Such an unbelievable, and deserved, achievement!

Elizabeth Taylor Leaves $800k+ To Her Last Husband

Elizabeth And Larry

A few weeks after such a sad loss, we're learning more and more specifically how the wonderful Elizabeth Taylor divided up her fortune in regards to her will.

Among charities and family members, one recipient comes as somewhat of a surprise: her ex husband Larry Fortensky received more than $800,000 according to the actress's final wishes!

Larry, married to Elizabeth in the 90's, has had a rough time with his health due to a head injury he sustained in 1999 from a drunken fall. Not one to turn her nose up at charity, Elizabeth (without being asked) offered him a thousand dollars a month:

"Darling Larry. I've been thinking of you lately and worry about you. I think you could use a little help so I would like to send you a thousand a month for the rest of my life or until I go broke."

That's so sweet of her!

She also cut him a check for $15k when he was about to lose a house (which he eventually did). Everyone has been very clear, though, that he never asked her for handouts, and that even while they were married, he was still working his job.

The two remained close despite the divorce.

Well, Larry, we definitely hope this helps out with those health issues of yours! It sounds like Elizabeth cared for you a lot, even in the end, regardless of you two not being together anymore.

We think we can all agree that Elizabeth had an amazing heart, that's for sure!

Julianne Moore's Hasty Pudding Parade At Harvard Canceled Due To Stoopid Snow!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooJulianne MooreAwardz

julianne-moores-hasty-pudding-award-parade-canceled-due-to-bad-weather

That effing blizzard is such a buzz kill!

But it's still such an honor!

Julianne Moore was honored today as Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatrical's Woman of the Year, and although most recipients are traditionally treated to a parade through the streets of Cambridge, it had to be canceled this year due to the shiteous weather that's currently terrorizing the east coast!

LAME!

Luckily, the actress is a trooper, and instead stood on the steps of the Hasty Pudding Club theater and celebrated with a group of men dressed in drag, and even took time away from her award to sign autographs for fans!

This woman is a true class act! We're OBSESSED with her!

Congratulations again, bb! A well-deserved honor!

According to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce:

One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, she has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved four #1 singles on the Billboard hot 100 chart, and has won five Grammy Awards, and achieved three Top-Five albums in the United States. She has collaborated with other legendary artists including Herbie Hancock, Andrea Bocelli, Tony Bennett, Elton John and The Rolling Stones. Aguilera was also the only artist under 30 to make Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of 100 greatest singers of all time.
