Who’s Your Daddy? It ain’t Hef!

Whew…We can cross ONE NAME off the list!  We’ve been following the Anna Nicole Baby Daddy Saga HERE, HERE, and HERE.  But now we can definitively cross Playboy Magazine founder Hugh Hefner off the search list!

Hefner reminisces about Anna Nicole Smith

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Take Hugh Hefner out of the running.

“I can make clear at this time,” he says, “that I am not the father of the child.”

The Playboy magnate enjoys his laugh about the paternity uncertainties still swirling around Anna Nicole Smith, but his feelings about the former Playmate turned pop icon are no joke. In serious fashion, his bunny empire will offer three upcoming Smith tributes: a 10-page pictorial in the magazine’s May issue, an hourlong retrospective on Playboy TV and an online memorial on Playboy.com.

Smith, who first appeared on the magazine’s cover in March 1992 and was named Playmate of the Year in 1993, was 39 when she died of an accidental drug overdose in February.

So what was it about the buxom blonde Texan that Hefner found so alluring?

“It was her presence in front of the camera,” he told The Associated Press Thursday, chatting in the library of his famed Playboy Mansion. “She was one of those who loved being in front of the camera and came alive in front of the camera. There was very clearly a Marilyn Monroe quality about her and that aspiration was clear from the very beginning. She talked about Marilyn Monroe all the time.”

Smith often posed like Monroe, he said. At a Halloween party in 2004, she came dressed in a “Marilyn Monroe-type outfit” accompanied by three men in tuxedos: her attorney Howard K. Stern, boyfriend Larry Birkhead and son Daniel.

“The irony in terms of Anna Nicole’s fascination with Marilyn Monroe is how successful she was in building a similar kind of career, not through acting but simply through celebrity itself,” said Hefner, in his usual silk pajamas and smoking jacket. “The tragedy is she lived large as Marilyn did and died in a very similar way.”

She was still Vickie Smith when she first caught the eye of Playboy editors, who argued over whether to include her in the magazine.

“She came here and she weighed about 160 pounds,” Hefner recalled. “We like the voluptuous ladies but not that voluptuous. It was a wonderful statement for the simple fact that beauty has no limitation in terms of size. You can be a big lady and a beautiful lady, and she was.”

With three tributes, might Playboy be opening itself to criticism for profiting from Smith’s death? Not the case, Hefner quickly replied. “It’s quite frankly celebrating her in a way that she would appreciate.”

The publishing titan turns 81 on Monday, but makes little concession to the calendar. He just celebrated his birthday with a bash in Las Vegas, and recently started work on the third season of “The Girls Next Door,” an E! reality show about life with his girlfriends Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson.

Their upcoming adventures include an appearance at the Toyota Grand Prix, where Hefner will serve as grand marshal (and Wilkinson will drive a race car), and a trip to Monte Carlo at the invitation of Prince Albert, Hefner said.

And the chatter about Hef getting engaged? Just rumors, he said.

“I am in a very serious relationship with Holly,” he explained. “I love all three of the girls, but the relationship with Holly will last, certainly, for the rest of my life. Whether it leads to marriage, we will see. I’ve tried marriage twice before without great success, and at this moment, I don’t want to spoil the relationship.”

You’re So Money… (The Swingers Post)

Perhaps one of the best scenes in one of the best movies (Swingers) of our generation…

Bad man.

Curveball!

Nice full-count curveball from the judge in the Anna Nicole case!

Read the story here.

It was a case of nobody “wins” as the court did what it felt was the wishes of Anna Nicole, not what her lawyer, or boyfriend, or estranged mother SAID she wanted.  Good job.

But what about the estate?  Is that in the hands of Dannielynn’s legal guardian?  And what about a paternity test to see who is her rightful father, thus, her legal guardian?  What if it’s neither Stern nor Birkhead?  Do they track down everyone who claims to have slept with Anna Nicole in the time period?  What about the doctor who supposedly gave her methadone while she was pregnant?  And why was he licking her in a gay bar?  And why were both Stern AND Birkhead watching?  And what about the clown makeup?  Why did the Bahamanian minister lose his job over this?  Won’t her grave be a new Graceland?  And what about the potential effects drugs would have on the baby?  If Dannielynn is damaged from potential and alleged drug use of Anna Nicole, what will happen? 

I want to respect the dead here, but how many men was she sleeping with on a regular basis?  I mean that as a serious question.  No less than 4 people claim to be the father (not to mention me).  That means that within a short window of time, she would have slept with each of them, perhaps multiple times.

I’m not judging…just asking the question.  To each their own.

We’ve heard many people claim to be the father.  But none of them are shooting down the other potential dads.  So they aren’t even bothering to jockey for position.  It’s like….who knows who fathered this kid?  Draw some blood and find out!  It’s paternity, not CSI!

And when there is an issue of paternity, there is only one person to call:

Valentines Day

So we’re all on the same page, read this history on Valentines Day.

I’ve got mixed feelings on this day, as I’m sure most of you do, as well.  In some ways, it’s a social division created by mass-marketing.

As a case study in the power of marketing, it’s absolutely fascinating.

But we’re all hear to mock the day, not analyze it, right?

Here is an absolutely brilliant how-not-to-do video:

So now you are thinking, “What they hell should I give my girl for this wretched holiday?”

Well, my fellow bretheren, I have only one meaningful, realistic suggestion that is a gift so unique, only you can give it:

And, when all else fails…turn to Blog Hero Rick Astley:

Enjoy the day…remember: it’s not as important as she thinks it is but it’s more important than you wish it was.

The Approved List

So, I was watching Comedy Central today…as they counted down the Top 20 Stand-Up Comedians of all time. They pimped “The Sarah Silverman Program” at least every 7 minutes.

That got me to thinking about “The Approved List.” You know that list. The list of women who you tell your girlfriend or wife that, if you EVER get a chance with them, it’s allowed.

I’m going to give you the 5 women currently on my personal “Approved List.” Let me know who you have on yours!

My “Approved List” (In no particular order):

1. The Inspiration for this post, Sarah Silverman:

2. WWE Diva Maria Kanelis:

3. Star of the HOT movie “Unfaithful,” Diane Lane

4a. The two hottest Lois Lanes EVER (1) Smallville’s Erica Durance:

4b. And, from “Lois and Clark,” Teri Hatcher:

5. And…Jessica Rabbit.

So, I squeezed 6 on a 5-woman list. But Lois Lane counts as a single entry and…well…Jessica Rabbit is a cartoon. Don’t hate her…she’s just drawn that way!

Feel free to post your list. But PLEASE keep it family-friendly (my mom and dad read this, yknow!) .
