Goodbye Daniel Smith

Larry The Lizard and Daniel SmithAnna Nicole Smith's 20 year old son Daniel died suddenly Sunday in the Bahamas while visiting his mom in the hospital. I can't imagine what she's going through; on Sept 7 she gives birth to a baby girl then on Sept 10 her son dies sitting in her room. Looks like the investigation into this will drag out for awhile.

I met Daniel and his mom on the set of "Illegal Aliens" almost exactly a year ago. He was a pretty quiet kid and kept close to Anna's entourage but we did speak enough to make it obvious he was a decent and smart guy. He was on the set anytime his mom was, looking out for her, making sure things were funny and light. He even hung out with Larry The Lizard at the wrap party.

I always expected "Illegal Aliens" to get lots of attention. Exec Producer John James and Director David Giancola have been all over the news and were even on "Larry King Live" last night along with Joanie "Chyna" Laurer, but not for this reason. "Illegal Aliens" will now be dedicated to Daniel Smith and here's hoping that Anna and all Daniel's family and friends can laugh again soon.
