Though it was previously revealed that David Letterman's blackmailer was the jilted ex-lover (Robert Halderman) of the woman (Stephanie Birkitt) he was allegedly having an affair with, it looks like Dave is focusing more on himself and less on the fact that he cheated on his poor wife!
Though Dave apologized to his lady love on The Late Show last night, he also took a few minutes to play his own pity card.
"I wasn't going to talk about it anymore but it seemed like people wanted to talk about it. When you're blackmailed, its a crime and you're a victim - it's felony extortion." Dave continued, "It's a nasty thing to do to people," and he kept using the word "victim" in reference to himself. Hmm, it's ALL about Dave, right?
"It's fall here in New York City, and I spent the whole weekend raking my hate mail. It's cold, too - chilly outside, chilly inside my house," he continued. "This is only phase one of the scandal. Phase two: Next week I go on Oprah and sob."
Wonder how much Regina's been scolding him? Maybe he'll pull a Kobe and give her a huge gem to put on her finger?
And why was everyone laughing while he gave his apology? Not funny!
