Don Lemon from CNN

I didn't know he was 44. He looks about 10 years younger. Is he gay?

I like Don. He's very handsome and has a nice personality. And I AM surprised that he's 44. He's one of the very very few people that can actually say he looks 10 years younger, and get away with it.%0D %0D That said, I understand what the person above is trying to say about him acting immaturely. When he's being conversational on-air, he's pretty vapid, and he clearly suffers from gay Peter Pan syndrome.%0D %0D I guess that's why he still looks so young.

He's 44 and still only working on the weekends?%0D Can't CNN get him a weekday gig before he is 50?

He has good lighting in the studio that makes him look younger. Look at this wikipedia pic that's not in the studio. Jowly and chubby faced, decidedly middle-aged.

Has to be gay considering he's not married and has never married.

Oh, and I agree with the earlier poster who notes that he looks nothing like TJ: TJ is indeed hot while Don is not.

R17, "vapid" means "insipid". Rick Sanchez isn't vapid, he's a buffoon. Vapid is less noisy but both are annoying, each in his own special way.

Pretty, but dumb as a box of rocks like most of CNN's readers. The interview with Ground Zero Mosque guy cited in the wikipedia article is a fine example of his careful reasoning process.

R33, perhaps he hasn't updated his page in a while. Don and I went to HS together. He is two years younger than I am, and I'm 46. He comes from a very cool family, whose extended branches were quite prominent in Baton Rouge black society back in the day.

Did you know Don well in HS r44? He must have been cute as a teenager.

by Anonymousreply 4508/30/2010

Yes, R45, and apologies to those who recall my previous posts about him. Yes, I knew him well; his cousin and I were best friends since elementary school. %0D %0D Don transferred to our HS because my friend was there. Though he was the new guy in a predominantly white school (in a racially segregated small town), by the end of his first year, he practically owned that school. All the white girls especially adored him, but he was popular with everyone. You could tell he was confident, but he was NEVER ugly, bitchy, or condescending. And that was rare for any popular person of any color/gender in my HS.%0D %0D FWIW.

by Anonymousreply 4608/30/2010

Forgot to add, R44--I'll scan his HS yearbook photo and try to post it here. He really didn't change much (to me, at least); in fact, when I first saw him on CNN, I said, "Hey, that's DON LEMON, X's cousin!" That was long before they finally flashed his name onscreen.

Thanks r47, I would love to see Don's yearbook pic! Here is a short piece he wrote about growing up in his hometown. I wouldn't have guessed that he is from Baton Rouge or the South. It seems like he is Creole.

by Anonymousreply 5408/30/2010

R54, while Don is not Creole, there actually are a lot of Creoles in the greater Baton Rouge area. We're just across the river from West Baton Rouge and Pointe Coupee Parishes, which were settled by native and Creole French whites (the Cajun influx came later).%0D %0D Just a point of info (I'm sure you know this, R54, but some DLers may not): Not all Creoles have a New Orleans connection, and not all Southerners (or Blacks) have stereotypical accents. Don actually sounds now pretty much as he has since his voice changed at puberty!

I don't watch Don's show much but he's seemed OK to me up until the Haiti coverage. Don had an inappropriate habit of quizzing CNN people on air repeatedly about how tough it all was for them over there and whether they were going to need therapy when they get back. He'd get embarrassed quick firm reponses that they were fine and anything they might experience was nothing compared to the incredible suffering the Haitians were going through, but he kept doing it and not letting the subject drop.%0D %0D Jason Carroll was also embarrassing during that coverage. He joined the group in Haiti where all the guys wore black t-shirts all the time, but his had a kind of lycra shine to it and was ludicrously tight. He looked like he was on his way to a club and everytime he had to interact with Haitians he carried himself like he was barely restraining himself from holding his nose.

r61, I think they work do other work at CNN while not reporting. TJ and Don pop up sometimes on camera for breaking news during the week, even though they read on the weekends. I wish Betty Nyugen or Fredricka Whitfield could have taken Kiran Chetry's place on American Morning. They have yet to find two decent people for that time spot.

r60, I agree about the tight shirt thing with Jason and Anderson, but CNN knows exactly what they are putting out. Don's body isnt exactly ripped, so it doesn't distract from his reporting. CNN has really gotten the disaster porn thing down to a science. They know people love the drama.

That's fine with me, but on the other Haiti coverage guys like Ivan Watson, Anderson and Sanjay the t-shirts were plain fabric and loose enough to look pretty practical and comfortable. Jason's painted on lycra looking t-shirt looked really silly. Jason was also the only one whose wardrobe never looked the slightest bit worn or dusty, which would fit with the way he appeared to be keeping his distance from everything and everyone.

Don is bitchy and insecure at work, which is why he isn't really going anywhere at CNN. To be fair, his limited skills as a reporter are partially to be blamed for his current situation, but he doesn't seem to understand that. He has gotten rather bitter over the past few months over the direction, or lack of, of his career.

Don Lemon was funny tonight during the post-Super Bowl coverage. The news was mostly about the power outage in the Superdome, but they kept checking the Baltimore crowds too see if they were getting out of control in the celebrating.

It was clear that he wasn't too well informed on the NFL, and he admitted as much. In fact he closed the night saying that the apologizes for not knowing sports well, but unlike some other broadcasters who fake it, he's not afraid to admit it.

He also said he feels the karma thing stung San Fran because of the anti-gay comments Chris Culliver made earlier in the week. It was the reason he wanted the Ravens to win.

The correspondent that CNN had in the Superdome was mostly useless, so overall the broadcast was a mess, but it was fun anyway.

I love it when Don takes sports. Being masculine.

Does Don Lemon get something done to his face? He was on Wendy Williams today and when he gave a big toothy smile, it looked like he has cheek filler in.

Ben Tinker is not even cute. Don is much better looking even at his age.

r314, from what I can tell Don has always had high cheekbones

Don still looks damn good!

He had same work that AC had done recently. They both went to the same Dr.

Anderson said on his daily show last year he not had work fone. What did he and Don have done? Anderson looks the same to me.

Stop it r326, Don has dated other brothers before. Not that anything is wrong with him going on a date with Andy Cohen. Get it Don!

Don said on Wendy Williams that u shouldn't should show off all your sexual tricks on the first date. That guys are after the hunt.

Are we to assume that means a rimjob is date 4?

Is Lemon permanently in NYC now?

by Anonymousreply 33607/01/2013

Yes R336, he moved from Atlanta to Harlem. He said on his Twitter feed that moving away from his longtime personal trainer was one of the awful things about leaving Atlanta.

Then he asked his Twitter followers if they had any recommendations for a (preferably Harlem-based) trainer.

He knows his priorities!

I bet you those hoes in Hell's Kitchen have spotted him!

R333, no, he's very low-wattage. You can tell this any time he attempts questions outside of his script.

I think he's rather plain-looking myself.

Did anyone watch the Don Lemon special about the "N" word? It was most interesting and should shut up those who think Paula Deen is innocent.

Check out the just-released Don Lemon 80s model pics! He has always been a good looking guy. 25-30 years ago he looked very cute while now he's handsome at almost 50:

by Anonymousreply 34504/19/2014

Actually Lemon is very bright. He's dated a lot of intellectuals also.

You wouldn't catch him dating some average bartender. And I doubt he's with Cohen.

by Anonymousreply 34604/19/2014

those modeling pics prove that he was always good looking, has great genes and has taken care of himself all these years later.

by Anonymousreply 34704/19/2014

Oh, I think he is cute.

I think someone has too much make-up on him though. He looks orange.

But I like him. Sure better than Miss Cohen.

I don't know about Miss Cooper anymore. Seems stuck-up and fixated on hot Hispanic men. So he wouldn't look at an ordinary looking guy--which, after all, she herself is.

by Anonymousreply 34804/19/2014

Don, if you are on here, you are a handsome butch guy. Seriously. Do yourself a favor and stay away from the C-word. Yes, Miss Andy herself. Ole girl has to at least have herpes. And you are prettier and smarter and can do so much better. Stay away from Miss C. too.

Now Sam would be a hot guy to go for, but I think he has a young one too.

From what I can tell he only dates boss dudes, like that guy from Chicago. Im sure he's had enough average joes as cute as he was/is.

Don could have been a teen idol actor had he wanted to. He surely had the looks for it. He's aged quite well too.

I hope Don's star continues to rise at CNN. He is really engaging. I would like to see him on a morning program, that suits his style.

by Anonymousreply 35809/21/2014

His comments about disciplining children "like a dog" deserve a good hard slap.

Speaking of closeted news anchors, Greg Gumbel used to hire a friend of mine who escorted at the time. This was like 10+ years ago though, and I haven't talked to my friend in a while, so I don't know if he still is.

R358 How about Don and Brianna Keilar from 8 to 10 am.

I caught an episode of Wendy Williams yesterday and was surprised to see Don Lemon on, with two other people who were doing a celebrity gossip segment. I thought he was a "serious" news reporter/journalist for CNN, but he was on being all chatty and shady. Right before the segment aired, they put the camera on the 3 people as a teaser and they all made red carpet poses, like starlets do. Not what I expected from this newsman. I'm torn - not sure if it made him look less credible or more human/a fun guy.

Has he been on Wendy before?

by Anonymousreply 38702/07/2015

R387 yes Don has been part of her "Hot Talk Panel" numerous times before. He also came on the show when he released his book a few years ago.

Something I NEVER thought I'd see-Don on a MOTORCYCLE?????
