Sandi Powledge was apparently Anna Nicole Smith’s longtime girlfriend before she became famous by marrying a rich corpse. Sandi, like everybody else, has come out (again) to speak about the death of her dear ex-lover.
They met in a gay bar in northwest Harris County in 1991 and would become lovers. It was an exhilarating time, one that Powledge, now 46, remembers fondly, even as she mourns the death of the woman she once loved. Powledge’s recollections evoke a picture of a woman far more vulnerable and human than Smith ever let on during her moments in the public eye. “I don’t know if she ever believed anyone really loved her,” Powledge said sadly, recalling her tumultuous relationship with the famous model and TV star during a recent interview in the small northeast Texas town of Winnsboro. “She was just hungry for love, hungry for approval — just like a bucket with a hole in the bottom.” “I feel a lot of guilt that I wasn’t there,” said Powledge, with tears streaming down her face. “You think even though you don’t talk, you can always have a time to make things right. … You always think there’s time. “She was a kind, loving, caring person who didn’t know how to handle what happened to her. When I look back, I’m going to remember how she was with me. … I’ve got a lot of great memories.”
The article goes on and on and on and basically Sandi is sad. That’s the bottom line. My only question is, why couldn’t Anna ever hit it with someone that was actually hot?! Visit the Houston Chronicle for the rest of this sordid, lesbian tale! VIA Gawker
