Oh, Anna Nicole

I guess we all saw this coming.

Poor girl never got her act together. I have no idea why, but I always liked her.

I realize that’s ridiculous. She was not the smartest. She used sex to get ahead. But it was all she had. Literally. I always gave her a pass.

Britney never will get a pass from me, but Anna Nicole always did.

I’m an enigima enigma.
I think I always thought of her as the really stupid, “bad” version of me. Life out of control. Drugs everywhere. Boobs all over the place.

Rest in peace Anna Nicole.


  1. See, that’s odd, because I really related to her too. I think it’s a case of “there but the grace of God”.
    I know it sounds cheesy, but I really hope she has peace now, and if there is a next time around that it’s better for her.

  2. She took what she had and she worked it as hard as she could work it. Like Marilyn, she played dumb but was smart. It is so sad that she lost her child and now her baby won’t have a mom.

  3. Whatever will the tabloids do?

    I actually didn’t like her, but I’ll admit that I could stand her way more than Brit-Brit any day.

  4. You know, I always liked her too. I’m so sad for her baby girl. With all she’s gone through this past year, I think its a true testament to the fact that stress kills.

  5. I don’t know if I liked her….but I can’t stand Brittney. I liked your post though. I am new here. Great blog!

  6. Wasn’t a big fan, but at least she didn’t try to pretend to be someone else. And you do have to credit her for coming from nothing and making the most…whether you agree or not!

  7. What’s an enigima?

  8. Queen of Spain says:

    It’s the pain killer version of Enigma.

    I swear I spelled that right earlier.

    Somebody check their bloglines.

  9. I think it’s interesting that her death has made many of us pause. Maybe it’s because despite all of her flaws, she was a mom that loved her son. I think we can all relate to that.

    I hope she finds peace.

  10. I think that the thing that was likeable about her was that she was innocent. Not of sex (obviously) – but really of the world. She just didn’t GET the world. She was a Mom who was fiercely protective of her son, and yeah she married and old geezer but it’s not like she went out and FOUND an old Geezer – he found HER.
    Anna Nicole just went bumping through life….and being pretty was enough for her.

    I sometimes wish being pretty was enough for me – because it sure would make life easier if I wasn’t smart enough to worry about things.

  11. Queen of Spain says:

    I’d like to just point out…that this discussion seems appropriate for my little blog…not ALL DAY ALL NIGHT NEWS COVERAGE.

    I mean, there is a war going on right? Why is Anna Nicole the lead story?

    I’m so glad I’m not in news anymore. I’d be banging my head against the news room wall.

  12. I wasn’t surprised, just a little shocked the her demise happened so soon.

    Busy Mom and I are conspiracy theorists, though. We think Howard K. Stern killed Daniel, now Anna, and is claiming Dannielynn is his daughter because she would then be the sole heir if Anna ever wins the Marshall estate court battle.

  13. Drop dead at the seminole hard rock and I can guarantee you front page coverage and 24/7 lead story status by CNN.

    Of course, since you were in FLA – there would have been midgets and child molesters involved. The drugs would be a given……..

    And I like the conspiracy theory……..it works for me.

    I hope the baby gets it all.

  14. I think Gidge nailed it; she was an innocent in how she dealt with people. I shook my head at her actions, sometimes, but she reminded me more of my not-so-swift cousin. The one that never gets a joke (or at least gets it after everyone else), the one that always assumes others have the best intentions because she does.

    I have to admit I was kinda shocked at the media circus. Almost every TV at the gym yesterday was turned to one Breaking News cast or another showing AMS. Ugh. Her death is a total train wreck, and we’re all mesmerized.

  15. From Buzzmachine.com

    NBC’s Nightly News devoted 14 seconds to Iraq compared to 3 minutes and 13 seconds to Anna Nicole. CNN referenced Anna Nicole 522% more frequently than it did Iraq. MSNBC was even worse � 708% more references to Anna Nicole than Iraq.

  16. I have to admit that I always had a little fondness for Anna Nicole myself. Despite the several head shaking moments that she had through-out her short life, I always hoped that she would come out on top. I just always got the sense from her that she didn’t have a nasty or mean spirit in her body, even though she was the butt of many jokes and cruel statements, it just seemed that she was a genuinely sweet and gentle person.

    I just hope that things work out for her baby girl, and that she is provided a safe and loving home.

  17. The one thing I liked about her was she never pretended she was someone else. She seemed to just be herself. I think she was horrible taking advantage of by her lawyer/lover/husband/creepy guy Howard.

  18. i’m with ya, erin. poor girl…
