Anna Nicole Smith

I was in a pub last week that had a Celebrity Death Sweepstakes. You picked a celebrity and if they died in 2007, you would win money depending on how unexpected the death was. We were all thinking of picking someone like Keira Knightley or Nicole Richie. Nobody thought of Anna Nicole Smith. I'd've made out like a bandit.

Seriously though, this was sort of inevitable. She's clearly been exhibiting the behaviour of someone with a drink or drug (or both) problem and her life was pretty much imploding around her. It's all very sad, most especially for her five month old daughter.

The UK press is already reporting it's a suicide. Despite the fact no autopsy has been performed and the coroner has said if it wasn't natural causes, the details would be withheld in the beginning. What's worse is an internet rumour has already begun to circulate that the reason for the suicide is the court ordered paternity test that was scheduled for later this month would have revealed the father of her new daughter was her recently deceased 20 year old son. Now that is just so wrong in so many ways.
