Anna Nicole Smith Dead
Anna Nicole Smith died today in Florida after collapsing at a hotel, one of her lawyers has announced -- not Howard Stern, her lawyer/lover/putative father of her 5-month-old daughter. No cause of death has been speculated about.
Anna Nicole, 39, collapsed and was unresponsive while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino and was rushed to an area hospital.
She'd been at the hotel since Monday and was to have checked out tomorrow.
Anna Nicole was born Vickie Lynn Hogan on November 28, 1967, in Houston, Texas. She married Bill Smith in 1985, and gave birth to a son, Daniel, before divorcing two years later. Daniel, you will recall, died in the Bahamas in September. It's very sad to think about what will now happen to the baby girl. Anna Nicole was almost a caricature, and the butt of a lot of jokes, but it's shocking that she would die so young.
