    I didn't think she would survive her ordeal. Nevertheless, I'm still really sad about it.

    I was almost certain she wasn't going to (or hadn't?) survive the incident on the airliner last week. From the first day, all we heard was "she is stable". No other details, progress reports or such. 60 is too damned young to die from the ticker.

    She was without air for approximately 10 minutes -- that pretty much seals the deal.
    So yeah, pretty damn serious.

    Also, I still can't get passed the fact that Carrie is Debbie Reynolds' daughter.
    I love her in Singing In The Rain.

    I knew her mother was a star from the SW promo materials I read in '77*, but I never did see anything she was in.

    *Yes, I am old enough where I was an adult when SW came out and I still remember the Star Wars mania that swept this country for about the next year. Heck, both the "main" theme music and the cantina band made the top 40 radio playlists. And you couldn't pick up a magazine without reading an article about at least one of its stars.

    So yeah, pretty damn serious.

    Also, I still can't get passed the fact that Carrie is Debbie Reynolds' daughter.
    I love her in Singing In The Rain.
    A lot of sites are now reporting that Debbie Reynolds has died.

    Can you believe this? They've set up a GoFundMe page for Betty White to raise money to 'save her from the 2016 curse' (of death). They've gotten to their goal, so the article I read said. Isn't that stupid?! Sheesh!

    Yep, that news was a shocker. Kind of freaky. Carrie died the day before and now her mom dies from a stroke. They basically went almost together from different causes.

    Someone elsewhere said they heard a news report that mom mentioned to one of the nurses "i will be with her shortly" or something like that.

    Saddened by the passing fo Debbie Reynolds -- I only know her from Singing In The Rain, but that so happens to be my all-time favorite film. And approximately, since a year as the mother of Carrie.

    Once more together, we'll hear "Good Morning" in the distance, as sung by Donald O'Connor, Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds.

    Did you know the GoFundMe was in fact a veiled effort the raise money for a Childrens' Art Program?

    That Viral GoFundMe Isn't Really About Protecting Betty White from 2016

    "the funds gathered were earmarked for a local theater in order to "help craft new stars of stage and screen to carry mantle of the legends that have left is this year.""



    So, not stupid at all.

    Barbara Tarbuck, ‘General Hospital’ and ‘American Horror Story’ Actress, Dies at 74

    She died of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and this is the first time I have heard of a famous person dying of this. I've seen it mentioned on CSI NY 3 times in the same episode, and one or more of the Law & Orders. It's a terrible brain disease that has no cure or treatment. I should know it's very disease my dad died of last year.
