to her really seems to piss her off. People on DL can be so weird.

any reports of Anderson and Ben at an LA party last night?

R447 - R449 took the Benderson Frau bait and swallowed it; hook, line, and sinker!!! It was a toss-up as to which one would reply first.

Three's no doubt that Anderson and Ben have been together for years, but the Benderson Fraus can't deal with the fact that it could easily be an open relationship that keeps them together. R447 - R449 have the typical frau viewpoint that it can't be an open relationship simply because two people have been together for more than four years.

Heh! Look who's the one that's pissed off. The Fraus don't want anyone to intrude on their Benderson fairytales. When an example of their stupidity is posted, they ring in with accusations of unhinged and pissed off. They don't realize they're being played and they'll take the bait every time. Unhinged? Check your mirror, Missy!

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 45402/23/2013

R454, no one is being "played" or "taking the bait" here. It's just hilarious to see how you keep pretending that you're above it all and don't care either way, but can't stand to let pass a single comment that dares to observe that, whether they have an open relationship or not, the fact that AC and Ben are still together indicates that they're happy together. For some reason, you cannot stand this. Would you care to explain why?

Personally, I don't know if they have an open relationship or not, nor do I care. I'm just observing that they're still together, so whether they're monogamous or not, whatever is keeping them together is clearly working for them, so who are you to judge? Unlike you R454, I don't think a relationship between 2 gay men is necessarily doomed to fail because they're not exclusive, as I believe monogamy to be seriously overrated (particularly for men), so I don't see what the problem is, even if AC and Ben had an open relationship.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 45502/23/2013

AC likes to screw around. I think Ben does too. Lots of rumors of how Anderson likes thin young guys. Whatever works.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 45602/23/2013

The Benderfrau of the species acts just like Anderson when confronted with evidence of Ben getting it on outside the relationship: he never acknowledged it, either.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 45702/23/2013

No one knows if either of them screw around, they seem pretty stable as a couple. Seems like if AC were to screw around he'd do it with someone who would never talk, like those high class escorts or whatever. Why would he have random hook-ups with dudes who might go blabbing? This is why you never hear of anything like that with him, if he's doing anything, he's being really, really careful. I don't think he's in a position where he can afford to have a lot of gossip about his sex life out there in the legitimate press or wherever.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 45802/23/2013

Interesting how the usual Ben-hating fraus, finally resigned to the difficult yet unarguable fact that AC and Ben are a couple, are now focusing all their efforts on arguing that their relationship is somehow less than solid because they might not be exclusive. As I said earlier, I don't know if they're monogamous or not, but as a gay man who's seen many types of different relationships, I strongly object to the notion that an open relationship is in any way less real than a monogamous one, especially given that for most men (gay and straight), monogamy is definitely unnatural. I'd rather have an honest relationship where this basic fact is acknowledged in a mature way than a pseudo-monogamous relationship where both partners cheat on each other and lie about it.

By the way, I'm not playing games, I just used my computer and later when I was out of the house, I posted my comment from my iPhone, which is why they didn't show up as being by the same person when you hit trolldar. If I really wanted to play games as you accuse me of, I wouldn't have identified myself now, would I?

So no Anderson Cooper in LA for Oscar weekend? This is the first time in years that he hasn't attended the CAA party, Barry Diller's Picnic and the Vanity Fair Dinner and Viewing party.

The multiples are in full effect. Must not be able to get it up tonite otherwise you'd be doing that instead of arguing with your split personalities.

Bottom line Anderson is a coward. There is something about this relationship he is embarrassed about. Being together with Ben for 3 plus years and still not acknowledging him publically is nothing to BRAG about. Ben should be embarrassed he put all that time and energy into the relationship and clearly hasn't recieved what most people in relationships get (and it ain't money). The most IMPORTANT thing is ACKNOWLEDGEMENT?

R470=CRAZY.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 47102/25/2013

Of course they went to the Oscar parties. Anderson isn't going to deny the glamor of the Oscar events to the love of his life. They always go to Oscar parties as a sign of support for all their friends in the business. Maybe Anderson is heeding Ben's wish for no pictures.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 47202/25/2013

Pablo posted another pic of the group (not AC and AC one of them must've taken the photo. Josh Wood is there, he might be an ex of Ben's and the kissing pic guy - he has the same kind of beard. I guess Ben is not going to post pics of his vacations with AC and friends and just leaves it to Pablo. I remember AC getting upset over some kind of new Instagram policy and didn't want to use them.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 47502/25/2013

So much for the people that say Ben doesn't like having his picture taken and that's why he wasn't in the group photo at the carnaval parade. There was the shirtless one with Pablo mid-week and today Pablo posted another one - a group of guys - shirtless - climbing. No Anderson Cooper or Andy Cohen in the group though.

JoshWood2 posted one of himself with Pablo and Ben, too. It's not like Ben doesn't know these photos aren't being posted.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 47602/26/2013

R476, that pic was posted @ R473 earlier.

Why couldn't Ben be in the pic with AC/Andy when they were wearing those godawful yellow shirts? Anyone else could've taken the pic, he didn't have to do it. Why aren't there pics with AC WITH Ben and the other guys. Seems to me that AC and Ben were deliberately keeping separate on the pics or Pablo was told to post only the pics where they are not together.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 47702/26/2013

That Brazilian guy Leo Neves that some people believed was hooking up with AC is in that group pic with Ben, Pablo, Josh and the unidentified bald guy. It looks like he's actually a friend of Ben and Pablo's rather than Anderson's. He posted a pic of Bedlam a few weeks ago on Instagram, and wrote comments on several of Pablo's pics. They all know each other and seem like a fun group (not to mention super hot!).

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 48102/26/2013

I agree with you R481. Leo, Ben, Anderson, Andy Cohen, Pablo, Josh, all know each other and are friends with each other, so the notion that Leo was AC's "secret Brazilian lover" as some were saying here is no longer believable. I think it's interesting that whenever Anderson is linked to another guy, some people immediately assume that they're fucking. Gay men have male friends too, you know, it's not all about having sex with each other. But clearly there are some folks out there who are only too eager to spread rumors that AC and Ben are cheating on each other. I have no idea why this scenario gets them so excited.

There's a difference between "cheating" and being in an open relationship. Where are you seeing all the eager claims of cheating?

Some people are discussing the possibility of an open relationship which could be one of the reasons that Anderson doesn't even acknowledge that he's involved in a relationship.

It looks as if he doesn't want to be tied into the Christian hetero form of marriage.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 48302/26/2013

Leo Neves is a friend of Anderson's. Anderson had dinner with him in LA over a year ago when he was there for Heroes over the weekend. There were no sightings of Ben on that trip and since it was out one day and the red-eye back the next night, I was thinking Ben may not have made the trip. I agree that they may all be friends, now -that's how people often meet friends, through other friends.

Doesn't mean Anderson may not hook up with him from time to time, the same way Ben seems to hook up with people from time to time. I think there are signs they have an open relationship, so it wouldn't be considered cheating. Whatever they agree to is all that matters.

I do find it odd that Ben would pose for pics with Pablo, Pablo and Josh Wood and the climbing group, but not in a picture of the group with Anderson. Can't say Ben doesn't like to have his picture taken.

For whatever reason, Anderson still apparently won't acknowledge a relationship with Ben and now that he's out and they've been together four years, that's pretty sad. He announced on WWHL and his daytime show today that he was on vacation with Andy Cohen and a group of friends. Now that he's out, why act that way? I could see if the relationship was new, but it's been 4 years. All seems rather odd to me.

He doesn't even want to be tied into informing people he has a boyfriend - marriage is completely off the table, I'm sure.

I've only seen a few pics of Ben and Anderson posing together, the VF pics, some DVF function, maybe a couple of others I can't remember, but generally if a pic is taken of them together, it's not because they posed for it. Ah, the pic with Fergie, they weren't even standing together.

I don't think there's anything particularly negative about AC and Ben not wanting to acknowledge their relationship publicly and keep it private. I think being in the public eye may make some people more reluctant to share everything about themselves and want to keep some important things for themselves. Not everyone wants or needs to be Kim and Kanye.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 48602/26/2013

I can understand why AC doesn't want to mention his relationship... i'm not even famous and I do the same thing, not announce who i'm dating on social media etc. The fact that he announced the obvious of him being gay was a shocker since he kept mum about it in the public eye for so long.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 48702/26/2013

R487 I understand that to a point, but in the past Anderson would get back from vacation, Ben would tweet on the Bedlam account about being back from vacation; Anderson was in Africa for 60 Minutes and on the day Anderson gets back Ben tweets on the Bedlam account that the time change coming back from Africa was tough; they tweet almost identical pictures at the Madonna concert in Paris; the Roger Waters concert in NYC and the Madonna concert in NYC; and then from Times Square on NYE; not to mention when Anderson tweeted about being in Portugal for 60 Minutes, Ben posted several photos to the Bedlam Instagram account from Portugal. If you want to keep a relationship off of social media, these things wouldn't have happened.

It's all odd to me - it's like a little game Anderson is playing or Ben is trying to push Anderson into acknowledging him and he won't do it.

Just my observations/opinion

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 48802/26/2013

Neither one of them posted anything this time around, they let Pablo or Andy Cohen do it. Anderson wasn't even going to mention the Brazil trip until Andy Cohen brought it up on WWHL last night. Maybe they think too much is out there connecting them as a couple already and are trying to control whatever info they can that gets out. We'll see how things turn out on their next non-work related vacation.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 48902/26/2013

R489 we already know AC is weird about somethings. Since he has "freed" himself publicly about being gay maybe he wants to still be "mysterious" in a way. I don't know but one can only daydream about what goes on in Anderson's head. I still don't understand why he announced publicly via a letter that he was gay after all of these years of it being something he publicly ignored and refuse to talk about. We do know AC has been pictured with Ben, openly at public events so I doubt if he's ashamed of Ben. My guess is he's just trying to keep this aspect of his life ignored.

Hey R495, no one knows one way or the other, no one can say definitively unless they know the intimate details of their relationship.

by Top that, Seacrest!reply 49603/05/2013

R495, what if they did have an open relationship? As a gay man who has been in my share of relationships, exclusive and non-exclusive, I really don't understand the conclusion by some around here that an open relationship is somehow less valid than a monogamous one. Monogamy is seriously overrated, especially between men, and I'd rather have an honest relationship which acknowledges that simple fact than a hypocritical one where both parties pretend that they don't stray while doing it behind each other's back. I really disagree with those shrill voices that condemn open relationships on DL, they sound to me like they're coming from uptight straight women who have no business judging gay relationships. In any case, the commenter on Perez did say that they love each other, isn't that what really matters between two people?

Therefore, I would have no problem "admitting" that AC and Ben have an open relationship if I had any proof. However, as R496, no one is privy to the intimate details of their relationship, so we cannot say for sure.
