NEW YORK - Anna Nicole Smith isn't always a live wire on her reality TV series, but her show will be live when it returns for a second season. A new episode of "The Anna Nicole Show" is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. EST March 2 on E! Entertainment Television. The show usually is a half-hour long, but this live episode will run until 10:33 p.m.
The 35-year-old former Playboy playmate and Guess? jeans model, who's sometimes depicted sluggishly wandering through her daily activities, will continue looking for love through a bachelor contest.
Also this season, Smith will take acting lessons to improve her TV and movie career and will undergo hypnosis to understand herself better.
Smith appeared in the 1994 movie "Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult," which earned her a Razzie Award for worst new star.
Her lawyer, Howard Stern; her personal assistant, Kim Walther; and her poodle, Sugar Pie, are all back for more adventures.
"The Anna Nicole Show" debuted in August with the highest ratings ever for an E! program, but its numbers later dipped.
