David Letterman – Add to Hollyweird

Update:  If CBS producer Robert (Joe) Halderman intended to blackmail David Letterman about the funnyman’s sex life, he would have demanded cash, his lawyer said yesterday. Hmmm  Getting  more Hollyweird

“Here’s a guy who is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, who has dealt with cops and wiretaps and undercover investigations virtually his entire life,” defense lawyer Gerald Shargel said of Halderman on CBS’ “Early Show,” one of the morning shows he hit.

“There was a $2 million check. In the history of extortion, I don’t think there’s been a single case where the alleged extortionist took a check in payment. It just doesn’t make any sense.”

“Late Show” host called the whole thing “a very bizarre experience.”david-letterman-married-regina-lasko-wedding

You could say the same thing about his “bizarre” performance before an adoring studio audience that didn’t seem to realize the seriousness of the situation.

The audience laughed and cheered as Letterman used his usual assortment of funny expressions and hand gestures while describing what he called a “blackmail” attempt by a man who has since been identified as Emmy-winning CBS news producer Joe Halderman. Letterman said the accused extortionist threatened to reveal in a book and a movie that the host had sex with women who worked for him.

At times, the laughter and cheers seemed as inappropriate as Letterman’s occasional creepy attempts to joke about a very serious situation. In one case, the audience laughter even led to a joke. You almost wondered if members of the audience hated themselves later for laughing but couldn’t help it.

When Letterman said he had to go before a New York City grand jury to tell “all of the creepy things I’ve done,” the audience laughed.

Tthe David Letterman had secret bedroom above Ed Sullivan Theater, sez ex-‘Late Show’ stafferAn ex-“Late Show” intern unmasked herself Saturday as one of David Letterman‘s former flings – and sources revealed the randy funnyman keeps a bachelor pad atop the Ed Sullivan Theater.”I was madly in love with him at the time,” said Holly Hester. “I would have married him. He was hilarious.”

The NYU alum, who it appears went on to become a top Hollywood producer, told TMZ.com that the relationship started in the early ’90s when Letterman called and asked her on a date to the movies.A year-long, secret romance ensued, she said, until the funnyman called it off because of their age difference.

Hollywood once more, displays its appalling lack of normal human conventional behavior- whether Norman Polanski, or David Letterman, its  Ego,Ego,Ego. One can only wonder where the audience came from. America, where is the outrage for this outrageous disrepectful behavaior.

    Letterman is fine; he never was the “Family Values” type. Yes, he probably cheated on his girlfriend now wife. But at least he does go around claiming he is Mr. “Family Values” like some of our politicians (can you just see the grin on all “Fake News” reporters/ commentators and the Palin’s fringe). This has been a tough summer, for Dave, for our economy but at least he did not end up on the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Sanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC).

    Seriously – David Lettermen???!! Comrades – Who the f*#@ cares??? Who cares about this piece of crap and it is any surprise at the shear ego involved? More important things going on in the world. Newspapers are wasting ink diving into the drivel of this episode.

      Whoa, Matrix settle.

      The connection here is that he is often political and manipulates and degrades women. He consistently cheated on his girlfriend/wife. He threw his sexual partner aside because of her age. Or was he moving on to the next fool hoping that she will be “the one” riding off to the sunset with him. He always steps into the political arena and uses his media power to degrade the conservative platform especially Sarah Palin and her family. So let the media come around and put him in his place. Hopefully, that will no longer be in front of the camera. He is a narcissist, not funny and washed up.

        He is an egomaniac who thinks he’s funny…but he hasn’t been in a while. But because he is a darling of the left wing nuts the media will never put him in his place. He’s a lecherous old coot but he’s not going to get the lashing you think. Imagine if he was Rush, Glenn, or even Dick Morris though! Let the tabloids have this one. I can’t justify giving him any publicity. His ratings jumped 22% – after his disclosure – is whats being reported. His fans are as whacked as he is. Talk about Stupid Human Tricks.

      Seriously Matrix, you come up with a freakin post! All I recall is the freakin Rice Story- our stats are in the toilet lately–hint hint hint—geez, though I would try something to comment on and,………GOD guns and guts– time for some godliness in our sorry state of affairs in the USA- and in our blog.
