Taylor reportedly cancelled her annual Easter party to plan her funeral.

Sounds like a person with too much time left. Maybe a farewell fragrance tour will be part of the pre-funeral.

She sure was hot in “Cat on a hot tin roof.”

It seems she's been at "death's door" for about three decades now...her various maladies seem to pop up a couple of times a year.

Like Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, John Wayne, and Paul Newman, to name a few, Liz Taylor is one-of-a-kind, an icon. I don't think we have many stars of her caliber today. Her passing will be very sad. Certainly no actress has ever been a bigger movie star.

Ms Taylor won her first Oscar in 1961 for the film Butterfield 8 ...

Her Oscar for 'Butterfield 8' was considered more of a sympathy vote ... Taylor had just recovered from her first life threatening malady and was still convalescing at the time of the Academy Award.

Congestive heart failure at her age is literally a death sentence. She'll be gone by the end of the year, for sure.

But with all that plastic surgery her body will never decompose. Maybe they can stuff her and put her in Madame Tussaud's

She's broken her back about as often as she's been married.

Wondering if there's a correlation?

"Liz is inching closer to death every day and she knows it," a friend said.

So are you and I. But I do wish her well...she's an amazing actress.

Taylor has been confined to a wheelchair since 2004, having broken her back five times.

Sounds like osteoporosis to me.

She was one of the most beautiful and best actresses ever. But what a messed up personal life. They say the one man she was crazy about was Montgomery Clift (who liked men). In later years she went overboard with booze and pills. She seemed, like a lot of big stars from that era, to be really lonely. Normal folks have a support system of family & friends. Famous people always have to wonder if friends are friends, or just hangers-on.

She was/is one of the most beautiful women that ever lived. Well, I for one still think she's pretty.

Her acting? Dang, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, ....Virginia Woolf....even her guest appearances on "The Lucy Show" showed someone with great acting range. Cleopatra was just plain fun to watch.

She's always seemed to be a kind person with a soft spot for misfits. She's also loved deeply in her life...her kids, grandkids, and yes, husbands. She and Burton were one of the great romances of the century.

I wish her peace and comfort in her final days.

I wonder if she and Ex hubbie, John Warner, are on friendly terms?

My two favorite movies of hers are Giant and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

Aren't we all?
