I told friends of mine months ago that if Anna Nicole didnt get help, she was going to die. I said this after I saw her on a televised awards show completly and uncontrollably "under the influence." .(As well as on other shows.) It didnt take a expert to see this. I was never a fan of hers, she seemed like she was not a nice person in person or on TV. However, her death is completely heartwrenching. She was admirable for the way she pursued and achieved success, especially since she came from meager financial beginnings. She did not deserve this early death. God bless Anna and her family.

I'd be curious to know which one of Virgie's 6 or 7 husbands made improper advances to Vicki Lynn that changed the direction of her life forever, and what are the odds that she will raise her granddaughter any better.

I DO NOT THINK VIRGIE SHOULD HAVE RIGHTS TO ANNAS REMAINS NOR HER CHILD

I think of it like other celebrities, they know what is going to come of the drug abuse, they know when it is close to danger and the ones around them see it, and talk to them about what they have to live for but they do not stop. Out of all the money she has been given from the rich old man, did she donate to any charity? none that I ever knew or read of. At least Elvis never forgot where he came from and gave to others, she wanted it all for just herself. As fdor Howard , its all a stupid act. I think the first one who claimed to be the father before her death is more like the one who fathered Dannylynn. What kind of life can he offer? Her mother now it has been said very clear she hated her mother, Why? what exact reasons did she claim to hate her? when did she decide this hate? what about other family members? was there contact there the past several years? What about her father and x-husband where are they at and have they stayed in contact? so many questions arent answered.

How rude, if you had followed her life you would see that she had a 'thing' for older men, who's to say she didn't go after her husband? How rude of you......Virgie is an honest woman and deserves her childs body and to be a part of her granddaughter's life.

Anna was involved with PETA (animals) and there are many reasons why Anna (or anyone else might 'hate' their mother). Wait around for the True Story of Anna Nicole's Life...it will be out soon. Based on Anna's words herself.

Her father hasn't been around since she was 2 y/o. Daniel's father, Billy Smith, was never a father to Daniel, just as Donald Hogan was never a father to Anna. Why should either of them beinvolved in anything? Oh, but they will be trying to cash in, too.

Lisa, don't pay any attention to Susan....poor girl spews venom and has respect for people who make fools of themselves. I think you are probably right about Virgie.

I am from Mexia and from what I can see no one down here really cared. I hear people saying she was a whore and slut and all she wanted was money. I truly don't agree with the comments, I think that she was very smart about the way she took care of things as fas as raising her son! She did what she could so that he could sleep and have food in his tummy! Now as far as the drug issues I am not going to comment on! I wasnt there I dont know what was going on in their minds and I dont really know what happened in her childhood as far as the truth. I know that she was a funny sweet loving mother and very thoughtful!She had a mother who came into the picture when her son Daniel died and then again when she has past. Why, I dont know, Virgie knew she couldnt stand her and yet she tries to bring her back to Texas instead of keeping her with her son!What kind of mother is that? I am glad she is laid to rest with her son and Virgie should be a shamed of herself. SHame on yOU!!!!

Is it true that Virgie had 6 or 7 husbands? This amazes me..... I also wouldn't like her to raise Ann's baby Daniel.....

why is vrigie sticking her nose into anna smith buiness now. Does she want to make money or what? What is she doing running around with splash reports? Maybe some one should dig into her past and see why she chose to leave her job when she is only 55 years old. I feel sorry for dannielynn cause she is going to grow up with out her mother and now you vrigie is going around talking about howard like he is a pice of crap. I don't see him giving out reports or making false statemnets to tne news. Why in the world would you walk on your own daughter grave?

That alone showed the world what kind of mother she was and is. It showed the world what she is really all about... The look on her face alone while she was shoveling the dirt to the grave showed hatered amongst many other hateful emotions a mother wouldn't have towards her child, but this creature did.

I think that Virgie is too old to raise another child, no matter what her character may be. Dannielynn needs to be raised by a parent, not a grandparent. Of course, the woman raising her now is probably no younger than Virgie.

Yes Virgie is probably too old...and too damn fat! Now I'm not bashing overweight people. There's just some things an elderly overweight person can't do...like running after an active toddler. Virgie was just about out of breath shovelling that dirt, and was sweatting like a boor-hog!

Obese persons are more apt to have high-blood pressure, heart failure, and definitely breathing problems.

So people please don't take this as an attempt to discriminate against those of us who are obese. It's just my opinion, and that's the purpose of these boards.

I believe and am definately of the opinion that Anna was abused physically and sexually as a child--its their family secret.

As one therapist said no one is dysfunctional as Anna cause she had a good upbringing and home.

None of us, no, not any of us are better than another person. If I had good parents and a good home and a good start in life and someone else did not then they are better than me for surviving what I did not have to.

You're "opinion" is embarassingly superficial. How sad for you. Perhaps with each shovel, the reality that Virgie was covering her child was increasingly upsetting to her.

Anyone who has carried a baby can only imagine how horrible it would be to lose a child. And whether that child is a minor or an adult and whether you are close or apart, there is a connection and there is the finality of death that will cause labored breathing as well issues.

Your opinion shows how shallow you are. I'm not a Virgie fan at all, but your comments show a lack of humanity. Any mature person won't be a fan of your bovine behavior, "Faye."

I've been reading the responses and hesitating to say more because of a comment by Lisa about my rudeness. First of all, I wonder about the purpose of these boards--is it perhaps to discuss issues and stop hiding them as "dirty little secrets." Jessica Lunsford is proof that we need to stop covering for sex offenders. His (Couey's) own family knew what he was doing. I believe Anna Nicole was abused emotionally, physically, and sexually because of her lifestyle and actions. I do not think the girl was raised to feel loved and good about herself. A predator walked through my family for 83 years. Everyone covered his dirty little secret, including his wife and victims, and he damaged 3 generations of little girls. It was not until he was dead a couple of years that my daughter came forward with what their loving Grandpa had done. I watch her struggle through life now trying to just survive this ultimate betrayal. If my speaking my opinion helps in some small way, you go ahead and call me rude.

Not every bad person you meet in life was a victim. Some people are just no damn good.
Anna was a known liar. Not only did she accuse her mother of bad things, but all her siblings as well.
Did it happen? I don't know.
...but whether it did or not, it is no excuse for her actions. She was worthless.
