It’s been an emotional week.

When I learned of Carrie Fisher’s passing → my heart ached for her and their families loss. Then two days later, learning of Debbie Reynolds death was just too shocking. All I could think was → Two of the brightest stars in the sky tonight. RIP.

There was this beautiful and pure bond their family illuminated. I hope that the light never fades its shine. That it lives on through their family ♥

I live right in front of my daughter. I have a little house right in front of her because I can stay in touch. It’s like a little commune, and it’s very nice, because you can be close. I can see my granddaughter. I live very close to my brother, too, and my son. We’re a very close family.

The story went that Carrie Fisher, at the age of 60, had a heart attack. Upon landing in Los Angeles on December 23rd she was rushed to the hospital. Through it all, her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was by her side.

And then …

Hello Giggles wrote: Debbie (herself, is a movie legend having starred in 1952’s Singing in the Rain) and Carrie were incredibly close, and talk about a family dynasty, with Debbie, Carrie, and Carrie’s daughter, Billie (of Scream Queens fame). The three of them could often be spotted on the red carpet together, dating back YEARS, and so much awwwww.


Singin’ in the Rain (1952) and childbirth were the two hardest things I ever had to do in my life.

I never dreamt of being in the movies. I was from a very average, I would say, a rather poor family, so my big treat was to work hard all week – I mowed lawns and babysat and washed dishes and washed cars – to go to the movies.

Anything worthwhile is hard, and dancing is very hard, and if you’ve ever studied dancing of any kind you’d know that to be in precision, three people dancing together. — Debbie Reynolds

I don’t want my life to imitate art, I want my life to be art. — Carrie Fisher
