Letterman apologizes to wife on Monday night’s show
After declaring last week that he won’t publicly discuss his sexual relationships with staffers again, David Letterman continued his mea culpa Monday night — apologizing to his wife who, he said, had been “horribly hurt by my behavior.”
The host of CBS’ “Late Show” said he now has to try to repair his relationship with Regina Lasko.
“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,” he told the audience.
The apology came about 15 minutes into the show, but Letterman fired self-deprecating zinger after zinger as soon as he strode on stage and began his opening monologue.
“I mean, I’ll be honest with you folks,” he said. “Right now, I would give anything to be hiking on the Appalachian Trail. I got in the car this morning — and the navigation lady wasn’t speaking to me.”
