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.)

Griffin might have to fight off frostbite if she follows through on her plan: Times Square temperatures are predicted to hit the low 20s Tuesday night.

Even so, she can probably count on Anderson to keep her warm. Her envelope-pushing barbs consistently make the anchor blush, but in that you-know-he-loves-it kind of way.
