Trashy to Trashier Celebs

Just when you thought these celebs couldn't sink any lower ... they do something sleazy. Check out how low these stars can go! Anna Nicole Smith
The Trashy Siren

Tacky History
From former Playmate of the Year to one of the most popular litigants of our time, Anna Nicole Smith continues to reach new depths of trashiness.

Born Vickie Lynn Hogan in 1967, this native Texan has gone from stripper to Guess model to Playboy playmate -- and that was before things got really bad.

Just when you thought the blonde bombshell had bottomed out on the trashy scale, Smith married an 89-year-old oil tycoon -- for true love, of course. He passed away 14 months later and she is currently embroiled in a legal dispute with his stepson over the millions that she insists should be coming her way.

Vile Style
In the early days, the voluptuous Smith achieved a Marilyn Monroe look that was kitschy and almost cute. In recent years, however, she's gone too far. The makeup's gotten heavier, the hair higher and even her most famous assets seem to have taken on new proportions.

Trashy TV
And now, following in Ozzy's illustrious footsteps, she's starring in her own weekly half-hour reality series, scheduled to debut on E! in August. The Anna Nicole Smith Show will follow its namesake, her 16-year-old son, her lawyer (whose name, trashily enough, is Howard Stern) and her assistant (complete with purple hair and tattoos).

"People won't be able to stop watching once they tune in," said the ever-modest Smith. "My life is a roller coaster, so hold on and enjoy the ride!"

Can she get trashier? We predict that she marries Jack Osbourne, and they create one big happy dysfunctional reality TV family show.

Next: Tara Reid

Tara Reid
The Trashy Party Girl

Tacky History
Although always prone to flesh-baring, this young actress was once an endearing ingenue who just happened to employ the services of a misguided stylist from time to time.

Since her split from fiancé Carson Daly last summer, however, this New Jersey native has taken a turn for the trashier.

Vile Style
Reid's roots and eye makeup have become progressively darker. With her dwindling waistline and ever-protruding hip bones (often accentuated by incredibly low-slung pants), she unfortunately seems to be revisiting the heroin chic look we were so happy to see leave the scene in the mid-90s. The American Pie star does sometimes mix things up with a bottled tan and some bronzer, but the result looks more like Malibu Barbie on a bender than a healthy young woman with a summer glow.

Infamous Friends
Oh yeah, and her alliance with infamous -- and even more orange-hued -- New York PR princess Lizzie Grubman last summer certainly hasn't raised Reid's stock. She was one of Grubman's sidekicks the night she mowed down 16 people outside a Hamptons nightclub.

Tara gets cast for Bridget Jones's Diary II, gains thirty pounds for the role by boozing it up on strawberry daiquiris and pina coladas -- and can't get the weight off!

Next: Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera
The Trashy Mouseketeer

Tacky History
This young pop tart began her career on the Mickey Mouse Club with fellow Mouseketeers Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Her bangs may have been a little big, but all in all she was sweet, innocent and trash-free.

Today, however, this genie in a bottle is starting to rub us the wrong way. Maybe it's because so much fame came so young (she won a Grammy for best new artist at the ripe old age of 18), but Aguilera, now 21, just hasn't managed to keep her image in check.

Vile Style
Although she's always been a platinum blonde with a tendency to use a heavy hand with the makeup brush, this songstress seems to have let her vixen-status go to her head lately, prancing around in lingerie not only in the privacy of her own mansion, but on red carpets and award show stages from coast to coast. Much of the problem seems to be wrapped up in her hit "Lady Marmalade" single last year. In a nod to the song's Moulin Rouge connection, she began appearing (along with Pink, Mya and Lil' Kim) all dolled up in fishnets, garter belts and corsets. The look carried over from performances to real life though.

The tiny singer (she's only 5' 2") also went through a period in which she attempted to make up for lost height with humongous hair.

She comes out with her own trampy clothing and heavy-handed makeup line, sold exclusively at Target.

Next: Shannen Doherty

Shannen Doherty
The Trashy Troublemaker

Tacky History
This hot-headed Hollywooder has gone decidedly downhill since her days as 90210's wholesome (mostly) Brenda Walsh. Though the official party line was "creative differences," rumor had it she was axed from the popular show in 1994 for her diva antics and on-set wranglings.

A few years ago, we all thought Doherty had finally found her dream role -- playing a witch (albeit a relatively good one), on the WB's Charmed. The gig soured after only three seasons though, and rumors flew that conflicts with costar and fellow TV vet Alyssa Milano were part of the reason for her departure.

Vile Style
Her run-ins with the fashion police are also gaining in frequency. No longer boasting the figure that allowed her to play a high-schooler well into her 20s, the 31-year-old unfortunately still insists on dressing in the same image of bubble gummy starlets half her age. Clinging ensembles featuring skin-baring cut-outs and gauzy tops that just don't provide the support she needs have been of particular concern in recent months.

Quickie Marriages
Doherty isn't lucky in love either. Back in the heyday of 90210, she wed George Hamilton's son Ashley Hamilton. They had known each other for only two weeks and -- shocker! -- separated within months.

The actress married again in -- where else? -- Vegas last February. Once again the lucky guy was someone she'd only been dating for a couple of months. So far, so good, but no one's holding their breath on this one.

And then there are the legal disputes: From drunk driving to nightclub scuffles to landlord disputes, Doherty has seen her fair share of lawsuits.

Goes on to get kicked off a half dozen more TV shows before she finally realizes -- hey, maybe it's me?

Next: Dennis Rodman

Dennis Rodman
The Trashy Cross-dresser

Tacky History
Leather pants, belly-baring tops, sequined jackets. No, not the latest teen pop queen. We're talking about bad boy ball player Dennis Rodman.

This former Chicago Bulls forward became famous as much for his chameleon hair color and multiple tattoos as his incredible rebounds. Ever since his pro-basketball career ended in 1999 (the Lakers dumped him after a brief two-month stint on the team), he's remained in the spotlight only by upping his over-the-top quotient. Feathered boas, silver lipstick and, of course, his famous florescent hair are par for the course for this former athlete, who certainly strives to live up to the title of his autobiography, Bad As I Wanna Be.

Quickie Marriages
Married to a model for a mere 82 days in the early '90s, Rodman then married Playboy pinup Carmen Electra in Vegas in 1998. He tried to annul the union only days later (claiming a drunken lapse in judgment), but changed his mind. The two managed to make a go of it for about four months, but ultimately didn't have much more in common than a penchant for snakeskin duds.

Rodman even wed himself at one point. He rode a horse-drawn carriage into midtown Manhattan and emerged dressed in a bridal gown, wearing a blonde wig and carrying a bouquet. He has also been linked to Madonna somewhere in between these other unions. The Material Girl has since classed up her act though and is now far, far from landing on this list.

Rodman turned 40 last year, but the big birthday doesn't seem to have changed his flamboyant, free-wheeling ways.

Unable to make up comeback with the NBA, Rodman, dressed in drag, makes the WNBA team and goes on to become a star player for the New York Liberty.

Next: Geraldo Rivera

Geraldo Rivera
The Trash Talker

Trashy History
This television personality has been bringing us the "news" for more than three decades. Early years of serious investigative reporting have been so enmeshed with periods of talk show fluff though that it's become hard to distinguish the two. From his early years at Good Morning America and 20/20 (his segment on Elvis's drug problem is still one of the highest rated in the show's history), Geraldo joined the trash TV circuit in the late '80s with The Geraldo Rivera Show.

Noses, Nips and Tucks
When Geraldo ended his career as a daytime talk show host after 11 years on the air, he proclaimed, "I leave the talk-show business with my honor intact." We can't say as much for his nose though. It was broken in 1988 during a heated debate on white supremacists, when an over-zealous guest slammed a chair into his face.

Those who thought this was as low as he could go on national television, we proved sorely mistaken when Geraldo had fat removed from his buttocks and reinjected between his eyebrows for the world to see in 1992.

Between enduring physical hardships on-air, he's also been married four times, almost enough to rival fellow gabber Larry King.

Wartime Trash Talker
This 58-year-old, feathered-haired TV personality is now with Fox News, and stationed in Afghanistan. The viewers don't seem to be taking Rivera's reporting too seriously though, and most would agree that he's sinking to whole new lows as he continues to inflate his own image, with a war zone in the backdrop.

Unable to return to the U.S. and be taken seriously, Geraldo sets up a new daytime talk program in Kabul. His nose is soon rebroken when he invites al Qaeda operatives as his first guests.
