Star wanted burial in California

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Anna Nicole Smith’s estranged mother tearfully acknowledged Wednesday that her daughter last told her she wanted to be buried in California near her idol Marilyn Monroe, an admission that could hurt the woman’s fight to have the pinup laid to rest in her native Texas.

Virgie Arthur said her last conversation with her daughter about her burial came more than 10 years ago.

“Wherever the stars are buried, that’s where she wanted to be buried,” said Arthur, a heavyset woman with bleached blond hair.
