Anna Nicole Found Comfort In Judaism

ANNA NICOLE SMITH turned to Judaism in the months before her death - because the religion's rules gave her comfort as she mourned the loss of her son DANIEL. The model/actress' son died from an accidental drug overdose just days after his baby sister Dannielynn was born in the Bahamas, and the tragedy prompted Smith to seek out religion. In a new book called Anna Nicole Smith: Portrait Of An Icon, the tragic star's stylist pals Pol Atteu and Patrik Simpson reveal the actress found great comfort in Judaism after her son's death in September 2006. They even feature photographs of the late star posing in front of a mirror that has been covered in accordance with Jewish mourning rites. Atteu and Simpson write, "Anna embraced all religions, and followed the Jewish tradition out of respect for (companion) Howard K. Stern by covering all the mirrors in the house because she was in mourning." It's customary in the Jewish faith to cover all reflective surfaces following a family death, so that all thoughts of vanity are replaced by consideration for the deceased.
