The - Not So Glamorous - Life of Anna Nicole Smith


Hey guys!

When we think about Playboy and Playmates, one of the main ideas that we have is that their lives are full of beauty and glamour.

Or at least most of them.

Today I bring you a Playmate who's life was more of a crazy nightmare, than a glamorous ride. That girl was Anna Nicole Smith.

Anna Nicole Smith - birth name: Vickie Lynn Hogan - was born on November 28, 1967 in Houston, Texas. She was a model, an actress, and television personality, and she was also compared to Hollywood's gourgeous Marilyn Monroe (ironic to say the least).

Anna won the title of Playmate of the year in 1993, which gave her even more notoriety.

She was also married twice, the first one 3 years after she dropped out of High School, which ended up in divorce. The second one - and the most controversial - with the octogenarian J. Howard Marshall, that many people speculated she only married him for his wealth, which she had to prove it was false. After Marshall's passing, Anna had a long battle with the law due to the legal estate and Marshall's will.

Anna also had 2 children: Daniel Smith, and 10 year old Dannielynn Birkhead.

It is important to mention Daniel Smith, since it was the beginning of the downward spiral in the life of the model. Daniel was a heroin user and died in September 2006 after an overdose on painkillers, due to drug use and chronical pain.

Anna Nicole Smith, like her son, was also known to be a drug user, even though she often denied, like she did in many interviews. However on 2004’s Billboard Awards, she presented Kanye West’s musical moment completely drunk, as you can see below: 

After her son’s death, her decay became more and more noticeable. According Howard Stern – Smith’s old time boyfriend: she was devastated with her son’s death and she was ready to go down with him -, even though at the time of his death she already had the new-born Dannielynn.

On February 8th 2007, Anna Nicole was found dead at the age of 39 in room 607 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. A 911 call was made that stated that Anna would not respond to the CPR that was being made.

She died in the result of mixed prescription drugs on her system. Her funeral had to be close casket due to the fact that her body was decomposing faster than it was supposed to.
She also shares the grave with her beloved son, Daniel.

Anna was pretty troubled. It is believed that she had a pharmacy worth of medication on the suite that she was found dead. 

She also fell onto the pool once while intoxicated, but she was rescued on time, and survived from a drowning.

Also, there's a theory that the lawyer - and Anna's lover - Howard Stern was present in both Daniel's and Anna's death, leading many people to believe that he wanted Anna to be dead, and that he should be accounted from being present... Overall it was a shady situation.

Even after her death, her daughter Dannielynn, who was 5 months old at the time of her mother’s death, became the heiress to Smith’s estate evaluated on 700.000$. But there was a huge lawsuit fight for the confirmation of the parternity.

And there you have it.
Sometimes the lives that you wish for, is not at all that glamour and fun.

This week I want to present you a murder case that happened a few years ago, and in my opinion, it's pretty creepy.

Let's go!

The Hello Kitty Murder was a 1999 case in which a 23 year old girl known as Ah Map was kidnapped, tortured and eventually killed in an apartment in Hong Kong. The torture period was extended for a month.

Ah Map met the 34 year old Chan Man-lok in 1997, at one of the various brothels she worked in. He became a regular client, but had violent tendencies when he was on one of his many methamphetamine binges. She also made the mistake of stealing his wallet. She paid back the money, and…

If you are a horror movie fan, you will definitely know this movie. Considered a masterpiece by many, and by some the scariest movie ever made. In 1973, 'The Exorcist' made its appearance, full of gore scenes and heavy suspense. Each person that watched it didn't know what happened behind the scenes.

The Exorcist is based off a real life event. William Blatty (the author of the novel), was inspired by a real exorcism that happened with a boy called Roland Doe. The exorcism was performed by catholic priests at Georgetown University Hospital, but they had to stop when Rolland managed to get free from the bed strains. Dur…

Curse of the Red Room - A Japanese Urban Legend

Hello my friends!

Today I decided to bring you one of my personal favourite topics: Asian urban legends.
What a best way to start your week than to read a great urban legend from Japan.
I will probably talk about this urban legends in the future, so if you like this post, smash that +1 button and share this with your friends!
Now enjoy this story and have fun.

Japanese urban legends don't involve only monsters or even paranormal forces. Oh no, my friends, this is an urban legend that will make you feel afraid of your own computer.
What is the Red Room? Apparently is an internet pop-up that announces your forthcoming death, and you can do nothing to block it, since the pop-up blocker doesn't work. 
According to my research, if you are chosen by the Red Room to be it's next victim, what you can do best is to write a good and beautiful goodbye letter to the ones you love and pray (for the ones that have faith, or whatever) because death will come shortly afterwards.

The pop-up appea…
