Reports are just coming in that Playboy covergirl and TrimSpa endorser Anna Nicole Smith has died in Florida after collapsing in the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino.

We are sure that there will be wall-to-wall team coverage in the coming hours, days, and weeks into the life and death of the rags to riches story of the buxom bleach blonde who married a billionaire and never had a dull moment.

We here at LAist were big fans of Ms. Smith, and although her death is a tragedy, if indeed it's true, the bright spot is that we will no longer have to hear from Howard K. Stern -- who was now around two mysterious deaths in less than six months.

Smith, who was embroiled in several legal battles before her untimely death, was fighting the son of her former husband for hundreds of millions of dollars, she was fighting the alleged father of her newborn child, and she was recently named in a class-action suit regarding TrimSpa.
