PHOTOS! Here again are pictures of David Letterman’s wife Regina Lasko who Letterman apologizes to on air tonight. Letterman’s wedding to Regina Lasko was detailed by the talk show host on air earlier this spring. Now this winter Letterman is detailing his grand jury testimony about affairs with female staffers.
Is it too much on air information?
Don Imus has had enough of it. Imus this morning called Letterman a punk. Imus called Letterman “an angry, mean spirited” guy. “I’ve always thought he was a creek anyway. He’s a punk. Fundamentally if you are married or you have a commitment you should that. I’m not stupid and I know some people don’t but that what I do and what people should do”.
Robert Joe Halderman’s attorney, Gerald Shargel, also went on the media attack against Letterman today. He said the charges are false. “[They are] so obviously out of character to the point of not making any sense.” Halderman has pleaded not guilty.
Letterman’s apology reportedly included the following:
âIâm terribly sorry that I put the staff in that position. Inadvertently, I just wasnât thinking ahead. And, moreover, the staff here has been wonderfully supportive to me, not just through this furor, but through all the years that weâve 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 Iâve gotten myself involved in.
âNow the other thing is my wife, Regina. She has been horribly hurt by my behavior, and when something happens like that, if you hurt a person and itâs your responsibility, you try to fix it. And at that point, thereâs only two things that can happen: either youâre going to make some progress and get it fixed, or youâre going to fall short and perhaps not get it fixed, so let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me.â
