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.

DIAZ: I completely agree. A huge shift that happened when we were in Florida, Virgie Arthur and Larry Birkhead were just best of buddies. They were hugging in the courtroom. And Howard K. Stern was the odd man out. Today, it was Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead, just two feet away from each other. They were talking during the procession. They were very, very friendly with each other and Virgie Arthur was the odd person out. I agree completely with Harvey. She's not going away any time soon. This is a fight she will keep fighting for months and years to come.

The Big Show with John Gibson

February 26, 2007

CONNOR: Well, not only did Birkhead have a good day, but he has apparently managed to see Dannielynn this weekend. At least that's what tmz . com is reporting. They are saying that he and Howard K. Stern have been in settlement negotiations for several days.

From Exhibit 49 Rita's affadavit

Showbiz Tonight

February 27, 2007

HAMMER: Now Birkhead is continuing his fight for custody of Dannielynne. Stern has the baby in the Bahamas, where they lived with Anna Nicole. He has been resisting Birkhead`s efforts to settle the matter with a paternity test. But SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can tell you that may soon change.

HARVEY LEVIN, TMZ.COM : We are told that right now this dispute has very little, if anything, to do with custody of Dannielynne, that Howard K. Stern has all but conceded that Larry Birkhead is the father.

HAMMER: TMZ.com `s Harvey Levin tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT that Stern and Birkhead`s sides are talking. We know Birkhead wants the baby. So, what does Stern want?

LEVIN: They are negotiating basically money. And what Howard Stern wants to go away. And we`re told that two of the things on the table are the house that Anna Nicole bought before her death and the boat that she bought just before she died.

66. In this action, Howard K. Stern has made allegations that a number of statements in 'Blonde Ambition' are false and defamatory, or raise a false and defamatory implication. It is worth noting, however that there are any number of statements in the book that Howard does not challenge. Often these unchallenged statements reflect consistent information to statements or opinions that are challenged.

Rita tries to bribe nannies $15,000

The Liz Thompson (nannies lawyer) tape on the tube is not now available, one would assume it is major evidence against Rita due to her trying to bribe LT. Rita is not the brightest shining light bulb is she.

Rita’s Tape
by Greta Van Susteren

After the show I listened to Rita’s taped conversation with Lincoln Bain - spokesperson for the nannies. The taped call was per Rita in September.

***Lincoln says Nadine saw the video tape of Howard and Larry.Lincoln says he believes the nannies and believes Nadine. So??? Plot thickens…as this tape backs up Rita….tune in Monday to hear entire tape. It is important to hear all the evidence including this tape…

It is normal to challenge the most obvious defamation comments, that does not mean the others are dismissed!

"Stern is hardly in a position to challenge the public image he created on the Anna Nicole Show."

"As this court noted in not dissimilar circ*umstances, it is "somewhat incredible" that Stern ignored all these media reports-which he plainly was familiar with-and now complains about Blonde Ambition"

"In the face of the "train wreck" he supported on the Anna Nicole Show and the widespread news articles depicting him as a murderer, pimp. drug pusher, perjurer and basic exploiter of any opportunity for a buck, in this action Stern seeks $60 million to remedy an alleged loss of reputation caused by Blonde Ambition. However, he concedes, as he must, that he has no actual damages-having for years no income...."

"As the Second Circuit noted. when "a person's reputation is so low...even nominal damages are not to be awarded."

"In sum, plaintiff's reputation was so tarnished by the wealth of previously published reports concerning him that this Court should find him to be libel proof as a matter of law and dismiss all the challenged statements."

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

Makes no difference what anybody says, THERE IS NO TAPE AND NEVER WAS. Nobody can prove any statement made regarding the existance of this tape, it was a pure figment of the imagination, and dumb Rita printed it. What a numskull!
