Jay Leno was called the ‘most insecure’ person by no other than his long-time rival David Letterman, who was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, as shown in the sneak peak video below. With that, the so-called David Letterman-Jay Leno feud seems to be heating up again, which has been ongoing for many years.

Letterman, 65, who has been hosting the late night television talk show Late Show with David Letterman on CBS since 1993, talked to Oprah on her Oprah: The Next Chapter show and shared his views on his troubled marriage and how it was repaired, as well as his “feud” with rival night show host Jay Leno.

“I’ve never met anyone quite like Jay. And I will say — and I’m happy to say — that I think he is the funniest guy I’ve ever known. Just flat out, if you go to see him do his night club act, just the funniest, the smartest, a wonderful observationist and very appealing as a comic.” David Letterman tells Oprah.

“Therefore, the fact that he is maybe the most insecure person I have ever known… I could never reconcile that.” Letterman added, denying that their ‘feud’ started when NBC have chosen Jay Leno over him to replace Johnny Carson in the night talk show back in 1992.

Apparently, David Letterman also had a much-publicized feud with Oprah Winfrey for around 16 years that started way back in 1989. Letterman once said in an interview that he and his then-girlfriend Regina had a “free lunch” and that he told the waiter that Oprah will be the one to pay for their lunch.

The Oprah Winfrey-David Letterman feud ended in February 2005 when Oprah appeared on “The Late Show.” In 2007, Oprah again appeared on the show to promote the CBS coverage of Super Bowl XLI. In 2010, Letterman, Leno, and Winfrey, were together at the show during the CBS coverage of Super Bowl XLIV.

Meanwhile, the full Oprah Winfrey interview of David Letterman will be shown at Oprah‘s OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET.
