Boy, are we happy we watched Larry King Live last night. Yes, we saw the Clay Aiken interview, but we’re going to hold off on that for a second to discuss the new twists and turns in the Anna Nicole drama.
First, the pathologist, Cyril Wecht, finally released his findings on young Daniel’s body. It appears the cause of death was a mixture of methadone, Zoloft, and Lexapro. While chatting with Larry King, Wecht made it seem as if the meds had been prescribed as anti-depressants.
Sure, we know that Zoloft and Lexapro are prescribed to combat depression and anxiety, but we’ve never heard of methadone falling into that category. From our understanding, people taking methadone are usually trying to kick heroin or morphine addictions. Yet, there’s no evidence that Daniel had been through the pits of addiction. Why was the kid on methadone? Is it possible he was mixing it with anti-depressants to get high? We don’t know, but it’s all very intriguing.
The second twist in this whole sordid story is that two men claim to be the father of Anna Nicole’s new daughter. Howard Stern, her long-time lawyer and friend, insists that he’s the baby daddy, while photographer Larry Birkhead maintains Smith told him he’s the papa. Now, Birkhead’s demanding a DNA test.
This entire scene defies reality, doesn’t it? It’s almost as if Anna Nicole Smith’s a real life Erica Kane from All My Children, or something.
