Consoling Elizabeth Taylor

My love for Carrie Fisher is well-known.

Last Tuesday, she was on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON and mentioned that she and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, had recently attended Elizabeth Taylor's birthday party in Las Vegas.

Carrie was amazed that there were press at the event asking if Debbie had finally forgiven Elizabeth.

Craig then asked Carrie to explain what happened between Debbie and Elizabeth for the young 'uns in the audience who might not know.

He began with, "Your mother was married to..." which quick-witted Carrie interrupted by saying...

"My father.

My father was a man named Eddie Fisher and they were best friends with Elizabeth Taylor and her husband at the time, Mike Todd.

Mike Todd tragically passed away in a plane accident and my father consoled Elizabeth with his penis. "

THAT is why I love Carrie Fisher!

Carrie ended by saying...

"Well you know, you can say it with flowers or..."

Carrie Fisher. Twenty-Five years after Leia. Still stunning. Still beautiful. And this century's Dorothy Parker.

Whim - I sincerely hope that one day I either get to meet Carrie Fisher or genetically BECOME her.

Either one will do.

Jer - There are our girls!!!

And I have to admit, Audra comes across as the woman you want to be best friends with and Donna comes off as that girl who always got the part in the high school play that you wanted and and always slightly gloated about it in an indirect way.

But I would still drink her bath water.

Princess Banter - Yes, she is! In or out of that metal "Leia Chained To Jabba The Hutt" bikini, Carrie Fisher is hilarious!
