anderson cooper confirms split from longtime boyfriend

Our hearts can't take all these celebrity splits!!

First it was Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux! Then it was Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik! Now, it's been confirmed that Anderson Cooper has split from his longtime partner, Ben Maisani! Say it ain't so.

The 50-year-old journalist confirmed the news in a recent statement. He shared:

"Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago. We are still family to each other, and love each other very much. We remain the best of friends, and will continue to share much of our lives together."

Although Cooper has been recently linked to 33-year-old doctor Victor Lopez, it seems that he and Ben still live together. In fact, just two days ago, the now exes were spotted leaving their Greenwich Village home together for the gym. Huh.

Looks like Donald Trump plans on digging himself in a full 18 holes this week.

Critics are putting the President on blast for golfing in West Palm Beach, Florida while funerals for some victims of the Parkland school shooting were taking place less than an hour away.

Anderson Cooper was one of the many who called out POTUS on Monday for playing a round at the Trump International Golf Club on "a day that saw two families bury their children."

Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, the location of his golf club, is about 40 miles from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland — where, last week, 17 people were killed in a mass shooting.

To his credit, Trump did meet with some survivors for a few hours on Friday. He even avoided playing golf over the weekend, which aides say was out of respect for victims of the shooting.

But as we know, Trump doesn't have enough respect to last a full 3-day weekend. Multiple outlets reported that Trump returned to

Kathy Griffin Talks Trump Photo Backlash, Being Fucked Over By Lisa Bloom & Andy Cohen, And Planning Her Inevitable Career Comeback!

Like it or not, mainstream media has seen very little of Kathy Griffin since she infamously took a photo with Donald Trump's bloody, decapitated head last May.

Blowback from the internet-breaking photoshoot included losing out on coveted TV gigs, a nasty fallout with Anderson Cooper, an insufferable FBI investigation, and mountains of death threats.

And while all signs may point to it being curtains for the comedian's career, Griffin knows that everyone loves a comeback (just ask that awful Winona Ryder L'Oreal commercial) — and says that hers will come before we know it!

In a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Griffin reflected on the overwhelming backlash from the Trump photo that came out of a May 23 photoshoot with shock value photographer Tyler Shields. The decapitation concept was birthed from the two spitballing ideas for a photo that "would fuck with Trump."

Little did Griffin know, she would be the one who was fucked with. After initially apologizing for the photo in a self-pitying YouTube video, in which she claimed she "went way too far," Griffin decided to adopt a more unapologetic, Joan Rivers sensibility and defend the photo as a free speech issue.

At least, that was the plan before her June 1 press conference with Lisa Bloom turned disastrous — a flustering presser Griffin now blames on the famed attorney. She explained:

Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen

Sorry about it, Kathy Griffin!

Andy Cohen took the 57-year-old comedian's spot on CNN's New Year's Eve Special with Anderson Cooper after her controversial photo of a beheaded Donald Trump… and it seems like the network is benefiting from the switch up!

"New Year's Eve Live with Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen was CNN's most-watched New Year's Eve special ever. Cooper and Cohen rang in the new year as No. 1 in the time period in ALL of cable in total viewers and in the demos on Sunday night."

The 12:30 a.m. portion of the coverage drew 2.34 million viewers and the 8 p.m.-12:30 a.m. marathon averaged 2.23 million.

In comparison, Fox News came in second with 2.423 million viewers and 608,000 in the key demographic. Booyah!

Congrats to Andy and Anderson!
