Anna Nicole Smith's Burial

Anna Nicole Smith's Burial

Anna Nicole Smith‘s funeral took place in a private ceremony at Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Nassau earlier today. Anna‘s coffin was then taken to Lake View cemetery for burial.

Is it just me or is Howard K. Stern giving Larry Birkhead the evil stare?

    Stern is one evil ass man, and I hesitate to call him a man. Now I bet he is gonna fight Daniel’s father, Billy, to keep Daniel’s body in the Bahamas. He has no legal rights whatsoever, but some stupid ass judges in Florida broke the law to suit the wishes of Stern.

  • susie

    I am so glad all this about ANS is finally off the TV. No one loved her. If they did they would not be fighting and bringing out all of her warts for the whole world to look at. I think most Americans assumed she was Trailer Trash, but now we all know.

  • Capriciousdiva

    Whether she is buried in texas, bahamas or wherever she should be buried with Daniel fullstop and i hope no stupid thing is gonna happen where they seprate them.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Ok, Lets see if this circus ends now. [I doubt it] People will be milking this for a long time.

  • pipi

    I actually think Stern’s not as bad as people think, she was obviously his entire world. Hopefully the insane coverage is over.

    _________________________________________

    Um,hello,but NO…the courts were suiting the wishes of ANNA NICOLE not Howard Stern. I would bet anything that the only person at that funeral who truly mourned Anna was Howard. He is the ONLY person who has stood with her for years and he has more than proven his devotion to her.
    Anna’s stupid, fat b*** of a mother is dispicable and should burn in h*** for trying to seperate Anna from the one person she loved more than anything, Daniel.
    Furthermore, where has Billy ….Daniel’s father…been all his life? NOW he wants to move Daniel’s body to Texas?? Please, all he and that b**** Virgie Arthur want is the bodies in Texas so they can make money off the funeral and I would not be surprised if they wanted to set up some kind of Elvis shit to make money off that. Well, I’m from Texas and I can tell you these people …..meaning Virgie and her clan….are an embarrassment to the state of Texas. I wish they would go back to the hills they came from and leave Anna, Daniel, Dannilynn, and Howard alone. H e l l , they need to leave Larry Birkhead alone too!!! If he is the baby’s father you know Virgie’s trashy a s s will be ALL OVER him just for the cash.
    RIP ANNA NICOLE SMITH
    ROT IN H E L L Virgie Arthur!!!!!

  • hey

    oh look! they’re supporting the fight against breast cancer! Anna would be soooo proud…

  • Capriciousdiva

    V – I so agree with you. Howards been with Anna so many years and stood by her. Who else at that funeral can claim that. If Howard Stern looked liked Larry Birkhead he would get all the sympathy (poor good looking blonde guy) but no he is being victimised cause he looks seedy that doesn’t mean he is.

  • let anna rest

    i’m watching entertainment tonight and its appalling how anna’s mom can look so heartless and conniving. i’m glad howard k. didn’t beat around the bush and just spoke the truth about virgie and all the people who have been badmouthing he and anna nicole. larry looked like he was just there for the cameras and i didn’t feel grief coming off him at all, not like howard. you could tell howard was devastated and he was right in saying no one knows the truth but he and anna, they were the only ones who knew how they felt. too bad anna’s mom has to be so heartless, why won’t she just let anna and daniel rest in peace??

  • Shannon

    I think Anna’s mother and Stern should hook up.Both of them are cold heartless b***&*.

  • http://gabby-babble.blogspot.com Orange Pixie

    R.I.P Anna

  • WTF

    V–you are right.

    Please Howard is any but cold and heartless. I usually don’t watch ET but I have been and you can tell he loves that baby and he loved Anna. If he was so bad why was Anna going to marry him? The wedding dress was already made. The ceremony was planned.

    Vergie Arthur needs to be shot. Larry–not too sure about him, but he’s obviously had some plastic surgery.

  • Chiniston

    What a bunch of sideshow freaks. Birkhead is trash, but next to Stern he looks like Mr. Right.

    Virgie, get back to the park, your pad fees are due.

    Why should Daniel’s father be able to move his body to Texas? When was the last time he saw his son? If I remember correctly has it not been something like 15 years? If he was really a father he would have fought tooth and nail to be in that child’s life. He did not. So why should he have rights now?

  • Celeb Watcher

    I think Larry genuinely loved Anna and loves his baby. He wanted her long before Anna died. He may be a bit of a wild child but who the heck in Anna’s life wasn’t?

    Howard is an opportunistic jerk. $$$ is what he is about. Remember this man watched her doing drugs and did nothing. I don’t care what rumors said. He did nothing.

    Larry tried to stop her in the hospital from taking drugs. She sent him away. Howard assisted her.

    At best, Howard was an enabler. At worst, he encouraged her involuntary suicide.

    Virgie doesn’t deserve to be booed at her daughter’s funeral, but neither does she have a claim to that child. And $$$ probably does play into it there. But such was Anna’s life.

    Larry is the only one I see here who seems to have not wanted to bleed Anna dry. He had his own place, paid for by his own money. Yes, he made money too. But HE made it. And, I think he will provide a decent home for Dannielynn away from the circus her mother surrounded herself with.

    He is probabaly worse than people think he is. Vickie turend away form her family when she met him. Also he is lying to keep Larry away from his daughter, Dannielynn.

    ************
    Anna Nicole(Vickie) would not let him see his son, just like she kept her own family from Daniel\, she cut Daniel off from his family. You see how she did Larry when he wanted to be in his daughter’s life, she moved to the Bahamas. She wanted her children all for herself. This is how that woman was. Anna(Vickie) was not a nice person. She moved all the way to the Bahamas to keep Larry away from his child. This is what she did to Daniel’s father.
    So why does Billy have to go all the way to the Bahamas to visit his son’s grave.
    So you should just shut up, you don’t know what went down in that family.

    Go Billy, go get you baby’s body and bring it home.

  • Denise

    The reason Anna(Vickie) moved to he Bahamas and buried Daniel there was to keep Larry away from his child.
    That woman wouldn’t even let Billy Smith come to his sons’s funeral, she wouldn’t let Daniel’s own grandmother who raised him until she got married to Marshall, come to Daniel’s funeral. Anna(Vickie) was not a nice person. She cut everybody off from Daniel and Dannielynn, she was selfish.

    I will tell Billy to bring his child’s remains home. Anna(Vickie) kept them apart in life, now he can bring his child come.

    I believe she will have normalcy in her life if they get her away form Howard K Stern. Anna Nicole was clsoe to her family until she got with that pimp.

  • MD

    First of all, Howard is suppposed to be a LAWYER but he is milking on Anna for a long time eversince Mr. Marshall died & Anna was fighting to get the dead hubby’s money. Why would a lawyer who graduated from law school be sleeping on a couch in Anna & Larry’s home??? He wanted to make sure he wouold get a share of the dead guy’s money…
    He is like all the other money-hungry lawyers out there (to the dead Cochran, yes you); they would do anything to get money & it does not matter if they went to law school for a long time & degrade their profession by sleeping on someone else’s couch & live for free…
    HOWARD IS NOT THE FATHER. Brunette, dark eyes are a dominant gene. Dannielynn has blond, blue, eyes— a recessive gene. That means to people who suck at science, that the probability that a brunette, brown eyed father will get a blond baby is really low.

  • Chanel

    I hope they find out who the daddy of that baby is STAT, so they can get her away from Howard. Please find that baby’s daddy.

  • mo2mo

    of course howard stayed with anna, coz he was milking anna’s money and pimping her out. sure he had desires for anna, maybe loved her, but love that has not been returned for so many years could turn deadly. he may have thought that anna would eventually end up with him after his years of dedication, but when he saw anna hooked up with larry birkhead and actually planned to marry him and started a family with him, he lost and so he planned all this to destroy anna’s life and get his revenge…
    and we all know that anna was superficial, i would not in a million years believe that she would chose howard who looks like freddie (on elm street) over larry birkhead who kinda looks a little like her son daniel.
    but howard clearly manipulated anna and drugged anna and probably brainwashed her and told her how he he and him only cared for her when in fact there could have been people who cared for her that tried to reach out for her. i honestly think larry genuinely cared for her.
    as for howard, i supposed he did, but only second to her money.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    I cant believe people are saying kind things about Howard K. Stern. I don’t get it.

    That lame was the ring master to Anna’s pathetic circus life. The poor girl was an idiot and a smut all rolled together, and Howard [the mastermind] Helped milk that sad image for years. God knows what her life or ‘career’ would have been like with out him…
    I don’t feel sorry for her, and I sure don’t have anything nice to say about that pimp.

  • http://www.mindsmack.com Sam @ MindSmack.com

    I think its way too much publicity. We need to focus on education and what is important to this country and our world. Let these people die in peace.

  • barbarabad24

    Wait one minute for all those that claim that Howard is the one that got Anna on drugs…Her mother has said that Anna was using drugs even when she was dancing topless..I watched her show and she didn’t let anyone control her.So I don’t understand how people can keep saying that Howard did this and that and.

    My heart ache for the entire family bottom line they all are touched inb the head.A real mother that love her daughter wouldn’t have tried all the tricks that Virgie has.I do believe thAt Virgie’s attorney’s are keeping this stuff going because she doesn’t look like she has the good sense to take the trash out.

    Daniel’s father chose not to be around Daniel after he and Anna Nicole divorced.My hat goes to Howard.Although remarks has been made that he was using Anna hello if you watch alot of the shows after her passing they clearly said she didn’t have money she even said that on her show…She also stated in court against the Marshall family that five thousand dollars a week wasn’t enough money for her to live.So know your facts…She was a grown woman and Howard or anyone else didn’t make her take the drugs.

    How do we know that what Larry said about the drugs in the hospital was true.If he was so against drugs why would he date her? You can’t change a person they have to want to change….

  • blogelina

    Thank God Anna was finally laid to rest…I hope she can rest in peace.

    Too bad they didn’t throw HKS into a grave as well. He deserves to be buried alive the rodent.

    I hope life is alot kinder to Dannielynn then it was her mother.

  • well…

    No matter what kind of person Anna Nicole Smith was, I think she deserves some kind of respect, because she’s gone now. Though I’ll never understand why media is making such a big deal out of this whole thing or why she’s labeled as a “celebrity,” I believe she was a good mom to her children and I do hope everything goes well with her daughter.

  • Katie

    Howard manipulated a very messed up and drugged up girl to his own advantage. The only reason they moved to the Bahamas is because he, the crooked lawyer, found that they had the law where whomever is on the birth certificate is the legal father, bio or not. They wanted to hide the baby from Larry. Anna and Larry had been in love, but she turned against him when he tried to get hor off drugs. Maybe he treatened to take the kid due to her drug habit and that’s another reason she ran and hid with Howard. That house isn’t even hers, it’s Ford Shelley’s!

    Howard convinced her that everyone was out to get her money, and turned her against her family, when all along he was the one after it. I have seen stuff like this happen in my own messed up family, somebody using a messed up person and turning them against the ones who really care. Her family said he wouldn’t even let her talk to them and they kept changing the phone numbers. Not only the mother but all the family! And Ford Shelley said when his daughter spent the night he wouldn’t let her come to the phone either. Howard is a control freak! Also, he supported her drug habit and helped her get and hide drugs after Larry and her family tried to get her to stop, and used that to make it look like he was her friend and they were her enemy. Oh sure letting her keep the drugs is so good! But of course did he care if she died when he knew he was the executor of her will and would get a third regardless?

    What about that speech he gave at the funeral? That was low! No matter what the issues are, a funeral is not the place to bring up bad things and put down other people! He didn’t care about respecting Anna, he only wanted to trash the others in front of the cameras- the ET cameras, after ET paid him four million bucks for the rights! And he accused Virgie of wanting to sell the rights to Splash? He wanted the money!

    Remember how long it took her to decide to bury Daniel in the Bahamas? She originally said Calif, where she had always wanted to be buried with Marilyn, then after a month put him in the Bahamas. I guess she realized she’d have to live there forever to hide the baby from Larry and her family and she wanted Daniel nearby. If all was right they’d both be moved to California! Well if all was right, they’d both still be alive…

  • Katie

    And Larry Birkhead is the father! Dannielynn looks just like him. He knows he’s the father and so did Anna. She hadn’t been pregnant for 20 years, she knew how not to get pregnant, this was not a mistake or random accident, she and Larry planned to have a baby. Then when she turned against him Howard took her to the Bahamas and claimed it himself when he knows he’s not the father! I sure hope Larry can get his DNA test, and his daughter.

  • Jess

    God bless Anna Nicole. Rest In Peace.

  • ks

    This is just sick. They all have financial interests in anna. Obviously Stern is getting paid for giving ET exclusive footage of the funeral inside and the burial plus interview.Larry is selling his story to Access hollywood. The thing is even though Anna hated her mom, Virgie has never said anything hateful against her except about drugs maybe. I think Anna was a little resentful for being raised in a small town and when she went hollywood she got caught up and didn’t want to identify with her family. And Stern is shady, I think he loved her, but moving to the Bahamas was just a ploy to dodge paternity. Plus Stern is the beneficiary on her 7 life insurance policies (according to nancy grace) after daniel died. The whole thing is just sad.

    You guys need to lay off Virgie, she is just being a mother.

    Any mother would try to get their child off drugs and away from a pimp.

    Any mother would want to bury her own child, near her so she can visit the grave when she wants to.

    So you cold hard robots need to get a heart because you sure don’t have one.

  • Lesa

    I think it is cowardly what Anna & Howard did. They gave birth in the Bahamas to keep that child from his father (that is why they have not agreed to paternity tests which we all know could have happened ages ago). they also did not want that newborn drug tested

  • Howard is evil

    I agree with both Katie and Lesa. They said it perfectly.

  • Howard is evil

    I don’t know about the others, but I only posted once. I agree with their posts and I believe Howard is EVIL.

  • Bulletproof

    You are all clueless.
    Anna did not move to Bahamas to dodge Birkhead. She had enough money to pay bodyguards to keep Larry away from his daughter.
    Now listen to this because this is the truth here which will never come out just as the reason for M Monroe death.
    ANS was about to get over a billion $ from the Marshall estate.
    They moved to Bahamas to dodge not Birkhead but Uncle Sam. Typical move and ANS was not the first and not the last to do so.
    And second, those two deaths are not coincidental.
    I don’t think I have to finish the rest.

  • AddictedtoBAMZs+1

    This is MY only post, and I also see Stern as the most evil villian imaginable. He is so bad, so obvious it would be funny, if Daniel and Anna were not dead, and Larry had his baby. This man is disgusting, and somehow is getting away with what he has done for her money. Anna was vindictive enough to refuse to allow Larry to have the rights to his child, and that is pretty shocking. There is no doubt in my mind that Stern found this Bahamas loophole, and that is why the child was born there. Her son’s death certainly changed everything, she lost her focus, and Stern jumped right in. Horrible, evil loser. He sold the rights to the funeral to a tabloid TV show, and they filmed and broadcasted his entire, rambling, self-serving “eulogy”. Unfortunately, it was far from a eulogy. Instead he used the pulpit to grandstand and talk about himself! The number of times the words I, Me, and My were spoken by Stern said it all. It was all about him. I hope this guy is not allowed to carry out his evil plans to keep not only one man’s house, but another man’s baby as well. I am TEAM LARRY, TEAM DANNILYNN. (whew! I feel better! Thanks for the opportunity to vent, Jared…)

  • Angela

    Thank god Anna has been laid to rest at last. And it was right for her to be buried with her son in the Bahamas. The circus isn’t over. I am watching E! at the moment and they are talking about the funeral, and the battle over Dannilynn. This will be going on for weeks to come.

    I dont like Howard, I just don’t trust him. This is all too weird. First Daniel died, then Anna. Howard just wants one thing – Anna’s money. He is not Dannilynn’s father, she looks just like Larry, he is the father.

    You can thank a warped/twisted Florida Judge who took the rights of a mother to bury her child, and gave the rights to a pimp, for that circus of a funeral in the Bahamas.

  • Lill

    I take it nobody ever watched the Anna Nicole Show on ET? I take it nobody watched Kimmie’s interview on tv the other day? Anna Nicole did as Anna Nicole wanted. She chose who was in her life and who was not. Right now something tragic has happened to a woman who has had a tragic life. Everybody wants somebody to blame and they are pointing the finger and one man. Each person chooses their path and noone else can be blamed for the path they choose. IF Howard enabler of her drug use that makes him at fault for her death. If he did not enable her you think she would not have touched any drugs at all? You are naive to think this. All i ever saw from Anna Nicole up until recently was a lack of respect toward Howard Stern on her show in public he was her puppy that she knew she had and that he wasnt going anywhere no matter how much she kicked him he stayed. All this talk that another persons decisions are somebody elses blame is ridiculous. You are responsible for you and nobody else. I think Anna’s wishes need to be respected no matter what someone thinks of her. She wanted her and her son in the Bahamas they deserve to be there. They are gone that is just shells of souls that are gone. To move their bodies is just someone elses selfish desires. It was not Howard’s desire it was Anna’s. She also stated herself that her “mother” would never touch her child. So now that she is dead oh hell screw what this woman said b/c it was all HOward Stern and he pulled a string and she talked? Are you guys insane. I’m not saying that he doesnt have problems to stay in a relationship where you are no more important than the next man and to want to be with someone who on her show wanted to just get “laid” all the time, that says no self confidence or devotion to someone else. I think everybody just needs to quit trying to blame a single person for someone elses life choices and respect the wishes of the dead. Give her that. SHe had a hard life and was ridiculed a lot b/c of her lifestyle. Give the woman peace and respect her wishes and be done with it.

  • http://Google Trisha Ford

    I really think Anna was a very smart woman. She rose to fame on her own. I know she wanted to be known as a great personalty. Her LIFE WAS SHORTEN and I blame Howard K Stern for that, he gave her all those drugs. and I bet he was praying for her to die, and I believe he gave Drugs to Daniel on the way back from the airport. I’m sure Daniel didn’t know he was taking them. He probably just gave him a cokeacola when he got off the plane. AT least thats my idea of how he did it. Gee wasn’t that thoughtful of him.(ha ha). Why else would he have died so soon. He is guilty,guilty,guilty. Get that baby away from him before he kills her. And mark my words he will kill her when she gets that money. He said hewas getting 6,000,000.00 from Anna for being her lawyer so why not get it all. Howard is not dumb. he is smart.why else would he hang around for so long. It wasn’t for the love of Anna

  • http://www.angelpande777comcast.net angel777

    this was the perfect crime,come on howard speak the truth,you was giving anna nicole the drugs,and how weird that her son died the same way,you did not loved anna nicole, but you loved her money,you scum bag,i hope and wish, that you get no money out this.why dont the FBI, go after the howard and his friends,everybody, that was connected to howard stern should go to jail,for the crime they all commited,how about manslaughter instead of homicide.howard you are the worst scum i have ever known in my life.

  • abie

    What a scumbag Birkhead. He slept around to get a prize catch. He never loved Anna Nicole and treats women like garbage. Dannilynn will grown up seeing her father treating women like trash.

    Maybe larry could have been nice to Anna. May she rest in peace. What a trailer trash dad.

  • Oh please…

    What I want to know is why the fu.ck was opri at the funeral???? what a nosey bi.tch. How rude to be mingling with people who are grieving!!
