She was a beautiful woman with a body of beautiful proportions. I discovered her when she became a model for us larger gals. She made the most of everything she was given by nature including a very wealthy aged billionaire. This is every womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dream when we reach middle ageÃ¢â‚¬Â¦..I never saw her on television but when she lost a lot of her weight, I was first in line to take those magic diet pills. Of course what the instructions on the box forgot to tell me was to supplement the pills with drugs like cocaine.
Apparently Ms Smith was prolific in her personal life and made the rest of us guess who the father of her little girl was! Goodness! After her death they were all lining up to prove paternal responsibility. I remember when I discovered I was pregnant again at 33, I looked at my own husband and wondered at the miracle of miracles as he had not been home much at that time.
Why is the media obsessed with Ms SmithÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sex life? I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be the lack of news as anyone ignoring the vast reporting of CHBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s writers can see one catastrophe after another just waiting to be written and read. Now the press has come up with the final folly. The old aged billionaire gave his sperm up to Ms. Smith to guarantee his billions would be hers!
That is a vision I had hoped to be spared.
Nothing is sacred in America anymore. Even I have slipped into writing a commentary about the story. Please forgive me!
