Oh no! Not our Liz!
Dame Elizabeth Taylor's reps have confirmed that the screen legend has been rushed to the hospital and is fighting for her life!
Taylor is being treated for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure and is currently at Cedars Sinai Medical Center where she has been put on a respirator and remains in critical condition.
Her press agent Sally Morrison released a statement:
"Elizabeth Taylor was hospitalized earlier this week when she was taken to Cedars Sinai suffering from symptoms caused by congestive heart failure, an ongoing condition. This issue is being addressed. She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring. Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health."
Meanwhile, a family friend says:
"She was fighting for every breath. They had to put her on a respirator. The children from out of town are on their way. Two are already at her bedside keeping vigil. Right now it doesn't look good. She's in God's hands. Everyone close to her is praying."
This is terrible news!! We'll be praying for Liz and hoping she will recover as soon as possible.
