Debbie Reynolds died at age 84 yesterday, just a day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died on Tuesday of cardiac arrest after suffering a massive heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. According to TMZ, Reynolds was rushed to the hospital around 1 p.m. on Wednesday after suffering from a stroke. The site reports that Debbie was at her son Todd’s home in Beverly Hills, where they were making funeral plans for Carrie, when a 911 call had to be made for Debbie to report a possible stroke.
