Liza Minnelli insists she has no regrets about marrying promoter David Gest, even though the union was "a circus event".
The singer/actress tells pal Liz Smith - the new contributing editor of America's Parade magazine - she will never marry again, but she'd never take back any of her past marriages.
That includes her brief union with Gest, which ended in a messy divorce and claims she physically abused her ex.
Of her decision to wed Gest, Minnelli says: "Darling, I was recovering from brain encephalitis!"
And she accepts that marriage to Liza Minnelli is not easy: "I just don’t think it’s fair. It’s too hard on any man to be married to a woman like me... a famous woman, with all that goes with it.
"No matter how successful the man is, it’s hard for him to take. And maybe it’s politically incorrect to say, but I get it. I’m not going to refuse that autograph. I’m not going to deny that photographer. I certainly won’t stop touring. It’s too hard on any man.”
