Letterman Apologizes for Affairs

Fresno, CA David Letterman began his monologue with self-deprecating one-liners.

"I got into my car this morning and the navigation lady wasn't speaking to me."

"It's chilly outside my house, it's chilly inside my house."

The late night funnyman turned serious when he publically apologized to his wife.

"My wife Regina, she has been horribly hurt by my behavior and then something happens like that if you hurt a person and it's your responsibility, you try to fix it," said Letterman, "So let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me."

The on-air remarks followed Letterman's affairs and alleged $2-million dollar extortion attempt by the long time CBS producer. Robert Halderman, a producer for "48 hours mystery," has pleaded not-guilty.

While Letterman is the alleged victim in the extortion case, to hear the defendant's lawyer tell it, he may face legal trouble of his own. The lawyer said there is evidence Letterman sexually harassed employees of "The Late Show."
