Anderson Cooper: Gold's Gym Guy

Anderson Cooper: Gold's Gym Guy

Anderson Cooper carries in a drink from Gold’s Gym after working out in Hollywood on Friday afternoon (November 20).

The 42-year-old news anchor arrived at a studio to tape a segment for his CNN show, Anderson Cooper 360.

Rumors have been swirling the past few months about Anderson replacing Regis Philbin on Live With Regis and Kelly in 2011. The National Enquirer reports Anderson will take over for Regis, who is apparently looking to retire.

WOULD YOU WATCH the talk show Live With Anderson and Kelly?

    i love him

  • pup

    I would watch it. =P

  • jam

    i love him

  • anna

    i love him as well, but i wonder when he’s going to come out and admit what people in new york already know. this man is gay.

  • TR

    @anna:

    It’s not just people in NY that know that he’s gay, trust me. When he is in LA, there have been dinner parties hosted in his honor where the main thing served is VERY young boys as dinner guests. Anderson is a major MO.

    @anna:
    How is his private life, and especially such a private thing as somebody’s sexuality your f*cking problem? It’s none of your business, leave him alone. You’re an narrow-minded idiot.

  • http://modblog.bmezine.com Marissa

    @TR:
    See above, douchebag.

  • KC

    Not only is Anna an idiot but so is TR! I’m SO sure that news of these so called parties have gotten out so someone such as yourself can spread it all over the net. Lie much TR?

    If this were true and you knew then the police would too and people would be arrested by now don’t you think? Including Anderson. Like I said..lie much?

  • ron

    Anderson Cooper is a homosexual not a pedophile, TR. Kindly take your anti-gay stereotypes and don’t let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

  • TR

    @Marissa:

    Sweetheart – if you are in the public eye, you have a public life, like it or not. If I’m a douchbag then you are used tampon.

  • MM

    “WOULD YOU WATCH the talk show Live With Anderson and Kelly?”
    YES !

  • TR

    @ron:

    Where was it stated that I said he was a pedophile? Are you people THAT stupid on this site? I said VERY young – if you think that it means under 21 than you are projecting YOUR desires, not what I had implied. It is 100% true about these dinners in LA, I know people that have gone do deal with it. AC is a big queen and loves the c-o-c-k and I have every right to relay the story.

  • anna

    to marissa, no i am not narrow minded. but you are the idiot. this man is NOT A PRIVATE CITIZEN; he is a celebrity. he chose this life. there is nothing wrong for the gay lifestyle. what is wrong is that this man is deliberately hiding who and what he is. and if you cannot understand this concept then you are the one with the problem.

  • Jake G

    Gay is OK!

  • TR

    @KC:

    I love when people in Ohio think they actually know what’s happening in the entertainment world. Stay local, tip a cow and marry your cousin.

  • TR

    @anna:

    That’s right Anna. These locals don’t get the concept of celebrity. And he constantly makes hints an innuendo about it all time. Watch him on Regis or on his show. It’s as though he wants to come out but he’s afraid to do so. There is nothing wrong with him being gay, but hiding it makes him a lousy role model.

  • http://modblog.bmezine.com Marissa

    @anna:
    Just because he is a journalist, he doesn’t have the right to live a private life? The way to destroy prejudices is to not care about someones ethnicity or sexuality, to not mark someone with those things as if those are the only things this person stands for. What you do, is scream “GAY, GAY” when this thread is about his job. That’s why a lot of gay people choose not to discuss their sexuality. Just because you “are okay with homosexuality” doesn’t mean you’re open-minded. In fact, your behavior displays the opposite.

  • http://modblog.bmezine.com Marissa

    @TR:
    And again, see above “honey”.

  • ron

    TR, there is nothing inappropriate about being a party that includes guys 21 or over, and guys that age in no way legitimate that sort of innuendo you were doing. If you are trying to be honest and not fuel anti-gay hate you also would not have said BOYS to refer guys 21 or older (who are adults and MEN). Those are facts and not projection.

    That sort of “VERY young boys” garbage is the type of lies and false implications that anti-gay groups have used for a long time to try to equate homosexuals with pedophiles. Your posts are making me think you are a gay man yourself, in which case please stop aiding and abetting our worst enemies to spread nasty hateful anti-gay stereotypes.

  • Christy

    No, I think he would be better off staying in the news department. Atlhough, these days the networks’ idea of news is entertainment. Maybe he should become a stupid jerk like Hannity and make millions of dollars. No – we still need intelligent journalists.

  • sammy

    Can’t stand him, the rating would tank, just like the rating on his show at CNN, and to hear his giggle … laugh would to all the time would be awful.

  • trevor

    @TR:

    If you actually cared about his value as a role model you would not be trying to dirty his reputation by telling stories with anti-gay overtones to wrongly make him sound like a creepy predator on kids. Whether he stays in the glass closet or announces he’s gay, he’s only going to be useful to the gay community as a role model and as an ambassador to the straight community to the extent that his reputation is good instead of tarred by your kind of bullshit.

  • anna

    oh marissa you know so little and understand even less. from the time i was 6 months old i and my brothers were raised by our father and his life partner, both of who are card carrying members of the gay community. they both shared legal and physical custody of us. growing up i had two fathers. i was brought up in a gay household, i saw the lifestyle from the inside. i didn’t know that other children had mothers until i hit kindergarten. have you got that? or do i have draw a bigger picture.

  • Grace

    I like it when he fills in for Regis from time to time but I don´t think he will replace Regis permanently. I think he likes working in the news business.

    To the gay discussion:
    Unless someone is openly gay, and happy to talk about it, it´s nobodys business – inlcuding mine.
    He said it several times, that he doesn´t want to discuss his private life and people should just respect that. No one has a “right” to know.
    I think it´s sad that the first thing people think about, is whether he is gay or not. I mean, he does such a great job and is smart, funny, witty and adorable – his sexual orientation shouldn´t matter.

    @KC:
    KC… U R AN IDIOT! IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE SMALL BOYS. THEY ARE YOUNG MEN. AND YES, THESE PARTIES EXIST. U DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE PRIVATE MATTERS OF THE GAY LIFESTYLE.
    BUT THEY DO LIKE TWINKS… BOYISH GAY MEN.
    AND IT WOULD BE NO SURPRISE IF THER WER UNDERAGE GAY BOYS… B/C THEY WANT TO BE THERE.
    TRUST ME, I’VE BEEN TO HOMES OF QUITE A FEW RICH GAY MEN… SOME WHO GIVE PLENTY OF MONEY TO THE CITY.
    SO, THE COPS IGNORE THE GOINGS ON AT THESE PLACES. AND SO DO THE NEIGHBORS.

  • Annaliese

    @Anna

  • trevor

    Christine, straight men like women in their twenties. Being attracted to people in their twenties or enjoying to spend some time in their company has nothing to do with a “gay thing”. And statistically there is much more child molestation committed by men on underage girls than by men on underage boys.

  • Annaliese

    @ Anna

    Is your other name Carol Hubbard from Portland Oregon? Did you inform the National Enquirer of these lies? You are the major post on AnderBanter and you need to be right because you have a big hole in your own life that you need to fill with gossip and lies about someone you don’t know and have never met.\

    Am I close?

    BTW, you’re an idiot and CNN is on to you.

  • http://modblog.bmezine.com Marissa

    @anna:
    That is no answer to my comment, nor does it defend yours. What might be possible for you or people you know, can’t just be traced on every other person. Although I don’t need to tell you: I have a Master’s degree in Gender studies and work now as a women’s and equal opportunity commissioner at an NGO. Stop demanding great deals of others and let them live their lives as they choose to live it. But start criticize those, who won’t let others live peacefully. If what you say is right: you should know it’s unfortunately still not easy to live as an openly gay person, as your comments or demands make it sound. Draw a bigger picture yourself, away from your family, to the society, to the country, to the world we still have to live in.

  • christine (WeHo)

    @trevor:
    U R AN IDIOT TOO.
    U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE GAY LIFESTYLE.
    HANG OUT AT A MALE GAY DIVE BAR IN LOS ANGELES, LAS VEGAS, NEW ORLEANS, NYC, EUROPE, ETC… THEN U’LL KNOW WHAT “TR” IS REFERRING TO.
    U’LL SEE A TON OF “BOYS” …AKA “HUSTLERS”…. AKA MALE HOOKERS OR “GAY-FOR-PAY” STRAIGHT BOYS.
    COME HANG OUT IN HOLLYWOOD.. .. AND U’LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
    THEY’RE @ EVRY STREET CORNER.
    THESE THINGS EXIST IN SMALL TOWNS TOO.

  • anna

    to annaliese; sorry but i have no idea who carol hubbard from portland, oregon is; and nor do i care to know. today is the first time i’ve posted on anderson.

  • trevor

    There are a lot of female hookers in all those cities and towns too, Christine. In fact, there are more female hookers in America marketing themselves to straight men than there are male hookers marketing themselves to gay men so I fail to see your point. Hookers aren’t part of a “gay lifestyle”, they are part of a “male lifestyle” for a certain section of the male population. Prostitution is not a matter of gay or straight lifestyle.

  • christine (WeHo)

    TREVOR….WE KNOOOW!

  • steve

    TR: You are being part of the problem not part of the solution.

    What the hell was that? People in LA can see Anderson Cooper is gay because he doesn’t try to deny it and because he visits LA openly with his 36 year old boyfriend. If or not he has attended dinner parties at friends’ houses also attended by men in their 20s has nothing to do with anything, and it wouldn’t be the reason people in LA know whether he’s gay. Your inflammatory slimey words “served up” “VERY young” “boys” sound like they are drawn straight out of a scare pamphlet from a Christian league telling people why gays are perverts who shouldn’t be allowed to teach school or adopt children.

  • TR

    @christine (WeHo):

    Christine: try as we might, most of the people on this site live in a Sarah Palin world so trying to convince them to think otherwise is useless. These are the same people who bitch to Jared that because he is gay that he is trying to make his postings gay. Guess what: it’s HIS site and he can post however he wants to!! No one is breaking down AC; this guy is VERY, VERY open about his sexuality off the air. Look at all the pictures that run of him and his BF. And yes, being a public figure opens you up to speculation. Don’t like it – get a job at the mall and no one will care about you. He is gay, he likes to party with young(er) boys, so f’ing deal with it already Annaliese!!

  • http://www.fitnesslovematch.com/ Karly

    Is he married yet?

  • steve

    Now you’re officially joining forces with the woman who is claiming the gay lifestyle is prostitutes and underage boys and you’re patting her on the back for her insights? You are definitely part of the problem, TR.

  • trevor

    There are more men preying on teenage girls than teenage boys, and being gay does not mean you chase boys in their teens. That is telling the truth.

  • pup

    @TR: Get OVER IT and quit crying like a little b*i*t*c*h.

  • KC

    I think Annaliese was wrong! TR is definitely Carol Hubbard, Aries Moon on All Things Anderson Cooper, Coopedup & Cesar on Anderbanter hell she is probably both TR and Anna on here! She spews the same worthless crap about Anderson being SO open and pictured with his boyfriend all over the place. She thinks she knows everything about Anderson and gets mad when confronted with the truth. Every single item that was told in the National Enquirer article was on her quicktopic board being hounded over by her until just last week it mysteriously was all deleted and then the NE article came out. HMM..wonder why? She is a real nut job! She has a thing for Anderson yet Anderson told her to F Off! She is a delusional stalker.

  • amber

    hell ya
    hes soo sexyy
    my mouth is watering
    yumm♥

  • TR

    @KC:

    Who the F is Carol Hubbard? I think you people are putting WAY too much thought into Anderson Cooper and his life. My original point was that that man is gay, should not hide, is known to enjoy the company of young, attractive gay men at dinner parties, clubs, etc… and he should acknowledge as much publicly because he so often alludes to it on air. He would be a great role model. Beyond that I do not care about Anderson Cooper any more than I care about Steve, KC, Pup, and all the other unobjective and unrealistic people here who think AC 1) isn’t gay, 2) shouldn’t come out to be a good role model, 3) isn’t steering that way by being photographed with his BF. Wake up people, this is a GOSSIP site where people GOSSIP and talk s-m-a-c-k about people. If you don’t agree or like, join a bible study and read the new Sarah Palin book! Get OVER yourselves and these high and mighty attitudes because it AND you are all laughable. Now go have a good day and kick a puppy.

  • TR

    @steve:

    And I’m not joining forces with anyone; what I intended was that she was simply pointing out the realities of some aspects of gay life. Something that most here don’t seem to understand, recognize or realize. I don’t go beyond that with her but SHE does seem to be able to get what is real. Lighten up Steve. Maybe you just haven’t met the right guy yet.

  • melissa

    he’s great. but in the mornings? no thanks. i’d rather watch him at night or as a host of a show, the morning talk thing doesn’t suit his reporting style. he’s way cute, gay or not.

  • Annaliese

    @Anna

    Right, first time ever posting on Anderson yet you think you know all about his private life and his sexuality? Right.

    @TR

    If Anderson enjoys all these young gay boys as you slander then do tell us why he is allegedly dating a old ugly guy? You are a liar.

  • TR

    @Annaliese:

    Hey Stupid Annaliese: do you think AC is straight? Really? What part of Arkansas do you live in? He’s gay, deal with it. And he’s not dating an old ugly guy as you stated. He’s mid 30s and in better shape than you’ll ever be. I can only imagine how wide your a-s-s is in person.

  • Linda

    Take over Larry King instead of Regis. I’d like to see him continue as a newsman/journalist. Why move to chessy R&K show?

    Don’t do that Anderson.

  • BBQ

    I WOULD SO WATCH
    HE’S HOT AND HE AND KELLY HAVE GREAT CHEMISTRY

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    anderson’s a great host. him and kelly make a great pair. i been knew he’d be someone they’d look at when regis retired.
    .
    he’s a fcuking vanderbilt, how can one man be so lucky. lmao
