There is not a late-night host who is as brilliant and legendary as David Letterman. The talk show host has enjoyed a brilliant career and while his professional life leaves little to be desired, his personal life less so. From cheating scandals to being threatened over infidelity, Letterman has had a difficult personal life. But for all his difficulties, Letterman has always had the voice of Lasko to help him get over his personal humps. And considering how Lasko has put up with everything Letterman has thrown at her, she is a woman to be admired. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Regina Lasko.
Bits and pieces:
Regina Lasko was born on the 20th of November 1960, in the United States. Not much is known about Lasko’s early life and details on her family have never been revealed to the media. While Lasko was interested in films from a very young age, she wanted to work on the creative side of film making as compared to the glamorous side. So, Lasko started working as a producer and has enjoyed a few credits for her work. She made her debut as a unit manager on the 1988 episode of, Late Night with David Letterman: 6th Anniversary Special. She continued her role as the Unit manager the next year and was seen again on Late Night with David Letterman: 7th Anniversary Special. From 1987 to 1989, Lasko worked on Late Night with David Letterman and worked as unit manager in 21 episodes. Lasko was also left in charge of one of the SNL episodes in 1989. Her final credit came in Another World which was released in 1991. Most of what Lasko has done over the years has been closely linked with her marriage to Letterman.
Marriage to Letterman and scandals:
It is not known as to how and where Lasko and Letterman met. However, the pair stayed together for 20 years before tying the knot on the 19th of March, 2009. Letterman openly joked how long it took for him to tie the knot and went on record to say,
“I had avoided getting married pretty good [sic] for, like, 23 years, and … honestly, whether this happened or not, I secretly felt that men who were married admired me, like I was the last of the real gunslingers — you know what I’m saying?”
But the joy of marriage lasted only for six months as Letterman was accused of infidelity towards Lasko. He admitted on the show that he had cheated on Lasko and was being blackmailed by Joe Halderman, a TV producer. Letterman revealed that he had slept with many of the female staff on his show and Halderman wanted him to fork up over 2 million dollars. Even though he had all the money in the world to cover it up, Letterman took the high road and admitted the affair. Lasko was beyond hurt by the affair and Letterman admitted to the same on his show.
“When something happens like that, if you hurt a person and it’s your responsibility, you try to fix it. And at that point, there’s only two things that can happen: either you’re going to make some progress and get it fixed, or you’re going to fall short and perhaps not get it fixed, so let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me,”
But despite the affair and scandal, Lasko never left Letterman’s side and the pair had a son, Harry Joseph Letterman, born on the 3rd of November, 2003. Not much is known about Lasko and given her love for privacy, Lasko has rarely made an appearance on media and prefers to help her husband behind the scenes.
