Personal thoughts on Elizabeth Taylor’s passing

HollywoodNews.com: I flipped on the television this morning to MSNBC and heard anchor Thomas Roberts share the news that Elizabeth Taylor had died.

My mom had always been a big fan of the actress so whenever her movies were on television, I’d watch them with her. I didn’t really understand ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,’ ‘Suddenly Last Summer’ or ‘Butterfield 8′ when »

Elizabeth Taylor Hospitalized

14 February 2011 7:41 AM, PST | Celebsology | See recent Celebsology news »

Oh sh*t! The violet-eyed MGM vixen who became the late Michael Jackson's bestie, Liz Taylor, has been hospitalized for congenital heart failure and rushed to a Los Angeles hospital. She's been there since last week and seems to be recovering.

The 78-year-old star and two-time Oscar winner is best known for her scene-chewing turns in National Velvet, Cleopatra, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Butterfield 8 and Sweet Bird of Youth (not to mention a killer impression by John Belushi on the first season of SNL in the '70s).
