Apparently David Letterman chose to make some public announcement on his show last night? where he admitted to having affairs with several of his female staff members he worked with because of some $2M extortion plot. (I don't know why I should have been surprised and had to pick my shocked-open-in-denial mouth up off the floor)
He went on to explain that a man identified by police as Robert Halderman, a 51-year-old Emmy Award-winning producer, found out that he was sleeping with several staff members.Halderman allegedly threatened to expose the 62-year-old Letterman, who married his girlfriend, Regina Lasko, of 23 years in March, unless he forked over a staggering $2 million
Now.......in his words he said he he felt like he had to stay quiet about it all....not allow it all to become public (like keeping it private made it any better....somehow made it all OKAY)....and that he had to "certainly protect" his family.....protect the women he had the affairs with....protect himself.......and his job.....so he kept mum about it all.
Gee.....how can anyone be so blind? Does David Letterman and other men/women who have done this same behavior not realize for a minute the best way to protect your family......your spouse.......yourself......your job.....is to never make a choice to jeopardize it to begin with? To not treat them like they don't matter cause hey "I got to stick my dick up in all that right now"...........
Not that I was a fan of David Letterman before let alone his political opinions........but this just sours me to him altogether. Now he has become a creepy perverted old man. One of many others who just can't seem to keep their junk in their trunks. Another disappointment to a dying breed. No wonder women wonder if a man actually exists anymore who can be faithful or committed to "just" her. So they have learned to "settle" for a "lesser" man....because yes men......just because you can go around ram-rodding all over the place with many....does not make you more of a man in our books. So women learn to just accept the lesser man...and say all of it is alright. It doesn't matter. They end up with a weak man....not a strong one. They expect less.....they get less. Meanwhile the upright, righteous, strong, moral man with integrity as his backbone continues to slip away from our world.
Sure people make mistakes......but......it sounds like Dave apparently had a pattern.....so then it becomes more like "choices" rather than "mistakes." AND if we all got real about it........even the mistakes are still "choices."
Way to go Dave..... finally married your girlfriend after 20+years!! and you have a child together with her...make the commitment to finally "forsake all others".......and all your shit hits the fan. So classy! So admirable.
Truth always comes out........always........eventually - - one way or another.
