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.

Nice. VERY classy lady, this Holly Hester. It's always the mark of a decent human being when they personally seek out the media (if TMZ can actually be considered "the media") to inform the world of their personal affairs with others. She'll probably get her own reality show ... or become a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars." She must have cared for Dave very much...

I absolutely do not feel sorry for a wife! Every wife -sooner or later- knows what is going on with the husband!
Only person I feel sorry for-their child!!
Shame on a women, having relationship at the office, like some race were fighting over this old, skeleton!If he is not who is him, I guarantee, nobody recognize him on a street!
All the women, who involved him in this scandal, deserve, what they got!
He is just an old horse, who took advantage the stupid chicken, good for him!

Keep laughing    

A lot of people here dont seem to understand how the men and women interact in the real world. Sure being rich and famous and/or good looking gives you an edge with good looking young women. But for the most part women like men who make them laugh and feel good.

A good example is my dear 55 years old dad. He is ok looking and well off, but definitely not wealthy by any measure. I generally dates women 25-30, every single of one whom looks like a model.

It is quite annoying actually because I am a head taller than my dad and actually pretty good looking (thanks mom), and I never get to date girls like that. Nothing like being outdone by your daddy in ladies department.

Oh well back to the point. Look I am sure his money and fame helped Dave to get some action. But he has a winning personality and women of all ages like that. i think he would get more fun if he was not so famous, because he would not have to worry about morons who call him a perv for having consensual sex with other adults.

Imagine the pale, skinny, rear-end of that old wrinkled dude humpity-dumpity-bumpity it up n down...ewwwww. That's the worst of all of this.

Left wingers could care less if he was bangin' an 18 or 80 year old. They live their lives accountable to no one or any standards; just pragmatic pigs.

Conservatives aren't perfect but at least they try and live by some set of standards and they usually 'police' their own garbage unlike liberals who embrace it even more (see Bill C., Ted K., Barney F., Jessie J., Roman P., and on and on..)

OMG who cares? This was almost 20 years ago which means he was much younger than he was not an old perv. He had sex and a relationship with someone yonger than him. Hello, it happens all the time. And maybe he was dating his now wife then but maybe he wasn't they have dated on and off for 20 some years and even if he was that was a very long time ago. People need to get off their high horses.

It looks like TMZ will be hearing from lots of "interns" for the next few months.

I agree with number 2. I think most of the women who date old men are just looking for money, expensive gifts, fame or the opportunity to get one of those things.

Great, now every nut job will claim Dave banged them, including the janiter. And they'll all be asking for $$$.

Dave seems slimy.

Democrats are evil    

This holier than thou hypocrite does endless jokes about Sarah Palin all awhile concealing the skeletons in his own closet. He's a pervert, he's not funny and hypocritical democrats deserve all the misery that they create. Karma is a wonderful thing. So let's hear another Palin joke Mr. Worldwide Pants. I'm sure your wife and child are just thrilled about all of this. What goes around, comes around Dave.
