Larry: I Was Just There to Snap

9/6/2007 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rita Cosby may be trying to make hay out of Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern attending a gay pride parade together, but Birkhead says that he was there for one reason -- to get paid.

Us talked to Larry, and he says that he was at the 2005 L.A. Gay Pride parade with Stern and Anna Nicole Smith, who was Grand Marshal, to shoot: "I was a photographer," explains Birkhead. "My camera is around my neck in every picture."

Birkhead has been refuting the allegations in Cosby's salacious book, "Blonde Ambition," calling it, "outrageous lies."

Sherri Shepherd-ed onto "View"?

It looks like one of daytime TV's worst-kept secrets won't be a secret anymore: Sherri Shepherd will be joining "The View" as the daytime show's new co-host, reports the L.A. Times.

After just two days into the Whoopi Goldberg era, the paper says that Barbara Walters is going to welcome Sherri to the show, on which she's been a guest co-host numerous times. Babwa teased the announcement on yesterday's show, saying that someone else will be tapped this coming Monday to fill the seat vacated by Star Jones Reynolds in 2006.

A rep for the show had no comment on Shepherd, but confirmed that an announcement would come Monday.

I don't get the "scandal". The woman with whom he was having a relationship was the Grand Marshall, and Howard Stern was always with her. So why is it a big deal if they were all there?

The public's interest in this story is not whether anyone is 'gay', not birthday bashes etc. etc.

The public's interest in this story is Justice being served!

Where are the findings from:

CA Department of Justice - Drug Enforcement Branch?
CA Medical Board?

When will the Coroner's Inquest in Daniel Wayne Smith's death be held?

Larry you said Rita never contacted you about the book..
Well I can remind you Virgie tried to contact you just to see her grandbaby! With no return calls. What will it hurt larry? Any real southern babtist man that didn't have anything to hide would throw no stones at Virgie and let her see DL.
The lord says to forgive. Virgie loved you already in her heart and you do this to her?
Why won't you let her see her grandbaby?

Larry , why are you going to Rita, but not Kerrick Ross? I thought you said you would sue Kerrick, but you never did. Is that because he passed a lie detector test?

To #7 & #10-hmm

It's coming across as if you have an axe to grind here. Do you know Larry personally? Could you be Rita Cosby trying to divert the attention from your book to other things? Like whether he lets Virgie see the baby...or trying to make people think he's gay? Strange..
