Anna Nicole Smith was buried today after long court battles, paternity fights, and some more court battles. Howard K. Stern stepped up the podium to read his eulogy and a guest told Hollyscoop exclusively that parts of Stern's eulogy was more like a defense plea rather than a tribute to the Playboy pinup.
Howard later attempted to single out Smith's "so-called family members" and vowed to protect and fight for Smith until death.
After the ceremony, Smith's brown coffin was taken to Lakeview Memorial Gardens & Mausoleum. At that time there was a 20-minute graveside service attended by about 30 intimate guests preceded by her burial alongside her son Daniel.
