Whatever you think of David Letterman (I happen to like him) at least he had the balls to man up and state clearly the situation he is now facing. He was extorted for 2 million dollars to keep certain potentially embarrassing things from becoming public, and those reasons were true. End of story. Everyone move on, there's nothing to see here.
Except there is...
Sandwiched in between the horrid tale of Mackenzie Philips having sex with her father the night before her wedding day and Roman Polanski finally having to answer for his pedophilia 32 years after the fact is the revelation that David Letterman, the most sarcastic bastard this side of Lewis Black (another favorite of mine) was having orgies with female staff members.
Letterman's wife, whoever she is (she makes J.D. Salinger look like a publicity whore by comparison) should not feel a bit of outrage. This type of thing happens to rich, powerful men. It goes with the territory. But considering the other revelations this last week, what he did was tame. And let's face it, can anyone out there really picture Dave getting busy with beautiful, young staffers? The thought is so funny that even his studio audience laughed while he made public the details of the scandal. And I'm sure you thought the same thing I did-"Dave, getting his freak on? Nah, it must be a joke..."
