The Washington Post dubbed Walters' and Letterman's conversation "...fascinating, as the way it only can [be] between two people who have been in the business as long as they have."

Letterman even compared the scandal to the recent viral video of Solange Knowles seemingly attacking Jay Z. He wondered if it was fair to make jokes because the three are famous, or if it needed to be recognized as a "sad human situation." (Via TMZ)

As for Lewinsky's job status, Letterman asked if Walters had ever offered her a position on "The View."The longtime host wouldn't get into details, but said there'd been an opportunity, but it isn't the type of job Lewinsky wants.
