According to her mother: Anna Nicole Smith was a cruel & selfish person

Here a few lines that I remember from ABC's 20/20 http://abcnews.go.com/2020/ interview with Anna Nicole Smith's mother: Virgie Arthur.

"She chose drugs over us". Her sister was sick of cancer, we didn't see a penny of Anna trying to help her family ever".

http://www.abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=2863654

So much money and not a penny to a sick sister? I feel sorry for her tragedies but not for her cold heart!

I suspect Anna Nicole's relatives were only trying to cozy up to her for her money.

I am reminded of the scene in "Milliion Dollar Baby" where Hilary Swank's deadbeat relatives come visit her in the nursing home and try to persuade her to sign over her money and property. I cheered when she threw them out.

One almost can smell the lack of class in a person who would get on stage and speak ill of her dead daughter.

Anna Nicole was basically a drug-addicted slut. All this wasted airtime after her inevitable demise illustrates how shamefully immoral our society has become. There is absolutely nothing to admire in a cheap gold-digger.

I wish all this air time on ANS would stop. I feel bad she died but she was a train wreck waiting to happen. I don't think she was too close with her mother, I vaguely remember hearing a relative basically raised her but I tend not to pay attention to the gossip about ANS. I do know the mother was on Nancy Grace saying she was worried about Howard K Stern. I would think the mother should just shut up and get her granddaughter. The less she says about her daughter the better. Prayers that this innocent child gets a decent loving home with normal people.

Agree!

Perhaps her self induced drug addiction was a feeble attempt to escape herself. She certainly was a haughty one. That much anyone could see.

If her mother stated Anna was selfish and cold ... I have no reason to doubt it. There comes a time when the child should help if the parent is in need. A child should WANT to do this. It sounds like they survived without her money.

It's a pity or maybe poet justice that she ran around with cold hearted and selfish people who ENABLED her demise for $$$$.

I was wondering about that too ... maybe this Stern chacter won't allow her near this baby. He's really a pimp but he does have a law degree ... and may know enough to keep others away.

That baby girl needs to be removed from this situation. NO GOOD will come from the people she is around. I find it too coincidental that TWO adults died around Howard Stern.

I just think the baby should go to other people then the ones she has in her life...ANS's mother doesn't sound all that wonderful. Who knows....I just pray the baby gets the love she deserves and is raised normally. Howard K Stern isn't the kind of person who I would trust. ~~P~~

At least it got errant astronaut Lisa Nowak off the front pages. The MSM's goldfish attention spam is usually a curse, but in this case, it may be a blessing for the Nowak family.

I don't know who should get the baby, but I'm not sure it should be the Grandmother. After all... she didn't do such a great job of raising her daughter.

Here's a question, say the Granddaughter was NOT going to get any money from the inheritance, would the Grandmother still want to raise her? Or, is it all about the money?

I really don't know the answer to that. I think with all of them the money is a reason. I don't think ANS family is normal.....None of the people around this poor child fit my idea of normal and its a shame. Remember its going to be a long time before any money is going to be gotten from her husband's estate..if any is won at all. I would hope the grandmother is able to get the child back to the states and a court decides where the baby's best interests are and who is able to raise her normally. This is a really sad story and I just pray the baby is safe. Seems strange everyone around Howard K Stern are on methadone & die to me....

I just did some searching on marriages at sea. It was quite interesting and it may be that they were married "in fact". The Florida/Bahama area appear to have somewhat complex marriage rules.

No clue!

This is one messy situation. It's hard to tell who is lying and what they're lying about.

I just hope someone gets that baby out of there before she too has a mysterious death. Ideally I hope the little girl knows very little about her "mother" and what she did for $$$$.

No real reason to worry about the baby. Any money would be held in trust anyways. You can bet that Stern is "keeper of the trust" etc, etc. This whole scenario sounds like an "attorney's playbook" for a perfect crime.

Did you see this scathing piece by Susan Estrich
of all people?

Anna Nicole Smith: Once More, the Fairy Tale Turns Nightmare
Sunday, February 11, 2007

By Susan Estrich

LOS ANGELES — On Thursday, the world stopped for the death of Anna Nicole Smith. Harvard is electing its first woman president, and the country may be ready to do the same, but the woman of the hour was the one who, as the producer of her most recent film put it, “had the market cornered on the dumb blonde act.”

Why is there still such a vibrant market for “the dumb blonde act?”

“People will see that maybe I have a little talent and will take me serious as an actress,” she said, in explaining her decision to star on “The Anna Nicole Show” which began its two year life on E! Entertainment in 2002.

What people saw, and heard, was that she had difficulty getting out a sentence straight. But Anna Nicole wasn’t somebody to listen to, but to look at. Or leer at. In justifying the endless coverage, the news people kept referring to her climb from the bottom to the top, from teenage mother and waitress to television personality and multi-millionairess.

If Anna Nicole Smith represents the top, we need to teach our daughters to aim elsewhere. If her life was a fairy tale come true, then it tells you what’s wrong with fairy tales. They lie, and mislead. She made it to the top, if you call it that, by taking off hers. She never owned her own success. She was defined by who she married and the size of her breasts. She made many lawyers rich, by fighting for the rights of the golddigger, but she never really won the fight. She gained weight and lost weight, and turned it into her most famous role. She was defined by who she used, and who used her.

No one so far has talked about this, nor have I seen it on any of the websites I visit, as of yet. Has anyone on the blogs or TV talking heads shows looked into whether Anna Nichole Smith had a life insurance policy on her or on her newborn girl? If so, for how much, and who is the beneficiary? Everyone is talking about the potential money value of her kid via the possible Marshall inheritance, but what about insurance on Anna's life? Is Howard K. Stern the beneficiary on any life insurance policy, and if so, how big a one is it?

Also, as per Anna Nichole's mother, she does not want to raise the child. She has her own health problems and had a brain tumor in the not too far past. She is concerned about getting the kid out of Howard K. Stern's clutches. Anna drew away from Virgie when Howard came on the scene, and didn't like that Virgie warned her against drug usage. She should have listened to mama. Plus, it was Virgie who raised Anna's son for her for long periods (the recently dead son that also died of a drug overdose). So Virgie has lost both her grandson whom she was close to, and now her estranged daughter, both to drug usage.

And the common denominator in the two deaths was the presence of Howard K. Stern, who IMO, was the drug facilitator. Virgie is there (in the Bahamas) to try to see the child and make sure she's okay. Also, Virgie is a surrogate for, in my estimation, the real father, Larry Birkhead. Virgie is on Larry's side in this paternity case, and wants him to have the baby. She is down in the Bahama's to check on the wellbeing of the kid. Meanwhile, a trap is being set to try to get Larry Birkhead to file for the paternity test in the Bahamas, rather than in the U.S. I'm sure Howard Stern has already got the courts lined up to side with him in the paternity case, and the kid was initially placed in the care of the Prime Minister of the Bahamas' family, by Stern. So you know the case would be rigged in the Bahamas, against Larry Birkhead's paternity suit, were he to file it there, just as the courts were rigged against the Natalie Holloway death case in Aruba. These corrupt countries like our U.S. dollars, but despise our gov't and wouldn't mind in the least to stick it to our court system, plus I'm sure Stern has been bribing them financially, just as he did to get Nichole citizenship in just 3 weeks, totally contrary to the normal amount of time to gain citizenship in the Bahamas. Hope this gives some insight to those who have not been following this drama very closely.

Don't shoot the messenger - but I heard a newscaster this morning speculate that ANS really loved her son and could it be possible that HE was the father?

I cannot believe I'm actually agreeing with Estrich!
I also cannot believe that Smith was worth pre-empting any real news for the past few days. You would have thought she was a head of state, not an ex-stripper, Playboy honey who married a rich old man and made a career out of being a ditzy drug user...... I ALMOST missed the wall to wall coverage of Shrillary and Obama........
I do, however, feel very sorry for the baby girl. Her life is already a mess!

Here, read all about her and see pictures of her

http://www.askmen.com/women/galleries/model/anna-nicole-smith/picture-2.html

It's always a shame when someone dies that lived a screwed up life, by choice ... I feel so bad for the baby left behind ... she's like a lottery ticket for someone if they can ever figure out who the father was ... sounds like she's been with quite a few men simultaneously ... but you know what, I'm more upset about OTHER news. People that gave their lives in IRAQ and elsewhere to keep us safe and free. Also political news that shapes our present and future concerns me ... it's a sad commentary on society to be so obsessed with this situation.

also profoundly WORTHLESS.

And I would never have thought it had no one mentioned it. Stern seems so loving to the child, and appeared devoted to Smith.

Now that the latest is that Anna Nicole left everything to her son and apparently did not change her will after he died, it will pass to his next of kin--which I suppose is his grandmother Virgie.

I doubt it; I think it will go to Anna Nicole's baby daughter. Most state probate statutes allow for inheritance by children born after the decedent made their will. The rationale is that the decedent intended for their child to inherit, even if they didn't get around to changing the will to include the new child.

But then the issue falls back on paternity. I know under Bahama's slender law there is apparently no procedure to challenge paternity--it is whatever the mother states on the birth certificate. But the estate will be probated in the US--California I assume. It will have to force the hand of Stern because I can't imagine a court in California not requiring a paternity test to decide who will be the guardian over this child's estate. At the moment the only uncontestable next of kin under US jurisdiction is Virgie.

You're right, Virgie is next of kin until the baby's paternity can be established. But that doesn't guarantee her or the baby's father (whoever he is) control of the estate. The executor has to be approved by the probate court. Someone who has shown a propensity to self-deal (e.g. Howard Stern) or who is not capable of managing a complex estate (Virgie, probably) might well not be approved. The estate may end up being administered by the public administrator of of the probate court. This will be an interesting one to watch, and I'm enjoying our discussion.

I just asked my mother (she's an attorney) about what would happen to Anna Nicole's estate. After she lectured me about wssting my time being intersted in it in the first place--she told me if the will were probated in Texas the estate would be divided between Daniel's hairs on the paternal and maternal sides. This would mean that half would go to Daniel's father and the other half would be divided between Virgie and Danielynn (if I read the law right a grandparent and a half sibling are considered heirs of co-equal relationship).
