Anna's Mom Tries to Stop Funeral!

3/2/2007 12:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: A Bahamian judge is currently hearing arguments from Virgie's attorneys. The petition hearing began at 10:30 AM EST. The judge will make a decision this morning, based on the arguments.

TMZ has confirmed that lawyers for Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, have filed a petition in a Bahamas court, essentially trying to stop the funeral before Anna's body is buried.

Currently, the hearse carrying Anna's body has come to a stop, just yards from the church where the funeral is set to take place.

The mother is a media whore! I understand as a mother I would want my child near my home but damn it's been 3 weeks since ANS died. At some point you have to just say, let her rest with her son. Thats what she wanted anyway.

This sorry excuse for a mother is only trying to fulfil her own sick desires without any regard or repsect to her daughter. She even has the balls to be late to her funeral- in a strtech limo that is being paid for by who?? She deserves cheers? I think she deserves a one way bus ticket back to the Texas trailer park where she obviously belongs.

After learning last night that there were 7 life insurance policies which Howard gets (since Daniel is dead), I'm with Virgie on this -- I believe Howard killed her daughter and her grandson.

I also believe that Howard influenced Anna completely, especially after Daniel died. She was so drugged up -- all he had to do was "say this" and "say that" and she'd do it. I don't think she knew what was up or down at the end.

He also influenced her to go to the Bahamas because he knew of their laws and how they favored him. ET is paying Howard big bucks via an outsourcing firm -- $3M for the funeral.

If he doesn't get indicted for murder -- there will also be be wrongful death lawsuits.

In addition, he's trying to strong arm Larry into agreements. Howard is a snake.

If it was my daughter I would respect her wishes. I would remember how hurt and sad Anna was after Daniel passed away............she will never find forgiveness from Anna in this life or the next for what she is doing...............let her go,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,no wonder Anna kept her distance from this women, mother or not doesn't make what she is doing right....
