Virgie Denied! Judge Rejects Appeal

2/26/2007 1:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The judge who ruled on who gets control of Anna Nicole Smith's body wants the starlet buried, and will not let her mom stand in his way.

The appeal filed by Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, just moments after Seidlin's teary decision to release Anna's body to Dannielynn's court-appointed guardian Thursday, was rejected early Monday morning. In the court papers obtained by TMZ, Seidlin claims that a stay would increase the "potential for adverse consequences," adding that "Arthur seeks an indefinite stay and has shown no intent to expedite the proceedings."
