HKS's Bahamian lawyer made the motion to have ONLY Bahamiam attorneys in the courtroom. It has nothing to do with whose lawyers they were. Would have been the same if LB had an American lawyer there. Period. From PJSun

Virgie has been married five times. Does that spell stability for you? I think not.

Give it up Virgie, You had your chance to be someone's mom and you failed. I wouldn't let you near that child with a 10 foot pole...I hope Bahamas investigators look deep in her past relationships and dig it all up...

Guess they didn't want to be intimidated by the great Texas Irish lawyer. Go Vergie! You are the next of kin to Dannielynn, and a caring mother and grandmother. You did your best with Anna. You tried to steer her away from the wrong crowd at an early age, as well as in her latter years,as soon as right before she died. Anna excluded anyone in her life who interfered negatively with her drugs, including her own mother. Keep fighting, Virgie. As you warned Anna about people she hung around with, Dannielynn may now be next.

To all of you who are bashing Virgie....you don't know what your talking about so why are you judging. She didn't approve of her daughters drug habits and what junkie likes to hear their doing bad things from mommy. What we do know is Howard Stern was with Anna while she was on drugs, did he give them to her who knows....but if he such a good person why did he allow a pnegnant woman take drugs. As far as I'm concerned he is truly the Wanna Be Daddy Dearest.

THERE is NO money coming from the Marshall clan! The money that's at stake here belongs to the Estate of Anna Nicole Smith for the rights to all future licensing of her image, voice, and likeness. No wonder people want to get their filthy hands on that baby.
Virgie is no exception. She has the ax to grind and would be laughing her way to the bank if she got custody. Thankfully the Bahamian court system will not rule in her favor. Their law statutes are very different from ours. It doesn't take a genious to figure out that that is the reason Dannielynn was born there!
Go back to Texas where you belong Virgie and just plain go away. Oh that's right I forgot about the contract$ you've signed with Splash News...When are those photos coming out again? PHONEY!

This could have happened to any US attornies in the Bahama today. It was a closed door
hearing & all parties are under a gag order. A Bahmian attorney is not allowed to practice law in the US. Since our courts are open to the public, they can observe but can't participate.

Ellen,
Krista Barth has nothing to do with the paternity case. She has nothing to do with anything. She just likes to primp for the cameras. She's a Florida lawyer, she was needed for the body hearing, and now she's done. Unless of course, they bring charges against Howard for anything in the investigation of Anna's death. She's just a hanger on now.
