She was a figure who was larger than life!!
For more than six decades, Dame Elizabeth Taylor entertained audiences worldwide, her beauty captured in films like Cleopatra and her acting skills giving stellar performances in films like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Butterfield 8. But it was her role in National Velvet with Mickey Rooney that made her a star.
She began acting at 12, was a star by 18, a widow at 26.
We knew her as well for her private life as we did her storybook career. She was married eight times, with her husbands including a hotel magnate (Conrad Hilton), actors (Michael Wilding, Eddie Fisher), a producer (Michael Todd), a Senator (John Warner), and a construction worker (Larry Fortensky). But to most of us, it was her two marriages to actor Richard Burton that are remembered most.
In her later years, Liz Taylor was an ardent AIDS activist, as well as a successful entrepreneur, being the first star to tie her name to a perfume line, and then developing a successful jewelry line.
Suffering from congestive heart failure, Elizabeth Taylor passed away this morning at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in California with her four children at her side.
Harry Connick Jr. was not impressed with a variety show act in Australia that highlighted the Jackson Five. Connick let the performers and the host know exactly what he thought of the act………
I received this in my email today, and I am unsure of who authored it, but the sentiments are extremely valid:
Okay, I need to rant.
I was just watching the news, and I caught part of a report on Michael Jackson. As we all know,
Why is it that when ONE man dies, the whole of America loses their minds with grief. When a man
Am I missing something here? ONE man dies, and all of a sudden he’s a freaking martyr because he
I think that if they are going to hold a moment of silence IN CONGRESS for Michael Jackson, they
Sorry if I have offended, but I needed to say it. Remember these five words the next time you think of
“So that others may live…”
P.S.-”So that others may live…” was also the creed of the Air Rescue &
Recovery Service during Vietnam & is still today.
Perhaps now that Michael Jackson’s public memorial is over, the media will return to reporting important things, like the healthcare reform, the Sotomayer confirmation, and of course, Congress’ foray into the NCAA. And perhaps, being shmaed into it a bit, the media may honor some of pur heroes, like Lt. Brian Bradshaw of WA., who have died in the service of our country.
But for a time today, as though royalty had died, the world watched family and friends pay tribute to the talent that was Michael Jackson. When you get past the phoniness of Rev. Al Sharpton, and the “cashing in” of Usher, there were two poignant moments in the memorial. The first was the words of Brooke Shields, who often accompanied Jackson as his “standby date”. Shields words were those of a true friend recalling childhood memories.
Then, as the stage filled with family and friends at the end, Jackson’s 11 year old daughter, Paris, spoke, in tears, exressing what a good “Daddy” she had, that she “loved so much”.
‘s three young children, after a lifetime of fierce protection from the prying eyes of the world, came out into the open Tuesday for the most public and heart-wrenching debut imaginable.
It appears that TMZ.com has been able to obtain BIRTH CERTIFICATES!!
Ok, calm down! It’s not the ONE’s Birth certificate.
Nope………….. Far more important than that!!!!
Yep. Harvey Levin has secured the birth certificates of Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson!
Is it possible that we could get Harvey Levin and TMZ.com to descend on Hawaii…………… after Michael Jackson’s funeral, of course!
