Jamie Foxx: I'm Not Gay (and I Could Eat Pizza in a Male Shower)

Late last week Jamie Foxx denied he's gay in response to suggestions made earlier in the week by fellow Sirius radio host Howard Stern. The two radio hosts are in the midst of an on-air war.

Foxx Said Stern of Foxx earlier last week: "He seems to be in some bizarre thing where he wants to start in with me so that he can get some attention for his channel on the Foxxhole, which is an interesting name too. The hole. I wonder which hole they're referring to? How many holes are in Jamie? He's got an ass and a mouth. I don't know what he does with them...I gotta sh*tload of stuff on Jamie which isn't a lot of fun...even the name change to Foxx, it's interesting that he chose the name 'Jamie,' I could get into the whole f***ing thing...My guess is we're probably not on the same team. I think he's playing for a way different team. I don't know what team he's on but it ain't my team."

Said Foxx on Friday: "I'm not gay...A lot of people say that I'm gay and that doesn't bother me, because I could eat a pizza in a male shower and not feel anything because I'm secure with myself. And I'm not gonna take that, Coward Stern. I'm not gonna take that from a person who has chronic gonorrhea."

Howard K. Stern settles lawsuit with Rita Cosby: "Stern was seeking big bucks for several blockbuster allegations in Cosby's Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death that he insisted were outright lies. Cosby falsely claimed Stern engaged in sexual romps with Smith's baby daddy Larry Birkhead and also suggested the former paternity foes hatched a secret deal in which Stern agreed to support Birkhead's eventually successful bid to gain custody over Dannielynn in exchange for the celebrity photographer backing Stern to remain as executor of the late Playmate's estate."

NY Judge: Howard K. Stern Can't Sue for Being Called Gay

Calling someone gay is not grounds for a defamation case, a New York judge ruled yesterday, with regard to a $60 million lawsuit brought by Howard K. Stern against author Rita Cosby over claims she made in her "tell-all" book about Anna Nicole Smith, Blond Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death.

Stern_birkhead "Southern District of New York Judge Denny Chin said in a ruling Wednesday that a 'veritable sea change in attitudes about homosexuality' has led him to conclude that today the New York Court of Appeals would not hold that calling someone a homosexual was defamation per se. However, the judge also said that statements asserting homosexual conduct might be found by a jury to be defamatory in Stern v. Cosby, 07 Civ. 8536."

More from the New York Law Journal:

First, the U.S. Supreme Court's decision invalidating laws criminalizing homosexual conduct in Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003).

"[T]o the extent that courts previously relied on the criminality of homosexual conduct in holding that a statement imputing homosexuality subjects a person to contempt and ridicule ... Lawrence has foreclosed such reliance," Chin said.

"Second, in 2009, the 'current of contemporary public opinion' does not support the notion that New Yorkers view gays and lesbians as shameful or odious," he said, citing the movement to legalize gay marriage and a poll showing that gay marriage is favored by 51 percent of New Yorkers and there was a two-thirds majority in favor of civil unions.

"Finally, the New York Court of Appeals has not, in its most recent opinion touching on social attitudes toward homosexuality, given any indication that it perceives widespread disapproval of homosexuality in New York," he said.

Chin did say, however, that allegations of homosexual acts were possibly grounds for defamation because they are "susceptible to a defamatory meaning." Chin reportedly allowed the case to proceed to trial on 11 of the 19 statements originally listed in the complaint, according to Stern's lawyer.

In December 2008, Cosby had motioned to dismiss the defamation claims.

Author Rita Cosby on Stern-Birkhead Sex: It's Not a 'Lewd Act'

If you can believe it, the court battles are still going on between author Rita Cosby and Howard K. Stern. The latest news is that Cosby filed a motion to dismiss the $60 million lawsuit Stern served her with for alleging, among other things, that Stern and Larry Birkhead were having a gay affair and that a sex tape exists.

Stern_birkheadIn Cosby's motion to dismiss the defamation claims, Cosby says "the fact that Howard and Larry videotaped a sexual encounter does not make the acts any more negative."

The Smoking Gun: "Even if she was wrong when reporting that Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead had a sexual encounter, the author of a book about Anna Nicole Smith contends that the claim is not 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.'' This 'not-that-there's-anything-wrong-with-it' defense is included in a new federal court declaration filed by TV journalist Rita Cosby, whose 2007 book 'Blonde Ambition' triggered a defamation lawsuit brought by Stern, Smith's lawyer and confidante. In her book, Cosby reported that Stern and Birkhead, father to Smith's daughter Dannielynn, engaged in sexual relations, and that a videotape of the two men having sex existed and was viewed by Smith, who died last February. In a December 19 U.S. District Court declaration, an excerpt of which you'll find below, Cosby argues that 'the fact that Howard and Larry videotaped a sexual encounter does not make the acts any more negative.'"

Anna Nicole Bodyguard Claims Larry Birkhead is Gay


On recent nights you may have seen Anna Nicole's daughter Dannielynn paraded across a cemetery in the Bahamas by Larry Birkhead under the gaze of entertainment TV cameras. Well, so has Anna Nicole's former bodyguard, and he's not happy about it. He talked to Access Hollywood about Birkhead's recent well-televised return to Anna Nicole's grave with his daughter: "I thought that was very disgusting, I thought it was staged. I do believe he loves his daughter, but the thing is, when he comes on TV and he parades her off, it seems like it's like a laugh in Anna's face. Like, 'Ha! I got her anyway!’"

The bodyguard also claims that Birkhead is gay and was only a sperm donor to Anna Nicole. Said Big Moe (ironically, that's his name): "Well, (Anna Nicole) told me that, you know, he was a homosexual. She knew deep down that he didn't want to be with her...Anybody that's been around Anna, they would know that Larry wouldn't be her type. First of all, she liked men that was wealthy, I mean that's no secret...Because of how Larry looked, she figured, oh my child would look great. Blonde hair, blue eyes, you know, 'Go great with me and my baby will come out beautiful.'"

It's not the first time the rumor has surfaced. In April 2007 a male model named Kerrick Ross came forward claiming to be Birkhead's lover. And in September last year, a tell-all book by Rita Cosby claimed that Birkhead and lawyer Howard K. Stern were involved sexually and made secret deals to split Smith's estate. In the meantime, lawsuits have been filed.
