Misbehaving on Letterman!
Perhaps you watched my appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last Friday night. As usual, it was a lot of fun. Because it was Super Bowl weekend, my producers and I came up with a table decorated as a football field. We had football themed party foods including a cheese football – a nut-covered cheese ball in the shape of a football. I was demonstrating how to make it during my segment when Dave started to act up.
1 All of these screaming young fans were there for Justin Bieber. However, they did all chant 'Martha' as soon as they saw me.
2 The paparazzi was out in full force. It's always such an odd sensation being their focus.
