Broadcasters go gay for Beckham

What is it with newscasters and soccer stud David Beckham?

The latest round came Thursday when Fox morning show host Brian Kilmeade got a little tongued-tied when Gretchen Carlson called him on his burgeoning man crush over Beckham. He was on “Fox & Friends” to promote his three-part interview with Beckham.

“It is impossible not to notice that he is a good looking man,” Kilmeade allows in the chatter after the first interview segment aired.

Kilmeade was caught off guard when Carlson outed him for calling Beckham “gorgeous” off air. He stumbles, laughs and – when the teasing continues – jokingly walks off the set in a huff. (Hat tip to Gawker.)

It’s OK, Brian. It’s easy to get flustered when talking about Beckham. He does have a penchant for baring nearly all for the sake of selling underwear for Giorgio Armani and looks great when he does it.

Anderson Cooper, the openly closeted CNN star, held his tongue in better check for his segment on “60 Minutes.” The piece first aired in March and aired again last Sunday. The amusing part comes when a newly-buff Cooper, dressed in jeans and a not-so-loose t-shirt, plays goalie and attempts to stop Beckham’s shots. Watch that video after the jump.
