Dame Elizabeth Taylor may be ill in hospital but she’s far from death’s door as reports initially claimed last week. In fact her publicist, Dick Guttman, has released my favourite ever press statement regarding his client. He’s called reports the 76-year-old Oscar winner is seriously ill as “dramatic, overstated and untrue”. He added: “At present, she is surrounded by family, friends and fabulous jewels.”
I’ve never heard such a fabulously camp and over the top press statement from a publicist. Long may the Dame live strong and well!
