Anna's Funeral -- For a Price

3/1/2007 11:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's funeral is proving to be one of the most expensive events of all time ... for the people covering it!

TMZ has learned that the Bahamian gated community which houses the church where Anna's funeral will take place tomorrow, is desperately trying to cash in on the media spectacle -- by charging news crews and paparazzi agencies thousands of dollars to get inside.

Each crew that wants to get inside the community of Sandy Port is required to pay $2000 per camera and $5000 to set up a live feed ... and they want their money tonight! Interested parties must submit a form with an authorized credit card number before midnight, or they won't be allowed through the gate on Friday.

We're told one photo agency has already forked over $15,000 for special access inside the grounds.

Dont believe everything you hear and I cant wait for you all to eat this horse sh*t your shoveling when Anna' s autopsy report comes out. And what makes you think that a 20 year old college student can be forced to take drugs prescription or not means you have not a brain in your head. Howard must be alot stronger than he looks to hold down Anna and Daniel and give them these drugs or prescriptions

So now the church, is making money off of ANS death! Let's see there's HKS and Milstein who sold the rights to the funeral, the former Immigration Minister is singing, the judge is getting his own tv show.

This proves without a doubt that not only howie's only reason for ANS body was money and also proves that shithole country with the low lifes that live there wanted those bodies there for the money and any money that baby will make and covered up the son's murder.
Everyone should boycott anything dealing with any of them and round up all the illegal aliens from that country that snuck into the USA and send them back to that garbage dump

You can buy anything in the Bahamas. Residence laws? No problem. Birth certificate rules? No problem. Child welfare visits? No problem. I wonder how much it will cost Mr. Smith to get his son out of their bribe ridden dirt?

Good for the Church. I can just imagine how much the news media will be making off being there. They should have to pay.
