Anderson Cooper and NeNe Leakes truly heart each other. Their romance began a year ago, during the first season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Anderson appeared on “Ellen” and said, “I like to keep abreast of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ I don’t even know where to begin with NeNe. You have to sort of watch to enjoy the fullness of NeNe.” He motioned towards his chest.Sparks flew. Shortly after, in an interview with E!, NeNe said, “I would just talk to him and keep it real. Let’s just get down and dirty and talk about whatever. I’d wear a nice little top, since he’s talking about my chest. I don’t know if he’s had any brown sugar.” [E! Online]
Then, nothing, until last week, when NeNe rekindled the flames on PopWatch. “I do watch Anderson Cooper. I love him a lot,” she declared. “He’s very handsome. Sometimes I listen to the news and sometimes I’m just looking at him. I’ve heard that he loves me, so Anderson if you’re looking, mwah, mwah. Boo-boo.” [Pop Watch]
A few days later, she appeared on CNN, where the interviewer showed her a photo of Bradley Cooper and Anderson Cooper and asked her to pick one. “Anderson Cooper. He’s my baby,” she cooed.
What’s Anderson’s response to NeNe’s overtures? “Maybe we shall meet one day.” Well, a girl can dream.
