Viewers can always expect Kathy Griffin to do something crazy during CNN’s live coverage of New Year’s Eve, as she proves every year. Ringing in 2014 was no exception, as the comedienne handcuffed herself to co-host Anderson Cooper.
Griffin signed Cooper’s list of rules, which stated "No Swearing, No Stripping, No Touching, No Simulations,” but she signed it with Miley Cyrus’ signature. That in itself foreshadowed what was to come for a stunned Cooper, who has been co-hosting the event with her for seven years now.
"I have been planning this for weeks," Griffin said as she handcuffed herself to the Anderson Cooper 360 host. "Only three people in the world knew I was going to do this,” Huffington Post reports.
He responded, “This is truly my worst nightmare. I will gnaw off my hand." Afterwards he tweeted:
Happy New Year! For those concerned, some security personnel freed me from @kathygriffin's handcuffs! Thanks for watching!

Ahead of the show, Cooper took to Twitter to let his followers know Griffin teased she would host the show topless. “@kathygriffin just sent me this photo of her outfit for New Year's Eve. She's kidding, right? Please tell me she is,” he wrote.
In 2013, she tried to kiss his crotch and in 2012, she stripped down to her bra.
