Watch Amy Sedaris Talk To David Letterman About Dogs & Bunnies

Amy Sedaris
"I Didn't Even Know Pet Gazette Existed!"

Amy Sedaris, comedic hero-at-large, appeared on the “Late Show” Tuesday night where she learned that David Letterman is a proud dad to two dogs. Further proving that she can make just about anything funny, Sedaris told Letterman tales of her pet rabbit and gave him a giggle-worthy lecture on just how unacceptable it is for him to own too many pets.

“Hedwig” Creator John Cameron Mitchell Recalls David Letterman’s Transphobic Squickiness

Last night, at a Times Talk Q&A between the New York Times‘ A.O. Smith and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”‘s John Cameron Mitchell, the musical’s creator dropped an interesting anecdote about “Late Night with David Letterman” and its host. According to Slade Sohmer at HyperVocal, who snagged this Instagram video, Mitchell talked about promoting the original run of the groundbreaking Broadway musical — about an East German transgender punk singer who compares herself to the Berlin Wall — on “Late Night” 15 years ago,  performing the opening number in costume. But Mitchell explains that producers told him to not remove his wig at the end of the performance — which would revealing his male-ness — because they didn’t want to “confuse” the viewers at home. “They wanted people to think I was a woman,” Mitchell said. And then: “David wouldn’t shake my hand.” Keep reading »

Shailene Woodley Defends Eating Clay To David Letterman

I’m still disappointed in Shailene Woodley’s lame reason for not being a feminist (she loves the menz!!!), but I remain a fierce fan of her dedication to an earthy, conscious lifestyle. (And in an unrelated note, holy shit, she has legggggs for daaaaaays, doesn’t she?) The “Fault In Our Stars” actress sat down with David Letterman last night and of course the ever cantankerous host poked a little fun at Shailene’s recent admission that she eats and brushes her teeth with clay. Shailene had a sense of humor about it, but also did a good job explaining that ingesting clay is done all over the world and that there are many health benefits. As I was watching this, it occurred to me that if Letterman thinks Woodley’s clay diet is weird, he’d have a field day with Alicia Silverstone’s bird feeding and placenta-eating. I would watch that interview. [via Refinery 29]

Stephen Colbert To Replace David Letterman As “Late Show” Host

stephen-colbert-040914

CBS announced today that Stephen Colbert has signed a five-year contract to replace David Letterman as host of the “Late Show” when Letterman retires next year. In a statement, Colbert said, “Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.” While I love Stephen Colbert, I’m really bummed that Letterman’s shoes will be filled by yet another older white man on late night TV. What about Chelsea Handler? Wanda Sykes? Even Ellen DeGeneres? They’ve all proven themselves as both comedians and hosts. But of all the dudes whose names were tossed around as possible replacements, I’m glad it’s Colbert. But it’s still a mixed blessing. [New York Times] [Image via Getty]

Whoopi Goldberg Addresses Rumors She’ll Take Over “The Late Show”

  • Whoopi Goldberg shot down rumors that she’ll be leaving “The View” to take over David Letterman’s spot at “The Late Show” when he retires in 2015. Which is a major bummer, because we could use some more ladies in late night. [The Wrap]
  • It isn’t cool that Lindsay Lohan supposedly wasn’t on her best behavior at an AA meeting. [I would like to call bullshit on the "source" who says it's "unheard of" to arrive late and leave early. -- Amelia] It also isn’t cool that anyone blabs about what goes on at an AA meeting, which is supposed to be PRIVATE.

Johnny Depp Explains His Man-gagement Ring On “Letterman”

Johnny Depp Explains His Man-gagement Ring On "Letterman"
"Why is a grown man wearing a woman's engagement ring?"

I’m still a little bummed that Johnny Depp broke up with Vanessa Paradis and is now engaged to 27-year-old Amber Heard, but I do think it’s pretty rad that he’s rocking a blingin’ man-gagement ring. Johnny stopped by “The Late Show With David Letterman” and explained that the reason why he’s rocking a “woman’s engagement ring” because it was too big for Heard. Instead of getting it sized down, Johnny did what bohemian movie stars can do and bought Amber another ring (with a bigger rock) and kept this one for himself. I would expect nothing less from a man who likes to wear five scarves at once. [via Refinery 29]
