Nell Carter and Liza Minnelli were always good friends throughout their years with Warhol and at The Factory. Both suffered drug and alcohol problems, but helped each other out in times of need. At one point, when Nell was going through a rough patch, she attended a Liza Minnelli show. Minnelli saw the distress on Carter's face and immediately, during the show, told her sister to go to Carter's aid.; -Pat Hackett, editor of The Warhol Diaries
