“As always, I await New Year’s Eve with Kathy Griffin with grave reservations and tremendous fear, and I want to apologize in advance to anyone she may offend/assault/attempt to kiss,” said Cooper.
The last two years — NYE 2011 (although Griffin did take off her top at one point) and NYE 2010 — were relatively tame compared with some of the headline-making stunts of the previous years; like when Griffin dropped the “F” bomb on New Year’s Eve 2009 and the year before when she called out an onlooker who had been heckling her.
And once again, Tom Foreman will host a year-end special “All the Best, All the Worst 2012,” at 8pmET.
