I watched the show too, it was entertaining in the trainwreck sort of fashion. I'm not going to talk bad on the woman, she had a tragic life, I feel really bad about the baby though. I had hoped to see Anna Nicole recover from drugs and everything, but instead, this. Has the cause of death even been revealed yet?

Good riddance.

She needed to take Paris Hilton with her.

Wow, a little strong there, she wasn't one of my favourite people alive, but she did just have a daughter and I'm sad she'll never know her mother!!

I can’t say I had much of a reaction to it either. She didn’t represent anything positive to a woman that might have idolized her. Made a living through portrayal of her body. Married a rich tycoon for his money. At least she truly did love her kids. My only sympathy comes through the sad story that is the rest of her life.

Look at how messed up her son was. The daughter is probably better off.

That's not really for any of us to decide, my mother's not the model mother but I still wouldn't want to have grown up not knowing a mother!!

That doesn't mean her life would be better being raised by an unfit mother.

Anna's death just further fueled what was a great day. Not only did our country get to experience the passing of a waste of life, but The Police are getting back together and touring this summer. I celebrated on February 8th, and I feel sorry for those who didn't.

Are you guys serious? The mother of two children, one a newborn, just died. Her death wasn't personally anything to me, but to gloat about it is something I wouldn't expect from otherwise intelligent and decent people.
