Our news is filled with the death of Ana Nicole Smith. Her trademark is the public exposure of her enlarged breasts. Her sexual escapades were proudly shared. Her son died of drug overdose and she appears to have done the same. Her little baby, worth millions, has had no less than five men claiming to be the father. Yet it almost every shot of Ana Nicole Smith, you see a beautiful cross hanging between her breasts. And her mind was on “Christian” truths. Before her death she was depressed, and said the reason was that she was afraid her son, who died a few months before from a drug overdose, was “lost somewhere in purgatory” and not yet in heaven.
