TMZ Was Wrong About Elizabeth Taylor’s Resting PLace
By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: Elizabeth Taylor, who converted to Judaism in 1959, is getting a Jewish funeral today at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, California. It has absolutely nothing to do with Michael Jackson being entombed nearby. It’s simply the preferred cemetery.
Yesterday TMZ made a big deal out of showing — with an arrow–how Taylor would be buried next to her parents in another cemetery. They were wrong, of course, but never really corrected themselves. Anyway, this plan was not Taylor’s original one. She wanted to be buried next to Richard Burton, who died in 1984 and rests in Switzerland.
There was some talk of moving Burton years ago to his homeland in Wales. But his final wife, Sally Burton, didn’t want that to happen. She also didn’t want Taylor and Burton reunited. In 1996 there was an unveiling of a memorial stone in Wales, but the efforts to move Burton were over. Now Taylor, who was American by choice, gets to stay in the US with her own family. If she and Burton hook up in the cosmos, expect more tsunamis and distressed weather patterns!
