From the annals of the NY Post, we are treated to an explanation of why a television personality chose to send images of himself wearing nothing but a towel and a pair of glasses. Mercifully his naughty bits were concealed under a strategically positioned towel.I can't read this self-serving journalistic schlock anymore. This is an adult(?) male who craves attention and will do anything to get in the news, whether it's news or not. And this is not news.
Geraldo Rivera attempted an explanation of his nearly naked self portrait on his syndicated radio show yesterday. In a nutshell, he said there was alcohol involved, that he had no one to talk to and he was amazed by his 70-year-old body.I stopped drinking over thirty years ago. But up until then, whenever everyone was asleep and I had a taste or two under my belt - off came the clothes and my junk was stowed under a tastefully arrayed swatch of cotton. Then out came the Polaroid and in a few seconds I was looking for stamps, envelopes and my address book. There was just so much of me that I wanted to share.
Television personality Eric Bolling and former New York governor Eliot Spitzer called into Rivera’s show and tried to get to the bottom of the accidental twitpic.
Bolling asked, "Of all the people that should know better, it should be you. What were you thinking?"
Rivera explained, "There I was, 2:30 in the morning on Sunday morning. You know, I do the show Saturday night, I did a great show on black-on-black crime and race relations and the Trayvon Martin fallout and federal charges ... and I get home and there's no one to talk to, everyone's asleep.
“And you just sit around, I had a drink and, you know, I had taken that picture Saturday morning and I was looking at it, just going through and I said 'you know, I gotta tweet this thing. I look pretty good for a 70-year-old.'
Geraldo and Weiner should be forced to spend some time together in a prison cell exposing themselves to each other. Then we'll see just how amazing they think they are.
