One died prematurely and one has gone bald prematurely - but the two female celebrities most often in the news these days had a lot in common.
Or so thought Anna Nicole Smith.
Six months before her tragic death, the pregnant model reached out via video to Britney Spears, Us Magzine reports.
In the video, an 8-months-pregnant Smith directly addressed Spears, who was also expecting her second child (their respective babies, Dannielynn and Jayden James, were born five days apart in September):
"If you see this for some oddball reason â€" because I look at your stuff, too [referring to Spears' website ... or maybe The Hollywood Gossip coverage of her] â€" and you want to be friends, I would love so much to hang out with you," she said. "I think you're totally cool, and I think we're about to have babies around the same timeâ€¦I would just love to meet you."
Anna then mentions a man more dangerous than Brit's ex, Kevin Federline, at his most irresponsible.
"You can call my lawyer, my best friend, my confidant Howard K. Stern. I think everyone has his number."
"He'll give it out to you, Britney. Take cares [sic], and I hope that you do great on your second pregnancy. I'm sure you won't even see this, but if you do, I'd really love to talk to you. Bye."
Alas, Spears never saw the message. Probably because she was wasted.
