Paul Shaffer is speaking out to ET in his first interview since the alleged attempt to blackmail David Letterman was made public. The music man goes one-on-one with our Kevin Frazier, also speaking about his newly published memoir, We'll Be Here for the Rest of Our Lives: A Swingin' Show-Biz Saga, in bookstores now.
"Dave is my close and dear friend and there is nobody like him," Paul says. "There's nobody that I respect more." In fact, he says Dave gave him relationship advice - which he relates in his book. "Cathy is a woman that has been in my life for over 30 years," Paul tells Kevin. "We dated a long time before I actually gave in to the fact, and submitted to the fact, that this was the girl for me ... Until that time, Cathy and I were on-again, off again."
