Virgie: Howard's Making Millions Off Dead Anna

2/21/2007 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Angrily deflecting questions about getting paid by various sources after her daughter's death, Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, accused Howard K. Stern of turning huge profits himself.

After taking questions about being paid by a paparazzi agency, Arthur charged, "The only one who's ever made any money off my daughter is that man right there," pointing to Stern. She added, "I heard that "ET" is buying her death funeral ... for a million bucks."

Judge Larry Seidlin squelched the flying accusations in an effort to remove the topic from discussion in his court as the parties attempt to decide what will happen to Anna's body.

HKS is a blood-sucking parasite. He should be indicted for the murders of both ANS & her son. All he could see in ANS was a free meal ticket!!!

Ok, there it is, Virgie is making $ off of her dead daughter! Was that a big Surprise? How anyone can even act like they care once the their secret is told is awful! She points fingers at HKS but she doesn't start to cry until she is caught in the rat trap with her hand out! Amazing how this judge favors this money hungry mothe rof Anna Nicole! Anna may have been on drugs but Virgie is suppose to be sober today on the stand & she can't even answer questions that a5yr. old would know! It must be genetic huh? IDIOT Mom for sure, thank god she isn't my mom! I'm sure Anna is roling in that morgue!

We have Howard taping Anna 8 months pregnant asking her if she's on mushrooms and talking about how much money he could get from taping Anna who is clearly out of it.

The judge needs to see this VERY DISTURBING video.

The mother of Anna Nicole is truly one crazy woman. There is no way this judge should allow for the body of Anna Nicole to be taken to Texas, and taking Daniel's body going to the Bahamas? The ridiculousness of this is truly getting out of control. I pray the judge takes this as it appears, Anna chose to bury her child in the Bahamas and she wanted to be buried with her son. This mother is a nut job.

I'm predicting that Judge Moron is going to give the body to the lying sack of shit aka Virgie. THAT'S WRONG WRONG WRONG. Anna will never rest in peace if her mother keeps visiting her grave.

They are BOTH profiting from Anna's death! Virgie is lying - she clams up and says "ask me again" when asked if she is making money!!

Howie is a whole other situation - they are both crazy!

I think it is obvious that her mother only cares about the spotlight, it is jsut disgusting how she is acting up there. Why is it no one cared this much about Anna when she was alive???? Please let the woman be buried with her son where EVERYONE knows she would want to be, she is dead SOMEONE please let her rest in peace!!!!!

I believe Florida law does not give the parents the right to a body when there is a child involved. Howard is the executor of the will and the legal father of the child. The body should go to Howard for burial.

Of course Anna's estate should get the money from any sale of the funeral coverage. But...HKS is NOT a beneficiary of the estate.

I trust Howard to run Anna's estate in the showy, glitzy fashion that she would have wanted it run. She would not want to be in some hole in Texas -- she wanted EXPOSURE -- from early on when she was dancing with poles and exposing to Playboy.

Long before HKS, Anna Nicole Smith had turned away from her mother's style of living for the life of a celebrity.

I agree with the mom, they should both be buried in Texas. They have no business being left in the Bahamas! Nothing but bad has come out of that place for ANS and her son.

The only reason why ANS distanced herself from her mom is because of the straight tough love her mom gave her. ANS was a drug addict and was completely controlled by HKS.

As far as why the mom is so close to Larry B. Even though she just met him is obviously because she feels he is the true father of her grandchild and they have been in contact over the phone!! So HKS lawyer needs to shut the fuck up because that has nothing to do with why their in court today.

This woman couldn't even remember the day her daughter died? Wasn't it convenient that she started crying at that point and got confused. I don't care how bad she is with numbers, her daughter just died and she should know when she died!!
