Anderson Cooper out of the closet

I understand that this announcement may inspire gay youth, and that is praiseworthy. But--and this isn't going to be popular--I find it sad that he felt forced to come out when all indications point to the fact that he wanted to keep his own sexuality private. It's sickening how so many people--both straight and gay--love to speculate on the sexuality of others, when it really is nobody's business but their own.

Famous people usually choose to be famous and know what happens when you become famous. Good for AC. Besides having the best hair on television, he has a great smile, lives in a cool firehouse, is impeccably dressed always...I hate him!

Don't forget, his mother is a flawless diva.

Good for him, though. I don't think he needed to really say anything, but I know that I'm not a fan of having pink elephants around me everywhere I go. When you go out of your way to not talk about your sexuality, then it just becomes silly.

I've never been much of a fan of his journalistic approach. He seems so into himself...

Anderson clearly has a huge ego, but he was the one journalist who ventured in and stayed in New Orleans when our government led by George Bush, DIck Cheney, and Karl Rove did not give a second thought to the people left to fend for themselves in that city. I will never forget that Anderson along with Harry Connick Jr. embarrassed the Bush Administration into sending the coast guard help to save thousands of people in that city.

    • Something just occurred to me recently during all this Marlena, Kayla, and Kate "dying" nonsense on DAYS that, really BFTD has absolutely run amok in the past few years, particuarly at DAYS, where literally no death sticks thanks to Rolf's zombie shot. So, I went on here to find a thread about it, but was surprised to not see anything specific (at least in recent years, so apologies if I'm rehashing something I've forgotten about!) I put to you: what were some of the best, and worst back from the dead stories on soaps for you? Additionally, if anyone has any records of what some of the earliest known stories of a previously-established character coming back from the dead, I'd love to know more. I assume this was more common on radio, where recasts could be more easily camouflaged from the audience sans visual. It just struck me that, particularly in the 60s and 70s, soaps seemed loath to have characters return from the dead, even when that death happened off-screen. It's largely from the 80s onward, what with stars seeking their fortune in prime time, and coming back to daytime if that attempt goes belly up.
    • Ooooo   I think for me this week it's been... EAST NEW YORK Season 1 YOUNGER Season 4 (reaching the episode I saw first for the first time with context hehe) FAMILY KARMA Season 3 WILL Season 1
    • The whole storyline actually.   But...tbf they don't do enough with what they have now.  After all where did Noah and Allie go?

    • Pretty sure the show has enough extraneous young white people doing nothing.
