Anderson Cooper's Boyfriend Caught Kissing Another Man & Breaks Our Hearts (VIDEO)
Anderson & Ben on a happier dayRemember when Anderson Cooper came out and told us all he's gay and we were all like, "Yeah, Anderson, we KNOW." In a loving way, of course. Well, sad news. Anderson's boyfriend Ben Maisani has been caught kissing another man! Oh nooooo! Ben was photographed giving some tall, dark stranger a very open-mouthed kiss at a public park. Ben! How could you? Cheating on America's sweetheart.
And this just a couple weeks before Labor Day, when Anderson and Ben were rumored to be getting married. No word from Mr. Cooper so far. His Twitter has been silent since Saturday, when he asked, "Curious to know what you think of #Romney's choice for VP?" I'm curious to know what Anderson thinks of Ben's choice for vice boyfriend!
Okay, yes, that was an extremely cheesy line. I am ashamed.
Anyway, when I first heard about the story, I tried to rationalize it. (I'm going through the stages of grief on Anderson's behalf.) Most of the gay men I know greet each other by kissing on the mouth. It's not a big deal. But this is more than a hello peck. And the photos reveal that they were just sitting and talking intimately for a while.
Maybe they have an open-ish relationship? But even if they did, Ben must know that being the boyfriend of America's most famous gay celeb would mean a lot less privacy for him. No more canoodling with friends in the park!
What the hell is going on? It's like KStew all over again. Is kissing really cheating? Was this just a "momentary indiscretion" or evidence of a full-blown affair? Will Anderson forgive Ben -- and is Ben even sorry or is this just a very mean and public way of saying he wants out of the relationship? Ugh, this is such a bummer. I so hope this isn't what it looks like. But Anderson Twitter radio silence this morning isn't a good sign.
UPDATE: Anderson just tweeted his congrats to Candy Crowley for getting tapped to moderate a presidential debate. He says he's on vacation now. Hmmm.

What do you think -- is this the end for Anderson and Ben?
