Anna Nicole: Day One

I suppose it had to end like this. The soap opera of Anna Nicole Smith's life came to a sudden finale on Thursday afternoon in a Hollywood, Florida hotel room. Smith had been in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino since Monday, leaving five-month-old daughter Dannielynn behind in the Bahamas with a close friend. Anna's unconscious body was discovered by her private nurse on Thursday afternoon. Her bodyguard and local paramedics attempted CPR, and she was rushed to the hospital, but she died before she arrived. Her body was covered by the time the ambulance arrived at the ER.

The autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow. One of Anna Nicole's lawyers states that she had not "been well the past few days, she's had cold and flu symptoms." Which is, as I recall, what they said about her son in the days before his sudden death last September (Daniel Smith died of a drug overdose). I suppose we'll have more details by tomorrow, and hopefully now this mystery will unfold over time. Anna had always idolized Marilyn Monroe, who died of a barbiturate overdose at the age of 36, and her death was ruled a probable suicide. Anna was 39.

It is this blogger's opinion that we'll learn Anna met the same fate as Marilyn (and, incidentally, as her son). Whether the death was accidental or a suicide may never be known, but my guess is she had some idea what she was getting herself into as she was taking the pills, and probably had more than one thought of Marilyn. Following Anna's recent life, for me as a gossip blogger, has been exhausting, confusing, maddening, depressing and overwhelming, so I can only imagine what she went through actually living it. While her death means the exact opposite for members of the media, at least Anna Nicole will have some peace now. This is probably what she wanted -- to die young, beautiful and shrouded in mystery, just like her idol.

As with the death of Marilyn, Anna's death has already prompted a string of conspiracy theories (although Anna's don't yet involve a U.S. President). With Anna and her son Daniel dead, who stands to inherit the gazillions of dollars Anna's been trying to get from her late husband? Her lawyer and boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, has spent the better part of his legal career fighting for that money. Anna's mother told Nancy Grace on CNN in October: "If Howard Stern marries her and she ends up dead, then who does the money go [to]? Danny's not there." Well, I'm not a lawyer, but doesn't she still have that daughter of dubious paternity and name-spelling, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern? Regardless, it hasn't stopped folks from speculating that Howard K. Stern was maliciously involved somehow. Personally, I doubt this, but feel free to run with it (you know Law & Order will). While Stern is currently the legal guardian of the child, Larry Birkhead (who has been claiming since Dannielynn's birth that he is the father), and every U.S. camera crew not yet dispatched to Florida, will be at an L.A. court tomorrow for an emergency hearing on the paternity testing. No word yet on whether Howard K. Stern will be present -- no one's can seem to pin down his exact whereabouts.

We'll keep you posted on the details of this tragic story as they unfold.

It's very obvious to me that Howard K. Stern killed Anna and her son. Howard K. Stern was seen tapering with Daniel's pills shortly before he died. Anna's own mother said that she was sure that Howard K. Stern killed Daniel, and she warned Anna to stay away from Stern. I hope they throw Stern in the same cell with Scott Peterson.

I am sickened and enraged how her son and then she can be killed for her money. Her beloved son, and heir to her millions, died in very suspicious circumstances in September. Howard K. Stern, her creepy jewish lawyer boyfriend, arranged his own marriage to Nicole two weeks later. In the middle of October Nicole's mother went on CNN to say she blamed Stern for her grandson's death and warned her daughter she might be next:

Anna reacted angrily:
I know how she is thinking there completely. I had a jewish friend who turned against my family, the people who actually cared for me.

I saw this on the news. Poor white girl was surrounded by jews - lawyers, make up artists, porn barons, all the people she trusted. Hustled away and killed for her money. It was no more a sophisticated crime as that - killed for her money like a cheap street robbery. You can take the jew out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the jew. Stay away from the ghetto.
