A mere 39 years into a dramatic life, Anna Nicole Smith has died. CNN reports:

Reality TV star and former model Anna Nicole Smith was pronounced dead Thursday after being taken to a Florida hospital, a law enforcement source told CNN.

Smith, 39, collapsed at a south Florida hotel, according to news reports.

“I can confirm that she is deceased. It’s as shocking to me as to you guys,” Smith’s attorney, Ronald Rale, told Reuters. “I don’t know anything further. [Her lawyer and husband] Howard [K. Stern], obviously, is speechless and grieving.”

Smith’s nurse called Seminole Hard Rock Hotel workers at 1:38 p.m. and security went to the room, hotel officials told Reuters. Fire rescue workers arrived within minutes, and Smith was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood at 2:10 p.m

We’re sincerely sorry to hear about this – no, really, we mean that. In some bizarre way, Anna Nicole was America’s Diana. Only on pills…

We only hope it’s not drugs or murder…both of which seem to be the most likely, unfortunately…
