I don't care about Anna Nicole Smith

February 9, 2017 6:04pm CST
So today is the 10th anniversary of the day Anna Nicole Smith died. I knew that first thing this morning when I woke up. How did I know? No, I was not a fan.. I barely knew who she was before she died. I knew she'd been in a movie or two and was once a big name.. beyond that I knew very little, until she died. Then her image, her life, her child, everything was blasted everywhere.. and I felt like screaming. I felt like screaming how much I didn't care, how nobody should care.. How can I be so callous about a person's life?? Because the woman who raised me, who was essentially my mother, died 2 days before Anna Nicole Smith. To me that was far more important. Why should some celebrity's death be more important than the single most important person in my life? To this day I can't stand to hear anything about Anna Nicole Smith. To me she's a nobody, but my mom was everything. It probably wouldn't affect me much if another celebrity died on the anniversary of my mother's death.. it doesn't hurt quite so much now. But I was so emotional and raw 2 days after losing my mom.. and all I heard and saw was the media portraying Anna Nicole Smith.. Did you lose a loved one around the same time as a celebrity died? If so, do you feel the same way about that celebrity as I feel about Anna Nicole? Link to my post about my mom's death:
When I was young I grew up in 2 different homes. Not because my parents were divorced.. but because I had a mother that didn't care, so a family friend took me...

I know what you mean. The press should just leave her to rest in peace, its awfully upsetting to see the things that they put up on the television about how she acted when you are grieving a real live good human being. Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson both passed away a few days before my Dad did. My Dad was a regular man and didn't get on television or have a fan club outside of his family and friends. I felt him with me this week, and its been over 7 years. My heart goes out to you, I hope that you can think of the sweet memories of your Second Mom and hold on to those to ease your pain.

@katsmeow1213 And although I never mentioned it, he passed away on July 4th. Our daughter's anniversary is coming up on March 2nd, and my heart is starting to feel that, I hate this time of the year, it can be so painful. We all need a nice warm spring to hurry up and come our way and take away our cold feelings of grief.

@katsmeow1213 Yes it does. And although we don't celebrate July 4th, our country's birthday is the 1st, so it was close enough.

I don't blame you for feeling that way. When my mother passed away, I was such a basket case, that to this day I can't remember anything other than that awful day.

I got really into an online game and spent all my time playing that damn game. I was a zombie for 2 months just staring at my computer screen avoiding the entire world.

@katsmeow1213 We didn't have a computer when my mother passed away. I'm sure be both felt like our world exploded.

@katsmeow1213 Some people are like that. At least it's helping him now. Perhaps when he is older, he'll slow down.

I agree your mother was far more important than this celebrity (or any celebrity really) . . . but I can see how you have to deal with that date association. Anna who.

I'm sorry you feel this way. I've never heard of Anna Nicole Smith but then there are many 'known' people I've never heard of.

She wasn't really famous for having talents. She married a billionaire, had a ton of plastic surgery.. and just ended up being famous for her looks.
