Virgie: Howard's Making Millions Off Dead Anna

2/21/2007 1:45 PM PST
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.
