Anna Nicole Smith Her Life and Tragic Death

Anna Nicole Smith was a bigger than life celebrity. Anna Nicole Smith's life and her tragic death.

Anna Nicole Smith was born November 28, 1967 in Harris County, TX under the name Vickie Lynn Hogan later her last named changed to Hart when her mother remarried. She is best known as a Playboy model and actress with a quirky personality. Her early childhood was poor and she would later rise to riches on her looks. In her early career she worked at Jim’s Crispy Fried Chicken, Red Lobster and Wal-Mart before becoming a stripper in 1991 at Gigi’s in Houston, TX where she met oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall.

Her first marriage was to Billy Wayne Smith on April 4, 1985 and she gave birth to her most beloved son Daniel Wayne Smith on January 22, 1986. They would later divorce and after a 2 year courtship she married Marshall on June 27, 1994 when she was 26 and he was 89 sparking a flurry of innuendoes that Anna was a gold digger. Marshall died August 4, 1995 leading to a series of court battles with Marshall’s son over his estate that went on for a decade.

Anna was chosen my Hugh Hefner to appear on the cover of Playboy in 1992 and she was chosen as Playmate of the Year in 1993. Although Anna was larger than most Playboy models at 5’10” measurements of 39DD-27-39 (implants), she was one of the most popular. Later she modeled for Guess and Layne Bryant. She was constantly a running joke for late night TV and was always to be seen in the tabloids. Her life and death were nothing if not controversial.

She appeared in several films, some she directed herself, including The Hudsucker Proxy, Naked Gun 33 1/3, The Final Insult, Wasabi Tuna and Be Cool. She went on to have her own reality show The Anna Nicole Show which had a short run but was popular. People always wanted to see what Anna was going to say or do next in her quirkiness. Anna totally idolized Marilyn Monroe and it’s ironic how her death seemed to mirror Monroe’s. After shooting up to a size 18 she became a spokesperson for Trim Spa where she lost an amazing 69 lbs. She also campaigned against PETA, Iams, Proctor & Gamble and Eukanuba for cruelty to animals.

On September 7, 2006 her daughter Danielynn Hope Marshall Stern was born. In an unfortunate twist of fate her son Daniel died in her hospital room from a drug overdose of a combination of Zoloft, Lexapro and Methadone on September 10, 2006. Howard K. Stern, Anna’s lawyer and lover stated that Anna was devastated by Daniel’s death and never did recover. On September 28, 2006 Anna and Howard married unofficially in the Bahamas. Stern maintained that he was the father of Danielynn; however DNA tests would later prove the father was former boyfriend photographer Larry Birkhead.

Tragically 5 months after Daniel died Anna was found unconscious in her hotel room in Hollywood, FL and died on February 8, 2007. She died from a combination of drugs with the main cause being Chloral Hydrate. Her autopsy revealed she had a total of 11 drugs in her system at the time of her death. Her life and death have been portrayed in a London based opera. Sadly Anna Nicole sparkled and the sparkle went out far too soon.
