Lying Atop Marilyn Ain’t Cheap

For anybody who dreamed of lying next to Marilyn Monroe, your chance is here. A Los Angeles widow is auctioning the burial plot directly above the sex symbol who died on Aug. 5, 1962.

The widow, who’s trying to pay off her $1.6 million Beverly Hills mortgage, is willing to yank her dead husband’s remains out of the crypt to make room for some other lucky…uh, dead person.

Her mortgage will be obliterated if she can collect from the auction winner. Bidding has topped $10 million on eBay with a week left before the auction ends. The auction is headlined “Crypt Above Marilyn Monroe For Sale,” and tempts potential bidders with the opportunity to spend eternity next to a blonde bombshell.

The only downside: Hugh Hefner of Playboy will be buried in the crypt next to Monroe.

Yuck.

And Hef bought his crypt for a relative steal, paying $75,000 in 1992 because, as he said, “Spending eternity next to Marilyn is too sweet to pass up.”

    Somebody must have retracted a bid — the auction bid is back down to $4.6 million as of 10:30 am on Aug. 18.
