I hope you saved your transfer, because we’re all getting back on Kelly Rutherford’s Dramatic Custody Fight Express. Last week, a judge ordered Kelly Rutherford’s kids, Hermes and Helena, to pack their tiny rolling suitcases and return to Monaco to be with their dad, Daniel Giersch, after a visit with mommy that turned a little too Lifetime-y. Basically, H & H were supposed to go home, and Kelly didn’t want to return them. I assumed that after Grandma Giersch came to collect Kelly’s kids, Kelly went home, looked in a mirror, and asked herself “Damn, what is happening, girl?“, because, you know, that would be the reasonable thing to do.
But she didn’t do that. According to Page Six, Kelly marched right back into the courthouse and hour later and filed a federal lawsuit demanding the return of her children. And about 0.003 seconds after she did that, a judge took her lawsuit and dumped it in the trash. Apparently, Kelly’s custody problems belong in the state system, and not the federal system. You know, you’d think she would know where to file her “GIVE ME BACK MY KIDS!!!!” forms by now.
To make matters messier, Page Six says legal experts have told them that filing that lawsuit probably boned up her chances of getting her kids back. That, and hustling her Lifetime story of a child custody battle on morning television.
“By not abiding by, by constantly trumpeting whatever she thinks is being done to her in every court, using every vehicle available to her from congressional briefings to Good Morning America, she’s done herself no favors.”
Forget about this legal expert – what does Kelly’s gorgeous Tussaudian (that’s a word, right?) lawyer, Wendy Murphy, have to say about all this?!? I don’t know if I can wait all of two days till she and Kelly appear on another morning show. You’re right, I need to be patient; waiting for the booking agent to return your calls can take time.
