[ # ] RIP Debbie Reynolds
December 28th, 2016 under Obits









Less than 36 hours after Carrie Fisher died, her mother Debbie Reynolds joined her in heaven. Her son Todd Fisher told Entertainment Tonight, the 84 year old “missed her daughter (Carrie) and wanted to very much be with her and she had discussed some other things. She had been very strong the last several days; (there was) enormous stress on her, obviously.” Then he added, “And this morning, she said those words to me and 15 minutes later she had a stroke and virtually left.” An inseparable love this mother and daughter shared which was chronicled in the movie Postcards from the Edge which was based on Fisher’s book about her life growing up.
Before Reynolds was a mother, she was a triple threat singing, dancing and acting in such classic Hollywood hits like Singin’ in the Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown and The Singing Nun, to name a few. In the ’50s, she became a mom to Todd and Carrie with her first husband Eddie Fisher, who left his family for Elizabeth Taylor. She didn’t let that get her down and she kept on sharing her talents with the world. In recent years, she went on to guest star on several shows like The Golden Girls, Rugrats and Will & Grace.
Not only was she a Hollywood Icon, she also saved several of Hollywood’s iconic items. She amassed a collection of what studios thought was Hollywood trash and restored the costumes and props to their original glory. Sadly, over the last decade she had to sell off her collection, but they went to people who will love them as much as she did.
Today, we should honor someone who made Hollywood what it is today, by keeping her beauty alive just like she did with all the props from the Golden Era of Hollywood.
