DEBBIE REYNOLDS FOLLOWS DAUGHTER CARRIE FISHER IN DEATH

Debbie Reynolds, the “triple threat” who was considered Hollywood royalty, died Wednesday at the age of 84, just one day after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher. Her son, Todd Fisher, told the Associated Press that Reynolds said the stress of his sister’s death on Tuesday “was too much” for Reynolds. Carrie Fisher had been hospitalized since Friday. “She said, ‘I want to be with Carrie,’” her son said. “And then she was gone.” Reynolds’ breakthrough role was in the 1952 classic, “Singin’ in the Rain,” where she starred opposite Gene Kelly. She acted in dozens of films over four decades, including having a short-lived sitcom in 1969, “The Debbie Reynolds Show.” Her marriage to Eddie Fisher  dissolved publicly in 1958 when he left her for Hollywood dame Elizabeth Taylor — a close friend. The breakup was the scandal of the 1950s. Both her children were in the business. Her daughter, Carrie, became a star in her own right with her role as Princess Leia  in the “Star Wars” franchise and her son, Todd, became a filmmaker. Her granddaughter, Billie Lourd, is also an actress.
