Anderson Cooper Comes Out Of The Closet


Recommended Posts

In other news, the sky is blue, water is wet, and Alabama fans are white trash. Not a big shocker.

Anderson Cooper has some news to share.

"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud," the CNN anchor wrote Monday in an open letter to his longtime friend Andrew Sullivan of the Daily Beast.

The host of Anderson Cooper: 360, 45, also says that he has waited until now to announce the fact because, "As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn't matter."

Cooper, who also hosts his own syndicated talk daytime show Anderson, addressed the subject after Sullivan – a British writer who is openly gay and Catholic – put the question to him after a cover story in the current Entertainment Weekly focused on how gay people in the public life are currently coming out in understated and matter-of-fact manners.

"Andrew, as you know, the issue you raise is one that I've thought about for years. Even though my job puts me in the public eye, I have tried to maintain some level of privacy in my life. Part of that has been for purely personal reasons. I think most people want some privacy for themselves and the people they are close to," Cooper began.

"It's become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long," he continued. "I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something – something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true."

hmmmm,

well, not for nuthing, cause i support gay rightz and all -- but i guess one of my signature dance movez just got a little more controversial.

It's called tha Anderson Cooper 360: I chug a bunch of Smirnoff Ice, and spin around in a circle til I barf. Then I keep spinning so tha centrifugal force propelz my smirnoff barf onto everyone around me. I only do that dance in lame kloughhbz as it's alwayz apt to get me kicked out.
