Anna Nicole Smith Being Sued

You would think that Anna Nicole Smith has enough to worry about with that whole baby thing in the Bahamas. Now she is being sued for her diet pill contract. Crazy! Is anyone using Trim Spa? I have seen it in my local stores but have not stopped to check out the labels. All I can hear echoing in my mind is Anna saying: Wanta play? Want some money? Like my body? Trim Spa BABY!

Anna Nicole Smith and TrimSpa Inc. have been sued in a class-action lawsuit alleging their marketing of a weight-loss pill is false or misleading.

Janet Luna and three people identified as her guardians were named in a lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court. The lawsuit alleges deceptive business practices and a violation of California's unfair competition law.

They are asking for unspecified damages, restitution and an injunction preventing Smith and New Jersey-based TrimSpa, maker of TrimSpa X32, from making claims that users of the pills can lose substantial amounts of weight.

Smith, 39, has endorsed TrimSpa and is a spokeswoman.

Messages left with Joseph Farzam, an attorney for the plaintiff, and Ron Rale, Smith's lawyer, weren't immediately returned early Tuesday.

Last month, the Federal Trade Commission announced TrimSpa would pay $1.5 million to settle allegations that the diet-products company's weight-loss claims were unsubstantiated.

TrimSpa released a statement following the announcement saying it supported actions to clean up the weight-loss industry, but disputed the federal agency's allegation that a handful of TrimSpa advertisements that ran in 2003 and 2004 had insufficient substantiation.

TrimSpa also disagreed with any inference that its X32 product has no scientific support.

You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.

And now Anna Nicole Smith gets sued for being in the commercials?

This is another example of why our courts are so clogged with crap. Someone didn't "magically" lose 500lbs after taking the pills so they see this as a potential big payday. They get some lawyers to throw lawsuits at everyone and everything and see what "sticks".

Anyway, those diet pills sure worked for Anna! You forget how lovely she looks when she not so heavy. Do a Google search for her or visit one of those video dump sites to see how she looks now and before she got fat. Gorgeous. She is stunning.
