Liza Minelli and Scott Fujita, The Duo We've All Been Waiting For

Posted By on Tue, Apr 27, 2010 at 6:07 AM

There's really nothing of newsworthy note here, and yet I'm posting about it. Why? Because anytime a press release comes and the featured pairing at an event is Liza Minelli and Scott Fujita, then it amuses me and I have to share it.

Fujita, perennial good guy, is being honored by PFLAG. He will do so while trying to avoid being eaten or married by Minelli. The press release, for anyone interested, is excerpted below. Liza Minelli jokes can go in the comment section.

2nd Annual Event to Occur on Saturday, May 1st at the Marriott Marquis

Washington, D.C. — This Saturday, May 1st, Parents, Friends and Families of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) will host its second annual Straight for Equality Awards Gala at the New York Marriott Marquis. Honorees this year include star of film, stage and screen Liza Minnelli, NFL Super Bowl XLIV star, now of the Cleveland Browns Scott Fujita, and international food services corporation Sodexo. The event will be hosted by comedienne Caroline Rhea, with the live auction hosted by actor and "Amazing Race IV"-winner Reichen Lehmkuhl.
