Judging by many of my friends' Facebook statuses, I’m not the only one suffering through the holiday flu.
For me, it began on Dec 27 and just now appears to be petering out. Being camped out on the couch and consuming nothing but orange juice and bananas is not how I pictured spending my holidays. The realization that I wouldn’t be going out on New Year’s Eve was a crushing blow, until I remembered that two of my favourite people in the world would be broadcasting live from Times Square.
Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin’s annual New Year’s Eve show is something I would usually watch weeks later on YouTube. But this year I caught it live and was not disappointed. From Griffin attempting to simulate oral on Cooper to drag queen Sushi telling Cooper how proud she is of him for coming out, the show definitely made my year.
Watch a clip below -- and happy new year.

Recently out newser Anderson Cooper had a close call while working in Gaza. A bomb exploded nearby while he was reporting Nov 19, causing the veteran to duck and exclaim "Woah!" Cooper said it was the loudest bomb he'd heard in the past hour. Watch the clip below.

Silver fox and noble newser Anderson Cooper has revealed to his friend Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Beast what the world already knew: he's gay.
In a heartfelt and honest email, Cooper wrote about how he has always tried to maintain some level of privacy surrounding his personal life and, as the competent journalist he is, would rather focus on telling other people's stories.
"I've always believed that who a reporter votes for, what religion they are, who they love, should not be something they have to discuss publicly," Cooper wrote in the email he allowed Sullivan to share publicly.
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be and I couldn't be more happy, comfortable with myself and proud."
