LA LIZ LEAVES PARTY GUESTS HANGING

ULTRA-DIVA:

Elizabeth Taylor topped every "cool-your-heels-while-Miss-Thang-primps" story I've ever heard! After inviting nearly 100 close pals to her Bel-Air mansion for a holiday party, La Liz spent hours in her bedroom, endlessly primping hair/makeup while guests downstairs muttered, "Where the *%$&# is she?" Despite a staffer's constant ETA updates, people started to split -- and when Tardy Taylor finally made her grand and glorious entrance, only a handful of die-hard chums were still around to applaud it!
