ANNA NICOLE SHOW Set for August Premiere
In E!’s quest to find characters more outrageous than The Osbournes, the network has been following around former PLAYBOY Playmate Anna Nicole Smith for a look at her private life.
Set to premiere August 4th at 10pm, THE ANNA NICOLE SHOW follows Smith from trips to the dentist, dating and taking driving lessons, to her Hollywood parties and charitable events, as well as the raising of her 16-year-old son, Daniel.
Other regulars on the show include Smith’s attorney Howard, her purple-haired assistant Kim, and her toy poodle, Sugar Pie.
