Anderson Cooper and Benjamin MaisaniAt this point, the famed CNN anchor essentially lives in the limelight. Many people are unaware that he has been in a relationship with a non-celebrity man since 2009. Benjamin Maisani has quite a different career from Anderson Cooper – after all, he is the owner of a gay bar!
The two bought a historic Connecticut property together, though they have since called it quits. Cooper told the Daily Mail in an interview,“Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago. We are still family to each other, and love each other very much.”
