ANNA NICOLE & HOWARD K. STERN TELL ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT THEIR 500TH EXCUSE OF WHY ANNA SHOULDN'T HAVE TO SUBMIT TO A PATERNITY TEST.
Anna Nicole Smith and "partner" Howard K. Stern will be on Entertainment Tonight Monday to talk about the latest drama with Anna Nicole refusing to submit baby Dannielynn to a paternity test. Anna and Howard tell ET:
"It's always a battle. It's always a fight," Anna says about her day-to-day struggles and allegations by LARRY BIRKHEAD that he, not Howard, is the father of her 5-month-old baby girl. Which raises the question, why not take a paternity test and get the whole thing over with?"Why should I?" she responds. "I mean, I'm going through the court systems. I'm doing what my attorneys tell me. It's crazy to me that it's gone this far for him to go to a judge and say, 'Oh, I want Anna Nicole Smith to take a paternity [test] just because [she's] Anna Nicole Smith,' and we have to do it. I'm just like any other Joe Schmoe, and I have my rights, and I'm not gonna just because of everything he's put me through." When asked if she would submit her daughter to a DNA test if asked to by the local Bahamian authorities, Anna Nicole says, "I would," but until that day comes, "it's not going to happen." "We're following the law," adds Howard. "Just because Anna's a celebrity, doesn't mean you get to go to the media and all of a sudden [we] have to do whatever you want. What people don't understand is that we've got a lot of things that are going on right now, the most important of which is that we're trying to deal with Daniel's loss. All these things, they're like distractions, but just look; Larry Birkhead saying, 'I want a paternity test' doesn't mean that Anna Nicole automatically has to give a DNA test. It just doesn't."
Hmm...okay, if they don't want Larry Birkhead involved, then how about just having Howard do a DNA test with the baby? If they did that and prove he is the father, then everyone might shut the hell up, leave them alone and they could get on with their lives and deal with the loss of Daniel. In the interview, Howard will also be asked about the tabloid accusations that he gave Daniel the methadone which contributed to his death. Even though these two will probably be lying through their teeth the entire time, it sounds like it's going to be some juicy stuff.
