Anderson Coopers Says He’s Gay. Yeah, AND?

Anderson Cooper


Here’s the thing.  I wish we lived in a world where this wasn’t even talked about, but we do, so CNN’s Anderson Cooper felt the need to tell us all what we already knew a million years ago that he is in fact, gay.  He emailed reporter, Andrew Sullivan via The Daily Beast on the subject of his sexuality vs. privacy and professionalism.

“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.

I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues. In a perfect world, I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.


Being a journalist, traveling to remote places, trying to understand people from all walks of life, telling their stories, has been the greatest joy of my professional career, and I hope to continue doing it for a long time to come. But while I feel very blessed to have had so many opportunities as a journalist, I am also blessed far beyond having a great career.

I love, and I am loved.

In my opinion, the ability to love another person is one of God’s greatest gifts, and I thank God every day for enabling me to give and share love with the people in my life. I appreciate your asking me to weigh in on this, and I would be happy for you to share my thoughts with your readers. I still consider myself a reserved person and I hope this doesn’t mean an end to a small amount of personal space. But I do think visibility is important, more important than preserving my reporter’s shield of privacy.”

All this does is make me love Andy even more, and I wish that no one cared.  But they do.

I Know Who Should Play Casey Anthony in the Movie…(As Seen on CNN News)

Casey Anthony
Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano. Now, I really have nothing against Alyssa. I’ve been wracking my brain to figure out who Casey Anthony sort of resembles. Granted, Alyssa is SUPER-gorgeous, but there are similarities (the smile?) and we all know Hollywood makes (ALLEGED?) everyday killers much more attractive on film.

Years ago, Alyssa played
Amy Fisher, remember? It was one of about three television movies about the “Long Island Lolita“, and I liked hers so much more than Drew Barrymore’s portrayal of Fisher who is now a pornstar AND on Celebrity Rehab. (Ick, by the way.)

What do you guys think? Do you have any other actresses in mind for this inevitable piece of crap movie?




**UPDATE:  Excuse me while I try to catch my breath, but CNN Newsroom just showed this very piece–which was originally posted April 1, 2009 regarding who I thought should play Casey Anthony in the inevitable TV movie.  Seriously, you guys. I’m wigging.** ~ Julia
