Joely Fisher tweeted about her family’s heartbreak: The double deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds – mother and daughter so intertwined they lived next door to one another – sent fans into mourning.
However, for the Fisher family, the sudden tragedies were all that much harder to bear.
Actress Carrie Fisher is a half-sister to the Fisher girls, and they are very close with her.
"She's like our spiritual guidance counselor," remarked Tricia, laughing.
The legendary blonde beauty’s website says, “It is rare that an actress can successfully transcend the entertainment gamut from Motion Picture Star, Television Star, Broadway Star, Recording Artist, to the concert stage and then on to develop a successful cosmetic empire.” After starring in a series of teen and then adult dramas, Stevens turned herself into a Vegas headliner, a Broadway actress, and even a singer in commercials.
