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."

just wondering    

...I believe Howard used his legal clout to keep himself in the game of fishing for the almighty dollar that he was praying she would inherit !!!!!!!....they needed each other...u cna't play with drugs the way they did ..( him providing) and think bad won't ocme from it...this all back fired on him bigtime!!!!!!!!!!...and she was destined for a early death because of being a addict!!!

What's Up With That?    

Howard is who is, but so is Rita, and it's not flattering - I have no respect for her anymore.

And, she's good buds with Larry's former attorney (who eats her own young), as well as Anna Nicole's mommy dearest...how can she write a fact-based, objective book?

She needs to raise her standards for damage control; if she's lucky, maybe the National Enquirer will hire her.

I hope this judge gives Rita a good smack-down; it's got to stop somewhere...sometime...but probably not in my lifetime...god, I need to go take my meds...

Let it Be    

Since the sad day of his dear Anna's burial, or in celebration of baby Dannielynn''s first birthday; I've not seen Howard publically involved in any social or partying scenes.

A broken life and a broken heart - These are the things that I've seen.

I'm reminded of the Teddy Pendergrass ballad; "So Sad the Song."

May God bless and keep 'you' until that glorious day.

He's so much more handsome without that awful long hair. I hate his radio show, but if this woman was lying about him, she deserves what she gets. The strange this is that young girl who used to be on different strokes appeared on Howard's radio show shortly before she died. I read somewhere that people were really crule and called in to the show and called her a has been. I don't know if Anna was on his show, but either way, it's not his fault people who call in to these talk shows are so mean.

Cici    

Think we'll be hearing Barbara Walters or Deborah Norville dissing Rita? Don't hold your breath. Well, they might do it for a pay off but not because of Rita's apparent total lack of ethics - they're too busy defending their buddy Paul McCartney - ad nauseum.
