On my three mile walk today I was listening to a podcast today I subscribe to called, Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin.  He was interviewing Debbie Reynolds one of my all time favorite actresses.  Debbie starred in many films but my favorite was her first movie called Tammy.  The movie was a hit long before I was born, but rainy Saturdays and sometimes, sunny Saturday afternoons were spent watching old movies.


In the podcast interview with Alec, Debbie told the behind the scenes stories few people know about.  She told about her marriage to Eddie Fisher. He is the father of Carrie Fisher – Princess Leia from Star Wars.


Debbie told about how it hurt when her husband left her with two young children to run into the arms of her childhood friend, Elizabeth Taylor.


Alec asked Debbie, “were you ever able to become friends again?”



Today, I’m writing over with my friends at Outside The City Gate.  Would you come over and consider leaving a comment?  See you there!
