Diaries of a Madwoman -- Stolen?

4/12/2007 6:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole SmithNew allegations of cheating and thievery in the Anna Nicole saga. Lin Wood, the high-powered bull-dog attorney of Howard K. Stern has sent a notice to Heritage Auctions, Inc. over two of Anna Nicole's diaries listed as available on the site. Wood claims that the diaries were stolen and that the company, and the auction sponsor, Clips4Sale.com, are not legally entitled to hawk the items.

"Make no mistake: these items were stolen from Ms. Smith by one or more thieves," claims Wood's letter. "Ms. Smith's Estate intends to vigorously pursue the return of the diaries, will take whatever means necessary to secure their return, and will hold to account those persons and entities that have profited through their reprehensible acts at the expense of the Estate."

TMZ spoke with Thomas Riccio, the man claiming to be the original owner of the diaries, who denies Wood's claims, saying that "the facts he mentions in the letter are FALSE -- these diaries are NOT stolen, (They were obtained BEFORE her death) -- he is just trying to steal more money in the name of Anna Nicole." The diaries are handwritten journals from 1992 and 1994, and both auctions start at a whopping $26,000.

Hi Greta, (OnTheRecord) May 29, 2007 Show

Seems like Big Moe's timeline and his story does not Jive.

Kris the Medical Doctor was there in the room, but instead they used Moe's Grandmother's Home Remedy method to help Anna. Moe said Kris the Doctor was there as a friend, so I guess she couldn't use her Medical Expertise and being a Medical Doctor she didn't feel it was her duty to see that Anna was Hospitalized with the 105 degree fever and leaves the day before Anna died.

Moe didn't charge Anna since Daniel died, so what did he live on and who paid his Hotel and Meals?

Tues February 6, Moe stated Anna was a lot better and ate and Watched movies, so she was getting better.

Two days later, February 8, what time did HKS wake up? Anna could have been dead around 9;00/am according to Dr. Perper and Moe stated he talked to Anna after he woke up around 9;30/10:00/am. He said she was moving around a little and then he started talking about her daily routine changing the subject. They planned to get the New Boat HKS was out buying and drive it back to the Bahamas and Moe is still doing all this Free of Charge?

He stated he put Anna to bed, wouldn't Anna already be in bed with a 105 degree fever?

He said his wife stayed with Anna while he did chores and then he called his wife to see how Anna was and he wife said she's sleeping. Then...5 minutes later Moe's wife calls back Frantic stating Anna's not breathing and she's trying to do CPR. So she must have just started the CPR a minute or two after she hung Up with Moe? His wife who is a Nurse tells Moe to call 911 from his cell phone when she is in the Hotel, strangest thing I ever heard. So Moe called HKS first, who would do that in a Life & Death Emergency?

Then he rushed back to the Hotel which at the minimum had to take 15 minutes and found his wife still giving CPR and then he PULLED THE COVERS AWAY AND SAW Anna's BEAUTIFUL LIPS, but his wife was giving CPR he said and was on Top of Anna, so were the Covers over Anna's face? Then Moe starts giving her CPR.

I may be wrong, but I could Swear I heard HKS woke up also around 9:00/am

Hey Lin- Your letter says "Ms. Smith's estate plans to vigorosuly pursue this" can't you come right out and say it ? "HKS plans to pursue this".

Is HKS upset because he didn't get a chance to sell them first?

Given the high profile nature of the ANS saga, I'm sure Heritage Auctions legal dept. or legal rep. made sure ever they had their basis covered before trying to sell these diaries.

Just Wondering    

If the will has not been probated, how is it an attorney has been hired on behalf of the estate, how does he even have rights to represent the estate... one can say all they want they are the named executor, but until that will is filed, it is merely a piece of paper.

I don't blame HKS. I would not want my Diaries out there for everyone to read either. I think that it is sameful for any one to be making money off of her. But according to Donna Hogans book , Annas family was making money off of her way before any boby eles was.
