‘Real Housewife’ NeNe Finally Gets the 411 on Anderson Cooper
Long-distance love affairs conducted only in the press are difficult to maintain — even more so when one of the parties is carrying around a little bitty secret. So it is, then, that the relationship between CNN newsman Anderson Cooper and Real Housewives of Atlanta breakout NeNe Leakes appears to have culminated after weeks of Ellen-assisted flirting. At first, Leakes seemed flattered by Cooper’s ardor, but in her current interview with People magazine, she appears to know exactly what she’s up against:
“I’m not surprised that Anderson Cooper is talking about me! Wouldn’t you talk about me? I’m not surprised. Anderson Cooper is gorgeous. He is THE silver fox, and I just wish he’d come over on this side of the street.
Is Leakes merely inviting Cooper to take a sun-dappled, leafy stroll through the ATL, or is she subtly implying that Cooper is more likely to stick to the side of the street that has a Kiehl’s superstore and a 2-for-1 special at Splash? Though Leakes is cagey enough to pre-empt a rash of “NeNe Outs HoMo” headlines, we’re just going to assume that when she made that statement, her cleavage winked ostentatiously.
Anderson loves Nene… and Nene loves Anderson…
Anderson starts talking about ‘Nay-Nay’ at the 3:00 mark:
