Anna Nicole Marries For Money Again?

Anna Nicole never ceases to surprise us. Like everyone else, we feel really bad for her these days since she lost her son, but we were genuinely happy for her when we heard the news last week of her marriage to her attorney and supposed father to her baby girl, Howard K. Stern. Now it seems as if the marriage may have been a ploy for more photography royalties from the gossip mags. It might not have been a wedding but a simple commitment ceremony. Radar is reporting that "a well-placed source in the celebrity magazine market says People paid Getty Images close to $1 million for photos." Here's more:

According to the source, Smith and Stern did not actually get married, as a report on Star magazine's website claimed, but merely held a commitment ceremony. "They clearly staged this as a money-making thing," adds the source. "They just decided to create another photo op." So why did People buy in? Perhaps because it got beat on the newsstand the previous week by In Touch, which shelled out a reported $400,000 for the last photos of Smith's son Daniel.

A story like this only makes you want to not feel bad for Anna Nicole anymore. It seems like things always have to do with money with her. We hope she is feeling better but let's hope all that money goes to some charity.

Right On Ginger! WHo is this "source" that decided this was for $$$ ne way. A single mom has to do whatever to care for her kid. I could care less about her staging a photo op. Who does it hurt? Besides she is very vulnerable right now maybe its what she needs to help her deal with his death.

Hold on, was it ever even known that she was romantically involved with her attorney before he claimed the baby was his? Obviously not, considering everyone was left wondering who the father was. Now suddenly they're married? What the hell?

I've lost all sympathy for this woman. I feel dirty just reading about her.

The reason her son isn't buried yet is because the police won't release the body until the investigation is complete. Someone was going to make a ton of money off her photos, so why shouldn't she get a cut? I'm not a ANS fan by any stretch, but I'm not going to brow-beat a single-mom for doing what she can to make some money. The whole Howard claiming to be the dad thing is probably to try and keep from having her daughter taken away in a custody battle. She just lost her son, and what mom wouldn't do whatever was needed to keep from losing another child?

that money is going to the poor white trash, stripper, Guess model, Playboy posing, marry a rich man so old one foot in the grave, pill popping, sell my family and my soul for a buck, marry my obsessed lawyer to protect my baby from her real father before my son is even in the ground charity that is Anna Nicole Smith.

JennaV I've been reading about what you said in your post . It's been all over other sites. There seem to be a lot more salacious details out there to this whole Anna Nicole story. I don't think it's a stretch to think she was hooked on heroine. She lost that weight FAST and it wasn't from Trimspa, baby. Quite frankly I find the whole story sad and pathetic and I feel dirty just reading about this whole darn thing.

She is a terrible person. All the bad things she has done, will catch up with her. I hope she loses all the money.

I have NO sympathy for ANS. Laying her son to rest seems to be very low on her list of priorities. She's trash and so is her "husband" HKS. I hope Birkhead is the real dad and gets the baby away from those two. What's next? Pics of Daniel's funeral? Autopsy photos? Disgusting.

Hello! Creepy attorney's name is HOWARD STERN. I would legally change my name if I wanted to be taken seriously. This is a mess, and I don't think ANS is normal, sane, healthy, so I wouldn't be surprised if it were true.

Anyone hear the new theory? That the methadone was hers (big f***ing shock) and the reason that she went to The Bahamas to have her baby was because they would not do a drug test (or I guess blood test) when it was born. I totally buy it.

I am totally disgusted and appalled by that creep attorney of hers. claiming the baby is his. YEAH, RIGHT. He should be ashamed of himself. He followed A.N.S. around like a drooling puppy on that ridiculous show of hers so maybe he feels this is his opportunity to GET her. He needs his license revoked. What a disgrace of an attorney. Someone actually gave him his doctorate of jurisprudence? I am amazed!

I heard she was married and Daniel isn't even buried yet. The woman is an opportunist. "Like MySpace, only more arrogant"

she grew up a poor teenage mother....... why not make money off her celebrity status? and what with her son dying right after giving birth, who knows where she is mentally right now. i would be a dis-functioning basket case. i like that the x-bfriend has stepped up to claim paternity and is trying to get her to have a paternity test. the results of that should be interesting.

If that is true that is so sick....she should be grieving for her child and dealing with that loss, rather than thinkng about money
