Anna Nicole Smith Update

After the tragic news early this afternoon, we know tons of you are wondering what will become of the many loose ends in Anna Nicole Smith's life. Here is a quick look at what has emerged as of yet:

  • The autopsy is scheduled to take place tomorrow.
  • Anna's Lawyer/Husband/Boyfriend Howard K. Stern has yet to make a statement.
  • At the time of Anna's death, she was with her nurse. Her bodyguard was also there and performed CPR on her before the paramedics arrived.
  • Her infant, whose paternity is still in question, Dannielynn is currently in the Bahamas in the care of a friend.
  • Larry Birkhead, the ex who claims to be the father of Dannielynn, has not issued a statement, but his lawyer has said that he is "not ok."
  • The ramifications this will have on the legal proceedings surrounding her late husband's inheritance have not been discussed at this time.
  • For statements from Hugh Hefner, PETA, The Marshall Family, Trimspa, E!, etc, check in with TMZ who are covering every move of this story as it unfolds.

While we are seriously unsettled by this story (and its eerily similar tone to that surrounding her son's death five months ago), hopefully concrete facts will emerge soon so we can get a better read of what actually happened. We will keep you updated.

Child abuse is not legal. Why is Vergie Arthur not being looked at by law enforcement for her abuse of Anna? No human should go through child abuse, and no adult should get away with it.

"I think, maybe for the general public it's not quite as scary that blood thirsty satanist were out murdering children as it is too believe that parents are actually murdering thier own children." ~Damien Echols~ I read that her daughter's father was her son.

C'mon people, have you not seen Anna's family? Seriously, it wouldn't suprise me. You're all acting as though she's some kind of saint. If you want to talk about someone who died recently that truely WAS a loss for our world: STEVE IRWIN. Now THAT is tragic.

That's pretty darn sick to suggest the baby is her son's! They're both dead, show some respect!!!

this is horrible...regardless of what, she's a mom who tried to provide for her baby (when she had Daniel) used what little she had to try to make it...period....mothers everywhere know the need to provide above and beyond for your children...I'm a stepmom, which is different but the love you feel is so strong this lady had some major issues with pills or whatever her poision was...but she always seemed like a nice, sweet person and it's just ridiuculous to hear people bashing a woman who lost a child within hrs of giving birth...i think it was too much and she lost a lot of her will, even with the new heart goes out to her family and mostly her little baby who will never remember being kissed, or held by her mommy (sh*t, i'm seriously about to make myself cry)and won't remember her big brother..................hug your family tight when you get home

Anyone ever think that maybe the new baby is her SON'S?? We all know how mentally unstable she was, maybe she knew that the truth would come out and she didn't want to live with everyone shaming her for having sex with her son. Her son's death, and now her death? Seems a little coincidental if you ask me. Just a thought.

Anna Nicole Smith was a woman who left this earth with her potential untapped. She made so many mistakes along the way because she lacked the proper guidance. Seeing her in "Naked Gun 33 1/2" and "The Hudsucker Proxy", you could see that she actually had enormous potential to be a decent character actress, but she was so self sabotaging. Now she's gone, too soon, and has left her daughter behind. I just hope she has peace and her daughter can find stability.

She was a broken spirt after Daniel died. Rest in peace. **~~Everyone who's anyone has been on sesame street.~~**

I'm disgusted after reading the appalling comments people were writing on TMZ before her death was clarified! Regardless of the many personal issues she had, her death has resulted in a small baby being left motherless! And the fact that people were making sick jokes and wishing death on her minutes before she died for real absolutely sickens me! I wonder how many of those posters had the grace to feel even vaugely ashamed when her actual death was reported! I'm so glad that the majority of Popsugar readers are intelligent & sympathetic, unlike the hate-filled posters you find on so many other blogs! :STAR: I ♥ Popsugar :STAR:

I'm positive that baby is Larry Birkhead's you just have to look at the 2 baby pics on his website of Dannie Lynn & himself to see that. I really hope he can get custody soon because he really does seem like a decent guy.

This is just so tragic and sad. I wish Anna all the peace I am not so sure she got in her life. I am sure she died with a broken heart. I wish her beautiful baby girl to be taken care of by wonderful, loving people. I can't believe this little baby has already lost her brother and her mother - it is unimaginable.

Tanda, I absolutely agree. More than a hundred thousand people die every day, and I am sure that a great deal of them have more to offer this world than Anna Nicole.

It's always sad to see someone so young die, I mean 39 is still young.She had many years and a daughter, she was obviously doped up much of the time. I hope everything works out for all concerns.And yes Howard is weird!

Tragic? So sad? Come on. I heard someone on TV liken this to the death of Marilyn Monroe. No people, this is not at all the same and is a totally expeted outcome. Sorry, but wasn't Anna (aka Vickie Marshall) a trashy money grubbing drugy? She clearly married an octogenarian for his money and to earn notoriety. She led a messy life and was not nice to those around her (did anyone see her TV show)? Everything around her was always suspect - is she on drugs? why won't she submit her daughter for paternity testing? Possibly because she knows that Larry guy is the father and miss dearly departed lied and was willing to ruin his life for her own happiness. She married kinda but maybe not legally her 'lawyer' boyfriend, Howard Stern? The guy that maybe gave her son the medication that killed him in her presence? She was trying to skirt the law by 'residing' in the Bahamas... Sketchy, sketchy, sketchy. Hopefully she has found, I do wish that for her.
