“Oh, Honey…”: Anderson Cooper Gives Us Our Homo Moment

posted by on November 5 at 9:39 AM

Of course we’re all shaking our heads about Prop 8, but gays, rejoice! Yesterday Anderson Cooper appeared via live feed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. After riffing on the importance of dancing in the election, the “Ellen factor,” and fun with split screen, Coop breaks from his television character and fags out for a second on the Real Housewives of Atlanta—especially NeNe. With two magic words, Anderson Cooper outs himself. The good stuff starts at 3:00.

Er, or... he expertly strokes the most consumerist slice of his fan base, handy for his next salary negotiation with the network, depending.

I DIDN'T know that, thanks!

I did however know that every time one of you sloggers puts a little mini-text at the bottom of your posts you shrink the entire rest of the slog.

@1 Agh, I know. The Slog servers are so overworked right now that I can't even make the change!

Damn, I thought you meant that, because of Proposition 8's loss, Anderson Cooper really "outed himself."

Re: the skipping to parts of a youtube clip...not all vids are like that. Just this one. And your link just goes to the main vid-it doesnt explain your strategy. Please explain.

The URL is modified with an anchor:

Did anyone else giggle a little bit to themselves when Ellen said, "Ah ... fun with boxes!" ... ?

Sometimes I'm so juvenile I even surprise myself.

Even better: he clearly hasn't even watched the show, since her name is pronounced knee-knee. NeNe has such an intrinsic pull for us mos that he only needs to watch the opening credits to fall madly in love with her. NeNe 2012!!

The way he was pretending to look at Alice makes him Jan.
