Anderson Cooper says it's possible he will discuss his significant other on his upcoming daytime talk show Anderson, according to a new profile in Entertainment Weekly.
"My job has been reporting for so long," Cooper tells EW when asked if he'll discuss his personal life on the new talk show. "I have a nightly newscast. I'm not interested in who reporters are seeing. The less I know about reporters, the better, from my perspective as a viewer. I'm not interested in their personal lives. But I understand people are, and, you know, we'll see."
Cooper says it's possible he'll discuss his significant other on the show but declines to mention whether he's currently dating anyone.
Considered one of the most affable and relatable television journalists, Anderson also opens up about his privileged upbringing in Manhattan as a son of heiress Gloria Vanderbilt and writer Wyatt Cooper. Among frequent houseguests was late gay author Truman Capote who "was mean and had long, curly toenails." Cooper reveals that the suicide of his brother Carter spurred him to become a journalist.
Cooper also commented on his recent on-air giggle fit over actor Gerard Depardieu, which quickly went viral. “I don’t know what happened with the giggling,” he says. “I mean, I’ve always giggled like a 13 year-old girl at a Justin Bieber meet and greet. There’s nothing I can do about it but I’ve never not been able to stop.
Guidetogay.com has established a group on the site for the many many many Anderson fans in our community, which you can join here. The silver Fox's new series is scheduled to premiere on September 12 in syndication throughout the USA, no word yet on pick up in other global territories.
Until then, the rest of us will have to just do with his appearances on CNN.
