Why you don't think women can make grown women can make decisions now?
He gets sex, they probably got promotions.

Why are you being ageist on both counts?

Regardless of whether Holly Hester thinks she was an equal in their 'relationship', she wasn't. It was seedy exploitation, plain and simple.

And he was a fucking shit TV host.
Seedy is good. Power seedy is even better.

I hope Paul Shafer played him out as he busted his goofy nut all over the little harlet.

But when did he marry the girl is my point.......

I really don't see your point anyway,moral outrage at this hour....I'd hate to see your reaction tommorow when the yes vote is passed.

That horse your on must be 18 hand high.
And......ye posted in ah? The mind boggles.
Firstly, learn how to use the 'Quote' button properly.

Secondly, I'm 100% pro-same sex marriage, so I'll be delighted if it's passed tomorrow. That has fuck all to do with the adulation for a man who managed to keep the millions rolling in even after his lecherous ways were exposed.

Automatically assuming a man is guilty of such things with no evidence to back it up is disgusting.

5000 shows he did, not bad for him.

There very little "equality" in relationships then. Not really up to you to police it.

I like him, even if his pencils have erasers at both ends.

Footie??

Letterman was one of the sharpest night host over here. Unlike the unfunny Fallon and fawning Corden et al Letterman made people laugh.

His 6,000 plus shows are a testament to that. The finale was class.

He had affairs. Big deal. At least he was honest about it and didnt deny them like other celebs.

Comparing him to Savile is beyond stupid.

I half-agree with you. Fallon and Corden are both shite.

He only admitted his affairs when he knew they were going to be exposed either way.

He's no Bill Cosby.

Plus he probably has more to him than saying "with the jippity skippity and the bee bop".

I always felt Letterman was a cut above most other chat show hosts and comparing him to Savile is just brainless. "Powerful man has affair"? So fcuking what. Do we compare Clinton to Savile too now? Not even Republicans stoop that low.

As for his ability as a talk show host - some of the stuff he did was great. He didn't always fawn over guests if he didn't like them. See his interview with Paris Hilton from around 07 as a classic example.

See his taking the mick out of Leno in 2010 over the whole Conan/Tonight Show debacle too. It was a tremendous, funny rant.

I understand that his final show was devoid of sentimentality and he spent much of it taking the piss out of himself. That's what marked him out as different for me amongst talk show hosts (particularly US ones). Good luck to the fella. A supremely talented talk show host and if his family can forgive him his other failings, I dont think people on a message board should be getting too upset about them.
