Anderson Cooper Goes Blind, Updates Grindr Profile

Anderson Cooper almost deprived the world of his piercing blue eyes last week when he suffered a retina burn on assignment.

On his soon-to-be-canceled talk show, Anderson, the Gray Fox said he was working on a story for 60 Minutes in Portugal and had to spend part of the day at sea.

Later, he explained, he developed a burning sensation in his eyes and lost his sight for 36 hours.

Cooper even showed a picture of himself with an eye patch, and joked it’s his new online-dating profile.

That prompts three thoughts:

1. Anderson Cooper could have eye patches over both eyes and we’d still hit it.

2. Anderson Cooper uses hookup sites?

2. Anderson Cooper is single?
