On this day seven years ago on February 8 in 2007 Anna Nicole Smith died of an accidental drug overdose. She was a larger than life character. She had a rags to riches story. She was popular with the public with all her wild and crazy antics. But really Anna Nicole Smith was an easy person to love and root for.
She experienced a rough childhood and had her son Daniel at an early age. She was a stripper to support her and her son. She wasn't a popular dancer at the club because of her small breasts but then she got her famous breast implants. She wanted them the size of bowling balls and she got what she asked for. Anna Nicole then sent in pictures to Playboy magazine and was offered a spread. She was also named "Playmate of the Year" in 1993.
Anna Nicole Smith also married an oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II in 1994. She was 26 years old and the millionaire was 89. He died a year later. She was promised a part of his fortune when he died by Mr. Marshall but J. Howard Marshall's son Pierce Marshall fought Anna on this. Anna would spend her whole life fighting the courts and fighting Pierce Marshall for any of J. Howard Marshall's fortune. Pierce Marshall died in 2006 and Anna died in 2007. Anna never saw any inheritance from J. Howard Marshall's estate.
Anna appeared in several films and modeled for Guess and Lane Bryant. Some people thought it was hard shooting someone of her size but men and women everywhere loved her. Her pictures from the Guess ads were gorgeous. She was a stunning beauty. Anna Nicole then got her on series on E! Network called The Anna Nicole Show. It featured Anna, her son Daniel, her lawyer and friend Howard K. Stern, and her sweet and precious lovable dog Sugar Pie. Viewers tuned in each week to see what Anna would do and say next. The public was fascinated with her.
In 2006, her daughter Dannielynn was born in the Bahamas. Anna was so happy and was proud to be a mother to a beautiful baby girl. Anna's son Daniel came to see his baby sister in the Bahamas where they took family photographs. It was a happy occasion that soon turned to tragedy. Three days after Dannielynn was born, Anna's son and Dannielynn's brother Daniel died of an accidental drug overdose. Anna was devastated. She had lost the love of her life. Anna did everything for Daniel. Daniel was her life. Anna couldn't bear the thought of going on without her son. At Daniel's funeral, Anna tried to climb in the casket with Daniel saying that if Daniel has to be buried I want to be buried with him. Life was never the same for Anna Nicole Smith after her son died. She was a happy mother to Dannielynn and Dannielynn brought sunshine into her life but a part of her died the day Daniel died.
Paternity of Dannielynn was fought between Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead. Several different men claimed to be the father of Anna's baby but it was proved in court that Larry Birkhead was the biological father of Dannielynn and he gained custody of the little girl.
On February 8, 2007 Anna Nicole Smith was pronounced dead of an accidental drug overdose. She was 39. Fans everywhere mourned the loss of Anna Nicole Smith. Her death made headlines around the world.
Anna Nicole Smith will always be remembered as a fun party girl but she had a heart of gold. She knew how to have a good time but she loved her son and daughter so much. Their happiness meant everything to her. Anna will be forever missed.
The battle of J. Howard Marshall's fortune has gone on for 10 long years but Anna Nicole Smith's estate may finally receive a portion of Marshall's estate. Dannielynn could possibly receive 49 million from the late J. Howard Marshall's estate.
Anna's daughter Dannielynn has followed in her mom's footsteps by modeling for Guess. She is a beautiful little girl. She has Anna Nicole's smile and free spirit. She is a natural in front of the camera. She got her photogenic gene from her mom who modeled Guess jeans. Dannielynn lives with her dad Larry Birkhead and is enjoying a happy and carefree childhood. Larry Birkhead has turned out to be a wonderful and caring father to Dannielynn. Anna would be happy to know her baby girl is being well taken care of and loved.
We will all have to guess why Anna Nicole Smith had to leave us so early but she will never be forgotten.
