Yes, even the most popular talk shows secretly ban celebrities. Such was the case with the late Barbara Walters, who wasn’t Kathy Griffin’s biggest fan – though she didn’t let that be known to the public.
It wasn’t the only time Conan O’Brien was forced to temporarily ban Dax Shepard after their encounter went completely off the rails, as Dax stumbled on his words and even fell on O’Brien’s desk.
Kyle and Jackie O gave Matt LeBlanc a ban for various reasons, stating that the actor gave them nothing during the interview.
Below, we’ll take a look at one particular guest Letterman who was banned for life. James Franco overheard a certain side of the story, however, Letterman deemed it a lie, and explained what really happened, and why the guest was not invited back.
David Letterman has done more than a few completely sideways interviews
We’ve seen this on multiple occasions, where interviews are completely derailed by a comment or moment. On David Letterman late showWe’ve seen that awkward moment on two occasions.
One memorable moment featured an audience member yelling at Oprah for the story of Satanism that took place in one of her last performances. Not happy with the fan, Oprah wasn’t happy with Letterman’s reaction. This would cause a rift between the two TV personalities for years.
Angelina Jolie also didn’t look overly excited during her appearance on late show In the 90s. The actress reportedly didn’t want to be there, given the way Letterman was treating some of his guests.
The honor for most embarrassing interview ever went to Crispin Glover, who nearly knocked Letterman’s head off on live television with a kick. Clearly uncomfortable, Letterman had to cut a commercial in order to smooth things over with his guest.
However, that was not enough to ban any of his guests. That was until Harmony, and a certain moment that happened behind the scenes.
David Letterman caught guest Harmony Korine looking through Meryl Streep’s purse backstage
Thanks to James Franco, fans got a bit more context as to why Harmony Korine has stopped appearing on the show late showsuddenly.
During the interview, James Franco mentioned his name, and how he was in a better place at the time.
Franco said of “Harmony is a very sane guy now, a great artist and a great person to work with, but I think he had a period where he was going a little off the rails, so maybe he was on to something that night”. director.
Franco did some digging, trying to figure out why Harmony started the show. According to his conversation with the director, it was about Meryl Streep, and there was an obvious push.
However, Letterman had a different side of the story.
He said, “I went upstairs to greet Meryl Streep and welcome her to the show, knocked on the door…and she wasn’t there.” And I looked around, and she wasn’t there, and I found Harmony going through her bag. True story. And so I said, ‘That’s it, put her stuff in her bag and get out.'”
Back in 2008, Corinne revealed that things were falling apart in his personal life at the time.
“I became like a hobo. I wasn’t delusional. I didn’t think I was going to be okay. ‘This might be the end,’ I thought. I’d read enough books, and I knew where this story ended, and the story ends by itself.”
Despite the controversy behind the scenes, Corinne was a popular figure, at least during his interviews with David Letterman.
What do fans think about Harmony Korine appearing on The Late Late Show?
The last conversation involving Harmony took place in 2013, though she was side-by-side with James Franco during an appearance on late show. Korine himself appeared on a handful of occasions throughout the ’90s, and his interviews always made fans talk.
For the most part, fans raved about his intelligence, and how he was able to think differently.
“Harmony is such a unique human being, I’ve never heard anyone else speak or act the way he does, every line he says could be a comedic quote out of context but even in context it’s still crazy,” one YouTube fan wrote. .
Another fan wrote: “This is a masterpiece of misunderstanding, Letterman thinks Corinne is joking when he’s not, then gets offended when he tries to play along.”
Corinne tries to mold what he’s thinking into short vocal syllables that he thinks she wants, but it descends into a hostile mood…
Perhaps Dave got that from the interviews, and his behind-the-scenes antics sealed his fate.
