David Letterman Drops Some CASH On Staff Parting Gifts!

Celebs Making An Appearance On The 'Late Show With David Letterman'

The show might be over…but the SWAG lasts forever!

David Letterman‘s former employees didn’t walk away empty-handed after his show wrapped…in fact, the revered host dropped thousands of dollars on  custom-made letterman jackets for his faithful crew (GET IT!?).

So what’s the deal? Well, Letterman’s final gift to his staff- personalized Letterman jackets–  have the words, “Thank you and good night” written on the front.  Dave made more than 200 of them according to the owner of Golden Bear Sportswear, the people who made the mementos.

Dave’s been buying staff swag from GBS for 15 years, but this marks the end of his relationship both with buying clothes from Golden Bear Sportswear and his crew. GBS wouldn’t divulge exactly how much Letterman spent, but the jackets run AT LEAST $300 each, so, you know. NOT CHEAP.

Check out the jackets HERE.  What a sweet way to say goodbye!

Chelsea Handler to Replace David Letterman?

Chelsea Handler Signs Copies Of Her Book "Uganda Be Kidding Me"

David Letterman announced his intention to retire yesterday… so the obvious next question is who will replace the Late Night host?  It turns out, that the frontrunner for the position may, in fact, be the outspoken Miss Chelsea Handler!  Just this past Sunday, Handler announced her intention to leave the E! network when her contract ends this year.

In April, Handler visited the Late Show and spoke with Letterman about the job.

Discussing the shake-ups in late night TV, Chelsea said: ‘Nobody can keep their job for very long, it seems. I mean, you’re lucky to have a job over here at CBS.’

‘I’m lucky to have a job, period,’ Letterman replied: ‘I don’t care where – I’m lucky to have a job. Mowing lawns – I would be lucky to have a job mowing lawns.’

Chelsea retorted: ‘Well, yeah – you’re a small man.’

Discussing Jay Leno’s departure from NBC’s Tonight show, Chelsea – who had made it no secret she was unhappy at E! – joked that Leno had left her a voicemail. The odd couple’s interview ended when Chelsea called him ‘dainty’, and Letterman retorted: ‘You’re kinda hefty for a broad.’

Grabbing her chest, Chelsea, clearly not insulted, replied: ‘We all know what you’re talking about.’

I’m a fan of Chelsea Handler so I think this would be a great move for her and for CBS.  I doubt it will come to fruition, however.  The last woman to have her own network late night show was Joan Rivers, for one year in 1986.  Additionally, Deadline Hollywood, is reporting that Stephen Colbert is the only candidate that CBS is considering right now.  Colbert’s current home is the Colbert Report on Comedy Central- which won its first Emmy this last year.  He would certainly be the safer, more traditional and more male choice…

David Letterman to retire from ‘Late Show’ in 2015

david letterman

David Letterman is a staple of late night TV, having been at the helm of The Late Show for 22 years now. However, all good things must come to an end and just today, he announced that he’ll be retiring from the show in 2015.

It was to CBS exec Les Moonves that Dave first broke the news, and he shared it with his audience in an episode due to air later tonight.

“[Les] and I have had a relationship for years and years and years, and we have had this conversation in the past, and we agreed that we would work together on this circumstance and the timing of this circumstance. And I phoned him just before the program, and I said ‘Leslie, it’s been great, you’ve been great, and the network has been great, but I’m retiring,'” said Letterman.

“I just want to reiterate my thanks for the support from the network, all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home, thank you very much. What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married.”

Letterman added, “We don’t have the timetable for this precisely down — I think it will be at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future, 2015 for the love of God, in fact, Paul and I will be wrapping things up,” he added, to a standing ovation from the audience in the Ed Sullivan Theater.

Well, that actually makes a whole lot of sense. David Letterman is 66, and it seems natural that he’d want to enjoy some of his twilight years spending the money he’s made and having time with the people closest to him. He’ll certainly be missed and it will mark the end of an era, but I think we can all support his decision.

David Letterman Ruins “Dark Knight Rises?”


During an interview on Thursday with Anne Hathaway (who, of course, plays Catwoman in the new Batman flick) David Letterman revealed a vital plot point – which may or may not actually be true – by saying that Batman dies at the end of Dark Knight Rises!

Um, oops?

Hathaway uttered a surprised “Dave!” after a breathless pause. “I just want you to know the wrath that you have just invited onto yourself. Chris [Nolan], I had no part in it, I’m sorry.”

Of course, everyone’s been absolutely outraged! Fortunately for Chris Nolan and the film itself, this reveal isn’t projected to affect box office sales.  The film, which made more than $160 million for its opening weekend, is doing pretty darn well.

David Letterman! (Shakes fist)
