EXTORTION CHARGES ARRAIGNMENT
David Letterman left his home one day to find himself into a whole heap of trouble, lol. Yeah, i said heap, but back to the story. Outside his home, A man was waiting with a letter and documents. Mind you it was only 6am as the man, Robert Halderman (Resides in Norwalk, Connecticut), approached Letterman with a full script of how he could ruin his reputation. He demanded to meet at 8am and Letterman agreed with his attorney. At the meeting, he demanded 2 million dollars to remain quiet on the story.
I guess it bugged David Letterman f0r 3 weeks! Not to mention its a hefty blackmail bill to pay, which led to the on-air confession that he did, in fact, have sexual relations with his staff members. Yes, another Clinton type scandal. I think the audience took it as a joke at first and really never thought it was true until media plastered it everywhere, including me 😉 Anyhow, Mr. Halderman was arrested for the blackmail, who is an employee of CBS for 48 Hours Mystery show. He was arrested at his office off 57th street in Manhattan and arraign as of recently ( i got the facts from that court report ).
Now Letterman is battling the media in keeping this story from getting as far as Mr. Halderman threatened as multiple staff members are coming out the wood works to give their story. I am updating pictures of these woman below, so have fun sharing them on Twitter. Stephanie Birkitt (Wake Forest Univ. Intern) is pictured below, she worked on the same show as Robert Halderman… after doing her intern in 1996 and graduating to return to NY in 1997. Smh, doesn’t this seem like a big nasty love triange, where Halderman and Letterman slept with Ms. Birkitt. One media source reports she lived with Halderman and he stole her diary that detailed the encounters with Letterman. How is he gonna stalk letterman for a $2million extortion and have documents that included a little diary page being photocopied, com’on guys, recession isn’t that bad for rich folks! However, Halderman was divorced by his wife as she moved their 11yr old son to Colorado. Maybe he lost his marbles, who knows? Wow, this is getting deep, lol.
Did you know Letterman’s current wife was previously a staff worker too? Take it easy and stay tuned to the nerd report on twitter trends.
HERE IS STEPHANIE on THE SHOW!
