Anna Nicole Smith Dead at 39

What a sad end to this young woman. I always thought of her as being a really sad woman that made some not so great decisions in her life. Her life story has always been about escape. Her last days were so traumatic - with the death of her son, the birth of her daughter, the paternity suits, the autopsy on her son and inconclusive results, the Marshall family estate case. Now there is no cause of death yet (as the article below states) but the conspiracy theorist in me wonders about the timing of her death against her son's:

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Anna Nicole Smith, the curvaceous blonde whose life played out as an extraordinary tabloid tale — Playboy centerfold, jeans model, bride of an octogenarian oil tycoon, reality-show subject, tragic mother — died Thursday after collapsing at a hotel. She was 39.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and was rushed to a hospital. Edwina Johnson, chief investigator for the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office, said the cause of death was under investigation and an autopsy would be done on Friday. Just five months ago, Smith's 20-year-old son, Daniel, died suddenly in the Bahamas in what was believed to be a drug-related death.

Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger said a private nurse called 911 after finding Smith unresponsive in her sixth-floor room at the hotel, which is on an Indian reservation. He said Smith's bodyguard administered CPR, but she was declared dead at a hospital. Later Thursday, two sheriff's deputies carried out at least eight brown paper bags sealed with red evidence tape from Smith's hotel room.

Dr. Joshua Perper, the chief Broward County medical examiner who will perform the autopsy, said if her death was from natural causes, the findings would likely be announced quickly. He cautioned, however, that definitive results could take weeks.

I saw this right before I went to sleep last night. 39!!!

Here, they're saying it's a suspected drug overdose... She really did have a lot going on at the end. I remember when her son died in the hospital that she gave birth to her baby...

May her soul rest in perfect peace.

damn.. for ahile there I kinda really liked her..

I think the billionaire married her to spite his children, he had already disowned them anyway and new he was dying. I think he wanted to make thigns difficult for them, but in turn he made things difficult for her as well.

Her last years have been a lil' bit sad to watch, but then I think a lot of that might have just been her playing her 'Marilyn Monroe character' up to the cameras.

I wonder how many pain killers she was taking in order to dull the pain of losing that 20 year old son.
life sure is strange ain't it?.

In my head and around me said...

This is sad and makes you wonder if she would have done things differently if she knew that she was going to die.

It is so sad about Anna Nicole's Death. Being a nursing mother, she could have died from anything - post natal depression, heatbreak caused by the death of her son, the wranglings btw her fomer lover and current lover over the paternity of her new baby, drugs...........

May her soul rest in peace.
