Anna's Mom Wants the Body: Round Two

2/23/2007 6:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Virgie Arthur, the mother of Anna Nicole Smith, has filed court papers asking a judge to issue an emergency order stopping the release of her body to the court-appointed guardian of Dannielynn.
Court docs: Anna Nicole Smith
In the documents, filed today in Florida, Arthur says that "as natural mother and next of kin" of Anna, she is "entitled to make the decision regarding where [she], her child, is to be buried.

TMZ is told a judge will decide whether to grant Arthur's request, or deny it, paving the way for Anna's burial in the Bahamas.

This lady is pathetic. YOU LOST DUMBASS. Anna doesn't want to be with you and she would have a fit if she knew what you were trying to pull. Let her go and be with her son. The one person that she truly loved!

No matter how "DRUGGED OUT" Virgie wants to claim her daughter was. I have to say that Anna knew what in the hell she was talking about.

GAWD I HATE THIS WOMAN!! I wish the judge had allowed her to be questioned more on the stand.

In reading the other enteries on this subject, I too decided and sent the following to the Bahamas:

FYI.....There will be sOOoo MANY people boycott the Bahamas if you don't get that DNA test done on Anna Nicole Smiths baby (one DannieLynn). She is in GREAT danger until the biological father receives her. There was more than one person involved in the deaths of Anna Nicole and Daniel. It will be proved and YOUR Hon. Shane Gibson is going to be dragged into this mess. You might want to just get the DNA testing done, and the baby to natural father to prevent a scandal that will be beyond repair to the Bahamas. If you do the right thing, then the Bahamas could come out of this looking good.

Sincerely,
Ms. SYG (I sent my name)

The more I read and hear about Virgie the more suspicious I am of her. This last ditch effort to stop the transport of Anna's body to the Bahamas for proper and respectful burial just sounds plain spiteful on Virgie's part to me. Out of love for her daughter can she not put her differences aside and let her daughter be laid to rest in peace next to her son? Anna's remains are decomposing for God's sake! Let Anna rest in PEACE! This is NOT ABOUT YOU VIRGIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a sad case. THey should just bury her next to her son and that is it. My father had my brother burried upstae in New York and my mother wanted to file court papers to have him burried on Long Island. The lawyer said to us, "you will be fighting over a body as if it was a piece of furniture, you child soul is no longer in that body." I think Virgie Arthur is selfish and if she wanted to be in Anna Nicole's life, she should of been there for the last 39 years! I will be shocked if a judge gives her custody of the baby. THink about it. She raised Anna Nicole who was on druges repeatively in her life, Anna's son also raised by Virgie for 9 years, was on drugs...what is going to happen to this poor child?! Anna's death is now entertainment and a money making story for everyone involved in this and they should all be embarrased that they are making money because of someone's death. This includes the judge, lawyers, Virgie Arthur (ummm best friends with Splash TV?) , Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern. It is said how people behave. THey need to place the body at rest next to her son in the plots purchased by Anna Nicole. (she brought her own plots, where else would she want to be burried?)

ANNA MOM SHOULD HAVE ALL RIGHTS TO HER DAUGHTER BODY. SHES THE ONE THAT GAVE BIRTH TO HER. IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD WOULDNT YOU WANT TO MAKE THAT DECISION. DANIELS BODY SHOULD BE EXUMED SO THEY CAN BOTH BE AT REST TOGETHER IN TEXAS/ FORGET THE BLOODY BAHAMAS THE ONLY REASON THEY WERE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE WAS TO PREVENT THE PATERNITY OF THE BABY.. LET THE MOM HAVE THE BODY OF THE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER SHE GAVE BIRTH TOO. SO SHE CAN BE NEAR HER DAUGHTER AND GRANDSON.

What is up with this woman ? Give it up will you.
The only reason you want the body is so you can create a circus sideshow back in Texas and charge people to see the grave (in your back yard).

We can see that you want revenge, but not in this way.
Let her go.

Whatever anyone thinks of Virgie, it seems that Florida law may be on her side. She is the next of kin, and baby Dannielynn is not old enough to claim the body (even with a Guardian ad lidum).

Virgie testified that she wanted to bring Daniel home to be buried with his mother in Texas. Danny wasn't Bahamian and the Bahamas weren't his home. He just happened to die on his first day there, and HKS didn't want them to bring him home because he was running from the paternity case -- so HOWARD bought lots in the Bahamas.

Leagally Virgie has a point. Morally she should let her be buried next to her son. As far as the body rotting who cares.Anna didn't care about abusing it when she was alive. The bottom line is Anna created this shit before she vacated the building.

If Anna hated her Mom so much why did she call her when Daniel died?? Why would she have cared to call if she hated her as much as she claimed...I think Howard K. Stern might have made there relationship harder then maybe it really was so he would have Anna all to himself. It seemed like anybody who tried to get close to her he ran off...just a thought.
TEAM LARRY BIRKHEAD!!!
