EXCLUSIVE DETAILS: The Woman At Center Of Letterman Extortion Plot

During a taping Monday of the Late Show, David Letterman apologized for the attention and inquiries that have been aimed at his staff and family.  Below is an excerpt:

“I’m terribly sorry that I put the staff in that position.  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.

“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.”

Audience member Tracy Frye, of Dallas, Texas told "David apologized to his wife and his colleagues at Worldwide Pants. He said he didn't really think through what he said on-air last week and how it would affect his co-workers.” He also apologized because he now realized that people would speculate he was involved with women on the show with whom he had no sexual relationship.
