    Default Letterman Extortion Attempt

    Apparentley he tells the whole story on the show tonight:



    (AP)David Letterman acknowledged on Thursday's show that he had sexual relationships with female employees and that someone tried to extort $2 million from him over the affairs.

    During the taping of his CBS late-night show in New York, Letterman discussed receiving a threat to either pay $2 million or risk the relationships being made public.

    In a release from the show's producer, Letterman said he referred the matter to the Manhattan district attorney's office and that an investigation ended in an arrest Thursday. Letterman did not identify the person he said was arrested.

    As part of the investigation, Letterman said he issued a "phony" $2 million check to the individual and the arrest followed — along with testimony by Letterman.

    "This morning, I did something I've never done in my life," said Letterman. "I had to go downtown and testify before a grand jury."

    In his testimony, he said he acknowledged sexual relationships with members of his staff.


    "My response to that is, yes I have," Letterman said. "Would it be embarrassing if it were made public? Perhaps it would. I feel like I need to protect these people. I need to certainly protect my family."

    CBS spokesman Chris Ender said Thursday that "Letterman's comments on the broadcast tonight speak for themselves."

    Letterman and longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko married in March. The couple began dating in 1986 and have a son, Harry, born in November 2003.

    My hope is that he had no partner at the time he did this and she wasnt sat there in pain as the world and Letterman chuckled about this on national television. I dont know enough about this guy to know that but maybe if that's the case, it might be better to keep it in your pants David!

    Yes he did. To let you know. DL is one of the biggest talk show hosts in America. He's in one of those positions where he is a target. He is a good guy. Very likeable. Has dated the same girl for over 20 years. Had a child with her years ago. I'm sure they have an agreement. He has never had a problem making his life public. He's talked about a stalker, the attempted kidnapping of his kid, his marriage, now this. Plus he doesn't have a problem making others a target. There is always someone that is trying to take what he has. Now maybe he shouldn't be sleeping around. He does, but he is the kind of person that would bring it out and shut it down.

    CBS News correspondent Kelly Wallace reports that Letterman's alleged blackmailer was Joh Halderman, a 20-year-plus veteran of CBS News.

    The "48 Hours" producer was taken into custody Thursday by two plain-clothes police officers outside the CBS News broadcast center in Manhattan.

    Halderman is an award-winning journalist who has covered several wars for CBS, reports Wallace. He has worked as a producer for the real-life crime show "48 Hours" for more than a decade.

    I understand this is beside the point, and not to minimize the seriousness of the situation, but his account of the story was very, very funny.

    Really? Or are you just messin with us?

    I love Dave, but the thought of sex with him? Let's just say that he's not even one of those guys who you imagine it with for a second, then push it out of your mind. With him, it's never even entered my mind, nor will it ever.

    Actually, Letterman didn't laugh at all during his speech.

    I,too, found it rather WEIRD that the audience laughed when he said, "Yes I have...." when he answered the question if he had had sex with women who had worked on the show.
