We’re talking Forever Marilyn,” the uber popular 26-foot tall sculpture of the legendary bombshell that  Monroe which graced downtown Palm Springs for nearly two years -- attracting thousands of residents and visitors alike –myself included. And well, they might be bringing it back and  this time really forever!
A source told me that that on  Aug. 3, the City Council will hear a proposal from P.S. Resorts during the regularly scheduled 6 p.m. council meeting to privately raise funds needed to have artist Seward Johnson’s sculpture , which is now owned by the New Jersey-based Seward Johnson Atelier, Inc.,returned. P.S. Resorts is currently negotiating a title sponsorship agreement with the RumChata Foundation to cover half the cost of bringing the sculpture back to Palm Springs and working on a plan to acquire the additional funds needed for the purchase through private donations.

Marilyn Monroe has a long and checkered past with Palm Springs having done some trysting in her day at a hotel called the Monkey Tree (which remodeled and reopened recently with a Presidential Suite
that was once used by MM and JFK for well secret rendezvous). I stayed at the Monkey Tree and love the quirky property with its whimsical décor, inviting pool, sauna, hot tub and cold plunge. Rates are reasonable and include daily breakfast, WiFi, parking and a friendly staff.
