G'bye, Anna Nicole

Anna Nicole Smith (nee Vickie Lynn Hogan), Guess model, MTV reality show star, former Playboy bunny, and widow of billionaire nonagenarian J. Howard Marshall II, was found dead early this afternoon after collapsing at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida, at the age of 39. Her death follows the recent death of her son, Danny, from a drug overdose and the death of her stepson E. Pierce Marshall (who fought Smith to keep her from inheriting @ $450 million dollars). According to a source deemed credible by Access Hollywood, a Hard Rock employee discovered Anna Nicole in her hotel room, removed the sheet, and found that she appeared to have become asphyxiated in her own regurgitation. CBS sources added that officers found unlawful narcotics and prescription drugs in the room. Police state that the cause of death is unknown. Smith leaves Dannielynn, a five-month old daughter, whose patriarchal lineage is yet unknown. Photog and former lover Larry Birkhead claims to be the father of the child, and Howard K. Stern, Smith's last boyfriend and attorney, alleges paternity.

tragic life, eh?

With that much money at stake, one can never rule out foul play.   Someone needs to step up and take care of that little one.

Very tragic. However, she probably left the way the envisioned (akin to her idol Marilyn).

Poor little girl! I fear that too many will want to be her "family." Three men, including Zsa Zsa Gabor's hubby, are claiming potential paternity. According to FNC, Anna Nicole's sister says that J. Howard Marshall II may be the father through artificial insemination from his saved sperm as a way to gain the entire inheritance.

So, let's do a paternity test.  Why do we have to make this anymore complicated than it really is?

A paternity test would be nice but that are legal hoops to go through that may require years of litigation.
