Kathy Griffin Threatens to Ring in the New Year Topless with Anderson Cooper

Originally posted 12/31/2013 01:55PM

Kathy Griffin has been needling Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve for years now, and it sounds like they'll be ringing in 2014 for CNN much the same way – with one potential difference.

"@kathygriffin just sent me this photo of her outfit for New Year's Eve. She's kidding, right? Please tell me she is," the journalist amusingly Tweeted Monday.

The photo shows Griffin naked from the waist up, her hands gleefully thrown up in the air. (Don't worry – or get your hopes up: Her back's to the camera in the photos, so there's not much to see.)

Kathy Griffin is quick to fess up: She has no clue how to decorate a home.

"I have an eye for when it's done well, but I can't do it myself," admits the Emmy-winning comedian. "It's like nobody loves a great pizza more than I do, but I couldn't make one if my life depended on it."

So when it came to renovating her 7,300-sq.-ft. spread atop the Hollywood Hills, Griffin turned to her friend Lara Spencer, co-anchor of Good Morning America and a longtime interior designer.

Katy Perry: Grammy Dress Code Violator?

Originally posted 02/10/2013 09:15PM

A dress code at the Grammy Awards seems as likely to be enforced as a profanity ban for Quentin Tarantino movies. Still, the stars were ordered to cover up this year.

So, did they?

Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Rowland may have crossed a line with their outfits – Lopez in an Anthony Vaccarello dress with a high thigh slit, and Rowland in a Georges Chakra outfit that showed lots of skin.

Beantown bound!

Emmy-winning comedienne Kathy Griffin dined at Strega Waterfront on Boston's Fan Pier recently.

Griffin – who performed in nearby Worcester at the Hanover Theatre on Sunday – ordered up the restaurant's house special, calamari fritto misto.

Joined by her manager, Griffin "had Strega's Caesar salad with no croutons or cheese," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

After enjoying her salad, Griffin had her own pasta dish made with penne pasta, peas and chopped chicken in a vodka cream sauce.

The Kathy host is on tour through 2013.

Phyllis Diller used to say that freckles were kisses from the sun. Then, noting her own spotted complexion, she'd look skyward and wisecrack, "All right, lover. Enough!"

It wasn't just the sun that loved Phyllis Diller, who died at her Brentwood home Monday at the age of 95. Her fans spanned generations and also included the top names in the business she fought so hard to break into – and then remained, to elicit gales of laughter for more than 50 years.

"What she accomplished was something I don't think younger people can even grasp," Kathy Griffin, 51, told PEOPLE on Monday.
