We have to put in a nice word on the passing of Rip Taylor. Rip and Debbie Reynolds were best friends and when she purchased a run-down hotel in Las Vegas in the 90’s she invited press people (including this Star gossip columnist) for a free weekend to see Debbie’s collection of movie costumes on display, and stir up some publicity. Rip knocked himself out showing everyone around and making sure they had a good time – because he wanted Debbie’s venture to succeed. Sadly the hotel failed, but we never forgot Rip Taylor’s extreme efforts for his friend Debbie.
