Marilyn Monroe isn't getting a new neighbor anytime soon.

The second auction of the marble mausoleum crypt above Monroe didn't fetch any bids, according to organizer Eric Gazin of AuctionCause.com.

A previous $4.6 million bid for the space fell through in August when Elsie Poncher first attempted to sell off her late husband's crypt. The new eBay.com auction required a 1 to 5 percent refundable deposit to be able to bid.

Gazin says several people were preapproved to bid on the crypt at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, but no one did during the 10-day auction. He says the family is now "weighing their options."

Other celebrities laid to rest at the cemetery include Farrah Fawcett, Rodney Dangerfield, Dean Martin, Jack Lemmon and Eva Gabor.
