    Untrue. These liasons happened before he was married to his current wife, who was also a staffer on his show before marrying him. He did not cheat on his wife. I'm not saying that he was or was not justified in his actions, but that is a mischaracterization of the facts.

    You know, David Letterman is a big dishonest jerk. He was unfaithful to his wife, and now he wants everyone to overlook it. He is right. he may have caude irrevocable harm in his marriage, but that's what he gets for letting his private member do the thinking for him..Think about it,,, Who would be attracted to that old looking man? I know the girl that beded him dow was not because he is sexy and apealing,they wanted to move ahead or keep their position. It would serve him right if his wife boots him on the street. He does not shoe true regret, he has a script, and scripts don't come from the heart. I think that ALL people that cheat should be EXPOSED for what they are. NO ONE deserves that sort of treatment. Believe me, I've had my share, and unless you have had the same thing, you can't imagine the deep hurt of betrayal it is.
