CROATIA – It’s reportedly over for Anderson Cooper and bar owner Ben Maisani, who was photographed kissing another man.
Lucky for Cooper, longtime pal and fellow TV host Kelly Ripa is there to lend a shoulder.
The CNN newsman tweeted an Instagram photo Wednesday of him and Ripa in Croatia, where Cooper and the alleged two-timer were to have been enjoying a romantic getaway.
A source had told The News’ Gatecrasher earlier this week that Cooper, 45, and Maisani, 39, had an open relationship, but that the public embarassment is what really got to him.
Now, the National Enquirer reports that Anderson has kicked Maisani to the curb after the Splash picture agency photos appeared on the MailOnline.
“Ben runs with a really fast crowd in New York, and Anderson always knew that his boyfriend was exposed to hot young gay men at his bar. But he also believed he could trust Ben to remain faithful,” a source told the Enquirer. “He’s absolutely devastated.”
Adding to the intrique, Bravo executive and host Andy Cohen is also with Cooper in Croatia — and they seem to be watching, and posting pictures of, the same sunsets.
In fact, Cooper subsequently tweeted a photo of Cohen and cheekily added: “Look who just took the same instagram pic as me @bravoandy.”
What a power couple they’d be!
