Anderson Cooper Bares His Brawn

Anderson Cooper is out all over the place lately, hmm? First it's the pictures of the Vanderbilt-built CNN reporter and his rumored BF Julio Cesar Recio coming in to town at LAX, and now the silver fox is stripping down to his skivvys for a friendly, platonic swim with human fish Michael Phelps.

Although we do wish Cooper had put a little more effort into his underwater atire as Phelps had. Don't get us wrong, we are grateful for a shirtless A.C., but we would have loved him in a Speedo.

And maybe it's just our dirty little minds, but does Phelp's swimming technique remind anyone else of those videos of sperm you had to watch in health class?

Sorry for the gross imagery you guys, but am I right or am I right? (I am right.) Michael Phelps isn't half fish, he's just one X chromosome short of being a human.

I'd rather see more of him with his Julio - they are a great looking couple.

Too bad Anderson won't publicly acknowledge him. Sad.

I still can't fathom the gay community's fascination with this closeted albino? Aside from that bulge in his pants - and I'm referring to his mother's wallet - I don't see the interest or fascination with this queen.

And the boyfriend? Puh-leeze, he is f-ugly!

yes, his boyfriend is fugly. to each his own.

BTW, his mother lost all of her money, she used to live with Anderson because she had to sell her homes to pay back taxes.

I'm pretty certain that Anderson AND his bf look a million times better than the people who are criticizing them.

Clearly, like with in so many occupations, Anderson can't be out and keep his job. There is still a rash of closetedness in this country.
He isn't hypocrtical in the sense of dishing gays. I'm sure that he's more "out " than all of the Hollywood stars and people in business who hide their homosexuality.

I'm actually convinced that all of the negative atention is just jeolousy. As far as his being an "albino", some people turn white by age 30
He still looks good.

Why do bloggers complain that Anderson isn't "out"? How much more OUT can he get? Everybody knows he's gay - he certainly doesn't try to hide it. If he was trying to hide the fact, he would show up at events with women as his dates.
His job on CNN, however, is not the forum for him to use to talk about being gay. Reporters are supposed to be objective.
Also,from what happened in Calif. with Prop 8, we know that there are still a lot of people that would not watch 360 if talked about being gay on his show. Look what happened to Thomas Roberts - he came out on AC's show and we haven't seen him since.

Carrie: How much more out can he get? Well, he could try showing up at events with his boyfriend instead of always alone. He could say he is gay. Instead he stays silent and has yet to acknowledge Julio Cesar.

BTW, I believe that Thomas Roberts said that he was not let go from CNN for coming out. Possible that it is illegal to let someone go because of their sexual orientation.

anon: If he is keeping the boyfriend a secret then why does everyone know the boyfriend's name, occupation, how long they've been together, seen pictures of them together, etc. Maybe Julio doesn't want to be in the public eye - it's his call.

The issue is Anderson not acknowleding his sexuality, not specifically his boyfriend. He won't say with a simple yes or no if he is gay.

He doesn't say explicitly yes or no, which everyone knows mean "yes" especially when coupled with his explanations for not discussing orientation and the fact he's marriage bait who's never been linked to a woman. He's never lied or bearded, which is a lot more than many gay celebrities and gay newscasters.

He only attracted the big fuss around 2004, and then could have easily been a brief flash in the pan. And he thanked Julio years ago in his book. It's far from a Jodie Foster situation.

Thomas Roberts may not have been fired from CNN for coming out, but the fact remains he has no television career now. By the way, in television it's easy for them to get rid of you for sexuality while calling it something else. Wait a little period then say they're "taking it in a new direction" that will unfortunately mean you have to be let go.

What's the point of coming out when he enjoys the same things any gay man enjoys? That's just not about the boy-toys but also a slew of stuff that only gay men wants. It is his life. He is very much in his comfort zone and he's happy with it.

I certainly would be happy too if I lead my life as a CNN honcho, travel the world in Zegna's anytime courtesy of Hublot's and what-have-you's-of-AC's. Top that with being single! Why then would I need to be out? May be I envy him.

Guess we enjoy outing him for our individual agenda which unfortunately is different from his.
