Burning Man Here I Come!

Starting this week there will be no new posts by me for about week since I will be at Burning Man where there is no cell service.

Yes, they have internet access up there, but it’s in short supply and not really worth it walking all the way there just to check your email.

Crypt Above Marilyn Monroe Sells for $4.6 Million at Online Auction

The price for spending eternity above Marilyn Monroe is more than $4.6 million.

That’s how much the crypt directly above the actress went for in an eBay online auction that ended yesterday. The Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery crypt above Monroe is being vacated because the widow of the man there now needs money to pay off her mortgage.

The listing says the current occupant is “looking face down on” Monroe, who was laid to rest at the cemetery in 1962.

The seller is Elsie Poncher, who was putting her late husband’s crypt up for auction to help pay off the $1.6 million mortgage on her Beverly Hills home. Richard Poncher bought the crypt from Monroe’s former husband Joe DiMaggio. He husband died 23 years ago at 81.

Tim Gunn Adjusts Wardrobe to Fit L.A. Lifestyle

For the sixth season of “Project Runway,” Tim Gunn had to adjust to the show’s move to Los Angeles.

He had to rethink his wardrobe to fit the L.A. lifestyle, and that meant ditching the suit and tie sometimes. He says during one challenge, viewers will see him in a pair of flip-flops.

Lindsay Lohan was a guest judge in the season opener last night, and Gunn says “she was absolutely wonderful.” He says she “knows clothes, knows what she likes, what she doesn’t and she’s able to articulate that.”

“Project Runway” now airs Thursdays on Lifetime.
