Kathy Griffin, Known for New Year's Eve Hijinks, 'Outdoes Herself' -- Simulates Oral Sex on Anderson Cooper, Complete With 'Sardine' Remark NY Daily News

Kathy Griffin, known for her past antics on CNN's live New Year's Eve coverage, "outdid herself" in this week's broadcast when she tried to simulate oral sex on her friend and co-host, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, reports the New York Daily News.

The incident happened shortly after midnight, when Cooper cut to a live report from Eastport, Maine, where residents have a custom of kissing a sculpture of an eight-foot sardine that drops from a building.

When the camera cut back to Cooper, it caught Griffin trying to kiss his crotch, the story says.

"Did you drop something?" he asked.

Griffin responded, "No, I was kissing your sardine." Cooper grabbed her and pulled her upright, the story adds.

In 2009, Griffin dropped the F-word during the New Year's Eve telecast, and last year she tried to strip to her underwear.
