Will Hugh Hefner Also Buy the Tomb Above Marilyn Monroe For Sale?

August 17, 2009

As Count reported, the plot above Marilyn Monroe is for sale at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetary! After hearing this, I just had to add to this saga!

Marilyn’s plot was originally bought by Marilyn’s ex husband and NY Yankees Baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, who sold it to a woman named Elsie Poncher, after divorcing from Monroe in 1954.

Yes, DiMaggio did not want to be resting above Marilyn’s plot after they divorced! Was he that mad at the time? He sold his own plot to be away from Marilyn? Elsie Poncher’s  deceased husband has been resting above Marilyn for years. He will now be moving elsewhere, and in return, Elsie will be getting Millions.

Did you know that Hugh Hefner owns the plot next to Marilyn?  Hugh bought the plot next to Marilyn in 1992 for $75,000. Throughout the years, there have been reports that Hugh actually wanted to be above Marilyn’s plot, but the space had been taken by Elsie Poncher’s husband. One rumor I heard was that Hugh wanted to be buried/resting above Marilyn, lying face down. I think that rumor was mixed up with Elsie Poncher’s husband who did in fact get buried/laid to rest face down above Marilyn’s plot!

Buried face down??? Yes, Elsie Poncher said her husband is face down so he can “see” Marilyn. Just to “see” her? Interesting position-think about that one.

Will Hef take a bid for the plot above Marilyn? If he moved above Marilyn, would he sell the plot next to her’s? Would he give the plot to a friend?

Could Anna Nicole Smith be a candidate if Hef moved his plot above Marilyn? Just after Anna’s death, did you know that Anna Nicole Smith’s sister Donna Hogan contacted Hef to see if Anna could take his plot next to Marilyn? Do you think there’s a chance Anna Nicole Smith will get Hef’s current plot, and Hef will take the one above Marilyn? Chances are slim, especially since Anna Nicole is buried all the way down in the Bahamas.

The bid for the plot on ebay is currently at US $4,502,099.00! There have been 32 takers. The sales pitch to purchase the tomb says this on the ebay page:

“Here is a once in a lifetime and into eternity opportunity to spend your eternal days directly above Marilyn Monroe.  This crypt in the famous Westwood Cemetary in West Los Angeles currently occupied above Marilyn Monroe is being vacated so as to make room for a new resident. “Spending Eternity next to Marilyn Monroe is too sweet to pass up”, recently quoted by Hugh Heffner, who has reserved his place in eternity next to her.  The lucky bidder will be deeded a piece of real estate that he or she will make their last address. And below you will be Marilyn Monroe.  In fact the person occupying the address right now is looking face down on her.”
