Stephanie Birkitt: Banned From Late Show Set

by at . Comments

Stephanie Birkitt, the woman at the center of the David Letterman sex and blackmail scandal, has been banned from New York City's Ed Sullivan Theater.

The 34-year-old former aide, who appeared on the Late Show numerous times in comedy bits, was later offered a job by Dave as his personal attorney.

She and Letterman had a sexual affair of indeterminate length.

It was Robert Halderman - the ex-boyfriend of Stephanie Birkitt - who found out about the pair's secret relationship and then allegedly threatened to release the scandalous information unless Letterman forked over $2 million.

Halderman has been arrested for this crime but is free on bail.

CBS is aware of Stephanie Birkitt's ban from David Letterman's set.

Birkitt, who was allegedly cheating on Robert "Joe" Halderman - Letterman's accused extortionist - with the Late Show host, wrote all about it in her private diary.

She also wrote Dave some "trashy" love letters that will embarrass them both if and when they become public, according to a report in the New York Daily News.

While David Letterman's wife, Regina Lasko, was not married to him until earlier this year, the two have a son, born in 2004, and had been together for 20 years.

Letterman apologized on air to Regina and his staff Monday night.

I'll bet Dave's wife forced him to get Birkitt banned. If she didn't, she should. Dave paid for the girl's law school, then hired her to be his "personal attorney." Dave's wife has *got* to be pissed...

Still, he was not married at the time. Maybe he was still looking. Is that a crime?

That is just sad. Why is she the only one? They both did it not only her.

Even though he wasn't married at the time, he's been with his wife for over 20 years so he was screwing around while in a serious relationship. Yet, he was always bashing celebrities for sleazy behavior. I've been a fan of Letterman's since his short-lived morning show in the early '80s, so this is a huge disappointment. The whole thing stinks.

Telling how Dave always picked out very young Plain Janes to have affairs with. And yuck, he is old enough to be this young womans father. His wife and long time partner is as dull and plain looking as water too. He must feel very insecure about himself. I think his choice of these young rather plain women ~ Much younger with such blah looks is a very telling story about old Dave.
