On Monday, David Letterman again apologized to his wife, Regina Lasko, for his affairs with staff members. Letterman began his monologue with, “Did your weekend just fly by?,” and said “muh bad” to both his wife and his staff. Letterman supposedly said,
“She has been horribly hurt by my behavior, and when something happens like that, if you hurt a person and it’s your responsibility, you try to fix it. At that point, there’s only two things that can happen: Either you’re going to make some progress and get it fixed, or you’re going to fall short and perhaps not get it fixed, so let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me.”
“I’m terribly sorry that I put the staff in that position. Inadvertently, I just wasn’t thinking ahead. And, moreover, the staff here has been wonderfully supportive to me, not just through this furor, but through all the years that we’ve been on television and especially all the years here at CBS, so, again, my thanks to the staff for, once again, putting up with something stupid I’ve gotten myself involved in.”
David is an insane genius. At first, it wasn’t clear why he admitted to the affairs on his show. Now that you see the audience roaring with applause despite Letterman being the one that cheated, it’s starting to make sense. He can do no wrong. I bet the public is so in love with him right now that if Regina came on and scolded him for cheating, the audience would boo and hiss and throw rotten tomatoes at her like she just kicked a baby.
