Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith (real name Vickie Lynn Hogan) is an American model and actress.

She was born in 1967 in Mexia, Texas. She started her career by becoming 1993's Playboy playmate of the year. She was compared to Marylin Monroe for her full figure and blonde hair.

In an interview on Late Night With Conan O'Brian[?] she was asked what her "playmate diet" consisted of. She replied "fried chicken".

In 1993, Anna Nicole married billionaire J. Howard Marshall when she was 26; he was nearly 90 at the time. He passed away in 1999, and Anna Nicole was involved in a court battle with her former stepson, E. Pierce Marshall, for half of her late husband's $1.6 billion estate. After a series of legal victories and setbacks, in March of 2002 she was awarded $88 million from the estate of her late husband.

In 2002 Anna Nicole starred in a reality TV[?] series on the E! cable network entitled The Anna Nicole Show[?], which focused on her personal and private life in the manner of such other "reality" shows as the recent hit The Osbournes. Critics blasted her show, saying it was so bad it deserved to be pitied. The show was an initial hit upon its debut, though ratings dropped with each successive week. As of September 2002, it was too early to tell if her show was a brief fad or a genuine hit.
