HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Anna Nicole Smith, the voluptuous former Playboy centerfold who married an octogenarian billionaire and waged a legal battle for his fortune all the way to the Supreme Court, died Tuesday after collapsing at a hotel. She was 39. |
The blond bombshell — who recently became tabloid fodder all over again after the sudden, apparently drug-related death of her 20-year-old son — was found was unresponsive while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, said the attorney, Ron Rale. She was rushed to a hospital.
The cause of death was not immediately disclosed.
The curvaceous Texas-born Smith was a topless dancer at strip club before she made the cover of Playboy magazine in 1992, captivating readers with her Marilyn Monroe looks. She became Playboy's playmate of the year in 1993.
She was also signed to a contract with Guess jeans, appearing in TV commercials, billboards and magazine ads.
Isn't that depressing? The voluptuous, goldigging, curvaceous, topless dancer will be greatly missed. I just hope that's what I'm remembered for too.
