Anderson: I dated girls when I was 12, so I could meet their brothers

This is beginning to remind me of the Onion article, "Newly Out Gay Man Overdoing It."

All of which belies any pretense that he has been out all along.

So what if he wants to talk all about it now. He realizes he made a mistake by worrying about "privacy" like Jodie Foster and felt it was more important to be visible. That's how life is, you learn and grow and change. I'm glad he's out and I'm glad he talks about it almost 24/7.

Mistake talking about privacy, R16?

Try "lie". The hysteria from defenders of his no comment went on and on about how private he is..

And what was his last excuse/lie used right through the moment he was asked by the college student that he dismissed about the question?

Safety overseas? Fear of being killed or gay bashed?

So much for that.

And so much for his dignified low key coming out.

Miss Thang seems desperate for another talk show.

by Anonymousreply 2301/16/2013

The problem with Anderson is that he had an ultra-rich, ultra-elite upbringing. He tries to shift the focus off of that by being an average American guy. John Kennedy Jr tried to do the same thing when he decided to go "slumming" and live in Tribeca. But it's impossible to disguise the fact that they didn't live normal childhoods and can't relate to the average person.

It doesn't matter. He has enough money that he doesn't have to work. If he can't get work as a journalist, he'll get work as a talk show host or a game show host. If he can't get work at that, he'll do cameos on tv shows.

Before DL I never knew people were obsessed with Anderson Cooper. To me, he was just that CNN guy that traveled to disaster area. But now that I've clicked on a few of his clips (I've never seen his other shows) I think he comes across as quite charming.

He's probably feeling quite free now. If Oprah can talk about her childhood rapes and her Stedman, and Kathy lee could obsess over her family and drink like an alcoholic every morning, if Uncle Poodle from the Honey Boo Boo show can talk about sending a man to jail fro giving him HIV, then what's so bad about AC talking about his life as a gay man. It's a given if you have a talk show, you end up talking about your personal life.

by Anonymousreply 3001/16/2013

Nice. Calling an out gay man "pervy".

Before people complained that he didn't want to be seen as gay, now that he's out and happy to talk about it, it's a problem.

R31 - Anderson's partner sure didn't mind having his picture on the Internet at Eastern Bloc before he started dating Anderson. If he was the private type, I don't think all the pics of him prior to dating Anderson would be on the Internet. I think Anderson's the one that likes his privacy and Ben knows if he wants to date Anderson he has to follow the rules.

If Ben wanted his privacy and didn't want people to know he dated Anderson he wouldn't be posting pictures of the inside of the firehouse on his Instagram page and tweeting about getting back from vacations that we know Anderson just took etc. I think at times Ben is trying to force Anderson to acknowledge him, but Anderson isn't comfortable doing it, yet, anyway.

When you are asked if you're gay and say "I refuse to talk about that" you aren't just standing quietly in an open closet, you're pulling the door shut and daring someone to bust the door down or let you hide in there until you're ready to come out.

R39 is full of shit. All Anderson said in that forward was that he wanted to have kids one day. He didn't say with a WOMAN.

R38, he NEVER lied about a damn thing.

R34, just because Ben has taken pics at EB in the past and posts some photos of the firehouse doesn't mean he's asking for his name to be all over the tabloids or to be gossiped about and hounded by paps all of the time. No one but AC's followers have any idea that Ben's pics are from the firehouse - he posts them without comment. No one but AC's followers would know where he and Ben might've vacationed, so none of that stuff you're saying makes a bit of difference to most people out there, it's meaningless.

[quote]This is the bad thing about gay people who come out late in life - as soon as they come out, they can't shut up about being gay because they want to make up for lost time.

No, they should talk and talk and talk and talk about how good it is to be gay, out and proud. Maybe there would be fewer kids killing themselves and more acceptance. God, some of you act like all out gay folks should go back in the closet and be silent again!

R2 and everyone who agrees with him/her is blind.

by Anonymousreply 4801/16/2013

R48, saying you want to have kids, particularly in those days, is usually interpreted as meaning you are heterosexual unless you say otherwise.

Don't try to be clever.

by Anonymousreply 4901/16/2013

r48, you're unhinged.

You can't say he "NEVER" lied and ignore the fact that he said his life would be in danger if he talked about his personal life and that he was a very private person. Both of those excuses were lies.

And by the way if you know anything about Anderson, you should know Mr. Keeping Them Honest admitted on air to having been a pathological liar.

And as for your little rant saying we all think he should go back in the closet and that his being out is good for kids..,

We said that for YEARS when he said he couldn't talk about his sexuality because it would put his life in danger, and when closet defenders said we wanted him to talk about being gay, issue press releases, open up his private life we said no, all we were asking is that he stop giving excuses for closeting his sexuality, say he's gay and continue to be the same Anderson he otherwise was.

Remember that?

by Anonymousreply 5101/16/2013

Don't try to be clever R49, if Anderson wanted anyone to believe he was actually straight, he would've gotten himself a beard and paraded her around with him a long time ago and he wouldn't have acted so repulsed whenever Kathy Griffin/Kelly Ripa or any woman tried to flirt with him. He's out now and it's the only thing that matters.

by Anonymousreply 5201/16/2013

He never lied R50, but there are people around who want to believe he did for their own reasons.

Even when he WASN'T out he would focus on gay issues regularly, it's not like he was some kind of enemy to the LGBT community. No one seems to go after Ricky Martin or Matt Bomer for not coming out for a long time the way they do Anderson, that's why I think all this quibbling about his behavior in the past is bullshit and someone just grinding that ax. Would it be better for him to be in the closet now? If not, what the hell is the problem? He's out, be glad and let it go for god sake.

I'd rather be a "sad fan" than some idiot holding a pointless grudge against another out gay man. Talk about SAD.

by Anonymousreply 5301/16/2013

we now have three people claiming he "NEVER" lied ...

None of then have a credible argument that he was telling the truth when he said for years -- even a few weeks before he came out -- hat his life would be in danger as a journalist if he came out. This world he was afraid of surely didn't change in a matter of weeks.

We all said then that Jeffrey Koffman and other out reporters had proven for over a decade that his claim was fabricated. It was a lie then, and it's still a lie.

by Anonymousreply 5401/17/2013

It was a lie of omission. Whether or not a lie of omission is really a lie has been up for debate for centuries.

Nevertheless, he is out now, so whatever.

Thank you R30, R31, R37 and R48 for the sensible posts.

I've never before seen so many gays turn on a gay man for coming out. It's really quite shocking. No wonder more celebrities don't come out. Jealous maybe?

And why should Anderson parade his BF in front of the world? That's his private life. It's no one else's business. But he has been photographed with Ben many times. Including most recently at the Madonna concert and walking down the street after Hurricane Sandy. Just google images. He isn't hiding anything or anyone.

so what you're saying R54 is that he should never have come out? You're probably right because he still says his biggest fear is getting kidnapped in a dangerous foreign land.

Of course he was never in the closet. That's the exact reason he did not write that letter to Andrew Sullivan. We only imagined that letter. It doesn't exist.

by Anonymousreply 6601/17/2013

R56 is absolutely right.

I don't get some of the posters here: before Anderson came out, he was constantly criticized on DL for being closeted. Now that he's out, he's criticized for being too out and too gay. I bet that the moment AC starts talking about Ben, the same people who demand that he discuss his relationship publicly (as if somehow he owed it to his audience) will complain that he's desperate for attention and rubbing his gay lover into everyone's face. It's clear by now that both Anderson and Ben are pretty private people. Given what's happening right now with Victor Garber's long time bf, who's been dating the actor for the past 13 years before the media "discovered" that Garber was gay and in a relationship with another man, I can understand why AC and Ben are less than inclined to become the next NPH and Burtka. I'm all for transparency when it comes to gay public figures being out, but it doesn't mean that they're not allowed to keep some sort of privacy and that we have to know who they're dating.

In any case, AC is out now, so why are some people still going on and on about him being in the closet?

by Anonymousreply 6701/17/2013

Exactly R67, he is OUT, the people who are still making a dumb issue about the past and what he said or didn't say would be mad at him regardless because they don't like him to begin with and want to criticize him no matter what. He is out and that's what counts the most, nothing else.

Not all AC threads have the same level of interest, the fact is that there are a lot of AC threads currently on DL and have always been since the time I started posting here almost 9 years ago. Do you see people posting tons of Don Lemon or Thomas Roberts threads here? I never do. There are old AC threads that are up to 500 posts that still are active when something happens and there will be again. The person doing the Benderson/Anderfan/Frau stuff and the Connie Chung ratings comparison isn't always around and when she does come back she gets shouted down. If something significant happens with AC and Ben, there will be threads started by those of us who are interested and they will be active ones.

What R105? I'm saying people should be OUT, but that doesn't mean it will be a cakewalk, you are aware that gay bashings and discrimination are still happening don't you? In spite of this, I'm glad MORE people are coming out.

Trying to stay relevant.....really sad.

Kevin Spacey's on Hardball now. When will he EVER come out?

by Anonymousreply 10801/29/2013

R106, yes, I agree totally.

Anderson, when we "dated," it was apparent from outer space you were gay, gay, gay. I enjoyed being your hag. The only person deceived about your gayness was you.

Last post 1-29-13? Is there another thread or just no news to report on Ac and Ben?

by Anonymousreply 11102/04/2013

There's no news about A&B right now. AC was in Sweden over the weekend working on something. When we get pics or some kind of news, things will pick up on these threads.

No new threads? R112 Which is current?

by Anonymousreply 11302/04/2013

The thread with the most current info was the Kathy Griffin New Year's Eve thread that had the info on Ben's birthday party at the firehouse.

Hope to see new pics or sightings soon. r114. btw AC's daytime show didn't show at regular time at 11 a.m. in my area. In Maryland. Tomorrow won't be able to see it because of superbowl parade starts at 11 a.m. For some reason Ellen came on at 11 today on nbc instead of Anderson's show.

Some pics might come out before AC and Ben go to the Oscars like they always do, but that's when we can expect a lot of sightings and pics.

Maybe they're gradually taking his show off of some channels since it's not coming back. They're still showing it regularly where I am.

Meanwhile Ricki Lake's daytime show just got canceled.

So what's with Anderson tonight? To say he looks orange is an understatement. He needs to lay off the self tanner. He also seems to be stumbling over his words more than usual. 360 is a hot mess tonight.

As gay as Anderson is you'd think he would be getting manicures and pedicures all the time. I think he does get them but lies and says he doesn't on his daytime show to appear more normal and less gay.

by Anonymousreply 11802/04/2013

Both Ricky Lake and Jeff Probst's talk shows got canceled today after just one season. The field is getting so crowded that it's getting really difficult to have good ratings. At least Anderson got two seasons before getting axed.

Anderson was anchoring from a Stockholm TV station. They were tweeting about it. Apparently their lighting and makeup people aren't too good with his fair skin tone.

Terence is super gay and seems stupid trying to embarrass Anderson and makes fun of him for not being into superficial/gay activities. It's obvious Anderson has no interest in the superficial/vain activities Terence likes. I have a feeling once the last talk show is taped Anderson won't be talking to Terence anymore and Terence can't handle that. He's jealous of Anderson - it's so obvious and so pathetic.

Terence alone, has ruined 'Anderson Live' with his inability to be an effective EP. He's the walking definition of the Peter Principle - promoted beyond his level of ability.

No doubt there will be hundreds of sightings and pics like we get every year. I can hardly wait.

I don't care about sarcasm R121, I want more AC/Ben pics NOW!

Small bit about Ben possibly opening a new bar.

R123 - link doesn't work

AC has tired to tone down the "gay" jokes on his daytime show but Terrece continues like today when AC was eating meat balls. Of course Terrence had to make a joke about balls.

An other thing they keep promoting his show on local T.V. like his show is renewed and that it isn't cancelled. I don't get it. I think next month that's it. Late march production is supposed to stop.

[quote]Overheard At A Party Rumor has it that Eastern Bloc co-owner Benjamin Maisani is working on opening another gay bar, this time in the West Village. We hear he’s hit some roadblocks, with progress dragging in ways it never did with his East Village establishments, Eastern Bloc and Bedlam. Things are starting to progress, however, and Maisani expects to open the new gay watering hole sometime this spring.[/quote]

Two weeks ago, I read that some stations have already pulled his talk show. What do they have to replace it?

by Anonymousreply 12702/11/2013

Because nobody is watching it R127?

Anderson lost me the day he talked about how he could blow out a toilet in record time after eating Mexican food. He then admitted that he sometimes doesn't wipe himself fully and winds up with grape sized dingleberries.

[quote] What do they have to replace it?

Local stations could air infomercials and they would make more money than the advertising revenue they would get from airing AC

R125 - Terence has ruined the show in my opinion. His "trashy" gay vs Anderson's "classy" gay references are uncalled for. And why is the executive producer part of the show on a daily basis? Can we just all agree that Terence is an attention whore who realizes that his days on TV are numbered since he failed at Anderson Live?

The redeeming part of today's show was Anderson's interview with Peter Staley. I like when Anderson addresses gay issues and acknowledges he's gay, but doesn't go for the cheap joke or trashy references.

Thank you R126, interesting quote. Where did you find it?

by Anonymousreply 13102/11/2013

I wonder what the problem was for Ben's new bar opening. I remember maybe about a year or two ago seeing a post from someone here who said Ben was working on a third bar, so this has been going on a while.

by Anonymousreply 13202/11/2013

R131 I'm not R126 but the link is below from NEXT Magazine.

R132 I remember that, too. I think they even gave the name of the new partner he was working with, but I don't remember the name now. Does anyone else?

On today's show on the last segment they had a cooking segment with booze in it and AC said he was getting so drunk he would make out with Christie Brinkley. LOL She did not look all that amuse because I think she likes Anderson. She said he was hot in the start of show and AC had this look on his face like... Uh.... yeah lol.

Yesterday's show AC had a former member of westboro baptist church on. She had a gay best friend the whole time! Just shocking... the guy claimed he came out to her last week but she already and their grandmother all ready knew. I notice Terrence was completely silent doing that whole segment. I wonder how Terrence feels with him being so out in all, he's unlike AC who can blend in with any group. But a guy like terrence probably has been bullied and mocked his whole life for being so out.

by Anonymousreply 13402/14/2013

For heaven's sake, she must know he's gay, why would she get offended? Anyway, she's ditzy and odd, she kind of rambles but she seems like a decent person and she looks fabulous. If AC were straight, he might go for her, unless he likes exotic types.

Anyway, AC's taking off tonight, probably having a romantic night with Ben (still in love after 5 years) and they may be going on vacation and he'll be out next week. Chris Cuomo (who AC calls a "buddy") will be filling in for him. I think his "buddy" is out to take his job!
