The Many Loves of Elizabeth Taylor

Famously married eight times (twice to Richard Burton), she never gave up her search for a soulmate

EDDIE FISHER

May 12, 1959–March 6, 1964
Still reeling from Todd's death, Taylor found solace with her late husband's good friend, singer Eddie Fisher, who was married at the time to actress Debbie Reynolds. "It was distressing to open the papers day after day and see captions under my photographs referring to me as a home wrecker," she later recalled in her autobiography, maintaining that their marriage was already in trouble. But her relationship with Fisher dissolved when she fell in love with her Cleopatra costar, Welsh actor Richard Burton.
