Geraldo Rivera, the well known talk show host and attorney, found it in his infinite wisdom to tweet a half naked “selfie,” much to the delight, and in some cases, disgust of the general public.
Rivera turned 70 this month and he took to the infinitely shareable medium of Twitter on Sunday to convey his message : “70 is the new 50,” he boldly Tweeted along with the questionable picture.
Sporting only a small towel, to cover his private parts, the tweet offers viewers a clear smartphone image of Rivera’s torso, which I must add, looks pretty darn good for a 70-year-old.
He is also wearing tinted glasses and, of course, his signature mustache, which, to my mind makes him all sexier.
He continued in his Tweet, which he has subsequently removed for obvious reasons: “Erica and family are going to be so pissed…but at my age…”
The “Erica” Geraldo Rivera is referring to in his Tweet is none other than his fifth wife, 38 year old Erica Levy. (i’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions on that one.)
The couple have a seven year old daughter named Solita and Rivera himself has four children from previous marriages.
Some hysterical comments and Tweets have of course been in abundance, here are few that tickled me:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Geraldo’s towel,” says the president of Bed Bath and Beyond

Wait, that Geraldo photo is still up? It wasn’t posted by accident?
