I always liked her. I didn’t like the substance abuse. She seems to have been an intelligent person with some unquenchable emotional need. About this video — I’ve read more than a few obnoxious comments today on the internet about this taped Anna Nicole Smith appearance from 1999 — I think the video is touching. Her moments of naive clarity were ridiculed, it seems even moreso than her public moments of confusion, substance-induced or otherwise. Her death yesterday leaves me wondering just where anyone was who loved her in her recent media years, why she appeared riddled with personal doubts and insecurity as she also erred in trusting the wrong companion.
I hope that Anna Nicole Smith is in Heaven this night. My prayers are for her: may her soul rest in peace.
