The Chicago Tribune reports her death in a Hotel Room.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Anna Nicole Smith, the pneumatic blonde whose life played out as an extraordinary tabloid tale -- Playboy centerfold, jeans model, bride of an octogenarian oil tycoon, reality-show subject, tragic mother -- died Thursday after collapsing at a hotel. She was 39.

She was stricken while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and was rushed to a hospital. Edwina Johnson, chief investigator for the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office, said the cause of death was under investigation and an autopsy would be done on Friday.

Just five months ago, Smith's 20-year-old son died suddenly in the Bahamas in what was believed to be a drug-related death.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Sounds like she was someone destined to live a short tragic life, apparently
The sudden death of Smith came just five months after her 20-year-old son, Daniel Smith, died in the Bahamas which happened three days after the birth of her daughter.

Also according to Dan Whitcomb in Los Angeles

She grew up emulating screen legend Marilyn Monroe.
She met elderly oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall while dancing at a Houston strip club and married him in 1994, when she was 26 and he was 89.
Marshall died the following year and Smith spent much of the following decade battling members of his family over his estate. In May 2006 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Smith could pursue her case in federal court. Smith, who modelled Guess jeans, was named Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Year in 1993 and had film roles the following year in "The Hudsucker Proxy" and "Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult."
I cannot say I recognise her but her life had tragedy stamped all over it

I really didn't know much about her until the TV series, she was a Jade Goody type character, driven, but not all that bright.

Whether she deserved $400m plus inheritance after a year's marriage is something for the courts to work out, but I would guess that she made an old man very happy in the final year of his life;)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Are you talking about the coroner ?, as it is likely to take up to five weeks of examination before he can release (the body)

(I'll get my coat)
