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.
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.
Yikes. This Letterman thing is not going away. According to various news sources, more than one other woman has come forward with her own tale of inter-office shenanigans. One of the office romances was supposedly with an intern and the other a regular staffer. Who knows what's true and what's extortion.
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.
