Gone, but never forgotten

If you’re a long-time listener of the WIKY Morning Show, you know that I’m a huge Doris Day fan.  I am also a big Elizabeth Taylor fan, so the news of her passing left me a bit sad.

 

She was one of the greats, a true Hollywood legend and one of the last ones from that “golden era” that seems to have been lost to the tabloid and reality-show era we live in. Those types of “celebrities” are so disposable; they won’t be remembered 5 years from now, let alone 50 years later. Come on, does Kate Goesslin or Snooki really compare to a CELEBRITY like Elizabeth Taylor?

 

Liz was not only one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, from everything I’ve read about her, she was just as wonderful a human being. For all of her extracurricular hi-jinks back in the day, she was truly a loyal friend to those who knew her. She raised millions of dollars for AIDS research, publicly supporting the cause way before it was fashionable to do so.  Like all of us, she was complicated and flawed; after all, that’s part of the human condition.

 

I ran across this item yesterday and found it fascinating.  It seems that Elizabeth Taylor was born with a genetic mutation that made her even more beautiful, if that’s possible.  It seems she was born with a double set of eyelashes, which made her eyes even more gorgeous! No wonder men lost their minds when they were around her! I’m wondering if we’ll ever see a pair of violet eyes like that again.  She was truly one-of-a-kind and I know I’ll miss her.  So, I’ll just have to pop in some of my Taylor DVD’s and enjoy the legacy she left behind.
