Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher shared a bond like no other. Friends and family of Carrie Fisher, who died at age 60 on Dec. 27 after a heart attack, gathered Thursday for an intimate memorial at her Beverly Hills home. On Friday, a funeral service for Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, who died at age 84 following a possible stroke just one day after her daughter, will take place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles. For Fisher’s memorial on Thursday, her daughter, Billie Lourd, 24, chose to have it at her mother’s home, where Fisher famously and frequently entertained (Reynolds also lived on the property).
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died within a day of one another last week — at ages 60 and 84, respectively — had a mother-daughter relationship like no other. Fisher often joked that she and her mother, next-door neighbors in Beverly Hills, were living in a reality show. The Bright Lights trailer shows a few moments that back up her quip — Fisher chiding Reynolds about her ancient cell phone, the two picking out an outfit for Reynolds’ cabaret show — but also hints at a deeper look at the family’s complicated history.
