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."

#14...i know you posted a long time ago but i agree. Someone gave Daniel all those drugs and Anna was in the hospital having a baby. That narrows it down rather well. Besides, i doubt Anna would ever approve of her son taking methadone or anything else she herself was taking. It's a blessing the baby wasn't born addicted. HKS has much to answer to in regard to Daniel. Correct me if i'm wrong, but the way i read it HKS was in the room when Daniel died and that Danny made a comment about not feeling well. They were in a hospital! Where was the request for help, he should have seen something was very wrong with Danny and seeked help. HKS isn't as innocent as he would like people to think. He's NOT a victim, he was a partcipant in getting the drugs and he took no precautions from anyone taking them who they weren't prescribed for. It cost two people their lives, either directly or indirectly really doesn't matter since they both died. IMO.

WORTH REPEATING:

93. Howard "The Coward" K. $tern, is up to it, AGAIN!
In the mist of yet another scandal, and the possibility of being "found out" how he fed ANS drugs and facilitated for her to be in an "disable estate" at all times to she felt she needed him, and pay his way to have him around, all the while he was forging checks and doing with her money as he saw fit, for his gain, HK$ has created another "wag the dog" tactic. He's trying to shift the attention and focus focus on the more pressing investigations, like the medical examiners criminal inquiry on the illegal prescriptions which may have very well lead to ANS's death. These were issued in his name.....
The focus into the possible criminal implications with Danniel's death, etc...
All the while he was, with criminal intent, manipulating ANS, and succking her dry...

HAS EVERYONE FORGOTTEN HOW THIS MAN IN OPEN COURT TESTIFIED TO BEING THE FATHER OF THE THE BABY GIRL, AND REFUSED TO SUMMIT THE BABY FOR TESTING BECAUSE IT WAS, TO HIM, NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD?

THIS IS THE SAME MAN WHO IN OPEN COURT, RECUSE HIS APPOINTMENT AS EXECUTOR AND GUARDIAN OF ANS'S WILL, WHILE TODAY HE REFUSES TO WITHDRAW LEGALLY, AND CLAIMS HE'S NOT GETTING PAID-------- RIGHT!

Boy you all need to take some pills, or wake up to the beauty of our established, et poorly understood and executed, legal system....

WAKE UP PEOPLE - HOWARD K $TERN IS A CRIMINAL..... AND HE'S TRYING LIKE HELL, ON GOD KNOWS WHO'S DIME, TO SHIFT ATTENTION AND COLLECT IF HE CAN ON ANYTHING....

RITA - YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.... YOU ARE A JOURNALIST, AND I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT WITH YOUR YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND ACCESS TI LEGAL ADVISE, YOU DID NOT DO ANYTHING UNETHICAL, AND LOW....

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

bet ME FIRST SWEET DAHLINGS Stern and Larry were together on
this somehow. I do believe that Larry and Stern have had gay
relations, I have no doubt Stern has a gay tape on Larry and he
threaten Larry to tell if he didn't agreed with him on the baby
conditions and the executorship of the WILL, not to terstify against
him on Daniel's inquest either!

LARRY IS JUST A SPERM DONOR WITH NO PERSONALITY, MAKING FRIENDS
WITH THE CREEP WHO TRIED TO KILLED HIS DAUGHTER "clown video', and
KIDNAPPED THE BABY FOR 7 MONTHS. Friends with the same creep he
fought to get his daughter.
What a pair of losers these 2 dahlings are!!!
