Inside Anna's Funeral

3/2/2007 3:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Outside, it was a circus. Inside, it was beautiful.

Larry Birkhead, Howard K. Stern, Virgie Arthur and several hundred more of Anna Nicole Smith's closest friends and family paid their last respects to the former Playboy Playmate and TRIMSPA spokesperson in a private ceremony at Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Nassau earlier today.

After the service, Anna's coffin was moved to Lake View cemetery, for the burial -- the final chapter in the tumultuous life of Anna Nicole Smith ... perhaps.

Splash News has been hired as the official photographer of the funeral. Proceeds from the sale of this and other photographs are being donated to the Dannielynn Hope Trust Fund.

RIP. I just hope that where ever she rests that it is with the son that she loved. And if Daniels father moves his remains to Texas that Anna's remains goes with him. That is what they should be fighting about.

So, Rita Cosby just said that Howard used the end of his speech to take pot shots. The hell?? I guess with Virgie holding things up, we can't expect everyone else to behave, but still. What a mess.

Damn are you watching Rita Cosby's account about the funeral on MSNBC!!!! She said both Virgie and Larry got up and said some very nice personal things about Anna, but that HOWARD got up there and used his time to talk about the legal stuff.

He said that everything that happened in court was a lie and and the "so called" family members who held up the funeral never really loved her and apparently he looked right at Virgie! I mean damn, he may, hell we all may feel that way but to get up and do that at a funeral! He is no better than she. He is lowclass to bring all that stuff up at the funeral service. Damn shame if you ask me. I can't stand him.

Oh and then he promised anna he would protect "their" baby. Whatever.

I thought there was not suppose to be any pictures taken inside... But of course i should of know that was a farce....whats this about a Tiara?
And Vergie needs to move on with her life... Anna didnt want her in around she needs to go mess up her other kids lives and leave Anna and Daniel alone... and Daniels dad needs to stay out things... all these people want is money! And what sucks is all these damn Tc stations and reporters are willing to pay it!

It was reported on MSN Howard took the opportunity to attack Anna's family and protect his own image at the funeral. No couth! This is not the time to attack...

My God you gotta love TMZ. I have been watching this awful stream feed from NBC all morning and all I got a good shot of was Rita Crosby powerdering her damned nose and preening for the camera before anything happened and another goofus who announced his blackberry private telephone number to the world and then complained for five minutes about half the world phoning him while TMZ is the first to hit us with the real deal - photos of inside the church. You guys are the best.
