Oh, this is not looking good. With David Letterman’s admission of an affair with Stephanie Birkitt and an extortion plot, it seems other details are emerging that make the late-night talk show host seem a bit on the creepy side. Oh, and other women are coming forward now, too. I feel sorry for his wife Regina Lasko and his son Harry.
Apparently there were other women long before Stephanie Birkitt. And secret dates. Um, ew.
A former Late Show employee has come forward, saying that they’re certain David Letterman was sexually involved with another female employee in the late 90’s!
Long before Stephanie Birkitt was even hired!!!!!
The former Late Show employee says that the woman was one of his “peers, a woman close to him, not an intern.”
The staffer went on to say that the Late Show crew didn’t find the affair to be scandalous because Letterman wasn’t married at the time, and even though they knew he had a girlfriend (Regina Lasko), Lasko never visited Dave at work, so it “wasn’t a big deal.” Yeah, I’m sure Regina doesn’t think it’s a big deal.
Seems that Letterman hired a personal intern, NYU student Holly Hester, in the early ’90’s and took her out on multiple dates!!!
While the Late Show was on hiatus, Letterman arranged a number of “secret dates” with Hester, which caused the young NYU student to fall “madly in love” with the late night talk show host.
So gross, if true, which, yeah, probably is. How will this affect his family? Can they stay together? Can Dave and his wife put this behind them, move forward? What will his son think when he’s older and understands what has happened?
