    I'm sorry...I still think those kiss pix are to "perfect" to be real. It's like their publicity stills. Too posed, perfect composition.

    Its like the paps were laying five feet away in semi tall grass and SNAP!

    EDIT: Why do I care?

    What would be the purpose of that? Not that I really care.

    It gives Cooper attention and generates some sympathy for him. How convenient that these pop up so close to his own coming out. More people watching Cooper = more people watching CNN.

    I feel like this is none of my business. Gosh - I'd hate (absolutely hate) people spying on me - tattling on me - taking my picture when I went anywhere - trying to catch me looking down or scratching my nose - or going to lunch with co-workers, what-have-you.

    In fact, I had a sock (idiot) right here on R.J. contact my b.f. to suggest I was a cheat - my pictures too revealing - etc, etc, etc. And I'm just a private citizen!

    I hear ya. I never understood why people dig other people's drama. Brad/Angelina/Jen, Lindsey, Britney, Whitney, Michael...Gag. Hell, they'll even make shit up and stir with Jockbod. Who's to say the same type of people aren't stirring shit, right before AC's rumored wedding...if that is true either!

    We've become the TMZ generation. Long ago it was The Enquirer and only a few select low lives would read that. But TMZ and other such shows have taken celebrity gossip mainstream.

    People dig into others lives because they are bored with their own, have nothing exciting happening and are jealous. That's basically why. If your busy doing your own thing you wouldnt care.
    I know I dont, Plus anything I see on commercial TV, the web etc I rarely believe anyway so much manipulation and deception in reporting for commercial gain.

    oh, that's gotta be an icy ice household indeed.

    If I was Anderson, I'd kick his ass to the curb and then go take a swin in my money pit, cuz im rich and attractive....and revel in the fact I come from a wealthy and important family.

    It is none of our business, however, I do wonder if the first photos are more than 3 years old.

    Yup.
    This relationship is about commerce - not luv.

    Rich famous older man buys hot younger man.

    If it works for them - that's their business.
    But it sure as hell ain't true love or anything like it.

    I can think of a reason for all of this. Maybe they have an open relationship but AC doesn't want people to know. So maybe they faked outrage and a dramatic breakup and spread the word. Being openly gay wouldn't affect his CNN following but being in an open relationship might. Open relationships are still seen as taboo. It also could have angered some gay marriage activists who think an open relationship would be deemed as promiscuous and marketed by anti-gay activists as gays wanting the benefits of marriage without the commitment.

    This is TOTALLY hypothetical.
