YOU PROBABLY THINK YOU KNOW ALL THERE IS TO KNOW. ANNA NICOLE SMITH LOST HER SON. SHE ACCIDENTALLY OVERDOSED. SHE WAS A DRUG ADDICT. YOU DON'T KNOW A THING... She was famous for being famous- Americana at its Scarlet Letter-wearing best. A bodacious young girl from Texas , Anna remade herself into the centerfold of the world. She was a "dumb blonde," a stripper, a Playboy Playmate, who boldly took her case against her billionaire husband's family all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her tragic life and untimely death evoke an odd mix of fascination, shock, and dismay. And through it all, there still exists a voracious thirst to discover more about who she actually was...and how shereallydied. In a book that is sure to surprise even the most avid pop culture junkies, Rita Cosby blows the lid off this astounding story. After an in-depth investigation, this is the definitive journalistic account of the Anna Nicole Smith saga-with unearthed secrets and explosive, never-before-told information.
