Marilyn Monroe's Little Black Book Sold On eBay
View the eBay Auction.
June 7, 2005, LOS ANGELES, CA -- The life of one of Hollywood's true movie stars and cultural icons is now an open book. Marilyn Monroe's authentic address book was sold in an auction of several extremely personal items. The address book containing private numbers of husbands, lovers, and Hollywood friends was sold to Internet casino GoldenPalace.com, the gambling site famous for its outrageous eBay purchases.
Monroe's personal items were sold by Monroe's estate, controlled by descendants of her former acting coach, Lee Strasberg. These same items were omitted from an earlier sale at Christie's because they were considered too personal.
The address book bought by the casino is a tan leather ring-bound book, dating from shortly before the actress's suicide in 1962. It lists her ex-husbands Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller as well as stars such as Jack Lemmon, Peter Lawford, Montgomery Clift, John Huston, Henry Fonda, Jack Benny and Yves Montand. Five numbers are given for Frank Sinatra.
"Marilyn Monroe is an icon and a part of American movie history," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "This book is a powerful link to the golden days of Hollywood and we are very proud to have it in our collection of eccentric items."
Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Recently, items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, and Pope Benedict XVI's previously-owned VW Golf have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.

I'm 85 years old. You've got to promise me not to reveal the names in MM's little black book. If my wife were to find out about my affair with MM back in '59, she'd cut off my supply of Viagra (and possibly cut off some other things too) and never speak to me again. I like the "never speak to me again" part, but I needs my Viagra!!

Busted, you are a damned liar! I had the rare opportunity to boink Norma Jean too. I met her in 1960, and she said I was her first (outside of marriage, I mean). So you are a liar! I'm 88, but I'm pretty sure I could still kick your ass (with my good foot) if nursie turned off my oxygen tank for a couple of minutes so I can get up out of my wheelchair. I'll meet you any time, any place (but not after 7 pm, and not outside a 3 km radius from an Ambulance station). Ah the hell with it; I got tired just typing all this...let's just say I know and you know that you're a liar!
GP, I don't care if you publish the names in MM's book; I'm a widower. Besides, I could use the advertising. I've got all the Viagra I need, but nowhere to go! It's no fun having to sleep on your back for a week because you took a double dose of Viagra by mistake - so publish those names so I can get some action!!
