Smiling with "Mama", while having the last laugh!

Some weeks ago we posted a FreakSpeakers' exclusive of the exterior rendering and photographs of Anderson Cooper's remodeled penthouse apartment. We had all kind of reactions, from interior decorating tips, scorn, claims of "how unreliable" this blog was and how we were always making "sh*t up". Some even went to an extent to start an email campaign to "John" Klein (BTW its Jon for Jonathan) in order for them to "stop the evil blog" . Others claimed to have e-mailed Anderson Cooper who gladly and immediately "set the record straight and denied the info" (YEAH, AND MY GRANDMOTHER IS A VIRGIN!).

But other reactions were completely BRILLIANT! particularly from an anon commenter :

I can't help but to LMAO when I see the blatent ignorance of those that sniff around this blog for info, yet are first to criticize Chris's findings. Like a block of CO2 (dry ice), it barely takes a thread of imagination, a touch of recall and a speck of intelligence to realize that Christiane is at the top of her game. Some have it, others don't. The repeat customer gig is a simple rule to follow for continued satisfaction. Add in the fact that those guys were selected to assist in the Katrina ravaged region and it all makes perfect sense. Great find Chris! You're good!!!!!

Key words: CO2 and The repeat customer gig is a simple rule to follow for continued satisfaction. Add in the fact that those guys were selected to assist in the Katrina ravaged region and it all makes perfect sense.

So the veil lifts!

This anon got it COMPLETELY RIGHT! and the information was corroborated by the premier celebrity real estate blog The Real Estalker one of the most trusted sources of real estate information in the real estate business and media publications like the LA Times. MAMA KNOWS HER GAME! and its referenced as a reliable source.

Mama, like our anon, did her homework and independently confirmed our story. So here the recap:

1. CO2- The Code identifying the project within the architectural firm.

2. repeat customer gig - Do you remember the photo spread Anderson Cooper did of his old loft for In Style magazine where he talks about his good friend the BRILLIANT architect Andrew Kotchen (and BTW he is married with kids, so don't start making up crap) and that you all keep? Well surprise, surprise... he designed the new apartment.

3. those guys were selected to assist in the Katrina ravaged region -
Actor Brad Pitt, far right, with Global Green president Matt Petersen (far left), and Lehigh alums Matthew Berman (left center) and Andrew Kotchen (next to Pitt).

My favorite part! Kotchen and his business partner have been ALL OVER THE NEWS, because they won the rebuilding competition of the lower 9th ward sponsored by Brad Pitt.


4. Were the images legal?
OF COURSE! they were taken by the firm. How I got them? .... no comments!

5. Why didn't you disclose or provided a link?
Simple common sense and by the time we got hold of the images the portfolio wasn't finished, and the information available and provided was waaaay too sensitive, and contrary to the interests and safety of Mr. Cooper. We draw lines, you know! Thankfully the information and images are no longer available. So yes, IT WAS OUR EXCLUSIVE!

Cindy, are you ok? sorry but we are still laughing!
and P.S. apologies accepted.


And now, a little architectural porn:

And we all know that I loved the Weimaraner :D

Didn't doubt you for a second. Course, I know stuff, hee hee.

Plus I hope that Anderson came in and dumped piles of his shit everywhere. That place is BARREN. I'm sure he had TONS of stuff to throw everywhere. And some paint. Yeah. In like... COLOR. That white hurts my eyes!!

Last time I mentioned that the place looked extremely unwelcoming, like he was saying "come on in, but don't sit on anything, and don't stay long... never mind, just GET OUT!!" Uh, yeah... looking at the photos again... and I still think that.

Course... stalker boi hasn't been in THIS place... apparently when he toured the other one, Anderson had just been there, and "had just taken a shower, and his wet towel was hanging up." EW!!! You're gross, stalker boi. Why were you checking out his BATHROOM?? Freak. I bet you flopped on his bed, too. YICK YICK YICK!!!!

As my friend with Tourette's would say... schmuckitty-duckity-fuckity-dickwads! towards those people who called Christiane a liar. Of course, he does lots of other neat things, like calling me a lesbian, and smacking me in the head. Or screaming "the knights that say NI!!". He's a riot....

(and yes, he really has Tourette's, not like that horrible "Tourette's Guy" who has his own website where he acts like a jackass.)

Anonymous said...

guess that stalker boi has the answer if his previous place was a mess. You can ask him next time you see him -)

Anonymous said...

Excuse me, but hasn't the better part of this week been spent talking about stalkers and how frightened Anderson seems to be and maybe Anderson can use his privacy, and here you a posting pictures of the inside of his apartment? Why don't you give out the address as well? That was posted on another site so maybe that doesn't matter. Of course, these pictures were taken with Anderson's permission.

I know, if you don't like it here, you can leave.

newsjunkie said...

Well, these pics were posted previously and then got slammed all over the internet. I noticed on Mama's site, she listed the street. I personally, thought that was idiotic and said so.

Notice... it remains, now doesn't it?

Some of his overzealous fans know the exact address... scary thought. I said a couple weeks ago that Anderson probably felt safer in Iraq or Afganistan or even Ramadi than he does in New York. And after some of the crazy shit I've looked at... no wonder that poor man is a nervous wreck. He really needs to drop off the radar IMO. CNN, of course, would never let that happen, he's their star anchor. I have no advice on this one, and usually I have advice coming to me quite easily.

Once again, a renewed passion to find the cause for mental illness... yep.

And anon 6:37? I'm pretty sure I saw him this morning. I'm not hard to find. Apparently does not have the balls to approach me... either that or he is very smart and knows he better not. Or, of course, I could be seeing someone that looks just like him in a car with PA plates who was staring at me. Ooooh, I'm so scared. NOT.

stay for as long as you can handle it -) But if you can read, read the post over till you get it

anon 6:37 said...

@newsjunkie, I was kidding. Did you see him in new york city or elsewhere?

Anonymous said...

This anon 6:46: I gave some further thought what I just posted. Yes, I saw the pics on a previous post from here.

I've seen his exact address posted somewhere on the internet, I came across it quite by accident, not looking for it.

But I started thinking, I assume Anderson did give permission for these pictures to be taken? And he is afraid of stalkers? Maybe it's me, but seems like mixed signals he gives to me, maybe he doesn't realize how many people know exactly where he lives but, I don't know, if I was afraid of stalkers, I may be hesitant to let out pictures of my place, but that is me, and I guess he doesn't think like I do.

newsjunkie said...

Not New York. I'm talking outside my HOUSE. I live in Jersey, stalker boi only lives 78 miles from me. Not much of a drive...

Or, you know, I could just be paranoid and thinking I saw someone that looked JUST LIKE HIM. Uh huh.

Oh... and to that person that said I'm an overzealous fan and I'm doing this for Anderson to notice me?

GO FUCK YOURSELF.

I feel frightfully behind here. This cyberstalking (which, BTW, is against the law in NY) and real life stalking has apparently been going on for YEARS. A lot of the crazy CRAZY sites have been taken down. I cannot believe what I'm seeing, really.

If someone thinks I'M an overzealous fan, they have another think coming. Anonymous tipster is MY name. Like I said... hell no, I wouldn't want him to know. But, my name is all over the blog, so, since certain people read Freaks... I'm pretty sure they're well aware of what I'm up to. Oh, well. I don't care.

Plus I wish he'd change his name, move out of the state, and um, let's see... become invisible. Yeah, that would do it.

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:02, I have the same questions. Anderson seems very private in general, so it's weird that he doesn't mind having his apartment photos on a blog. If he consented because these pictures were going to be in another In Style-like shoot, it would make some sense.

ivy said...

7:02
I think his place was featured in a magazine, photos included. I heard Thomas Roberts place was or going to be featured somewhere, so it's not that unusual. I'm sure there are more rooms in AC's apartment then are shown and I don't seeany personal belonings scattered around, so obviously the purpose of the photos was to showcase design and not the content of his refrigerator. As for stalking, the problem is when the address is known. This blog never posted or mentioned his address anywhere. I'm sure only the lazy among his long-time (and not so long-time) overzealous fans doesn't know his address already and for a while, I heard about knowing it from "somewhere on internet" more then once. So THAT is an issue, not what the design of his media room is.

Cindy did create a huge mess. She was all over the place. Peter had to delete the entire thread discussing the apartment.

When Anderson lived at that other loft, the address was all over the place. Wherever this news place is, no one knows, as it should be.

anonymousaba said...

Do stalkers have a problem holding down a job? It appears that's the case. Except for those in school (such as newsjunkie), every other able bodied human being ought to be doing something productive in their lives. Stalking Anderson is NOT a career. Harassing newsjunkie is not a viable job. He ought to take the gas he used to drive the 78 miles to her house and shove it back where it belongs.

Isn't stalker boi the same moron claiming he toured Anderson's old place? Hate to break it to him, but there was a RE rep at the front door for the Open House. He had to have an appt. ahead of showing up. When we sold our last place, our realtor did the same for us. Agents are not receiving 6% of the sale price of your home so they can allow every whackjob thru your front door. Property owners would be robbed blind if anyone could enter. Prospective buyers are checked BEFORE the open house. Surely AC's agents provided him that same courtesy.

newsjunkie said...

Who knows, anonymousaba. He could have made it all up, but that is a quote from some dumbshit post he made about it. He must have money SOMEWHERE, how else would he be able to go all over the place, including NOLA, in order to follow Anderson? The NOLA thing made me go, WHOA, you followed him WHERE? And took piles of pictures of it, apparently.

I've seen Anderson once and practically had my arm twisted to do so. It was not important to me to go, but hey, The Freaks had to be represented and I'm the only one who was not terrified to be photographed and plopped all over the internet. I was momentarily freaked out about well, walking up to the guy (shit, he IS Anderson Cooper, duh) but got over that pretty quick. He's just a normal guy. With a very high profile job and a zillion admirers. And a famous mother, and a pretty dog, and... I could keep going but you get the point. I would have freaked out at the prospect of meeting Larry King. Whatever!!!

And yeah. Stalker boi can shove it. Like I said though... it's not like he walked up to me and said something to my face so I can't be sure it was him. I don't think he has the balls for it.

"When Anderson lived at that other loft, the address was all over the place. Wherever this news place is, no one knows, as it should be."

I was under the impression this new place is in the same building but on the top floor instead of a lower floor that he had. Thought I read he bought the top floor in the same building.

And the glass shower... okay NO. To the watcher in the bedroom, it might be sexy for like five minutes, under whoever is in the shower leans over to scrub their butt. Not sexy anymore.

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:09,

Last year, The New York Daily News or the Post had an article about Anderson moving into a "penthouse" (12th floor to be exact)in the same building that was featured in the "InStyle" photo shoot. They talked to the building manager who said at the time the "penthouse" had nothing in it but a bookcase and was in the process of being remodeled. If the apartment that is featured here is the same one, then his address is still out there and he'd better be extra careful.

had to say it said...

Is it really possible to put Anderson and a glass shower together and it NOT be sexy?

Every man on the planet farts when peeing and does weird shit in the shower like singing to their bar of soap.

Seriously. Yes, it's possible that it's not sexy in a glass shower.

Anderson seems like too much of a clean freak to be peeing in the shower. And if he farts there, I'm sure he's got some outrageously expensive and fancy shower gel that will mask the odor.

I knew a guy who had a glass shower but the glass was thick and had designs in it and faced the outside. You could literally watch him showering while sitting in the backyard....now that could be sexy depending on who was in the shower!

BTW, doesn't that Cindy chick get posted on the 360 blog alot also?

@anon 8:25

You were asking about Cindy. Here's a short story for you (hopefully entertaining)

When photos were posted on this blog (which the mod of the other blog called “the crappy, little photos, illustrations”), some on that other blog became plain psychotic. When some anons suggested that the photos are real they started a campaign to get cnn to “clear this up” and "respect the fans". Otherwise “his dwindling audience will begin with me”. Cindy was the one to lead the crusade. Her and libbey were emailing AC, CNN, and 360 and “and Klein too!!” Then Cindy claimed ac emailed her back from his blackberry:

”This is what Anderson emailed me...
"I have not seen this website but any "photos" of my apartment are fake! Do you really think i would give permission to some random website to publish real photos of someplace I live? Life is too short to worry about this stuff, so I don't, but I find it unfortunate."
Guess that clears it all up!! This came straight from Anderson. He doesn't know them or their website!! LOL I KNEW IT!!”


She didn’t stop on that. ”So once again the freaks are proven to be liars!! Proven by none other than Anderson...” …. ”If you'll know one thing about me it is I DO NOT LIE...I thought I was helping to clear this up. Instead I get attacked! He emailed me!!! YES HE DID!! And those are his EXACT words...” ….”...It came straight from Anderson! And I really don't care if anyone else believes me! He said the pics are fake...so they are!!”

And they were the ones saying “If anyone is living in a fantasy world it is those people in that weirdo blog and its supporters” Don’t you love the crazies? lol

And sorry Rudy, don't know how to train a Mastiff how to eat people. I had a Doberman once that was trained to kill, though (my [ex] husband is a police officer). One day I leaned over to throw a ball for the dumb dog (his name was REMINGTON, after the rifle!) and the asshole dog grabbed me by the head and flung ME to the ground. YEAH. Dog... all gone.

I just knew Anderson had a dog, didn't know what happened to her. And it wasn't a little dog. I think it was an English Springer Spaniel. Someone told me he now has a Sharpei. How they know that I don't know. Sharpeis are GROSS and they stink, too. Wrinkle dog? Can't see it in my head.

He needs a cat, not a dog. You can leave them alone for weeks and they could care less. A dog mourns you when you're gone. It's not nice to the dog!!! I used to have three weenie dogs but had to find new homes for them when I went from house to apartment :( Whenever I go to NYC there are gay guys all over the place and for some reason they all have a freaking dog. I pet the hell out of all of them (THE DOGS!). Need my doggie fix!!!!

sydney said...

I'll confess to being uncomfortable the first time I saw the apartment pics here, especially with all the stalker talk. But since I have a brain, I was able to see how impersonal the space was and deduce that the photos were probably part of a designer portfolio and Anderson would likely give permission for that, and they were not the result of stalking-type activity. So, mea culpa!

I'm also glad you have the good sense to not post the address. Fortunately, I haven't seen it and I'm not going to look for it - I don't want to know!

OK, now you guys have put in my head at least 2 Seinfeld eps - the one with "good naked, bad naked" and George peeing in the gym shower...thanks for the laugh!

Anonymous said...

I know Molly is a Springer Spaniel, but was wondering why he would get rid of Molly to get a different dog.

There is picture on flickr of Anderson in New Orleans with a dog which looks like it may be a Sharpei.

Where did you here he got a different dog? Obviously, it drives me nuts when people say things and don't offer up where they got the info.

Singing in the shower to a bar of soap is SO GAY!!

newsjunkie said...

All right, I've HAD IT with this "he's gay, he's not gay" bullshit.

Time to say something.

Reasons Why Anderson Could Possibly be GAY (IMO):

~He won't say.

~He dresses too nice.

~He is practically androgynous.

~He's got a ton of gay friends.

~He's not seen dating a woman.

Reasons Why Anderson Could Possibly be STRAIGHT (IMO):

~He won't say.

~No gay man would be caught dead in the same Prada twice.

~Or for that matter, without socks.

~He's shy.

~He's not seen dating a man.

Reasons Why Anderson Won't Say EITHER ONE (IMO):

~It's nobody's fucking business.

~If he said he was straight, all the gays would boycott him, call him a liar, and 10 of them would jump from a bridge in despair.

~500 women would show up at Time Warner Center in NYC and attack him.

~If he said he were gay, those same 500 women would show up and try to convert him.

~All the gay men would show up and beat the women off (imagine that: squealing, slapping, hair pulling...) and attack Anderson too.

And people wonder why he won't say. DUH. It's perfectly balanced in either direction. SHUT UP and stop bringing it up.

Anonymous said...

If he had said his sexual orientation way back in the beginning of his career or whenever he realized he was gay, it would have been just accepted knowledge by now. So now that he is 40 years old and has never discussed said subject and then came out with an answer, people will question that and things like what you pointed out in your recent post will happen. I also believe he deliberately makes sure he is not seen in public with a male or female. Whatever happens in his bedroom, none of our business, and I don't want to know anyway, and whoever that person is sneaks in undetected.

My opinion.

Here is goes again. Most, including you, anon 8:36, don't know for sure if he's gay or otherwise, even if they say they know. It's anybody's guess, so let's close the topic.

Reasons Why Anderson Could Possibly be STRAIGHT (IMO):...~He's shy.

Being shy has something to do with being straight or gay? Never heard that before.

newsjunkie said...

Um, probably it doesn't. I think he's shy though, and that's why I put it there.

Whatever.

We can fight about it all day. WHO CARES?!! It's all about who Anderson IS, not who he's um, okay I won't be crass. I personally don't give a shit. So there.

You know... if you Google Anderson, the most GROSS yucky things come up. I swear, who the hell thinks the names of these things up? Or the fan-fic porn? jesus christ people!! GET A LIFE!!!

sydney said...

Not to put words in your mouth, newsjunkie, but I think I know what you're saying about the "shy" thing. If he's shy and happens to be straight, that would explain why he's not seen with hordes of women (if I'm wrong, just tell me to STFU). BTW, a big AMEN to everything you've said about this issue. I personally prefer not knowing.

ivy said...

I agree that the bottom line is if he says anything about his personal life one way or the other it will most likely harm him, not help him.

@newsjunkie, you should check out some of the nicks people use - lol.

newsjunkie said...

@ivy- er, I noticed already.

Lots of them have to do with the nasty things that are going on in their little brains. Or what they think of his penis size. Or, they all seem to include the word "fuck".

Ewwwwww!!

And no, Sydney, that's pretty much what I meant. Shy = afraid = not dating (anybody). Or you know, it could be what we talked about on the other thread, like he's got someone out there and they're just hidden under a rock. I'm just sayin'.

anonymousaba said...

Poor Anderson. He's trying to be a serious journalist, credible and hard working. Yet, unbeknownst to him, he's fueling his own fire in these idiots by playing his sexy cards much too vigorously. There are those whom admire Koppell, for instance, but you don't see Ted's fans verbally fixated on thoughts and discussions about his penis. Anderson might never get relief from the smut unless he ceases to play up that sexiness his trashier fans crave.

newsjunkie said...

Yeah, I agree anonymousaba. You should have seen the reaction to the infamous *bulge* during the Kenny Chesney thing. Description: Anderson holding a red plastic cup, um, with a uh... okay I can't even say. But uh, um.... well. Wow this is embarrassing. He was probably drinking at the time, and it seems that every guy who has had a couple drinks er- has that problem. You know, like uh, increased blood pressure? That's the most delicate way I can say that without *dying* from... *sigh*. Also at some party he'd obviously been drinking and danced around like an idiot. Someone needs to take that boy's alcohol away if there are any cameras around.

I can't believe the guys who edit this stuff did NOT CATCH THAT and take it out. Every fangurl (and guy) leapt on it like it was precious diamonds and bombed it all over the net. That's where the "penis size" discussion came from. Complete with hypothesis as to why he had that reaction in the first place (he liked Chesney?).

So, any suggestions on how to stop "playing up the sexy"? Well, being more careful with the damn camera is a start. And he should stop posing on the set.

Then again he might like the attention he's getting from that. You never know. Personally I think it would be humiliating.

Christiane said...

Since CNN started using the new studio, the make up people can't get Anderson's make up right. Las night, while watching the 360 show,it went overboard. His face was completely orange and his ears PALE AS NEWT!

How long ago was this and any idea where? He is so slight it probably doesn't take much to get him drunk.

Hmmm... I think it was a Mardi Gras or something- donned a pile o' bead necklaces and everything.

Also a pic from someone's personal party where he was obviously TANKED.

Shit, if I were as stressed out as he was, I'd be downing Vodka like water.

Anonymous said...

The posing on the set: he realizes how good he looks and think he plays up to the camera, posing, etc. I certainly enjoy watching him myself, but then I find I spend too much time focusing on his looks and not what he is saying.

Remember when he was in Brazil with Jeff Corwin and Anderson said something like is that a frog in your pants or are you happy to see me. IMO, not appropriate for that time, but, well, he said it.

Anonymous said...

"Hmmm... I think it was a Mardi Gras or something- donned a pile o' bead necklaces and everything."

Oh, yes, I think that may have been the first Mardi Gras parade after Katrina and he was dressed in a tux on a float throwing beads out to the crowd.

Where do you hear all this good stuff? I would love to see the video or pic if there is one.

anon 1:57- he said "is that a frog in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?" Don't bother looking at the transcript- they edited that part out.

And I actually don't have any pics of Anderson on my own computer, but like I always say, Google is your friend.

Here is the Mardi Gras photo... either has been drinking or is just having way too much fun. The Kenny Chesney photo and the party photo, oh, no doubt- his eyes are SWIMMING.

No, the Kenny Chesney photo is the infamous "bulge" photo. It's on some of the more disgusting blogs, where they voted on "sock" versus "really big..." can't say it, too embarrassed.

I'd LOVE to find the personal party photo. Someone is practically holding his drunk ass up. Cracked me UP. Use Google with his name, and then click on "photos", you'll find it. No it's not the one with Jake Shears. I went through 24 pages and couldn't find it, but I know it's there.

I avoid looking at pics of Anderson, actually. I don't want to focus on things other than his journalism and other nice qualities, and those pics remind me of how GORGEOUS he is. Therefore... not looking, don't want to be shallow....

If someone finds the personal party photo of drunk Anderson, can you post the link to it. I think I may have seen it once.

newsjunkie said...

Oookay. First we talked about the apartment... then it went to whether or not he farts and pees in the shower... and now we're discussing how he's a complete dumbass when drunk. Interesting. What happened to our intelligent comments? HELL IF I KNOW, I made half the retarded ones myself... oy.

"Interesting. What happened to our intelligent comments?"

What??

Did anyone see the picture of him leaving the Elton John 60th birthday party at the Garden? Didn't look smashed, but looked like he had kicked back a few.

newsjunkie said...

Yeah... that was an earlier point... I said someone oughta take that boy's alcohol away in public. He makes himself look like a dumb-ass and the whole world gets to take a look.

Anonymous said...

I feel sorry for him for that as well, like the guy can't even go to a concert, have a few drinks and some fun, having to worry who will see him and take a picture when he is not at his best.

We're so used to seeing him so perfect on 360 we forget that he isn't always so spiffed up and wants to just hang sometimes

newsjunkie said...

Yeah, he's HUMAN you know. Geez. I got wasted off my ass a couple weeks ago and fell all over my gay not-boyfriend right off the barstool. SO CLASSY. If I were famous I'd have had my picture all over the internet. I can see it now: "Sharla Jones completely tanked and falls on extremely gorgeous gay man... who holds her up and helps her to the bathroom so she doesn't fall in the toilet."

Uh yeah. I shouldn't drink vodka on an empty stomach.

noticed stalkerboy removed his things from flicker? Huh.....was it something we said?

Anderson's a gorgeous man to look at, there's no denying. I LIKE him posing on the set, and I don't think any of that has ever distracted me from the serious issues that he addresses on the show. I don't see any reason to pretend that his looks aren't a factor in why I enjoy watching 360. BUT it's NOT the total picture either.

Now where's that drunk AC photo?

"Now where's that drunk AC photo??"

Yes, where is it?

newsjunkie said...

Good luck in finding the infamous "Anderson drunk-as-hell and being held up by two gay men" photo. The guy who put it up, I believe, was from Florida... and the firestorm that resulted, made him take it off Flickr. Possibly it has something to do with the guy claiming it was "proof" that Anderson is gay.

Yeah, well, most of my friends are recovering drug-addicts and I'm in pictures with them... that doesn't make me a recovering drug-addict, but someone could certainly say so. And people will believe it because they will believe anything!

Anonymous said...

Oh, I have seen that picture of Anderson on flickr being held up by some gay-as-hell-looking gays/guys. OK, I will throw this one in at my own risk: Anderson looked gay as hell also. He had that look on his face and so girly looking. I was looking for it yesterday which is when I notice stalker boi's stuff was gone.

Of course, he could have been in a drunken stupor grateful to those assisting him and was trying to hug and kiss them or something.

And I am just looking at a picture and I do not know him and I do not what what the truth is because he won't tell us and I am try to keep an open mind and I'm like so outta here.

Hope I didn't violate any rule here

Anonymous said...

I'm the one who just posted anon 8:54. My ex-husband drank alot and he could get like the way Anderson looks in that pic. Sometimes he would be falling down drunk and the guys would help him up, my husband tried to french kiss one of the guys to thank him for the assist, he told them he loved them, they all got lots of hugs, and so on. I was standing there watching all of this and was cracking up. But my husband was not gay, I can attest to that.

Just felt I needed to explain myself a little here, not sure why, and I do not really know what my opinion is of Anderson's private matter simply because I only met him once for 5 seconds at a book signings, and all I see are pictures and read stuff on the internet, and being the skeptic that I am, not sure I can believe any of it.

newsjunkie said...

Well I act like a complete dumbshit when drunk and proposition all my gay male friends.

They are rather understanding that I am drunk. I've seen myself in pictures while wasted and OMG it's embarrassing. I avoid getting drunk now. Get a buzz, then stop. The end.

Like I said in the other thread, I have to apologize for going overboard in my observations and insinuating all sorts of shit. I am rather horrified looking at my comments from yesterday and hope to hell Anderson doesn't actually read it. It makes me want to crawl under my desk and not come out. I can't believe I sat here and analyzed the hell out of something I know nothing about.

Sometimes I think I'm really fucked up.

A friend of mine once complained that life is not fair. I agreed, said no it is not, but in a way I am glad it's not, because I sure as hell don't want to receive everything I probably have coming to me, if you know what I'm saying.

Off topic: I've read Erica Hill's show on HLN does not have high ratings. Don't know this for a fact as I haven't seen the data myself. Has anyone ever watched her show? I never seem to be around or have the time to look at it. Totally guessing here: is she just one of those read it to them from the teleprompter anchors? She has good banter with Anderson, but she just reads the new clips off the teleprompter but not much else you can do with the minute or two there.

newsjunkie said...

I have seen Erica's show. She seems like a really nice person; I wouldn't mind meeting her at all. We're the same age (actually she's a year younger). Hey...

People I'd like to meet off of CNN (and I mean, meet and hang out with plus get to know and become friends with): Anderson (duh), Dr. Gupta, Erica, and Mick Ware. They would definitely be in my "totally fucking cool" friends list. Of course, not going to happen, I know. Bummer. I have tons of friends now, from all different walks of life, and they always make life so much more interesting than it would be if I were alone.

Anonymous said...

Do you like Erica's show? As in, can you take it or leave it? Is she your "standard" anchor, teleprompter reading, any banter with a co-anchor or someone? Is it 1/2 hour or 1 hour? I like Anderson's show because he throws in some of his personality to lighten it up. Not sure Katie Couric or Brian Williams do that, and I am sure they are nice people too like Erica....you know what I'm saying.

My best friend of 30 years lived across the street here from Andy Rooney while she was growing up. I have met him at the Christmas party her parent's used to throw each year. Nice guy. He's kind of out of it now and living in NYC so somewhat inaccessible but had thought that could be a good connection to meet some of these interesting people, Anderson does some work for 60 Minutes now as you know

newsjunkie said...

anon 10:23- I like Erica's show. I'd take it, not leave it. I like Erica and even if she were reading right off the teleprompter, so what. Her nice personality shows right through it. She doesn't seem like one of those plastic talking heads at all.

anon 10:26- well, that would be taking it a little far for me. I don't hook up and make friends with people just because I'm trying to use them to get something for myself. That is just all sorts of wrong. I make friends with people because I like them, period. And I love Andy Rooney :) Course I also loved Paul Harvey- I'm such a dork. If I should so happen to meet people I want to meet some other way, then yay for me. I made friends with a guy who works for the New York Times because I thought he was cool. Do I want him to introduce me to the bigwigs? I certainly wouldn't ask him to. Like I said- he's my friend, the end!

You met Andy Rooney yourself? That is so cool! Email me and tell me what he's like in person, I'm very curious. People's public persona and private selves, are usually quite different.

Anonymous said...

Oh, I'm like you, I don't use people to meet other people unless he offered it up. Mr. Rooney is a very nice person and I would not ask him directly to make an intro to someone but if there was some function or some other venue and he asked me to come, I would show, that kind of thing.

newsjunkie said...

Oh sure, that would be fun. I come off as a big fat loudmouthed meanie, but I was raised completely differently by disgustingly materialistic upper class weenies, also known as my parents. Therefore I swear I really do know how act properly in public. It's fake, yeah, but I can sit sweetly and drink tea with my pinky out, use the correct fork, and carry on polite conversation about bullshit. Then I go out with whoever my date was and call them all names :)

newsjunkie said...

Ah, don't get me wrong though, about me calling my parents weenies. I respect my father very much, and I love both my parents, of course, even with their faults. But sometimes I think their priorities make them look like they have severe Cranial Recitis.

Example from November. Had just watched something on 360 about little kids in the Congo...

Me, putting my boots up on the table, just to piss my mom off... my parents had been out shopping (big surprise).

Mom: You like my new [gaudy as hell] ruby and diamond ring?

Me: You know mom, some kids in the Congo or something had to sit in the dirt, banging rocks together to get those rubies out for you.

Mom: Well, if I didn't buy them they wouldn't have a job.

I slurped my Chai tea really loud at that point so I wouldn't bitch her out. Then my dad sticks his arm out.

Dad: You like my [once again totally gaudy] new Rolex?

Me: You already have one.

Dad: Yes but this one is encrusted with diamonds.

Me: I bet that cost more than my truck.

Dad: Probably.

Me: I got mine from WalMart and not only is it just as shiny, it only cost me forty bucks.

Well.

You know when you die, all that crap is nothing. NOTHING. You could lose everything you've got and then who are you? You are you. And therefore you'd better be a good person, and you will also discover who your real friends are. I want people to like ME, not what I've GOT. I am not ashamed of who I am, even with my unabashed and rude honesty.

Thoughts?

Prime News with Erica is kind of tabloid heavy and stories that you'd see on Inside Edition. Erica can be funny in her delivery and she does do some serious stories, but there's a lot of "caught on tape" type reports, which sometimes end up on 360.

On the drunk AC photo, was there a dog involved and was Anderson wearing a black t-shirt? I've seen photos of him with two guys at some party, but he didn't look drunk or like he was being held up.

Anonymous said...

I have 2 photos of Anderson and those 2 guys at the birthday party that was held in FL. I even have the photo of Anderson with the aformentioned dog and black T.

Per the guy who posted the photos on flickr, Anderson only drank 1 Corona that night. The rest of the time he drank Diet Coke.

Anonymous said...

One Corona probably won't get you wasted, but why won't anyone post a link to the photo so we call ALL see!

Now I remember seeing those pictures of him in the black dog and standing next to the guy at the party in Florida I guess it was. He didn't look the least bit drunk to me, he could have been drinking, but any kind of drunkenness I did not notice at all, not obvious.

He looked more like he had been drinking in the picture of him leaving the Elton John 60th birthday party concert.

Anonymous said...

made a typo, not IN the dog but in the black T holding the dog. Haven't finished my coffee yet.

newsjunkie said...

Yeah... a night of drinking cheap wine and laying in your bed with the pillow over your head tends to do that.

And let's just give up on the "finding bad pictures of Anderson" thing. Who cares. It's also mean.

Is this work on this apartment supposed to be all complete now? With the extension on the roof as well?

Anonymous said...

10:44 AM: I was visiting a friend in NYC on Saturday and we walked by the apartment building and could not see any sign of any construction on the top of the building, we saw a tree or some foliage of some kind and nothing that looked like the rendering in the picture.

No, we were not stalking, just walked down the street like a zillion other people, and like, the exact address was posted on the report that was posted here I believe, so a no brainer to find it.

Sharla Dawn said...

anon 8:49.

Nick Denton is a complete fucking dickheaded asshole for splatting Anderson's address all over Gawker.

He's just hoping that all the crazies will come out and follow him around.

I think it worked.

Now poor Anderson can't even go in his own damn house without those jerks following him around.

Nick Denton... needs to understand that what he'd done is straight up WRONG. ASSHOLE!!!!

(oh no, I'm not pissed.)

And btw, you can't see it from the GROUND, duh. Not like I walked by it and looked up (I HATE GAWKER STALKER and I don't read it)- but I've been told that you can't see it. WELL GOOD. People shouldn't be down there pointing binoculars up at the freaking penthouse trying to catch Anderson walking around.

SICK. Seriously. SICK.

Anonymous said...

and like, the exact address was posted on the report that was posted here I believe

Missed that part. No, it was NEVER posted here. Freakspeakers is not that stupid. Gawker, however, is. Of course, like I said, that actually means NICK DENTON.

If you look up, you can see the rooftop penthouse. The building is not that tall and the penthouse is that large.

Sharla Dawn said...

Even if I went walking by it I wouldn't be looking up. None of my business. I think it's rude.

Just curious... when you had a look, did you whip out the binos too? Or you know, did you just stare at it for five minutes?
