Anna Nicole's authorized biography yet to be written
You don't think we'd let Anna Nicole Smith rest just yet, did you? The New York Daily News says a new book in Smith's own words is on its way to shelves, if writer Joyce Wagner has anything to say about it. And boy does she ever.
Wagner's pitch is for a book based on interviews Wagner had with Smith going back to 1996, when the freshly rehabbed bombshell was looking to score a book deal to counter bills accrued after an $830,000 sexual harrassment lawsuit by her former nanny.
On tape, Smith recounted running away from home and being beaten by mama Virgie Arthur upon her return. "She started kicking me with her boot" and "hit me with a nightstick," Smith recalls. Wagner wouldn't go into detail on any sexual abuse, "but this book will explain a lot," she said. Well-played marketing, Joyce!
And as far as octogenarian hubby J. Howard Marshall's bedroom fitness is concerned: "We had sex a lot," Smith told Wagner. "He could not exactly satisfy me, which is to be expected. But he was very satisfied himself. That's really all that mattered to me. He satisfied me in other ways. He cared about me. He never looked down at me."
