Legendary TV News anchor Connie Chung is spilling the tea on famous people. She spoke to Andrew Goldman, host of "The Originals" podcast for Los Angeles magazine.
Chung says her relationship with Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer while she worked at ABC News was beyond competitive. "It’s not unlike what Tonya Harding did to Nancy Kerrigan,” she said. Tonya Harding has always denied any role in orchestrating the attack on her rival, Nancy Kerrigan.
Chung was one of David Letterman’s favorite guests, appearing often on the Late Show. They had real chemistry, and she described him as charming on air, but said “off the air, he’s dark … he’s a dark, unhappy sort of, I don’t mean he’s unhappy. … He’s anti-social, is what he is.”
Chung made a cameo in the popular HBO Max miniseries “The Undoing.” She interviews Hugh Grant’s character, and she said the encounter wasn’t nice.
“He was not very friendly,” she said. “I had interviewed him right after ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral,’ for his next movie. So when I saw him, I said, ‘Oh, hi. I interviewed you … do you remember?’ And he said, ‘No.’ So, I went, ‘OK.’”
