ANNA9smith190_1.jpgThe press has been full of the death of Anna Nicole Smith. 

Her claim to fame of course was that in 1994, when she was a mere 26, she married an 89-year-old billionaire, J Howard Marshall. Naturally it was love at first sight – of his wallet. I’m sure he got what he wanted from the deal as well – she was a very attractive looking young woman back then.

I think her story is a tragic one – she pursued wealth, found it; she wanted fame, got it in buckets; and she ends up being found dying, on her own, in a Florida hotel. Apparently she modelled herself on Marilyn Monroe – now she shares the same fate. I feel sorry for her family – the media may have lost a "reality TV" star that they could label "trailer trash" but her FAMILY have lost a daughter, a sister, a mother. Fame does not ensure happiness.  I think that India Knight’s article here on Anna is well worth a read – I think it is VERY wrong the way the media treated her. Rest in peace.

    Quite. People who were under the impression that the naive and not particularly educated Anna Nicole Smith was the one doing the exploiting in that relationship, tend to ignore the fact that self made billionaires are not easily bamboozled. Both parties got what they wanted.

  2. >>I’m sure he got what he wanted from the deal<<

    How on earth can an 89-year-old wheelchair-bound man get what he wants from such a 26-yr-old sex bomb?

    LOL…He was only interested in her mind…..

    You really do have much to learn.

  4. Maybe with a bit more experience of life, Ernest, you will realise that old men aren’t only, or even primarily, interested in a woman’s mind! 🙂

  5. Cunningham,

    It was you who asked the question in the first place, showing your obvious ignorance of the subject.

    I replied with a little humour, which seems to have pased way over your head.

    As a fully fledged and certificated ‘old man’, I can assure you, you know nothing about old men’s likes and dislikes.

    One of which is a total dislike and disdain of patronising, opiniated little twits like yourself…

  6. >>It was you who asked the question in the first place,<<

    Where? Never heard of rhetorics?

    >>I replied with a little humour, which seems to have pased way over your head.<<

    On the contrary! Your feeble attempt was quite transparent, so I replied in kind to provoke you. Which you of course immediately fell for!

    So – blind and dumb.

    Now, how’s your hearing?

  7. In the end it is what we leave behind when we die that counts.
    Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said that a man should do four things befor he dies: build a house, sire a son, plant a tree and write a book.
    The old billionaire did one of those, but I bet he was too fond of his treasures on earth to chance his money on anything else for prosterity.
    But the media may have chosen to ignore his good works.
    Who knows, or cares these days.

  8. DV

    This is just typical of the media feeding frenzy that surrounds a celebrity death, especially one at such a young age

  9. No tragedy really for her. She got what she wanted. He was a daft old fool who id doubt got anything out of it except a shot at not being quite so lonely and a trophy bride. And now the cycle repeats with all those male tarts seeking their forture pretending to care about the kids welfare. Imagine finding out your daddy only stuck his head above the parapet when there was cash to be made from doing so. Niiiice as Borat would say.

  10. The family angle is a little disconcerting. Her sister who she hadn’t seen in ten years was coming out with a expose book before she died. Her mother was so worried about her health that she asked her to stop taking drugs – by appearing on a tv show and speaking to the camera. The child who was just born now has a chance (though I doubt it) at a normal life (had Smith not been a celebrity the baby would have already been taken from her as an unfit mother. A stupid wasted life.

    As for the media, they managed to give more attention to this than they did to issues of war, politics, natural disasters etc. But is it the media’s fault if this is what the public wants to see? It is a car wreck of a story, too ugly to turn one’s head away from.
