It's called a career move.

Was she a practicing Jew?

It doesn't matter what religion she was. She was a pretty woman and a star.

Well, she was buried within 24 hours. She was at best a moderate practicer of Judiasm.

The burial details surprised me. She didn't wear her faith on her sleeve.

She was a good person.

RIP Ms. Elizabeth Taylor.....
