We weren't sure what to make of the news that Willa Ford would be portraying Anna Nicole Smith in an upcoming movie.

All we really knew about Ford was that she was engaged to a hockey player and had never dated Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Or so she claimed.

Playboy Bunny

We were only recently made aware of the naked connections between the former Dancing with the Stars contestant and Anna, however: each has posed in Playboy. Now the casting makes perfect sense. 

As you can tell, Anna Nicole Smith nude (above) was a common sight. Therefore, the film needed to star another female that's comfortable in her own skin. Enter Ford. Only a few celebs have posed in Playboy, making the decision easy for producers.

It had to be Willa, Kristine Lefebvre or Tricia Helfer. They went with Ford.

This week isn't just bringing good news to fans of Larry Birkhead.

Those that have been clamoring for a biopic of Anna Nicole Smith to hit the big screen are in luck: a film version of this starlet's life begins shooting next week. And just who will portray the former Playboy model?

Playboy Bunny

Willa Ford, of course.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant certainly has the blonde hair to pull of the role. But does she possess the giant boobs? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, we haven't received word yet on who will star as Dannielynn.

We vote for Ramona Sarsgaard.

Move over, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor. You've got company.

TMZ has just confirmed the California Medical Board is conducting a formal investigation into Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, Anna Nicole Smith's shrink.

Playboy Bunny

She's the one who prescribed numerous drugs that Anna Nicole Smith ended up taking, and which turned up in her autopsy report.

In all, a shocking combination of eleven drugs was found in the hotel room where Anna Nicole Smith died, all prescribed by Khristine Eroshevich.

Eight were prescribed to Smith's lawyer and companion, Howard K. Stern, including chloral hydrate, the drug that was the most direct cause of Anna's death.

As we stated above, this is the second doctor being investigated for prescribing practices involving Anna Nicole Smith.

The Board is also investigating Dr. Kapoor, who prescribed methadone to Smith under an alias when she was eight months pregnant with Dannielynn.

Last year, just five days after Smith's son, Daniel Smith, died, a document shows that Dr. Eroshevich sent Dr. Kapoor a prescription wish list for Anna Nicole, which included methadone, Soma, Dilaudid and Lorazepam.

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor has said he did not fill the prescriptions. More on this story as it develops.

Forgive us if we don't believe everything Howard K. Stern says.

But in a recently released statement, the immoral lawyer claims Anna Nicole Smith could have been saved if she'd been hospitalized before her death â€" but she refused emergency care, fearing a "media frenzy."

Playboy Bunny

After announcing Smith's autopsy results on Monday, Broward County Medical Examiner Joshua Perper said Smith had been suffering from a stomach flu, a 105-degree fever and an infection from repeated drug injections.

At the same time, she was using a long list of medications, including the powerful sleeping drug chloral hydrate, methadone, valium, several antidepressant and anti-anxiety drugs, longevity medications, vitamin B12 and growth hormone, the Associated Press reports. The loving mother of Dannielynn died from an accidental drug overdose.

If Smith had sought treatment for her flu, she might have been saved, Perper said, if only because her drug use could have been controlled:

"If she would have gone to the hospital she wouldn't have died because she wouldn't have had the opportunity to take the excessive amount of chloral hydrate."

But according to a statement from lawyers for Stern, she refused emergency care in the days before her death because "she did not want the media frenzy that follows her." We wish Larry Birkhead could've stepped in.

Anna Nicole Smith died of "an accidental overdose with no other criminal element present," Seminole Police Department Chief Charlie Tiger announced at a press conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Monday.

He said the police conducted a thorough investigation, which included reviewing hundreds of hours of videotapes captured by the hotel security cameras and analyzing the contents of the laptop computer belonging to Smith's companion, Howard K. Stern, and "we found nothing to indicate any foul play."

Playboy Bunny

Broward County medical examiner Dr. Joshua Perper, who earlier had declined to make the autopsy results public until he reviewed the evidence, said that Smith's system contained methadone, anti-anxiety and weight-reducing drugs and, possibly, vitamins, among other substances.

This is also known as the Nicole Richie diet.

The former Playboy Playmate died six weeks ago, on Feb. 8, in Hollywood, Fla. According to the Associated Press, additional evidence from the Seminole Police Department, which is investigating Smith's death, delayed the autopsy's release.

Tiger said Monday that his department found "no evidence of illegal drugs" at the death scene and had reviewed "hundreds of hours of tapes [and] found nothing unusual" in regard to the death of the mother of Dannielynn.

The day after Smith's death, police said they had found no evidence that a crime had been committed, and Perper said he'd found no serious injuries in his initial examination.

Perper said at a Feb. 9 press conference that Smith's death could have been due "solely to natural causes ... some medical and chemicals ... or a combination of natural causes and medication."

No matter what, it's a tragedy. Perhaps a silver lining will be elicited, however, when Larry Birkhead is rightfully named the father of Dannielynn in the near future.

If Howard K. Stern was out for money, he didn't have to commit murder.

The simple act of larceny would have been enough. Especially now that the diary of Anna Nicole Smith has sold for over half a million dollars on eBay.

Playboy Bunny

TMZ has learned that in an online auction, a businessman from Hamburg, Germany just dropped $512,500 on two handwritten diaries, penned by Anna Nicole between 1992 and 1994. That's even more than most guys would pay see to see Kim Kardashia nude on her sex tape.

According to the seller, Thomas Riccio of Universal Rarities, the winner is "a huge fan" of the former Playboy Playmate, but wishes to remain anonymous. The German outbid fans from all over the world, including the United States, England and the Bahamas.

Meanwhile, Anna's daughter, Dannielynn, will soon be finding out her true daddy. And the world will soon be finding out just how Smith died.

The price of that information? The same as someone should pay on eBay for a car with the Olsen Twins: nothing.

As TMZ.com correctly points out, is there any chance we wiil soon see a movie based on the life and death of Anna Nicole Smith?

With that in mind, let's give Hollywood honchos a few ideas of who could portray whom in the big screen version of this soap opera:

Playboy Bunny

Only one talented actress is blonde enough and busty enough to slide into Anna's shoes: Tori Spelling...

And her soon, Daniel Smith, ought to be played by another young star in Tinseltown. We just hope Nick Carter isn't also murdered...

As for the dueling baby daddies, let's start with Larry Birkhead. We know Lance Bass is gay, but he could pull off dashing Anna lover, as well.

Finally, Howard K. Stern is dirty and corrupt.. We're not claiming that former Friends star David Schwimmer is either of these things - but they do look similar, don't they?

As for Dannielynn, it's difficult to cast a baby, of course. It's also sometimes dangerous; we've all seen what happens to child stars.

Surrounded by stable acting parents, though, we think Pax Thien Jolie would do a great job.

Anna Nicole Smith was laid to rest on Friday in a mahogany coffin draped in a rhinestone-studded, pink feathered blanket. Hundreds gathered in a Bahamian church to say goodbye to the former Playboy model and occasional actress.

In signature Anna Nicole style, the coffin was received on a red carpet before being wheeled inside Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Nassau, Bahamas.

Playboy Bunny

According to the Associated Press, Richard Milstein, the court-appointed advocate for Smith's 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn, called for "respect and solemnity" for all those congregating outside.

"Today we share our grief with all of you. ... Today we come to you to carry out the final, most sacred, solemn act provided to any individual," he said.

Shortly before the funeral commenced, Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, reportedly tried to halt her daughter's burial and take her remains to Texas. A Supreme Court justice denied the motion and the funeral continued as planned.

And not everyone in the crowd was there to support Smith. Some thought paying so much attention to this event was akin to Antonella Barba pics gracing the front page of The New York Times.

"She's got a presidential kind of media frenzy going on," a 59-year-old nurse from Columbus, Ohio, told the Associated Press. "I'm just incredulous at all the fuss. She was not a world figure. She was not a queen. She was not a president. She was not anything ... It's just way over the top."

Smith's companion, Howard K. Stern, and her former boyfriend Larry Birkhead were both present at the service, but Dannielynn (of whom both Stern and Birkhead claim to be the father) was not in attendance.

We don't know whether or not Dr. Sandeep Kapoor was present.

Anna Nicole Smith will be remembered Friday in the Bahamas in a service befitting her flamboyant life.

"It will be a very beautiful Anna Nicole send-off," Patrik Simpson, a friend of Smith who is helping to organize the memorial, told the Associated Press on Wednesday. "Of course it will be over the top because it's Anna Nicole."

Playboy Bunny

He's not kidding. The service might be crazier than a girls night out with Tara Conner.

About 300 guests will attend the service at a church filled with pink flowers â€" her favorite color â€" and a well-known but as-yet undisclosed singer will perform, Simpson said. Our guess is that it won't be Bobby Brown.

Simpson's partner, Pol Atteu, who designed more than a dozen dresses for Smith, created the custom gown in which she will be buried in a "very elegant" casket.

The key players from the entire saga, of course, will be there. Howard K. Stern will bring his fake tears.

Along with Larry Birkhead and Anna's mother, Virgie Arthur, Stern has to submit a list of 100 guests he wished to invite to the funeral. But only about 30 people will attend the more private burial at Lakeview Memorial Gardens & Mausoleums.

The Friday burial only got the final green light on Wednesday, when a Florida court rejected an appeal by Arthur, to gain custody of her daughter's body. No word on whether Dannielynn will be there to say goodbye to her mommy.

Anna Nicole Smith had a bright future ahead of her.

So says Kim Walther to Entertainment Tonight. The former personal assistance to Anna told the show that Smith's greatest role still was ahead of her.

Playboy Bunny

"She wanted five more kids, and she had whole chests full of girl clothes that she had been saving over the years," Walther, who was known as "Kimmie" on the 2004 E! reality program The Anna Nicole Show, tells ET.

"I hope I'm given [the opportunity to tell baby Dannielynn about her mother one day]," she adds. "I just want her to know that her mom really was an amazing person, and loved her, and I would like to tell her the good things, you know?"

But does Walther know the answer to the pressing paternal issue: Larry Birkhead of Howard K. Stern?

"[Anna] told me she didn't know who the father was," says Walther, who then goes on to say, "She told me, let's see â€" I guess around Christmastime or shortly after New Year's â€" that Howard K. Stern was the baby's father."

Walther also says she was a witness to Smith's signing of her will.

"I haven't recently read the will, so I can't really say what's in there," says Walther. "I do know that at the time she signed it, she was sound, mind and body, and that's what she had intended."

Walther also wishes people would leave Stern alone. She doesn't believe he harmed Anna or her late son, Daniel. The assistant had no comment on Dr. Sandeep Kapoor.
