Birkhead Blasts Cosby: Calls Book "Pure Fiction"

9/4/2007 10:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comLarry Birkhead came out swinging tonight on CNN's "Larry King Live," telling TMZ's Harvey Levin that "Blonde Ambition," the new book by Rita Cosby, is "pure fiction" and should be sitting next to "Harry Potter."

Larry also responded to what Rita told FOX's Bill O'Reilly tonight, as to why the two former enemies now get along. Larry says he simply decided to put the best interests of his daughter first, so he buried the hatchet with Howard. Refuting what Rita claims in her book, Birkhead states flat out -- there were no secret deals between him and Stern.

Larry's bottom line -- he'll see Rita (and everyone else) in court.

Larry's attorney is already setting the stage. If you confirm and acknowledge that you collaborated with Rita regarding the information in her book, you to will be sued. I think they really want to go after the heavy hitters with the money and they want to intimidate the sources so they do not support Rita. Think about it, what exactly can you sue Jackie Hattan for? A 1979 Gremlin and a $10 bank account?

Larry says that his top priority is to shield his daughter? Well than why do you keep thrusting her into the spotlight with all these photo shoots and her 1st birthday to be aired by ET? Why? Is that shielding your daughter from all this hoopla? You seem to continue to throw her right into the mix and you are keeping the saga alive by doing so.

I thought it to be very interesting, especially the interview with Rita Cosby who is writing a book based on a sexual video THAT SHE NEVER SAW. Harvey did a good job tonight & Birkhead held his own.

I think Debra Opri, Rita Cosby, and Jackie What's her name, are three of a kind.
Nasty, unprofessional, starved for attention, and cheap, in every sense of the word.
I think these women got rejected by Larry Birkhead, and they are pissed off.
Rita Cosby, shame on you!

#1 that is a good one, maybe you can sue Jackie for future welfare payments, and her 79 Gremlin with 8 track tape player. Hell why not go after that 10 bucks too!

God, he's such a liar. If he were TRULY "putting his daughter's best interests at heart", he would forever be keeping her safe from Stern's tentacles. He's in cahoots with little Howie, at the detriment of his daughter.

Is the whole segment available online yet? As luck would have it cable went down in my neighborhood shortly before it began and has not been restored yet. I'd love to be able to post informed comments regarding this whole new chapter in the ANS tragedy. Thanks!!

Rita Cosby and Debra Opri?? Why am I NOT surprised by their alliance??!!! I hope Larry Birkhead goes after them for everything they have! They need to leave the guy alone and let him raise HIS daughter. And whatever happened to attorney/client confidentiality? It seems as though Opri is violating that by even talking about this whole thing.
