oh i still really miss the kooky yet lovable anna nicole smith (i LOVED her) i can’t believe she’s been dead for over three years now – time sure does fly! since her estate probably won’t ever see a dime from her old man hubby j. howard marshall II – it looks like larry birkhead has turned to auctioning off some of anna’s belongings in las vegas (250 pieces in all) to help pay the bills plus he has to support his and anna’s daughter (proceeds will go to a charity (not named) as well as a trust fund for dannielynne) i’m not overly crazy about mr. birkhead but he hasn’t been as big of a media whore as i thought he was going to be and he appears to be doing a decent job of being dad – we all do what we can to get by, right? if selling some of her stuff is going to generate some extra cash – then why not? (the weird thing is he’s doing the auction with her lawyer howard k. stern – they never appeared to get along but i guess things have changed) popbytes over & out for tonight … xoxo
