An affair to remember, Part 1
After Todd's death, Taylor sought comfort in the arms of his best friend, Eddie Fisher. The only problem? The pop singer was married to Taylor's good friend Debbie Reynolds — aka "America's Sweetheart" — and the couple's affair caused a showbiz scandal. NBC canceled Fisher's variety series, and the public sided with Reynolds. Fisher and Taylor wed days after his divorce from Reynolds was finalized in 1959 and split five years later. Reynolds eventually forgave Taylor, and the two remained friends until Taylor's death in 2011.
