NEW YORK CITY - Kathy Griffin co-hosting the New Year's Eve celebration with Anderson Cooper on CNN certainly gave out the New Year's kisses heard round the world.
In a move that even stunned and shocked the long time fans of the comedian known as The Red Cougar, Griffin, 52, said that she kind of thinks that it was probably the tequila talking, or maybe the bourbon, or maybe the beer.
But whatever it was, it was as they say in Delaware certainly a sight to behold.
Griffin embarrassed the 45-year-old Cooper on national television when she performed what is known in certain establishments in Las Vegas as a LOL to CZ Kiss.
In this case the LOL stands for Lips of Love and the CZ stands for crotch zipper. Kathy provided the lips and Anderson provided the crotch - unwillingly but it was there for all of America to see.
Afterwards Cooper tried to make light of it by saying that he had accidentally spilled some mustard from a Coney Island hot dog on his groin region.
He nervously explained that Griffin, who is the Martha Stewart of Comedy, was simply making sure that the mustard did not stain his $7,000 Gloria Vanderbilt Designer Pants.
After returning from a commercial Cooper told the viewers that he was not sure what had occurred but he was certain that he did not like it one bit seeing as he is of the gayish persuasion.
SIDENOTE: Kathy later told Tittle Tattle Tonight's Tapioca Swizzle that she really and truly believes that she may just have ungayed Anderson Cooper before a live television audience.
