Yesterday, Anderson Cooper debuted his newly formated daytime talk show, Anderson: Live. To say the show ran smoothly in the live format would be a complete lie. The show was actually a mess. Missed cues, technical difficulties and over-talkative guests plagued the debut episode. Thankfully, Cooper’s bubbly co-host for the day, Kristin Chenoweth made up for the some of the show’s untimely mishaps. My favorite part of the show was during a new segment, The First 15. Chenoweth really turned up the heat when asking Anderson about his summer.

“I think we’ve both had big summers,” Kristin jokes with Anderson. “I just wonder if you’d like to say, I don’t know, maybe, you went out a lot? Maybe you came out, and talked…?” Hahaha! Nothing like trying to poke the real subject out there Kristen. That certainly wasn’t very subtle. Anderson replies, “Everybody in my life has always known, you know.” He continues to explain, “it’s just not something I talked about publicly because as a reporter, I didn’t think it was appropriate. It didn’t seem part of my job.” Watch Anderson’s full conversation about coming out below.
