Last night David Letterman told a story to his studio audience and the world because he was the target of a $2 million extortion attempt.
In the video Letterman admits that he has had sexual relations with different members of his staff.
The extortionists have been identified as Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien.
Actually, the extortionist is 51-year-old Robert Halderman, an employee of 48 Hours and the boyfriend of Stephanie Birkitt. Stephanie is or was Dave's assistant and she reportedly had an affair with him years before he was married or over the past 23 years while he was dating his now wife... the story changes depending on what you read.
This wreaks of all kinds of scandal and I guess we will soon see if the confession hurt or helped him.
What's the real "creepy thing" of this video? Telling a story about having sex with your employees to people who laugh and clap loudly.
Couldn't he have thrown in a little "this is serious" as an introduction?
