Liza Minnelli, 69, Back in Rehab, Said to Be Making Progress

Liza Minnelli, the legendary 69-year-old entertainer with a long history of alcohol and drug addictions, is back in rehab but is making "excellent progress," according to a spokesman.

In September, Minnelli underwent back surgery to help heal an injury that prevented her from performing most of the year or attending the funeral of Joan Rivers in New York City.

"Minnelli has valiantly battled substance abuse over the years and whenever she has needed to seek treatment she has done so," said spokesman Scott Gorenstein on Wednesday night, reported The Associated Press.  "She is currently making excellent progress at an undisclosed facility."

Minnelli is one of the few artists to win an Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy and a Grammy. Perhaps her greatest role was as cabaret singer Sally Bowles in the film version of "Cabaret."
