Just one day after her daughter died, Debbie Reynolds told her son,
“I want to be with Carrie.“
And she was gone. Well, the woman knew how to make an exit. Five years ago, in 2011, Reynolds and Fisher appeared together for an extensive interview on Oprah. During the interview, mother and daughter speak about many things; love, marriage, divorce, family, mental illness, drug addiction and their admiration for each other. Fisher said,
“I believe my mother knows now but if she doesn’t, it would be good if she did: that I take her advice, that I follow her example, that I respect who she is … and if I’m like her in any way then I’m happy that I am.”
And they sing together for the only time ever in public.
