is sharing some of Anna Nicole Smith
's most intimate secrets.
In an exclusive sit-down interview at his home in Kentucky with Et's Kevin Frazier
, the 44-year-old shares memories from his relationship with the late model and actress, what it's like raising their 11-year-old daughter, Dannielynn
, on his own and why he thinks people are still so fascinated with his former partner.
Frazier kicks off the interview by explaining to Birkhead that he first met him in Los Angeles the night of Smith's infamous slurred speech onstage at the 2004 American Music Awards.
"As bad as that seemed and people were making fun of her, behind the scenes, her phone was ringing off the hook," Birkhead recalls. "People were dropping off scripts, people were wanting interviews and I mean, unfortunately, that's the way it goes, people were talking about her."
