Dave May Have Had His Very Own Intern

10/3/2009 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A woman who interned for David Letterman in the early 90's says she was one of Letterman's top 10 -- on the staff.

Holly Hester
tells TMZ the internship was her first job in TV. At the time she was a student at NYU. Hester says during a hiatus, Dave called her up and asked her to the movies. It began a series of secret dates, with no one on the staff having any idea. She says, "I was madly in love with him at the time. I would have married him. He was hilarious."

Hester says Dave ended it after a year -- she says he told her the age span was just too great.

We placed several calls to Dave's rep. So far, no comment.

Why is this coming out now? This activity occurred in the '90s. If Letterman had done anything untowardly with the females he dated, it would have been leaked to the press(es) before now. It will be interesting to see how this situation unfolds why the extortionist felt he would be able to get away with what he was trying to get away with.

What Letterman did on his show Thursday was ingenious! He pretty much burst the balloon and any chance of gossip magazines, paparazzi and/or entertainment shows from making speculations or such with regard to this matter. He cut right to the chase and delivered the goods directly to the public. Bravo, Letterman!

As someone already mentioned Letterman savaged Monica Lewisnky (and Hillary) with incredible gusto, while he was doing exactly the same. I am delighted to see this aging, unfunny kvnt disgraced (and let's hope more dirt comes out during the trial).

my older sister worked at nbc studios in new york when she was 22 after college. she went out to lunch with conan obrien to a resturant in new york city with him alone,just the 2 of them. this was years before he got married so he was single at the time. he asked her out after seeing her in the nbc building and starting a conversation with her.
it was really funny and i as the younger sister whos an adult now, call it a "date". maybe it was maybe it wasnt ill never know,she wouldnt admit if it was.but i never let her live it down, its hilarious. but thats kind of the same thing cause conan obrien is much older then my sister. more then 10 years or something. she is only 30 years old now. my sister was a young college aged girl,post college age whatever 22 is.
single talk show hosts do take out young workers on dates. maybe tyra goes out with her male employees. coworkers date..its a common thing but not always ideal.
david letterman was not married yet when he was involved with these women.

Good lord "clue", is this something that happened to you? Got passed over for a promotion because the boss was dating a young female employee? Sorry to hear that. But the "Miller vs California dept of corrections" doesn't apply. Thats a California lawsuit. Dave works in NY. And once again I will state, the accusations you are throwing out have never been associated with him. You're the only one accusing him of it. Unless you're an employee of his and have knowledge of him "passing up a middle aged black man for a promotion in favor of a young female employee that he is romantically involved with" then yes, you are making a libelous statement. You're not Biff Henderson are you? HAHA

These relationship's , between two consulting adults, that had dated were about 20 years ago, way before Dave got married,Most of us have dated prior to getting married, So what is the big deal...absolutely nothing.....

Boy, there folks here who are saying Dave screwing around with his interns is no big deal because it was consensual.
I guess these same people have no problem with their "Significant Others" screwing around on them with co-workers or whoever.

It's plan wrong and CREEPY (Dave's word), sneaky, slimy, gross and immoral.

#1- Dave's been with the same woman he married for 23 yrs.
#2- He screwed around with his co-workers.
#3- They were his subordinates.
#4- They were young girls who he was decades older then.
#5- Does not make for a good working environment for other
employees.
#6- There apparently were several.
#7- It's WRONG WRONG WRONG
#8- Yes,this will have a bearing on how some on what his fans will think of him and could very well affect his ratings.

Who cares? Grown man had sex, He wasn't married and maybe his then-girlfriend didn't care or they weren't together at the time.

Why would anyone care about Dave Letterman? He is uninteresting, unfunny and I can't imagine anyone wanting to date him. He is also mean spirited and karma is a bitch.

Give me a break. D.L. is a typical "MAN" he would screw a snake if someone would "hold its head". Why is Anyone surprised by this. However saying that!!!!! Everybody wants $$$$. I just hope that his wife, and child are okay. Plus....at least he had the BALLS to come clean . John Edwards didn't....until too late..and now we know the repercussions of that scandal. I also hope the "Moron" who is extorting $$$ out of him is sent away forever. YOU AMERICANS AMAZE ME!!!! Cover up till it's TOO late!
