Requiem for a well-endowed* trainwreck

R.I.P. Anna Nicole Smith, 1967-2007.

About the closest she ever came to being "classy".

And there goes a huge part of my adolescence. At least her daughter now has a shot at a normal upbringing.

*Literally and figuratively.

Does the interview with Tom and Roseanne Arnold make her more classy?

For the sake of the world I must ask, "WHO GIVES A SHIT?"

There, I feel better...

Am I the only one seeing a suspicious pattern here?

1) ANS has baby girl with unidentified baby-daddy.

2) ANS adult son dies mysteriously. Docs aren't a hundred percent sure how.

3) ANS has non-wedding wedding with claimed baby-daddy.

4) ANS dies mysteriously.

5) Baby, baby-daddy, and a kajillion dollars march off into the sunset.

Hmmm... am I the only one wondering if we have a real-life Maggie Simpson on our hands?

Ah...we can always count on George to take us out of the sentimental and return us to Whogivesashit-land. I agree Micah, I feel like various experiences from my younger years, which we need not delve deeper into, are now moot. I have to say though, I had her in my death poll this year cause you had to know this trainwreck was coming to its last stop soon.

All I know is - I'm sick of the Marilyn Monroe comparisons..

jasdye said...

someone compared her to marilyn monroe?

*resisting Bill Clinton jokes, resisting Bill Clinton jokes*

George - Does that mean that the news has hit Saipan?

law fairy - Does that make ANS Mr. Burns? Ewwwww.

Fraley - There he is, always having my back. If you would've asked the Teenage Me if this was the biggest news in the world, you'd get a "hell yeah". Now...not so much.

KtG - Seriously, I haven't heard the comparison (and I've watched a lot of news - you can't escape this story, unfortunately). But they were both fake blondes and shaped like real women, and posed for Playboy. Does that pretty much cover it?

jasdye - Go ahead and tell your joke.

M- true, they're both curvy blondes. But MM was in one of the classic comedies of all time. She had an affair with one of the mose legendary presidents of all time. She has become an icon of beauty and celebrity and even inspired a song by Elton John.

I hope to God we don't revere ANS the same way 30 years down the road...

Say what you want, but she lived her life like a candle in the wind.
