Anderson Cooper & Ben Maisani: Rambagh Palace Pair

Anderson Cooper & Ben Maisani: Rambagh Palace Pair

Anderson Cooper and pal Antoine “Ben” Maisani were spotted together at the Rambagh Palace hotel on Tuesday (October 27) in Jaipur, India.

The 42-year-old CNN host is staying at a $3,200-a-night room at the Rambagh Palace, which is one of the world’s most opulent hotels and named the best hotel in the world by Conde Nast Traveler.

A Page Six source says, “Anderson‘s room has a large round bathtub. On the first night it was filled with bubbles and sprinkled with red rose petals.”

Maisani is an owner of East Village bar Eastern Bloc and was spotted biking with Anderson back in June.

CNN recently fell to last place in ratings for prime-time programs.

love Anderson, he is the best

# 2

Seriously, when is this guy coming out? When he co-hosts on Regis & Kelly, he giggles like a little girl, admits to watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta, knows all about the Kardashians, I mean, does he think we DON’T KNOW he’s gay?? Why the big secret?

# 3

i dunno, i wish he would…he has clueless girls still swooning over him, denying that he’s not gay just because he hasnt come out publicly and said so…its sad.

# 4

I hope they had a great time!

# 5

Is Anderson Cooper gay???

# 6

He’s so darn cute. His BF isn’t bad, either. Must be rough, though, staying in such quarters when traveling. LOL

To whom is he obligated to come out? I don’t get that. I mean, it’s not difficult to put 2+2 together. The clueless girls will just have to deal! :)

It’s funny how they say there is nothing wrong with being Gay, but they don’t seem to be eager to tell anyone they are Gay. Well one might say, heterosexuals don’t go around telling people they are heterosexual. That’s quite true, but then again they don’t go around defining themselves by their sexuality. It’s a ‘so what’ with heterosexuals, not a declaration of who they are.

# 8

well it is obvious he’s gay… never seen him with a girl
just be happy for him

@jaye #7 — I think that was really well articulated, but I don’t agree completely. Being gay isn’t the sole way gay people define themselves. It’s merely one aspect of whom they are. Just as w/ heteros, gay people can be very private too and don’t feel a need to be “in your face” w/ their sexuality. Ergo, it is to them, a “so what”, too. That’s as it should be. And when they are accepted for whom they are, that’s when it’ll be a “so what” not only to them, but to everyone. It’s very easy to be a “so what” hetero when we are the ones who are socially sanctioned. Gays have not yet reached that point. They will, though.

they’re both hot.

when are they gonna get married and have children? their children will be so cute!

I agree with Pandora. Who says that coming out means they are “defining themselves by their sexuality.” I thought TR Knight said it well after he come out (although he was semi-forced to after Isaiah-gate) he said that “I hope the fact that I’m gay isn’t the most interesting part of me.”

He’s gay, he’s admitted that on major publications but believes that his work should not mix with his personal life – as a major credible news report he’s totally right. I really respect him because he’s obviously gay & supports the community but is private, he’s a professional & that to him means more than anything. It’s not about his personal life being a secret, it’s about his career being a priority.

@not closet case – very well said.

@not closet case:

Sorry, he’s NEVER admitted he’s gay. He has said he doesn’t discuss his personal life but unless you can show where and when, he has NOT admitted anything. Obvious, yes. He should so he’s a positive role model.

nooooooo! he is MINE. I love Anderson!

how sad that Anderson is so ashamed of being gay that he can’t say the words to his fans.

disappointing too he sits there with panels discussing gay issues and he sits there acting like he is some sort of a cassanova trying to act neutral.

maybe it not matter to him, he makes millions and gets to spent and live in the lap of luxury.

i am one of those clueless girls in denial.

gay or straight, he’s an intelligent, compassionate, funny, and articulate man and any person would be lucky to date him.

I’ve spotted them before. I wish AC would come out, he’d be a great role model but I understand his right to his privacy.

I think that in Anderson Coopers case, we really like him and just want to know about his personal life. I think both women and men probably do have a “crush” on him because he is so likable and just want to know about his personal life. I admit, I do like to watch him and I get a chuckle when he talks about the reality TV shows he watches. It’s funny because he has been to many dangerous locations and is a respected journalist, yet he likes to watch and knows all the stupid celebrity d-listers just like the rest of us. He knows it’s all nonsense and laughs at himself for watching it too. I also love it when he co-hosts with Kelly Ripa as well. I personaly think he is gay just because we never see him out with women. Sure, maybe he hasn’t found “miss right”, but I see more photos of him looking for “mr right”.

Uhh, yeah Pal is a good way to put it.

Because people say there isn’t anything wrong with been gay, and chooses not to come out if they are themselves doesn’t mean they are hypocrites. It just simply means it’s no one’s business.

Who cares if he comes out or not? Ok, so if he does come out (IF he’s gay) how would that change anything? Unless you’re a bigot, it shouldn’t change a thing. And if your biggest objection is that you hate wondering if he is or isn’t then you need better things to focus on.

Pandora-#9

Well said!!

And good for you Mr. Cooper, you look happy, and that is the most important thing.

…plus, people who want him to come out so he can be a positive role model to the gay community need to realize. The BEST role models are the people you know in your PERSONAL life. People in the public eye may influence you positively but they are NOT who should look for personally.
