  • Anna Nicole Smith is on her way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The former stripper, playmate of the year, reality TV star, and alleged gold digger, now has the role of impoverished widow and unlikely Supreme Court litigant. Anna has promised to attend what will surely be one of the court's most-watched cases of the year. And the media circus generated by the bleached blonde's presence surely will prove the truth of Chief Justice Roberts' remark at his recent Supreme Court confirmation hearings: "Nobody ever went to a ball game to see the umpire." No matter how controversial Roberts and the possible replacement for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor might be, all eyes will be on the litigants when the U.S. Supreme Court hears the tabloid-headline case of Marshall v. Marshall on Feb. 28.
