David Letterman recently admitted to doing terrible, terrible things when he revealed the extortion/sex scandal and ongoing affairs with female staffers. And reports of Jimmy Kimmel dating one of his female writers (over Sarah Silverman?) makes us wonder how wild TV talk show hosts love lives really are. How does anyone get any writing done with all this lust bubbling on the set? But not everyone dips their pen in the company ink. Some talk show hosts -- Rush Limbaugh, Phil Donahue, Howard Stern, Larry King, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Carson Daily and Ellen DeGeneres had to actually find their wives and lovers outside the workplace. Gosh, imagine the inconvenience. --Elizabeth Snead Related: Top 10 reasons David Letterman confessed to affairs on 'The Late Show'
