Goodbye, Vicky Lynn

Anna Nicole Smith is dead. Apparently she was found unconscious in her hotel room, was given CPR and taken to the hospital, but has been declared dead.

Anna Nicole (born Vicky Lynn Hogan) has been an interesting pop culture story for over a decade. She followed up being named Playmate of the Year by marrying a billionaire oil tycoon who was about to croak and has been fighting for his fortune ever since; she ballooned in size and starred in her own reality television show, in which she was barely ever coherent, always appeared strung out on drugs, and her teenaged son appeared to be the most stable person in her life; she lost a ton of weight through TrimSpa (although she and the company were sued this week for false advertising); and her son ODed days after her new daughter was born, with the birth resulting in a paternity battle between her former lover and her attorney.

It all seems so very sad.

I really can't believe it. Bailey and I were sitting in the departure lounge in the Yangon airport today and saw something about Anna Nicole and death and assumed that there was something new about her son. In other news, while difficult to find, American pop culture isn't impossible to locate in the Republic of Myanmar.
