Few things are more compelling and captivating than celebrity romance.
It takes people, idols, the top of the top of entertainment and fashion whose job is to be seen by the masses, and the tumultuous landscape of personal relationships that most people wouldn’t want to be printed all over national magazines.
Celebrity gossip is an industry of its own, a branch of journalism that is as reviled as lucrative. Few celebrities churned the well of entertainment interest quite as Anna Nicole Smith did.
Nearly everyone knows about Anna and her rocky life, living fast and dying young, where she went from one strange and rocky relationship to another. She’s also remembered for her body
She was the pretty woman of the early to mid-90s, a name synonymous with sexual energy, which struck the media as odd when she decided to marry an 89-year-old billionaire just a year before he died.
10 Getting Started
Anna Nicole Smith was born Vickie Lynn Hogan in Houston, Texas. Her early family life made her no stranger to family fallouts.
Her parents divorced when she was only two, and this was after her mother Virgie Mae Arthur had young Anna when she was only 16 and hardly ready to start a family. Her mother remarried to a different man with the last name Hart.
It wasn’t until 9th grade when she went to live with her aunt in Mexia, Texas, and shortly after that, she dropped out of school during her repeated sophomore year to get married.
9 Ms. Smith
Anna, then Vickie, dropped out of school while she was working a part-time job to marry her then sweetheart Billy Wayne Smith, who was a cook at the same restaurant.
They had a son, Daniel, and their relationship lasted longer than that of her parents. They stayed married even as the two went through their usual rows and domestic arguments.
Seven years later, however, they divorced. The cause was revealed to be a flirtatious affair she had while working as a strip club dancer.
