In case you were curious about how polyamorous relationships work in practice, especially when a child is involved, Anderson Cooper got up close and personal with a triad on his show. Okay, follow me here: Jaiya Ma and Jon Hanauer have been together since they met at Tantric Yoga teacher training 10 years ago. At some point, Jaiya brought another man into the relationship, but things ended with a bad breakup. Jaiya’s tendency was to “connect” post-breakup, while Jon’s was to “retreat.” So, instead of breaking up, Jon encouraged Jaiya to find someone else. Eventually, she met Ian Ferguson in dance class and they had an instant connection. Jaiya became pregnant with Ian’s baby. Now the three of them live together with two-year-old Eamon. Interestingly, Jon (not the biological father of Eamon) does a good portion of the child care. You can watch an additional clip of Anderson’s interview with them here. Do I smell a sitcom here?

Sigh. In recent days, some of you have expressed a lack of understanding, an annoyance even, with my obsession with Courtney Stodden, super sexy sensual teen bride. While I think there are many legitimate reasons to watch Court’s every move — her Twitter account alone is filled with important grammar lessons! — I believe this Anderson Cooper segment alone is all the proof I need that Courtney Stodden is a hot topic worthy of coverage on The Frisky.

Anderson Cooper Gets A Spray Tan With Snooki

Anderson Cooper is trying to be the next Oprah, or at least the new Ellen, with his talk show. For the first episode on Monday, he sat down for a tearful talk with Amy Winehouse’s family. But for the second, he went to get a spray tan with Snooki of “Jersey Shore.” “Oh my god, you’re pale,” says Snooki, upon seeing Anderson for the first time. “That’s scary. Don’t worry, this isn’t gonna hurt.”

“It might hurt my dignity,” responds Anderson. Continue reading

Anderson Cooper Cracks Up On Air Over Gerard Depardieu’s Urination Incident

This video combines four of my favorite things: silver fox Anderson Cooper, awesomely bad puns, the mocking of a celebrity who pissed themselves on a plane, and a newscaster cracking up on air. Last night, during a segment called “RidicuList,” Anderson just couldn’t contain his laughter after spouting out a long list of puns about Gerard Depardieu, who apparently peed all over himself on a plane from Paris to Dublin when a flight attendant told him he couldn’t get up to use the bathroom. “So Depardieu created his own little jet stream,” said Anderson, reading the script. “Or as the French say ‘oui oui.’ [Other passengers] saw a actual thespian actually thes peein’ … They should thank their lucky stars it wasn’t Depar-two.” Anderson then scrunched his face and dissolved into hysterics. “Sorry, this has actually never happened to me. You see this sort of thing on YouTube and you don’t think this kind of thing will happen to you.” No worries, Anderson, we like! [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Rachel Maddow Says Gay News Anchors Have A Responsibility To Come Out

Rachel Maddow is awesome. One of the many reasons I think this is because she is openly gay and often gives shout-outs to her partner, Susan Mikula. In an interview with The Guardian that ran yesterday, Rachel talked a little bit about being one of the few out gay news anchors. She said, “I’m sure other people in the business have considered reasons why they’re doing what they’re doing, but I do think that if you’re gay you have a responsibility to come out.” Which has many folks thinking that she was pointing fingers at the anchor whose sexuality is often the subject of speculation—Anderson Cooper.

Last night, Rachel took to her blog to clear things up. Keep reading »
