Breaking: Hefner and E! Comment on Anna Nicole Smith’s Death

playboy_anna_nicole.jpgDid Anna Nicole Smith die from those weight loss drugs, or more recreational ones? Or was someone who spent most of her life as a circus freakshow doomed to die this young?

We asked the people responsible, those who helped catapult this buxom bundle of tragedy into fame, to shed some light. But all we got back were press releases.

From E! came this boilerplate statement:

“E! Networks is deeply saddened by the tragic news of Anna Nicole Smith’s death. Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones.”

From Hugh Hefner (courtesy of <a href="http://www.mediabistro.com/

“I am very saddened to learn about Anna Nicole’s passing. She was a
dear friend who meant a great deal to the Playboy family and to me
personally. My thoughts and prayers are with her friends and loved
ones during this difficult time.”
