I'm sure most have heard of the David Letterman fiasco of him being blackmailed for $2 million in sex extortion attempt. We've heard his side in that ten-minute monologue last Thursday night fessing up to the interoffice sex scandal.

One woman has been exposed, former assistant Stephanie Birkitt, and others are coming forward. There were reports from back in 2004 hinting at Letterman's and Birkitt's closeness.

"He puts me very much at ease," she told the Fort Worth Star Telegram in 2004. "He's very laid back about the whole thing. It's kind of just like hanging out onstage with your buddy."

Before now, there have been no employee complaints against Letterman concerning this issue.

Letterman married longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko back in March and they have a 5-year-old son together.

Though blackmailing is wrong, part of me is glad that Letterman's cheating self was exposed, so I'm somewhat torn in who's right here.

What do you think? Are you glad Letterman was forced to fess up?

I'm glad he was exposed. What a jerk, I feel so sorry for his wife and child.

David Letterman should retire. He is lame and boring. His jokes are not funny anymore. He is using this scandal for ratings. He does not care about his wife or child. He loves to ridicule people and now he is the big joke.

He owes his wife an apology and and an explanation, but not me. I didn't marry him nor expect him to be faithful to me.

The fact is, he cheated on his so, that's for him and her to deal with. Now the guy that tried to blackmail him is trying to act like a victim- THAT annoys me more than consensual sex between adults. Consensual sex isn't a crime, however, blackmail is- all the boo hooing this guy is doing is ridiculous. I think he said that David Letterman isn't "telling the whole story"- who cares? if it isn't that he forced, coerced or tricked someone into intimate relations against thier will, I don't want nor need the "whole story".
