The 70-year-old TV personality shared a semi-nude selfie on Twitter this weekend with the accompanying explanation,

"70 is the new 50 (Erica and family are going to be so pissed...but at my age...)"

Anthony Bourdain repeatedly retweeted the photo with accompanying comments:

"The face that launched a thousand breakfasts."
"Geraldo throws his hat into the New York mayoral race."
