Are Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper dating?

For all those having this question, the answer is NO. Andy and Anderson are not dating. The chemistry and understanding that exists between the two is the friendship that has grown over the years. Andy and Anderson have been best friends for 25 years, and it is no surprise that they share a love for each other.

Despite this, the two were once set up on a blind date, as reported by Heavy. However, that date never happened. Appearing on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,’ Anderson recalled, “I knew within 45 seconds, I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen. I imagined him in like a Bluetooth headset, gesticulating. He was all excited, and he violated my cardinal rule, which is he asked me about my mom within the first minute of talking to me.”

Who is Andy Cohen dating now?
