Can everyone calm down, so a guy had a concensual affair with someone he worked with, I'm sorry the attention being paid to this is ridiculous. Not the first time something like this has happened, won't be the last. The extortion deal, that's the crime here and that's what should be focused on, the affair is completely irrelovent, that is between Dave, his now wife who I am sure is hurt and his staffer. Not sure why everyone thinks they have the right to poke into everyone elses business nowadays. Remember at the time of this happening, Dave was not married, although in a relationship, who knows what goes on behind closed doors between adults, thats the way it should stay.

Has anyone considered that Stephanie may have been the one that started this or is at least equally to blame? That is, if blame is even necessary. Things happen. Famous, powerful people have an attraction, and yes, they are human. Drop it. It is probably just to boost ratings anyway. Just ask Hugh Grant?

The whole situation is sad....but does anybody rem Bob Barker, he admitted to at least one affair with a employee( model) and was sued at least twice by other staffers for the enviroment he created....CBS didnt fire him.....My own simple opinion is when the word " Intern" is used...It implies a very young person...still an adult but young....Same with Clinton, other Pres had affairs , like FDR, Ike , JFK. etc. But the dreaded word intern wasnt attached..... I feel the same about Letterman... But doesnt anybody think its wrong why everyone doesnt hate the Blackmailer?

How appropriate Dave's production company is called Worldwide Pants... because his pants seem to be dropping worldwide!

Im your avid fan Mr Letterman until you confess what you did to your female staffs. they are the victims of your fame and money,work sexual harassment/where the law????????

perfect example of what's wrong with this nation. When people actually support this kind of thing. I gave up on letterman and the entire network news last Fall and this just supports my decision all the more.

Refreshing to see that these women are not claiming to have been "intimidated" by a "superior". Letterman was single, the women were adults and the sex was consentual. People date co-workers every day. How many couples met on the job - millions? This man is a comedian - not a politician, teacher, priest or anyone else who puts themselves up as a moral compass. Leave Dave alone.

I particularly enjoy the kneejerk labeling that comes with the territory of western-capitalistic hypocrisy: someone mentioned that Dave's a "womanizer." Well, let me assure you, as one poster stated that women will screw anything that makes more $$ than their current b/f, that I've encountered more than one man's share of "manizers." Women are beginning to catch on that they bear part of the responsibility in establishing and destroying relationships, so the labelers are as old as woolly mammoths and just as fossilized.

Yeah, you go, Dave (and Stephanie). They do make a nice couple, although too much emphasis is placed on marriage (in the West), so why ruin a great relationship with co-ownership and marriage's demon of power, control and domination. Europeans and South Americans have a healthy view of it all: everyone has a secret lover, everyone knows it, just don't bring it home, not one hint of it, ever. Otherwise, I Dave handled it brilliantly, kind of like Mel Gibson's character in "Ransom" putting the pressure on the real criminal.
