NEW YORK CITY - Anderson Cooper the latest well-known celebrity to come out of the 'closet' has just announced that he will be getting married over the Labor Day holidays.
Cooper stated that he and his future husband, wife [pick one] will be exchanging wedding vows after being partners and playing 'house' for over two years.
According to Bedroom Pillow Talk's Carolina Chipotle, Anderson's honeymoon participant has been identified as Ben "Benny Boy" Maisani, owner of The Eastern Building Blocks Gay Bar in New York City.
The couple apparently met at a surprise birthday party for Kelly Ripa that was given by Queen Latifah and Wanda Sykes, two noted lesbianites from the Left Coast.
Cooper who is 45, has remarked that he really wanted to get married on Valentine's Day, but both he and "Benny Boy" who is 39, have agreed that neither one wants to wait that long to enter into wedded bliss.
Anderson's 88-year-old mother Gloria Vanderbilt (the designer of Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans and Vanderbilt Push-Up Bras) has said that she is thrilled with the news and admitted that she is as happy as a leopard at a gazelle convention.
SIDENOTE. Bedroom Pillow Talk is reporting that GOP mouthpiece Rush Limbaugh has said that he definitely wants to see Anderson Cooper and Benny Maisani's birth certificates as soon as humanly possible.
