Welcome to the end of Season 5 and another host’s choice edition of Trashy Divorces! Stacie has the surprising and sad tale of model Anna Nicole Smith, whose Playboy notoriety, marriage to a billionaire octogenarian, and sometimes inexplicable life choices made her catnip to the tabloids and someone who was relatable to millions when she died.
Then Alicia has the story of Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner. They divorced, but found a way to put it all back together again – at least until Natalie’s untimely death at the age of 43.
