I didn’t say it looked good necessarily. This is no “Behind the Candelabra.” But how did Lifetime manage to get real actors like Adam Goldberg and Martin Landeau to appear in their version of the pinup’s life (she’s been dead since 2007)? Oh hell, who am I kidding? I’ll totally be watching on June 29, if only for the scene where Anna Nicole (played by Agnes Bruckner) puts on the clown makeup…
Last time we heard from little Danielynn, she was just Anna Nicole Smith’s toddler daughter in the middle of a crazy custody battle between two of Smith’s former lovers, Larry Birkhead (who won) and Howard K. Stern. Now six-year-old Danielynn Birkhead is following in her mom’s

Is there any pleasure guiltier than Lifetime Television for Women? It’s so pleasingly masochistic — I mean, is there anywhere else on TV where women are so often murdering or being murdered? And we couldn’t be happier to hear that Lifetime is making a new movie about the fabulous life and times of Anna Nicole Smith.

We created a chart with all of our top picks and the likelihood that they might actually play ANS. Check out our handy guide and tell us who you think should play her in the comments.
Hollywood is filled with blondes — both bottled and born — doing their best Marilyn Monroe imitations. Courtney Stodden, teen bride, was just the latest in a long, sordid trail of celebs to break out the pin curls and red lipstick when she did a photo shoot as the star in Hollywood this week. I’m pretty sure Norma Jean is rolling over in her grave. Seriously: stick a fork in this look ’cause it’s done.
Described as a cross between “comedy” and “heart-wrenching horror,” a new opera, “Anna Nicole,” opened in London last night. It’s about Anna Nicole Smith exploring her choices as a single mother until she runs out of options. With lyrics like “I want to blow you all” and “It’s the sound of a Jimmy Choo shoe on a red carpet” how could it not be a crowd pleaser? “Raunchy,” “convincing,” and “absolutely incredible” were some of the adjectives used by audience members to describe their “Anna Nicole” experience. How do I get tickets? [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
