Once Rivals Reynolds And Taylor Form "Special Relationship"

During a scene in the upcoming ABC telefilm These Old Broads, a character played by Elizabeth Taylor tells another character played by Debbie Reynolds how much she regrets stealing her husband 40 years ago, The New York Times reveals today (Friday).

The scene, written by Reynolds' daughter, Carrie Fisher, alludes to the notorious scandal in 1960 when Reynolds' husband, singer Eddie Fisher, left her for Taylor. "My main scene with Debbie is hysterical," Taylor told the Times. "This movie has actually made us very close. It's a very special relationship. We both sort of had the same ghastly experience so many years ago."
