Birthday Boy

If the world had turned out differently, Wladziu Valentino Liberace would have turned 89 today. In his honor, an immortal moment as he shares the stage with the Lovely and Talented Miss Phyllis Diller.

It's hard to imagine now, but poor Lee tried to shore up his reputation as a practicing heterosexual by dating women. Women like Sonja Henie, Mae West, and Christine Jorgensen.

It was not a notably successful ruse, but he's still fab after all these years...
