Elizabeth Taylor Denies Engagement Rumors

Elizabeth Taylor & Jason Winters
Even in our wacky world of celebrity romance, some news is too crazy to be true. Elizabeth Taylor resurrected her Twitter (last used to call out haters of Kathy Ireland‘s Pre-Oscar show: “When is someone going to stop the yellow press from lashing out at people who no more deserve it than the Dalai Lama!”) to dismiss rumors that she was marrying manager Jason Winters. “The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,” Dame Liz tweeted, “Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart.”

While Taylor’s list of ex-husbands is legendary (Winters would have been her eighth—ninth, if you count Richard Burton twice), it was hard to believe the wheelchair-bound 78-year-old was really planning to make it official, especially since she’d already dismissed the idea with a legendary “noooooooooooo!” in 2007. Besides, who could hope to follow her last husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky! Once you’ve had Fortensky, you know that’s the end-sky.
