Anne Heche escalated the war of words with ex-husband Coley Laffoon on Wednesday, complaining to David Letterman that the father of her little one was a needy, greedy egomaniac who still craved her attentions.

"Can you say 'lazy ass' on TV?" Heche asked when Letterman brought up her ex.

The 40-year-old “Hung” star admitted her choice of words was “terrible,” then launched another round of insults, People reported.

On what Laffoon, a videographer, does for a living: "He goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, 'Oh! I got a check from Anne! Oh! I got a check from Anne! Yay!' "

Heche told Letterman that Laffoon’s decision to coach Homer’s soccer team must have been a ploy for her attention too – and she hated it.

"Honestly, I don't want to come to rehearsal and watch you run around in your tight shorts like trying to pretend you know how to play soccer,” she said. “I divorced you! I don't want to hang around with you Thursdays and Saturdays and maybe on Sunday."

The pair, which ended their five year marriage in February 2007, has endured a very public and nasty custody fight over 7-year-old son Homer.

Heche has accused Laffoon of being addicted to “porn, poker and money,” while Laffoon has called Heche is “unstable,” according to People,.

On Letterman, Heche doled out some choice advice for lovers everwhere: Don’t get married. Stay engaged forever.
