What started as a longshot now appears to be coming into play.

Lindsay Lohan will be playing Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime Bio of the late actresses life.

According to several Hollywood insiders (Lindsay's people...ahem) she is close to signing the contract and not only that, is getting several scripts thrown her way.

She plans on completing probation early, although right now, she is on track to finish at the end of February.

Prince has been rocking the Carolina's for the past week and before his shows, there have been photos of Elizabeth Taylor playing in a loop.

The legendary actress who died last week from congestive heart failure and was a close friend of the late Michael Jackson.  So what is Prince's connection? 

Aside from being a major film buff, there is that story that back in the 80's, Elizabeth Taylor met Prince through Michael Jackson.  The tale has been gossip fodder for years and no one really knows what took place aside that food was served.

Regardless, Prince is a private person and this is his way of paying tribute to her.-Dr.FB

Elizabeth Taylor has passed away at the age of 79.  She has been hospitalized for over a month at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. 

She was hospitilized last year at Cedars as well, a story we broke but was denied by CNN.  She made a trip overseas last year when Richard Burton was being recognized for his achievements.  She considered Burton her soul mate although she married several times. 

Taylor's health became a concern in 2009 as she did not take part in her good friend Michael Jackson's funeral.

The cause of death is congestive heart failure. 

"Good Morning America" broke the story and confirmed her passing.

Elizabeth Taylor Shares Richard Burton’s Love Letters With Vanity Fair

The biggest celebrity couple of all time was/is Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor.  If they were together now instead of the 60's and 70's, they would be talked about more than Brad and Angelina and be followed any and everywhere.

It was so nice, they married twice.  Divorced twice as well.

Elizabeth Taylor has made public love letters that Richard wrote Liz over the years to Vanity Fair.

It includes nicknames he called Taylor including “My Lumps,” “Dearest Scrupelshrumpilstilskin,” and “Twit Twaddle.”My Lumps?  Um, I think Wil.I.Am. owes Liz some song royalties.

“If you leave me I shall have to kill myself. There is no life without you,” Burton wrote. Pretty powerful stuff.  Romance and passion...and little bit of craziness.

 "You must know, of course, how much I love you. You must know, of course, how badly I treat you."

'You are probably the best actress in the world, which, combined with your extraordinary beauty, makes you unique."

Elizabeth Taylor had this to say about the letters and Richard; "Richard was magnificent in every sense of the word,"  "From those first moments in Rome [The Cleopatra set] we were always madly and powerfully in love."

There is one letter that Liz keeps by her nightstand and refused to publish but read to editors.  She says she reads it every night before bed and it is right by her nightstand.

One can only hope true love, passion, and romance like this will make a comeback.  Just hold the craziness.   This might be one print media article actually picking up to read.-Dr.FB

Elizabeth Taylor Attends Tribute To Richard Burton

Elizabeth Taylor was in London late last week for a tribute for her late husband Richard Burton where a bust was revealed in his honor.

Dame Elizabeth was dressed up a beautiful red dress but did not look as healthy as she did a few months ago.  As we reported exclusively 2 weeks ago, Taylor was admitted to a hospital in Beverly Hills but not for health issues.  She was there for psychiatric reasons and went there voluntary. 

It's hard to see the Hollywood legend like this.  She was very sad and somber at the event as she still feels that Richard Burton was the love of her life.  So much so, she actually married him twice.   Her career was in a major swing when she was with Burton as many in Hollywood can agree. 

For the record, Taylor never denied our story via her Twitter account and neither have her reps.-Dr.FB

CNN Denies Our Report Of Elizabeth Taylor In Hospital

You know I am loving this.  So, I sent our exclusive story of Elizabeth Taylor being admitted to the hospital to several news outlets including CNN. 

Within 20 minutes of sending it in, the CNN entertainment correspondent was debunking it and saying he already talked with someone saying it is false.  Wow.  He must have been in the room or something. 

The article states that they have a "source", so never mind I have "sources" confirming the story. 

It also says that Liz usually Twitters to debunk rumors.  So let me point out, she hasn't twittered to debunk the "rumor" because where she is at, she does not have access to a cell phone. 

It also says the Liz is packing to go to Europe.  Let's be real here: Liz hasn't packed her own luggage since the 1950's babe, so that story just doesn't fly.  Never mind that she used the same story when Michael Jackson passed away. 

I find it interesting also that the first comment left on the article confirms our story.

In a few days, we will see that Liz was in the hospital.  Since the media has missed her checking in, the only thing they can do now is catch her leaving.  

Keep in mind, CNN was the LAST to confirm Michael Jackson's death.  Just saying.  Who do you trust?  CNN or the Good Doctor?-Dr.FB
