Two months after being critically injured in a fall at his home, Liz Taylor’s ex-husband Larry Fortensky has been released from the hospital. Officials at Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center in Mission Viejo, Calif., said the former construction worker, 46, was released into the care of his family. Fortensky was on a respirator at one point during his hospitalization and the reports were dire. A woman who called 911 told authorities Fortensky appeared to be drunk when he fell. Taylor met Fortensky while they were both at the Betty Ford Clinic. They were married in 1991 and divorced in 1996.
