I knew I’d have to be careful right from the start before it had a chance to get out of hand.” Maisani and Cooper have that in common; Anderson Cooper also rarely talks about his personal life.
In fact, he did not come out of the closet until 2012, in part because he wanted to keep his personal life to himself.
Cohen and Cooper will bring their friendship to CNN annual New Year’s eve show.
The event, which has developed a cult following, was originally hosted by Cooper and Kathy Griffin.
After Roy Moore’s loss to Doug Jones, a tweet from Cooper was posted in which he called President Trump a “pathetic loser.” According to CNN, this tweet did not come from Cooper and Twitter was working to “secure” his account.
This social media hacking put Cooper’s name in the headlines — and seems to have reignited some interest in his significant other.
He was also the owner of the Sugarland Nightclub in Brooklyn, but unfortunately that bar closed in 2014.
“We were set up on a blind date, we had a phone call to set up the date.
I was a young reporter at ABC, he was at CBS and I knew within 45 seconds I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen,” said Cooper.
His second is another gay bar called Bedlam Bar & Lounge, located on 40 Avenue C.
And in 2013, he opened up his third gay bar, Atlas Social Club, which is located on 753 9th Ave.
