Jay Leno Jokes David Letterman Extortion Plot

During Friday’s monologue, Jay Leno poked fun at David Letterman‘s affair and extortion plot he faced.

Leno joked, “If you came here tonight for sex with a talk show host, you’ve got the wrong studio. What is going on? First, Conan [O'Brien] hits his head. Then, someone tries to extort money from Letterman. I’m so glad I’m out of late night. I myself was once the victim of an extortion plot. How do you think NBC got me to do a 10 pm show?”

And on Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher joked, “I’ve never had sex with members of my staff — the guests, yes, of course, but not the staff.” He also said, “Hey, next to Roman Polanski and Mackenzie Phillips’ dad, I think Dave looks pretty good.”

Meanwhile, former Letterman assistant Stephanie Birkitt has been named as one of the women that the Late Night host had a relationship with.
