    Ms. Southwick would do well to invest in a support garment for The Girls.

    Mr. Marshall is saying, “Damn right it’s worth a billion dollars. You think I’m leaving all this money to my no-account kids?”

  2. Elvira Says:

    Larry King has always skeeved me out, and this doesn’t help. Ewww.

  3. Elvira Says:

    Posted too soon. . . However, the other gentleman looks harmlessly happy, as well he should have been. Did that inheritance lawsuit ever get resolved?

  4. La Retrosessuale Says:

    Ha ha ha! Plautus. The Manolo, he is the imperator of the funnyhahas and his blog is the Satyricon of the modern era.

    FYI, J. Howard Marshall used to be the Assistant Dean of Shangri Law, aka, Yale Law School. Would that he had brought Anna Nicole to the Yale Law Community Picnic.

  5. La Retrosessuale Says:

    In answer to Elvira, that inheritance law suit is heading to the Supreme Court. It received certification in the fall of last year. La Retrosessuale she cannot wait for the Court TV dramatic re-enactments a la the Michael Jackson trial!

    Who will play the Anna Nicole? Perhaps the Melanie Griffith.

  6. Amy Says:

    The good news is that if Mrs. King stands up straight she won’t have to see her special little man. I am reminded of Petronius in that one good turn deserves another.

  7. kim Says:

    I hear that Mrs. King came to the marriage with her own money and property and plenty of it. It has been bandied about that Larry is quite a stallion…

  8. Susanna Says:

    I have heard what Kim has heard about Mrs. Larry King the Fifth or Sixth or whatever number she is. And also I have heard the frightening information about Mr. King’s “skills.”


  9. Amy Says:

    Dear Kim,

    Perhaps that’s what the suspenders are all about.

  10. Wickwire Says:

    AAaargh, I DIDN’T want to read anything like that about L. King. Pardon me while I go…vomit.

  11. Esther Says:

    Man, now I’ve lost my appetite.

  12. Fausta Says:

    The Manolo, like the Hans Gruber, has the benefits of the classical education.
    Luckily for his admirers, The Manolo, he is witty, funny, and a blogger!

  13. dimestore lipstick Says:

    Something familiar…something peculiar…

  14. the urban chick Says:

    the ed driscoll, he has beaten the urban chick to it

    although, in the fairness, i was thinking the larry king was only the character in the countless movies on the fictional TV station called the CNN
