Anderson Cooper managed to keep the details about his sexuality and his love life under wraps for years. But just one month after coming out as gay, the 45-year-old newsman is now watching his personal life unravel in the public eye, much to his chagrin. It appears that the CNN news anchor is living a parallel life to Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson, who was humiliated when pics of longtime girlfriend Kristin Stewart cheating with Snow White & the Huntsmen director Rupert Sanders were released. Over the weekend, the Daily Mail published photos of Cooper's longtime boyfriend, Ben Maisani, kissing another man in a New York City park. Maisani, who owns the gay hotspot Eastern Bloc in NYC, has been in a relationship with the silver fox for several years and shares a townhouse in Manhattan with Cooper. It was just last month that Cooper issued the following statement about his sexuality: "The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be more happy." So far Cooper has remained mum with not so much as a Tweet since the photos of Maisani and his mystery man were released.
