Friends, Fans & Co-Stars Remember OG Hollywood Royalty Debbie Reynolds

After the death of Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds at the age of 84 – just a day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher, aged 60 – friends and associates of the silver screen star are mourning her loss and the utter tragedy of the past week. 

Co-stars of Reynolds from her singing, dancing heyday through to her later work as Bobbi Adler on Will & Grace have posted tributes to the entertainer, remembering her as wickedly funny and unyieldingly professional.

You’d hope those close to the pair have found some small measure of solace in the sentiment of Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher, who said “she’s with Carrie now.”


Debbie went to be with Carrie. She always worried about her. Carrie left too soon and now they are together again. My heart is literally broken. For 8 years she was my mom. She was pure energy & light when she came on stage. She was loving, and bawdy, and playful- a consummate pro- old school and yet had the work ethic and investment in her craft of a new fiery up and comer. She was always running off to Vegas or somewhere else “on the road” to be a hoofer, to sing and dance and make people laugh. She performed 340 days out of the year. An inspiration on every level. A Legend of course, the epitome of clean cut American optimism, dancing with Gene Kelly as an equal, a warrior woman who never stopped working. A devoted mother and grandmother, and aunt and great aunt, and friend. I lost my mom a few years ago. She loved that Debbie was my TV mom. I hope they find each other and hug and kiss and my mom says, “I got you, Debbie. Carrie’s waiting for you.” RIP Bobbie Adler. ?
