Blog_mx0060871

Anna Nicole Smith will finally be laid to rest in the Bahamas tomorrow following weeks of bitter court battles in Florida. It is reported that Anna’s burial will come following an over the top memorial service at an undisclosed church wth 300 guests.

Anna’s friend, Patrik Simpson of Beverly Hills told the Associated Press “It will be a very beautiful, Anna Nicole send-off. Of course it will be over the top because it’s Anna Nicole.”

It is unclear if it there will be an open casket but Anna will be wearing a dress designed for her by Simpson’s partner Pol Atteu and there will be lots of pink flowers and a well known singer will be performing. “It will be something very beautiful, very private, very over the top and very pink,” simpson added.

The burial will take place at Lakeview Memorial Gardens & Mausoleums where Anna’s tragic son Daniel is already buried. It will be a much more intimate affair than at the church with about only 30 people.

Paris is making headlines again for being on the wrong side of the law. The actress got stopped at 11pm Tuesday night for driving without her headlights switched on in her pale blue $190,000 Bentley. When the cops checked her license they discovered it had been suspended.

The luxury car she reportedly bought herself for Christmas has been impounded and could be held for up to 30 days and if the judge revokes her probation she could face up to 90 days in jail, a lengthier probation sentence, fines or additional community service obligations.

Her spokesman, Elliot Mintz, said his client was not aware her driving privileges had been curtailed.

Paris was photographed today in West Hollywood and is also pictured here on Saturday at a pre-Oscars party where she was driving the Bentley. Today she was picked up by an assistant in her range rover…. I guess she got the message this time.

Looks like Bobby Brown just can’t stay out of jail.  He was arrested for the second time in a year on Sunday night at his daughter’s cheeleading competition in Canton, Massachusetts on a warrant for failing to appear at an October child support hearing.

In October Boston native Brown paid $11,000 in deliquent child support to Kim Ward the mother of two of his children.  He was threatened with arrest if he stepped back into Massachusetts.  It’s not known if he still owes child support.

Watch out Whitney!

Latin Pop Sensation Ricky Martin is on the move again.  He is selling his waterfront mansion in Miami Beach for $16.9 million after buying it in May 2005 for $10 million.  He purchased the 7 bed, 9 bathroom Mediterranean style mansion after selling his other mansion one block away in May 2005 for $10.6 million. Reports were that he sold it because it was haunted hence moving only one block away into his new home.  His neighbours on the very exclusive bay front road included Robin & Barry Gibb, Matt Damon & Shakira.  Jennifer Lopez also owned a home up the road but has since sold.  Perhaps Martin is looking for something much bigger if reports are correct that he intends to adopt children from underprivileged nations and raise them in his home.

What do you get for that much money?…………..

6 acres of trees and flowers. A main residence that is 7000 square feet with a grand master suite that looks out onto breathtaking city views. Terraces and a pool and a 2700 square foot guest cottage that offers room for office & staff. Of course one must always have room for staff.  Geez,  the guest cottage alone is about twice the size of my house!

Now don’t go thinking you can go snooping around, the property is double gated and secure according to the realtor. What else would you expect of The Queen’s residence?
