The Death of a Playboy Playmate

Two years ago today, celebrity and former Playboy Playmate of the Year Anna Nicole Smith passed away from an apparent drug overdose. Her death at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida led to a paternity case over her remaining child every bit as outrageous as the life she led. Since the case was settled, things have largely quieted down in the media about Smith. The casino has also taken drastic steps to disassociate itself with the incident, going so far as to gut and remodel her room and change all of the room numbers on the sixth floor. In a similar move, the Palace Station Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada has refused has to rent room 1203 to those who specifically request it; the room where O.J. Simpson and his armed cohorts took sports memorabilia by force in 2007 (See our article on the Palace Station Casino).

However, last year it was reported that a guest at the casino had seen an apparition of Anna Nicole wandering about the lobby during a New Years party. Since that time, nobody else has come forward with tales of post-mortem Anna Nicole Smith sightings. Even if visitors to the casino don't see the Playmate's ghost, there is plenty to do at the casino which also features the world's only deep-water alligator wrestling show!

Oddly, the report of Anna Nicole's ghost walking about the casino lobby is not the only tale linking the former model to the supernatural. Years prior to her death, Anna Nicole claimed to have experienced a haunting in which she was raped repeatedly by an invisible spirit.

Pay a visit to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino -- Hollywood, Florida to find out the details.
