In the new documentary Final 24: Anna Nicole Smith airing Wednesday night on Bio, Patrik Simpson,a talent agent, and Pol Atteu, who owns Pol Atteu Couture, open up about their time with the ill-fated beauty. The pair recently chatted with OK! to discuss what made Anna Nicole so special. “Anna was a regular person and a real friend,” Patrik explained to OK!. “She had a crazy media life and a fun life.”

“She was a great mom,” Pol, who in addition to being a near and dear friend to Anna also designed outfits for her, added. “One thing I respected was that she never forgot our daughter’s birthday. She always remembered Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and our daughter’s birthday.”

The two, who appear quite a lot in the documentary, got involved with the project because they wanted to show that Anna’s friends were normal people. “I think there’s a lot of things people don’t know about Anna,” Pol told OK! “They only know the very salacious details. This shows the stuff we knew — the private, intimate details.”

“We want to show that she wasn’t a dumb blond. She was so smart, and she knew exactly how to manipulate the press,” Patrik added.

To get more on their take, watch The Final 24 tomorrow night.
