So what exactly was she? Model? Actress? Reality star? Sex bomb? Gold digger? Obviously a trainwreck, but have you ever seen a woman go from so incredibly hot to unbelievably grotesque (and back!) in such a short time. Sometimes you'd see her and she'd look like the reincarnation of Jayne Mansfield, and at the time of her frightening reality show a few years ago she was like Divine (on a bad day and on bad drugs). So she definitely wasn't as talented as Marilyn or Jayne or even Jenny McCarthy for that matter, and she did marry an 89-year-old billionaire for his money (did she ever get any of it by the way?), but you do have to feel a little sad at the way her abbreviated life turned out--she gives birth to a baby daughter (who's the daddy?) and her grown son dies visting her in the hospital just a few days later. And now she's gone at 39. Maybe it was the abuse her body took with all that weight fluctuation and god knows what else she's ingested. How's that TrimSpa stock flyin'?
I guess she didn't have to wait till old age and retirement to pass away in South Florida. Let's hope that baby girl is taken care of.
