Geraldo Rivera is opening up about his now-famous nude selfie, which was taken over the weekend. The Fox host opened up about the incident on his radio show.”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.”
Rivera was asked about the photo by TV personality Eric Bolling and former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, when they called in and asked him about the viral pic. Geralod tweeted the picture at 2 am on Sunday morning.
He deleted the photo not long after he posted it, but it was too late.
On Sunday afternoon, Rivera Tweeted again: ‘Note to self: no tweeting after 1am.’
