David Letterman Puts His Money Where His Staff Is

My girl Suzy has always had this weird celeb crush on David Letterman -- and now I'm starting to see why. Dave is just a big 'ol generous softie! The late night talk show host has offered to pay his entire staff's salary through the end of the year, even though they are not working, due to the writer's strike. How freakin' nice is that? "Dave's not doing this to get good press, which is why it hasn't been reported for almost two days," a source said. "This is really significant because, as opposed to all of the other shows, this money comes out of Dave's own pocket." When Late Show stopped taping new episodes last week, CBS stopped paying Dave's production company. Now all of those employees, who work under Dave, won't have to worry how they are going to buy their kids presents for the holidays. It's a Chrismukkah miracle courtesy of Dave!
