Uma, Oprah, Letterman

In a very surprising move, talk show host, David Letterman, who's typically reclusive and and extremely, private will sit down with Oprah to discuss the sex scandal that rocked his world -- and new marriage -- in 2009.

On the special episode of  "Oprah's Next Chapter," Letterman, 65, reveals never before known details about his longtime affair with former Late Night staffer Stephanie Birkitt as also divulges the scoop on other affiars he had with sundry other staffers. Additionally, the Indiana native will confide to his former adversary (Winfrey and Letterman famously feuded -- and shunned one another's shows for 16 years before reconciling on his show in December of 2005) how the revelation affected his 7-month marriage to his longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko, the mother of his only child, 9 year-old Harry.

In 2009, a disgruntled ex Late Night producer, Robert "Joe" Halderman, attempted to blackmail Letterman by threatening to make public the sordid details if the host didn't pay him $2 million. Rather than succumbing to the extortion, Letterman revealed the information himself before a live audience (and millions of viewers) during the opening monologue of his show.

The fallout to his career was minimal but, as he'll discuss with Winfrey, he had to work hard to regain Lasko's trust and rebuild his marriage.

The special episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" airs January 6th on the OWN network. Consult your local listings for time and channel number.

I’m really excited to see Letterman on Oprah’s Next Chapter. This is going to be a classic interview, considering the two talk show hosts once had a long standing rivalry of sorts. I hadn’t realized his affair was with a staffer. My DISH coworker first told me about this interview so I’ll definitely be tuning in. I won’t be home when it airs so I’ll be recording it on my DISH Hopper. This DVR can record and store up to 2,000 hours of entertainment. I never have to worry about running out of time.

But look at the dates. I've been following the Univ of AL reports. After the August 20 announcement of 54 cases, eight days passed with no updates from Tuscaloosa, either the campus or city media, until today. Now there is news again. Updates on total cases? No. Reports on class absences? No. The only reason there is new news now is because 4 or 5 football players have come down with it.

In any wide variety of making or presentation you want to believe composing essay or dissertation concerning institutional wording (all of the university), and also your audience (which have been studying your dissertation).
