Anna Nicole Smith’s burial may (it is to be fervently hoped) put a merciful end to the unseemly hype about her life and death. Let her memory rest in peace now, with hope that this troubled woman found grace with her Creator, who knows the state of her heart.
Don’t worry, though, fans of the tony and tawdry. There are plenty more American bimbos to ogle: Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears, just to name a few. And there will be many more. Our fascination with the tramp appears unlikely to dissipate anytime soon.
