Judge to Rita Cosby -- Something Fishy

11/6/2007 9:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A judge has ruled that there's a lot of evidence that former MSNBC anchor turned author Rita Cosby crossed the line in writing her tell-all book about Anna Nicole Smith.

Howard K. Stern is suing Cosby, claiming she defamed him in the book by saying there are witnesses -- two nannies -- who say Anna Nicole had a video of Stern and Larry Birkhead having sex.

A federal judge in the Southern District of New York issued an order today in the wake of Stern's allegation that Cosby "sought to tamper with two witnesses by offering to pay them thousands of dollars for their testimony." The judge allowed Stern to probe the allegation, concluding he has "presented substantial -- indeed troubling -- evidence that Cosby has sought to improperly influence witnesses..."

In a statement to TMZ, Rita Cosby said <"I am pleased that the Court will get to the bottom of these unfounded allegations. I trust that when all the facts come out that a very different picture will be shown."

Does Rita have to worry about the California AG's Office, US Customs....remember the &10,000 increments (that we know of) wired to theBahama's from Dr. Death's husband, the US postal Service...shipping illegal drugs across state lines, the DEA, the Florida AG's Office, the FBI ? The answer is "NO."

The latest legal maneuvering is just another desperate measure from a very desperate man who sees his HOUSE OF CARDS falling towards an abyss. I think Woody knows this and is trying to get paid before the big fall.

Rita was entrapped when she went to speak with the Devil, I thought she was smarter than that but I guess she was desperate too. IMO if Rita settles her career is over.

DON'T SETTLE RITA TAKE IT TO TRIAL. LET IT ALL COME OUT.

LEAVE THE LIGHT ON SAN QUENTIN...IT'S JUST AMATTER OF TIME.......TICK TOCK....

HAPPY THANKSGIVING GRANDMA & DANIELYNN.......    

to #261 poster - ABOUT $10,0000 INCREMENTS WIRED BY DR. DEATH'S HUSBAND and money Stern's parents are given on regular basis to Stern. (that is a cover up)

Perhaps the oversea accounts were set up on other people's name's & fake corporations for Stern by RONRALE (his speciallty its oversea accounts)

There is no way UNEMPLOYED Stern could afford paying all his pack of bulldog lawyers when doesn't even holds a job. NO WAY! What do you think about this???

Poor Anna, this creep kept her drugged most of the time and any money and contracts were manipulated and financially drainned by evil Stern. NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT NOW.

THE PICTURE IS VERY CLEAR BY NOW, NOBODY WORKS FOR FREE AND THE MONEY IS COMING FROM SOMEWHERE STERN HIDE MONEY STOLE FROM ANNA DURING THE 12 YRS HE 'LEECHED' ON HER.

YES RITA DRAG THIS CREEP TO TRIAL, perhaps this will finally break this camel's back and land Stern finally in SAN QUENTIN for murdering 2 inocent, vulnerable human beings, Anna and Daniel.

Yawn

but Stern doesn't have to stalk LB and baby, he and LB are good buds

You know for everyones theory on the death/murders to work, Stern and LB would have had to have some prearranged agreement --cause Stern had to know without ANS there would be a DNA test and not being a blood relative he had no chance of keeping her, the only person who did have that chance was Vergie, so Larry and Stern had to have been talking all along otherwise why kill or let die the source of all of this ANS -- unless you have another cash cow in the wings -- sure did --baby.

IMO, Liz Thompson (their attorney) and Lincoln Baines (their manager - lol) got the big money. The nannies probably got the breadcrumbs.

I was wondering (off-topic here, sorta, but) Question to you legal people:

HKS lawsuit - his reputation: I've seen videos of him with Anna and Dr. Kapoor in very steamy scenes and also videos of him pretend-humping ANS in LV - both viewable at sites on the net.

Given these two videos he agreed to (and if any others), wouldn't it be hard to say his reputation was damaged?

I'm not trying to start a war, but I have seen many videos of the Anna Nicole show and others where HKS portrays himself as a (what do I call it?) sex star?

Not wanting to start a war, question re: Stern's ability to sue for "reputation".

I've viewed tapes of him pseudo-humping Anna in a "group grope" and ones of him in a similar video of him and Anna and Dr. Kappoor - perhaps there are others, as well on the net - he seemed to be enjoying himself.

So I don't understand how he feels he has a reputation to protect or how he could define it, given these videos.

Just thinking out loud:

It has seemed to me that (irregardless of the people who attached their wagon to ANS prior to her death), after her death, many more people have attached their wagon - and with most of these people, before and after, and after, even more -- they seem to be people without a life, or without much money in the bank, or without a real job, or looking for 15 minutes of fame.

To me, it's sorta like a swirling eddy drawing the weirdos and such into the mire.

Seems alot of people with no income or no purpose in life or seeking 15 minutes of fame have become legally involved with the ANS cases since her death.

Just wondering how these cases could have gotten so convaluted to end up distracting from the real issues.!
