Debbie Reynolds buried; Carrie Fisher's ashes stored in giant Prozac pill urn

Debbie Reynolds buried; Carrie Fisher's ashes stored in giant Prozac pill urn”

"I can't be positive, but I think Carrie Fisher had an urn made that looks like a prozac pill which is god damn genius of her", New York City-based pop culture and comedy writer Cher Martinetti said. In an even crueler twist, her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died just a day later at the age of 84.

But it wasn't just their talent that was a focus for viewers, as you were exposed to the tale of how Eddie Fisher (that's Carrie's and Todd's dad) ran off with Elizabeth Taylor, who was supposedly Debbie Reynolds' good friend, as well as Fisher's bi-polar disorder and drug use. "She was just as brilliant and lovely, tough and wonderful, incisive and amusing as you could imagine".

Later she speaks openly about her mental health issues, giving her different moods names and personalities ("Roy" for her manic moments, and "Pam" for her periods of depression).

Prior to the service at the Hollywood Hills' Forest Lawn Memorial Park, despite the family's desire to lay both actresses to rest together, Fisher preferred cremation while Reynolds wanted to be buried.

Shop owner appeals for help to catch squirrel thieves A Toronto shop owner has filmed pint-sized chocolate bar burglars in a bid to put an end to their squirrelly crime spree. "And [the morning of her death] she said those words to me and 15 minutes later she had a stroke and virtually left". The outpouring of support and tribute showed that these two women meant so much more than we were willing to realize while they were still with us. "My mother loves hummingbirds, and had hummingbirds in her yard", he said. "It was in her house", Todd Fisher told BBC News after the funeral. She died on December 28. If you have HBO Go or an HBO NOW subscription, you'll be able to access Bright Lights right when it begins airing. Fisher's home is delightfully kooky: festooned with Wizard of Oz props and Princess Leia sex dolls, it's a deliberate reaction against the grand, austere home she grew up in.
