Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

ACHY, BREAKY ...


Can you die from a broken heart?

I'd say that's what took Anna Nicole Smith yesterday.

The 39-year-old blond bombshell just gave up (most likely with the help of a few drugs) after the death of her son in September.

It didn't help that she was a media joke ever since she stripped her way out of Texas, became a Playboy centerfold and married a rich old man who forgot to take care of her in his will.


OK, so she made some bad choices, but she was fragile, like Marilyn ... a victim of too many stressful life events.

It's all too sad.

I was rooting for you, Anna, like many others who watched as you tried, time after time (even when you were fat), to pull yourself out of the muck and mire.

Hopefully, you're at peace now.

It's shameful mainstream and cable press dedicating so much air time to this woman..where are the 3-hour specials of the individual men/women killed to protect our freedom? What are their names and faces and their tragic tales? Anna Nicole Smith not a heroine, just a heroin-user...

Maybe side affects of the diet pill Trim Spa?

Just a pathetic situation brought on mostly by the late Anna Nicole Smith herself
Of dubious talents to start with,she attempted to hook her wagon to the star of a billionaire.
She lived hard and fast like her
must cherished role model Marilyn Monroe.We placed her atop the pop chart despite her obvious dysfunctions.Now we castigate her for those same dysfunctions.The only victim in the senseless death is the little 5 month old daughter for whom paternity has yet to be decided.
Sorry, I feel nothing for Ms. Smith.
Brittany,have you gleaned a lesson in all of this?

Another one bites the dust. Maybe there should be a national holiday in memory of all the blonde bombshells !! For me, I'm in mourning.

Diana,

You have a very good heart and like a good American should, you feel sorry for the underdog. But in this case, Pete is right. The only one to feel sorry for is the little baby girl. And if the father turns out to be Zsa Zsa's husband, won't that be a doozey. Anna Nicole was a world-class slut.

I see that Pete is the man without sin casting the first stone.

Congratulations, Pete.

A lot of time and energy is being spent and will be spent on the demise of this woman. I am sad that she died, because she was young and has an infant daughter who willnever really know who her true friends are because they'll all want a piece of her vast fortune.

What did Anna Nicole Smith contribute to society? Does anyone know anything altruistic she did? Did she donate money to the poor, (hurricane Katrina victims, perhaps?). I'mnot being facetious. I want to know. Because so much time and media energies are being spent on her death ( and her life). Was she more than an egocentric pretty faced woman? I hope so.

The happiest people in America right now are the astro-nut and Ryan O'Neal because Anna Nicole is now the celebrity disaster du jour..

well broken heart can lead to lots of conditions from which you can die .. but you can't die from a broken heart .. a broken heart might lead one to jump off a building but it won't be the fall that kills ya ..

theoretically, if Zsa Zsa's prince hubby IS the "baby daddy", then she'd be her step-mama..sounds like a Montel,Jerry Springer or Maury Povich show all rolled into one! Yikes! I say, the plot "sickens"...how about this headline: Bahama Mama Trauma Drama

Supposedly Anna Nicole had some of her rich, dead husband's sperm frozen before he died, and used that to get pregnant with Dannielynn. I'd say that's pretty damn smart of the so-called dumb blond. If she thought of it herself.

The baby's name is Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern so maybe some truth to that...(another Howard, Howard Marshall was the old ex-coot)..smarter yet was her partner Howard K. Stern who was probably the mastermind behind all of this..he was her attorney during all of the billionaire will trials, etc..they were supposedly to be wed next week in Bahamas to legalize everything, guess all his manipulating finally caught up with him afterall..I'd wager that the real father is the photographer Larry Birkhead who will get eventual custody...I'd also wager that most Americans know all the players in this unfolding soap opera but not the names of the presidential candidates!

We can all say what we want about Anna but none of us KNEW her. She was a celebrity and that is why there is so much media on her. She had no secrets because they were all uncovered by media. I bet if any one of us was under a microscope we would look like sluts and depicted as someone that we really are not. I feel bad that she lost her son even if his death may have been a result of her lifestyle. No one no deserves to loose a child. Yes, she should have straightened up for her daughter but we are not all perfect and sometimes we get lost. I hope that the baby has a loving father and family to take care of her.

That baby has about as much chance of having a loving family and father as Anna did really loving the sugar daddy. That poor baby is nothing but a pawn to alot of sick people, including the grandmother.
