Jay Leno has been talking to People regarding his recent hospitalization which forced him to miss two tapings of The Tonight Show.
He says “I do three columns. I write for the London Sunday Times, I write for Popular Mechanics every month and I write for a British magazine called Octane. I do all automotive stuff. And then I’m on the road 160 days. I think it’s one of those deals where you just kinda just got worn out… That’s like a rich person’s condition. Poor people that work – they don’t get exhausted. Only rich people get exhausted. It’s an embarrassing thing”.
Leno hands over The Tonight Show to Conan O’Brien at the end of this month, and starts his new 10pm NBC show later this year.
