An attorney representing former Playboy Playmate and reality television star Anna Nicole Smith said Tuesday he is the father of her daughter, born earlier this month in the Bahamas. Howard K. Stern added that he plans to marry Smith. "Anna and I have been in a relationship and we love each other, and it's been going on for a very long time, and because of my relationship as her lawyer, we felt that it was best to keep everything hidden," Howard K. Stern told CNN's "Larry King Live" ... Stern said he and Smith are confident he is the father, and "based on when the timing of when the baby was born, there really is no doubt in either of our minds." Entertainment reporter and photographer Larry Birkhead also claims to be the father of the girl, named Danilynne Hope. In a statement, Birkhead said Smith told him he is the child's father, and that he has proof. He said he accompanied Smith to doctors' appointments until a "minor disagreement" took place while she was pregnant. He suggested a DNA test be conducted to determine the child's paternity. He also made similar comments to "Entertainment Tonight." In response to Birkhead, Stern said, "I think, first, you have to look at what his motives are. If he honestly believed he was the father, based on when the baby was born, he should have handled it appropriately ... handle it through the proper channels, not through television and through the media." Birkhead also has sent "a slew" of e-mails to Smith, Stern said, calling it "just completely inappropriate." !!!!!! This lawyer is talking about impropriety?! LOLOLOLOLOL! See ... I never trusted this guy ... watching him on the Anna Nicole Smith Show on E! a couple of years ago ... I knew he was up to something. Anna Nicole became prime shark bait as soon as her rich husband died and I knew it would be just a matter of time before her lawyer sunk his teeth into her. So gross! [Source]
I doubt he's lying about being the father ... it would be absolutely foolish for him to do so on national TV. Here is a picture from the most recent issue of In Touch Weekly magazine of the "happy family":
Is it wrong that I really believe this whole baby thing has everything to do with money? Call me jaded, but it just reeks of a scam. I suppose it's possible that they're in love ... but I somehow doubt it. Click HERE to watch the video of the revelation. Click HERE to read the transcript of the interview. [Source, thanks Monica]
In other news, it turns out that Paris Hilton is not going to be allowed to skate by with her latest run-in with the police. The LA City Attorney is pressing misdemeanor DUI charges against the flamboyant heiress:

The Los Angeles City Attorney filed misdemeanor charges Tuesday in connection with Hilton's arrest earlier this month. The heiress, who was driving her pricey Mercedes McLaren SLR, was pulled over in Hollywood after police spotted her driving erratically. Cops administered a field sobriety test, and Paris blew a .08. In California, driving with a .08 blood alcohol level is the minimum level for DUI. TMZ has obtained the criminal complaint filed against Hilton today in Los Angeles court. Hilton was charged with driving under the influence and driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher. The charges carry a maximum jail term of six months, however, it is standard practice to give first offenders probation, as well as a license restriction. Typically, first offenders are also required to attend AA meetings. I can just see it now ... hoards of paparazzi following Paris Hilton to her AA meetings as she's flanked by her posse (lead by either Nicky Hilton or Brandon Davis) who will attend the meetings with her as a show of support ... and who knows, if she sticks with the program one of her sobriety chips may end up on eBay -- bedazzled, of course. I smell a reality TV show prospect here. [Source]
Meanwhile, as Paris was bizzy getting charged with crimes in LA, she herself has been spending time in Germany dressing as a hooker milk maid as she promotes Rich Prosecco (whatever the hell that is) in Munich:
If anything, she should be locked up for crimes against fashion. Maybe this brush with the law and its inevitable consequences will teach Miss Hilton a sense of responsibility and will give her a moral code. Yeah ... or not. [Source]
Incidentally, Pink reader Jami reveals that Paris was spotted with Travis Baker in Munich at his new band +44's show. Interesting.
The Victoria Beckham robot went out for some shopping in Rome this week ... she must've gotten her wires crossed because she inadvertently went out dressed in hubby David Beckham's clothing:
I wonder if Becks minds that his wife likes to wear his clothes. I wonder if Becks likes to wear her clothes as well. Now that's an interesting prospect. Anyways, I'm sure Becksie doesn't mind that she wears his clothes ... now, if she were to borrow his eyelash curler or his eyebrow tweezers I bet he'd be fuming mad. [Source]
Here are a few more photos of Pete Doherty and Kate Moss' reunion earlier this week ... because I have this thing for young love ... here are some photos of the lovebirds swapping spit:
Hey, it's better than sharing needles ... and only slightly more sanitary. [Source]
Check out these adorable pictures from Lyric Angel's first birthday party. Mommy Tiffani posted these pictures on her My Space profile ... it looks like little Lyric is all set to grow up to be just like his daddy Ashley Parker Angel:
Seriously, this kid is sooooo cute. With a name like Lyric, he just has to grow up and be a musician ... right ... either that he'll just grow up to be resentful. Happy Birthday, Lyric! [Source]
Q magazine is celebrating their 20th anniversary and they are releasing 20 different magazine covers for readers to collect (Britney Spears is among the cover models). Here is what the Madonna cover will look like:
Q is known to do stuff like this ... but 20 different covers is nutso! I doubt that anyone will collect all 20 but who the hell knows. Congrats to Q for making it 20 long years in the magazine biz. I think I'm going to have to seek out the Britney cover issue. [Source]
My new fave band The Oohlas had their CD release party at Cinespace last night but before I get to that subject, here is a picture of the band from the new issue of Nylon magazine:

I know I haven't posted any reader pics recently since I was away but I'll do my best to get back into the habit of posting some pics occasionally. Here are pictures of Pink readers Deanna on the first day of school this year (ULS in the hizzy!) -- Tront, who celebrated his birthday with a cake from his friends (you can see his party pics HERE) -- and Sara and her friends Jen, the Heathers and Keira celebrating Sara's big 3-0:

Ollie kinda wanted me to go on stage to announce the band ... and I immediately wanted to puke onto the floor -- I'm not good on stages in front of people. But Ollie's dress was so cute that I couldn't heave my lunch onto her so I swallowed hard and agreed to do the intro. Blah! After that unpleasantness was finished, the band took the stage and rocked out! Adriana, Jon and Jeff joined us for the show but only Adriana hung with Jim and me to the end ... which is why it was also difficult to wake up this morn.
I have to say hey to the amazing Pink readers that I met last night ... much love goes out to Nikki, Sarah, Megan, Britney and Sophie (who gave me an amazing customized t). It was great meeting you all :)
I have lots of settling to do ... my once immaculate apartment is in shambles with remnants of my NYC/Parisian holiday strewn all over the place ... I need to go take care of that today before my head explodes.
Have a great Wednesday, ya'll! I'm out.
PS: The Cobra Snake's chicks are really creepy in person ... but the man does take great pictures.
