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.

Cool    


Where in the doc*uments do they say this: "Hachette Books' Motion and Cosby's Motion both make it clear that without the gay sex story, the book would never have been accepted for publication"???


TIA

OK, I am just now at #69 in the Hatchette's Summary for Judgment
files but some contract/affidavit discrepancies.


1. After a few days, publisher requests something unreported
2. Agent gives 2 clues (only 1 remembered) with a 'holy sh!t' effect
3. Publisher in affidavit states the holy sh!t was not the reasoning
behind the agreement, In other words #16 request unreported facts,
#21 states not the reason for publishing #24 Hatchette's offer was
contingent with the 'holy sh!t' factor as evidenced in the contract
as well. #21 seems false.

Howard: A Million Tear$

Posted Feb 12th 2007 2:01PM by TMZ Staff

Howard K. Stern is reportedly about to make bank over Anna Nicole Smith -- by giving a "tell-all" interview to "Entertainment Tonight" -- just days after Anna's death.

The buzz is that "ET" forked over a cool $1 million for the exclusive interview, which begins airing in segments tonight, but exact details of the deal remain secret. TMZ was unable to confirm that, but it's a safe bet it's a large number. The interview takes place during Howard's flight from Florida to the Bahamas to secure Dannielynn.

In a preview clip posted on YouTube, Stern is seen "crying" over Anna's death while bleating lines like, "I just want her to be with Daniel, I hope that they're happy ... she was such a wonderful person."

Blond Ambition_, p. 165, PI:


" A month before this drug related testimony (Seidlien's courtt) unbeknownst to Howard K Stern and Alex Goen, CEO of TrimSpa, one day in late January, Larry Birkhead met for several hours with seven Bahamian police detectives. Larry made some shocking allegations. The meeting was also attended and witnessed by fifty-two-year-old Mark Speer, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy, who was doing security for Larry Birkhead between October and March. He traveled with him everywhere including Florida, Los Angeles, and the Bahamas and saw first-hand some dramatic and very telling revelations.


During the meeting, Larry provided verbal and written statements with explosive details of money funneling, drug use and worse. Going on record Larry Birkhead told police that Howard was funneling approximately $15,000 at least every other week, wiring it to his parents in offshore accounts. According to Larry, several million dollars had been wired. He said that Bahamian police should check Howard's bank accounts and Anna's checkbook.


But he also told police officers that "TrimSpa was a joke" and that "the owner, Alex Goen, knew Anna wouldn't and couldn't lose weight that way." So, he said, " Goen supplied human growth hormone, a body fat reducer, and methamphetamines, an appetite suppressing, heart-racing stimulant often called "speed." "

From Exhibit a of Littlefield's Declaration.

http://archives.cnn.com/2002/SHOWBIZ/TV/08/05/ew.hot.annanicole/

I felt a pang of sorrow for Smith's 16 year-old son, Daniel, whom Smith calls on the phone. Her fuzzed voice barely forming words that turn into the cooing some people do with babies, Smith practically begs Daniel to tell her he loves and misses her; instead, the poor kid looks dazed and embarrassed. He's the most intelligent person on screen.

+++++++++++++++++++++


more excerpts from article:


It was a depressing saga, mostly because it doc*umented the desperation of a young Texan woman to become rich, famous, and happy, very nearly attaining her goal, but who has now ended up an unhappy figure of E! ridicule.


''It's not supposed to be funny -- it just is!'' says E!'s ad campaign for the show. Sorry, not so. At one point, lawyer Stern tells Smith that some young people just drove by, saw the E! cameras, and asked if they were ''making a porno movie.'' Jokingly, Smith says yes, they are.

The thing is, it's no joke. In exploiting a barely coherent Anna Nicole Smith, E! is doing something that comes pretty close to being obscene.

Exhibit U from the declaration of Littlefield

New York Post February 12, 2007

-SLIMEBALL'S 'PATERNAL' IN$TINCTS (M)-LAWYER HAS PATERNAL IN$TINCTS (S, LCF)

Andrea Peyser

THAT poor child doesn't stand a chance.

Bimbo lawyer Howard K. Stern waited until Anna Nicole Smith's body was cold and stiff before flying into the Bahamas with dollar signs in his eyes.

Stern is one of three men, so far, to claim to be Anna Nicole Smith's baby daddy. Even a dead man's name has been mentioned.

But Stern demonstrated his priorities lean to cash, not blood, by sweeping into the island nation egregiously late, cry crocodile tears for the TV cameras.

Clutching little Dannielynn's snoozing body as if for the first time, which it probably was, he wailed on cue. But his eyes looked dry.

"This is the only piece of Anna I have left!" Stern declared, using an unfortunate choice of words, considering Anna's randy reputation and the baby's tender age.

This loving daddy waited more than two days to stage this reunion. Even then, he hinted that his appearance was forced by events. "I wouldn't even be here now," he said, "but I had to bet back to Dannielynn."

Had to get back? A real, concerned dad would return to his motherless child in seconds.

It did not take long for Howard to reveal that his most passionate feelings tend not toward his dead girlfriend, for he was on record as being Anna Nicole's latest, nor toward his would-be daughter.

Within minutes, he lashed out at Virgie Arthur, the mother from whom Anna Nicole was estranged. Virgie, you see, beat Howard to the Bahamas by more than 24 hours - and has been trying to prevent Sten from getting his filthy hands on the kid.

"As long as I have breath in my body, that woman will not see Dannielynn," he said.

Howard K. Stern's name appears on the birth certificate as Dannielynn's father, but as with every detail in Anna Nicole's twisted life and horrible death, nothing is as it seems.

So many candidates have sprung out of the woodwork for the job of daddy that I'm wondering how I can apply. Another ex-boyfriend says he's the daddy. So has the wacky husband of Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Anna Nicole's half-sister insists the bombshell was impregnated with the sperm of her dead billionaire husband, J. Howard Marshall II. Whoever wins the prize stands to control up to $474 million from Marshall's estate. And that's what all the fuss is about.

Poor, innocent baby. So many want you. But you are alone.

Jill from Western Australia    

1. Rita hastily wrote a book with un-researched facts...purely to make money..she slandered Larry & HK$!
2. HK$ purchased & supplied the drugs that killed ANS & Daniel!
3. They are both DESPICABLE...however IMO HK$ should win this lawsuit...RITA IS DONE!!!
4. HK$ should take the money & run...he will never get 6% from the Marshall case...he really should be prosecuted for lying
under oath/his involvement with drugs & the deaths.
5. Larry is doing a GR8 job of raising Dannielynn...leave him alone!

17. 16. She conveniently forgot to produce the sex tape for the court which is why she was sued in the first place.

Posted at 9:58PM on Dec 30th 2008 by Rita will lose


She does not have to produce the tape.

Posted at 10:08PM on Dec 30th 2008 by HK$ is Going Down (in more ways than one) ;) LOL

==================

CORRECT, but she has to prove the validity of it (difficult as it does not exist) and guess what all her witnesses have gone shy on her (dissappeared).. They do not back her and also she tried to bribe the Nannies lawyer Elizabeith Thompson in the Bahamas. It's all on video and cannot be denied. Rita has already lost her case, she knows it, pity you don't research.
More millions $ for Howard, he is on the up, up, uuuuuuuuuppppppppppppppppp. Yippee!

One of the doc*uments is a copy of an email message sent by attorney Tracy Ferguson to Howard Stern, Ms. Smith’s partner, and the man she says is the father of her young baby daughter.

Ms. Ferguson, whose firm Callenders & Co. represented Ms. Smith at one point, says in the message dated October 10 that she stands by her assertions that Mr. Stern invited "even entreated me" to make a false declaration to the registrar general to the effect that the deed to American developer Ben Thompson was sent for processing in error.

Deputy Supreme Court Registrar Ernie Wallace is scheduled to hear an application today whereby Mr. Thompson’s attorney Godfrey "Pro" Pinder is seeking to have him declared the rightful owner of the house known as Horizons.

"This is entirely consistent with your apparent predilection to make false utterances when it suits your purpose," Ms. Ferguson writes.

She goes on to say that at the request of her law partner, Michael Scott, she wrote to Mr. Stern and told him that in no way would the firm "be a party to a false declaration on your part that the immigration minister did not receive the cheque drawn on this firm’s account payable to the Public Treasury in the amount of $10,000. You and I are both aware of the fact that I delivered the cheque to Shane Gibson which I did in your presence and at your direction."

Immigration Minister Shane Gibson has repeatedly denied that he accepted the cheque personally to pay for the permanent residency of Ms. Smith. Immigration authorities have said that she was granted permanent residency based on the fact that she bought a million-dollar house in The Bahamas.

Ms. Ferguson writes to Mr. Stern, "I have discussed this exchange with Michael and he is appalled that you as a lawyer would seek to twist the facts to suit your convenience even to the extent of making false statements when you deem it appropriate to do so. We are incensed at your continuing conduct of belittling me and Michael and the firm, particularly behind our back. Howard, this is improper and simple cowardice."

After reading the posts here I have come to the conclusion that Rita Cosby is sitting somewhere on her computer drunk and very desperate.

Sorry Rita, you blew it. And the fact that Howard K Stern is a pig is irrelevant.
