Teri Hatcher Strips, Feels Boob (VIDEO)

Last week Teri Hatcher tried on a fat suit and now she strips for an upcoming episode of 'Desperate Housewives.'

"I had to strip in front of 20 strangers on my 45th birthday," she told David Letterman Friday night.

Teri said that she broke a rib while suspending herself upside down on the stripper pole.

"I injured my rib under my breast here," she said as she caressed her breast. "Just a reason to touch myself on TV."

The worst part about having a broken rib is how much it hurts to sneeze, she said. Luckily she can manage the pain by holding onto her breast before she sneezes.

"So I would grab right here to hold as hard as I could, see touching myself again," she said, demonstrating for a second time. "But now I sneeze openly!"

"That's good news for all of us," Letterman laughed.
