As if you really missed us ... here's some Las Vegas news and more Anna Nicole Smith stuff
It seems there was a whole raft of celebs in Lost Wages while we were there, according to Vegas Confidential: be-wigged Britney Spears dined at Nobu in the Hard Rock on Monday, Jamie-Lynn Sigler spent the Sunday night premiere of The Sopranos at Love, Brad Garrett walked some contest winner down the aisle at the Little White Wedding Chapel on Saturday, Xzibit was chowing down at N9NE steakhouse at the Palms three nights straight and Michelle Rodriguez was at Forty Deuce at Mandalay Bay.
Unfortunately, while we stopped in at Tabu, Tryst and Pure, the best we could do was spying Carrot Top at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris on Sunday night. Yay us.
Anywho, the real story happened while we were out. This whole “Larry Birkhead is Dannielynn’s daddy” thing makes us tired. Pretending he thinks of the child as more than a bouncing baby claim on a multimillion-dollar inheritance, Birkhead visited the kid a few hours after Tuesday’s announcement, Entertainment Tonight says. He and some relatives fed the tot apple sauce and changed her diaper, just so Larry can get a taste of what he’s getting into.
No surprise, then, that the AP reports today he said he has no plans to share legal custody, no doubt incensing Anna Nicole Smith’s mama, Virgie Arthur. “It would imply that I’m unfit as a parent, which I’m not,” the L.A. photographer said on the Today show. “I’m looking forward to giving Dannielynn everything that she needs and all the love and support.”
That doesn’t mean the grandma can’t visit, though. “... I have no problem with anyone that has good intentions being allowed to visit the baby and see the baby and be a part of the baby’s life,” Birkhead said. That no doubt includes all those lawyers who will put Birkhead in charge of any trust the possible heir to the J. Howard Marshall II fortune may be assigned. [Photo: AP]
