She’s Fierce, She’s Funny and She Put Words in Obama’s Mouth: A Conversation with Nell Scovell

Washington For Beautiful People

When TV Writer Nell Scovell wrote her now famous tell all expose in Vanity Fair about the behind the scenes exploits at Late Night with David Letterman, some thought it would ruin her career. But, the essay–a critical moment on the path to our “Me Too” era– didn’t end her career, she thrived.  Nell went on to write jokes for President Obama at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, for some of television’s top comedies and she was the co-author of “Lean In” with Sheryl Sandberg. On this episode of “Washington for Beautiful People,” Nell and Emily chat about the WHCD, Michelle Wolff, Bernie Bros and Bernie’s wrinkled suits, MeToo, toupees and dream 2020 candidates. Join us for a hilarious and thought-provoking conversation.
