Sorry, I know this was posted on another thread, but this deserves its own headline.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Manhattan, New York, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) June 1, 2012 --
Liza with too many 'Z's. Legendary singer and actress Liza Minnelli has just announced that she is now engaged to long-time friend and actor Tony Danza, best known for the sitcom "Who's The Boss?". In almost every interview since Minnelli's divorce to concert promoter David Gest, Minnelli made it clear that she will never again tie the knot. But now it looks as if Minnelli is 'no longer the boss'. Danza, a recent divorcee, has been partying it up with Minnelli, and inside sources say that an affair has been brewing since before Danza was divorced, and even before Minnelli tied the knot with Gest. Minnelli came out about the engagement in an article with "GLAMOUR" magazine due out this July. In the interview Liza says "I have finally made the decision that there ARE some men who can change the mind of a heartbroken, pessimistic, hopeless romantic". Some folks joke that soon Liza with a Z will be Liza with TWO Z's...."Liza Danza". Tony Danza has been unreachable for comment but friends of the actor say that Liza has given him a reason to believe in love again. What a pair....They both tapdance, they both sing, they both even go to the same apartment building at the end of the day. Minnelli and Danza have shared a NYC apartment complex for the last 12 years. We just hope and pray that this marriage of Minnelli's does not result in physical pain for Danza as it did David Gest. Apparently Tony Danza at one time was a boxer, which may come in handy when it comes to keeping Liza with a Z from biting off his ear. We will be watching and waiting for more incredible showbiz mayhem!
Well, this just proves what many already knew. Danza is gay. And Liza continues in the grand Garland tradition of marrying another gay man. You know what, though? GOOD FOR BOTH OF THEM. They both are rather "faded roses." Liza had her share of hunks in her time (Mark Gero was pretty hot!) and Danza was sure a hunk. Somehow I can see that they could be good for each other, really. Of course, unless this is all total bullshit.
My head just blew off. I have no words.
WTF?! Are you kidding? If this is a troll post, I got seriously taken in.
Another exploding head
OMG. I've just sit my bed matress. What tha fock!!??
Well, that's what I'm thinking too R1.
But the other PR celebrity related items all seem legitimate. When I saw someone posted it in another Liza thread, I had to make it stand alone.
This is just too weird for words.
This cannot be true. Need another source.
This is not true. Friends, perhaps. But not lovers.
If you Google the name of the publicist or the publicist's company's name, you get no results at all, except for this single press release.
It's a fake. A fun fake, but a fake.
This has to be a joke.
I thought he was gay? He once hit on a (male) friend of mine.
This is a joke, right? If it's not, then my suspicions of Tony being gay have just been proven.
5 Riverside Drive in New York? Five? That's where you live? Are you sure? That's where I live!
As if that wasn't enough for Liza thought she'd gone deaf, when Tony told her his apartment there was 29F!!!!!
Yes, she was E; he was F and they had not even met.
You girls who live in apartments, don't just stare at the wall,
Open up the door and hurry out in the hall.
Liza lives in the big white brick apartment complex on east 69th street between Lexington and 3rd. Believe it or not, she is listed in the white pages. I used to work around the orner and she would come into my store allnthe time. All her deliveries went there. I had no idea Tony Danza lived there as well. I would have stuck around to try andvsee him if I'd known.
Wow....so is Liza stocking up on butt plugs and black dildos for TD? This woman needs to be "put away" somewhere...and, I was referring to LM not TD.
Does the guy not know that marrying Liza is the same as coming out???
I saw David Gest in a recent bio of Michael Jackson, one in which most of his family participated (except, of course, Jermaine)- as Gest is a friend from way back. He didn't seem as creepy and oily as he did back in the Liza days. But now trying to be a little too hip-hoppy for a man of his age. And he talks way slower than the average person.
Hooray for heterosexuality! Cutest old celeb has-been couple EVUH!
When Danza had his morning talk show from NY, his family stayed behind in LA. On Tuesday mornings (he was live) he would do a re-hash of "24" and always mentioned that Liza lived in his building and she would come down in her pajamas and they would watch it together.
Has Liza ever even been interested in a man who wasn't gay? I think like her mom they both look for a man like their dads. Amazing how both mother and daughter had gay father's they adored and have always only looked for gay men to marry. I guess a lot of women want a guy like their father, no matter what, kinda sad.
I wonder if Danny Pintauro is sitting back somewhere and saying, "I just KNEW it!"
Please, dimbulbs. Do you think that even reads like a real press release? Liza "with too many Z's". Honestly.
Obviously it's a joke press release.
[quote] Yikes she really is in the White Pages.
The listing in that link is for a "Liza Minelli". If that really is our Liza, they misspelled her last name. It's M-I-double N, then-E-double L-I. You double up the N, thats nn, not ll. Then E, double the L, end it with an I.
THAT'S the way you say "Minnelli".
You are soooooo Gay reply37
Is this an April Fool's joke from someone who doesn't know how to read a calendar?
Someone invade her privacy!
Well, the white pages link is Liza's correct address. She lives in the Imperial House on 69th bet. 3rd and Lex and has been there since the 70s. Joan Crawford lived (and died) in the same building, so between her and Liza is should be on the register of gay historic places.
Michael Musto is on the case. At least this time, he attributes the source.
[italic]A mock press release was posted claiming that Liza Minnelli is engaged to longtime friend Tony Danza, who lives in the same apartment complex.
They're gonna ring them bells!
Fortunately for all involved, it reads like a parody, so I think we can all relax and not plan on dodging lampshades any time soon.
Over at datalounge.com, here's what the kids have been satirically saying about this madness:
"I thought he was gay!"
"As if that would make it less probable rather than more."
"Does the guy not know that marrying Liza is the same as coming out?"
"I wonder if Danny Pintauro is sitting back somewhere and saying, 'I just KNEW it'."
But enough with the revelry. I've shot out a request for Liza's publicist to comment and I'll ring them bells for you when he responds.[/italic]
Tony isn't gay. He and Liza just like hanging out in each other's apartments, clearing away the living room furniture and then singin' and dancin' all night long. They have a swell time together.
It's truly terrific.
you mean, gay, gay?
[quote]Danza, a recent divorcee
Girls, if that didn't give it away.
So is this true or not??
I like blue.
The Voice blog has now been updated to quote Liza's publicist!!
Thanks for making a separate thread for this, OP. I actually can't believe we two started this spreading mess so quickly lol. This is so delicious it must be fattening.
Yay! I was quoted in The Village Voice!!
Liza's publicist responds:
"The reports of my client, Liza Minnelli, getting engaged to Tony Danza yesterday are completely false. Liza has been out cold on phenobarbital and scotch since Thursday afternoon, so obviously she could not have become engaged to Mr. Danza yesterday."
Wouldn't Liza be more interested in Judith Light than Tony Danza?
r59 me too, lol.
Tony Minnelli, Private Danza
Has Tony ever fucked Merilu Henner's tits?
[quote]Has Tony ever fucked Merilu Henner's tits?
Not sure, but I think he supposedly fucked her anally.
At the moment, Liza and Tony are in their pajamas watching a marathon of all the episodes of "24" that they Tivoed.
Next up: The Sterile Cuckoo, Cabaret and Taxi.
Fire up the popcorn and Red Bull
Liza Danza is an amazing name. I think she should absolutely marry him just for that.
Liza's maid of honor, Elizabeth Taylor, and David Guest's best man, Micahel Jackson, from her previous wedding are now dead.
Who will be the lucky members of the wedding party this time?
We weren't there: Lorna Luft and Danny DeVito
[quote]Has Tony ever fucked Merilu Henner's tits?
I'm hoping for one amazing wedding kiss. So Tony, you better not disappoint us.
No one has asked the obvious based on the thread's opening claim:
Engaged in what?
If you like then you shoulda put a sling on it.
Hey, they are both seniors who probably don't want to be alone.
another lol for r77.
OK, I know this is evil. But...
Picture the scene in Ghost where Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore are sexily making a pot.
Now, replace them in your mind with Liza and Tony sensually modeling clay to make their wedding rings.
r83 - they could write their vows in cuneiform.
Liza and Tony were on their way to the theatre, but they showed up late because Liza had to turn off the lamp.
Come on Liza, just turn off the lamp.
I LOVE MY DEAD GAY HUSHBANDSH!
Liza, after four Bombay Sapphires and six lines of coke
Liza on HSN is hilarious . Has she been back? Does she still have her line?
The plot thickens!!
This photo is from last night at some theatre awards thing -- Liza and Tony together!
Even if this is fake it's still the gayest news item of the new century.
This is crap. Tony was just on the cancel'd Rosie show and you can see in his face and how hesitant he talks that the pain he is in over he and Tracy is hurting. He even said they'd be married 26 years, thats on June 26th. He's not divorced from Tracy and I have my doubts that he really wanted to. His career has picked up in NYC but it was going no where in LA. His kids are on twitter and they do not have anything on there that sites this crap. That family is very very close. Besides this Liza is many many years older than T. I find this just crap.
What's the story with Tony and guys? I've never heard any bi stuff about him.
At least now she'll be married to someone who can punch back.
I actually saw Tony Danza at a restaurant in NYC back in April. He was with a young late teens/early 20s girl and a woman who could have been his wife. They all seemed very happy, but he was talking negatively about Obama kind of loudly. It was a little strange.
He is a BIG TIME repug, R100.
Tony looks pretty damn good for 61. I don't blame Liza for trying to get her hands on his Italian sausage.
Guys, this shit is spreading. They should have also used that pic of Liza with that ring on, lol.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
