It’s Halloween, so what’s scaring celebrities these days?

•“If the snakes come in the room, Vivica is jetting onto the other side of the room, for sure,” says Vivica A. Fox.

“Oh, when I was a little girl I almost got bit by one. … So they’re taboo. I don’t bother them. They don’t bother me.”

•“I don’t know if this is something to be scared of but one thing I find shocking is really fast, random violence,” says musician-director Rob Zombie.

“When I moved to New York in the ’80s, New York was such a violent town. … I remember standing in line on 42nd Street at McDonald’s and all of a sudden, this other guy stabs this other guy right in front of me. Like boom! It’s like this whole bloody mess. And you’re like, ‘Where did that come from?’ ”

•“When the media asks me crazy questions and I don’t know how to answer them, that’s what I fear,” says rapper Snoop Dogg. “But that ain’t never happened, so I guess I have no fears.”

How to bury a millionaire

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

The second auction of the marble mausoleum crypt above Monroe at a Los Angeles cemetery didn’t fetch any bids. A previous $4.6 million bid for the space fell through in August.

May she rest in peace

A 53-year-old man pleaded guilty Friday to resisting police at the set of a Miley Cyrus movie.

Mark McLeod, who claimed he was engaged to the 16-year-old “Hannah Montana” star, was sentenced to two years probation and a mental health evaluation.

Prosecutors said they dropped attempted stalking charges because they lacked evidence that his “attempt to reach or follow Miley Cyrus was different than the hundreds of other fans.”
