A state judge granted a temporary restraining order to Colleen Nestler, who alleged in a request filed last Thursday that David Letterman has forced her to go bankrupt and caused her “mental cruelty” and “sleep deprivation” since May 1994.
She wrote that she began sending Letterman “thoughts of love” after his “Late Show” began in 1993, and that he responded in code words and gestures, asking her to come East.
The code words and hand gestures? All on TV:
Nestler’s application for a restraining order was accompanied by a six-page typed letter in which she said Letterman used code words, gestures and “eye expressions” to convey his desires for her.
She said he asked her to be his wife during a televised “teaser” for his show by saying, “Marry me, Oprah.” Her letter said Oprah was the first of many code names for her and that the coded vocabulary increased and changed with time.
Oh ok… this all makes perfect sense, we can slap frivolous restraining orders on people based on our own delusions. That’s it, first I’m filing a restraining order against Bill O’Reilly — I swear every time he raises his eyebrows, he’s sending me the coded signal “I want to rub a falafel on you.” Then I’m going after Al Franken — I’m pretty sure he sent me a coded message the other day asking to lick my nuts. Oh wait,.
