About Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s relationship

Andy Cohen and Cooper have continually fuelled dating speculations by sharing loved-up photos of themselves, sometimes in matching outfits, on social media. Even though Cooper is also openly gay, the best friends have maintained they are not romantically attracted to each other.
However, one thing is certain: Cohen and Cooper’s friendship has been going on for a long time now. According to information gathered by DNB Stories Africa, Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s relationship goes way back to the 90s. In fact, before they first met, they initially planned to go on a blind date but it didn’t work out.
Cooper, 55, recounted:
“Andy and I were first set up on a blind date, which never happened because we had a phone call and after two minutes I said, ‘I’m not dating this guy…”
Maybe they just might have ended up as a cute couple. But according to Cooper, Cohen broke his “cardinal rule” by mentioning his mother’s name (Gloria Vanderbilt) “within the first four sentences” of their first date. Even though Andy and Anderson claim not to be in a romantic relationship, they remain great friends and incredible TV hosts to date.
