Oct. 30, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Anderson Cooper has been spotted with his boyfriend Benjamin Maisani in India, apparently to spend a vacation. It is common knowledge that the CNN reporter is gay, but he had never before been public with his personal life. No wonder, then, that the photographs taken of the two has cooked up quite a storm among the paparazzi.
It has been assumed that Cooper and his boyfriend Maisani are staying at an expensive heritage hotel at Jaipur in Rajasthan, India. Photos of the two were taken while they were lounging at the Rambagh Palace Hotel, where the two are staying. An inside source reported to the New York Post that on the first night of their arrival, the two had hit upon the romantic idea of filling the bathtub in Anderson’s room with bubbles and sprinkling it with rose petals. It is reported that they have boarded the hotel at a whopping three thousand and two hundred dollars per night. The hotel was rated the most sophisticated hotel in the world by the Conde Nast Magazine and is also one of the most expensive ones.
Maisani is the owner of a bar called Eastern Bloc in East Village. This is the second time he has been spotted with Anderson. The last time they were seen together was in June. They were spotted biking together. According to Anderson, he prefers not to talk about his personal life as he feels that it might harm his career. He stresses that as a reporter, it is imperative for him to mingle with all sorts of people and that exposed details of his personal life might ruin his chances.
