Howard & Baby: Bury Her in the Bahamas Already!

2/27/2007 3:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Howard Stern and Anna Nicole SmithUPDATE: Richard Milstein has just filed his appeal asking the court to uphold Judge Seidlin's ruling give him custody of the body on behalf on baby Dannielynn.

Attorneys for Howard K. Stern have filed an appeal to stop Virgie from getting custody of Anna Nicole's body.

Judge Larry Seidlin ruled last week that custody of Anna's remains should go to her five-month-old daughter Dannielynn and her court-appointed guardian. The guardian decided that Anna should be buried in the Bahamas next to her son Daniel. Anna's mother, Virgie Arthur, filed an appeal asking for that judgment to be overturned and that she be given custody -- to bury Anna in her home state of Texas.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to hear Virgie's case, and yesterday ordered that Anna's body remain in Florida pending review of the case. Attorneys for Dannielynn's guardian and Howard K. Stern were told that they had to file their motions by 2:00 PM ET today. Stern's side did just that. While Stern and the guardian agree that Anna should be buried in the Bahamas, Stern's attorney admits they have differing opinions on the law that governs that decision.

I know that if I had the choice I'd be buried next to my son. So they should just let Anna be buried in the Bahamas. That way she can be with her son for eternity!!

What the hell happened to Eddie!    

Why bury her in the Bahamas ? That is where you intend on eluding the law, Howard ? Did her Son wantto be buried there ? He lived in CA and was just visiting when he died. Leave Anna in US and bring her son back. Bury them in CA. If Anna had not gotten pregnant, she would never have moved to the Bahamas.

There should never been a guardian, she has next of kin - her Mother.

Does anyone have the best interests of Anna Nicole or her daughter in this circus? Is everyone involved just looking for their 15 minutes of fame? Please let this lady rest in peace and find the baby's father and let this child have a life. Barbi

Its sad to say but by the time she finally gets a funeral, it will have to be closed casket ,cause she'll probably already have rotted away by the way these people are going.

Maybe this is the mother's way of trying to make amends. When you have a child that dies, and so much to be sorry for, maybe Virgie is feeling bad for not doing more to save her. The mother has her own money, she makes $3500/month from her pension, so I dont think she's financially motivated. She wants her baby home, and plans oln getting Daniel as well.

Larry is going to get the baby, the baby should be able to visit her mom's grave without having to get a passport!

I wish that old beeotch would croak so Anna can kick her azz. Enough is enough, They are going to keep Anna's body above ground as long as they did James Brown. Let her rest.

She should be buried next to her son. He's been the only constant in her life. It’s obvious this would be the appropriate resting place.

I agree !!! Enough baggering her while she has passed on to be with her son in spirit. Let her be next to her son in the last place that she saw him...in a happy moment of her life, the birth of her daughter.

Who cares if the expenses are too much to visit for the family. They were estranged for YEARS !!!! Its the baby who will visit most, not the estranged family. Besides, the family is only ANS half-siblings, not full blood siblings.

from imdb.com
Has five half-siblings, including half-sister Donna Hogan.
