Jon's a grwon man...he did this to himself!    

I never thought that Vergie's attorney's were good for her case. Let a Bahamian attorney deal with Bahamian law, and stop all the "shooting from the hip" of her previous attorney, O'Quinn. Besides, this may be all a moot point after Tuesday.

John Water's was just speaking of his new program and made some good points. Essentually, you must love deeply to hate deeply. Also, hate is often a result of power and control.

Anna loved her mom but Vergie was trying to control her using her parental bond. Perfect mix for the hurt Anna we saw being exploited on ET. She said these things because she was in grief and very hurt.

They were there as observers. The American lawyers were allowed at the last hearing in the Bahamas as observers, but Howard's Bahamian lawyers asked that the American attorneys leave and the judge said Okay. Opri probably would have been there before the fallout with Larry, and she would have had to leave too.

Howard didn't bother to show up today. Score one for Howard's side.

Every girl disses her mother now and then. But, the absolute distain Anna Nicole had for her her mother which she held into adulthood surely must have had some basis in fact. Now Virgie is showing her true skanky colors to the rest of the world. Let's hope Anna's sweet baby isn't ever tainted by the money grubbing grandma.

She is making money..Splash is her source..they drove her to the morgue to view anna nicole....she committed perjury in the florida court by lying and saying she had received no money...then she had to admit she had lied..so money has already been given to her.....how do you think she gets back and forth to the BAHAMAS......

Too much!    

Pary that Vergie does not get that little girl. Let's see - the daughter she raised dropeed out of the 8th grade, was a stripper as a teenager, claims physical abuse and ended up an addict. Hell NO to Vergie

Virgie's been in the deep pockets of Splash News for the past few months
since Daniel died. They PAID for that photo Op of her at his grave.
How Pathetic! Where was she in the years BEFORE Daniel died? Great
Grandparenting skills on top of her illustrious career of Parenting!

What, could it be Howie is scared of Virgie's lawyers. No problem they will get their day with him in the USA. Virgie isn't done with him, not by a long shot. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and especially if that woman is mother whose child and grandchild have died for no good reason. The woman was a cop, smells scum and knows scum when she sees it and Howard knows it, and he is the scum she has her sights on.

you are a f'in idiot kbh. Daniel could've moved out anytime he wanted, if Virgie was such a great parent, he coudl've moved back in with her. he chose to be on camera at times, and Anna would go out of her way to give him what he wanted. you'd know this if you watched her show.

i'm not surprised Anna was as f'd up as she was. there is nooooo way a child with a 'normal' upbringing ends up that way. She can blame Anna for taking drugs all she wants, truth is she had alot to do with Anna being a druggy and slut.

Too much!    

At least HKS worked hard to bring money in for Anna, if she chose to support him rather than pay him his percentage of the deals or pay him hourly for the Marshall case, which she could have not afforded, that's their deal. Vergie didn't help Anna make a dime, she kicked her girl out and allegedly abused her. She should NOT get a dime

Sue the Crap out of Her!!!!!!!    

#36 I totally agree with you, this MONSTER MOMMY DEAREST should have her lying, insincere ass kicked all the way back to Montgomery Texas. Her other kids are not going to show up to support her because they have no respect for her either. Of the 5 children vergi gave birth too, ANS ran away from home at an early age,was raped by ONE of vergi's FIVE husbands, and one of Vergi's sons (ANS' s half brother) that kind of explained why ANS lead the kind of life she did. Now as for the other 4 kids, one of the sons was or is in prison, one daughter was homeless with 2 kids for awhile (where was mommy dearest then to help that daughter and GRANDCHILDREN?????) Whoops, forgot, that daughter and grandchildren were homeless and had no MONEY.
NOTE TO VERGI: I would not let you touch my neighbors dog, and I don't even like the dog.

My two cents    

Thank god!! Go home Virgie and let Larry take care of his own business. Your 15 minutes of fame is over. Back to Texas, y'all!!

to all the virgie bashers

lay off! the woman only said that anna nicole was hanging out with really bad people and that she was on drugs. i think it is pretty well established at this point that she was right. she believed stern killed daniel and tried to warn her daughter that she would be next. well guess what? now anna nicole is dead. this woman is not sophisticated nor is she educated. i am sure she just like all the other players in this has made money from the media. she is going to need it. the fight for dannielynn is going to be expensive no doubt. as far as the accusations anna nicole made against her mom, well, they are unfounded at best and came from a woman who sadly was under the influence of many strong medications and influence of people with their own agenda. everyone keeps carrying on about virgie being trailer trash and it is unnerving. virgie arthur lives within her means. She has a 28 year history as a law enforcement officer. she is just a working person and that does not make her trash. I am quite sure it is a much better example for a child to live in a modest home or even a trailer for which one has worked to pay the rent or mortgage instead of attempting to swindle someone out of a multi-million dollar estate. also, i am so pleased that her action is causing bahamian social services to investigate all the parties including stern and birkhead. birkhead according to his own story stood by and let stern inject anna with drugs while pregnant and did not notify proper medical personal. his judgement is off. stern stood by and let a woman with temp of 105 stay in a hotel instead of calling 911. his judgement is way off. neither, if telling any shred of the truth should be trusted to care for that child properly. besides, who is to say that either of them are the dad? if it is not birkhead and it is not stern, virgie IS the next of kin. don't need any dna for that!
