Well, we guess neither Christina Hendricks nor Jenny McCarthy will portray the notorious Anna Nicole Smith, ’cause Private Practice star Agnes Bruckner has nabbed the part of the Playboy model for Lifetime's planned biopic, The Anna Nicole Story!
The film follows the tumultuous life of Vicky Lynn Hogan as she changes from small town Texas plain jane into the glitzy, bodacious, attention-craving Anna.
Goodness, Lifetime seems be getting a tad more adventurous with their material! First Lindsay Lohan in Liz & Dick, now Mz. Bruckner as the troubled starlet… they're even courting Miley Cyrus to play Bonnie in a Bonnie & Clyde series!
But hey, we're loving it! And we can't wait to see how Agnes pulls of the breathy, Marilyn Monroe wannabe that was Anna Nicole Smith!

If it came down to Christina Hendricks or Jenny McCarthy, who would you choose to play Anna Nicole Smith in a new biopic??
Well, it IS down to those two, apparently!
Lifetime just can't decide, though!
A source at the network is spilling on the juice on plans to make Anna's life into an original movie and shares:
What's scarier than the exploitation and sexualization of a 17 year old girl through her marriage to a 51 year old man being publicized for entertainment value?
A sexualized and exploited 17-year-old girl pretending to be a sexualized and exploited 7 year old on Toddlers & Tiaras, also pretending to be a and overtly sexual and exploited now-deceased former pin-up who died from a terrible pill addiction!
Yeah. Try to wrap your heads around THAT!
Or you can just watch the
Anna Nicole Smith tragically passed away in 2007, but that's not stopping the IRS from going after her for back taxes!
The troubled star who died from a drug overdose reportedly owes the Internal Revenue Service $289,123.48!
The government organization has filed several liens against her estate since the year 2000, but say:
"No part of said debt has been paid, and the same is now due and payable in the office of the District Director of Internal Revenue…Said debt has priority must be paid in full advance of distribution to creditors as and to the extent provided by laws."
Uncle Sam is basically taking candy from a baby because Anna's daughter Danielynn, who is being raised by Larry Birkhead, is the sole heir to the estate.
Hopefully they sort this mess out so and there is at least enough money left to pay for Danielynn's college education!

Nancy Grace isn't buying Whitney Houston's accidental death…at least not without speculation.
The talk show and DWTS alum drew comparisons to other tragic deaths such as Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson.
So…was Whitney murdered?! Nancy said the following to build her case:
Why she thinks that is a compliment, we're not sure, but we're going to make a declaration of our own:
Ladies and gentlemen, meet the next Dina Lohan!
Mothers are supposed to want all the best in life for their daughters. They should want them to grow up to be strong, independent world leaders or doctors or hell, even just good mothers like themselves. Women who will make the world a better place with generosity and drive. Instead of these things, Courtney Stodden's "momager" wants her kid to be a "star." No, not like Angelina Jolie or Reese Witherspoon.
Like freakin' Anna Nicole Smith!
Krista Keller is stepping forward to the press (shocking!) to explain her standpoint on her daughter's rash life decision to marry at 16 and what she hopes for Courtney in the future. As for her daughter's premature marriage to Doug Hutchinson, Krista says:
Before Anna Nicole Smith died in 2007, she was locked in a complicated legal battle over money supposedly left (or not left) to her by her late husband's estate.
Her husband had died in the first year of marriage and his will made no mention of her. Upset by this, Anna took the estate to court saying that her late husband had promised her $300 million dollars to be left to her in the event that he should pass away.
Today, in a case that's strangely between to deceased people, the court has ruled
