The New York Post is reporting that David Letterman is quite the efficient multitasker. Apparently David along with his wife Regina Lasko, six year-old son Harry, and girlfriend Stephanie Birkitt would all go on vacations (yea that’s plural) together to the Caribbean. Lasko thought that the much younger Birkitt was an employee/close friend that was on their expensive vacation to St.Barts to help out with the Late Show. Lasko, 48, “has to be really, really pissed” to learn recently that Letterman was so brazen as to have invited his paramour on vacations with their 6-year-old son, Harry, a source said.
Letterman’s wife, Regina Lasko, had no clue the comic was having an affair with his pretty, much younger assistant Stephanie Birkitt — a $200,000-a-year employee — when she was tagging along on the cozy, romantic trips, sources said.
Letterman is one penny pinching guy. Can you imagine how much money he saved by having his mistress on his luxurious vacations? Stephanie and David must have gotten some thrill with Lasko in the room next door while they banged each other’s brains out. Sorry Letterman but that was a dumb move. Real dumb.
David Letterman made a public apology to his wife during the taping of his show on Monday after the extortion plot was revealed last week. “She has been horribly hurt by my behavior, and when something happens like that, if you hurt a person and it’s your responsibility, you try to fix it,” he said during his opening monologue. “At that point, there’s only two things that can happen: Either you’re going to make some progress and get it fixed, or you’re going to fall short and perhaps not get it fixed, so let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me.”
Letterman’s apology did not stop with his wife of 7 months it went on to include his staff also. “I’m terribly sorry that I put the staff in that position. Inadvertently, I just wasn’t thinking ahead,” he said. “And, moreover, the staff here has been wonderfully supportive to me, not just through this furor, but through all the years that we’ve been on television and especially all the years here at CBS, so, again, my thanks to the staff for, once again, putting up with something stupid I’ve gotten myself involved in.”
Hopefully David’s wife forgives him maybe he can pull a Kobe and buy her a make-up gift?
The David Letterman Show was not so funny last night. Letterman admitted to having sex with an unknown number of female staffers and also told the audience about the $2 million extortion plot. The 62-year-old comedian skipped his customary Top Ten list, telling his studio audience he wanted to tell them a “little story.” He went on to describe his three week ordeal with a 48 hours producer who wanted to write a screenplay about Letterman’s past sexual relationships with staffers.
“He’s going to take all of the terrible stuff he knows about my life — and there seems to be quite a lot of terrible stuff he knows about — and he’s going to put it in a movie.”
Letterman was nervous, funny, and serious at times. It was a good idea to tell everyone upfront but he could have told his audience this story was not meant to be funny. The studio audience was totally oblivious to what Letterman was talking about.
Incredibly, Letterman took part in a sting operation against the blackmailer. The Late Night Host actually met the extorter Robert Halderman, handed over a counterfeit $2 million check and had him arrested on Thursday.
The extortion plot and Letterman’s sexual relationships was not news to his wife of 7 months Regina Laskoe who is also the mother of their 5 year-old son Harry. Laskoe was a writer for Letterman and they dated on and off since 1986. It looks like David is in the clear at home but it looks like there could be some possible sexual harassment lawsuits.
Unfortunately, Letterman seems to attract all of the crazy people in the world. Back in 2005 cops uncovered a plot to kidnap Letterman’s then 22-month-old son, Harry. A 43 year-old Montana man named Kelly Allen Frank was arrested with plotting to break into the “Late Show” host’s isolated 2,700-acre ranch and snatch Harry and the child’s au pair. Frank wanted $5 million for their return. Kelly Allen Frank received a 10 year sentence.

Sarah Palin loves the camera and can’t seem to get out of the spot light. Now she’s mad because of a few jokes that David Letterman told earlier this week. He joked that Palin’s daughter got “knocked up” by Yankees star and lady killer Alex Rodriquez during their recent trip to New York’s Yankee Stadium. He later stated that the joke was aimed at Palin’s 18-year-old daughter Bristol, even though her 14-year-old daughter, Willow, was the daughter that Palin was with at the game.
While being interviewed by Matt Lauer this morning on the Today Show, she had stated that Letterman owes an apology to “young women across the country” for making a lewd joke about her daughter.
“He doesn’t have to apologize to me,” she said. “I would like to see him to apologize to young women across the country for contributing to that thread throughout our culture that makes it seem OK to talk about [statutory rape].”
Letterman being the funny man he is, kept the joke running on last nights show saying “everything’s fine now” between the two adding that Palin invited him to go out hunting. “I’m Dave Letterman,” he said, “making friends wherever I go.”
Who the hell cares about Palin, we thought Dave’s jokes were HILARIOUS. Well, anything she can do to get back in the spotlight. Congrat’s on another big win Sarah!
Wow Howard Stern, tell’em how you really feel huh? Well that he sure did, when he went on the David Letterman Show last night. He obviously had quite a bone to pick, because he went straight at Jay Leno by letting the public know that he didn’t and doesn’t like him one bit.
“Let me say something, now we can talk. I’ve never seen anybody who behaves like a robot like this guy. I watched his final show, he says goodbye to the tonight show and HE’S READING IT OFF A TELEPROMPTER for crying out loud. Where’s the emotion and where’s the humanity. HERE’S THE HOST THAT WE WANT TO WATCH”, Howard Stern stated while pointing at Dave.
Apparently, Howard has a bit of a grudge because it sounded as if he was upset that Jay didn’t put Howard on his show before Howard became big. Who did? Dave did, so that’s where his loyalty resides. I have to admit though, who the hell wants to put a no-name on a number one hit show? I wouldn’t either. I’m ridin’ with Jay on this one!!!
Late night television host David Letterman secretly got married this weekend to his longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko! Letterman who at 61 years old is the last of the mohicans almost missed his own wedding when he and his son were in their pickup truck and it got stuck in the mud causing a delay of an hour to the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau, Montana.
So now we think, `Well, somebody’ll come.’ No, nobody comes along. Nobody comes along — it’s Thursday afternoon; who’s coming along? Zorro? No, nobody. So I get out of the truck and I walk 2 miles back to the house into a 50-mile-an-hour wind,” Letterman said.
“It’s not Beverly Hills, it’s Montana, for God’s sakes. And the whole way, I’m thinking, ‘See, smart ass, see, see, you try to get married, this is what happens,’” he said.
Their son Harry asked if they were still going to town and he was assured that they were.
“And he gets very upset because mom had told him if I wasn’t back in an hour, the deal was off,” Letterman said.
Luckily Letterman made in time! As of right now there was no honeymoon at least not yet. Letterman was back on the job Monday to tell everyone the good news. Congratulations!
