“Entertainment Tonight” interview with Anna Nicole Smith Assistant filmed at a secret location in Southern California.
Palm Springs, CA LAWFUEL – Law News, Celebrity Lawsuits – February 25, 2007 — Kim Walther, former personal assistant to the late Anna Nicole Smith, had come forward to talk about her experience working for the former model and Playboy playmate.
Solana Productions, Inc., recorded the exclusive interview for “Entertainment Tonight” with correspondent Jann Carl at a secret location in Southern California.
The two-camera shoot involved a five-member crew from Solana Productions, which provides videotape production for broadcast, cable and corporate clients throughout Southern California. In addition to “ET,” Solana regularly shoots for “The Insider,” “Dr. Phil,” “The Rachael Ray Show,” and other programs.
The interview aired Friday on “Entertainment Tonight.”
Walther worked for Smith for about five years and appeared with her in the E! reality series, “The Anna Nicole Smith” show, sporting purple hair and a tattoo of Anna Nicole on her shoulder.
Walther witnessed Smith signing her will, which she said took place at Smith’s Los Angeles home in 2000. She said the former model, Playboy playmate and actress was “of sound mind and body” during the process.
The will named Smith’s personal attorney and confidante, Howard K. Stern, as executor, and left Smith’s fortune to her son, Daniel, who died last September.
Walther also says Smith at first told her she was not sure who was the father of her now 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn, but later said Stern was the father.
Walther says she hopes to meet with Dannielynn one day and tell her “the good things” about her mother.
According to Walther, someone has created a website using her name that criticizes Stern. She says she called Stern to let him know she had nothing to do with the fake blog.
Smith died in Hollywood, Fla., after collapsing in her hotel room on Feb. 8. The final autopsy report is awaiting the results of toxicology tests.
