After being MIA for two weeks, Kim Walther, Anna Nicole Smith's friend and former assistant was found, and has finally spoken out about Anna's death.

In an interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Walther shot down rumors that Howard K. Stern murdered Smith and her son Daniel, saying "It's not possible, Howard would never, ever do anything to hurt Daniel or Anna ... I really wish people would leave them alone."

Walther also says she witnessed Anna and Howard "being intimate" with each other, and knew Smith was hooked on prescription drugs including methadone, saying, "For the most part she could handle it ... there are times where it was clear she didn't handle it as well."
