Whoa! Stephanopoulos Surprised By Wife’s Striptease On Live Broadcast

Since leaving his influential gig as host of This Week, George Stephanopoulos has had to adjust to the lighter, free-form style of ABC’s Good Morning America. While some critics have called him a bit uptight, most chalk up any early critiques to growing pains. However, perhaps in a concerted effort to loosen George up, today he received a rather startling birthday surprise: his wife Ali Wentworth‘s imitation of Diane Sawyer followed by a shocking stiptease-like reveal. It was, by turns, funny-strange AND funny-ha-ha!

To George’s credit, he played off of this somewhat odd and staged moment very well, though it did appear to be a complete surprise to him. And to Wentworth’s credit – she really went for it! It was not just a delightful insight into their marital dynamic, but a refreshing example of known personality playing the fool in the name of good, goofy fun. It appears that neither George nor Ali take themselves too seriously.

Happy birthday George!
