“I have never had a better time than being Liberace’s date. We all knew he was homosexual. That was a friend: You know what they love and the people that they love, and what they are.”

Debbie Reynolds, who plays Liberace’s mom in HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra,” recalling her friendship with the flamboyant pianist — she called him “Lee” — back in their Vegas days. “I don’t want him to be remembered just for being homosexual,” she tells the Associated Press. “He should be remembered as a great entertainer.”
