When Carrie Fisher went off to heaven to tell the angels like it is, there were stories saying that her beloved dog/sidekick Gary Fisher was going to live with her daughter Billie Lourd. But those stories were made of lies and Gary ended up moving in with her assistant at the time, Corby McCoin. Since then, Corby has become Gary’s manager of sorts. Corby is in charge of Gary’s Instagram account, which has 163,000 followers, and books him gigs at ComicCons and shit. But a source tells TMZ that Billie Lourd and her father/Carrie’s ex-partner Bryan Lourd want Corby to retire Gary from the spotlight. They feel that Gary becoming “the face of Carrie Fisher” cheapens her legacy. It’s a good thing that dogs can’t read or understand human words because if they could, Gary Fisher may be highly offended by anyone saying that he, a flawless diamond of a pooch, is capable of cheapening anything! The Audacity!
When 29-year-old Colton Haynes got engaged to his 46-year-old flower daddy Jeff Leatham (he’s a floral designer), it was a big, gay extravaganza complete with fireworks, drama and an appearance by Cher. So when I heard they were getting married this weekend, I prepared to explode into a tornado of glitter from the glorious gayness of their wedding. I expected to see Barbra Streisand softly yodel out Evergreen while officiating their ceremony from a giant crystal swan covered with rhinestone-encrusted white orchids imported from Thailand. But I guess all their money was spent on the engagement ceremony, because they had to settle for Pimp Mama Kris as their officiant.
The trailer for American Horror Story: Cult dropped yesterday, and, no, it wasn’t just a film of Hillary Clinton’s supporters sipping a giant vat of Sleepy-Tea to slumber on through the next four years. Instead, that shit begins in Michigan on Election Night 2016. You know, that state everyone knew HRC had on lock, so she didn’t even bother to visit. Welp, we know how that turned out: HORRIBLE. Thus, Ryan Murphy knew nothing would be spookier reliving that shit. Only, he could make it spookier…WITH CLOWNS!
Carrie Fisher always seemed, to me at least, like she was the type of mom with a never-ending wealth of good advice. Sort of a learn-from-my-mistakes kind of thing, or just the result of living the equivalent of five normal lifetimes in her own life. Her daughter, Billie Lourd, recently spoke with her American Horror Story co-star Sarah Paulson for Town & Country. And it turns out that yes, Carrie Fisher gave the kind of guidance you’d expect a legend like Carrie Fisher to give.
We’re still mourning the passing of Princess Leia (tn Carrie Fisher – one of the most delightful and witty actresses/authors/humans with whom the world had been gifted). I can’t pass an ornate gold and leather bikini and bondage collar w/chain without sighing deeply and sadly.
Carrie passed after suffering a heart attack on a plane in December of last year (aka “The Year Everyone Died“). The L.A. County Coroner’s Office has determined that her heart attack was caused by “sleep apnea” as well as other “unidentified factors,” according to People. The report also noted that she had “atherosclerotic heart disease” and that “drug use” was a factor. They’re not saying which drugs Carrie was taking but the report did note that “Fisher had taken multiple drugs prior to her death.”
After many people finished scraping up the souls that fell out of their bodies from reading about how the one-of-a-kind Carrie Fisher is no longer with us, their first thought was probably, “But what will happen to Gary Fisher?!!”
