CARRIE FISHER: WISHFUL DRINKING

web.ae.weekendcariecut.picA.jpg
We love a girl who can forgive but not forget. That’s how Carrie Fisher looks back on her life in her one woman show “Wishful Drinking” at the Geffen Playhouse. Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher should be proud – they produced a problematic but supersmart daughter with a great comic take on life whose mottos include “Instant gratification takes too long.” In her gossip addled show, Carrie maps a star-studded dysfunctional family tree and pokes fun at dad – who mistook his new mini hearing aids for pills and swallowed them with water. Carrie reminisces about George Lucas who made her so famous in Star Wars, and OUR favorite revelation: her secret affair with Harrison Ford during filming! She puts on a great show – we were never crazy about Star Wars, but now we’re CRAZY about Carrie Fisher. See this, if you can!

    postcards is a great movie. i didn’t appreciate the first time around but it’s one of my all time faves now.
    very funny and painful too.
    i just didn’t care for merryl streep’s hair in the movie, too many split ends and a strange looking dull shade of blonde.
    uh.. an affair with ford?
    that is interesting because he was hot back them. hot n’married at the time?

    I, too, adore Carrie. Her work is great, and even the bit parts she plays now and then in movies and TV shows are fun. I wish her more success and strength.

    She was great in a bit-part on “Sex and the City” years ago. Also love “Postcards from the Edge.” I bet her show is great!

    Carrie Fisher is amazing. I’m sure you all know that her main gig the last decade or so has been script doctor. She just lands, takes a so-so script and makes magic, and fades away and lets the “writer” take all the credit. Brilliant!

    She’s caustically funny and I hope she brings this show to NYC.

    She is refreshingly honest.
    Years ago, Carrie Fisher had photographs taken of her. She showed both the before and after
    pictures. Some showed her just as she is for real. the other photos of her were all with makeup and wardrobe and maybe photoshopping to show women the difference a bunch of experts in crafting image make. I respected her for doing that, she is really cool.

    Too bad we can’t say the same for that old booze hound Harrison Ford.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
