Verdict Reached on Anna Nicole's Remains

Verdict Reached on Anna Nicole's Remains

This afternoon, Judge Larry Seidlin handed down the verdict on what should be done with Anna Nicole Smith's remains. This trial has been quite a circus and as you can see the Judge became very emotional while announcing his decision. Seidlin, whose methods during the trial have been slightly unorthodox to say the least, ruled to give the remains to one of Anna's lawyers, Richard Milstein, the current guardian of Dannielynn. Seidlin also (strongly) urged Milstein to bury Anna Nicole next to her son in the Bahamas.

While this seems like the correct decision, Seidlin's emotionality (coupled with the rumor that he really wants his own TV show) strike us as a little insincere. This is only the first step in cleaning up the loose ends left in Anna Nicole's wake, but at least for the time being it seems her body is in the right hands.

Update: Minutes after the verdict, Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern announced together that Anna Nicole will be buried in the Bahamas.

This whole thing is a little too bizarre.

I'm with IMA. And the baby is NOT HKS! I guarantee it's Larry's baby! Yeah, HKS may be obsessed with ANS, but that doesn't give him a right to claim a baby that ISN'T his. He is waaaayyyy creepy! Ugh, he makes me sick, especially because Larry testified that HKS took ANS EXTRA drugs when she was in the hospital (pregnant) trying to get off the drugs! If he loved her, he wouldn't have enabled her. And that's my opinion. RIP Anna Nicole Smith! I am glad that she gets to be next to her son! :)

I think the judge made the right decision by having anna nicole buried with her son. I can't stand her crazy, money digging mother who suddenly appears out of nowhere to claim her and her baby. Why are there mothers like that in this world?!

I think it would be horrid if her mother somehow got her buried in Texas, away from her son in the Bahamas, away from the home she was starting with her family there. Her mom seems like an idiot.

I am glad to see Anna finally being put to rest, but the judge's fake tears and rehearsed choking up (first semester drama majors, you will probably have something like this on your mid-term exam) were just horrible.

Anna Nicole dumped Birkhead when he was pressuring to get help for her drug addiction. She didn't think she had a problem ran to HKS. Stern seems like an opportunistic pusher. If he loved her so much why did he leak the flippin' Clown Video? He sums it all up perfectly when he tells her "this will be worth money"! If he is the father then give up a DNA sample and prove it. A paternity test couldn't be anymore humiliating for him as the Clown Video was for her.

I'm with IMA. I watched the verdict during lunch hour and it was really weird. He cried while he gave his decision.

Ouch! Glad not to be her, her mom is nuts I know it seems like she pushed her mom away and turned to drugs, but something is usually very wrong at home when an underage girl starts stripping and doing drugs. Abuse of some sort. I'm glad that woman didn't get her body. Unfortunately, I don't think Larry or Howard are the father of this child. I think it's someone else. Can't believe Howard sat outside while Anna and Larry were doin' it. But seriously, why would any man in his right mind actually have a relationship with ANS? He's gotta be some type of crazy too!

i watched some of this on tv. that judge is a) full of himself and b) a really big douchebag. his actions are more than enough to provide grounds for appeal.

Larry Birkhead has always wanted one thing, since Anna became pregnant - to be a father to his child. He's not a jerk. I firmly believe he's a good guy for the most part.

MBM I wonder if Howard is going to pull a Britney when the world finds out he isn't the Dannielynn's father. Ha! BTW, shouldn't the judge be...um..IMPARTIAL?? Unprofessional.

I still call bulls**t on Vergie wanting to visit the graves. She didn't see or call Daniel for at least 10+ years when he was alive, then she gets Splash to take her to his grave and take pictures.I can't believe that shrew came out in front of cameras and announced with Larry & Howard that Anna would be buried with Daniel but still filed an appeal. Some mother.:MOB:
