Anna Nicole Smith Undressed
Vickie Lynn Marshall (born Vickie Lynn Hogan on November 28, 1967), better known as Anna Nicole Smith, is an American actress and model who first gained popularity as Playboy magazine's 1993 Playmate of the Year. Her career and public image subsequently suffered as her weight gain and bizarre antics were put on display in supermarket tabloids and in her short-lived reality television show. More recently, Smith slimmed down and became the spokesperson for a weight loss supplement.
Her highly publicized marriage to oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall, 63 years her senior, resulted in a lengthy and ongoing legal battle over his estate following his death. Her case, Marshall v. Marshall, reached the U.S. Supreme Court in February, 2006, on a narrow constitutional issue over the right of a federal judge to intervene in a state probate case. On May 1, 2006, Smith won the Supreme Court case 9-0, which boosts her chances of getting a larger share of her late husband's estate.
