TMZ- Debbie Reynolds — who rose to stardom in “Singin’ in the Rain” and quickly became a staple among Hollywood royalty — died Wednesday as a result of a stroke, TMZ has learned … just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away … this according to her son Todd. Debbie was rushed to a hospital shortly after 1 PM when someone at the Beverly Hills home of her son, Todd, called 911 to report a possible stroke. We’re told Debbie and Todd were making funeral plans for Carrie, who died Tuesday of cardiac arrest. Debbie famously divorced Eddie Fisher in 1959 after his affair with Elizabeth Taylor. ?Debbie married 2 more times in 1960 and 1984. She played iconic roles in “Tammy and the Bachelor” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” … for which she earned an Oscar nomination. Carrie’s relationship with Debbie was the focus of Carrie’s semi-autobiographical book, “Postcards from the Edge,” which was later adapted for the big screen, starring Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine. Debbie’s survived by her son Todd, who tells us, “She’s with Carrie.” She was 84.
Not even worth doing the “2016 stinks” song and dance anymore. Death hits Princess Leia and her real life Hollywood royalty mom within 24 hours of each other is just flat out wild. And if Debbie Reynolds dying of a Joe Pa broken heart or Todd Fisher having to bury his mom and his sister doesn’t bum you out enough, look at the Twitter feed for Carrie Fisher’s dog from the last week.

Jesus Christ. Somebody just hadddd to bring the dog angle into this whole equation because it all wasn’t sad enough, huh? RIP Debbie and Carrie.
Crazy that this picture was made yesterday and is already outdated.
I forgot that the actor that played R2-D2 (yes there was a guy inside) died this year. 2016 really was a motherfucker, man.
