A Nightmare on Opri Street

6/13/2007 12:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead used an appearance on "Larry King Live" last night to compare his former lawyer, Debra Opri, to the demonic character from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies. Flattery will get you ... to court.
"It's kind of like one of those Freddy Krueger movies when you try to get rid of somebody and they keep coming back," Birkhead said of Opri when asked about her lawsuit against him. "Carrie" might have been more fitting.

Before the interview, photogs spotted Birkhead making his way into the studio with daughter Dannielynn, curled up in a blanket in his arms.

All together now, "Awwwwww."

Larry was so uncomfortable when asked about the bill. Stuttering Larry, read the transcript. No one has ever produced any evidence that Opri said she would work pro bono. But I have seen evidence that Howard K. Stern's ugly sister said Howard was going to help Larry get Opri disbarred. Look it up! Howard is the one who told Larry not to pay her like he does.

Larry is in bed with a killer. He is using Howard's attorney's against Opri, Trope. Look it up! Larry won't testify against Howard at the inquest. He will forget everything he said about Howard in Florida. You just watch! I think this was all about money now and deals with Howard. Keep the kid off TV, you are an embarrassment.

Don't be offensive and use bad language

I do think Larry is gay - have you ever noticed a woman hanging around and there are plenty who would have even helped him with the bills and it would have looked better for the custody deal

If Byron was straight he'd have been roaring like a lion and being paid for it

Larry is too thin - if I was introduced to him I would say he is HIV positive he has the look

He's made enough off of the kid to take her home to Ky and live a quiet life and let her grow up normal and not work anymore-- the media needs to stop this crazy bidding war for celebs - some one wrote that Paris Hilton stands to make $10mil off of her time in jail - the press should stop this and stop paying people to create news.

I know he's got that blanket drawn a little too tightly over the child's face, but he IS obviously trying to protect her from the cameras. Would you want cameras flashing that closely in YOUR baby's face? I think not. Larry is a good father and Dannilynn is lucky to have him for her daddy. If only all fathers would fight as hard for their children as Larry Birkhead had to in order to get his little girl. Let's be realistic here--most men would have thought to themselves, "Forget it. She and Howard can keep the kid, maybe it's his anyway. Beats having to pay child support."

It also isn't his fault that people are so interested in him and his daughter. She IS the daughter of a celebrity. But hopefully interest in her will eventually taper off as the years go by. Why would interest in her continue for much longer now that Anna Nicole is dead? I don't think we'll hear much more (if anything) about her once this business with Opri is over and done with.

Grow up Larry. Stay out of the SPOTLIGHT and help you daughter grown and learn to live the best life possible.

Gracie, ease up a little. She's made 2 brief appearances, this week, when
he was invited to appear on these shows. I wouldn't say that's much of a SPOTLIGHT. How many photos have you seen of her, since he got back to CA. We didn't see any, after his arrival in KY.

She's a sweet, happy child. He's doing a great job.

Tila is nasty!!!    

im so tired of reading these posts where one will say HKS is the bad one, then one will say ANS was the bad one, then one will say Larry is, then its the Lawyer etc... ALL OF THEM ARE GUILTY in some way or fashion. None of them are saints. ANS did the drugs, took the baby and ran etc... HKS helped ANS with whole drug situation and running off with the baby with ANS, Larry watched ANS take drugs and didnt do anything or tell anyone. Now hes pretty much exploiting that poor baby. The lawyer, she just looks like a bitch. So people need to realize the truth. Everyone in this whole saga is GUILTY!!!

Looks to me like maybe Larry is trying to preserve his exclusive contract with Abcess Hollywood for pic rights ? Poor baby is just another Sugarpie... Larry,get some rest and use some common sense-settle down and make an honest living , at something useful to society-like heating and air conditioning...

48. Gotta keep her covered (smothered) unless he is getting $$$ for her photo ops.

How can he think HK$ has her best interest at heart?
He has a short memory...remember the drugged up CLOWN VIDEO saying this is worth $$$$?

Doesn't that lead you to believe that Larry knows Anna WASN'T drugged up, and was in fact "acting" like the character in her last movie? I think he's seen the unedited tape and knows Anna wasn't on drugs.

You would think that people would take Larry's acceptance of Howard as a sign that Howard is a good guy. Larry has every reason to cut Howard out. He knows why he isn't cutting Howard out. It has nothing to do with the money. DL will get the money she's meant to get, with or without Howard. Larry knows Howard has DL's best interests at heart. LARRY KNOWS HOW HOWARD FELT ABOUT ANNA. LARRY KNOWS HOW ANNA FELT ABOUT HOWARD. And still people think Howard is the bad guy, even when LARRY, the guy who has reason to loathe Howard the most, DOESN'T THINK HOWARD IS THE BAD GUY! When will you people who are so anti-Howard, WAKE THE HELL UP?

Sure he's looking like the world's greatest Dad, and thanks to Debra Opri.

Read the court documents filed in this case. Larry's apartment was such a sty and he didn't want to clean it. Debra Opri hired and paid for a professional cleaning crew to clean that pig pen, for it would never pass social services inspection deeming it fit for a child.

And, in this segment of the court docs a strange male domestic residence is revealed, Byron. When Opri questioned Larry about this guy living at his apartment for over a year, Larry said it wasn't open for discussion. Looks like Larry has a lot of explaining to do about the lies he's told.

He's charmed the pants off of America, and THEY'VE BOUGHT THE ACT UNTIL NOW

GO DEBRA SUE THE PANTS OFF THIS DECEPTIVE CHEAT AND EXPOSE LARRY FOR WHO HE TRULY IS!!!!

I know that Opri had a reputation for being a loud-mouthed, irritating person when Larry hired her. Guess I just wonder why he did? Had he never seen her and her vile mouth on TV speaking for The Jackson's?
I think it thought everyone would run like hell when they knew OPRI was his attorney.
Well they didn't. Most people would ask for a statement regarding the attorney fees every once in awhile. I think he is a person with little or no knowledge of the legal system. He let lawyers do the work for him in the past, take their cut, give him the rest and never questioned it. I'm sure his suit against fellow Kentuckian, Ashley Judd was not millions or even hundred of thousands of dollars. I'm sure the others were minimal amouts too.

Settle with Opri and stay out of the court system..You should not have to keep suing people now that you have that BEAUTIFUL Millions of Dollars Baby.

If you are so concerned about publicity stay out of the spotlight. You made the statement people yell at you like you're a ROCK STAR..DUH? If you don't put yourself and especially Dannielynn out in the pubic this wouldn't happen.

You even said she is your date...you take her to the grocery store, toy store, clothing store, etc...all the sickos of the world listened closely I'm sure. That was your answer when Larry K. asked if you're dating...hummm
