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.

People that think HK would have killed Anna and her son are really stupid......he didn't prescribe their medications and Anna and her son were adults to take whatever they wanted. So unless Howard was shoving it down their throats keep quite...or look into every single person that was involved in her and her sons life and knew about their drug use and didn't report it to police or her doctors...because that is all you hear in interviews they all knew about her abuse..but they didn't do sh*t about it ...they just blame Howard for it.

Steine does a great job of covering Anna Nicole. Regardless of how she got there, she made it from the dumps of Texas and become a night and shinning star. I like the fact that ET covers her. It is a known fact that 1/3 of the world has been mesmorized by Anna Nicole, firstly with the paternity test and secondly with the death of her son Danielle. Now her death and everything else. Everyone knows what channel to tune into when they need updates (ET) and is is great to have an "insider" scoop; instead of stories with heresay. Thank you ET you have done a great job of covering this story. Why wouldn't you focus on it if 33% of the population are watching it?

Thank goodness the public is now getting to know the facts about how these trashy TV shows work. They will lie and continue to lie about it. At least Harvey Leviin admitted on Larry King that sometimes pictures/videos are paid for. Honesty is always the best policy. Don't treat the public like we are idiots who will take in any crap you throw at us.
I would like any one who is as sick as I am of Entertainment Tonight to go to their website and leave them a comment about your feelings. Or write them a letter.
If it wasn't for ET Howard would have to do the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing or just go away. I am sick of him. He is no friend of Anna's. He and his friend Ron Rail have been living off of Anna for years and they want to continue to do so. If ET and the other shows would stop paying him and his family, he and his family would go away.
Anna was not a saint. She was a drug addict. You can not believe all the bad things she said about her mother anymore than you can believe what Howard says about her mother. He is the one getting all the money. Virgie is not. So she had plane tickets to visit her grandson's grave. So what? I would too if I wanted to see a loved one's grave Remember, it was Howard who encouraged Anna's drug use. It was Howard who planned with ET to sell her funeral rights right after she died. Before she even had an autopsy which was the very next day. It is Howard who is keeping a baby away from her natural father for the purposes of making money for the rest of his life.
Please let these TV shows who are lying to us how you feel. I am tired of these people lying outright. ET said on Larry King Live they do not pay for interviews which is an out and out lie!

Kathie is a phony    

How much did that slime bag Howard pay those "friends" to clap after his tacky ass speech! What a sleazy mother he is! He is trying to come off as her savior, when in reality, he murdered her and Daniel just as sure as he stole her money for over 10 years. The cops are on to him, and he is going down!

48. #33 D Day, she is not resting in peace, she is burning in hell where she belongs, and yeah, the cover is tacky everything about the funeral is tacky but it is perfect for her!

Posted at 1:44PM on Mar 2nd 2007 by Anna was just another slut

Wow, if you believe in hell, then I would assume you might be a Christian, but your words don't reflect that. After all, Christ says Judge not lest you be judged.

I cant believe how cruel we all have become. Hey lets face it Anna did what she thought she had to do to make it in this world. As far as I am concerned she did what she had to do to get away from her life the way she knew it. We can all sit here and judge her for her drug use or for her choice in a 1000 year old husband. But when its all said and done she lost her son. A child in which it was obvious how much she loved him and now she has lost her own life and there is another child in the middle of all of this her child that no one really seems to care about. Our world is all about money and everyone close to this child has there hand out. It is a very sad situation for this innocent baby girl. I guess all I have left to say is atleast she is in a better place then we are. For those of us who still believe in something. May Dannilynn have a better chance at life then what her mother did. Anna & Daniel rest in peace.
