Anderson Cooper officially comes out of the closet, “The fact is, I’m gay.”

Anderson Cooper has officially come out of the closet. The CNN anchor wrote a letter to political blogger and friend Andrew Sullivan, and it was published today.

He wrote: “I’ve always believed that who a reporter votes for, what religion they are, who they love, should not be something they have to discuss publicly. As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn’t matter.”

He admits that “remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something.”

He insists that’s not the case. “The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” says Cooper.

The CNN host emphasizes that his role as a journalist supersedes his public discussion of his sexuality.

He explains, “Since my early days as a reporter, I have worked hard to accurately and fairly portray gay and lesbian people in the media – and to fairly and accurately portray those who for whatever reason disapprove of them.”

Cooper continues, “It is not part of my job to push an agenda, but rather to be relentlessly honest in everything I see, say and do. I’ve never wanted to be any kind of reporter other than a good one, and I do not desire to promote any cause other than the truth.”

Anyone out there surprised by this news?

If George Clooney’s girlfriend is holding out for a ring, she might not want to hold her breath!

George Clooney was recently interviews by CNN’s Piers Morgan, and he made one thing clear…he does not want to get married again.

“I hate to blow your whole news story, but I was married,” George told ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ on Friday. “Yeah, so I’ve proven how good I was at it, and I just … I’m allowed one,” the 48-year-old actor-philanthropist said referring to his marriage to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993.

“Elisabetta had no idea he was going to say that,” a friend of the Italian beauty tells Pop Eater. “She thought she was going to be the girl who would finally get George to settle down and put a ring on it. She was totally surprised.”

Even the star’s dad, Nick, who was in the same interview, seemed surprised by his son’s answer on plans to walk down the aisle again, telling George, “I want you to think about that. I want you to think about … we’ve been married … Nina [George’s mom] and I’ve been married 51 years.”

However, friends tell Pop Eater despite what George might say in public, Elisabetta won’t take no for an answer. “If he doesn’t ask her to marry him soon she will ask him,” an insider tells me. “And if he says no, well there are plenty more fish in the ocean.”

There may be other fish in the sea – but I doubt she’ll find anyone like George!

I wonder if he ever will marry – or if he just plays up this whole playboy image.
