Local WASP's battle with Anne Heche is getting ugly...

May 18, 2007 09:40 AM reports:

In court papers earlier this month in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Coley Laffoon is asking a judge for joint custody of the couple's 5-year-old son Homer, but claims that Anne's "bizarre and delusional behavior" and "poor parenting skills" could be a problem. In the papers, Laffoon claims that Anne once didn't put Homer in a car seat, she often cusses in front of the child, and packed school lunches that Homer "did not like." Laffoon added that his prior experience as a nanny and a summer camp counselor justify giving him joint custody.

I don't know why he's focused on the car seat and un-tastey lunches when he's in a custody battle with someone who wrote an autobiography called "Call Me Crazy."  That book pretty much documents her mental instability, including her battles with her alter ego, "Celestia" and her attempted rendez-vous in the desert with a space ship. Word on the street here has always been that Coley's parents were mortified that he married the deranged ex-girlfiend of one of the world's most prominent lesbians.  But, I've also been told Anne always behaved herself and was perfectly nice while in town for family functions.

But anyway, back to TMZ.  They say a rep for Heche has fired back:

It is disappointing that Coley Laffoon has resorted to filing lies with the court because Anne would not cave in to his astronomical monetary demands, including his demand for $45,000 a month in support. For the past several years, the child's father has refused to get a job in order to contribute financially to the child's care.

Ouch.  No job, Coley?


What? Forgetting the car seat, swearing in front of the kids and packing yucky lunches is, er, wrong?

Uh, oh....

I heard the craziness was just a publicity stunt. Kind of like her relationship with Ellen.

Didn't she write the call me crazy book before they got married... thus putting him on notice of the craziness?
