Take this with a grain of salt as big as Jason Davis.
But the latest celebrity gossip rumor is based around a new tell-all about Anna Nicole Smith from former MSNBC journalist Rita Cosby. It alleges - make sure you're sitting down for this - that Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead were secret gay lovers.
The book, "Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death" describes a brief tryst between Stern and Birkhead. Jackie Hatten, described as a friend of Anna Nicole's, claims she found Stern and Birkhead with shirts off and pants around their ankles, engaged in the Antonella Barba special.
That's not all: the tome also accuses the feuding men of cutting a deal between them in which Birkhead would get custody of Dannielynn in return for Stern being named executor of Anna Nicoles estate.
Both Birkhead and Stern deny all of Cosby's accusations. The former said that he was disgusted by Cosby's assertions and "if she printed that then she is really getting sued," he said.
Stern's lawyer called the book "false and defamatory."
