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.

#35 James Brown was enbalmbed right away, that is what helps slow down the decompose process. Anna was not enbalmbed for almost two weeks.

As bad as this sounds, let the body be buried and then fight over where, they can always exhume the body (gross!). But let her be buried with at least half of her body left!

YES THE JUDGE MAY HAVE NOT FOLLOWED THE LAW BY APPOINTING CUSTODY OF THE BODY TO THE GUARDIAN BUT..... THAT VIRGIE ARTHUR IS A LOOSER POOR ANNAS BODY IS DECOMPOSING AND NOW IT HAS TO STAY LONGER IN FLORIDA IM SURE WHEN SHE PASSES ON SHE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A NICE FUNERAL DONE FOR HER BUT YOU KNOW WHAT SHE IS JUST SELFISH LIKE THE REST OF THEM I WISH POOR DANIEL WAS ALIVE THEN MAYBE HE COULD TAKE CARE OF HIS BABY SISTER. THIS IS ALL JUST A SHAME HONESTLY I WISH ANNA WOULD HAVE JUST UPDATED HER WILL AND NONE OF THIS STUFF WOULD BE GOING ON.

As a fellow mother, I have compassion for Virgie. I don't think any mother wants anything bad for her children and grandchildren. Drugs don't just harm the person abusing them, but everyone around. Even Judge Seidlin said that people on drugs take flight from those who try to really help, as in not enable.

I also know how much damage a controlling/ manipulative/conniving kind of person (H K Stern) can do. Been there. I believe he had a lot to do with the falling out between Anna and her mother, and in the throes of her addiction, she chose Howard because he was facilitating her drug use.

debra - you're probably right. Wecht has already said publicly that the drug picture for Annas would be different than her son's. So there's no murder here. Just deep deep sadness. That's what pneumonia is about.

i think the body should go with the mother and Daniel too.
The only reason Anna buried Daniel in the Bahamas is because she didnt want to come back to the states and face the paternity test. She has NO other ties to the Bahamas whatsoever and since the paternity is going to come out anyway- she might as well be with the family that truly loved her and the scumbag that kept her on drugs for years. HKS is the devil and all of his true motives are going to come out.

So here I am minding my own business and God speaks to me and says: "Jarry--you have to tell the morons that Anna is a corpse, like a rotten pumpkin by now and I hate rotten pumpkins. If you try to move her , her arm will fall or her eyeballs will roll out of her head and do you know how stinky rotten worm infestation smells?" He also keeps telling me how all of his mistakes are in the south and California and if he could do it again, he would not make anyone in Texas, Louisiana or Califonia. He HATES them all.

He also knows the whole incest thing with Daniel was not very good and he is not happy with that crap either. Daniel is the father.

The only thing I can say is GOD HATES ANNA AND BRITNEY reeal bad and I can't seem to change his mind. Oh--he still loves PARIS though!!

# 54 Virgie cant bring Daniel home. The next of kin for Daniel is Billy and he said in the phone testimony when the judge asked him about exhuming Daniel he said NO. So I can see why he went and said that ANS should be buried next to Daniel in the Bahamas. Just let the poor woman rest in peace already!

Legally, I think she is entitled to her daughter's body. But, Anna wanted to be with her son so I hope Virgie loses. Unless, of course, they could bring back Daniel and bury them together here in the US.

#35 James Brown was in a hospital when he died and was embalmed in a normal span of time, ANS was not embalmed until last a week ago because of Birdhead and his DNA deal. That will cause the body...even in cold storage...not to embalm properly. I will tell you from the pictures of James Brown in the casket they paraded everywhere that by the last opening of the casket he was looking ragged.
Also, Veggie was confronted on the stand in FL with a contract she signed with Splash for $30,000. A journalist with her when she visited Daniels grave for his 21st birthday was from Spalsh but she claims he was a friend. The woman lied alot on the stand and even corrected herself on the stand several times.
#37 She said she a Drug Enforcement Officer on the Dr Keith show which they reran the other day while this was going on. She gets a $3500. pension/month from that she said in court this week.

Anna and Daniel are gone. They would have no idea if someone was "paying respect" to them by standing over their rotting shells. Paying respect is something that she be delegated to living. Leave them alone Vergie. It doesn't really make a difference where they are buried as long as they are together. Anna may have not be a model mom, but with Vergie as a role model, it is surprising that she did as well as she did by Daniel. One thing is certain - she loved him and he loved her. I didn't see that in Vergie's relationship with her. I can think of a lot of places that would be a worse final resting place for a body than the beautiful Bahamas!
