Silver screen legend Elizabeth Taylor is once again the talk of Tinsletown, what with her rumored engagement (which she denies), and the recent revelation by soap superstar Tony Geary (with whom Taylor briefly appeared on General Hospital for Luke and Laura's legendary wedding storyline in the 80's) that the two had been lovers.
