Emma and Anna, Two Peas in a Pod?

I know not many people are going to like this connection, but has anyone noticed how similar Emma Hamilton and Anna Nicole are? I was just over at One D at a Time which has clips of the Anna Nicole Christmas party and I couldn't help but think; there's gotta be a little Emma in Anna.
Both ladies were:

  • Beautiful
  • From poor origins
  • Began their careers in the sex industry (prostitution and striping)
  • Married really old really rich guys
  • Claimed they genuinely loved their really old really rich husbands
  • Became part of an elite social scene that considered them to be trashy
  • Models
  • Criticized for their vulgar speech
  • Gained a lot of weight in the height of celebrity and were criticized for it
  • Already had children going into their rich marriages
  • Had daughters whose fathers' were kept a mystery

I must say, I like Emma much more than Anna... see, this is a funny thing with me; I love 18th century gossip and celebrities but I'm not much fond of today's gossip and celebs.

I would have to agree with you there but I can't help but wonder if that's only because we have more exposure to Anna than Emma. Maybe she'll be idolized centuries from now... (shivers at the thought)

LOL! Considering the opinion I already had of Emma, I can't find much cause to argue with your comparison. Given everything I've read about her, I really cannot fathom her recent surge in popularity!

Oh fye! I see the similarities but to compare trailer park trash to someone cunning as Emma??? Fye!
