Anna Nicole Smith, Curiouser and Curiouser
"Anna Nicole, you're so outrageous."
Or so we were told four years ago when the stripper/model/Playboy playmate helped to establish the celeb-reality genre with trainwreck-on-film "The Anna Nicole Show." Antics that left us alternately entertained and confused at the time seem tame compared to Smith's current reality.
To put it bluntly: we hadn't seen anything yet. The maelstrom that is Smith's life has only continued to pick up steam since the September birth of her daughter and nearly simultaneous death of her 20-year-old son.
A splashy, exclusive interview that aired last night on "Entertainment Tonight" was nothing short of surreal, with Smith and lawyer Howard K. Stern talking about their love and plans for a life together with baby Dannielyn. Although Smith did cry and lament the death of son Daniel, the interview only lightly touched on the ongoing investigation into his death -- Smith says she doesn't remember that day -- and virtually ignored the possible eviction of Smith from the home she's occupied since arriving in the Bahamas earlier this year and photographer Larry Birkhead's attempts to advance his claim of fathering Dannielyn.
The interview was taped over the weekend and, in light of this week's developments, was pretty much worthless (aside from a few minutes of good gawking at Smith's seemingly sedated image and a look at the baby so as to better determine whether or not that child's hair has been dyed).
On Monday, Smith returned to the hospital for treatment of pneumonia and a collapsed lung and yesterday news reports surfaced claiming her son's body contained more drugs than originally reported. And a deposition obtained by TMZ.com claims Smith admitted that photographer Larry Birkhead fathered her child and took both methadone and Xanax while pregnant in May 2006.
I think we're beyond outrageous at this point.
