TRAIN WRECK: The Life and Death of Anna Nicole Smith, is the definitive story of the rise and tragic fall of a woman who became one of the most recognized celebrities in the world because of her voluptuous beauty and her devotion to sex, drugs, money and fame. Donna Hogan, Anna's sister and confidante to Anna and other family members, provides an intimate and mesmerizing view of how her sister broke away from anonymity, poverty and an abusive family, rocketed to fame, and then all-too-soon crashed to her death at the age of 39, weighed down by drugs, alcohol, lawsuits, scandal and the unexpected death of her 20-year-old son, Daniel. Born Vickie Lynn Hogan, she left school in 10th grade, had a son by 18, became a stripper at 20, and married a billionaire at 26. Vickie transformed herself through plastic surgery and sheer determination into Anna Nicole Smith, Playboy's Playmate of the year in 1993, spokesperson for Guess? Jean and TrimSpa, and star of The Anna Nicole Show on E! She told everyone that she would be the next Marilyn Monroe and pursued that dream, right to her tragic end.
