David Letterman Blackmailed Over Affair With Late Night Show Staffer … Will Letterman Do Affair Monologues on Himself?
DAVID LETTERMAN ADMITS TO AFFAIR!
Well this was a part of the David Letterman’s monologue that no one thought they would hear. Last night during The David Letterman Show, Dave revealed that he was being extorted and told the audience of a blackmail plot and confessed to have sexual affair with staffer.
So this is what it feels like to make fun of other being caught in an affair?
So Dave, how does it feel to be on the other side of the camera with regards to a sex affair? Extortion wrong, but Letterman has certainly made hay in the past at other people’s expense. What was funny about Sarah Palin and her daughter, is not so funny now is it when its about you.
David Letterman told the audience of his late night talk show that he had sexual relationships with female members of his staff, and added he forked over a bogus $2 million check as part of an extortion plot on the matter.
Letterman, 62, made the confessions to the audience during a taping of “The Late Show” for broadcast Thursday night, according to a statement by Worldwide Pants Inc., Letterman’s production company.
“This morning, I did something I’ve never done in my life,” Letterman told his audience. “I had to go downtown and testify before a grand jury.”
Online media reports named the man in the alleged extortion case as Robert Halderman, a producer for CBS.
“I get to looking through it and there’s a letter in the package and it says, ‘I know that you do some terrible, terrible things. And I can prove that you do these terrible things.’ Sure enough, contained in the package was stuff to prove that I do terrible things,” Letterman said on Thursday’s edition of CBS’ “Late Show.”
The host said the alleged extortion suspect claimed he planned to write both a movie screenplay and a book based on what he knew — that Letterman had engaged in sex with staffers.
No one should ever be extorted, it is a heinous crime. However, the irony that someone is going after Letterman after this man has targeted people unmercifully in the past is not lost.
Verum Serum looks back on the laughs that Letterman provided regarding sex scandals in the past at others expense. Dave, I guess it’s not too funny when the shoe is on your foot.
