This reminded me of Green Acres. G. Ben Thompson has repeatedly told Anna Nicole Smith to vacate his home in the Bahamas. Anna has not complied claiming the house was gifted to her. Last Friday, Thompson took matters into his own hands by shutting off the electricity to the house. Anna Nicole pleaded with the power company to restore electricity which they did, until Monday. Now she’s living in the dark probably trying to figure out where they hid the switch to the candles.
Not only that, G. Ben Thompson sent his son-in-law to serve Anna Nicole with an eviction lawsuit and what followed was something that I thought only happened on the old Nick-at-Night.
We’re told Smith ran back inside the house and then appeared on the balcony and, in classic antebellum style, began screaming: “You get off this property. This is a gift and I ain’t ever leaving. And I’ll show you, Ben, you ain’t never gonna see the baby again! You did a declaration for that fuckhead Larry Birkhead!”
This is made even more peculiar by the fact that the son-in-law was serving the papers, yet Anna seemed to be addressing G. Ben Thompson himself. Add a pig, a pitchfork and overalls to this story and we could have ourselves a hoedown. And that ounce of sympathy I had for Anna after her son died has been dutifully replaced by a pound of contempt.
