Anna Nicole Smith Exits Stage Left


The practice of "marrying up" is as old as time and remains pretty common. When you're Anna Nicole Smith, marrying up isn't just an act; it's a full-blown profession.

Yesterday 39-year-old Anna Nicole Smith collapsed at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL and was pronounced dead some time later. This is just months shy of the death of her oldest son and smack in the middle of a series of mysteries, including the paternity of her newborn daughter, the ongoing inheritance lawsuit over her ex-husband's fortune, and some sort of trouble with TRIMSPA.

The former Playboy bunny first garnered attention when at 26 she married 89-year-old Texas oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall. Later she experienced a brief running spotlight with The Anna Nicole Show, a reality program showcasing a wider version of the ex-stripper. She most recently fed the tabloid tikis with her controversial marriage to her lawyer and significant weight loss following the TRIMSPA campaign.

For someone so often laughed at and belittled the woman knew how to self-promote and play up her crowd. It's not every girl that can go from stripper to marketing powerhouse - that takes some brains. For that we salute you, Anna Nicole.

TACKY headline for this kind of story. VERY tacky.

I can't imagine why you'd want to salute a woman who can't even speak in complete sentences. It's embarassing. I say good riddance! One less moronic gold digger walking the streets.

I don't even follow these people stories, nor do I know much about about the woman. From the headlines in my yahoo mail box it looks like she was desperately looking for love. How she showed that, you either agree or don't. A new baby, three men claiming rights to that baby, prescription drugs, etc.

Does this mean Elton John’s gonna change that fucking song yet again?

just an Offtopic sideline question-- not to detract from Black History, but to promote color diversity and raise the question of color perception.

But do your initials stand for

as in the new shuffle colors. Sorry, I have been doing Emerald Nut acrostics too long from last year when I last left my cave, and I still dont know who had the winning entry or even what it was. If I did, I am betting Robert Goulet stole it from my computer, anyway. Acrostic recognition, yea...Obviously, this has spread over to every dang thing I read and write, speak and spell, see and say. The cow says: mOOO.

That was a typo, I meant to say OH NOOOOO!

Oh, and I really do think vowel diversity is gonna swing in full force this political season, especially in OhiO.

Obama is lucky as he has the O! which is the new i. Vowel diversity! Well, he has the i, too if he hooks indiana, illinois, and iowa in a string. Quadruple A one ups triple A in a road trip, and that's all he is missing is U,U,U. Hey, Blues Brothers, Chicago. Talk about a lucky letter guy.

Five elements:that's japanese.
Five races when we include little green aliens.
Five vowels.

Five golden rings.

We can get back on topic to Elton John now.

Actually, the only shuffles I've seen in agencies are white, but thanks for asking.

Posted by: makethelogobigger on February 11, 2007 4:00 PM

I'm white, aged and ncy. No shuffle. So there are always exceptions.

You really think that she was behind all of her own marketing? If you do, then you know nothing of the system. She just went with what everybody was giving her. She had so many handlers it was rediculous. I hope that gold digging bitch's estate remains in limbo forever like the money she was trying to swindle from an 89 year old man. She even stole houses. This bitch had no remorse or feeling for anyone around her. If you dated her and let her stay in your place, guess what, in her mind you gave it to her. what a pitiful butch and what pitful assholes who hang out with her and find that the only way they can make a living is by suing anyone involved. I hope Zsa Zsa's husband gets the kid, because Howard is only going to use the kid to try and get more money. Just Pitiful!
