Leave it to Roseanne Barr to take Thanksgiving and flip it on its head, using the holiday as an opportunity to expound upon all the things she is completely unthankful for. The 61-year-old comedian and actress is in the midst of a 24-hour Twitter rant against everything from capitalism to the people involved with her new, apparently soon-to-be non-existent, sitcom with negative commentary on such wide-ranging targets as Anderson Cooper, capitalism, Walmart and Oprah Winfrey — all while confessing “Yes, I do have mental health issues.” (Strangely, she seems to support fellow celebrity meltdown artist Alec Baldwin.)

It’s a tangled web TV can weave and this post is about as good an example as I can think of. What had been rumored in Big Brother forums for a while was verified when it was announced last week that former winner Rachel Reilly’s sister, Elissa Slater, would be cast for season 15. While her relationship to the polarizing champ made most of the headlines, it turns out that sister Elissa has been on TV before. During a May, 2012 episode of Anderson Live about bridezillas, Slater won a trip to Mexico (if America’s votes have much influence – this could hurt her for sure). Watch Elissa’s past TV experience and let us know if you think that being Rachel’s sister (she says she doesn’t intend on hiding that fact if she’s asked) and having won a big prize via TV previously will hurt her chances in the game.
Andersom Cooper interviewed Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland man who rescued the young women who had been imprisoned in his neighbor’s house for over a decade, and it was amazing.
According to reports, Anderson Cooper has gotten a call from NBC producers about joining The Today Show in hopes that he can help with their dwindling ratings. Producers want Anderson to sign on to the show and replace current host Matt Lauer by the end of this year and are confident in his potential. Matt allegedly isn’t so thrilled with their choice.
Madonna was on hand at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards to present the organization’s prestigious Vito Russo Award to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who came out last year. (Film historian Vito Russo, who passed away in 1990, was one of the first in the industry to recognize and raise awareness of the importance of how the LGBT community is portrayed in the media.) Madonna did not disappoint with her speech, nor did she disappoint with her attire, as she wore a slightly modified boy scout uniform to present the award. Keep reading for a video and a transcript of the whole thing!
Anderson Cooper spent the weekend on the coast of Portugal shooting a segment for an upcoming episode of 60 Minutes, and while the scene was beautiful, the damage it did to his eyes was not. The talk show host was left blind and in pain after the glare of the sunlight off the ocean burned his retinas!
These days, it seems like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is everywhere. The show beat out the Republican National Convention in the ratings, South Park already did a send up, and, Tina Fey says she and the 30 Rock writers watch the show, Rosie O’Donnell says she wants to buy the family a house.
The Silver Fox has proven that he can also be a wolf in sheep’s clothing as Anderson Cooper absolutely obliterated former The View co-host Star Jones in regards to disparaging comments she made about his coming out. Read Star’s original comments, see Cooper’s visceral reaction and get Star’s twitter reply that only makes her look worse.
When pictures emerged of Anderson Cooper’s lover lovin’ up lovingly on another man in a park in New York City defenders of the Silver Fox were thrown for a loop. Peeps wanted some Ben Maisani blood and were linking The Giggler to Bravo’s main man Andy Cohen. Not so fast folks! In the following video gorilla shot by some foreign dude hiding out behind bushes and totally stalking, we see Maisooper together and joined by Andy Cohen and Kelly Ripa. Kelly Ripa!?!
Recently uncloseted Anderson Cooper has reportedly broken things off with fiance Ben Maisani after photos of Maisani kissing another man in a public New York City park showed up online on Sunday. But just before the photos were published, Anderson and Ben flew to Croatia for a romantic getaway. Now Ben is gone and Anderson has been left to suffer through his heartbreak
alone with Watch What Happens Live! host Andy Cohen! Oh, and Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos?
