Michael Douglas appeared on the David Letterman show last night, and they talked about Michael Douglas’ throat cancer.
He told David that he had just finished his first of eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy, and was visibly thinner. In the coming weeks, he told Dave he could lose his voice, and inability to eat or swallow solid foods.
He said that despite his throat cancer being Stage 4, it has not spread beyond his throat. David asked what the chances of recovery are, and Douglas said he has an 80% chance of recovery (with some specialists more optimistic).
David Letterman’s extortionist just pled guilty to one count of attempted grand larceny in the second degree.
Robert Halderman was just sentenced to 6 months in jail, 5 years probation and 1,000 hours of community service.
Under the terms of the deal, Halderman will serve 500 hours of community service in New York and the rest in Connecticut.
In the courtroom, Halderman said, “I have great remorse and sincerely apologize to David Letterman and Stephanie Birkitt. I attempted to extort $2 million from David Letterman.” Halderman called it “a thinly veiled threat.”
But today – there is a growing number of people yelling for David Letterman’s resignation. Why? Because he admits that he’s had affairs with women he works with. Affairs that happened while he was in a relationship with his wife (but apparently not since his son was born).
What do you think? Should David be fired? Does this change how you view Dave?
