The battle against Alcoholism

Liza Minnelli, Liz Taylor’s good friend, has also had her share of personal tragedy; she was only 22 when her mother’s lifelong dependency on prescription medication ended in her death at the age of 47 from an overdose on a bathroom floor. Growing up in Judy Garland’s shadow had been difficult enough, but one of Liza’s greatest regrets is that Judy never got to see the film that launched her career.
Despite all the tragedy, Liza still plainly idolizes her mother, who earned the year’s Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in 1972’s cabaret. Judy My mother is my guardian angel, and it was her guardian angel that originally introduced her to her first husband. Liza hooked up with Lucille Ball’s son Desi Arnaz but the relationship has been deteriorating for some time luckily and while I’ve been here and had this marvelous time I’ve also met a man named Peter Sellers and fell in love with him and am very pleased to say I’m married to him. Liza’s trademark has been smiling through the pain since she belted out the tale of poor old Elsie in cabaret in 1972, and just two years later she was once again following in Liz Taylor’s footsteps and joining the ranks of generous celebrities by lending her support to Sharon Stone’s annual and far benefit in France with all of her friends.
