Letterman's Former Hookup Banned from CBS Set

10/7/2009 5:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Stephanie Birkitt -- the woman at the center of the David Letterman sex scandal -- has been banned from setting foot on the CBS set where the "Late Show" is filmed.



Birkitt used to be David's assistant -- appearing on the "Late Show" numerous times -- and later became his personal attorney. It was Birkitt's ex-boyfriend -- Robert Halderman -- who discovered Letterman's secret relationship with her ... and then allegedly threatened to release the scandalous information unless Letterman forked over $2 million.

Sources tell TMZ that security at CBS is well aware of Birkitt's ban from the set.

Worldwide Pants just issued the following statement: "Stephanie is on paid leave of absence ... she has not been banned from the Ed Sullivan Theatre."

But TMZ just spoke with someone associated with security at Letterman who just told us, "Security got a verbal order that she is 'banned' from the property for the time being."

Letterman married to make it easier on Harry not to be called the bastard child.

It turns out, dear Old Dad screws young girls at work while dear Old Dad had a 23-26 year relationship with Harry's dear Old Mom.

Nice going dear Old Dad. You didn't think of your wife, Regina Lasko, you didn't think of your only son, Harry Letterman, named after YOUR dear Old Dad. You didn't think of your dear Old Mom, Dorothy Letterman, you didn't think of your older and younger sisters.

Letterman is a rich Dirty Old Man who is self-absorbed. Climb on your Montana Horse, instead of climbing on young girls, you selfish slob!

I don't appreciate the immoral acts of David Letterman and his betrayal of his long term girlfriend now wife. But, he is like the rest of us and is not without sin. I do admire his being one of the first along with the Travoltas for deciding not to cave into blackmail. I hope the Regina can work it out but the humiliation must be tremendous. I have no doubt that David Letterman will bend over backwards to correct the foolish decisions he has made. I think the most surprising is as a high paid celebrity he choose a woman who is nothing more than plain but that is beside the point.

I think if I were the Birknett woman I would be kicking myself for screwing up a very promising career. She is done in this business and not for sleeping with dave but supporting a blackmailer. So stupid of both these people to have lost everything for nothing. I hope more celebs decide that we as the viewing public are forgiving. It is going to have to be something truly dispicable like Mia Farrows ex and his ongoing relationship with someone who was like a daughter to him. Yet that seems to have not affected the respect celebs have for him and the same with Polanski. Anyway, I hope it all works out, definately not the crime of the century and I believe I for one have watched dave eat enough crow.

He's just another Idiot    

Letterman is a Bore and not funny at all. How much did he pay his assistants to have sex with him? Must be LOTS of money because he is SO repulsive. His ratings may be up because people like to see a "celebrity" act like an Idiot.

I have two conflicting opinions about this. 1) It's always the woman who gets screwed by the more powerful man and this should be a warning to women in the workplace. 2) She slept with a taken man, whether he was married or dating his wife is of no matter. She made her bed, now she has to lay in it.

Dave will pay her off just like the other bimbos who held their noses while the saggy old man did them.
Lucky for her, she couldn't get hired at the post office now.
Dave is a moron for diddling around with a 4 when he could have been banging 10's all day.

Letterman is such a loser. Good thing NBC ditched him for Leno in place of Carson. He's mean-spirited, creepy, and ugly now. And the drones in his audience laughing and clapping to anything he says is really pathetic.

I like David Letterman and I wish this story would go away. However, it is not right to banned Stepahine from CBS. It appears she is taking the blame when David should be held highly accountable being that he was her boss and should have known better.

They are both adults and it is time to move on.
Love you David

So Letterman can sexually abuse and harrass his employees then they are punished because this old bastard can't keep his hands to himself and his pants zipped
