Fun fact time!

When Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married they purchased two crypts at Westwood Village cemetary in LA (what an odd pairing, am I right?) .  They were stacked on top of each other, with Joe ending up on top and Marilyn eventually on the bottom.  When they divorced, Joe decided to sell his spot to a friend.  

Before the new owner passed away in 1981, he asked his wife to bury him face down so that he would spend eternity staring at Marilyn Monroe.  Ha!

His widow recently put the crypt up for sale on eBay and got around $1.5 million for it.  She said she wanted to move him to a simple plot and pay off their house so that their children aren't left with any debt.  Crazy!

Also - Hugh Hefner bought the crypt to the side of Marilyn for $75,000 back in 1992.

I love trivia!
