Kelly's dress sucks. Love the picture with Sam and his hubby.

I love the last photo of AC and Ben together on the red carpet, they both look so classy. It's interesting that Anderson posted that pic on his Instagram and wrote that they've been together for a long time, it's rare that he's willing to share that part of his life with the public. I'm glad that he did.

Clearly Kelly, Anderson and Ben are like family, with lots of admiration and respect for each other. Kelly calling AC and Ben fine role models for her kids was pretty awesome. I guess that's a pretty big step for AC to put a photo of him and Ben on Instagram and walking the red carpet together at GLAAD too.

I had no idea Kelly was so close to Anderson and Ben. In her speech, she thanked them both for being such good friends and such great role models for her children. I never buy when celebs act like they're all good friends, but in this case, it rings true to me, I don't think she was exaggerating. She seemed quite emotional during her speech.

She said the same thing about Andy Cohen.
