Larry Birkhead with Dannielynn

Larry Birkhead, the rich father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter has hit back at reports connecting the tot’s eye disorder to medications her late mother may have taken while she was pregnant. Baby Dannielynn has been forced to wear an eye patch and take medication to correct strabismus, which is slowly turning her cross-eyed. But her father, Larry Birkhead, insists tabloid reports linking the disorder to Smith’s drug use are far-fetched. In an exclusive interview with U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight (ET Again? Could there be a deal?) which will air tonight, Birkhead says, "All of the opinions that I had (from doctors), every one of them said that it’s very, very unlikely, because no one knows 100 per cent what causes this."I point-blank ask every single doctor, ‘Could any medications that Anna was on have caused this?’ and they said that it’s more likely that a genetic reason could have caused it." Once again a Entertainment Tonight Exclusive. Wonder why ?

You bet he made a deal with the devil. Actually 2 deals with 2 devils. One being ET and the other being that evil money grubbing devil Howard K Stern.
Larry Dickhead is doing the same thing to Dannielynn's grandma as was done to him by Stern and Anna. How does the guy sleep at night?
Pure evil.

How does anyone involved with this case live with themselves ? I never saw anything like it in all my years in this business !

I would say the odds drug caused this is greater than genetics causing it.
Maybe Larry is just protecting Howard again.
Also, I don't think her eyes were slowely turning in, they have been that way.

I wonder if ET is going to film the private 1 year anniversary.
My guess is YES. Sure Anna talked to him in his dream about doing something big for the anniversary.
I'm sure if Anna ever talked to Larry, that would be at the bottom of her talking points with him..

What a Joke this guy is.

FYI on the drugs:

5460. Until recently, heroin was considered the major villain. As
more and more young female addicts have been enrolled in methadone
maintenance programs, however, doctors have discovered a grim paradox:
methadone is preferable for the adolescent or adult for a number of
reasons—in eluding the fact that it does not normally produce the
euphoria of heroin—but for the infant it seems to be even more
dangerous than heroin.

Methadone, which easily crosses the
placental barrier, may impede the fetus's normal development. More than
50% of all children born of methadone mothers are either premature or
small for their gestational age. The same is true of the heroin baby,
but most mothers on heroin receive minimal prenatal care and often have
poor eating habits. By contrast, the methadone mother in a registered
maintenance program is usually referred to a doctor for prenatal care.
Although physicians cannot yet prove it, some suspect that the
underdevelopment and prematurity of the methadone baby is a direct
result of the drug. Dr. Carl Zelson, professor of pediatrics at New
York Medical College, has performed laboratory studies that indicate
definite retardation of cell growth in some methadone babies. He has
also found that there is a high incidence of convulsive seizures in
methadone babies, resulting in possible brain damage.,9171,903723-1,00.html

Hi, James. Not me! Just sharing from someone else's research; my cut and paste.

What LB has had to say could easily be disputed.

What do you think of Larry having the dream that Anna was $demanding$ a celebration for her one year death? Of course it'll be private, until ET airs it!!!

Do you notice they hardly ever mention Daniel? They grip about yellow flowers and say Anna liked pink.

They forget that the yellow is for Anna and Daniel. Maybe next time Virgie can place yellow and pink.

Of course ET will air the party and do promos that ET has the world exclusive etc. Larry is earning his money !

I lost respect for E. T. long ago. It used to seem that they were really interested in getting indepth celebrity interviews now it's all trash and informants giving them their information. I was done with the show when they put Donny Osmond as a reporter when his sis Marie was on DWTS.

Its a shame....they used to be a good show..... its been ruined.... Believe me, the things I hear about that show while Im hanging out with my media friends....Very sad, but all the Entertainment shows that used to be mom and pop operations that sold their show for syndication have been taken over by the networks. The networks now control it all..

As far as I know, everyone is fine....

Wonder if Birkhead gets more money when he tears up for the ET cameras. Does this guy not have a a conscience? he also was an enabler of the drugs in anna's life. Baha

I thought the same thing when I heard he was planning a "celebration" to commemorate Anna's many cameras will be invited? There's not even any pretense with this guy--he flat out cares more about his 15 minutes than he does about Dannielynn.
