Taylor's Cruise Dispels Ill-health Reports

Veteran actress DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR has dispelled repeated reports she's close to death by embarking on a shark spotting cruise. The ocean jaunt saw the screen legend pushed onto the boat in a wheelchair, but she appeared cheerful and relaxed for the duration of the two hour trip on the island of North Oahu, near Hawaii, where she's holidaying. Taylor, 74, appeared on CNN chat show LARRY KING LIVE earlier this year (MAY06) to quash reports she's bed-bound and suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. She said, "If they want to hear that I'm dead, well sorry folks, I'm not."

Thank you for writing this article on Dame Elizabeth Taylor. It is so great to see that she is out and about enjoying herself. I saw a photo on The Insider tonight that showed Dame Elizabeth in the shark tank swimming with the sharks. Can you run that photo. She looked like she was having the time of her life and I would love to show my family the photo.Thank you.
