Geraldo took a moment on his Monday radio show to address one of the most talked-about news stories other than Kate Middleton's baby: his near-naked selfie.
For reasons unknown until now, Geraldo tweeted a selfie of himself standing naked in the bathroom, with a caption boasting his good looks for the age of 70. Twitter seemed to erupt over the photograph, with many wishing they could unsee the nearly-nude image of the Fox News host. When asked why he did it, Geraldo said:
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.' And I think because I'm so old people will cut me some slack—they won't take it too seriously. And I don't know, I just pushed the trigger. And once you push the trigger, it's just there for life.
