A book written by former MSNBC journalist Rita Cosby claims Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead were secret gay lovers who plotted against Anna Nicole Smith.

The book, “Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith’s Death” alleges there is a tape of the two men engaged in oral sex that Smith would watch “over and over.” A source has reportedly confirmed the existence of the tape.

The book also claims that Stern always had his “goodie bag” of meds close by, including Vicodin, Valium, Morphine and Demerol, and would force the drugged up Smith to sign stacks of paperwork.

Birkhead’s image as the “aw shucks nice guy” was a ploy to manipulate the media, his former lawyer Debra Opri told Cosby.

Birkhead and reps for Stern deny the allegations in the book and have threatened to sue.

OK! Magazine pulled out of a deal to exclusively cover Dannielynn’s first birthday due to the allegations.

I have always had suspicions about Howard K. Stern’s involvement in Anna Nicole’s death. The guy kept her doped up. I am shocked that Birkhead is now being implicated as well. I’m sure we haven’t heard the end of this.
