Who Wants to Be on Top of Marilyn Monroe?

8/23/2009 10:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For $4.6 million, you can sleep with Marilyn Monroe ... for all of eternity.

Marilyn Monroe
A woman in Los Angeles removed her dead husband from his crypt -- which is located right above Marilyn Monroe's at the Westwood Village Memorial Park and Cemetery -- and has put the plot for sale on eBay.

The cemetery is also home to the likes of Natalie Wood, Jack Lemmon, Don Knotts, Rodney Dangerfield and Donna Reed.

Bidding ends at noon Monday.

FIRST!!!! I can't believe the bidding is now over 4 million dollars. Just think how many people could be fed with that money.

story that he was so enamored of Marilyn Monroe that he went to great lengths to secure the crypt above hers. After his own death, the story continues, Poncher's close friends waited for everyone else to leave, then turned the body upside down before the crypt was sealed--leaving Poncher face down "on top of" Marilyn for eternity

WELL YA KNOW, NOTHING SAYS "TIMES ARE TOUGH IN A BAD ECONOMY" LIKE YANKING YOUR DEAD LOVED ONE OUT HIS "CRYPT TO THE STARS" & AUCTIONING OFF HIS FINAL RESTING PLACE ON EBAY!! SWEET JESUS. (I guess THIS must be Obama's fault too. Everything else seems to be!)

#3...I doubt very much if the woman who yanked her long dead hubby out of that crypt in order to auction it off will give any money to charity.....what a frickin' sick world!

As a long time seller on Ebay, I would bet good money that this transaction will never be completed. The press jumps on these phoney auctions as legit, & yet if you go back & look at the closed auctions 90% of the time the transaction fell through. Big surprise....

This kind of throws a kink in the whole "Til death do us part" thing doesn't it?

Actually the reason she's selling is because she's wants to pay off her mortgage and leave the house free and clear to her kids. She's 71. Apparently her plot is beside her husbands, so she's going to move him over to that one and wants them to cremate her when the time comes. It was all over the news yesterday.
