THE DAVE LETTERMAN AND BONNIE HUNT CONNECTION
One person who has been conspicuously silent about the David Letterman scandal is Bonnie Hunt. Both midwesterners, Bonnie and Dave have been close friends for years – he always appreciated her talent. Back in the 90’s he helped her career enormously by backing two sitcoms for her and he even offered Bonnie the Late, Late Show after Craig Kilborn left. (Bonnie astutely felt she was more the daytime talkshow type.) To his obvious delight, she was a frequent guest on the Letterman show. Naturally that started us thinking that maybe Bonnie was one of Dave’s secret girlfriends. She’s cute and smart – definitely his type.
