News Flash to Anderson Cooper you might want to find another co-host for next years New Year’s Eve show well that is if you are still hosting the show. In 2009 Anderson’s co-host Kathy Griffin dropped the F-bomb, last year she stripped down to her bra and panties and this year she simulated oral sex on Anderson live on CNN during his annual New Years Eve coverage.
A few minutes into the into the broadcast Griffin joked, “I’m going to tickle your sack,” his comic co-host immediately said. “You can say sack [on air.] That’s not bad.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I have no sack of gifts here,” Cooper stammered. “A sack of Christmas presents. I did not bring a sack of Christmas presents.”
But that remark was like chum in the water for Griffin: “Do you call your private parts your Christmas presents,” she asked in mock surprise. “Typical hot guy.”
Shortly after midnight, Anderson cut to a live report by correspondent Gary Tuchman from Eastport, Maine, where the town’s custom is to kiss a sculpture of an eight-foot sardine that drops from the top of a building much like the crystal ball in New York’s Times Square.
The camera then cut back to Cooper and Griffin in time to catch the self-proclaimed D-lister trying to kiss Cooper’s crotch.
“Did you drop something,” he asked.
“No, I was kissing your sardine,” she answered.
“I’m going on Letterman in two nights, and he wants a moment,” she deadpanned.
The awkward tug of war lasted a couple more excruciating seconds before Griffin said, ““You know you want to.”
“Believe me, I really don’t,” answered Cooper, no longer giggling.
