art_david_letterman_cbsPaul 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."

Why are we critizing Dave???? He screwed around with his now wife WHO WAS """"HIS BOSS"""".

Everyday, all over America, bosses have sexual relationtions with their employees, and we never hear a thing about it.
If Dave Letterman, was the CEO of a corporation that is not in the public's eye, nothing and no one would even care.
