Are there any decent people left in this world? I truly wonder.

The extortionist must be stupid to believe that Letterman would actually give up any money. He even struggles to deal with his child support obligations. This guy is a major to chronic tight ass according to the stories from his previous love interests. He would take them out to dinner and expect them to pay even though he was earning over a thousand times more than they did. I don't know if it had anything to do with the time he once spent at the Waling Wall but he is cheap, really cheap.

I don't know if I got the punch-line, -if there was one at all. Classic Letterman.

The man made a mistake alright. Must have taken some balls to talk about it on TV like that.

a lot of people dont really care about adulterers! in fact, a lot of adulterers are being patronized by a majority of people.

When you are rich and powerful, people will do anything to get you. The woman might have been a set up. I wonder if they are checking into that?

At least now he has some joke material.

I wouldn't call it a mistake. It happens all the time, especially in this country. People wouldn't even think twice before they sleep with their coworkers. Some happens for just one time, while others last months. It's human nature, no shame should be involved.

People who appear in front of cameras are not supposed to have bodily functions. The religious right wing is going to have a sanctimonious hullaballoo over this piece of news.

Thats pretty clever everton2! But Letterman isnt Jewish.

Alleges extortion. "Claims" is not appropriate in a headline in this case.

Just a while back Letterman was ragging about a 14 year old girl on the show and now he was enjoying the company of some fellow workers. Wonder if he will share some funny moments about these experiences. I'm sure there are some but nah it won't happen.

A rich entertainer had an affair......... this is news?

Why did he need to fess up about it ? Looking for sympathy ??? Bah!

Never did like Letterman. His Top 10 list always sucked.

Where is the sympathy, people? First Polanski and now this.America really is out of touch with Hollywood.

Wasn't Obama just on Letterman last week?

Wasn't Obama just on Letterman last week?"

Yeah. A sitting President of the United States on David Letterman. Can you believe that?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Yes he was, but as far as any knows Obama managed to decline all lettermans advances.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

his audience is so lame they laugh at whatever the guy says, even while he's earnestly confessing to them.

i wonder how many 'women' there were? could it be part of the job description?

dave's top 10 reasons to get down on your knees.

i just had the carpet cleaned. you could be sarah palin's sister. paul has an intern in his office right now. let's do some stupid human pet tricks? i got my velcro suit on. it's my funny bone. for cryin' out loud. you could be sarah palin's daughter. you could be paul shaffer's sister. read the cue card!

and the number one reason:

if you like your job......

what a clown!

Admitting to affairs is not a good look in America - arguably the most fundamentalist Christian-conservative nation on earth. Americans do not like people who commit these "sins". Poor Dave is in a world of trouble now.

Letterman has never been popular with those Americans who enjoy their humour spoon-fed to them..

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Its not about "sin" Burakumindes, its about integrity and respect for other people. Not everyone in the US is a christ humping, bible thumper. If a person gets married they (by their own choice) have decided to obligate themselves to another human being. When that trust is broken its the same as breaking any other promise. David Letterman is just one among many.

it took a lot of guts to do what he did. er, i mean, the philandering haha.

I don't know how this is possible -I always thought Letterman was a robot. =A sort of tall GoreBot.

This happened before he was married. However big deal, lock the extortionist up. < :-)

Meanwhile, while many on JT moralize about Letterman's private affairs nary a word about the crime to extort him for millions... obviously sex sells.

"Wasn't Obama just on Letterman last week?"

Wow. No testing the waters here. Just straight off the deep end.

He wasn't married at the time so it's not adultery. Anyway, I'm glad this scumbag got arrested, but why would Letterman be so concerned about this story getting out? He gets to brag about having sex with a bunch of women and the women get to brag about having sex with a multi-millionaire celebrity. Where's the problem exactly?

Way to go Dave! Proud of you.

Far from being sexually harassed, the "victim" lavished praise on him, calling him the "best boss ever," and raving about how much fun he was to be with and how much she enjoyed her job.

I'm sure his wife will forgive him. After 23 years, their sexual days are long behind them. They will stay together for their young son Harry, age 6.

As Dave would say: Go away everybody. Nothing to see here.

It"s great being a Liberal. You can do what you want with whomever you want. Right wingers just dont get it.

Au contraire, Seiji: They get it from underage Senate pages and strangers in public restrooms.

"They get it from underage Senate pages and strangers in public restrooms."

All that the repub Foley got was texted.And all that the repub senator Craig got was busted...

At any rate, Dave needs to make the wingers pay for his misfortune.

Heh, they just do it on the sly and shriek down people who are courageous enough to be open about it.

It must be difficult going through life being so victimized all the time. I'll bet it just makes you want to go to a free assembly hall to complain about your taxes.

Damn that Letterman and his functioning groin.
