Poor Anderson. His longtime boyfriend was caught making out with a mystery man in the park on Saturday August 11. Read on for all the details.

Anderson Cooper’s boyfriend Ben Maisani just pulled a Kristen Stewart and was caught kissing another man — so sad.

Even worse, Anderson and Ben were reported to be getting married in New York City later this summer — just before Labor Day, according to a report by The National Enquirer.

While Anderson just recently came out of the closet announcing, “I’m gay, always have been,” the talk show host has been dating Ben for a number of years under the radar.

Ben and the mystery man passionately kissed one another, while holding hands, in a New York City park on Saturday August 11.

This is so sad.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Anderson dump Ben?

Should Anderson Cooper dump Ben Mainsani or not? That is the question, indeed. The answer is not yes or no. Long term gay male couples often have discussed the matter before it ever comes up. In many cases, they will often agree that for the long-haul, emotional monogamy is the real test. Most men of whatever orientation find it quite easy to segregate sex and love and many of these couples maintain emotional monogamy but not physical sexual monogamy. Their are many flavours of this. If one member of a committed pair forms an emotional attachment to a man with whom they have had sex on occasion, the fury of a scorned woman will have nothing on the fury of a scorned gay man. The reason for that is that gay couples who allow for sex outside the relationship, the investment in trust is even greater. One has given the other an even higher level of trust that the other will maintain the separation of heart and penis in these other trysts.

So the answer depends on two things. First, do Anderson and Ben have such an understanding? If not, then the ground is crumbling beneath their relationship. If yes and Ben is not emotionally invested in this man from the park, then they should be fine after discussing more techniques regarding discretion. If yes and Ben has developed an emotional investment in this other man that detracts from his bond with Anderson, then the ground is crumbling and underneath boiling lava is rising to the surface. In public, Anderson Cooper seems quite unflappable, but who knows behind the door with curtains drawn.

I hope he speaks up!

I really hope Rob speaks up and says something this week about all this in defense of himself and even Kristen. Tells people to mind their own business and let them work this out on their own terms and in their own time. It’s really no ones business but their own and all the cheating talk really needs to stop. He could shut that down completely by saying point blank he’s never been a cheater with any of those women and their working on getting past Kristen’s own indiscretion right now. That doesn’t mean they’ll get back together but at least they can try to forgive and move on as colleagues/friends again. I hope his team advises him that would be the best thing to do for BOTH of them right now, or if not he just does it on his own. He’s always kind of done that and not followed what his handlers said to do anyway. He’s been his own person. That would nip this all in the bud. Period.

Ben was caught just kissing another man while holding hands, and nothing else.
Kristen was caught just kissing another man in a car, and nothing else.

So everyone thinks Ben and Anderson should for sure get back together, but Kristen and Rob shouldn’t try to work things out?!?!

Best of luck to both couples!!

awww. i really like anderson.
i think that ochocinco guy is worse than kristen, and this ben guy.
he basically beat his new wife for confronting him about receipts of condoms in his car.
