Anna Nicole Smith Update

Anna Nicole Smith diaries sell for over $500,000 - Yahoo! News: "NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two diaries written by
Anna Nicole Smith have sold on online auction site eBay for more than $500,000 to a German man planning to use them as the basis of a book, according to the memorabilia house that sold them.

Jeff Woolf, co-partner and auction director at Universal Rarities in Corona, California, said the diaries, from 1992 and 1994, were found a few years ago by a man cleaning out a house in Los Angeles where Smith stayed during a filming project.

He sold the diaries to a memorabilia collector who runs a shop on Hollywood Boulevard who came forward with the diaries after the mystery death of the former Playmate in a Florida hotel on February 8 at the age of 39.

In the 1992 diary, which has the words 'I follow my own star' on the cover, Woolf said Smith confesses: 'I hate for men to want sex all the time. I hate sex.' This diary sold for about $285,000.

In the second diary Smith writes about the illness of her billionaire husband Howard Marshall, who died in 1995 at the age of 90, with a religious awakening with lots of references to Jesus. This sold for about $230,000."
