The intrepid newsman came to CNN in 2001, after a stint at ABC News (and host of The Mole); he’s hosted his signature show, Anderson Cooper 360°, since 2003. From September 2011 through May of this year, Cooper also hosted a syndicated talk show called Anderson.

On today’s season premiere of the newly rebooted Anderson Live, host Anderson Cooper was chatting with guest host Kristin Chenoweth about what the pair had done over the summer, repectively, and Chenoweth brought up Cooper’s July reveal that he was gay. “I’ve always been out to my co-workers and stuff,” said Cooper. “It’s just not something I ever talked about it publicly because as a reporter I didn’t think it was appropriate—it didn’t seem like part of my job.”

Anderson Cooper comes out: 'The fact is, I'm gay'

Anderson-Cooper

CNN anchor and daytime talk show host Anderson Cooper has publicly declared he’s gay.

In discussing last week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story on the emerging trend of celebrities nonchalantly coming out of the closet, Cooper revealed his sexuality to Daily Beast blogger Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan emailed Cooper about the story, noting that public figures revealing their sexuality still matters, even if many are no longer startled by the news. The 45-year-old newsman has always been private about his personal life and has long been rumored to be gay.

“We still have pastors calling for the death of gay people, bullying incidents and suicides among gay kids, and one major political party dedicated to ending the basic civil right to marry the person you love,” Sullivan wrote. “So these ‘non-events’ are still also events of a kind; and they matter. The visibility of gay people is one of the core means for our equality.”

Anderson Cooper apologizes for Dyngus Day giggle fit, gets asked to become the Pussy Willow Prince -- VIDEO

Anderson Cooper added himself to his RidicuList segment last night after he was chastised for breaking out in a fit of giggles while describing Dyngus Day, a  Polish-American holiday, during Tuesday’s AC360.

Cooper clarified that he didn’t put Dyngus Day itself on the RidicuList, but rather anyone who missed out on the holiday. He also explained that the “This is so stupid” remark he made during the giggle episode was directed at his inability to hold it together, not the holiday.

“I said it was stupid because it’s stupid that a grown man giggles like a 13-year-old girl meeting Justin Bieber for the first time,” he said, drawing the same comparison he used in August after breaking out in laughter while discussing Gerard Depardieu’s airplane urination incident.

To prove just how seriously he took his hysteria, Cooper invited Eddy Dobosiewicz, the co-founder of Buffalo’s Dyngus Day Celebration, to his show to comment.

“Although you have upset many, many people here in Western New York and throughout the land, we accept your apology, Mr. Cooper,” said Dobosiewicz, who then extended an invitation to Cooper to join in the Dyngus Day festivities next year, and asked him to become the first ever Pussy Willow Prince.
