Warning: Don’t try Teri’s dangerous pole dance at home!

Teri Hatcher stopped by “The Late Show with David Letterman” last night, and she dished about her big striptease on an upcoming episode of “Desperate Housewives.” “Life was just saying, ‘You have to embrace this and be proud of who you are,'” she told Dave about having to strip in front of 20 strangers on her 45th birthday. She says the process was fun, but painful — she actually broke one of her ribs while coming up on the pole!

But the story’s much funnier when Teri tells it. Watch the interview below to get her take on the incident, plus what she did to cope with the pain of sneezing (hint: it involves grabbing her boob!)
