Anna Nicole Smith was a media force and modeling icon in the ’90s. But in the case of celebrity deaths, her accidental overdose at 39 was a tragedy that the press essentially said they saw coming. Some members of the media felt it was difficult to respect his star power. Now fans are pointing out uncomfortable looking interviews Howard Stern Show — and the press saga of Britney Spears — as reasons to demand justice for Smith more than 14 years after her death.
Anna Nicole Smith and the Media
Smith seemed to be wearing it all on his sleeve. The public knew that she had married an elderly billionaire and was pursuing a portion of the property she said had promised her before her death. The fact that she was the ’93 Playmate of the Year didn’t help her case with some viewers on the issue.
But if Smith’s words are true, many people misunderstood that her husband J. How was her relationship with Howard Marshall II. He once shared that, most importantly, he loved her and cared for her and her son. So, she said that she loves him in return.
Marshall didn’t give Smith what he said he had promised, so he took it legally. Fans remember that Smith was dubbed a gold digger by many sections of the media for this aspect of his life.
Larry Birkhead, who was in a relationship with Smith and is the father of his daughter, Danielle Birkhead, said he believed Smith’s love for Marshall was genuine. But he added that it was difficult for him to convince some people, and especially the media, because of their age difference.

Howard Stern put Smith in an uncomfortable position twice during a live interview. Both times Smith appeared embarrassed by the host’s antics. NS interviews are available Viewers are warned about explicit and sometimes abusive language as well as sexually suggestive content.
Shockingly, Stern appeared to be pressuring the model to allow private access to her body to someone who worked on the show named Benji. Smith looked terrified, but got up to go to a bathroom with Benji. He emerged and he happily revealed that he had “kissed a little.”
Benji said, to the shock of some fans, “Anna was nervous, so I didn’t want to force her into it.”
And how did Smith feel? “I was terrified,” she agreed softly in the background. But Stern and his companions were laughing so much, she could barely hear.

Howard Stern and his co-hosts openly discuss weight in a derogatory way
Before another visit, Stern and his team spoke openly about his weight before bringing Smith out for interviews. As the model emerged, Stern said, “Anna Nicole has never looked happier to be here.”
Smith sat down and said quietly that Stern was “a jerk.” His co-host, Robin Quivers, laughed when he was also called a “jerk” for sharing his hot take on Smith’s weight. “Oh, come on,” she said, seemingly dismissive.
Apparently, Smith was sitting backstage listening to jokes about him. He asked them seriously, “Why do you always call me fat all the time?”
Stern denied the allegations against Smith, but then asked him to come to the mass. He refused and offered money to buy something for his son. She also shared her belief that she was unaware of her weight based on the way she dressed.
Smith’s response – “I know I’m a grown woman. So what?” – It was definitely right. But that didn’t stop Stern from arguing with him about it.
