We've been pretty silent on the whole Anna Nicole thing because, well, we don't really care one way or another whether she's alive or dead. We know that's harsh, but we're not feeling too bad about it. Especially not after reading this TMZ report that one of Anna Nicole's nannies claims the Playboy model (among other things) underfed her newborn baby girl because she wanted her to be "sexy".
According to the sworn affidavit written in the Bahamas on December 4, 2006, Quethlie Alexis claims she received repeated threats from Smith, aka Vickie Marshall, to "underfeed" Dannielynn because, "Ms. Marshall was obsessed with making sure that her baby was 'sexy.' Ms. Marshall knew that the correct amount of baby food was 3 ounces every 3 hours ... Ms. Marshall insisted that the maximum I was to give was 2.5 ounces." Alexis claims that Smith enforced the order by "making sure the baby monitor was kept on all the time." Alexis adds Dannielynn "is badly underweight and not thriving, as a baby should."
Of course, this could simply be the former nanny's attempt to get attention when Anna Nicole was still alive (take a look at the date of the affidavit, above). But in a society in which 6-year-old girls are going on diets, and women are celebrated simply for being sex machines, we're not going to discount this one quite yet.
