“No, I just loved Barbaro and love the Derby.”

Me too! Sooooo thankful there were no injuries today. Here are a couple of good Barbaro stories:

If she doesn’t run, she’ll probably get a deal to make a ‘reality show’ out of her stay in jail!! If she does, by chance, do her time, she will definitely end up making money off of it in some way....writing a book, interviews, tv appearances, etc.!! If she had ANY SENSE at all, she would DONATE that money to MADD or some other worthy charity, but most likely, she won’t!

This is what really gets me about Virgie. She wants a hand in managing Dannielynn’s money, yet she is racking up legal fees right and left, saying she is going to pay them, and with what, I ask? IMO she will be up the creek without a paddle if she isn’t appointed as one of the handlers of Dannielynn’s money .. she needs her fees to pay her attorney’s fees, expenses, and whatever amounts he is fronting her, unless some mag was paying her living expenses in the Bahamas.

She is spending more than she makes, very impractical, lol. And is counting on something almost as elusive as winning the lottery to get her through.

If the custody deal in the Bahamas is “just a formality” why cannot her request be dropped, without everyone having to make court appearances? If it’s “just a formality” is her attorney appearing for free? And Larry’s attorney? Humph! Phooey!

Can you even imagine having to submit requests for money for Dannielynn to Virgie? Ah, G_d, the POWER!!

Chit! I’m making myself mad!

“As to the paternity issue, that was Anna’s thing up until the day she died. After that, it really didn’t take too long in the scheme of things to get that settled. Sure, Howard advised her and helped her. That was his role.”
___________

I don’t exactly agree with you that the ‘paternity’ was Anna’s thing’, because I believe that Howard FED Anna’s insecurities about Larry before she even left LA, and I believe he continued to feed her insecurities about Larry AND her own insecurities about her drug use (all while he and Dr. Kris were increasing the amount of drugs she was taking)!

I wish I could have your same impartial, optimism about HKS, but I just cannot. I believe that if the majority of the population were put in Howard’s position, your assumptions would be correct, but I believe Howard is in the .1 percentile of the population. I will agree with you that he was definitely Anna’s lackey and she didn’t treat him very well. I believe he took it as long as he could, and then things happened that made him feel he’d had enough! I think one of the reasons he’d had enough is because he was aware of at least 3 pregnancies that occurred since he came into her life (not by him, obviously), and she miscarried all 3 of those babies. I am not sure that all of those miscarriages were accidental, and I don’t mean that Anna caused them either! I think when Anna got pregnant with Larry’s baby that was the absolute last straw for HKS! He had ‘put up with her shit’ and fought his ass off so that she (and HE) would get a ‘substantial part’ of the Marshall fortune for so long and he was not going to have some man come in and ‘take it away from him’! Because, in his mind, he had ‘earned’ it and in some way, he had ‘earned’ the right to tell her what to do as well!

I think you’ve stated that you believe that KE is in some way responsible for Anna’s death. I will say that I agree with you there. I also believe that if HKS and KE never met, things may be different. But, the fact is, they did meet, and somewhere along the way, they did something ‘deadly’.

Anna seemed to be paranoid about people using her, and I think she had those feelings about Larry, rightly or wrongly. Howard sure didn’t help foster their relationship by giving them space, hehe. Maybe HE thought Larry wouldn’t be good for Anna in the long-term. He also knew Anna very well, and probably realized she didn’t really fall in love with her guys, even though she probably told all of them she loved them, and a number of them that she wanted to have their baby!
I believe the storyline that Anna and Howard met KE at the same time, when they moved next door to her. I’ve seen no other facts or reason to dispute it.
Neither Howard or Anna were normal in the sense of how most of us lead our lives and they sure didn’t live that way, but it seemed normal to them. Remember when he said on the stand that Anna had boyfriends in between the times he and Anna were intimate, but that he wanted her to be happy? I actually believed him, and it solidified my opinion of him as being a wimpy puppydog who was never all that ambitious. I guess I don’t see him as having a big ego, since his ego became so intertwined with Anna’s. He figured out long ago how to stay involved in Anna’s life, and though he loved her and would have liked more, sooner, he was happy enough with what he got. I always thought he was her closest friend, and he knew her better than anyone, except Daniel.

Excellent post, Fluffytoo!!!! I too am having a difficult time with the Virgie bashing. I can not understand why anyone would not feel compassion for Virgie.

As you stated so well, Virgie has lost so much, in such a short period of time. I’m amazed at the strenght she has shown, inspite of much adversity. I continue to admire her greatly.

Godspeed to Virgie as she fights against HKS and his diabolical schemes.

Doesn’t make me mad in the least, I’m glad Virgie is fighting HKS every step of the way... However, if you take that statment and, word for word, change Virgie to HKS, like this:

Dr. Baden was very clear in his assessment of the drugs. Dr Perper was even clearer....."She probably would have lived if she had been taken to the hospital BECAUSE they would have controlled the drugs".

KE was even clearer when asked whether she knew the combination was dangereous. "I know".......but she administered them anyways.

Not only did she know, she flew off to California just a few hours before she died. She said she called twice...The night she got back to California and the morning she died....and she was fine. Well, that just couldn't be.

The one big thing that is wrong with the tale Moe told is why he called Taz to check on Anna in the first place.

There's a missing piece and it has to be a phone call FROM HOWARD TO MOE when he was close to the dock.....telling Moe to call Taz. And if Taz said she was okay...why did Brigitte go and check on her further???? ...Cause Taz never checked.

The "She didn't want to go to the hospital bit???? So why did they even call 9-11?? IF she was alive, 9-11 would have rushed her to the hospital so that bit doesn't hold up.

Howard and KE set this whole thing up. The two people who were giving her drugs disappeared from the scene. Amazing timing?? Me thinks not. Premeditated murder is probably a lot closer to the truth.

Two people died before their time and no one cares except Virgie.

We just had a death in the family. My son is supporting his sister, myself and others emotionally. He came in from NYC. It means a lot. How lucky we are to have each other!!

The grandchildren (it was their grandfather who died) are having a hard time.

Sometimes when I would talk to her about my father, she would say: "Does it make you sad to talk about your dad?" I'd say: "No, it makes my happy. He was just so wonderful". Now, she will understand.

Sorry, off topic a bit.

I have to agree with you 100%. Howard made that "I hate Mommy" video for one reason....so he could say..."See this!!!"

Virgie was right....Something was very wrong with that video...It hints of "pre-meditation"....something that Anna wasn't wishing for. Her two best friends.

My question now is?? How best friends were KE and Anna?? KE was obviously a "paid" best friend.

I can picture Anna confiding in KE and KE passing everything unto Howard. I believe Anna was going to testify against Howard at the inquest and had told KE in secret. The rest is History.

Agree - FEMA is comprised of people first. There is no way to plan for natural disasters until they strike. The logistics would be a challenge under any circumstance. When you realize that Greensburg has no water, gas, electricity, roads, structures - it’s akin to pioneers moving west in wagons.

What was devastating about Katrina was watching people find the energy to loot and others passively waiting for the Govmint to make decisions for them.

I agree with all of you who found something wrong with the "I hate Mommy" video. Something creepy and rehearsed, as if she read a script or was not quite normal?

I also have a difficult time imagining KE and ANS as friends. It is not the age difference so much as the IQ, education, lifestyle, and other things

Well, SDC was a hot and muggy day. Did NOT get to see the darn acrobats. We put off going until too late and a Saturday is definitely NOT the day to go. Waited in line three separate times to see them and the place filled up before we got there. We did see some other acts (Polynesian dancers, african singers, some guy from Aussie land) that made the day worthwhile and, of course, the meal at the Mill was sooo good. Plus, since we are idiots, we did not “get” what parking lot we parked on so when the tram took us back we had to walk across to the one we ACTUALLY parked at. I guess since we ate like hogs it is a good thing we were walking our azzes off. I gotta get me some betta walking shoes!

No luck finding curtains yesterday. We went everywhere. Didn’t get home til 3:30. Missed the Kentucky Derby.

Do you KNOW how hard it is to find cafe curtains in decent fabric colors these days. I went everywhere. Finally gave up and decided to go to the fabric store today and make them myself. Yep. Gonna do it. Last resort of desperation. WTH do people do for decent kitchen tiers these days anyway? JCP Custom Decorating? Ain’t got the money for that. Will fire up the old sewing machine and see if i still remember how to use it. Too bad my daughters not here to help me with the bobbin and theading the maching. That’s the hardest part, threading the maching. Up thru this thing, over that thing. around the other thing. Drives me nuts.

In addition to the legal quagmires ANS left behind, she leaves an even more fascinating psychological case study in group dynamics. That material would make a better movie IMHO.

Picture this: 2 well educated professionals dependent on one promiscuous, illiterate, dingy, 8th grade drop-out for their income and lifestyle. What the hail did these three people have in common?

It seems likely that HK$ and KE eventually resented and despised Anna. She was demanding, willful and did pretty much whatever she wanted.

HK$ realized that in order to maintain pursuit of the Marshall estate through Anna he had to control her life with drugs. For KE, Anna provided access to C-list celebrities and secondarily as a dependent-patient she could manipulate with drugs.

When KE lost her reputation and professional standing in the July 2006 LASCERA decision, maybe she blamed Anna for taking time that should have been better spent and the beginning of KE’s resentment toward Anna.

At some point, HK$ realized he had squandered his legal career on this ungrateful, demeaning, emasculating woman who treated him no better than a kept stray dog.

Does anyone think that HK$ and KE did not despise Anna?

Lawyers are already saying that it is unlikely that Paris will serve any time because of overcrowding. And her lawyers are already pleading for community service, a lecture circuit and so on.

Daniel Smith Inquest Moved to End of May

Excellent summary.

One other thing that’s bugged me. One all the earlier videos KE seems to have long lanky hair down, past her shoulders or up - with no bands, in a bun. On the flight back from California interview/video, where her affect is so. . . inappropriately light and completely without a trace of anything like grief, she appears to have had a complete hair re-do.

I understand the makeup, but she appears to have just had her roots colored (come on, she’s 60, not a blond like that video)and the shaggy cut is perfect. So my annoying, female mind says, “who flies to California and gets their hair done when their best friend is begging her to stay because they’re so sick from whatever - flu, withdrawal, sepsis.”

It just keeps occuring to me that she, KE, KNEW when she went to California that she’d be on camera alot after that and like I would, if I knew I had wedding or party photos coming up, got herself touched up. She doesn’t even look that “good” in the funeral photos, so IMO her “do” was freshly done right before the TMZ or ET video and by the funeral time it was less freshly “done.” Female that I am, it tells me she didn’t get re “done” in the Bahamas.

This is either completely catty feminine observation or one that no self-respecting male investigator would ever think of as being relevent. As an upcoming-event-photo-op conscious female, me thinks this too is another piece of very relevent evidence of pre-knowledge of the Florida events.

Reason to believe that there may have been not one, but two sociopaths in Anna’s life.

I am beginning to believe that HK$’ motives were greed & humiliation and KE’s motives were resentment & envy of a “worthless” Anna.

” I will agree with you that he was definitely Anna’s lackey and she didn’t treat him very well. I believe he took it as long as he could, and then things happened that made him feel he’d had enough! . . . he was not going to have some man come in and ‘take it away from him’! Because, in his mind, he had ‘earned’ it and in some way, he had ‘earned’ the right to tell her what to do as well!”

I believe that HKS — as a good sociopath, was not concerned with what threatened his self-esteem. That’s not an operative concern for most sociopaths. They have none. They will go to any depth, degree, length of depravity if it affords them an improved measure of what they’re after - power (all forms) or money.

Sociopaths DO turn on things and people close to them who suddenly become threats to their survival. I believe that is exactly what ANS had become vis a vis HKS and his fears of Daniel’s inquest. I agree with another poster, ?sodpoddle, who pointed out that ANS in her excessively needy way probably confided her intend to “tell” about HKS to KE and that (exposure of HKS would lead, financially and drug-wise to KE and Wes).

IMO, ANS - despite her drugs, bipolar complications and history of misjudgements, was an overly trusting individual who wanted to believe in people. I think ANS had had it with HKS and was “in the dark” as to how much KE and HKS were in each other’s pockets.

ANS wanted a Mommy. She rejected Virgie as the “bad” mommy (even though there’s evidence she vascillated on that one, I believe KE and HKS kept the “split” going). KE exploitatively slipped into ANS’s need for a “good” maternal figure she could believe in. . . leading to a final, unfortunate and tragic misjudgement on ANS’s part.

Good insight! As posters on these threads have often observed; from the day pregnant Anna set foot in the Bahamas, she became a hostage. Totally isolated and controlled by HK$ and KE. The fatal blow was Daniel’s death - if Anna had any lucid moments - she was unable to drive, write letters, email or telephone anyone for help. She was a drugged-up prisoner with a newborn. In reality -a Manchurian candidate!

Look in the notions or fabric section for StitchWitchery. It comes in packages of 1 or 2 rolls. Not very expensive. Beware of imitators.

Try it out on a sample of your fabric. It’s easy to correct errors - not good for seams, but is terrific for hems...especially on table cloths, pants and curtains.

Washable too! (no I don’t own stock)!

Do you have an “Anna’s Linens” store? They have decent merchandise for the home. If there isn’t a store near you, check out their website:

www.annaslinens.com

I had access to their store, and purchased an overstuffed feather comforter for 39.99. Except for the cover pilling, it was an excellent deal. They just opened one up here, but I haven’t had a chance to visit yet. I saw a very cute set of kitchen tiers with roosters. Beige with sage green gingham print trim. Check it out.

I think the formality custody deal is regarding the custody with Larry not anything to do with Virgie. Larry only has temporary custody now and she knows he will be getting full in June.

I wouldn’t know about rock concerts. LOLL My mother never let me attend them. I am usually good about checking stuff like that ( and hubby leaves it up to me) BUT I had to pee reallllllllllllly bad and was concentrating on making it to the bathroom. Drank two glasses of iced tea on the way (dodo me) and then took a shortcut road to SDC where there was no convenience stores THEN a longassed line on the road in the car up to the turnoff. I also thought the cars in line wouldn’t appreciate seeing my white butt on the side of the road. Told hubby to quit even talking about it and to not hit the road bumps so hard. LOLL

Prep for the May 22 inquest:

Transcript - CNN LARRY KING LIVE - Interview With Howard K. Stern    Aired September 26, 2006 - 21:00   ET

 

For ready access.  I was looking for a brief statement that included a video clip of HKS Geraldo made last night about HKS having to stay in the Bahamas for the inquest.  It was over before it registered and I can't find anything online about it.  Did anyone else catch it?

Hubby bought me a new sewing machine for Mothers Day yesterday. I have not had one since the kids were small so I am reading the in-strukshuns. The only reason I think he got it for me is because our lawn swing’s canopy bit the dust last fall in a storm. It fell against the chain link fence and was ripped. I wanted to put a sturdier top on it - like an aluminum or cedar but he didnt want to go to that much trouble and expense. Now I am going to be a sewing fool again for the grandkids. Maybe make an outfit or two for the yorkies. LOLLL

Oh give me a break! Hubby said she wouldn’t go to jail. IMO, the ONLY way she is going to learn IS to go to jail.

Yes, we have Annas Linens. Been there before. And i just checked their website. Problem is now i’m very particular about the fabrics and most of the cafe curtains i’ve seen are either a solid color (which i don’t want) or are white/beige with roosters or strawberries on them (which i don’t want). If i weren’t so picky about this, there are some choices out there.

But someone came over a couple weeks ago to give me an estimate and an educated opinion and she said my wall color is too bright yellow for any white or off white colored curtains. I think she is right about that. You’d have to see the kitchen to understand why. It’s very nice and really needs a color with a nice floral (or stripe if push comes to shove).

Just got back from the fabric stores and they’re not open yet. Shoulda checked the phone book first!

Thanks for the help. I really appreciate all the advice you guys are offering.

Blue & white goes good with yellow—especially in french inspired kitchens.

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss.

"Does it make you sad to talk about your dad?" I'd say: "No, it makes my happy. He was just so wonderful". Now, she will understand.

You can not believe how much that helped me. My father died last year and my brother died in January. My mother is in failing health and I am not dealing with any of it very well. I will keep your words in mind. Prayers sent to you and your family.

I am so sorry for both of your losses. I wish that there was something I could say to ease your pain.
