Dave's Stupid Wife Trick

It takes a special level of deception to bring your mistress on family vacation with your wife and young son, but that's what David Letterman did, according to the New York Post. Letterman apparently invited much-younger assistant and paramour Stephanie Birkitt along on cozy family vacations, including at least one jaunt to the Caribbean island of St. Bart's. As one source put it, Letterman's wife, Regina Lasko, "has to be really, really pissed" at Letterman for his brazen behavior. Letterman's infidelity became public on-air last week, as Letterman admitted that Birkitt's ex-boyfriend, CBS News journalist Robert "Joe" Halderman had attempted to blackmail him over the affair.
