Anderson Cooper Gets a Cute Makeover

By: Brandon Voss

The CNN anchor has spruced up his studio digs for the second season of his daytime talk show, Anderson Live, which returns Sept. 10. 

Although many commenters are lamenting the loss of the stunning view of Manhattan's Columbus Circle and Central Park, the renovated set is significantly warmer and cozier — a homey environment that might prove more conducive to Cooper sharing more aspects of his personal life in the future.

Love it or hate it, consider the aesthetic changes part of a fresh new start for Cooper, who officially came out as gay in July and whose boyfriend may or may not have cheated when he kissed another dude in the park earlier this month.
