So as I watched Anna Nicole Smith, ‘work the room’ with the man she couldn’t even decipher as being another enemy, Howard K Stern, it made me sad, and sickened.
He was holding her up, and leading her around the room for people to literally grope and ogle her. Some sleazy group of guys were touching her inappropriately while Howard ‘feigned’ protection, but all the while with this awful hint of a smile.
I watched him like a hawk that night. Not her, she was only going to behave like we’d come to expect. I set my eyes on him as he worked that room, and I’ll never forget that he suddenly met my eyes and for a few moments his face changed, and he looked embarrassed.
Actually no, not embarrassed, BUSTED. He knew damn well what was going through my head. I didn’t try to disguise my disgust and I held my glare at him as long as he dared keep his eyes on mine.
I knew that minute that he knew damn well what he was doing to Anna. I have no doubt she treated him like utter shit, but he knew what he was doing.
He was never in love with her, he was in love with the attention, and no doubt got off on something else behind closed doors.
No doubt there was financial gains along the way, or maybe as the couple desperately tried to flog the fact that they were supposedly married, that he was stupid or ‘in his own haze’ enough to think that if she got the ex billionaire’s cash, then eventually so too would he.
He as others, hung Anna Nicole Smith out to dry! He helped her get more drugs, and he wheeled out a sick women for all to see. I think he got off lightly with this sentence. Because I think what actually went on, was probably a lot worse than any of us will know.
Not sure that I’d be looking to Howard if I had legal woes, or worse, a drug problem.
