Rita Cosby Served with Howard K. Stern Lawsuit at Book Party

Former MSNBC host and author Rita Cosby was served with the $60 million libel lawsuit from attorney Howard K. Stern yesterday at her own book party, according to The Insider. Stern is suing for $10 million in compensatory and $50 million in punitive damages over allegations made in Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death including claims that Stern and Larry Birkhead were sexually involved and conspired to share Anna Nicole Smith's estate.

Cosby told US Magazine: "What crossed my mind...they knew I was walking into a big book party. It just shows you that with these guys it's all just smoke and mirrors. It's all PR and spin. And that's what I write about in my book. So I'm not surprised that they used this opportunity. This is par for the course for these characters."

  4. This time Rita stepped waaaay-over the edge. I think that she'll settle big-time to make Stern's suit go away...if it gets to a jury she'll lose big-time.

    Enjoy your fifteen-minutes, Dahling.

  5. As a side issue pet peeve, I just hate it when people use a percentage over 100%, i.e. "110%" or in this case, "120%." When did this start? I mean, come on, are we supposed to think someone is more serious because they "stand by it 110%....120%?" Oh, you must be serious because you stand by it more than 100%.... sorry to's just a pet peeve.

  7. If they can prove she was being malicious they might have a case.

  8. "This is par for the course for these characters."

    I don;t think she realizes that she's one of those characters as well.
