During Maurice Brighthaupt's testimony, the bodyguard says he recalls seeing Smith's boyfriend Howard K. Stern holding up Anna's head, when she was too weak, in order to feed her pills.

Brighthaupt also says Smith's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, tried to hide pills from the playmate ... even at one point "crying and threatening to leave if she mixed alcohol and prescription drugs."

As for Stern, the bodyguard says, "Oh, he said she can handle it. Anna can handle it."

Eroshevich, Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to supply Smith with large quantities of opiates and sleep medications.

Back in 2007, Anna Nicole Smith died of a drug overdose in a Florida hotel room.
