Sandi Powledge may have been—ok, definitely was— "the furthest thing from glamour" when she met Anna Nicole Smith in 1991. But, according to the Houston Chronicle, that didn't stop the pair from embarking on a "tumultous love affair" that began in Texas, endured through Anna's rise to Playmate of the Year, and was finally ended by Anna's drinking and her inability to stay monogamous. "She was just hungry for love, hungry for approval—just like a bucket with a hole in the bottom," Powledge says. Oh, Anna! If only things had gone another way. But alas, Sandi Powledge just couldn't fill your hole.
