Is David Letterman a VICTIM or a SCUMBAG??? Your thoughts?
Readers of this topic also read:
D. Letterman was having "Affairs" with his subordinates, while living with his "Live-in Girlfriend (Who he recently married)
A TV producer (From another section) found this out and threatened to "Out" him unless D. Letterman coughed up $2 million for the silence.
D. Letterman and his lawyer went to the cops who set up the sting and so D. Letterman is looked upon as a "Victim" of a greedy scumbag blackmailer.
There's a bit of a problem with my perception...
You're living with another female, but cheating on her.
Worse yet, you are doing with subordinates..That's low class.
You apologize on TV?? How about to her and then tell the audience "I apologized to my wife and she's decided to forgive me and thank you precious" (Otherwise, he's acting like J. Swaggert)
Frankly, he's playing a good hand in which he's looked on as victim but he's used his position to also be a victimiser.
- I think what is really tough is being in the lime light and having your every move scrutinized. I am glad he did not fall for the blackmail attempt.
He stood up to the plate and faced the consequences of going public. I think that right there is a honorable thing to do.
It is easy for us to cast stones when in fact we can lead private lives. We also are not idolized by many many admirers. Temptation does not come as often as for someone in the public eye.
But for those that badger him for being disloyal.......i am really wondering if you had a bevy of beauties frolicking at your feet.....could you say no?
A TV producer Robert Joe Halderman (From another section) found this out and threatened to "Out" him unless D. Letterman coughed up $2 million for the silence.
It seems that Stephanie Birkitt has known Robert Joe Halderman for 15 years. Reported Friday that she is still his girlfriend. They were supposedly still "seeing" each other when Birkitt had her affair with Letterman as well.
Also reported that a source informed them that Stephanie Birkitt knew nothing of Robert Halderman's plans to extort Letterman and that she was "mortified."
Stephanie Birkitt was a "Late Show with David Letterman" staffer, often playing the foil for many small comedy skits on the show. According to Newsday, she also lived with David Letterman for some time before Letterman married Regina Lasko, with whom he fathered a child in 2003, in March. So why is everyone so interested in Stephanie Birkitt? Where is the scandal in revealing the name of Stephanie Birkitt? It was public knowledge that David Letterman and Stephanie Birkitt had an affair and lived together, so what has provoked such a desire to know more about the 34-year-old former staffer?
Keep in mind Regina Lasko (wife) was also a staffer and worked for Dave before he finally married her.
- Is it fair to have the personal life of a person in the limelight on every news stand and every TV channel?
I understand what many of you are saying.......if it happened to anyone else in their place of employment we would be bounced. Setting that issue aside.....is it really any of our business what another does in their private life.
Who are we to judge...."Let he who is without sin cast the first stone".
