As you have read already, Anna Nicole Smith died today. I'm sure she will get a lot of bad press due
to all the circumstances surrounding her life lately, with her paternity issues, her son's death, and
her drug use. She was, however, quite a success story. Born poor in Texas, she got herself noticed,
was a Playboy Playmate, and was a successful model for Guess jeans. She's most known as the widow of
the late J. Howard Marshall, the Texas billionaire whom she wed, and whom she didn't get a cent from
after his death. Love her or hate her, she earned her reputation on her own merits. Maybe she was
one of those people who are famous seemingly because they are famous. But she did it on her own. I
hope she finds what she's looking for in a better world.
