David Letterman books his first appearance on ‘Oprah’

The Associated Press reported yesterday that North Salem resident David Letterman will make his first-ever appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show next month.

Letterman’s Sept. 10 interview at Madison Square Garden will be broadcast live in some markets and delayed in others, according to her production company.

For those unaware, the two talk show hosts had feuded for about a decade, with Letterman cracking jokes at her expense and Winfrey refusing to return to his set. In 2003, she told Time magazine she was “completely uncomfortable” with those jokes. Perhaps the most famous of the barbs was the most benign: When Letterman hosted the 1995 Academy Awards, he introduced two uniquely named celebs to each other: “Oprah, Uma. Uma, Oprah.”

As you can see in the photo, the Uma-Oprah-Dave reunion in a way already happened. When Winfrey returned to Letterman’s show on Dec. 1, 2005 to officially end the feud, she presented him with a framed photo of her and Thurman.

But my favorite hatchet-burial moment between the talk show hosts has to be this commercial, which ran during this year’s Super Bowl.
