18 Celebrity Relationships That Started As Affairs
Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher
Eddie Fisher was a well-known player in his day. So well-known, in fact, that Frank Sinatra tried to warn Eddie’s wife, Debbie Reynolds, about him. And Debbie would soon realize why he gave that warning, because shortly after the death of Elizabeth Taylor‘s husband, Eddie started having an affair with her. Even though she and Debbie were supposed to be good friends!
By the time the affair began, Debbie and Eddie already had two children (including the legendary Carrie Fisher). When the news got out, the couple got divorced in 1959 and Eddie married Elizabeth shortly after. As you can imagine, this led to a bitter feud between the former friends, but they did eventually reconcile after Elizabeth and Eddie divorced. Debbie said: “Now in retrospect, though it was not my will, I think it probably was the best thing that ever happened to me. [Eddie] did give me two great children and for that I will ever be grateful.”
