David Letterman’s Wife ‘Horribly Hurt’ by His Behavior

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

David LettermanDavid Letterman has apologized to his staff and his wife, Regina Lasko, after he admitted to having sexual relations with female members of his staff.

“I’m terribly sorry that I put the staff in that position,” Dave said on Monday’s Late Show. “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.”

Dave then switched gears to apologize to Regina, who he admits has been “horribly hurt” by his actions.

“Now 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 it’s your responsibility, you try to fix it.

“And 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.”

Dave has been married to Lasko since March of this year and the two had dated since 1986. They have a 5-year-old son Harry.

    It took him 23 years to marry this woman, and she “had no idea” he was screwing other women? The only reason they wed is because of the son Harry. She should’ve seen this coming a mile away. I know I did.

    What can you say typical male a@*#^@ with money! And good guys like me that has morals can't find a decient lady!

    I hope Regina gets all she wants in the divorce. She was with this cad for 23 years and he just couldn’t keep it in his pants. Now he has a beautiful son that will someday know what his father did to his mother. He had it all and now he has destroyed lives. I wouldn’t take him back because he’ll never change.
