Birkhead to Rita - You're Gonna Pay!

9/5/2007 9:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead is planning to sue Rita Cosby over her salacious new book -- and he says it's going to be "one of the most expensive lawsuit settlements in book publishing history."

Birkhead told the AP that he intends to bring the hammer down on Cosby, her sources, and Grand Central Publishing over what he calls a work of "pure fiction," as he told TMZ's Harvey Levin last night on CNN's "Larry King Live." "It's totally false and defamatory," said Birkhead. "She never once tried to contact me or Howard to see if any of these things were true."

Wowl, I can't believe how so many people have turned on Larry Birkhead. This is almost like Britney before her divorce. People anyone can accuse you of something, but they better have the evidence to prove it or else there ass will get sued. You knew bad things were going to happen to Kate and Owen's relationship when it was built on adultery and lies. Of course the family is scare they know the truth. Amy Winehouse get some help now and it doesn't matter who it is!!!

You know who makes out big every time Larry Jerkhead files a lawsuit? HIS LAWYERS! They are gong to end up with all his money and Larry will be broke. I can just see the lawyers egging him on... "Larry, you need to sue him and her and everyone else." And Jerkhead is dumb enough to go along. Mark my words, he will be broke in a year - if not sooner.

Rita cosby is nothing but an opportunistic journalist out to make money. I used to like this woman but lost total respect for her during Anna Nicoles funeral. i was mortified when after attending annas funeral, she was talking to reporters, and gloating over how the no class Howard Stern lashed out at Virgie Arthur and Annas family AT THE FUNERAl as he gave a eulogy for anna. My God, no one with decency criticizes people at a funeral, when that family and others are mourning the loss of their loved one. As Cosby spoke to the cameras about this she smiled and acted like she thought it ws just grand of Stern to do what he did. whether Virgie arthur invited Cosby to the funeral or not , Cosby is a backstabber of the worst kind. And I do not care for Stern at all, but if he and Larry Birkhead DID have sex it is not Cosbys or anyone elses damned business. Last night on Larry King , Larry Birheads lawyer made a remark which were the exact words I had said to someone earlier, Cosbys book belongs where OJ Simpsons book belongs. In my opinion that is In the toilet, torn apart page by page.

That's right. Jerkhead was under oath when he said he saw Howard give Anna drugs from a duffle bag, and last night, kept his mouth shut when Rale said Howard never gave Anna drugs. He changes his testimony, the creep can be charged with PERJURY.

I just got done watching the clip of Cosby on Bill O'Reilly last night. It was completely hysterical. Bill had a sarcastic attitude, just what Rita deserved. He started off by saying basically that the only reason that he had her on was because they were friends and former co-workers. He basically acted like he could care less about the allegations and they weren't really a big deal.

Rita was trying so hard to act like this was all so explosive and some big deal. Her sources sound really reputable too.....ROFLMAO!

Even at Fox News, Rita got put in her place......in the gutter.

Rita Cosby is a pathetic money hungry tabloid journalist. She writes a book about an alleged video tape, of which she has never seen. During the whole Anna debacle, Rita was on TV acting so concerned for the baby and now on that same baby's first birthday she releases this kind of book. She should be ashamed of herself. I don't care if the allegations are true or not, its none of her business. And seriously, how many Americans really care about the "truth" surrounding Anna's death? Leave it to the authorities and get a life.

Poor little Danielynn had a dumb mommy and now is stuck with a dumb daddy. He should not respond to the book. He should SHUT his MOUTH. His body language on the Larry King Show makes it appear that Larry is not telling the truth.
He lost a lot of public respect when he asked to have the one year old birthday party at the mansion in KY. He is pimping out her photos.
If Rita received most of her information from Anna's relative that had not seen her since 2001, then she really has NO facts about Larry. He did not come into Anna's life until later.
Is the bleach affecting all of these people's brains?

I care about the truth surrounding Anna's death and especially Daniel's death. I care about perjury, the numerous lies these creeps say on national TV. I care about what the nannies said and about $tern flushing evidence (DRUGS) down the toilet to "take care of a problem" from Daniel's dead body. I care about the Inquest being quashed in a VERY suspicious death. I also care about bribing a government official with a Rolex watch as Stern did, which, if he did in this country would be a FELONY from a lawyer like Stern.
