In addition to the Olympics, Dorothy Letterman Mengering appeared regularly on the Late Show With David Letterman, remotely from her Carmel kitchen where she made David try to guess what kinds of pies she had baked for Thanksgiving. She attended Indiana University for a year before marrying Harry Letterman, who preceded her in death in 1973.
Mengering was one of the recurring characters who appeared on Letterman's NBC show "Late Night" and his CBS Late Show.
"I'm in hell. I will always be in hell until the day after, when I will go to hell", Letterman said to his show's writer Steve Young in 2009 as they prepped for his bombshell admission, according to the entry obtained People.
While she was in Lillehammer, she once asked spectator Hillary Clinton if there was anything she could do about the speed limits in CT, where David had racked up multiple speeding tickets.
BC election underway after weeks of unofficial campaigning ends
The formalities set the stage for a 28-day campaign and a bid by the BC Liberals for a fifth consecutive term in office. The Liberals say the toll cap would be applicable to personally registered vehicles that get a free TReO decal.
On YouTube, poster Mitch Tuchman claims, "On July 31, 1990, Dave Letterman called my dad by mistake when he was trying to call his mom in Indianapolis". Her other name: "Dave's Mom" - as in David Letterman. When I first started working at BSU, she signed books on campus.
That interview earned her a visit to the White House.
As Letterman, who turned 70 on Wednesday, prepared to retire from his longtime role as host in 2015, he aired a special Mother's Day montage honoring Mengering. "Once Jay left, I knew I had to get out", said Letterman to Zinoman about the decision to retire.
The host's spokesperson confirmed Dorothy's passing last night. Scared as I've ever been in my life. If I had a stroke, I'd be hospitalized for the rest of my life. Her Midwest charm contrasted with her son's biting sarcasm as he tried to guess what type of pie she had made.
According to a 1996 St. Petersburg Times story, the network asked Letterman to come up with some sort of tie-in on his show for the 1994 Winter Games. "My mom has one, and she's fine".
