David Letterman's surprise marriage to Regina Lasko, which took place in Montana last week, created quite a buzz when it was revealed yesterday. The 61-year-old Late Show host officially spilled the beans at the Monday taping of his CBS program.

The happy couple, who are the parents of a five-year-old son, Harry, have been together for many years. Here's what Dave had to say about tying the knot with Regina Lasko after all that time, and what happened en route to the courthouse ...

"On Thursday, at 3 PM, March 19, 2009 at the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau, Montana, I was married to Regina Lasko. Regina and I began dating in February of 1986, and I said, ‘Well, things are going pretty good, let’s just see what happens in about ten years.’ I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years, and I - honestly, whether this happened or not - I secretly felt that men who were married admired me ... like I was the last of the real gunslingers, you know what I’m saying?"

David Letterman and longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko have gotten hitched.

The host of The Late Show with David Letterman and Lasko tied the knot Thursday evening, according to Us Weekly, after more than 10 years of dating.

The two met mover a decade ago when Lasko worked for him on his show, and Regina is the mother of his son, Harry, who was born in November 2003.

In 2007, David Letterman told Oprah Winfrey that his son Harry has made a "huge difference" in his life - but doesn't always get his sense of humor.

Said Dave, "Mommy has to tell him a lot that I'm just teasing."

Prior to marrying Regina Lasko, Letterman was previously married for seven years to his college sweetheart, Michelle Cook. Congrats to the couple!

UPDATE: Regina Lasko found herself back in the news in September 2009 after Letterman's affairs with members of his staff became public knowledge.

Dave had been with Regina Lasko for 20 years, but apparently carried on at least one serious relationship with a Late Show staffer. He said as much.

The woman, Stephanie Birkitt, later dated Robert Halderman, who is accused of trying to blackmail Letterman for $2 million to keep quiet about it.

There really isn't much to say about Joaquin Phoenix's visit to The Late Show last night, other than that he may want to stop hanging out with Snoop Dogg.

Bearded, spaced out and wearing sunglasses indoors, Phoenix may or may not have known where he was at that moment, uttering barely decipherable, monosyllabic answers about his film Two Lovers and career in general.

Things got so awkward that in order to break the ice, David Letterman posed this to the actor: "What can you tell us about your days with the Unibomber?"

It got worse. When the topic inevitably turned to his fledgling music career - for which he is supposedly giving up acting - Phoenix confirmed that hip-hop was his genre of choice, a revelation that sparked laughter from the audience.

"That's a joke?" he (slowly) snapped, clearly upset by the crowd reaction. "What do you have them on? What do you gas them up with? Is this nitrous?"

[crickets]

At the end of the interminable interview, Letterman summed it up as best he could: "Well, Joaquin, I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight." See below ...

Two Saturdays ago, comedic worlds collided as Tina Fey's Sarah Palin came face to face at least with the real Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

Fey's 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin, who was also on hand, shared his impressions of the Republican Vice Presidential candidate with David Letterman.

While he spoke very kindly of the show, and of Sarah Palin for the most part, Baldwin simply couldn't resist referring to the Alaska Governor as "Bible Spice" and not "someone who [he] wanted her hand on the nuclear button at any point."

Here's a portion of his Late Show interview ...

Lauren Conrad was interviewed by David Letterman on The Late Show last night, and if you've seen any of the talk show host's prior interactions with The Hills star and her reality TV counterparts, you know how funny that can be.

In the interview, Letterman suggested that maybe Lauren Conrad herself is to blame for her girl problems, then proceeded to skewer Brody Jenner (he "would live in a tree" if it weren't for reality TV) and Spencer Pratt ("what a weasel").

LC did get to talk about her clothing line and life on reality TV ...

The last time John McCain canceled an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, the host was not amused, and he has not let go of his fury.

McCain has been the butt of Letterman’s disdain (probably somewhat feigned, but certainly not entirely) since. So you knew he was gonna show up this time.

Late Show Interview

After a two-hour airport delay nearly stranded him in Philadelphia, the Republican presidential hopeful hired a helicopter to whisk him to N.Y. He made it!

Below is John McCain's entire interview last night, which he began by addressing his previous cancellation, explaining it simply, "I screwed up"  ...

After canceling an appearance last month at the last second and causing some bruised feelings (and hilarious rants, parts I and II) on David Letterman's part, John McCain is finally coming back to the Late Show this Thursday, October 16.

Unless the economy collapses a second time and he must suspend his bid for the presidency to rescue it. Or be interviewed by Katie Couric a few blocks over.

Arizona Sen. and Republican Presidential candidate John McCain from a previous appearance on The Late Show. He famously bailed on Letterman in September.

Meanwhile, his running mate, Alaska governor Sarah Palin, is set to appear on Saturday Night Live, the late-night show which has been skewering her of late.

Sarah Palin will appear Saturday, October 25, with a rehearsal date scheduled for the day before. No word on whether Tina Fey will be on the episode as well.

Fun with the John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket continues for David Letterman.

Last week, he poked fun at McCain for bailing on him. Last night, V.P. hopeful Sarah Palin was skewered during The Late Show's nightly Top Ten List.

Palin Runs

Palin has been attending "debate camp" (a.k.a. McCain's ranch) prepping for tonight's debate with Joe Biden. Which leads to the Top Ten list ...

Top Ten Things Overheard at Sarah Palin Debate Camp ...

10. “Let’s practice your bewildered silence”
9. “Can you try saying ‘Yes’ instead of ‘You betcha’?”
8. "Hey, I can see Mexico from here!”
7. “Maybe we’ll get lucky and there won’t be any questions about Iraq, taxes, or health care”
6. “We’re screwed!”
5. “Can I just use that lipstick-pit bull thing again?”
4. “We have to wrap it up for the day — McCain eats dinner at 4:30″
3. “Can we get Congress to bail us out of this debate?”
2. “John Edwards wants to know if you’d like some private tutoring in his van”
1. “Any way we can just get Tina Fey to do it?”

After multiple nights of hilarious rants, David Letterman has moved on from John McCain and has started picking on someone else: Raffaello Follieri!

Anne Hathaway stopped by The Late Show to promote her newest movie, Rachel Getting Married, which is generating acclaim for the terrific actress.

Oh, Dear!

But her talk with David Letterman eventually moved to the elephant in the room known as Raffaello Follieri. An uncomfortable Hathaway held her own as best she could, but Dave's impromptu interrogation grew awkward. Awkwardly funny, of course.

Later, Anne went on to discuss the dearth of celebrity gossip rumors about her since the breakup. Among them, that she's dating Brody Jenner. Probably untrue, since she doesn't even know who Brody Jenner is. Check out the intervew below ...
