Stephanie Birkitt: On David Letterman, On the Late Show

by at . Comments

It's now public knowledge that David Letterman carried on an affair with a female staffer. The talk show host himself admitted this last night.

To her horror, that employee has now been identified as Stephanie Birkitt.

Considered one of Dave's most trusted staffers, Birkitt earned a degree from Wake Forest University in 1997; worked at 48 Hours upon graduation (where she first met Letterman's alleged extortioner, Robert Halderman); and joined the The Late Show months later.

She actually appeared on air at times, most notably in sketches such as“ Know Your Current Events,” as seen below. Fast forward to the 3:15 mark to watch Birkitt (referred to as "Vicki) interact with Dave and an audience member:

Reportedly, Stephanie developed a sexual relationship with Letterman that ended in 2003, prior to the birth of his son, Harry. She was living with Halderman at the time.

In 2004, in an interview with The Fort Worth Star Telegram, Birkitt said of her boss:

“He’s just playful. We play catch sometimes in the office, and we all go to screenings together. We eat food together, we sit around and watch TV together and goof on people. And he teases me in real life, too, but I give it back a lot more in real life.”


Opinions are flying in about David Letterman's dalliances with Stephanie Birkitt. What's yours?


You lost me, friend. I am tkliang about, I imagine I get what youre saying. I recognize what you’re saying, however you just appear to have forgotten that might be other folks from the world who view this challenge for what it truly is and may perhaps not trust you. You could be turning away alot of individuals who was lovers of this website.


Why don't some of you get a life, you people feed on what you can in the news. I don't care what Dave Letterman, Bill Clinton, or any other person does sexually. Why should you care ??? In my opinion most of you have done the same. Now you want to talk crap about some one or any one in the spotlight that might be a celebrity or politician. As stated before,, Get A Life


Dave you lucky SOB. Stepahnie is the hottest and I could sense something was going on between you two. You lucky Man...PPAP


How do we know that Birkitt isn't in with Halderman on the extortion idea and that Halderman is just the fall guy? There's been many movie plots made on this same type of story. However,
if this were to happen in another work place outside of TV/showbusiness, one OR both of the individuals would be let go.
Then that's another lawsuit case to consider.


letterman equals PIG


this is all insanity


dude what where you thinking?


geeze letterman with all the women who work in your studio you choose this one...


I've watched Letterman since 81 when I was still in high school his show is way better than Leno's and dave is class act.Dave gets attacked and the so called moral majority right wing pounce on dave if this had happed to Rush these people would be quiet and the liberal left would be on the offencive. The culture war in this country is pathetic and out of control, gets worse every year each side is deludid It's going to win, the USA needs to take page out of the UK,s book and keep your polotics and Relgious beliefs to your self so we can all live in peace.


Can everyone calm down, so a guy had a concensual affair with someone he worked with, I'm sorry the attention being paid to this is ridiculous. Not the first time something like this has happened, won't be the last. The extortion deal, that's the crime here and that's what should be focused on, the affair is completely irrelovent, that is between Dave, his now wife who I am sure is hurt and his staffer. Not sure why everyone thinks they have the right to poke into everyone elses business nowadays. Remember at the time of this happening, Dave was not married, although in a relationship, who knows what goes on behind closed doors between adults, thats the way it should stay.
