On Sunday's episode of Oprah's Next Chapter, David Letterman opened up about the affair heard around the world. "I have no one to blame but myself," the 65-year-old Late Show With David Letterman host told Oprah Winfrey.
Just recently, the New York Post ran a piece in which many former staffers dished on David Letterman, painting the picture of a guy with supercharged "sexual electricity." Regina Lasko is really no different from these other ladies, considering that she also used to work for Dave and began dating him while he had a serious girlfriend. And not to say that she still can't be hurt by his infidelity, but as someone who was once "the other woman," is it fair for her to hold a grudge against Dave for too long?
Rumor has it that Regina Lasko has thrown her husband David Letterman out of their home. After news of his infidelity came to light, Letterman was given the opportunity to come clean, it's said. The results were not up to par and she is waiting the rest of the year to figure out what she wants to do. She's giving him the same time to figure out if he'd like to continue seeing Stephanie Birkitt or commit fully to his family.
Blackmail. Revenge. Office romance. Infidelity. The Dave Letterman story has it all. A few allegations have been floating about suggesting that the genial comic hosted more than one late show at the Ed Sullivan Theater. We'll probably never know the full extent of what went on because Letterman is such a private dude, but we can likely assume that a few of these allegations are factual and actual. And guess what? I'm really having a hard time seeing the overwhelming wrong in this perfect storm.
Stephanie Birkitt, the woman at the center of the Letterman drama, wrote in her diary that she continued having a relationship with Dave, even after she moved in with Joe Halderman, the man who eventually tried to blackmail the comedian. Perhaps his extortion scheme was motivated in part by his anger at Birkitt and Letterman. More at YourTango's Celeb Love.
David Letterman said during his show last night that someone had tried to blackmail him for $2 million, over allegations that Letterman had sexual relationships with some of the women who worked for him. YourTango has the details about his wife, Regina Lasko, the extortionist, Joe Halderman, and Letterman's former assistant, Stephanie Birkitt.
