According to Gawker, 78 year-old Elizabeth Taylor is set to marry 49 year-old Jason Winters. Yes, that’s a thirty year difference. Yes, this will be the ninth time she has made a trip down the aisle. Yes I still remember the White Diamonds commercials from my childhood.
And here I had assumed long ago (right around the time those commercials were airing) that Taylor’s days as a blushing bride were over. Silly me.
Is this really happening? Really?!
I guess I am not really surprised, not if I do a little soul-searching.
Previously Taylor has been married eight times to seven men (she and Richard Burton married twice), divorced seven times and widowed once. The past contestants have been: Conrad “Nicky” Hilton, Michael Wilding, Michael Todd (instance of widowing), Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton, Richard Burton, John Warner and Larry Fortensky.
Best of luck.
