HOLLYWOOD HOOKUP (FOX44) – The host of “Anderson Cooper: 360” says that he's gay. The 46-year-old says he waited so long to come out because: "As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn't matter."
– It was a big weekend for Alec Baldwin. The 54-year-old actor and his 28-year-old yoga instructor girlfriend, Hilaria Thomas, got married. This is Baldwin's second marriage, and Thomas' first.
– In case you missed the BET Awards last night some of R&B’s finest took to the stage, paying tribute to Whitney Houston and her decorated career. Among the performers were singers Monica and Brandy, Houston’s own brother and mother, Gary and Cissy Houston, and the queen of funk, Chaka Khan.
– And it wasn't the male stripper movie on top of the box office this weekend. Instead it was a talking teddy bear. "Ted", the raunchy comedy, from the creator of "Family Guy" was on top with about 54-million dollars in ticket sales, according to studio estimates. Channing Tatum and his hard body buddies pulled in about 39-million dollars.
