This could be one of the strangest funerals ever. A New Orleans woman attended her own funeral sitting on a bench with a cigarette holder in one hand and a champagne glass in the other.

It took some pretty extreme embalming to make this happen, but friends and family of Mickey Easterling, a New Orleans socialite who died recently at age 83, say she wanted it that way.

For her funeral, Easterling wore a hot pink boa and a pin that spelled out "#1 Bitch" in sparking stones.

While alive, Easterling supported many causes including childrens hospitals and Katrina rebuilding efforts.
