    HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Anna Nicole Smith, the former Playboy playmate whose bizarre life careened from marrying an octogenarian billionaire to the untimely death of her son, died Thursday after collapsing at a South Florida hotel, one of her lawyers said.

    Smith, 39, collapsed and was unresponsive while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino, said the attorney, Ron Rale. She was rushed to a hospital.


    "She checked in Monday at 8 p.m. as a guest. She was due to check out tomorrow," said Danielle Giordaano, a spokeswoman for the hotel.
    Smith had been a tabloid staple even before she became Playboy's playmate of the year in 1993. Readers were fascinated by her bombshell good looks, her marriage to an elderly billionaire and subsequent court fight over his estate, her weight fluctuations, and last year, the sudden death of her 20-year-old son, Daniel Smith.


    A former topless dancer, she made her name squeezing into Guess jeans. She resembled the late actress Marilyn Monroe, a similarity played up in her Guess magazine ads, billboards and department store displays.


    In 1994, she married 89-year-old oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II, the head of oil-based Koch Industries, which is part of a family fortune worth at least $400 million.


    He died in 1995, setting off a feud with her former stepson, E. Pierce Marshall, over whether she had a right to his estate.


    A federal court in California awarded Smith $474 million in a complicated legal twist that began after she declared bankruptcy. That was later overturned.
    But in May, the U.S. Supreme Court revived her case, ruling that she deserved another day in court in her battle with her former stepson.
    The justices said only that federal courts in California could deal with her case despite a Texas state court ruling that Marshall was the sole heir to the estate.


    Then, the stepson died June 20 at age 67. But the family said the court fight would continue.
    Daniel Smith died Sept. 10 in his mother's hospital room in the Bahamas, just days after she gave birth to a daughter.


    An American medical examiner hired by the family, Cyril Wecht, said he had methadone and two antidepressants in his system when he died. Low levels of the three drugs interacted to cause an accidental death, Wecht said.
    Meanwhile, the paternity of her now 5-month-old daughter remained a matter of dispute.


    She was born Vickie Lynn Hogan on Nov. 28, 1967, in Houston, one of six children of Donald Eugene and Virgie Hart Hogan.
    She married Bill Smith in 1985, giving birth to Daniel before divorcing two years later.

    Oh well...

    I am sorry for her family, but I thought she was an idiot.

    Wierd. Both Mother and Son going out within a year of each other, probably via similar modus operandi. Sounds like drugs were involved.

    Hot perhaps before she gained 150 extra pounds.

    Anybody want to guess how long it is going to be before the conspiricy theories start up? With something like half a billion dollars at stake, it's bound to happen.

    Yeah, never liked her myself. I would generally agree with the overdose theory as it is logical...

    I've never been a great fan of her.

    I've checked on TheSmokingGun.com for her autopsy report. I didn't find it, but for the ones that might interrest, here is what I found.

    I would say it's probably an OD. That seems to be the general consensus of everyone I talk to.

    There can't be an autopsy report out already. It takes time for that and all the toxicological tests to be done. It will be some time before they have any determination.

    Yeah but the family will do everything they can to keep it from being released to the public. Ofcourse some tabloid will pay some worker there a nice fee to smuggle it out.

    It's pretty tragic what fame does to more-or-less ordinary people...
