As part of the cruise ship itinerary during my Mexican Riviera vacation, Debbie Reynolds held a great one-hour Q&A. She was witty, charming and hilarious. Old Hollywood. New Hollywood. Her marriages. Her divorces. Nothing was off limits.
One of the funniest things she said was about her marriage to Eddie Fischer. "When I was married to Eddie, before he went down the Nile . . ."
Of course, this is in reference to Eddie Fischer famously leaving Debbie to be with Elizabeth Taylor (who played Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile).
Another jem: "After Elizabeth's husband died in the plane crash, I sent Eddie over to console her. I didn't realize she would keep him."
The hour flew by and I'm sure the majority of people would have stayed another two hours. After the Q&A, Debbie signed photos and posed for pictures. I had gotten a photo with her earlier in the week, but I wanted another.
