Who was David Letterman's first wife?

David Letterman’s marriage with Michelle Cook ended in 1977. Nine years later, he started dating Lasko. In 2019, the two lovebirds said their “I Do’s.”

David Letterman cheated on Regina Lasko and was involved in a sex scandal.

In 2009, Letterman admitted to cheating on Lasko with several women who worked on the Late Show With David Letterman. He even slept with Stephanie Birkitt, his assistant who made regular appearances on the show. "I have no one to blame but myself," he said in a 2013 interview of his marital affair.

“I think if you’re going to have a flow chart of the responsibility for this circumstance, this sex scandal, my name is at the top. I’m not sure what it means, but I’m taking responsibility for it, trying to atone for it.”

Letterman decided to tell Lasko the truth about his affair after CBS producer, Joe Halderman, threatened to write a screenplay about the scandal.

Joe Halderman was dating Birkitt at the time, which is how he knew about Letterman's affair. The producer gave Letterman an ultimatum, however. For $2 million, he would not go through with the screenplay and keep his secret “safe.” Letterman accused him of extortion and came clean instead.

Lasko has forgiven him, but Letterman has not forgiven himself. 

"I don’t have that luxury,” he said. “I can’t forgive that behavior. I’m still trying to fix it. It hasn’t gone away. It will never go away,” Letterman said.
