'The Anna Nicole Story' Promises Everything From Pill-Popping to Pole Dancing
Just six years after Smith died at age 39, Lifetime — the network that stole 89 minutes of your life with Liz & Dick — is taking on her true story: how Vicky Lynn Hogan, a plainly pretty small-town Texan girl, shot to stardom as Anna Nicole Smith, the bodacious, busty Playboy pinup and model.
The made-for-TV movie promises to pull back the curtain on Smith's on-camera glamour to reveal the real price she paid for fame: from alcoholism and drug addiction, to loss of love, legal drama and, for some strange reason, a face-full of clown makeup.
The Anna Nicole Story, starring Agnes Bruckner (24, Private Practice) as Smith, Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan, A Beautiful Mind) as her attorney-turned-companion Howard K. Stern, and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Crimes and Misdemeanors) as her money-bags husband J. Howard Marshall, debuts on Saturday, June 29, at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
