Anna Nicole Smith

Reality TV star and former Playboy model, Anna Nicole Smith, died this afternoon after being discovered unconscious in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. She was 39 years old. Anna Nicole’s son, Daniel Wayne Smith, died at age 20 just days after the birth of Smith’s daughter five months ago. Pathologist Cyril Wecht said a lethal dose of methadone and antidepressants caused cardiac dysrhythmia, leading to his death. The cause of Anna Nicole’s death is not yet known.

If you ask me, she could have been suffering from post-partum depression compounded by the loss of her son five months ago just days after giving birth. Her depression could have lead to drug abuse and this could be another tragic overdose. We won’t know the details until the autopsy is conducted later this week. Her death leaves many items up in the air. A paternity battle over her five month old daughter and the legal battle over her late husband’s estate.

Her lawyer and widowed husband, Howard K. Stern, will have his hands full taking care of a baby and fighting two different court cases, all while grieving her death. Can you imagine having a paternity battle while your wife is dead!? Sad.
