We Hate to Toot Our Own Horn…

…But sometimes we just gotta do what we got to do.

Today the New York Post reports they’ve “learned” that tight T-shirt loving CNN silver fox Anderson Cooper forked over $4,300,000 for a Greenwich Village firehouse–complete with a brass pole for him to slide down–that he plans to renovate and occupy.

“Learned?” Pleeze.

Didn’t Your Mama tell the children about these real estate rumors swirling and swishing around lower Manhattan way back on the 4th of November of 2009 and then have the scuttlebutt about Andy and his new pole confirmed by our well connected source Lehteeseeuh Littlebird on the 6th of November of 2009?

Yes we did, children, yes we did.

    Toot, toot, toot, toot…Great job, Mama!

    I still question the merits of such a property for someone who is in the public eye. The access is too available for hoi polloi; I’d personally prefer a high-rise and a doorman in his situation, but maybe this isn’t a concern he shares.

    Everyone knows it’s from you, Mama.

    Get ready to purify that skin. One of those shelter sites is going to throw pancake on your face and throw you on the TV to preach. I do hope it’s HGTV. I like them.

    Wardrobe suggestion for your program: big earrings & caftans

    Use G&T as the holy spirit to make everything the earrings and caftans work miracles.

    Love ya, Mama—mean it! Don’t go changin’. Can you tell I came out of the closet in the 80s? Keep on keepin’ us laughing and keep on keepin’ us informed. And don’t forget Anderson Cooper probably has access to some Vanderbilt money! My verification words are “blue blood.” Or should that be one word? LOL

    Oh Mama, you know it is never real until the “legitimate” press prints it. Just because you scooped it, wrote about it and let the chillun know, doesn’t make it real…….only the papers can do that…….now, about the Brange………………….
