Anna Nicole Smith, the former Playboy Playmate of the year, was one of the most famous models in the world. Anna worked her way from the bottom, pretty much straight to the top. The first year of Playboy, in Guess Jeans she made $22,000,000. She loved being in front of the camera. She loved the attention. She was an American icon, a sex goddess with an insatiable dark appetite. She came to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to buy a luxury yacht.

It was one of the few times she ventured away from home in the Bahamas since her 20-year-old son Daniel died five months earlier. Going to Florida to buy the boat was the big deal for her. Another way to maybe move forward a little bit to find a little bit of happiness. Anna Nicole planned on keeping the trip short. She was anxious to return home to her newborn daughter Dannielynn, but that plan had quickly fallen apart. For the past two days, she'd been too sick to leave her luxury suite at the Hard Rock Hotel. With Anna Nicole in Florida was her bodyguard, Big Moe. She couldn't eat. She was sweaty, very clammy.

Staying with Anna Nicole in the Hard Rock's luxurious Apollo suite was Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and her lawyer and close companion, Howard Stern. Big Moe's wife Tasma, a nurse, was also in Florida. She told her husband: "Take her to the hospital. If someone's spiking a temp of 105°, something is wrong." But Anna Nicole had no intention of going to the hospital. Every time she'd gone to the hospital, press, had been media frenzy. She didn't want to go. She didn't want to have the cameras all in her face.

Antibiotics and flu medications had brought Anna Nicole's temperatures back to normal, but she was still very tired. On top of that, she had an intestinal infection. The combination was making her unsteady on her feet. The former Playboy Playmate was far from okay. For the past five months, she'd been taking a potent and unpredictable mix of prescription drugs; antidepressants, valium and sleep medication.

There were times where she felt the she should take a little more, in which those that were there, Howard and Dr. Eroshevich, would take it away from her and hide medications from her. She was a woman in pain, not only physical pain, but mental pain. She had a photo of Daniel that she would hug at night and just cried herself to sleep. Barely 39, Anna Nicole Smith was a shadow of the voluptuous blond who 15 years early was the picture of health and sitting on top of the world.

No one should judge a drug addict or alcoholic unless they have walked in that person's shoes. And drugs are not to blame.

Someone was letting her have drugs just like with Michael Jackson. Even if they were prescriptions...too many drugs. You can't turn to Benzos without a supplier.

Very Sad I do not know how i would handle the birth of a child and the death of my son. Yes she should have been hospitalized to heal the infection on her Buttocks . She should have had therapy to handle the death of her son !!Her relationship with her ex husband and his death and the bad press she received as a result of that whole situation should also have been dealt with !! She died needlessly and i feel she latter in life may have had a lot to offer others. Sad !! Good Doc !!!

its important piece of information for all potential drug abusers. it acts as a grim reminder of what lies ahead of them if they choose to go down this path. Sadly, it hardly acts as a counter measure. I think the drug menace is a world war in terms of people already killed and who continue to die.

I have no respect for addicts like this, millions of people cry over famous people dying of drug related deaths, yet millions of children, familes are dying every day due to a lack of food, water and illness yet hardly anyone cares or takes notice.

goes to show that 'beauty' can be a burden esp. in a culture where superficial goes hand in hand with artificial sex iconology. that attractive
people may not have the strength to handle the commotion, instigated by vultures whom claim to be in the duty of free press/media, choose to kill the pain inside with lethal substances & it's outcome has a 50/50 chance of surviving.the poor suffer with ugly misery...& it is said that the rich tend to suffer in style.nicole had the misfortune of not enduring the latter.

With that pathetic excuse for a mother and surrounded by sharks and vultures she never stood much of a chance, and as for the bodyguard's wife the 'nurse' who never noticed that she was dead...........

Whatever feelings you have towards hedonism, it helps to know it only has eyes for tragedy, imo.

Jeezus Christ who cares? She was an addict and she died a miserable death. I mean why put her in the spotlight again? Lemmie guess, couple years from now an Amy Winehouse: Her final Hours documentary will be made too right?

You people make me sick...
