Dave... Oprah. Oprah... Dave.
Circle September 10 on your calendars, David Letterman fans. The press shy king of late night TV is going daytime... for one day only. He'll be guesting on Oprah when she brings her show to New York.
These two have a long history. Lady O appeared on Dave's show years ago, then became annoyed with the funnyman for jokes he made about her on "the program." So when O turned down a few visits to be a guest on his show, Dave waged a campaign to get her on. Every night he'd talk to sidekick Paul Shaffer about having Oprah on the show. Finally, O gave in. She appeared on his show in December 2005, the night her Broadway play The Color Purple debuted right near his midtown Manhattan studio. They also appeared together in a hilarious Super Bowl commercial.
So I'm looking forward to this... and hope my strange celebrity crush Dave is at least a little serious. Would love to hear more about his son, Harry, longtime girlfriend... as well as all those crazy stalkers he has.
Setting the DVR now.
