Maury Povich says late-night host was 'in love' with his wife, Connie Chung

Maury Povich didn't hold back on "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen" on Thursday night.

While appearing on the late-night Bravo talk show with his wife, Connie Chung, Povich was asked by a fan calling in about rumors that fellow television personality David Letterman was "in love" with Chung and that he was "jealous" of Povich for being married to her.

"Very true," Povich said without hesitation. "To this day, this guy has never uttered my name correctly."

He went on to list out a couple of the mispronunciations that Letterman has used directly to his face over the years.

"[Was he] trying to get get under your skin?" Cohen asked.

"Oh, yeah," Povich responded. "And, with Connie, he was in love with her. Especially when they were both at NBC. Every time a guest canceled [he would call her and say], 'Connie, can you come up? We've got a skit to do!'"

BACK TO SLIDE

Back in the '80s, Chung would regularly appear on "The Late Show" when guests would cancel at last minute. 

Of course, Povich and Letterman's reported feud hasn't been a secret, and Povich has discussed their rift in the past.

During a 2016 appearance on "Howard Stern," the television personality, who has been married to Chung since 1984, opened up about Letterman's ill will towards him.

"Oh my lord, and hated me!" he said at the time when asked if he was really "in love" with his wife, before adding that at Letterman's annual Christmas parties, he would ignore Povich while chatting with Chung.
