Following her tragic death, has become a household name. She becomes even more famous than when she's still alive. And while the world is waiting for the result of her autopsy to be made public, the two diaries claimed to be written by the former Playboy Playmate have been sold online at the auction site eBay for more than $US500,000.
The diaries, from 1992 and 1994, are said to be found a few years ago by a man cleaning out a house in Los Angeles where Smith stayed during a filming project. Jeff Woolf, co-partner and auction director at Universal Rarities in Corona, California, said the man then sold the diaries to a memorabilia collector in Hollywood who ended up coming forward with the diaries after the mysterious death of Smith on February 8th in a Florida hotel at the age of 39.
