Tabloid Whore!



So pictures of Anna Nicole Smith with her newborn baby and late son Daniel have surfaced on the internet and they are heartbreaking. Getty Images had a bidding war for them and In Touch magazine reportedly got their sticky hands on the rights and are rumored to have shelled out over $300k for the shots. According to AP reports, Pathologist Cyril Wecht who performed the second autopsy said Daniel had low amounts of a "prescribed anti-depression medication in him and he was being treated for depression that began about four to six weeks earlier." "Wecht's autopsy ruled out several natural causes — including heart disease, stroke or a "congenital anomaly" — as well as foul play. Investigators have said they did not find evidence of drugs or obvious signs of a crime." He also added that there was "no evidence that he died from a "suicidal overdose" and that Daniel's depression "had to do with a girlfriend." Wecht did not know if the prescribed medication played a part in Daniel's death and is still awaiting toxicology test results to determine the exact cause.
As I said, the photos are heartbreaking, especially one I saw of Daniel holding his baby sister. Many of you may have already seen the pictures on other websites, but the idea of putting them up here makes me feel dirty for some reason. I mean, I know I put a lot of crap up on Tabloid Whore, but sometimes you have to draw the line, y'know? But of course, for those of you interested, I am happy to provide you with a link to Defamer who has the pictures for everyone to gawk over at their leisure.

Glad you didn't. I already felt like an asshole looking at them on other sites (No, I did not go seek them out)

At least you can say their last few days together were happy ones. Anna got to share this special time with her son and one day she will cherish these photos.

this is SO weird TW. I was just thinking to myself if there WERE pictures available of the baby would I even want to look? I mean, is that showing any kind of respect to all those involved? WEIRD

Anna is lucky to have these pictures though. Daniel reportedly came in late (around 11pm) on the 9th and was found dead on the 10th. For that short time, for there to have been pictures taken is very lucky. That little baby will have them to treasure when she gets older.

I don't know who leaked them but if it was not Anna's decision to have them out there, the person should be up for a public hanging.

i agree with amy. the pictures are a blessing, if not now, in years to come. for anna nicole and for her little girl.

i didn't feel badly looking at them. i guess i should question my values (but then, i am shallow and overpaid, and do worry about armpit stains of the rich and famous). seriously, it's the presentation that matters. TW wrote about the tragedy with respect, adding a couple links. the other sites are more blase and disrespectful, at least in the captions.

we don't know who is getting the money, anyway. if it's not someone in the Smith circle, i imagine the hospital would have hell to pay. especially since the island doesn't want to taint or influence jurors before next month's trial.

I agree with Amy, hang the f_ck who leaked them. It had to be someone close to her, right? I mean, who took them? 5:02, maybe, no hopefully, he just had jet lag. Just trying to give the benefit of the doubt at this sad time.

I thought someone bought them for a huge sum of money. Did I misunderstand? I'm asking cuz d mumsie said no made a profit so now I'm a bit confused. They are sweet pics though and someday the baby will be happy to have them.
