Yes, it's hardly news anymore. Anna *&%$# Nicole Smith is gone. It was extremely shocking. As much as critics loved to hate her... I hate to say, I really love her .
She's such an amazing story, more so than any American Idol. From a Texan topless dancer, to marrying young at 16, and having a baby before she turned 20. She skyrocketed to stardom as a Playboy centerfold and got the honorary status of "Playmate of The Year" in 1992.
But probably her greatest achievement was landing a modeling contract with Guess? jeans... and well, marrying 89-year old oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall. She was 26. The next year he died and she's been in and out of court for the litigation between her and members of the husband's family over his large estate. Bad things started to happen to bossoming Anna, rehab, depression, problems with her implants and then more bad news surfaced last year as her son died of drug overdose in Sept 2006.
Poor Anna. It was a guilty pleasure to hear news about her. When it comes to her, every news is bad news. Like her topless activities at the MTV awards and her infamous slurring... So she will be greatly missed. I always thought she'd grow old, into this plastic surgery mess... continuing to make headlines and well, keeping the peroxide business thriving till 2036...
Her cause of death is unknown. No drugs were found in her stomach... No obvious signs of foul play. No alcohol... nothing. You know what I think? I think her boyfriend, Howard K Stern, conspired to kill her. Think about it, the police found an overwhelming amount of prescriptive drugs in Howard's name. Her boyfriend also supplied Daniel Smith (Anna's son) with methadone, the very thing that killed him. He had enough to kill himself and more! Reports had it that he flushed the extra methadone into the toilet following the incident (you mean there's more? what did he want to do, kill an elephant?).
With all the paternal tussle for Daniellyn Hope, Anna's baby, it made sense to me that Howard K Stern wanted to end all of this by taking Anna's life, so nobody knows who actually is the father? And therefore has the right to father the millions in inheritance?
Jackie Hatten, Anna's friend of 16 years said Howard was the controller of Anna's life and his life, money and new found status was all achieved on Anna's back, on CNN's Larry King Live. She even mentioned that he constantly had her so drugged up with a long list of drugs and prescriptions, that she's constantly in immobilized in bed. Rosie O Donnel also spoke up about how Anna's tumultous recent stories has been milked, especially after the death of her son in Sept, with great push by Howard. It seems if he wasn't the person feeding Anna with drugs or whatever killed her, he DROVE her there.
The world is saddened that her great (mis)adventure has come to a premature end... just like her idol, Marilyn Monroe. Goodbye Anna. You will be sorely missed. If indeed there was a foul play, I hope justice will be served to whoever robbed us of such irreverent and big busted blonde goddess. No she's not smart, she never finished high school, her literature knowledge probably spanned to books that didn't use any aphabets past 'm' nor was she a genius in the kitchen like Martha Stewart, No No No... she was just a southern girl with a great story to tell.
Here's a tribute to one of your best pictures... and you may not hear this very often but you are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.
