Anderson Cooper Reveals ‘Boyhood Crush’ You’ll NEVER Guess Who!

I have to keep reminding myself that Anderson Cooper came out as gay because every time I hear him talking about a “crush,” I still imagine it being someone of the opposite sex. Appearing on a skit on his own TV show, Anderson had to guess the names of 70s and 80s television shows based on clues compliments Jessica Walters, “One of the stars was Anderson’s childhood crush.” Guest host, Andy Cohen replied, “Which one?” and then Coop correctly guessed “Joanie Loves Chachi.” – “Wait, was the crush Scott Baio?” Cohen began to ask, “Yea,” Anderson admitted. He went on to explain that he considered telling Baio that he had feeling for him but lost his nerve, “He [Baio] was once a guest on the show, but I didn’t have the courage to tell him.”

Knowing Scott from the Beverly Hilton days, he would have been, um, flattered… But lemme tell ya, dude is all man.
