Nearly five years after her untimely death, Anna Nicole Smith's life will be depicted in a made-for-TV movie on Lifetime.
"The Anna Nicole Story" will take us back to Anna's (real name: Vicky Lynn Hogan) early years before she rocketed to fame after appearing as a Playboy Playmate and in her E! reality show, "The Anna Nicole Show."
She passed away back in 2007 and today (June 23), the US Supreme Court ruled against Anna Nicole Smith's heirs, bringing an end to their $88-million claim to the estate of her late husband, J. Howard Marshall.
According to breaking reports, a legal battle first began in 1995 when the 89-year-old oil magnate died and Smith, who was 27 years old at the time, discovered that her late husband had left his entire fortune - estimated at $1.6 billion - to his son Pierce Marshall, despite the fact that, according to Smith, J. Howard Marshall had promised to leave her $300 million.
Finally bringing an end to the drawn-out drug cases surrounding Anna Nicole Smith's death, her ex-boyfriend Howard K. Stern has been found guilty of felony charges.
Following 58 hours of deliberation, the Los Angeles jury reached its verdict with Smith's boyfriend Stern, as well as her doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich, all having been accused of illegally providing drugs to the late pin-up girl.
