Stephanie Birkitt And Robert Joe Halderman: David Letterman’s Alleged Extortioners

Last night, David Letterman nipped an extortion plot in the bud and told his audience that some mysterious person was demanding $2 million to keep quiet evidence that he’d slept with women on his staff. What is it about David Letterman that attracts the crazies? First there was that plot to kidnap his son, the…

David Letterman Bangs Female Staffers, Gets Blackmailed

What does a late-night talk show host do to top guest appearances by President Obama on one night, Bill Clinton the next night, and Madonna the following week? Well, if you’re David Letterman, you go on air and admit to having sex with your employees. The confession came last night when Letterman announced he’d bee…

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…

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’…

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…

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 eate…

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…

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?

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…

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…

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 — thi…

The Many Feuds Of David Letterman

As you know, David Letterman’s been getting a lot of flack for opening up his trap about Sarah Palin and her family. He won’t shut up about it. She won’t shut up about it. And obviously we can’t shut up about it. So after the jump, I’d like to take you on a trip dow…

David Letterman Versus The Palins: Round …Three?

It’s not David Letterman who makes women look bad, it’s Sarah Palin! The Alaska governor continued to cry us a river in an interview with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show,” saying that Letterman should apologize to women everywhere. She’s still claiming the jokes he made were about her 14-year-old daughter even though

David Letterman Versus The Palins: Round Two

The Sarah Palin and David Letterman feud continues. After the “Late Show” host cracked jokes about the Palin’s trip to New York City, the family got all upset and issued some very silly statements. They should’ve just kept their mouths shut. I would never have known about Sarah’s “slutty flight attendent look” if…

Letterman Jokes About Sarah Palin’s “Slutty Flight Attendant Look”

It’s one thing for a comedian like Tina Fey to make fun of how inarticulate and fame-hungry Palin is. It’s another thing to say she dresses like a slut. But that’s what David Letterman of the Late Show did last night in his Top 10 roundup of “Highlights of Sarah Palin’s Trip To

Joaquin Phoenix Brings His Bearded Freak Show To Letterman

Last night formerly super hot Joaquin Phoenix made a really bizarro appearance on David Letterman, and generally came off like a zonked out, frowning weirdo. Here’s the thing. I think it’s all a stupid “celebrity punking the media” publicity stunt to go along with his bogus fore into rap music. After all, Casey…
