Anna Nicole Smith is now lighter in more ways than one

From the “and you thought you were having a bad day” department: Anna Nicole Smith has lost 88.5 million… and not pounds this time.

A Federal Appeals Court threw out a judge’s ruling that gave Smith $88.5 million of her former husband’s estate. Smith married J. Howard Marshall when she was 26 and she was 89. It was one of those “May / I don’t remember” romances, and the first to be consummated with the aid of “The Clapper.”

Smith won’t have to worry about where the next meal’s coming from, however. Fortunately for Anna, this day in age, she’s in a tailor-made Zeitgeist. Never in history has there been a time when there is such a fortune to be made on a commodity called “Ditz.”
