Jade Goody, the British reality star who died of cervical cancer last week, will be honored with a statue or a plaque near her childhood home, the Mirror reports. Meanwhile, the Sun reports grieving husband Jack Tweed bought a $495,000 private estate four days after his wife died. Goody reportedly left Tweed nothing in her will, but he earned nearly $200,000 from photo shoots.

The news comes amidst plans for Goody’s—alcohol-free—funeral, the Mirror reports. Last year, the star said, “I don't want anyone to have a booze-up when I'm dead. They should have a cup of tea and be crying.”
