Today's events so far:
Larry Birkhead (pictured above), Anna Nicole's ex-boyfriend and self-appointed father of Smith's daughter, Dannielynn Hope, fired attorney Debra Opri today just hours before a custody hearing in the Bahamas.
Earlier this week:
-- A computer that Anna Nicole's nurse was using in the room when Smith died has been confiscated.
-- Seminole tribal police and Bahamian authorities began meeting to discuss the probe into Anna Nicole Smith’s death, but prosecutors in Florida said Wednesday no homicide investigation was under way...“We are continuing to help law enforcement agencies and the medical examiner as they try and figure out the nature of this death,” said Ron Ishoy, Broward County state attorney’s office spokesman. “This is not a homicide investigation."
-- Fox News's own pompous *ss, Bill O'Reilly, is being sued for $10 million for defamation by another potential Dannielynn father (so the guy says), Prince von Anhalt (pictured above). It has been reported that von Anhalt actually bought his title from a broke princess.
O'Reilly said this on air: “Look, this guy’s a fraud,” O’Reilly said, according to a transcript of the show posted on the network’s Web site. “We know he’s a fraud. But let’s — what I want to talk about is — he’s done. His credibility is — is finished."
In the suit, von Anhalt alleges O'Reilly's on-air comments have harmed his reputation - that since O'Reilly's show aired, people give him dirty looks when he goes to the grocery store. Clearly he doesn't think throwing his hat in the ring as Dannielynn's potential father could draw the stares and snickers.
“They say, ‘Look, here comes the fraud,’ ” he said. “I get lots of e-mails from people bad-mouthing me. It’s very embarrassing.”
...Will this be wrapped up this year let alone in the next few weeks? Ridiculous.
