The actress had defied an agreement to fly them back to their father last Friday, to which the legal system appears to have responded swiftly.
Kelly Rutherford has been ordered to return her children to their father immediately by an irate judge in New York, after she failed to fly them back to Monaco last week as previously agreed.
TMZ reported that the former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress appeared in court in New York on Tuesday (August 11th) after she had decided to keep her two children, Hermes (8) and Helena (6), in America last Friday, thus breaking an agreement to return them to her ex-husband Daniel Giersch after they had spent three months this summer with Rutherford in the States.

Rutherford was supposed to have flown to Monaco with her children to return them to their father on Friday (August 7th).
Kelly Rutherford has spoken out on her decision to refuse to let her two children fly back to Monaco to their father, deciding to keep them in the US and calling on him to “do the right thing” and “protect the children from the trauma of needless litigation.”
For over three years, Rutherford has been locked in a bitter custodial dispute with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch over their two young children – Hermes (8) and Helena (6). They have been spending the summer in New York with their mother, but she was supposed to have accompanied them back to Monaco and their father on Friday (August 7th).

The former 'Gossip Girl' actress has been fighting for her children's custody for nearly six years, but a California court has ruled that it doesn't have jurisdiction in the matter.
Kelly Rutherford has been dealt another blow in her ongoing struggle to gain full custody of her children, with a Californian court ruling that it has no jurisdiction over the case.
In court documents obtained by People, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Juhas reached the verdict on Thursday (July 23rd) that the former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress can no longer fight the case in the state of California.
Rutherford, 46, and her ex-husband Daniel Giersch have been locked in a bitter custody battle for the last six years over their two children, Hermes (8) and Helena (6). They are currently spending the summer in the US with Rutherford after a court in Monaco (where Giersch now resides) granted shared custody earlier this year.
The actress has been fighting a three year long legal battle to bring her son and daughter home.

A judge in California ruled that Kelly’s son Hermes, 8, and daughter Helena, 6, must be brought back to the United States from Monaco, where they have been living with father Daniel Giersch since 2012.

Sure, you're probably saying that worse movies about Salem witch trial-era fungi that resurface 300 years later, are turned into experimental medicine by researchers for use as brain medicing, and then slowly turn the subjects into violent madmen have been made. And if there were any other movies about evil witch spores, you'd probably be right. But as it stands, Risk falls into every common pitfall of low-grade horror movies: a nonsensical setup, no rationale or explanation for the plot, a series of "mysterious" events designed solely to scare you, and a relatively pat ending.
