It’s no coincidence that Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper both have the week off this week. They jetted down to Rio last weekend for the tail end of the Carnival celebration. On Saturday the pair (and possibly Anderson’s boyfriend Ben Maisani though some sources say he is not there just like last time) attended Sapucai (Culver City) 2013 a huge parade with spectacular floats and ginormous ornate carnival costumes. There is a large grandstand for viewing and corporations reserve portions of prime seating for their invited guests who all wear their logos. The best seats are owned by Devassa, a local popular beer company. Humorously, the gay male posse was adorned in yellow t-shirts with a naked woman logo on the front. But wait! There’s more… Continue reading

Bloggers/OtherMedia: This is original work in a series regarding the Anderson Cooper et al trip to Croatia. Please do not use this translation in its entirety. Please quote and link to my site with the proper attribution.
I asked someone to translate the Croatian video I postes in conjuction with a story about Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen being in Croatia. That translation has now arrived. I am wondering if the paparazzi narrating the story reads my blog becuause they seem to really want the two Andys to be there together. The amusing translation is below. Although they know about Ben, they clearly did not recognize him on the boat or Mark Consuelos who they seem to think may have been a body guard for the “famous trio” of Anderson, Kelly and Andy. Unfortunately, since I posted the video here as a US Exclusive, one of the big boys appears to have purchased the video as it is no longer available. I’m posting the translation here anyway, though I am disappointed the video is gone.
BTW, Both Anderson and Ben were caught by paparazzi this morning outside Anderson’s cute apartment that was once a firehouse. It seems they are just fine.
See the full (and humorous) translation on the next page.

So I woke up this morning to a hot exclusive in my email about the Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen trip to Croatia. (Special thanks to Jarenov). Sometimes, boys and girls, we don’t get what we wish for. It seems that Ben Maisani is on the Croatian trip with Anderson after all. In the video above you can clearly see Ben as well as Anderson, Andy, Kelly and Mark aboard the super yacht Princess Iolanthe in the city of seaport of Dubrovnik, Croatia. I know, I know, not what we were hoping for. Update: Apparently the Diane Von Furstenberg was also on the trip. What a group!
It appears that the Croatian paparazzi (who knew?) got a bit to close to the boat and Mark Consuelos opted to jump off the fancypants yacht and chase them away! One of their crewmen (the captain?) runs behind him. How macho! It appears the bushes were full of paparazzi as the group attempts to get a taxi. After unsuccessfully attempting to get a taxi the group heads back to the yacht. On the way back several tourists and some paparazzi approach the clan with iPhones and TV cameras respectively and ask how they are enjoying Croatia. None of the group responds despite a voice begging for “just one sentence.” Later in the video, the reporter is heard discussing the fact that Anderson Cooper recently came out publicly as a gay man and that gay marriage is illegal in most of the US. (This is my translation and I don’t speak Croatian. I do know a little Romanian, which is not even remotely similar… so take it for what it’s worth)

Young Ben of the unkempt hair goes romping through the foothills of the Maya Mountains in Belize with a woman of questionable repute. He is cast under her evil spell. The two happen upon Caracol, where the evil Courtney playfully tests the limits of her fiendish curse upon Ben’s disheveled head saying “I bet this was the site of many a human sacrifice.” Ben, being of slack jaw and limited intellectual capacity, fails to remove the knife from his pik-a-nik basket and behead the sorceress at the top of the stone stairs of Caana. Instead, he returns to the lair of the spell-caster and banishes a sweet, fair-skinned princess. The witch cackles with glee and begins scheming a new plan while the deeply enthralled Ben waits for the blood flow to recirculate to his prehistoric brain.
