'Gossip Girl'

Custody Battle Showdown

4/6/2009 5:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Gossip Girl" matriarch Kelly Rutherford just arrived at the L.A. County Courthouse to square off with soon-to-be-ex hubby Daniel Giersch in what has become a legal hate-fest.

Giersch didn't want their two-year-old son, Hermes Gustaf, to travel with Kelly to NYC to film "Gossip Girl." The judge allowed the travel temporarily, and today Giersch's lawyer says everyone will probably agree to some permanent custody deal.

Rutherford, who plays Lily van der Woodsen on the show, is pregnant with their second child ... always awkward.

UPDATE -- So much for optimism. Not much went down and nothing was decided. Both sides will back in court to do it all again soon.

Kelly is the same piece of work that bolted from her first husband because he was diagnosed with a debilitating disease. Yep, a living heart-donor she is! You have to feel bad for her child and the one on the way, what a mother!

She wanted 2 kids. She latched onto him as a sperm donor. She got her 2 kids in two years. She kicked him out. End of Story

This is such a common thing now that all that needs to happen is her throwing out flase allegations of abuse, molestation, drug use, alchol use, cheating, etc at the guy. She's your typical American single mom and unfortnately she will end up getting full custody, alimony and child support in a Los Angeles court room. Then she will spend the rest of her life complaining about how her husband mistreated her and feeding her kids to the paps for PR just like Denise Richards, Pam Andserson, Dina Lohan, etc do.

Yes, she left her first husband after he was diagnosed with some awful disease. And she also bragged, back in December, about how she was still breastfeeding her son, who was like 2 1/2 at the time. She said she may continue breastfeeding him until he was 4 or 5. She's a sicko. Probably knew back in December that her marriage was hitting the skids so she had to get the nipple stimulation from somewhere!! She seems like a real prize.....

I wonder if the Hermes brand is paying them to advertise... BOTH by naming their son "Hermes" AND by Dad wearing an Hermes "H" belt ($1,500) to court AND Mom carrying and Hermes Kelly bag ($10,000) to court?

Piece of work .....both of them.

This is one SICK woman. Whether she should even keep Hermes should be questioned, Exactly when should you stop breast feeding? When the next kid comes along to take their place so mommy continues to get her fix.

Wow, if anything, this is none of our business! These things happen everyday! If anything, I've met Kelly in person in NYC. She is a lovely gal. I have a 3 year old and I read many baby magazines, which she is sometimes in and her advice is great! And for those calling her sick for still breastfeeding.. FYI, there are a lot of mothers who breast feed their kids to 5-6 years of age. Its not uncommon and its not frowned down upon by doctors. It's all about your personal opinion! I'm sure her comment about breast feeding til such a such age, was taken out of context. Also, I don't give her EX much credit, especially since he bad mouthed the mother of his children to the public. Thats unclassy and just wrong!
