Carrie Fisher’s mother has recently passed away at the age of 84. It is believed that she suffered a stroke at her son’s home in Beverley Hills.
Her song “Aba Daba Honeymoon” ( which featured in the film Two Weeks with Love, as a duet with Carleton Carpenter) was in the top three hits in 1951.
Her musical career took from Broadway all the way to big screen acting, from starring in the musical “Best Foot Forward” in 1953 to her last big-screen appearance as herself in the 2016 documentary “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds” of course also starring her daughter Carrie Fisher who passed away just 24 hours prior to Debbie’s passing.
This comes as a massive shock to both the musical and film-making community as it has lost a princess and a queen within 24 hours of each other.
Todd Fisher (Debbie Reynolds’s son) spoke outside Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where his mother was being cared for, saying the stress of his sister’s death had been “too much”, he then followed by saying “she said ‘I want to be with Carrie’ and then she was gone”.
This sad news only hours after Debbie Reynolds had thanked fans on Facebook for their tributes and prayers in response to Carrie’s death.
