Aside from being a famous sex symbol, Anna Nicole Smith (better known under this name) was a model, actress and television personality. She rose to popularity after becoming the 1993 Playmate of the Year in Playboy.
Anna, born and raised in Texas, has represented clothing companies including Guess jeans and Lane Bryant. She also starred in her very own reality show on TV, The Anna Nicole Show.
Anna’s real name is Vickie Lynn Marshall after her highly publicized marriage to J. Howard Marshall, an oil business executive and business tycoon, 63 years her senior. That marriage resulted in speculation that she was up for his money, which she denied. In effect following the death of her husband, she had a long-winded legal battle over a share of his estate; her case, Marshall v. Marshall, even entered the U.S. Supreme Court.
She died at age 39, allegedly as a result of an overdose of prescription drugs. RIP Anna Nicole Smith.
