  • R.I.P. miss Anna Nicole Smith, or Vicky Lynn Hogan. You will be missed.

    7.5
    Vicky Lynn Hogan was born in Mexia, Texas, on November 28, 1978. She later on changed her name to Anna Nicole Smith, from working at Topless bars to make money, probably her stripper's name. She then started posing for Playboy, and became a Playmate. She then got a job as a Guess model, and started being in films. She got married to a very old guy, but then he died. His family members claimed that she was a gold digger. Years later she became the spokes person for Trim-spa after losing all her weight. Just when things started going smooth for her, news brings up that her son died. Many months later, after Anna had her baby, she is reported dead. No one knows what caused Anna to die.

    True, Anna didn't have the cleanest, or the purest life. But she manged it in her own way. Anna doesn't deserve all those people saying crap about her or her death!moreless
  • Vickie Lynn Marshall (November 28, 1967 – February 8, 2007), better known by her stage name Anna Nicole Smith, was an American model, actress and celebrity who first gained popularity as Playboy's 1993 Playmate of the Year.moreless

    Anna Nicole Smith was obsessed with Marilyn Manroe. She even said she wanted to die like her. Anna's entire life revolved around her Marilyn obsession, as she had such plans to remake one of Marilyn's movies, and as you could probably notice, resembled some of Marilyn's trademark features (blonde hair, beauty mark, red lipstick). Even though the public did not think very highly of Anna, I need to give her credit for making something out of nothing. She become a famous billionaire overnight, by doing what? Being herself? I would like to see the people who critisize her pull something like that. Even though she did not carry on Marilyn Manroe's social graces or charm, she did know how to publisize herself. She will be missed.moreless
