Following her tragic death, Anna Nicole Smith 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.
Still according to Woolf, the first diary in which Smith wrote "I hate for men to want sex all the time. I hate sex." sold for about $US285,000. Whereas the second one, tells about the illness of Smith's billionaire husband Howard Marshall who died in 1995 at the age of 90, with a religious awakening with lots of references to Jesus, sold for about $US230,000.
"The gentleman who bought them required to be anonymous but I can tell you he is from Germany and has the intention of making a book out of them and doing some things in the publishing world," Woolf said on the diaries purchaser.
