Thread Number 3
Hmm, Virgie in a chair. . .waiting. Nice wallpaper for HKS.
We still don't know that they WON'T make him co-guardian.
That’s why I’m not jumping on the burn Virgie bandwagon. Not one DARN person knows what is going on in that frickin’ courtroom but they can’t wait to pick up Stern’s talking points...i.e...”If it was up to me it would have been settled today”. BS...Dannielynn would not have gotten out of Horizons any sooner. So what if it turns out that Stern and Larry have agreed to a co-guardianship and that’s what Virgie is fighting. I personally don’t think that’s the case because if so I don’t think Virgie would be so complimentary to Birkhead. This is becoming a public relation war and the only reason why is because the one liked the most will make the most money when the dust settles(and in the case of Stern avoid prison time). Larry has AccessHollywood...Stern has ET and now Virgie is jumping on with Fox.
Virgie had a stroke a few years and during the interview Greta says something like I know you’re not good with dates. I think it was probably rehearsed but some people aren’t very good communicator but that doesn’t mean that they are lying . Our President has gotten slammed repeatedly for not being a good communicator.
There’s a collective sigh of relief that Larry and Daniel are here. As for the inquest Leroy has done his job and most of the press is running scared. Totally disgusting!!

thanks for posting this link. great interview!
“Virgie Arthur realizes no matter what she says, some people will always be convinced she is after the money.”
What’s that saying....’truer words were never spoken’.
Hang tough Virgie.
Hi there! I don't see the point of getting involved in the Larry vs. Virgie debate...
IMO Larry will be awarded sole custody. He's a fit parent with no criminal background, and no court will take sole custody away from him...
What is a roombox? (Like a diarama?)
I have seen all of the CSI Las Vegas up to the episode where Nick is buried alive. I have heard spoilers that Gil and Sarah got together after that. I need to see if any new seasons are out on DVD to catch up. I think Grisson is so cool. I like the actor (I’ve seen him in other things) and I like the character Grissom.
I remember Virgie’s testimony differently. That she was asked did she take and or sell pictures of that occasion. She said she did not. Then she said that her sister in law took pictures. When asked what arrangements or deals her sister in law made with the pictures, I recall her saying she had no part in it and did not know anything about her sister in law’s
actions in that regard. I don’t recall her saying “no” when asked if her sister in law sold them. Just claimed no involvement in or knowledge of it (except that she did take pictures).
Hi there! Welcome.
Please check my post #10,495. Can we reconcile my memory of her testimony, and your post here? I don’t think we are way far apart. In my post I was replying to the assertion that Virgie denied a relative of hers did “this” when testifying, then told Greta differently last night. And I don’t thing Virgie did THAT.
Is it possible that some on this thread, just like in the media, don’t know or understand the difference between:
CUSTODY of a CHILD
VISITATION of a CHILD
CUSTODIAL responsibilities for an ESTATE
and have missed each time she’s CLEARLY stated:
Virgie Arthur DOES NOT want CUSTODY of DL.
Virgie Arthur DOES want VISITATION with DL.
Virgie Arthur DOES want to participate in the legal (CUSTODIAL) responsibilities of ANS’s estate.
Lot’s of folks read and vist our thread. Can we at least get this straight, once and for all? If you’re not sure of VA’s position, go back and read the transcript of her interview with Greta.
On the stand in Fort Lauderdale, Arthur was hammered with questions about any compensation she has or would receive from news organizations for access to interviews or footage after the deaths of her daughter and grandson.
She frequently said no to questions about arrangements with specific media outlets, and sidestepped other questions or claimed she didnt understand them.
Have you in any fashion profited at all from the death of your daughter? asked Krista Barth, an attorney for Stern.
Arthur stared for a moment. Im trying to process that question, she said. Then Arthur attempted to deflect the attention, pointing at Stern.
He has, she said.
It was a refrain Arthur repeated several times in an attempt to raise suspicions about Stern and the unsolved deaths of her daughter and grandson.
I knew she would be next. My grandson did not overdose. Howard was there when he died, and Howard was there when my daughter died. And he has my granddaughter now and it is not even his child. Im afraid for her life as well, Arthur said, crying. Please, help us.
Stern shook his head. Earlier in Arthurs testimony, he angrily rose from his seat, but the judge interrupted him before he could complete a sentence.
You have no podium here, Mr. Stern, the judge said. Appreciate you being here, though.
Later in the day, Arthur acknowledged that she had received some compensation from news organizations. She said the tabloid news agency Splash paid to fly her to the Bahamas when she visited her grandsons grave last month, and she acknowledged her sister-in-law had sold family video footage.
Arthur also acknowledged that a Splash representative accompanied her to a viewing of Smiths body Wednesday afternoon.
VAN SUSTEREN: Now let’s talk about who got what money. Did you get any money from any news organization or media outlet since Daniel died?
ARTHUR: OK. Splash magazine. And all they do is sell pictures.
VAN SUSTEREN: OK.
ARTHUR: You know. And this was way before Daniel died that they came to me and asked me, did I want to, you know, sell them some pictures, you know, of Daniel and Vickie and the family, and did I want to do a book? You know, and I thought well, you know, I might think about it. And that’s all I told them, I might think about it. So I did give them some pictures.
VAN SUSTEREN: How much did you get?
VAN SUSTEREN: How much did you get?
ARTHUR: Oh, how much money?
VAN SUSTEREN: Yes.
ARTHUR: Five thousand dollars.
VAN SUSTEREN: How many pictures?
ARTHUR: Oh, I don’t know, bunch, a bunch, you know, 50, 100, a bunch of pictures.
VAN SUSTEREN: Did you give them to use for as long as they wanted or to just use them in one-time deal with them?
ARTHUR: No. They can use them for whatever.
VAN SUSTEREN: OK. All right. So you got $5,000 from Splash for pictures. Any other money?
ARTHUR: No. That’s all I have got.
VAN SUSTEREN: What about any relative of yours get any money?
VAN SUSTEREN: Yes. Like I mean, it was like, you know, anyone who you besides Anna Nicole Vickie? Like did any family member cut any deal that you know of?
ARTHUR: Not that I know of, no.
VAN SUSTEREN: OK. So there is no other money pouring into your family?
VAN SUSTEREN: How about your legal bills? Who is paying those?
ARTHUR: Well, I’m going to have to pay those.
VAN SUSTEREN: Nobody has made a promised to pay them?
VAN SUSTEREN: No lawyer has gotten paid?
