Take note, Robert Pattinson: When your significant other cheats, you can take comfort in friends.
Fellow TV host Kelly Ripa has joined Anderson Cooper on vacation in Croatia amid rumours that Cooper's boyfriend Ben Maisani had cheated on him.
Yesterday morning Cooper posted a photo to his Twitter account of a fresh-faced Ripa snuggling up to him. The "Live!" host is a big fan of Cooper's and recently told Us Weekly she would like him as her new co-host.
"We have a connection like nobody else," she said. "I worship him!"
Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos, as well as "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen, joined Cooper in Eastern Europe following reports that Cooper's boyfriend of three years had cheated. Maisani was photographed kissing another man in a New York park earlier this month, and the photos appeared on the Daily Mail on Monday.
Cooper, who just came out last month, has not addressed the scandal, but the 45-year-old talk show host reportedly has an open relationship.
"The pictures are what's making it a big deal," an insider told the New York Daily News' Gatecrasher column.
