Pissing on her grave costs way too much money.

1. Saddam could always count on you for a little kindness and understanding. [1]

2. I don't believe this bluster of yours, I think deep down you can relate to this girl who obviously lived her whole life in serious emotional pain. Attacking her is your way of not dealing with these feelings of empathy. It is a great shame that no one could help her son Daniel; but her daughter still has a chance to become a happy, healthy adult. Perhaps more of a chance if, as you say, she is better off being raised by people other than her biological mother. But Anna Nicole didn't have to die for this to happen, and had she lived longer, she could have turned her life around and been reunited with her daughter.

I thinks its sad how people here are saying such awful things, did you people know her personally?

There are many more people who deserve these harsh words and I do not think Anna is one of them. Who are we to know what was doing on in her head? This thread should change direction as its becoming quite spiteful, I commend those who are showing some maturity.

I may not have liked her....but it's not like she spent her life killing children. I just hated seeing her on TV, so, i can't say she deserved to die. I just won't really miss her, thats all.

I think its horrible that people are saying bad things about a person who never really did anyone any harm. In fact, she was screwed over in life. She never really had a good life, grew up poor, husband dies, balloons up, fights depression, fights drug problems, son dies days after new daughter is born. You people should be ashamed of yourselves for bad mouthing someone who did absolutely nothing bad. Its not like she was popping pills to get high all the time, the lady was clinically depressed. Sure she is no role model, but what you people are saying makes you guys look even worse than her.

And by the way, im not a fan of her or anything, im just kind of sick from reading some of the stuff posted here about a person who didn't really do anything wrong. Hey i have an idea, lets go bash all the people who died in their prime, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Marilyn Monroe, they are all up and ready to take your sickening verbal abuse.

Wa-OW, I am shocked. Vickie Lynn Marshall, AKA Anna Nicole Smith, was a person. A person that none of you poo-flingers knew -a person whose dying has her husband groveling on the ground in tears. A person who will never fulfill a mother's role of raising her children, and experience the subsequent joy. Good Lord, you make it sound as if she's a character!

This reminds me of horror movies. How, like, MASSES of people line up in theaters to see people hacked to death and brutally murdered - pleasure in the dying of another person is a sign of (and, as the daughter of a respected psychologist, I can say this) SEVERE mental psychosis.

I'm especially disapointed in you, Ezekiel. Have some class < >

A better example would be how people would used to crowd around public executions in the town square.

As for Anna Nicole Smith. She's dead. Died at a young age. But she was quite a character. Hopefully she'll be remembered in some way or another by future generations.
