Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher are likely to be given a joint funeral as relatives plan a shared memorial service for the mother and daughter who were two of the biggest icons in film history. Despite what people may have thought, Reynolds hadn't been in deep "inconsolable" grief when she passed, he said. "I think that we are all, possibly, sinkable", Reynolds said. "She also annoys me sometimes when she's mad at the nurses, but she's an extraordinary woman".
Billie was pictured being comforted by fellow actor Taylor Lautner just moments before her grandmother was rushed to hospital. Since being admitted on the 23 December, reports suggested her condition was improving and was stable by Boxing Day. She'd initially meant to fly from London to NY to work with HBO on the film, but she instead flew to Los Angeles to spend time with her family for Christmas. "That was also a lovely thing, that they could be together at that level".
"She has been more than a mother to me, not much, but definitely more". I'm not joking when I say she left to be with her, and I'm happy about that.
Sources close to the family told TMZ it's what the mother and daughter "would have wanted".
"Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds", an intimate documentary about the bond between the Hollywood troupers shot a year before they died, will air on HBO January 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
After 10 years of not communicating with each other Debbie Reynolds bought the house next door to Carrie.
No parent should ever have to bare the pain of losing a child and for Debbie, all she wanted was to be with her daughter.
He added: "She said, 'I want to be with Carrie". Words of solace and love have poured out from celebrities and fans alike, and now, Billie Lourd's stepfather, Bruce Bozzi, posted a tribute to the stars.
