Liza Has a Laugh (Cough!) at Sardi’s

113165425 Liza Has a Laugh (Cough!) at SardisSome way to preserve your voice before the summer concert tour! Liza Minnelli was spotted lighting up with a male friend last night at the premiere party for The House of Blue Leaves at Sardi’s. “Ms. Minnelli? I don’t want to interrupt your smoke,” asked a timid publicist, attempting to usher the Oscar-winner inside and away from sidewalk gawkers. “Darling! Don’t worry about it!” came the inimitable Minnelli guffaw, and in she went, dropping her cigarette after but two puffs. There’s more where that came from!
