Anna Paid For EVERYthing, Now Folks Do

2/21/2007 6:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. Stern just said in court that he currently has no income of his own, and that he is "borrowing money from my parents" to support himself. He also revealed that Anna Nicole Smith paid in full for his lodging and for his expenses, including dinners and even shoes.

He said he made approximately "$60,000 - $70,000" in 2002. Stern said he made a measly $12,500 from the E! reality series "The Anna Nicole Show."

Stern just testified, however, that if Anna's estate wins its battle with Marshall family, he stands to collect 6% of the total.

I am sure Anna insisted that Howard have only herself for a client. She wanted someone 24/7 to work on her case and to be available during the times she had to go to court. Can you imagine how much she would have had to pay him by the hour if she had to pay him all the years he stayed by her side? Anna was only going to pay him his lawyer's fee if she won the case. It was not a sure thing if she was going to win or not. Big deal that she paid 950.00 a month for his rent and paid for his food and the couple of pair of shoes. He helped her get all that money she won by concentrating on her case and no one else's case. I am sure she liked having him around to be a yes man as well, she was the type that expected star treatment at all times. I could tell he loved her unconditionally from watching her reality show. People won't get off drugs until they are ready, she was her own boss and I can't imagine her listening to anyone about her drug addiction.

Hasn't HKS heard of a savings account? How does he expect to support a baby? Live on Mommy and Daddy's dime? This clown is his own worst enemy.

Howard-
Why is it that when you were with Anna, walking behind her , like a Geisha Boy you were so full of yourself?
Now, on the stand, your mouth is dry, your ears are constantly red, and you have a big vein throbbing on your neck? Are you stressed?
Is it getting too much for you?
Can't hide behind any skirts anymore, unless Ron puts one on!
It is very obvious, the pressure is getting to you- you had better take more drugs! The ones you are taking, aren't working!
We do not feel sorry for you- YOU ARE PATHETIC!!!!!

ANNA NICOLE LIVED SUCH AN UNDIGNIFIED LIFE, WHY SHOULD PEOPLE THINK THIS WOULD BE DIFFERENT IN COURT?
WITH THE LIFE SHE LEAD, LOVING HER SON AS MUCH AS THEY SAY SEEMS PRETTY HARD TO BELIEVE. I DON'T THINK SHE WAS ABLE TO TRULY LOVE ANYONE BUT HERSELF AND PERSONALLY I THINK SHE'D LOVE THIS DISGUSTING TREATMENT IN DEATH AS MUCH AS SHE LOVED IT IN LIFE.

anyone watch ET last night and notice even though HKS was on the stand and it was RIVETING on what a lousy even HOSTILE witness he was, ET made no mention of the testimony at all! NOTHING! It was ALL VERGIE and how SHE tripped up. I mean the MAJORITY of that show was on VERGIE. Man they are just salivating over the possibility of airing anna's funeral and they know HKS if he gets custody of her remains, will have the rights to let them do it. So he must have said, it you paint me in any neg light, all bets are off.

I will never watch ET again becasue of this. It is like Howard Stern is George W. Bush, Access Hollywood (who shows EVERYTHING) is CNN and ET is FOX NEWS! and I refuse to watch Fox becuase they are so UNFAIR AND UNBALANCED.

I call for a Boycott on ET and INSIDER!!!

What has Anna Nicole ever done that is so great she deserves this much media attention. Howard Stern was Anna's Manwhore! 6% of some 400 million if Anna won her lawsuit would make anyone consider being a little Mangina!

The whole group of them are just greedy and nasty!

As a woman, I'm insulted at how many people seem to think Anna wasn't capable of being responsible for her own decisions. SHE was responsible for the number of sexual partners she had and for getting pregnant while being addicted to prescription drugs. SHE made the decision to flee the country with Howard and to have her baby out the the jurisdiction of the US court and as FYI, in most cases, you must attest to the information that you put on a birth certificate under penalty of perjury. For months before she died, ANNA made the decision to NOT submit Dannielynn to a DNA test per the ORDER of the California Family Court.

No evidence has been offered nor has it been alleged that Howard kidnapped Anna, held her against her will, gave her drugs she didn't want , if not demand (if he didn't someone else would), or that he forced her to support him. In terms of ethics, there are MANY who offer that he never really crossed that line in terms of having an intimate relationship with Anna that this was simply a lie to support the subsequent paternity lie that was told. If that's the case, then he's really only guilty of the basic human weaknesses of being an enabler and dare I say, of being a lawyer.

I'm not defending some of the things Howard did, but Anna should not be so lucky as to have her bad choices blamed on him. Really are more people being driven to drugs by the Hollywood lifestyle or laywers?

ANNA, a grown woman made the decision to keep Howard in her life and support him. The decision he made to represent her and sacrifice years of his career is a VERY big deal. After all, Howard has now been able to take a case before the US SUPREME COURT, the highest court in the land, and for any ambitious attorney, that is a VERY BIG DEAL. When this is over, he will be able to get a GREAT job as an attorney because he will be a rainmaker (his name will bring in business) and because his experience dealing with the Vickie Lynn Hogan vs. J. Howard Marshall Estate will have afforded him legal experience that most attorneys NEVER get, arguing before the Supreme Court.

Let's face it most of us don't like lawyers' character much anyway, one LA radio personality who is also an attorney said, "attorneys are allowed to screw their clients every way except sexually" so HKS is just another lawyer many won't like, but the truth is, in order for him to get that case all the way to the Supreme Court, he WAS working his tail off as an attorney, and the value of that work, I assure you, was more than the expenses that Anna was paying for his basic living expenses.

As for borrowing from his parents, they too are grown folks who could have said, we gave you a good education, you're own your own now. HKS enabled Anna, and his parents enabled him, or maybe they supported his desire to take a huge career risk.

Stern should be dis-barred. He is a disgrace to his profession. He knows
damn well he is not the daddy.
