Anderson Cooper Comes Out; Alec Baldwin Quits Twitter; Happy 26th Birthday Lindsay Lohan
07.02.12 by Chris
Anderson Cooper confirmed what most have suspected — that the CNN news anchor is gay. For years Cooper dodged questions about his sexuality. Cooper came out in a letter to friend Andrew Sullivan, a writer for The Daily Beast.
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.
Earlier this year, Cooper was ranked number six in Out Magazine's Power List, despite not publicly acknowledging his sexual orientation. As The Wrap points out, Cooper's announcement makes him the only openly gay news anchor on television.
Alec Baldwin really hates tabloids and the paparazzi. If his recent run-ins with photogs didn't convince you of that then maybe what he told Vanity Fair what he wants to do to TMZ boss Harvey Levin will.
Baldwin told the magazine:
I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him and I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes.
It was TMZ that leaked the 2007 voice mail Baldwin left to his then-11-year-old daughter, calling her a pig.
But maybe marriage will change the actor. Just days after tying the knot, Baldwin deactivated his Twitter account, signing off with the message, "It's been fun."
Happy birthday to Lindsay Lohan, who turns 26 today. The actress celebrated her birthday early over the weekend partying at the West Hollywood nightclub, but sources say Lohan partied sober. "There was a ton of alcohol at Lindsay's table, however she didn't appear to be drinking," said a witness. Could it be that Lohan has found wisdom with age?!
