1. Anna Nicole Smith: Dead
Only minutes after the news of her death hit the internet, the jokes started. I know it is human nature to make light of death when we aren't intimately involved, and I have no problem with that. It seems right. But many of the jokes I read were not only in bad taste, but also just plain mean. Anna Nicole's life might not have been the most respectable, but even at her highest points, she just seemed so sad. Although I have no belief in the afterlife, I hope she has found some kind of peace.
2. Illegal Aliens
Her last movie role.
3. $1.6 billion
Victory in the United States Supreme Court.
I can't say I was following the news, but there was something about a contested paternity suit and then Anna married her lawyer.
I'm trying to find only positive stories on Anna Nicole, but unfortunately, interest in the misery and controversy of her life far outweighed interest in anything else. The best I can come up with is a review of her soft-core film performances from 1993 to 1999 when she was at the top of her game. Please don't click if you are offended by references to nudity.
