You know, I never thought that I'd be writing this, much less typing that headline, but I actually feel kind of sorry for Anna. I mean, true, she was probably the most irritating public personlity to come out of the '90's, but recently I had come to feel almost sorry for the woman. It started with her son's death and I suppose it ends with her death. When her son died I felt the media just exploited her and family. Now, given she was, more or less, the high priestess of self-promotion, but her bizarre (probably alcohol fueled) behaviour was her doing. The media exploitation of her son's death was just cruel. She was clearly disraught about it and it actually seemed as if this was the first time she wanted to be left alone. And now she's dead, and it seems she never had a chance to redeem herself from the gold-digging, loopy media gadfly image she had. Maybe she really was just a lonely southern girl who's life had a few bizarre twists.
Wow...I never thought I'd eulogize Anna Nichole Smith.
