anderson cooper & his boyfriend Ben Massani, seriously they do look good together!!  And since Anderson grew up pretty strange with his brother (committed suicide), father (that one also committed suicide, I believe) and Anderson was hanging with his mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, at Studio 54 (known for the piles of cocaine on the tables starting at age 12, I think he turned out ok considering!!

Carter Cooper committed suicide at age 23 in 1988. He jumped from his mom GLORIA VANDERBILT'S penthouse ledge. She couldn't stop him. He had just broken up with his girlfriend. He was a writer. His brother is Anderson Cooper.
