I’ve promoted Carrie Fisher many, many times on this blog. It’s no exaggeration to say she is my hero. Despite having so much to lose, because she’s a celebrity, Carrie has no skeletons in her closet. For decades she’s courageously been open and honest about having bipolar disorder, as well as a history of using LSD and other drugs.
Last night Carrie had a heart attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Emergency units met her plane in LA and she is still in intensive care. I’ve thought of her all night.
Not only does Carrie speak honestly, she’s also pretty damned funny. The video below is an interview she did on the Today show in 2008. It perfectly illustrates why I adore her. Hang in there, Carrie.
