... that decades before the Angelina/Brad/Jennifer triangle captivated the tabloids there was the Elizabeth/Eddie/Debbie saga. In 1959, devastated by the tragic death of her husband Mike Todd, Elizabeth Taylor turned to Todd's best friend singer Eddie Fisher for comfort. At the time, Eddie Fisher was married to America's Sweetheart, Debbie Reynolds. An affair occurred and Fisher divorced Reynolds to marry Elizabeth Taylor. Their marriage would last five years, ironically torn asunder by another of Elizabeth Taylor's high profile affairs (see below.)
… that Elizabeth Taylor was married to British actor Richard Burton not one but two times. They met on the set of Cleopatra and fell passionately in love. After leaving their respective spouses and causing an international scandal, they would marry for the first time in 1964
