Anderson Cooper Is Kelly Ripa’s Top ChoiceBy: Amanda Crum - August 21, 2012
Anderson Cooper is Kelly Ripa’s number one pick for the new “Live!” co-host, so of course rumors are now flying that he’ll be joining her in September when the new season begins. And while producers have announced that they’ll reveal Ripa’s newest partner in crime on the 4th, some are already predicting the silver fox will take the honors.
Cooper has a lot on his plate, however, as he’s dealing with rampant rumors that his longtime boyfriend, Ben Maisani, was busted kissing another man recently. Cooper has hinted that he wants to marry Maisani over Labor Day weekend, but hasn’t spoken publicly about the cheating scandal.
He also sat down for an interview with biggest and most beautiful star in the world Beyonce, who spoke about World Humanitarian Day and doing something that impacts the lives of others.
Cooper seems pretty busy with AC360–his CNN talk show–so it’s highly unlikely he’ll be pulling co-host duties with Ripa. They’re just BFFs, as is evidenced by the photo he tweeted of the two of them on vacation.
