Marriage and family
The David Letterman Regina Lasko love story began in February 1986. David was still seeing comedy writer Merrill Markoe at the time he began dating Regina.
After his relationship with Merrill hit the rocks, he continued dating Regina. The two were partners for over two decades before they finally decided to get married.
They became husband and wife secretly on March 19, 2009, at the courthouse in Choteau, Montana after being together for 23 years.
David announced that they had gotten married on his show and also explained why it took them so long to do so.
Few months after their wedding, David was accused of having affairs with several female employees of his show.
On October 1, 2009, Letterman told his audience all about the allegations of s*xual affairs.
He revealed that three weeks before the taping of that particular episode of the show, he had received a package with a note that said,
I know that you do some terrible terrible things and I can prove that you do these terrible things ...
He admitted that the items in the package were enough proof that he did the things he was being accused of and being blackmailed for.
He also stated that the blackmailer revealed his plans to write a screenplay with the details of his affairs if he was not paid a sum of $2 million.
Through the help of an attorney, the TV host gave the blackmailer a counterfeit $2 million cheque. After this, the extortionist revealed his plans to write a book with details of Letterman's affairs.
Letterman's blackmailer was Robert 'Joe' Halderman, an ex-boyfriend of one of Letterrmen's assistants Stephanie Birkitt with whom he had an affair.
Halderman decided to make quick millions off David after he found Stephanie Birkitt's diary with details of her affair with the famous TV host. Halderman was later charged in court and sentenced to six months in prison for extortion.
Regina's marriage to Letterman is not his first. The TV host was first married to Michelle Cook from 1968 to 1977.
