Anderson Cooper Talks Coming Out, Temporary Blindness On 'The View': VIDEO

AndersonCooperView

Anderson Cooper and the girls from ABC's The View covered a whole host of topics during his brief visit to the morning show today. Among them: temporarily going blind in Portugal, what he tells his mother when he's in dangerous, war-torn lands where they kill people, how he feels now that he's come out and why he's sweating another New Year's Eve extravaganza with perennially controversial countdown host Kathy Griffin.

Watch the gals and Cooper gab it up AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. @ICEBLOO= people like you were badgering him to come out and when he finally does you still cry sour grapes. Damned if he did, damned if he didn't. Get over it already.

    "He had NO RISK attached to coming out. NO RISK." Actually he did. As a reporter who covers stories in countries that are less hospitable to "the gays" he would have been a target. You need not look very far back to see what happens when a reporter covers a story in a country where certain standards are different from our own: Lara Logan.

    Icebloo: what have you done to further the cause besides throw bitchy arrows from your keyboard? It's time you put up or shut up.

  2. MARRY ME! (Ageist Remark): My ceiling is usually 30 Anderson but for you there will never be a ceiling! I'm 22 and will be your twinkyotter any day!

  3. Icebloo: did you not watch the video? The risk was actually huge, he traveled to places as a journalist that kill gay people! Reporting from some of these places is dangerous enough without painting a target on yourself as a famous gay reporter! Plus, all journalist try to keep their personal lives somewhat secret so that it doesn't affect their work. You usually don't really learn much until they are a lot older and moving away from hard news.

  4. Why can't we as gay people support other accomplished gay people who are openly out and who openly help our cause? Do you realize how many wonderful segments Anderson has devoted to combating homophobia on his show? Let's please support one another as gays.

  5. @Icebloo: You still haven't answered who is holding a gun to your head to read AC postings and take time to write your well-known views. Perhaps we can get Obama to appoint AC to SCOTUS just for you;-)
