Parents of interns participating in Quinnipiac University’s CBS internship program will be glad to know that extra steps are being taken to ensure that David Letterman doesn’t have an affair with one of their daughters. That’s right, after the much discussed David Letterman affair and extortion scandal, it’s come to this.
Even though no Quinnipiac students (or any other interns) have been indicated in Letterman’s numerous love affairs thus far, the college apparently felt the need to re-assure parents with attractive young daughters that Dave won’t lay a hand on them.
Says a Quinnipiac rep:
“Due to recent circumstances we will have a discussion with those in charge of placing our interns at the David Letterman show in the future.
We will diligently oversee this internship program to ensure that our interns are out of harm’s way.”
Kinda creepy, right? I especially found “harm’s way” to be an interesting choice of words. Yes, Letterman did sleep with staffers. However, none of them were believed to have been coerced or underage. I’m just sayin.
It’s weird just how big a hit Dave’s image has taken as a result of his cheating. It’s almost as if he’s been branded as some kind of sex offender, here. It’s not like we’re talking about Mark Foley or anything.
As embarrassing as it is for Dave’s family, at least his 5-year-old son Harry is a little too young to feel the humiliation. Just imagine if this happened when Harry was in middle school or something. That would suck.
