We got to know Anna Nicole Smith as an adult and followed the life we thought she had. Tonight at 8p on Lifetime, we will get to find out what she was like before she was Anna Nicole and she was just a little girl from Texas named Vicki Lynn Hogan.
Anna Nicole starts out when she was just a young girl and you will find out what her life was when she was growing up. Then you will see her struggle as a 20 year old mom because her own mother wouldn’t take her in after she split from her husband. Eventually she will find a job as a stripper and there she will meet a man who will take care of her. You will see how the love affair between J. Howard Marshall and Anna Nicole blossomed into her saying I do to him. It is more than we ever heard it was and you will see there really was something between them. While her love to him was just starting out, so was her career as a model and that is what led to her downfall. You will see how the one thing that she wanted more than anything, is the thing that took her beauty away from us at too young of an age.
The movie mostly focuses on her life before we knew her name, since we saw all the other stuff play out. Getting to know what she was like before she was famous, is what makes this movie to interesting. Why rewatch a movie version of the story we already know, let’s find out what we don’t know. And there is a lot you will learn about a woman named Anna Nicole.
This Lifetime movie doesn’t sugarcoat the truth, but it doesn’t exploit it either.
Agnes Bruckner stuns as the beautiful Anna Nicole Smith. Her transformation is incredible and you will be very impressed with all that she did to play the role.
The Anna Nicole story is “The Most Anticipated Motion Picture Of The Year”? Who the freak are they kidding. That movie looks like it is going straight to Skin-emax and not anywhere else. Willa Ford needs to stick Dancing with the Stars, oh wait that didn’t work out for her either.
BTW who else besides me will admit that they will wind up watching the movie when it comes out.
Willa Ford tells Norm Clarke that since she filmed the Anna Nicole Smith weird stuff has been happening to her and she has been losing sleep over it. She said, "Poltergeisty stuff like doors in my house slamming, weird stuff," I wonder if that is Anna Nicole Smith telling her that she doesn't like her doing her role.
Variety is reporting that Willa Ford will play Anna Nicole Smith in the first, of I am sure many, movies about Anna Nicole Smith. And all I have to say is I just don't see it. I know she released a few albums and she was barely on Dancing with the Stars, but a has anyone seen her act? But then again this is a movie based on Anna Nicole Smith's life.
Candy Spelling reached to Larry Birkhead through TMZ with some motherly advice. Which makes me wonder if she has a crush on him! But seriously if you read this letter, don't you wonder why she is doing this?
As the court appearance that will change your life approaches, I am stepping into my role as a celebrity- by- association to share some experiences with you.
1) The hair, Larry: Most of the time, your hair looks great, and I'm sure you spend a lot of time getting it right. Just be warned that you might look good every day for a month. But the one day you leave in a hurry and don't pay enough attention, or you get a little wild with an untested new style — photos will be taken that will haunt you forever. 2) Fans/autograph seekers: Hollywood lives in fear of being yesterday's celebrity and ending up with an autograph languishing on eBay for days with no bids. If people want many copies, if they don't want you to personalize it, and/or they ask for Anna Nicole's name as part of your signature, nicely decline. If you slip and do see your autograph on sale, have a good friend bid more than 99 cents to buy it.
3) The lawyers: You've already found out that you have turned from man to cash machine. Lawyers aren't the only ones who will see you that way, especially if you are Dannielynn's biological father. The good news is that someone who presents you with a bill for $620,492.84 must think you have a good case. The bad news is that you will need more lawyers to fight the legal bills. My advice: Negotiate in advance, and put in a clause against expenses for lawyers, spouses, meals or laundry.
I wish you success in court on Tuesday, but beware: There's never enough preparation for "celebrity." I'll never get used to tour buses and cameras outside my house every day, reporters analyzing my grocery choices, and bloggers pretending to know more about my family than I do; but I do have a good life. Yours can be, too. Just remember that celebrity and/or money mean that nothing will ever be the same — and act accordingly.
Anna Nicole Smith died from an accidental overdose of a powerful sedative that became lethal when mixed with nine other prescription drugs found in her system, according to a coroner's report released this morning. The combined toxicity of the sleeping medication, chloral hydrate, and the other drugs (including anti-anxiety Valium, Klonopin, and Ativan) resulted in the 39-year-old Smith's death, concluded Dr. Joshua Perper, the Broward County medical examiner. The medical examiner's investigation also found that "contributory causes" in Smith's death were a viral flu and an abscess that had developed on her buttock as a result of injections. Perper noted that the level of chloral hydrate–which is often used to combat insomnia and slows respiration–found in Smith's system was not, in itself, lethal. But combined with the other drugs, which were found at "therapeutic levels," the chloral hydrate proved lethal. On February 8, Smith was found dead at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Despite news accounts of Smith's abuse of an array of narcotics, toxicology tests revealed that she did not have methadone or other opiates in her system at the time of her death.
According to TMZ Larry Birkhead is no longer working with his lawyer Debra Opri. She had this to say,"Larry Birkhead and I have terminated our attorney-client relationship effective immediately." TMZ also said that the parting of ways is not really a surprise because the two of them have been butting heads since they were in Florida for the fight over Anna Nicole Smith's body. There have been a lot of rumors that Birkhead has been trying to work out a deal with Howard K Stern to get back Dannielynn and Opri tried to persuade him against it. Opri did have parting word about her working relationship with Birkhead, "My prayers will be with Larry and Dannielynn always." I just hope he can hire a lawyer that will help him get his daughter back because it just seems Opri was not doing that good of a job on that. I mean how many times can a Judge postpone a DNA test even when the person blocking it was dead?
sJust when you think that Anna Nicole Smith story can't get any weirder, Phoenix New Times prints a story you have to read to believe and even then you question it.
Forget the whole who is the father of Dannielynn? The question today is Anna Nicole Smith the mother of a four year old boy. Yes you read that right, a man is claiming that Anna Nicole had his son 4 years ago and she choose for him to raise her son. Johnny Sotto, a Native American says that he met her when she was staying in Arizona at a spa. Anna Nicole and him flirted a lot and she was curious to know what it was like to be with a guy that wasn't white, his words not mine. "At first, it was all in fun," Soto details. "She'd call my you-know-what her 'tomahawk,' her 'wooden Indian,' or 'big wampum.' Sometimes she'd ask me to do a war dance naked with this feather from one of her dresses stuck in my baseball cap. I tried to tell her that the Tohono O'odham don't wear feathers, but she didn't care. She thought it was funny, and it turned her on, so I did it, though I have no idea if our people even have a war dance." I guess all that dancing led to a lot of unprotected sex and she found herself pregnant with his kid. Because of her religious beliefs she told him she could not have an abortion and decided to give him the baby. They named the baby Marshall after her late husband. Anna Nicole supported Johnny and Marshall by sending them $10,000 a month.
Anna Nicole kept in touch with them throughout all these years and the last time he heard from her was the beginning of the year. "The last time she called in January, she didn't sound right," Soto recalls. "I knew she was again back on the drugs. Her speech was slurred, and she was saying crazy stuff about how there were rats under her bed trying to eat her feet, and that the Mafia was out to kill her for her money. Before I heard the news, I got a letter in the mail from her, written in lipstick, with a photo of her shaving Howard K. Stern's butt. I thought maybe she needed to be institutionalized. Obviously, the birth of Dannielynn and Daniel's overdose — it was just too much for her."
Now with the death of Anna Nicole he wonders if his son should be the heir to her fortune. A fortune that comes from his namesake. "Do you know how to get hold of [former Arizona attorney general and now trial lawyer] Grant Woods?" he asks, after Marshall had cried himself to sleep following a wrenching day of watching his mom's funeral. "We're not greedy, but Marshall's older than Dannielynn, and I want him to have what's rightfully his. That's one reason I decided to go public. I didn't know where else to turn. Right now the tribe is helping me, and if we win, I'll make sure they get half of whatever Marshall inherits. I want him to grow up on the reservation, to learn our language and what we call the O'odham 'himdag', the O'odham way of life. But we can't do it by ourselves. This is the white man's law, and we need someone who knows the white man's law to help." It always comes down to money with the men (minus Larry Birkhead) who were in Anna Nicole's life, so sad.
Does this story seem too weird to be true? Chances are it is a fake and the Phoenix New Times has pulled an early April Fool's on all of us! Good for them because this was a brilliant joke!
Could a technicality force a DNA test to prove who the real father of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter is? A Bahamian lawyer claims that the 6-month-old baby's birth certificate is invalid, because it was signed by the wrong party. Godfrey "Pro" Pinder told the Freeport News in an exclusive interview Sunday that although Howard K. Stern is named as the father on the certificate, attorney Dion Smith Jr. signed his name where Stern's signature should have gone. "In America, the lawyer puts his name there, but in The Bahamas either a parent, someone who witnessed the birth, the midwife, or someone who lives in the house where the baby was born must sign there." If lawyers in the case discover this, said Pinder, they can ask that a new birth certificate be drawn up, and request a DNA test to show who the father is. A hearing in the custody case is set for March 16. Both Smith's ex-boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, and Stern claim to be the baby's father. Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, also has filed for custody of the baby.
Why couldn't they have found that error earlier, it would've made life so much easier on so many people. And looks like the Bahamian is government is not a fan of Howard K Stern if they are coming forward with this now knowing what it all means.
