Anna, Anna, Fabulous Anna Nicole

It's obvious that she had some quality that caused public fascination. It was evident in Anna Nicole Smith's life and seems even more so in her untimely death.
She had, as many would perceive, a hard and tumultuous life. Yet, considering her roots, she could just as easily have had a tough life in anonymity.

Born Vickie Lynn Hogan in 1967, Smith grew up in the small town of Mexia, Texas. So for her to become the celebrity that she was is not a story or a life a tragedy but one of a resilient Midwest girl that did what she could to change her life and make her dreams come true.

I met Anna a few years back at the West Hollywood Gay Pride Parade (during her fat period and yes, with Howard K. $tern standing nearby)...

Even then, with her weight issues, and after riding in the back of a car on a beastly hot day in a gown and full makeup, she was jaw-dropping, takes-your-breath-away STUNNING. Truly the most breathtakingly beautiful woman I have ever seen.

Sad she's gone. Let's hope the truth surrounding the tragedies be told, and anyone involved is held responsible...
