See Mo Rocca’s wonderful appreciation of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’
As a star of musicals and romantic comedies, Debbie Reynolds seemed unstoppable and, yes, unsinkable – until the the death this week of her daughter, “Star Wars” actress and writer Carrie Fisher. Mo Rocca had an appreciation, times two, on CBS Sunday Morning today. BONUS VIDEOS: Below is a 1994 CBS Sunday Morning profile on Debbie. She was 62 and immersed in her Vegas casino. Then two years later she did a terrific interview with Larry King on CNN. Love in the beginning when she gives King a jab for featuring her first ex-husband Eddie Fisher as his guest on Father’s Day. Fisher not only famously left Debbie for Elizabeth Taylor in 1958, he also was an absentee father. ‘I called up Connie Stevens and we spent hours on the phone laughing,’ Debbie tells King. Connie Stevens also had two children with Eddie Fisher who he similarly negkected.
