In one segment of Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin’s awkward shitshow of a gig co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve program last night—at an earlier point, Griffin peppered A.C. with a bunch of cool questions like “Would you kiss Caitlyn Jenner open mouth?”—Kathy took her top off and walked around Times Square.
