Liza's Personality Explained
As I wrote, Liza Minnelli just performed at Cherry Grove's Ice Palace, and the whole town was buzzing with excitement, including other island guests like Wanda Sykes and Neil Sedaka.
And I got some glimmers of insight into Liza.
Someone who had dinner with her on the island told me:
"She's always 'on,' with a bit of a song or a story.
"What a gift.
"And she know how to grab you.
"When you're walking in a group and she's telling a story, she'll look back to make sure everyone's listening.
"If they aren't, she'll rev it up. 'He really was mean to me.'
"She's a master entertainer. None of the new performers have that skill anymore."
Liza had dinner with friends again the next night--at Sand Castle--and I got some info about that too.
Said a source:
"She started with a salad and asked to have bacon in it instead of strawberries!"
