Liza Ex David Gest Comes Out After Two-Year Absence

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – David Gest is best known as the former hubby of Liza Minnelli, but these days, he’s got his eye on Dionne Warwick.

Gest has spent the last two years away from showbiz but is starting a comeback on Monday (Oct. 17) by holding a party in Los Angeles he’s calling “THE Party,” to announce his new ventures.

Topping the list is an upcoming TV special honoring Warwick’s 45th anniversary in show business but Gest is also going to announce plans for a new play that will premiere in Las Vegas before moving to New York.

Gest admits he’s still plagued by headaches he claims were caused by Minnelli during alcohol-fueled rages but insists he’s “back 100 percent mentally.”

Some of the guests who will be attending include Mickey Rooney, Brian McKnight, Magic Johnson and Kirk Douglas. Gest admits it’s an eclectic guest list, but he doesn’t think it will make for a strained gathering because, in his words, “Talent respects talent.”
