Carrie Fisher has a new book coming out. For some reason I always think she has written 20 biographies about herself. Maybe it is because she has given so many interviews. Anyway, she has a new book coming out called Wishful Drinking. In this book she basically whines about how popular her mother Debbie Reynolds was while Carrie was growing up and how she didn't get enough alone time with her mother and blah blah blah. As a result of this lack of alone time she turned to drugs. Basically all of her life's problems based on that. I know Carrie is a manic depressive, but basically it seems as if she lays the blame for everything bad that has happened in her life at the feet of her mother. How about taking some responsibility for yourself and your own actions.
Now, the one that was in the book that I do blame on her mother and which just blew me away is that Carrie's mom suggested that Carrie go ahead and get pregnant and have a baby with her stepfather. Ummm, Carrie's mom says sleep with my husband and let him get you pregnant. OK, I can see where that would be reason to have a drink or 20 for about a year. But after that. No excuses.
