Anderson Cooper just went blind, but lived to tell about it.

The CNN news fixture went on assignment last week for 60 Minutes in Portugal, and relayed his (temporary) experience with blindness Tuesday on his daytime show.

"I am in this beautiful coastal area shooting this story for 60 Minutes involving the water ... I don't want to go into details [on] what the story was," Cooper said.

"But I am on the water for two hours shooting this story and it's an overcast day. I wake up in the middle of the night, and it feels like my eyes are on fire."

When Anderson Cooper isn't dodging explosions in Gaza (see video below), he's going off on Twitter followers who accuse him of covering the Israel-Hamas conflict unfairly.

Pamela Weiss found this out first hand earlier in the week when she ripped his reporting from the Middle East. In response, he dropped a Twitter bomb of sorts on her.

Weiss, a self-described "social media junkie" and "foodie," criticized his story an Israeli air strike on a media center, writing "Report a fair story. Report facts."

Amazingly, AC noticed and responded: "ummmm.... I just did that and have been doing that repeatedly on twitter and on tv. Do you actually think before you tweet?"

The Silver Fox has been caged.

As first reported by The New York Times, Warner Brothers has given the axe to Anderson, effective at the conclusion of Season 2; the final episode of this talk show will air in the summer of 2013.

Said Anderson Cooper in a statement:

“I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons. I am also grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.”

On recent episodes of the gabfest, Cooper has slammed Bristol Palin and Star Jones.

On last night's Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars, Bristol Palin stormed out on partner Mark Ballas during rehearsal because he doesn't want to be her partner.

Anderson Cooper is calling BS ... and calling it brilliant TV.

"Anyone on a reality show knows that to get attention, you have to have a have a wardrobe malfunction, throw up, have a breakdown, have a storyline," he said.

Anderson Cooper positively destroyed Star Jones during a taping of his talk show this week.

Sitting alongside Andy Cohen, the reporter addressed Jones' comments that Cooper only came out as gay in order to garner ratings for his program.

"I haven't thought about Star Jones in I don't know how long," Anderson begins, as seen below. "I was unaware she was even on TV..."
 

From there, Cooper - who simply sent an email to his friend while on assignment for 60 Minutes - logically explained why Star's assertion is utter nonsense.

Thank you, Anderson Cooper.

The world's most pathetic reality star appeared on this host's talk show yesterday, whining as usual about her innocence... and how she's a victim... and how she's constantly under attack...

... when Cooper stepped in and tried to shut Teresa Giudice up by telling her she sounds like a 12-year old. Watch the outstanding exchange now:

Teresa, of course, has been making headlines ever since The Real Housewives of New Jersey aired its season finale.

Anderson Cooper may be the host of Anderson, but the journalist himself was placed on the hot seat yesterday by Kristin Chenoweth.

Asked by the actress about his summer, specifically his decision to announce himself as a proud gay man, Cooper explained that his sexual preference was no secret to anyone in his personal life.

"I came out in high school," Cooper said. "I told my friends, I told my family. I've always been out to my co-workers and stuff. It's just not something I talked about publicly, because as a reporter, I didn't think it was appropriate. It didn't seem like part of my job."

So, why the change in viewpoint?

"I do think that the tide of history only moves forward when everyone is fully visible," Cooper said. "I didn't want to send a message that there was anything I was ashamed about or unhappy about or not comfortable with. That was the main thing for me."

Finally, the reporter, who is rumored to be dating Andy Cohen, added his thanks to all who have been there for him over the past couple months.

"I appreciate all the support I got and all the encouragement. I am the same person I always was, I do the job just the same way."

Earlier this week, photos of Anderson Cooper's boyfriend Benjamin Maisani making out with a guy not Anderson Cooper surfaced. Everyone felt bad for AC.

Now comes this rumor:

Cooper and longtime friens Andy Cohen let the Instagram universe know that they're vacationing together in Croatia ... and taking photos of sunsets.

If the montage above didn't make it clear, Anderson posted a beautiful picture of a sunset on his Instagram account, captioned "#Croatia. Sunset."

Andy Cohen followed with the same picture, different filter.

Almost immediately after that, Cooper posted a picture of Andy with the caption "Look who just took the same instagram pic as me @bravoandy."

Rumors of Andy and Anderson dating have been swirling for years, according to Gawker, and this is obviously likely to fuel them like never before.

With Cooper out of the closet, and with his boyfriend cheating, the odds of them being more than friends are, well ... higher than they were before we saw this.

Move over, Robert Pattinson. Make room at the bar for Anderson Cooper.

The CNN anchor may need to drown his sorrows in a few suds, following the publication of a few photos that certainly make it look like Ben Maisani has gone all Kristen Stewart on his live-in boyfriend.

The Daily Mail has posted shots of Maisani locking lips with an unidentified brunette in Grand Central Park. They were reportedly taken this past week and follow rumors that the journalist was hoping to marry his loved one as soon as Labor Day.

Cooper and Maisani - who owns the bar Eastern Bloc in Manhattan's East Village - have been together for approximately three years. They live together in Cooper's NYC townhouse.

Last month, following years of speculation, Cooper came out as gay in one of the classiest, most well-written statements we've read yet on this issue.

In a well-reasoned, intelligent, thoughtful statement this week, Anderson Cooper came out to the public this week as a happy, proud gay man.

And Star Jones believes he did so for the ratings.

Asked about Cooper's announcement by Natalie Morales of The Today Show this morning, the irritating former View co-host said "I'm a little bit of a cynic" and added of Cooper:

"He's a daytime talk show host and when the rating slip in daytime, the hosts tend to tell you lots of things about them."

Jones then went on to cite Oprah Winfrey and her admission in the 1990s that she was pregnant at 14, hooked on drugs and once considered suicide.

"There [are] times when you generate information for ratings," Jones said, seeming to allege that Winfrey concocted those stories and Cooper had a motive beyond mere honesty for his public reveal.

Seriously, could this woman suck any more if she tried?
