Another Anna Nicole Round-Up

Whew, as tons of information pours in about Anna Nicole Smith's life, death, and legacy, we will continue our updates trying to sift through the mass to bring you only the important stories. The whole saga is still taking place at absolute whirlwind speed, that's for sure.

As many of you know, the final moments of Anna's life, while her bodyguard was administering CPR were caught on tape and sold for a disgusting sum of at least $500,000 to Splash News and were later broadcast on Entertainment Tonight. We're not going to link to the video, but if you're looking it shouldn't be too hard to find.

This morning's hearing did not rule in Larry Birkhead's favor and the DNA swab will not be taken; however, Anna's body will be preserved at least until February 20th when another hearing is scheduled. In the meantime, Anna's mother is on her way to the Bahamas to try and retrieve Dannielynn.

We have also learned that Anna Nicole has been suffering severe depression since the death of her son, Daniel, but was happy that she and Howard K. Stern were planning to legally wed at the end of the month. Their first ceremony in the Bahamas, performed soon after Daniel's death, was not legally binding.

Finally, more and more accounts of the scene of death are saying that it appeared like Anna suffered from a drug overdose. Of course, official toxicology results will not be available for some days. Anna's mother has spoken out as well about her daughter's past with drugs.

Howard K. Stern was interviewed by the local police last night. He was reported as being cooperative.

And the award for the most random person throwing his chips in the pile goes to: Zsa Zsa Gabor's Husband, who now claims that he is, in fact, Dannielynn's father. Uh, sure.

In yesterday's motion Birkhead's lawyers wanted Anna Nicole's DNA taken because they claimed that if they didn't, there wouldn't be a way to prove that the baby that eventually is submitted for testing is in fact Dannielynn. So whenever they get DNA from a baby, they want to compare it to Anna Nicole's DNA first and then to Birkhead's. The judge denied it, but then said that the body had to be preserved until Dannielynn's scheduled DNA test on the 20th. Creepy. I don't know what all is involved in taking a DNA test...I thought it just involved cheek scrapings or hair or blood samples or whatever. Wouldn't it just be easier to do that than to preserve her for all that time?

Everyone's claiming that poor baby is his daughter (probably cuz of all the money she is going to inherit), god, that's just sick, leave the innocent baby alone!

"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 think I read a comment about her being the next Marilyn. She had tons of facial surgery to look like that, it is not at all her natural face. She was the poster child for plastic surgery!

Stern is evil and I bet he's not the father. Why fight paternity if you know who the daddy is? Very creepy to just pack up and move out of the country to avoid a simple DNA test. And I think there's something telling that all of her relatives want Larry Birkhead to be the daddy so Stern will go away. He was probably keeping her doped up so he could control her and get his hands on her money. I think you fight paternity testing when you're afraid of the results and she was clearly afraid of the results.

which lawyer said all larry had to do was go where the baby was and file the motions there, and that this matter can be cleared up in no time.

A paternity test would stop all these randoms claiming to be the father...

This whole situation is sad and disturbing. I worry about that little girl. When did Marilyn M. die?This may sound whacky and cracked but I do believe that Marilyn came back as Anna. Remember it was a "conspiracy theory" when she died, thats what this whole thing is turning out to be. I'll settle the whole custody dispute the baby can come here and live with us. Neutral territory. That way she can grow up normal, not being fought over and corrupted.

Why am I not surprised that that pseudo-prince of Anhalt is showing off, too? He's such an attention whore - he'd even attend the opening of an envelope. *rolls eyes* This wank is just in the beginning. We'll hear much more in the coming days. It's just so sad about the poor little girl of Anna. When she's older she'll be confronted with all that crap about her Mom's death.

Wow. The only thing worse than spending half a million on a video of someone dying is airing it. Just wow. Again, thank you for not linking to it.

Why the f*ck are they not letting Larry get his paternity test?! That poor baby can't just be floating around from caregiver to caregiver while all sorts of randoms play tug of war over her, she needs to be with her real father!!!!!!!!

That is so awful that someone would tape her death, and then sell it. It's so cruel it brings tears to my eyes. She was a human being. A confused and tragic human being, but still. She deserved to die with some dignity. I know she is gone, and in a better place, but my heart aches for her. Even her death has to be turned into a circus.

I wasn't a big fan of Anna Nicoles, but I really feel awful over the loss of her life ... It's so sad and such a shame. Postpardam and depression were key factors in my mind, as she never was able to mourn her own son's death in peace- The media was all over her messy and troubled life. Soo sad.

last night the clip was on the news here in South Florida. You couldn't see her, only the paramedic, but it was sad. The Hard Rock hotel is just about 10 min from here and all the local news are covering this tragedy. _____________________________________________ * supergirl will kick yo punk-ass *

Frederic von Anhalt just disgusts me. He is neither a real prince, nor is that his real name. He just payed some poverty stricken princess a lot of money for adopting him. I don't believe a word he says...

*Snort* Any wagers as to how many more "real fathers" will come out of the woodwork now??? Next we'll hear Dubya laying claim.
