We're just as intrigued as you are that the legendary singer-actress did something as mundane as having a yard sale. But wait until you hear what was on offer...
Were you in the market for Michael Jackson's epaulets? Then you should have been at Liza Minnelli's yard sale this past weekend in East Hampton, New York. Though it was probably a more flashy affair (after all, it was the Hamptons), we like to imagine that the scene resembled a typical yard sale like the photo above.
So, what was on offer aside from the King of Pop's epaulets? Couture clothing (sequined, we assume), furniture from her Lake Tahoe home and a book on hip replacement signed by her surgeon. Liza remarked on the latter, "You've got to keep on trucking, folks, keep on trucking!"
Our favorite part of this whole event wasn't that Joy Behar showed up (picking up some jewelry), but the fact that Liza placed a classified ad in the local paper, The East Hampton Star. Though it was a blind ad, this line
gave it away: "Don't bother coming early, entertainers sleep in"
And so do we, Liza.
