ELIZABETH TAYLOR WAS A GREAT MOVIE STAR, NOT A GREAT PERSON

We’ve had it up to HERE with the tributes to Elizabeth Taylor. Let’s get real about Liz. Sorry, but she simply wasn’t worthy of all that admiration. She had a pretty face but other positive qualities were rare and far between. When she was a teenager Liz started stealing other women’s husbands. (We still admire Debbie Reynolds for forgiving her.) The acquisitive actress married seven men and finagled as many diamonds out of them as she could manage. And bragged about it. She loved her pets but never bothered to house break them – they messed her carpets – and OTHER people had to clean up. She had health problems but casually checked into a hospital whenever she wanted a rest. Of course her health would have been much better if she had controlled her urges to overeat, drink, smoke, and take drugs – and she never exercised a day in her life. Self-control was not Elizabeth’s strong factor. In 1983, she admitted to being hooked on painkillers and sleeping pills for 35 years. While filming, she expected to find a “gift” in her dressing room every morning or she might not be in the mood to work. We mean jewelry, not flowers. She kept people waiting for hours with no apology. Liz expected her friend Michael Jackson to shower her with diamonds and jewelry stores are still suing his estate for money he owed for her gifts. Granted, she WAS a dear friend to Rock Hudson when he needed one, but her involvement with AIDS charities brought her a grand lifestyle and prestige – private jets and five star hotel suites around the world for her and her entourage, incredible gifts, paid for by the charity. Style icon? Only if you like turbans and caftans. When Edith Head stopped dressing her, she lost her glamour. Let’s celebrate her film career- not her private life.

    The last laught … haha! LOL. 🙂
    The U.S. Senate has passed a Boxer/Feinstein-sponsored resolution honoring Elizabeth Taylor. It reads, in part:
    Whereas Elizabeth Taylor used her fame to raise awareness and advocate for people affected by HIV/AIDS;
    Whereas, at a time when HIV/AIDS was largely an unknown disease and those who were affected by HIV/AIDS were ostracized and shunned, Elizabeth Taylor called for and demonstrated compassion by publicly holding the hand of her friend and former costar, Rock Hudson, after he had announced that he had AIDS;
    Whereas Elizabeth Taylor testified before Congress saying, “It is my hope that history will show that the American people and our leaders met the challenge of AIDS rationally and with all the resources at their disposal, for our sake and that of all humanity.”;
    Whereas, in 1985, Elizabeth Taylor became the Founding National Chairman for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (commonly known as “amfAR”);
    Whereas, in 1991, Elizabeth Taylor founded the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation to provide direct support to those suffering from the disease;
    Whereas the extensive efforts of Elizabeth Taylor have helped educate the public and lawmakers about the need for research, treatment, and compassion for those suffering from HIV/AIDS;
    Resolved, That the Senate recognizes and honors the courageous, compassionate leadership and many professional accomplishments of Elizabeth Taylor; and offers its deepest condolences to her family.

    Interesting that Memphis is a city that had a great opportunity but is filled with heavy BLACK crime and white flight to the suburbs. Elvis would have never lived in the location where Graceland is located now and if the city had not been so corrupt, it would have cleaned up that area long ago and benefited even greater from tourism.

    Time man build a better mouse trap, some rat will come along and steal it.
    @Strom:
    There will always be at least 2 opinions on 1 topic. A lot of landmarks have a ghetto close by. I appreciate your assessment of Graceland,but Indy’s in depth travelogue of Graceland proves more valuable. I can easily believe there is another vacation site that you can give a better enlightenment of,I will waiting to hear about it. PEACE!!

    She learned well from the jews about grabbing as much as you can, as fast as you can, whether it is rightfully yours or not. That is why her estate is so large!

    Elizabeth Taylor learned from her mother and PR agents to lie early and often. She lied about virtually everything: being “first” to raise consciousness and money for AIDs (that was Joan Rivers)and it had more to do with being out of the spot light than sorrow for Rock Hudson; “her” perfumes (that idea, including the name Passion came from boyfriend Henry Wynberg); her “friendships” (she extorted money and gifts from Malcolm Forbes and Michael Jackson for AIDs charities and often sold their gifts to “donate” to AmFar); her morality, she told the ridiculous lie about never having slept with anyone she hadn’t married and even had some of her husbands repeating it. She came on to and proposed marriage to every guy she met, including every husband. She “collected” men pure and simple because she was acquisitive about EVERYTHING and addicted to sex.
    She demanded freebies from hotels restaurants, designers, jewelers, bars…you name it. She rarely showed at events to honor anyone else and could always be found rubbing against the richest and/or most powerful person at any gathering. She insisted on lavish wardrobes for her movies even when the role didn’t call for it so that she could keep much of it. She had crew members on her movies take up collections to buy her gifts when she made 1,000 times more than they did. After her stardom, she was usually unprofessional, keeping cast and crew waiting for hours to see if she was fit to show up. She said that she’d never had an acting lesson, but she was trained like everyone else at MGM and thereafter worked with every major actor, director, hairdresser, costume designer, cameraman, publicist, writer, dialect coach, and make-up person who ever worked in films.
    Her “illnesses” were usually either faked or self-induced for sympathy, attention, and to get out of something. She latched onto Michael Jackson’s sad childhood to make it her own when contemporary news accounts have her living a spoiled child’s dream. She worked far less frequently than almost any other child actor. Count her movies and theirs. She finally “discloses” physical and mental abuse from her father and several husbands after they’re conveniently dead. Now she’s come up with an imaginary last letter from Burton wanting to come back to her. No one ever saw it and alas it was “buried with her”. She never forgave him for dismissing her from his life, so she decided to “become” his widow. She wasn’t.
    Let’s face it, this ridiculous, self-involved woman was truly beautiful for about 20 years total. Most of her life she was a loud, vulgar, grasping buffoon. She was a mediocre actress at best; any competent actor could (and did) do better with the same material. She wanted money and power and a life of luxury which she thought she “deserved” because most people thought she was pretty. Along the road she hurt far, far many people than she ever helped.

    Nevertheless I believe it may all be true and any star that is so worshipped probably has the same foibles. However much she took as freebies, it pales in comparison with the modern day fame whores Kardashian and Lopez. The met Liz’s bid and raised it and raised it and neither do they have an inth of the acting ability Liz had. Neither did Liz have near as much black meat hung in her smokehouse as did these Liz wannabes either.

    Since when was not exercising, smoking, loving jewelry, and over-eating akin to moral corruption? You act as if she committed genocide. Sounds like a personal vendetta, Janet Charlton.

    WOW!
    “but her involvement with AIDS charities brought her a grand lifestyle and prestige – private jets and five star hotel suites around the world for her and her entourage, incredible gifts, paid for by the charity.”

    How do you know she didn’t pay her own way or that these ‘perks’ weren’t gifted her? Where did you get this information?

    I sure hope you have proof for your defamatory statement. Who the h*ll are you anyway? Janet who? Never mind…I don’t care and I won’t be back.

    You are such a hypocrite! Read your March 23rd post about her. You are such a bitter person & I think the way you write most of your posts shows what an awful person you are.

    Why is it that Perez is so much more famous than you? Maybe because he is real & true to himself. You are as fake as the Hollywood you write about!

    Hi! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers…

    I think your taking Liz too seriously. She was just a beautiful woman who entertained us with her beauty, her movies, and yes, her shananigans. So what – she took Debbie’s husband. Life isn’t fair even to the rich and beautiful. And, as far as we know, she didn’t steal anything – her money and jewels were GIVEN to her – by rich men and the fans who paid the movie ticket price to see her on screen. Aren’t there other, more dangerous people to talk scornfully about??

    Definitely consider that that you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to keep in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst other people consider issues that they just do not recognize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

    Only a fool would admire someone like Elizabeth Taylor instead of a true saint like Mother Theresa. This world makes me sick.

We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy.
