Last Drop of Water
night, David Letterman, who finally had recovered from his tasteless
joke in June about A-Rod having sex with Sarah Palin’s
teenage daughter, admitted to the world that a man had tried but failed
to extort $2M from him. This man, whom Letterman did not identify, wanted
to punish Dave for being involved sexually with “several”
female members of the Late Show staff.
is this mystery man, and why would he care enough about David Letterman’s
sex life to blackmail him?
Halderman, Emmy-award-winning CBS TV producer now in jail
for this crime, was angry at Letterman for boinking his live-in girlfriend,
Stephanie Birkitt. Why? Ms. Stephanie, who appeared many times on the
Late Show, was Dave’s special assistant and
Stephanie kept quite the diary and plenty of mementos to document her
affair with Letterman. Girls tend to do that. Halderman delivered this
damning evidence to Letterman three weeks ago as part of his extortion
amazing how self-destructive, stupid, blind, jealous, and vengeful people
can become over sex. Sex. It’s available everywhere! You’d
think they were in a desert, fighting over the last drop of water.
look at the career-ending stupidity of the three players:
Letterman: A wealthy, high-profile entertainer with a lot
to lose, he has access to the hottest women in the world. Yet, he
put everything on the line by nailing young women on his staff —
and Stephanie is the one made public to date. Stupid, self-destructive
behavior? You betcha. He thought he could keep these dalliances secret,
especially from his wife. Astounding. How can the honchos at CBS trust
him now? His staff? Companies like IBM would have fired him for this.
Expect to see sexual-harassment lawsuits materialize, as hungry lawyers
salivate in the wings.
Birkitt: She was having sex with a superstar boss while living
with her boyfriend. Future? She’ll have a tough time being taken
seriously as a professional — and a girlfriend or wife. According
to Gawker, Letterman allegedly paid her tuition at Yeshiva University
Law School. Sex in exchange for financial gain. Don’t we have
a term for that?
Halderman: How he thought he could successfully extort Letterman
is laughable — over a woman, no less. Most women cheat
on their husbands and boyfriends. Why was he angry at Dave? His live-in
girlfriend betrayed him, not Dave. She chose to bed another
man. Robert can’t blame Letterman for Stephanie’s choice.
Misplaced anger. Career over. Utter stupidity.
NoNonsense Bottom Line
is like fire: it can warm one’s house or destroy it, depending
on one’s knowledge of and ability to handle it. The three players
in this sad saga — Dave, Stephanie, and Robert — proved
they lack knowledge and ability, and now they are burned.
many men and women have paired up, and continue to pair up, incapable
of handling sex? Most. The divorce and cheating rates prove it. The
misery index proves it. That’s why so many of them now avoid relationships:
they’ve been burned.
