David Letterman's Admission

Letterman was accused and extorted for having sexual affairs with Tonight Show staff members.

Friday, October 02, 2009

Last night, David Letterman had a startling admission to his audience: that he had had sexual relationships with female staff members and was being extorted for it. Authories have arrested a suspect for the alleged extortion scheme but haven't released a name, though the AP reports that the suspect is Robert Halderman, a producer on CBS's show "48 Hours." We talk with our friend Delaina Dixon, TV blogger at DelainaDixon.com.

Watch his admission for yourself:
