David Letterman will talk to Oprah Winfrey about the sex scandal that rocked his life back in 2009.

On "Oprah's Next Chapter," scheduled to air Jan. 6, 2013, the very-private late night talk show host will discuss the extortion plot that caused him to reveal his past affairs with female members of his staff, and how he repaired his marriage with wife Regina Lasko, whom he had married earlier that year, according to E! News.

While taping the "Late Show" in October 2009, Letterman told his audience he was the victim of an extortion plot, saying that someone demanded $2 million from him to keep quiet about various sexual liaisons he had with members of his staff.

In a short promo clip for the show, Letterman looks uncomfortable as Winfrey asks probing questions, and delves into his battle with depression and his rivalry with Jay Leno (along with his supposed rivalry with her).

Can he explain what happened at the Oscars yet?

Letterman's appearance comes just a month after Winfrey traveled to his alma mater, Ball State University, for an intimate discussion about her life.
