Closet Feud Forces Page Six To Come Out For Cooper

Rufus v. Anderson

It’s no secret Rufus Wainwright‘s a friend of Dorothy, but do you know who he’s not friends with? Anderson Cooper.

The singer sat down with Spin to discuss the joys of being out, but makes sure to point out that some capitalize on the closet:

If they stay in the closet, they’re going to make a lot more money. I go to the same gym as Anderson Cooper. When I look at him lifting those 5-pound weights, it makes me think, ‘He’s just trying to live his life and be all that he can be.’ But he still goes to the gayest gym in New York.”

Ouch. That’s gotta hurt poor Cooper.

Sensing the CNN anchor’s heartbreaking, Page Six takes on Wainwright’s whining. The gossip monger’s snipe:

Actually, the David Barton Gym on West 23rd is the gayest in the city. Cooper works out at the Equinox at Time Warner Center. And 5-pound weights are for 98-pound weaklings.

Sounds to us like Page Six has a bit of a crush on the Coop.
