The story hasn't been confirmed via video or jilted lover, so Anderson Cooper's own admission will have to stand for now. Also, the fact that he looks and acts pretty gay also helps sell his story.

The CNN anchor, when speaking with The Daily Beast, told editor Andrew Sullivan, "The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."

Anderson then gave Sullivan permission to run with that quote, making this the least interesting coming-out story to hit the newsstands since Clay Aiken. He admitted he was gay? That's no fun!

Will this change my enjoyment of Anderson Cooper's AC 360 on CNN? Doubtful. I never liked the show, and don't think it will get better just because the host is openly homosexual.

But who knows?
