    I wasn't a fan of Liberace (artistically) before seeing this, but if I owned any of his recordings or memorabilia, they'd be headed for a landfill right about now.

      Forcing Scott to undergo facial cosmetic surgery in order to look like a younger version of Liberace? Well, that's pretty much the definition of narcissist.

      •  That is how Scott reported it. (0+ / 0-)

        And I wasn't close enough to Lee at that time to have a read on how much it was accurate. The relationship was weird, and they were closeted. Very few people could know the truth of that, and one of them is dead.

        And I didn't trust Scott at the time, so, hell, I don't know what to think.
