NY Post: David Letterman foots Don Rickles’ birthday bill

dave1.jpgDavid Letterman didn’t make it to Don Rickles’ 81st birthday celebration at Le Cirque, but the North Salem talk show host made his presence known by paying for the evening festivities, according to yesterday’s New York Post.

The Post doesn’t mention who, other than fellow talk show icon Regis Philbin, joined Rickles at the event, or how much Dave’s birthday gift was worth. But something tells me Rickles won’t be as quick to do a Top 10 list of Letterman insults when Dave’s birthday rolls around again April 12.

Oh, who am I kidding? Rickles probably saves the most vicious stuff for his friends!
