Video: David Letterman Opens Up About His Affair

In a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, David Letterman opens up for the first time since he publicly admitted he had an affair and then publicly apologized to his wife, Regina Lasko, in 2009.

The Late Show host made the confession after becoming the victim of an extortion plot created by a then-CBS producer, Robert Halderman, who demanded $2 million in exchange for his silence over the affairs. Halderman was charged for the crime and spent 4-months behind bars.

David Letterman may have been forced to admit to a string of affairs on air, but he says no one is to blame for the fallout but himself.

Letterman also discusses his relationship with Jay Leno, calling him, …the most insecure person I have ever known…’
