“It’s not supposed to be funny. It just is” was the tagline for The Anna Nicole Show, a pseduo-reality series that followed Anna Nicole Smith‘s slow descent into obscurity. If someone had decided to sell the house before 2007, it would have been a barrel of laughs to view this place as the site of contrived shenanigans like Smith’s dating life and her feuds with interior decorator Bobby Trendy. As it is, since Smith’s unexplained death in 2007, it’s just sad.
That said, the show gained cult status among college fraternities, so there could be a drunken frat boy out there with $1.75 million to spare. The house is 4,700 square feet and has five bedrooms (including a deluxe master bedroom), 5.5 bathrooms, and a fitness center. Plus, every object that Smith’s miniature poodle Sugar Pie tried to have sex with!
Smith’s estate is handling the sale, and told TMZ that the money from the sale will go back into her estate. After all, her daughter Dannielynn just turned five and could use something from her mother besides a dubious legacy of fame and heartbreak.
