Kathy Griffin Reveals She Had To Give Back Cheque For F-Word On CNN

Kathy Griffin will once again host New Year's Eve Live on CNN with Anderson Cooper this year.

In an appearance with Jimmy Kimmel last night, Griffin recalled some of the pranks she's pulled on Cooper over the years.

But the comedian also revealed that one year she actually had to give back her cheque for hosting the show because she dropped the F-word.

"Hold on one second, did you really?," asked a surprised Kimmel.

"Yes, I had to give the cheque back. Yes."

"The only contract that I do that for is CNN because I love Anderson. But they have this thing that says if you say the F-word on CNN, they don't have to pay you."

"I didn't care. And I had a bunch of people dare me to say it anyway so, of course, I did it. But I did make them give the cheque to the United Way. I said you can't just get away with not paying me at all so they gave it to a charity, or at least told me they did."

Griffin also said she wouldn't be holding back when she takes over for Joan Rivers on 'Fashion Police'.
