Anna Nicole:It's Not So Funny Now
She was the guiltiest of guilty pleasures, we watched her show and it was a holler,Anna Nicole Smith, looking like a balloon at the Macy's parade and the dysfunctional group around her. It was the ultimate show about nothing, much like the more successful "The Osborn's". It seems like everyone has had a laugh at Anna Nicole. She married a billionaire who's son was twice her age. Her court battles, her slurring at awards ceremonies. Yesterday Anna Nicole died suddenly at a Florida Hotel. It is indeed a tragedy that her family and friends must bear. It hits home with the fact that comedy about someone who needs help, who may have been able to get help, may not be all that funny.
