Madonna Has A Pizza Date With Letterman

Madonna made her eighth visit to “Letterman” last night, arriving through the door of The Ed Sullivan Theater carried by a slew of handsome hockey players. “It’s the one sport I haven’t explored,” Madonna later quipped — a reference to her well-documented dating history with a variety of sports stars. Letterman asked about her recent divorce and she joked that her marriage lasted through the “Bush years,” when it was a “good time to be out of America” and that she’d rather “get run over by a train” than ever marry again. They ended the interview with Madonna’s first slice of NY pizza, which she probably spit into her napkin when the cameras stopped rolling. After all, she doesn’t like cheese on her pie. Clip above.

President Obama Takes On Letterman

Last night Barack Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to take on the “Late Show With David Letterman” when he made an appearance on the late-night talk show and discussed Afghanistan, the economy, health care, and heart-shaped potatoes. The President made the day of a woman from Missouri named Mary Apple when he asked to take a look at the wrinkled heart-shaped potato she brought to the show. The woman threw the potato up to Letterman and he handed it to Obama who said, “Well, thank you so much for sharing.” While Obama said the potato was the “main reason” he was there, Letterman’s Top Ten list gave several other possible reasons Obama agreed to do the show, including: “Wanted to congratulate Dave on the big Emmy win.” (Letterman lost the Emmy to Jon Stewart for the seventh year in a row).

Personal aside: Letterman films his show in my neighborhood, just two blocks from my apartment, and yesterday afternoon I met up with my husband, who was on his way home from work, and we were lucky enough to catch President Obama leaving the studio after his interview! It was a thrill to see all cops rev their engines in the front of the motorcade and then see the President himself drive past, but the best part of all is that Obama actually looked right at us, like us, personally, and smiled and waved! And I even have a video clip to prove it! Let’s face it: The heart-shaped potato may have been one draw, but I think the President really agreed to do “Letterman” so he could wave “hi” to me!

The Proper Protocol For Dissing An Ex

On last night’s “Letterman,” Anne Heche spent a seriously large chunk of time making fun of her ex-husband, Coley Laffoon, whom she divorced in 2007 before shacking up with her “Men In Trees” co-star, James Tupper. She not only called Coley a “lazy ass,” but took things even further, having this to say about Coley’s current occupation:
“He goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, ‘Oh! I got a check from Anne! Oh! I got a check from Anne! Yay!’”

After a few minutes of this tirade, Anne started to look pretty vengeful. I mean, really, trash-talking your ex on national TV is just … sad and kind of pathetic. Right? If you must vent some anger over an ex, please keep in mind these 10 rules. Keep reading »

Anna Wintour Melts (A Little) On Letterman


Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was on “The Late Show” last night to promote “The September Issue” and she was everything I expected and more. She trotted out in her signature sunglasses, didn’t let Letterman intimidate her in the slightest, and, perhaps unexpectedly, she was funny! She poked fun at Dave’s socks and sincerely seemed to suggest he buy Thom Browne suits, with their cropped pant leg, so he could show them off, and despite a reputation for being completely unapproachable, she was actually quite self-deprecating. Check out the interview above! Keep reading »

Renee Zellweger May Be Skinny But She Sure Can Hit

Last night Renee Zellweger appeared on David Letterman‘s “Late Show” looking mighty skinny. But I found myself ignoring her stick-thin arms when Letterman rolled out a guacamole-filled pinata and asked Renee to take a swing. We don’t know how they kept that green goo from going everywhere but Renee must not have eaten in quite a while because she kept asking, “Where are the chips?” Keep reading »

Britney Does Letterman

Everyone’s favorite reformed (?) psycho-in-a-blond-weave, Britney Spears, made an appearance on “Letterman” last night, reading the Top Ten list which, appropriately enough, was titled “Top Ten Ways The Country Would Be Different If Britney Spears Were President.” Wearing a string bikini — and an enormous tropical flower behind one ear — and looking more toned and in-shape than she has in years, Brit-Brit sat atop a Presidential-looking desk and shifted her weight from hip to hip as she read each number. The appearance was certainly less disastrous than past televised appearances (the infamous MTV Music Video Awards, anyone?), but I couldn’t help but think her “charisma” seemed a little canned. What do you think? Keep reading »

Anna Wintour Will Appear On “Letterman”!

Frosty Vogue editrix-in-chief Anna Wintour is slated to yuk it up with David Letterman on his late night show. Why would her Highness deign to gift Dave with her presence? To promote “The September Issue,” a new documentary that chronicles Wintour’s preparations for the massive September 2007 issue of Vogue, following the fashion legend as her team of editors brainstorm, style shoots, and meet with designers.

Could Letterman bring out Wintour’s supposed fun, coquettish side? If he can’t do it, no one can. Set your TiVos for Monday, August 24. [The Cut]

Sarah Palin’s Feud With David Letterman Gets Pornified

Well, it was bound to happen. Porn company Lethal Hardcore Video has spoofed the Sarah Palin/David Letterman feud for a flick called, ahem, “F**k My Mom and Me.” In the dirty movie, “Letterman” has sexual relations with both the former Governor (“Sara Paelin”) and her daughter (“Bristhole Paelin”). Has porn finally gone too far?! I’m sure Palin thinks so, but this is just another example of the negative side of putting your family in the limelight (and People magazine). As for the mother/daughter theme, this is hardly new. Porn with incestuous themes are pretty common — I’ve seen (and by “seen” I mean, uh, glimpsed, not watched) porn where two actresses, playing mother/daughter, sisters, etc. schtoop each other. I’ve even seen some twin porn and what’s icky about that is that it’s hard to fake identical twins. [AVN.com] Keep reading »

Sacha Baron Cohen On The Late Show. Swoon.

Yes, we’ve done a lot of posts about “Bruno” in the past two days. No, we’re not planning on stopping anytime soon. The other night, Sacha Baron Cohen went on “The Late Show With David Letterman” as…(gasp)…himself. He describes getting an interview with an actual terrorist for the movie. Any chance he’ll divorce Isla Fisher and marry me? Keep reading »

David Letterman Should Not Have Apologized To Sarah Palin

You may have heard that David Letterman and the governor of Alaska are in a bit of a tiff over jokes he made in reference to her family — particularly jokes he directed at one of her daughters. After much back and forth, Letterman apologized for the second time last night — this time, without sarcasm. Personally, I don’t think that he should have. Keep reading »
