CELEBRITIES: Elizabeth Taylor doing well

LOS ANGELES (July 31) - Elizabeth Taylor is hospitalized but doing well, a spokesman for the Oscar-winning screen legend said on Thursday, contradicting tabloid newspapers reports that she was in poor health.

"Ms. Taylor is fine. The rumors which began in England about her health are dramatic, overstated and untrue. Her hospital visit was precautionary. She will be returning home shortly," her Los Angeles-based spokesman Dick Guttman said in a statement.

At present, she is surrounded by family, friends and fabulous jewels," the statement concluded.

A report on the Web site for the National Enquirer said Taylor, 76, was put on a life-support machine after suffering congestive heart failure. The report cited "a friend" and was picked up by Britain's Daily Mail, among others.
