Highlights from Anderson Cooper’s visit with Andy Cohen last night on “Watch What Happens Live”

Last night on What What Happens Live, The Shady Mole popped into the Clubhouse to ask Anderson Cooper some shady questions, including what he thinks his sexiest body part is, who the dumbest politician he’s ever interviewed is, and when’s the last time he watched some porno.

During the After Show, Anderson says he is still going through his late mother Gloria Vanderbilt’s belongings and will probably donate her things to collections and museums. He also reveals that he just found a stack of telegrams from when she and Frank Sinatra were dating.

Today’s Morning Man: Thomas Roberts!

Emmy Award-winning TV newsman Thomas Roberts turns 50 today so what better excuse do I need to post a bunch of photos of one of the most handsome men on television?

I will always have so much admiration for Thomas for coming out publicly as a gay man nearly 15 years ago while he was an anchor for CNN Headline News. It cost him as he was soon relegated to a less-visible time slot and soon left the network to become a correspondent for The Insider.

Then came his most high-profile years as an MSNBC anchor and correspondent for NBC News. He did morning gigs on Way Too Early and Morning Joe before becoming host of Live with Thomas Roberts.

He made history over the summer of 2015 when he became the first openly gay man to anchor NBC Nightly News. Thomas also was presented with the Vito Russo Award at that year’s GLAAD Media Awards in New York City and threw out the first pitch at a Baltimore Orioles game.

September 2020, Thomas became the host of The Daily Mail TV, a syndicated daily newsmagazine that recently ended its five-season run.

Thomas has been married to the equally handsome Patrick D. Abner since 2012 but the couple has been together since 2000.

This is from last week but I just came across it. However one feels about Lea Michele’s treatment of former co-stars on Glee and other shows, there’s no denying she’s got the chops to play Fanny Brice on Broadway in Funny Girl.

Morning Man Classic: Hart Bochner! you saw the 1981 film Rich and Famous starring Candice Bergen and Jacqueline Bisset, then you will never forget the hot young man Bisset’s character fell in love with.

He was played by Hart Bochner and he took our breath away.

Hart turns 66 today and he has aged like fine wine.

A decade ago, he starred opposite Debra Messing in the USA series The Starter Wife.

His other roles included the sleazy businessman in the first Die Hard movie, the killer in the cult fave Apartment Zero and the lead in the 1988 miniseries War and Remembrance.

But there are huge gaps in the handsome actor’s on-screen résumé.

“I stopped acting for a long time because I started directing in the early ’90s, which is what I always wanted to do,” he explained when we chatted in 2008. “Then I realized I missed acting and that I was still capable enough to exploit it.”

Hart’s efforts behind the camera include the comedies PCU, starring Jeremy Piven, and High School High, and he wrote, directed and produced the 2007 romantic comedy Just Add Water.

More recent roles include a part in the Warren Beatty film Rules Don’t Apply and guest spots on Scandal, Royal Pains, Criminal Minds, and Grey’s Anatomy.

“Bros” bombs at box office during opening weekend

I loved Bros and a lot of my friends did too but the opening weekend box office numbers fell far below expectations. I hope everyone involved knows how good the movie is, how we will have it forever, and that it will likely have a very a healthy life on streaming. It deserves one!

Here is an excerpt from today’s Variety box office story:

Paramount’s “Smile” debuted to a sizzling $22 million this weekend, easily topping the domestic box office. The horror film beat out the weekend’s other new wide release, Universal’s LGBTQ romantic comedy “Bros,” which landed in fourth place with a paltry $4.8 million bow.

“Bros” didn’t represent a major financial risk for Universal, carrying a modest production budget of $22 million. The film earned rave reviews, but clearly struggled to connect with audiences. Its opening is about half of the $8 million to $10 million that Universal projected “Bros” would make.

While it may have fallen short commercially, the Billy Eichner film is already in the record books: It’s the first gay rom-com to be given a theatrical release by a major studio, the first with an all-openly LGBTQ cast and Eichner is the first openly gay man to ever write and star in a Hollywood movie. Universal expressed optimism that the critical notices and the positive audience reaction (“Bros” earned an “A” CinemaScore) will fuel word-of-mouth and help the movie stick around in theaters.

“We are incredibly proud of ‘Bros,’” said Jim Orr, president of domestic distribution at Universal. “Everyone who saw it, absolutely loved it. And given that response, I think the film will continue to find an audience and have some legs.”

In “Bros,” Eichner plays Bobby, a brainy museum executive down on his luck, who falls for Luke Macfarlane’s Aaron, a muscular lawyer who may change everything for him. The film is directed by Nicholas Stoller with a cast including Guy Branum, Ts Madison, Dot-Marie Jones, Bowen Yang and Jim Rash.

Romantic comedies were once a reliable theatrical genre, but with the notable exception of “The Lost City,” which boasted the combined star power of Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, it’s rare for one to score at the box office. Universal will try again this month with the release of the George Clooney and Julia Roberts “meet cute,” “Ticket to Paradise.” We’ll see if that film fares better when it opens on Oct. 21.

Celebrating the 87th birthday of Dame Julie Andrews with songs from her greatest film and stage roles

There are stars and there are stars.

Julie Andrews is the real deal.

This legendary star of the classic films The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and Thoroughly Modern Millie and of Broadway’s Camelot and My Fair Lady turns 87 today.

The Hollywood legend with the amazing vocal range had her vocal chords damaged during a botched operation in 1997 and she has been unable to appear in any musicals since then.

But she hasn’t stopped working in films with The Princess Diaries and its sequel to her credit as well as the Shrek and Despicable Me franchises and this year’s Minions: The Rise of Gru. Miss Andrews is also the voice of Lady Whistledown on TV;’s Bridgerton.

She has also penned her memoirs and a series of popular children’s books.

At least we will always be able to hear that glorious voice by watching her classic movies and TV appearances. Here are some of them – enjoy!

Morning Man Classic: George Peppard!

The luminous Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly isn’t the only reason why I’ve watched Breakfast at Tiffanys more than 100 times.

I fell hard for the beautiful George Peppard as Paul Varjak, a young writer being kept by the older married woman played by Patricia Neal.

It was a gorgeous performance that made Peppard a major film star for a time. He went on to appear in the epic western How the West Was Won and the dramatic saga The Carpetbaggers. After his film stardom faded, Peppard turned to television starring in the 70s series Banacek and the 80s hit The A Team. He was originally cast as Blake Carrington in Dynasty but was fired after the pilot after clashing with producers.

The actor was just 65 and battling lung cancer when he died in 1994 of pneumonia.

He was born 94 years ago today.
