Michelle Obama stopped by The Late Show on Thursday and commiserated with David Letterman over the "cloud" that sometimes passes over his 11-year-old son, Harry. "All of a sudden, all we do is argue and reason escapes the planet!"
"Yeah, you're in that phase," replied Michelle, assuring him that it does go away, but that she's currently dealing with that situation in the White House – but wouldn't confirm whether it was Malia, 16, or Sasha, 13.

As his 33-year-long tenure on late night comes to a close, David Letterman is feeling reflective.
Though he was candid about his sex scandal when it made headlines in 2009 after a blackmail attempt forced his hand, the late-night host has kept mum on the issue since.
In a revealing interview with The New York Times, Letterman, 68, was able to look at the scandal with some distance. "I think [CBS] would have had good reason to fire me," he said, adding that he was "largely ignorant as to what, really, I had done."

The landscape of late night has inarguably changed since David Letterman began hosting Late Night in 1982 and then Late Show in 1993, but he's not ending his 33-year run on a bitter note.
In an interview with The New York Times, Letterman, 68, is not upset about how the format he helped create has changed so drastically with the entry of energetic, Internet-savvy hosts like Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.
"They didn't push me out," he said. "I'm 68. If I was 38, I'd probably still be wanting to do the show," Letterman added, going on to say that the format – "an older guy in a suit" – certainly still seemed "viable" when Jay Leno was still on late night. However, after Leno left The Tonight Show last year, Letterman was suddenly "surrounded by Jimmys," he told the Times.

The Iron Man star, who turned 50 on April 4, didn't just hire out an airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California, and fill it with A-list guests including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow – he also arranged for some impressive entertainment.
"It was kind of a big deal," he told David Letterman on The Late Show on Thursday.

Fox was a guest on Wednesday's edition of The Late Show and host David Letterman ended up flashing an oldie but a goodie photo of the actor from 1985. It was from Fox's appearance on Late Night when Letterman worked at NBC.

[YOUTUBE "JFMQCKbHBQE"] The feelings are starting to surface as David Letterman counts down the days until his final show, and on Monday night Late Show guest Sarah Jessica Parker recounted a romantic dream she had about the lanky host.
"Many, many, many years ago, before I was spoken for, legally, I had a dream that you and I went to a basketball game together," she told Letterman, 68.
And during halftime, "You turned to me and you said – I think you meant every word – you said, 'I love you.' And I said, 'Oh, my god, I love you too.' And then you dipped me," Parker, 50, revealed.
