David Letterman on his Late Night with David Letterman show last night confessed to multiple sexual affairs with staffers and employees at the show.
The confession came during the revelation that allegedly Robert Joel Halderman, who works on the crime show 48 Hours had placed a package in the back of his car blackmailing him in hopes of extorting a $2 million check in exchange for not exposing Letterman’s multiple sexual affairs with staffers and embarrassing Letterman. Research shows that a Joe Halderman was an Emmy award winning producer from 48 Hours.
Most in the audience thought Dave was telling an extended joke, even as the story extended to nearly 10 minutes long. It did finally become evident towards the very end that Dave was serious, relieved that the blackmailer was locked up, and a bit uneasy admitting the sexual affairs to his audience.
He did a good job in mixing in jokes, being light, showing fear, and basically keeping his audience off balance, to where, for the most part, the news didn’t hit as hard as it normally would have.
One of his funnier lines: “I know what you’re saying,” he said. “I’ll be darned, Dave had sex.”
Dave recently wed his girlfriend Regina Lasko of nearly two decades back in March. The couple has a son, Harry, that was born back in 2003.
Letterman now has more in common with arch nemesis Bill O’Reilly than he would like to. The difference with O’Reilly being that he was allegedly extorted by a former female employee he had been sexual with on some level. A settlement was reached in that case. It will be interesting the next time ‘the Factor’ is on Late Night with good ole’ Dave Letterman.
Halderman will be charged with and tried for extortion.
