“You know, it went well for me. Every year I try to up the ante a little bit. I have done it for five years now and I have been fired four years in a row. One year I said the f-word so I had to give the money back. I did not want to get fired,” Kathy Griffin recounted the show’s surprise strip.

She added, “So, this year I thought, ‘what can I do to not get canned?’ I thought it would be appropriate in Times Square, to create a moment, so I took my clothes off. I did not tell anyone. I did not tell Anderson.”

 “Go ahead. Wow, this is nice. Is there anything I can do? I don’t think I should…Wow, Oh my, oh buddy. We are gonna need some pliers.” David Letterman quipped.

Kathy Griffin added that she could not pull down her dress fully on the front, because she wasn’t wearing any underwear to prevent from getting panty lines.
