Short Bits

Larry Birkhead can leave with the Bahamas with daughter, Dannielynn this weekend. Virgie Arthur's last-ditch appeal to block Dannielynn's biological father from leaving the Bahamas with the infant has just been denied. And to add insult to injury, the judge verbally and financially smacked Arthur, calling the appeal "weak" and ordering her to pay $3,000 in attorney's fees for wasting the court's time. At one point, the judge reportedly said that he was "perplexed" as to why the case even made it into his courtroom.


Richard Gere is not worried that a warrant's out for his arrest in India, and he's accusing a "very small right-wing, very conservative" faction in the country for coming after him for his public kissing of an Indian actress. On The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on last night Richard said, "They do this kind of thing quite often. I don't know that anyone has actually gone to jail ... It goes to a reputable court and they throw it out." Yesterday, an Indian judge issued a warrant for Gere's arrest in Jaipur, saying that he had "transgressed all limits of vulgarity" when he smooched Shilpa Shetty at an AIDS benefit.
