Stern to Birkhead: I Own You, and Your Little Girl Too

3/3/2007 5:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As TMZ previously reported, it looks like Larry Birkhead is on his way to being crowned Dannielynn's daddy – but only if the price is right for Howard K. Stern.



As Stern continues to lose control of the whole Anna Nicole circus, he's pressuring the would-be daddy into making him look like the good guy.

According to FOX News, Stern has tried to force Birkhead into signing a contract saying they will appear side by side in upcoming exclusive interviews on "Entertainment Tonight," but Larry won't ink the deal. "Howard wanted Larry to sign so that it looked like ... it wasn't just Howard benefiting from these deals," a source says.

But TMZ has learned that is not the way it went down. Sources say Stern and Birkhead discussed a deal that would have benefited a trust for Dannielynn, but ultimately Birkhead wouldn't sign. Did Stern then cut his own deal? You be the judge.



Brooke and Brit -- New BFFs?


Brooke Shields, who suffered from post-partum depression, is reaching out to rehab-ridden Britney Spears, reports Access Hollywood. As TMZ first reported, doctors at the rehab center think that Brit may be suffering from post-partum, and Brooke agrees. "It really needs to be reckoned with," Shields says. "It's very common, and she'll get through it."

TMZ reported that Brit was spotted in rehab reading Brooke's book, "Down Came the Rain," about the subject. "I hope it's helping her," Shields says. "If it's not, and she wants to talk to someone, I'm available."


Is Angelina Pulling a Madonna?


Angelina Jolie is quickly moving forward on adopting a Vietnamese boy, and being a celebrity sure has its privileges. It seems that Vietnamese officials are turning a blind eye to the fact that Jolie has filed papers as a single parent, even though she lives with Brad Pitt and shares custody of her other children with him. "This is a clear contradiction of Vietnamese law, and such situations would not be allowed for other couples," international adoption advocate Tatiana Beams tells Page Six. "Most co-habitating couples who try to adopt as a single parent are either turned away from agencies or face difficulties."


Party Favors: Spielberg Hands Over Stolen Art ... Elizabeth Hurley Gets Hitched ... NYC Says No to the N-Word


A missing Norman Rockwell painting was found hanging in Steven Spielberg's office. The painting was stolen more than three decades ago, and purchased in 1989 by Spielberg, who didn't know it was stolen. ... Elizabeth Hurley and businessman Arun Nayar were set to wed today in western England. Guests will include Elton John, Kate Moss and Hugh Grant. ... New York City has symbolically banned the N-word. The City Council voted on the new campaign, which carries no legal penalties but hopes to curb the use of the word.

OMG! I just remembered this!

After the Paternity hearing in the Bahamas the other day, Debra Opri was interviewed by Court TV outside of the court room about the hearing and what is going on the the Paternity.

She said that it will happen very soon and that "Howard will submit to
DNA testing WITHOUT CONDITIONS and Larry will be bring Dannilynn back
to CA within 2 months tops".What struck me was that she said WITHOUT
CONDITIONS. Obviiously HKS WAS trying to settle this and had
conditions with giving up the DNA and/or custody of the baby.Why else
would she add that. They do not have to agree to any conditions.
this judge was said to tell the attys that if they did not agree on
someone to test for DNA, HE woulld fine one. The judge will make
this happen. and with all the publicity about the case, no judge is
going to do the wrong thing. Larry has got it in the bag. Debra
Opri will not let him be intimidated by this guy. she is way too
smart and I think Larry is as well.

The Original D..    

Sound familiar?

HINGHAM -- In the days before her death, 4-year-old Rebecca Riley wandered the family home disoriented and sick. Her parents simply reacted as they often did: by feeding her powerful prescription drugs, police said in court papers released yesterday.

But instead of helping her, the pills slowly destroyed her internal organs and filled her lungs with fluid, according to the police affidavit. Police found Rebecca lying dead on the floor of the Riley home in Hull on Dec. 13.

HKS INNOCENT< DR. E NOT    

Howard Stern does not own anyone. My advice to Larry, is to stop wasting your time with Howard, and take your battle to the courtroom, not entertainment tonight. You are smart to not sign any deals with Howard, remember, he may be a lot of things, but he is an attorney and that is what you must never lose sight of for your own safety. I truly hope (Larry) is the biological father of the baby, and gets custody. I also hope Larry will foster the best relationship with Virgie Arthur he possibly can, she is the undisputed Grandmother who deserves to have a relationship with DannieLynn. She has already been robbed of enough
in her life. Besides, courts love it when you foster great relationships with the other relatives, and so will DannieLynn. She needs all the love she can get. Do not sign anything with Howard, let the system work for you and have faith. To Howard, let it go, and treasure the moments you shared with Anna, and maybe if you play your cards right, larry will allow you to see DannieLynn since you obviously have raised this child from the day she was born and have an interest and love for her. This is all a tragedy for the baby.

I've said it before and I'l say it again more forcefully.
HKS is a slimeball scum parasite loser who leeched off a celebrity who had her problems.

He makes me want to vomit every time I see his disgusting picture.
He's a murderer, kidnapper and a total loser who needs to go back to the oblivion he was in before he slimed his way into Annas life.
There is nothing good about this guy and he needs to be in jail.

Okay, TMZ, what gives? Is my computer not working? Or else, why are you linking the feedback to several stories together? Is it so you ensure every story and related comments gets read? It's very inconvenient. Please re-consider, if that's the case. Thanks

Great Post! I too found Howard's eulogy (if you want to call it that) about "TRUTH" disgusting.
Howard and Anna BOTH have lied through their teeth from the very beginning of this sad and tragic story. It was THEIR lies and Enterainment Tonight creative editing, and never ending supply of money that created this soap opera.
You forgot to mention another one of Howards lies....... Horizons!
Anyone eles remember Howard proclaiming he would prove in a court of law, Anna bought and paid for Horizons herself, then Anna changed the script a little and said the house was a gift from Ben Thompson......and Howard backed that up by saying he'd prove that as well.
The last 6 months of Anna's life was based on nothing but lies!
ANYONE eles happen to catch ET's episode a few days ago when Anna's freind "Freddy" came on to say he thought Anna died of Lupos (sp?)?
ET promptly went into their filing cabnet and produced footage of Anna's last interview shot 2 weeks before her death and showed Anna on all fours trying to get up the patio stairs, and getting help from others getting back into the house?
If ET was such good friends of Anna's why did'nt they get her help? It is clear that pal Mark Stienes KNEW exactly what was going on and played into the lies.......
It all boils down to..... IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS.
and STILL IS.

Can anyone here tell me how "Howard is clearly losing control over the circus" (per Fox)? He seems to have gotten everything he has wanted so far? Sorry if someone has already answered this - but I don't understand how Fox can say this? Thanks!

Please you guys do not watch ET anymore espeically this Howard Stern coverage. It is so ridiculous. Their "contract" was obviously that ET was required (at HKS's request) to make sure HKS is put in a good light (b/c he knows how the public feels about him) and he would provide access to everything they wanted. But he had to REQUIRE that nothing deragatory would be portrayed there.

When HKS is no longer useful to them, they may start interviewing people who have something to really offer this story. but while it is still the Howard K Stern show, donot support this kind of journalism!

Rhymes with "Coward", don't it. Please Larry, stand your ground- it's Stern who owes YOU big time.

Can't get over Stern's transparent ridiculously attempt to emulate Princess Diana's brother in his self-serving "eulogy" yesterday- it was despicable, when it comes to right to indignation, he comes up empty. Just because you say the words lawyer boy- don't make 'em credible! You can fool some of the people, etc.

As for Anna's crowd of friends, it's sad-- seems like many of these people turned a blind eye to this poor girls troubles, shallow values and her pattern deceptions (what a web she seems to have spun for so long, but still I'm sad for her). Sad that Anna apparently was driven by such empty goals, and that world seems bizaree and ready-made poster for Hangers-on of America.

This saga, though sad, is fascinating. It offers examination of so much in current society, personality and motive studies.It is a soap opera and riveting movie being played out in real time. Larry Birkhead is obviously a good, well-intentioned person that got caught up in a relationship fraught with unhealthiness. It most of all illustrates the destructive power of drug abuse- ahem- prescription or otherwise.
