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.
What you said is so heart breaking and I feel for you and your family. Because I am a survivor of the same exact situaton your daughter went through, and maybe Anna herself went through similar abuse, I have to say, you should be able to voice your opinions becauce not only the person that was abuse but the whole family suffer's along with them through life.
And it does help to speak of it, I did not speak of the horror that happened to me for 20 some years, and when I finaly did, what a relief, it was the best thing I ever did, and probably saved my life....

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.
Unless we get the opportunity to walk in Virgie's footsteps we never will know what happened or why she did what she did. All of this talk is just speculation. I think they will write a few books about mother and daughter, and unless you were there, you will not know which to believe. I'm sure some of Virgies relatives know what was going on. They are the only ones who know the truth of it. Virgie may regret some things she did but now she has to do what she will, because its her daughter and grandaughter in the news.

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."
Embarrassingly superficial??? Did I embarrass you? No one would have ever known it had you not opened up your big mouth.

Lack of humanity, bovine behavior? Don't you think you're reading a little more into it than was intended?

If you'll read my post you'll maybe see that I was referring to "those of US who are obese"...

Doesn't matter anyway...I'll settle for the "immature" fans, they seem to be very abundant in this forum.

I'm so glad that you all are so perfect in life that you are able to judge and make convictions of others....have you walked in their shoes? Whether it be Anna, Vergie, Daniel, etc....don't assume you know everything. Do the people in your life know every single good or bad experience you've had in your life? I think not. In this day and time, entertainment is fueled by gossip. I grew up in Mexia and half the stuff I've read and seen is far from true. If the media can fabricate the stories they have of Mexia and the community thus far, I can only imagine the exagerations of Anna's life.
She's still a human-being and a mother. Ler her rest in peace.

Yes, I do believe that Anna's mother knew what was happeneing when Anna was being sexually abused by step father, etc. Virgie chose NOT to believe her own daughter...now she regrets it. Virgie thinks she can REDEEM HERSELF with this precious little girl, Dannilyn. I say No, hell No, she had her chance and she blew it!!! She needs to go take some Trimp Spa or something!!!

Not ALL stepfathers abuse the children. No one knows if Virgie knew, or chose not to believe. Do you know the family personally ? I read in a story that Virgies brother and his wife helped raise Anna, how do you know it wasn't her uncle, or some neighbor or some man who lived down the street from them ??? Good Grief !!!! Trimp Spa (heh heh )

Anna told so many lies that it is hard to know when, if ever, she told the truth. I saw the youtube.com video in which she talked about how she lived the Christian life because Jesus was her Lord and Savior. Hello? Not quite, Missy.
I think she would say almost anything to make herself look good or to gain sympathy.
I have no doubt she lacked self-esteem and somehow had a moral chip or two missing. Maybe she was abused as a child.
But it is a leap to think that Virgie knew all about it, could have stopped it, etc. Anna never even said in that interview who abused her, did she?
Oh yes she said her daddy (probably step-daddy), her brother...and her Mama beat her, and I got the impression that her Mama KNEW about the abuse.

I'm not sure which interview, but I'm referring to the one where she said her Mama had the nerve to come on Daniel's birthday to visit his grave. Anna said for her to keep her fat ass away from there, that she wasn't there when he was younger. Oh shoot, I don't remember the exact words. sorry.

But now that I think about it...Anna looked really f...ed up in the video, and she was also crying.
But you guys are right, none of us know what really happened.

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.
Get your facts straight, Vicki kept Daniel away from Bill Smith and his family, but he was still good enough for her to use his last name. Daniel should of had that right to see his father and Grand Parents if he chose to. Bill Smith would never "try to cash in" he's not that type of person, all he ever wanted was his son...she's the one who kept them apart. THis is from someone who's been knowing Bill Smith and his family since he was a young boy. As a matter of Fact, Bill is not in good shape now for the simple reason of emptyness in his heart all these years, you people can say what ever you want to about Bill Smith, you dont know the facts, I KNOW that Bill is in the shape he is in now because of missing his little boy all these years, he has been a severly depressed man because of her, so bad that it has taken over his life! HE hasnt had a life in years! To put it bluntly, Bills life ended the day she took Daniel away, thats the honest to Gods truth!

So Anna Nicole and Howard K planned to keep Dannielynn away from Larry. They planned a life of luxury in the Bahamas, only they did not forsee what would upset those plans, tragedy.
