The Huffington Post previews an upcoming Vanity Fair story about love’s labor lost:

She [Elizabeth Taylor] remembered waking up one night in the villa she shared with then husband Eddie Fisher, after news of her affair with Burton broke. A friend of Fisher’s had given him a gun and Taylor said she woke to find him watching her, pointing the gun at her head. “Don’t worry, Elizabeth,” she claims she heard him say. “I’m not going to kill you. You’re too beautiful.” That’s when she fled, gathering up her children and taking them to the rented villa of her confidant and personal secretary, Dick Hanley. (When asked about Elizabeth’s account of the incident, the 81-year-old Fisher simply laughed and said, “The past is one son of a bitch.”)
