David Letterman was forced to admit that he had an affair with longtime personal assistant Stephanie Birkit after a CBS employee attempted to extort the “Late Show” host. Letterman publicly apologized to his staff and wife, Regina Lasko, for his actions. “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," Letterman said. "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." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Mike Coppola/Getty Images)
