Howard K. Stern Gets Green Light To Sue Author of Anna Nicole Tell-All

Remember when journalist Rita Cosby’s tell-all, Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith‘s Death, hit shelves only two months after the buxom blonde’s death? Cosby alleged that Howard K. Stern, Smith’s former paramour, had an intimate affair with Larry Birkhead, Smith’s ex. Yesterday, a judge ruled that Stern could move forward with a defamation lawsuit. However, only 11 out of the 19 libelous statements made by Cosby hold weight, ruled Judge Denny Chin. The judge said the references to alleged homosexuality were not inherently defamatory: “I respectfully disagree that the existence of this continued prejudice leads to the conclusion that there is a widespread view of gays and lesbians as contemptible and disgraceful.” [E!
