David Letterman and Andre Agassi: Bye-bye hairpiece

On tonight's "Late Show with David Letterman," Dave speaks to Andre Agassi about something the host calls "more stunning than the drug revelation" -- the tennis player's mullet hairpiece.

"That is not my hair," the now-bald Agassi admitted when Letterman displayed a 1990 photo of the star with flowing blond locks.

"It's not a wig, it's a system, is that what we have going on there?" asked Dave.

"It's a weave system," said Agassi. "The night before the French Open final, I used the wrong conditioner and it started to come off... I've never prayed for a result in my life. I prayed that day for that wig to stay on. I had about 50 bobby pins holding it down."

One lucky lady winds up with a souvenir!

    Man! that woman got a bunch of things from the show for her birthday, that she felt comfortable announcing during the Q&A. Some people are shameless.
