Default Anna Nicole... Behind the scenes

Behind the scenes of the saga that seems to never die... at least on ONE network.

Have you noticed all the network "entertainment news" shows have moved on to other stories, with the glaring exception of Anna Nicole Tonight, or should I say Entertainment Tonight....

They paid $4 million for exclusive access, and thus are fixated on this story. Of course they say theings like their cameras were "the only cameras to be "invited" inside the funeral" etc etc.... like McDonald's "invites" you to come and get a Big Mac...

They even had a rival reporter, a guest of the home-owner, kicked out to preserve their exclusivity.... they said she "was not on the list". Right.

Cynic, even before she died, ET and the Insider has been by their sides. And by paying them, they have given very biased information. Now as you say, it's old news, and what could heve been presented in one show, has become a dragged out week long affair

They will continue to drag it out until the next scandalous/sensational event, involving another self-promoting person, occurs.

Hey, did you hear that the astronaut, Lisa Nowak, was fired?

That was the hot topic prior Anna Nicole's death.

They have the internet in the afterlife? Otherwise, how do I let you know? I'd be DEAD!

It all depends on how "outrageously" you go! I'll be watching ET for the word. I'm sure they will know.

I think people have always been fascinated with silicon based life forms. Even after they're dead.

Take care,
Mike

The medical examiner just teased us with the observation that the results of Anna Nichole's autopsy will be "suprising" but then said it would still be a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

Have you seen the knot of the ME's head? Scary.

You'd think, being a doctor, he'd have something done about that. I happened to catch it the other day whilst surfing. Creepie.

I have been "into" this whole thing. Sadly it is like a soap opera, instead of a real person. As far as the Doctor with the formation on his head. On one of the blogs, someone said that he took the implants out, and now he can't find one of them. Now when I see this man on TV, I can't help but smile.

Today on the blogs was a lot of discussion about the cruise ships. The people in the Bahamas are very upset, because hundreds of Taxis are showing up at the cemetery, from the cruise ships. From the port, you can hire a cab to see her burial, and her house for $50.00.

Michael, Do you know her mom? Did you ever work with her?

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I happened to be in port in Nassau on the Friday she was buried. As most of you know, we seldom, if ever go ashore, but lots of the people on our cruise (Glory) did get to see the house, and the cemetary where she was put to rest. Most of them stated that they weren't charged any extra,,,the cab driver just offered to run them by those spots on the way to other places. I guess by now they've figured out that it's a good way to scam the cruisers out of a few more bucks.
