The sad saga of Anna Nicole Smith continues. War has broken out between Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern, and former news anchor Rita Cosby. Her new book, Blonde Ambition, accuses the two of being gay lovers, and cutting a deal giving custody of baby Dannielynn to Birkhead, and making Stern executor of Smith's estate. And what about that Texas doctor who is trying to release a video documenting Anna undergoing cosmetic surgery? Everyone is trying to jump on the bandwagon, so it is refreshing to report that a new 2-hour movie about Anna Nicole, produced by Nasser Entertainment, is really a tribute to the tragic beauty. This film focuses on the positive side of her life, not on the trash.
Works by Picasso, Warhol, Chagall, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon (to name a few) were up for auction to help the cause. Some of the celebrated guests included Matthew Perry (Friends), Lisa Edelstein (House) and Paul Allen (Co-Creator of Microsoft). Awards were presented to Merck & Co., California State Assemblyman Mervyn M. Dymally, Janet & Tom Sexton and Jade Brenner-Katz for their contributions to support those in need.
