Carrie Fisher In Critical Condition After Cardiac Episode

The Los Angeles Times reports:

“Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher was in critical condition Friday after suffering a “cardiac episode” during a flight from London to Los Angeles, according to emergency officials. Fisher, 60, was rushed to the hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics shortly after noon, after her flight touched down at LAX.

A source who said they were not authorized to discuss the incident said the actress was “in a lot of distress on the flight.” Fisher, who rose to stardom as Princess Leia, recently published an autobiography titled the ”Princess Diarist,” her eighth book. She is the daughter of famous Hollywood couple Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher.

    Oh no! I hope she gets well. She is way too young for this kind of thing.

    • Todd20036

      Yeah. 60 is merely mid-late middle aged.

      • bkmn

        Unfortunately she was into some hard core drugs when she was younger. I hope the drugs haven’t weakened her heart.

        • Bad Tom

          Sadly, they almost certainly did.

      • Michael Abbett

        Thank you for giving my 53 year-old self something to hang on to in the midst of the horribleness in the world.

        I hope she has a speedy recovery. We’ve lost too many this year.

      • Christopher

        OMG you’re kidding!

        I’m 43. You mean this just keeps going?

        Fuck! This must be how it feels to be on death row. 😉

        • another_steve

          After a while, you’ll develop dementia and will forget how horrible life can sometimes be.

          My husband (older than I) has an amazing memory. I have a terrible one.

          We’ll be driving past a restaurant and he’ll say to me, “Remember the terrible service we received there in 1989 and how we had to call the manager over and complain? And how they refunded the cost of our dinners but not the cost of the bottle of Pinot Noir we had?”

          Me, I don’t even remember ever having eaten there.

          • gaymex1

            lol I’m the same, especially when he says “you seemed to have enjoyed the movie more this time.”
            What?

          • MT YVR

            Little John, on his last days in the hospital, developed some sort of dementia thing. So I grabbed a bag of caramel eggs and dropped them on his bed. Told him to hide them and in an hour, when he forgot, he would have surprise treats.

            Family hated me. He almost fell out of the bed laughing.

            It’s how I want to go. “Surprise! Chocolate in the bed!” … 😉

          • another_steve

            Great story, MT YVR. 😉

            My mom went full-dementia (bordering on Alzheimer’s) toward the end. I and my man would go visit her and she would always be so very delighted to meet him.

            Each and every time, once or twice a week, she would be so very delighted to meet him for the first time.

            Hey, man and I have a rather extensive collection of 45s. Passed down to us by several generations of relatives.

            Lots of Christmas music.

            We listened to one just the other night.

          • Ernest Endevor

            12 inch long player? A step down to 45s.

      Did you notice how hard she was breathing.

      • Gustav2

        She did not look well, tired.

    I will be ‘Wishful Drinking’ for her.

      That’s apparently online through veoh, though I’m not exactly sure they should be streaming it.

  • Mihangel apYrs

    slightly off topic – she looks much better in this photo than she did in SW7 (where she looked worn).

    Good luck luvvie

  • Cousin Bleh

    Damn, 2016 is determined to kick our asses right up to New Years. I hope someone has secured George RR Martin in a safehouse somewhere, along with Betty White because that would just be too sad to lose the last remaining Golden Girl.

    • Christopher

      Told the hubby last week if anything happens to Betty White put me on suicide watch!

    • kevin vincent

      Please for the love of every god bothering to listen 2016 don’t you DARR touch a hair on Betty’s head

      • Reality.Bites

        Betty was on TV in the 1930s, before most Americans had even seen TV. And every decade since then.

        She can stop when she reaches ten decades (into the 20s). Not before.

        On of the trade magazines just did a feature on actors still active in their 90s. I learned that Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks, both widowed after long marriages, get together most nights to watch TV together, which I think is awfully sweet. I don’t know either of them, of course, but I’m inclined to think well of a couple of guys who sustained life-long marriages and friendship.

        I was surprised to learn that Norman Lloyd is still alive (I just assumed) and over 100 and still acting. And Cicely Tyson is 92. And looking DAMN fine.

        • SoCalGal20

          Kirk Douglas just turned 100 last week!

          Cicely looks fantastic. I had no idea she was 92!

          • Reality.Bites

            Neither did I. There were few surprises in there, but she’d somehow been fixed at 50-ish in my head.

        • kevin vincent

          I absolutely adore Betty I have a extreme affinity for TGG since not only is it a timeless classic of amazing I watched it with my mom
          Who passed away this year in January so this year STARTED awful for me but seriously can we by committee order her immortal? Her and George? Their deaths would be crushing no matter what

        • Avenger280

          Recalling a funny SNL skit w/ Maya Rudolph:

          Maya: (holding crumbs) My muffin is in pieces
          Betty: Don’t worry honey. My muffin hasn’t been in 1 piece since 1939

        • William

          Cicely Tyson stopped aging when she was 25. Recently, she has nearly reached 30.

  • Spongebob CrankyPants

    Wish her the best.

        Or jalapeño stuffed!

    • another_steve

      Sorry hon, but nature’s purpose for an olive is to grace a martini glass.

      • Piercedchrlz

        Let it swim for a moment, eat it and fill the void with gin.

        • William

          I wish I could drink gin. Live in Texas long enough and you become allergic to cedar (juniper). For the last 20 years, gin makes me projectile vomit.

          • barrixines as aladdin, nightly

            I’ll drink just about anything but even the smell of gin makes me heave – I can’t stand juniper.

          • William

            I’m that way with bourbon. I’ve had bartenders put bourbon in a drink instead of what I ordered. My arm locks about halfway, before I can even smell the bourbon.

          • Six Pins Delores

            Whisky, BLECH.

    • ceeenbee

      Try white anchovy stuffed, Anastasia. You will change your mind about the lowly olive.

    • Acronym Jim

      Just keep a bowl of olives on the side with some toothpicks. That way you can use the martini as both a main dish and a dip.

  • ByronK

    Oh, crap, can this year suck donkey balls any worse?! I saw her one woman show a couple of years ago and she called me up on stage with her. Gave me an autographed box of penis pasta and had me close the first half of the show for her. I have a photo of her with us both in Princess Leia wigs. She was very, very sweet and said I asked her the weirdest, most fucked up question from the audience she’d ever heard. I so hope she will be ok…

    • ByronK

      Fuck, face leaking…

      • Bad Tom

        Me, too.

    • pch1013

      What was the question?

      • ByronK

        When your gay best friend died in your bed and you called for the ambulance, did you put on makeup before they arrived? She said, “I’m shocked that you’d think I’m that shallow, but they thought I had a really beautiful house.” LOL

        • barrixines as aladdin, nightly

          Both your question and her answer make me very very happy.

    • jimbo65

      That’s a great memory to have of her. Dammit I could kick myself for not getting her autograph and meeting her when she was at Wizard World in Chicago this past summer

    • I saw that show as well. She’s really a fantastic storyteller. I hope she pulls through this. She almost lost her mother (the even more fabulous Debbie Reynolds) earlier this year.

    Paul Simon was married to Carrie Fisher at one point.
    She said she thought this song referenced their relationship.
    She said, “How can you not love someone who writes ‘Medicine is magical, and magical is art’?”

    The Mississippi Delta was shining
    Like a National guitar
    I am following the river
    Down the highway
    Through the cradle of the civil war
    I’m going to Graceland
    Graceland
    In Memphis Tennessee
    I’m going to Graceland
    Poor boys and pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland
    My traveling companion is nine years old
    He is the child of my first marriage
    But I’ve reason to believe
    We both will be received
    In Graceland

    She comes back to tell me she’s gone
    As if I didn’t know that
    As if I didn’t know my own bed
    As if I’d never noticed
    The way she brushed her hair from her forehead
    And she said losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you’re blown apart
    Everybody sees the wind blow

    I’m going to Graceland
    Memphis Tennessee
    I’m going to Graceland
    Poor boys and pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland

    And my traveling companions
    Are ghosts and empty sockets
    I’m looking at ghosts and empties
    But I’ve reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    There is a girl in New York City
    Who calls herself the human trampoline
    And sometimes when I’m falling, flying
    Or tumbling in turmoil I say
    Oh, so this is what she means
    She means we’re bouncing into Graceland
    And I see losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you’re blown apart
    Everybody sees the wind blow

    In Graceland, in Graceland
    I’m going to Graceland
    For reasons I cannot explain
    There’s some part of me wants to see
    Graceland
    And I may be obliged to defend
    Every love, every ending
    Or maybe there’s no obligations now
    Maybe I’ve a reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    • In her one-woman show she plays a song Simon wrote about her after their break-up. She pauses it at one point and says “I was a bitch.” She also recommends dating him so he will write a song about you because “he’s very good!”

      The best part of the show, however, was when she pulled down a giant diagram to explain her family tree. It seems that one year at Elizabeth Taylor’s annual Easter Egg Hunt (for her grandchildren and anyone else she knew with kids) her daughter and Taylor’s grandson had been trying to figure out if they were related. It’s actually a good question but it does require a detailed chart. She quickly explained, for the younger people in the audience that her mom Debbie Reynolds was Jennifer Annisten, her dad was Brad Pitt and Liz Taylor was Angelina Jolie. Okay her dad was no Brad Pitt, but the comparison was funny because it was true. (Spoiler Alert: her daughter and Taylor’s grandson were only related by scandal, not by blood.)

      • Bad Tom

        YES! I remember that diagram. My husband and I were just reminiscing about it.
        ——-
        She jokes early in the show that she couldn’t get permission to do the song, but she’s doing it anyway.
        —–
        Later she explains, “Relax, I got clearance.”

  • barrixines as aladdin, nightly

    Carrie Fisher is an all round Good Thing. So of course this pig of a year would try to find a way to take her out. I absolutely love her smarts – even more so the off-kilter smarts of the last few years. Her continued amusement at the world, despite having been to some pretty dark places in herself, is something of an inspiration.

    Hang in there, woman.

    • whollyfool

      I love her. She is so bravely honest, so absolutely fearless about looking the truth square in the eye, and so clever and witty at the same time. Leia is great, but Carrie Fisher has been a hero of mine for a very long time.

  • SunsetGay

    You can’t have her, 2016!

        I suspect they wouldn’t do that, despite the precedent of Peter Cushing. The loss would be too recent – it would creep out and offend people.

    • barrixines as aladdin, nightly

      Oh was she in Star Trek?

      • Gianni

        Close, but no cigar! Star Wars.

        • barrixines as aladdin, nightly

          😉 It might have been a little joke. Of all the things that I love about the wonderful Carrie Fisher, Star Wars is pretty far down on the list. I really enjoy the way other people geek out on the films but (whispering very quietly) I am quite indifferent to them.

          • grada3784

            Try Soapdish. She played Betsy Anne Sharon, a self-described bitch.

          • Gianni

            I’ve always liked them, but now that I’m older, I’m not at all given to going bonkers over this, that, or the other new movie. I prefer Star Trek only because I was a graduating teen when it premiered on TV. Star struck might be the word, but never been about dressing in costume and attending conventions. The newest incarnations have now gotten ahead of me. I haven’t seen the latest two.

    • ColdCountry

      In 1977 she was one lick-ass heroine. Hell, she still was in 2015. You’ve had your share, 2016; enough is enough!

        Lick-ass? I think Carrie Fisher would howl with laughter at that description.

    • Gustav2

      “is a laugh and a half.”

      Yes, that made me chuckle and shake my head.

    • Gianni

      Isn’t it always that way? They can’t see the forest for the trees until the dirtbag like Paladino goes a little too far for their forgiveness. Yet, looking back over his public record/displays, how could anyone miss what a shitpile he is? It was repeatedly on display for all to see.

    Weird coincidence – I watched Postcards from the Edge last night for the first time. Star-studded cast but you wonder how much “semi” there is in a semi-autobiographical film.

    • Gustav2

      Just don’t ask Debbie Reynolds to twirl when she is in a short skirt.

      I should really have that tattooed.

      • ByronK

        Where? 😉

  • Secure

    Please pull through Carrie. Fuck I love her.

  • GODDAMMIT!!!!! I cannot take this!!!

    • Phillip in L.A.

      Hey! That’s my catch-phrase, ChristopherM! Also, “more man than you’ll ever be; more woman than you’ll ever have”–love it! Probably one of the most-oft-said lines of my life.

  • Reality.Bites

    I saw her just the other night on 8 out of 10 Cats’ Christmas special. She was a lot of fun.

  • Lazycrockett
    • Cuberly

      Ugh.

    • safari

      I mean it wasn’t *that* bad for a holiday special airing between Thanksgiving and Christmas that was trying to be non-denominational while attempting to bridge a space epic with a traditional holiday variety show.

      • Lazycrockett

        If Lucas hadn’t thrown such a fit and tried to destroy all the copies it would be seen as slightly odd, slightly campy and very 70’s. It’s really not any more kitschy than what else was airing during the holiday season of said decade.

        • Phillip in L.A.

          gurl–only *slightly* campy? ;}

          Also, see my other comment up a few notches.

    • OMG I remember watching this on TV. It wasn’t so much bad as too surreal to be believed. Bootleg copies abound but it will never get an official release so long as George Lucas is alive.

    • Phillip in L.A.

      Thx for posting, Lazycrockett! I don’t believe I ever saw this before.
      Does this qualify as high camp? Yes–it does!

      2016 ain’t over yet!

    • Bad Tom

      Getting a pulse back means there is hope.
      But if she can’t breathe on her own, she has suffered a serious injury.

  • SoCalGal20

    Goddammit 2016, DON’T YOU TAKE CARRIE FISHER TOO.

  • ByronK

    I was just on the phone with a friend and said one of the hardest things is that it is a part of your youth being threatened. I loved the gold bikini but more in a camp way and saw her as a really cool sister I’d love. But I think back to growing up gay in a factory city and those movies were such a huge escape for me. My parents forbid me from seeing he first movie again after the 11th time. But sitting there in the dark, the thought of being in a galaxy far, far away and not where lived was a powerful thing (ya, gay robots!! lol). And Han Solo, don’t get me started.

    • William

      Han should never be solo.

  • Henry Auvil

    After reading today’s news, I know just how she feels. May the Force be with her.

  • jimbo65

    Please get well soon beloved Princess

    • Phillip in L.A.

      Love your pithy and poignant comment, jimbo65!

  • Silver Badger

    Good luck Ms. Fisher.

  • Lakeview Bob

    I hope she recovers quickly. After Debbie Reynolds had two strokes earlier this year she has become very dependent on Carrie. She lives in one of the guest houses on the estate.

  • Jeffrey

    No you fucking don’t 2016

  • bambinoitaliano
  • safari

    I guess we’ll find out shortly whether or not she made it. Her daughter has arrived at the hospital.

    • kevin vincent

      Her poor children whatca fucking nightmare

  • sdnative1958

    3:58 PM PT — Carrie’s brother, Todd, just told AP she’s in stable condition…

    • matrem

      Thank goddess!

      • Natty Enquirer

        But let’s not get our hopes up yet. Fifteen minutes without a pulse can have grave consequences.

    • kevin vincent

      Thank god really thank god

    • Cuberly

      Thank goodness!

      Sheesh…this was not fun. Don’t do this again Carrie, no….just NO!

  • Dazzer

    Carrie Fisher is on a Christmas panel show in the UK at the moment (8 Out of 10 Cats on Channel 4).

    She’s looking surprisingly good.

  • houstonray

    2016, do NOT do this to us…not sure how much more we can take.

  • David From Canada

    Carrie has had too many drugs, booze, and life in the fast lane, and it’s all caught up with her.
    I remember in her younger years she seemed very smart-assed and was always making fun of someone. She looked like hell in last year’s new Star Wars movie.
    I hope she recovers but she needs to turn the volume down on the highlife and get going in the right direction.
    Leave it to Carrie to make a splash in the news right before Christmas.

    • Natty Enquirer

      What a bunch of moralistic drek. It’s Carrie’s life to live and it’s up to her to find the “right direction.” Turn the volume down as low as you like and you will still end up in the same place. As will we all.

      • Lazycrockett

        She has been clean and sober for years but I guess a simple google would take the fun out of being an asshole.

  • M Jackson

    Soo many reasons to wish for her recovery, not least of which is for the sake of her mother.

    I met her twice back when I used to be on the stage, and I’ve never met anyone kinder and more generous than Debbie Reynolds. She’s had enough struggles in her lifetime without this too.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Really 2016? You couldn’t do this to Newt Gingrich or Charles Manson instead?

    • MichaelJ

      I can think of more strategic targets than Gingrich or Manson.

      • William

        Something orange?

        • Daveed_WOW

          At 70 he’s on borrowed time. Mike Pence, however, is 57. Jeez. He looks 67.

  • JCF

    Prayers ascending!!!!

  • Wayne

    Don’t worry. If anyone can channel her stepmom’s penchant for living (at least) nine lives, it be her!

    • Mike_in_the_Tundra

      Who is her stepmom?

      • Lazycrockett

        Liz Taylor but I highly doubt either of them considered each other family.

      • Wayne

        Her stepmom was Elizabeth Taylor, who came through numerous life-threatening illnesses over & over again. Also, one of her signature roles was Margaret in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” — sort of a cat living continued lives kinda character!

  • lymis

    News reports are now that she’s out of the ER and considered in stable condition.

    • JCF

      Please be true!

    • fuzzybits

      Lets hope so!

    • kevin vincent

      If she is out of the ER then that is an excellent sign she mad it out okay expect possibly a sarcastic tweet and heartfelt thanks she must have felt the love pouring out yo her

    • Bad Tom

      That is wonderful news.

  • MΩebym
    • houstonray

      Awww…love this.

  • JCF

    Her brother is now just saying “she’s in ICU, we don’t know her condition, we hope for the best”. 🙁

    • kevin vincent

      Hopefully she does stabilize

      • Lazycrockett

        If she was without oxygen for as long as they said she was, its gonna be tough.

        • kevin vincent

          We can only hope

        • Natty Enquirer

          There is about six minutes’ worth of oxygen in the body that can be circulated by CPR compressions. If they used proper ventilation technique, oxygen is added and the time extended.

          • William

            Isn’t the current technique compressions only? They do carry oxygen on board aircraft, I hope it was being used

  • Latest news (ca. 11 minutes ago, um, 11 PM 12/23) is that she is reportedly in stable condition. Rooting for a full recovery.

  • Cuberly
    • Lazycrockett

      Let’s Hope.

    Saw this online and thought I’d share:

    “Carrie Fisher survived alcoholism, addiction, depression, bipolar disorder & 60 years in Hollywood. If anyone can survive 2016, it’s her.”

    May the Force be with you, Carrie!

    • IDavid

      Love that! My best to you Carrie. You are The Force!

    Carrie…..use the force…..
