    David Letterman made a shocking personal confession on his CBS Late Show Thursday, admitting he was the victim of a $2 million extortion attempt and that he had had sexual relations with female members of staff.

    Three weeks ago, according to a press release from reps of the TV host to PEOPLE and other news organizations, Letterman received a package whose sender claimed to have information about alleged sexual activity between the 62-year-old star and employees of his program.

    Threatening to go public with the news, the individual reportedly sought $2 million from Letterman, the current late-night ratings champ told his studio audience Thursday.

    "This morning, I did something I've never done in my life," Letterman said as the cameras rolled. "I had to go downtown and testify before a grand jury."

    In his testimony, Letterman said, he admitted to engaging in sexual relationships with staff members. "My response to that is, yes I have. Would it be embarrassing if it were made public? Perhaps it would."

    He added, "I feel like I need to protect these people I need to certainly protect my family."

    Having initially contacted the Manhattan District Attorney's special prosecution bureau, Letterman helped participate in a sting operation, eventually meeting and handing a counterfeit $2 million check to the alleged extortionist who was arrested on Thursday.

    Letterman and longtime girlfriend (since 1986) Regina Lasko were married in March. They have one child, a son, Harry, born in 2003.

    Re: Letterman sex scandal

    I used to like Letterman. His show was awesome when he first switched to CBS, but fell apart over time. Since we're both from Indiana, there was a "kinship" there sort of. But over the years, he's lost his comedic touch and his political side showing has also been a huge distraction. I don't want to watch late night comedy and see someone blasting a politician in a non-joking manner, no matter what side of the aisle they are on.

    As someone else mentioned, this does make him look really bad (as if he didn't already look that way) after the whole Sarah Palin kid thing. I do have to respect him though for coming clean on his own program. That took a lot of guts to do what he did. But having said that, I think this is the beginning of the end for him on late night. I'd be surprised if CBS doesn't dump him by the end of next year.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    What exactly does this have to do with Palin? I can assure you that Letterman is no quitter.

    You mean you're the only one to post on an actual politics forum and not know the history between Letterman and Sarah Palin's family? Really?????
