David Letterman has launched a scathing attack on his rival Jay Leno — branding his fellow chat show host a “complete boob”.

David — who cheated on his wife with a string of female employees — blasted Leno for his decision earlier this year to take over Conan O’Brien’s timeslot on NBC. The move eventually caused O’Brien to leave the network.

“I loved it, I thought it was very exciting,” Letterman said on his show.“It was great fun.

“I love Jay summing the whole thing up —‘Yeah, well, we both got screwed’. I said,‘No, wait a minute Jay, you both got screwed yet you’re the only one who ended up with a show. How did you get screwed, exactly?’”

When Letterman’s guest Dr Phil suggested that Leno “got a bum wrap”— the host replied,“He got everything he deserved. Believe me, he got everything he deserved.

“It was good fun and I couldn’t get enough of it and I wish it was still going on. I loved Jay saying,‘Well, you know, my show got canceled too’. Yeah, but you got your old show back. Hilarious.

“I’ve known Jay since 1975 and when we first met and were hanging around everyone loved Jay because he’s so funny, so engaging, so compelling — you can’t not love him. But then there’s also this other side of him — and I think he’d own up to it — he’s just a complete boob.

“He can’t help himself. And it’s just a lot of fun now that we were able to say,‘Oh, here’s the Jay we all remember’.”

Hey Dave... I'd rather be a boob, than an ASS! Do you really feel you're in a position to judge? If I were you, I'd sit quietly with my pie hole shut! You, of ALL PEOPLE, should not be throwing stones! Zip it!
