Rita to Anna's Men: Nothin' Wrong with Gay Sex

12/30/2008 9:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The famous "Seinfeld" line, "Not that there's anything wrong with that" is forever part of the pop culture lexicon. And if Rita Cosby has her way, it will be a legal defense, too.

Birkhead
Cosby claimed in her questionable Anna Nicole Smith book that Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern had a sexual tryst -- which was allegedly videotaped. Stern has filed a defamation lawsuit against Cosby.

Now...in a response filed earlier this month, Cosby says her claims can't be defamatory because "engaging in a homosexual tryst, even if videotaped, does not reflect poorly on someone and in the 21st Century it most certainly is not a 'criminal lewd act.'" Cosby should bottle her gall and sell it for $60 mil.

And speaking of $60 mil... that's how much Stern is suing Cosby and the publishers of her book "Blonde Ambition" for.

As ANS's casket was about to be carried into the Church, VA had a hearing going on considering her Motion before the Supreme Court in Nassau. She was asking to be named ANS's next of kin and be granted possession of the body. This Motion was denied, in large part because Seidlin's Court in FL had already ruled on the identical issues brought forth again in The Bahamas and Courts in 'friendly' Nations rarely over-rule non-criminal Court decisions from another.

Generally speaking, if someone had a new civil issue to be heard before a Court, it would be the Supreme Court. Only minor, straight-forward issues like Small Claims, or Landlord-Tenant disputes would go to Magistrate's Courts.

The Bahamian system is based on the British system, but the entire population of The Bahamas would nicely fit into a couple of the 32 boroughs of Greater London, England alone.

466. "McCabe has changed the 'damage' done to VA from his original and two other versions of his complaint in the State case."

He also uses the standby argument that her reputation has suffered as a result of the article's insinuations of incest (his word) along with the little 'vote box' for bloggers (standard TMZ fare). I don't know how many filings--seems like a lot--go in to the song and dance of her respected reputation as a policewoman for 28 years, etc. etc....you know, the sterling character routine now blemished by the likes of some bloggers and Howard and his sister and Art Harris and now Larry. Then the 'loss of custody and/or visitation' (McC's words again) claim is repeated. BTW his Objection to Special Appearances for both Bonnie and Art Harris is a really nasty torrent of accusations about Art Harris. Did the judge ever rule on his Motion? That was how this whole thing was renewed after languishing since April in the 190th district court and then it was transferred. The judge in this court called a hearing in November about the lack of response to filings for Special Appearances by BS and AH. I suppose his Motion Objecting to their Special Appearances for Jurisdiction is his belated response.

Yes, I agree, McCabe has been consistent in his description of the 'personal' harm to VA. I can't imagine that people living around VA didn't already know who she was. How many of her neighbors saw the TMZ story and Poll? How could the reaction to VA by strangers around the world be inconsistent with or worse than the opinions held by her own neighbors?

Most on earth didn't know she had a living Mother until after ANS's death. I'm sure her neighbors knew she was ANS's Mother. If the language we see from O'Q/McCabe is any indication of TX 'attitudes', then VA's 'reputation' as ANS's Mother, woman with 5 husbands, etc., couldn't have changed much since the TMZ story.

I don't know about other Special appearances, but even Wood took 90 days 'prep time' without argument when talks of when HKS's Special Appearance would be held during the 12/11/08 Court proceedings.

I always wondered if HKS and/or his attys knew that Virgie was having the hearing that morning? They seemed to all be at the church, or if it was a sneaky last move? It appeared to viewers that it was an emergency type hearing. It would be interesting if no one was representing Seidlin's ruling?

Attention Ho    

478. What about if Bonnie herself was tossed? Would that dismiss the bloggers and leave the 3 you mentioned above?

I understand the Federal and State differences, so relying on the whole conspiracy thing would be the only reason for jurisdiction. I believe you mentioned the Special Appearances hearing in March earlier, today's filing will not prolong that date will it? Or if a different hearing, on a different subject is scheduled past that date, that will not affect the Special Appearances hearing, right? That should stand and never change?

Without Bonnie, the bloggers are not implicated in this State lawsuit as having done anything more than express their personal opinions. McCabe would look phenomenally foolish to pursue the bloggers without the Bonnie 'connection' he alleges was key to the bloggers' actions. Without Bonnie as the alleged 'go between', HKS is not a potential party to the lawsuit, either.

The March 20, 2009 date for the Special Appearances Hearing does presume that depositions and other discovery has been completed beforehand. Wood has said he has no problem making HKS and his paperwork available well before that date for deposition and inspection, respectively. McCabe might still whine about something and change the date - he's not as predictable/reliable as Wood. After all, Wood is planning to move in for the kill during that hearing. McCabe's entire lawsuit is the target.

Now why would Bonnie be tossed? Do you know something?
What an odd thing to post.
Interesting.

I go with 'sneaky last move' myself. Recall, ANS was buried on a Friday, just two days after a FL Appeals Court Panel upheld Seidlin's decision. At the time of the burial, it wasn't known if O'Q and crew were going to request a ruling from the full Court of Appeals or approach the FL Supreme Court. Who could have guessed VA would ask a Bahamian Court to alter the course of events sanctioned by two FL Courts?

Check the date: 03/02/07. Way back then VA had a Supreme Court Justice tell her to her face that she had no legal rights regarding her own daughter. She knew back then that legally she was not the next of kin of even ANS, much less DL, in both the USA and The Bahamas. Her custody/guardianship claim for DL was a non-starter and VA knew it.

• VA had no chance of gaining any legal position with DL and she knew it from March 2, 2007.

It's a scam to suggest anyone or any type of publicity interfered with legal rights she knew right off the bat she didn't have in either the USA or The Bahamas. The 'bloggers' lawsuit is based on this scam.

They really are incapable of following the docs and the conversation. Bonnie has a Special Appearance before the Court as well as HKS.

Since the alleged conspiracy connects everyone, if one goes... there goes the conspiracy!

Well said. The impact of the new story on TMZ today about sworn statements provided by HKS and LB denying key elements of the O'Q/McCabe/Cosby/Opri actual conspiracy, filed in the Speer defamation lawsuit, should be equally challenging for some to follow. ☺

They must have sat together over coffee while howie wrote them up.lol. How believable is 2 guys who have already perjured themselves in court? IMo they are jokes and worse. Poor Poor Dannielynn.
