Arrested Development scene stealer Liza Minnelli appeared Wednesday in a New York divorce court, but her estranged hubby, David Gest, was a no-show. Minnelli's lawyer accused Gest of hiding out in Hawaii to avoid a pretrial examination. Gest's attorney said his client was still in too much pain from Minnelli's repeated beatings to attend. Gest is suing Minnelli for $10 million, claiming she smacked him around during their brief marriage. She's countersuing him for $2 million, alleging he stole money from her.
