Anna Nicole gets ‘over-the-top’ funeral 

Anna Nicole Smith’s body is finally set to be laid to rest. And the late model’s funeral will be an appropriately "over-the-top" affair befitting her larger-than-life personality, a friend involved in planning the service told the Associated Press.

"It will be a very beautiful Anna Nicole send-off," Anna pal Patrik Simpson said. "Of course it will be over the top because it’s Anna Nicole."

The burial is set for today at 10:30 a.m. in the Bahamas. In keeping with what a Miami judge determined to be Anna’s wishes, she will be buried next to her son, Daniel.

Viewers of Anna’s reality show will vividly recall her love of pink, the flower color scheme for the funeral. About 300 guests are expected to attend, and according to Patrik, there will be a performance by a noted guest.

It’s a relief to know Anna Nicole will finally rest in peace beside her son.

Heath and Michelle: Trouble?

Just recently, the buzz on Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams was talk (never confirmed) that they had secretly gotten married, sparked when both were seen wearing bands on their ring fingers. Now the rumor mill is cranking in the opposite direction, with speculation that the couple is headed for a split.

A rift is said to have been caused between the "Brokeback Mountain" co-stars when Michelle hit the roof over Heath’s bad Valentine’s Day behavior. While she was in their hometown of NYC, Heath was reportedly partying it up at Hollywood hot spot Teddy’s — with a gaggle of lady admirers.

(For the record, no one is alleging that the Aussie actor actually succumbed to temptation.)

But following the V-Day incident, "they had a huge fight, and they’re not speaking," a source told the New York Daily News.

Still, the parents of daughter Matilda, 16 months, attended the Oscars together. This ultra-private couple always keeps us guessing.

Call PETA on Pete!

Just when you thought Pete Doherty’s antics couldn’t get any crazier: A report has surfaced that the out-of-control Babyshambles frontman might have actually peddled pot to penguins.

The British rocker, who has a long history of legal troubles related to substance abuse, reportedly took his on-again girlfriend, supermodel Kate Moss, on a seemingly tame date to Cotswold Wildlife Park in England.

There, paparazzi snapped him tossing what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette to a flock of penguins.

According to the U.K.’s Sun, an eyewitness said, "Everyone knew he was smoking grass. He was joking about getting the penguins stoned. He threw them his joint and it looked like one penguin gulped it down. It seemed very wobbly."

Hey, Pete, stick to polluting your own system and leave the poor penguins alone!

Selita: Still Single

Model Selita Ebanks has refuted the rumor that she and brand-new beau Nick Cannon got married after a whirlwind courtship of only three weeks. The singer-actor, 26, was said to have wed the 24-year-old beauty in Las Vegas during NBA All-Star weekend.

Selita told E! News that when she heard the rumor, "I hadto laugh a lot. You know it’s a little scary because it’s almost a domino effect and it’s like, first we were just a hot couple and then we were married. Only God knows what else is going to come out."

But that doesn’t mean things aren’t going swimmingly for the lovebirds. Selita also gushed, "He definitely puts a smile on my face and I do that for him, as well. I’ve never been happier. So, you know, we are two young people just living life."

Cute couple. Good luck, you two!
