Actress, dancer, model and pop culture legend Debbie Reynolds has died at the age of 84, TMZ reported on Wednesday night. Reynolds had been rushed to the hospital earlier in the day after suffering a stroke at her son’s home.

In addition to her numerous film roles including Singin’ in the Rain, Three Little Words, How the West Was Won, The Unsinkable Molly Brown and many others, Reynolds was known for her dancing, singing and business ventures — simply put, she did more than enough to earn her standing as one of the most beloved entertainers of all time.
She was also the mother of actress/author Carrie Fisher — who also passed away on Tuesday at the age of 60 after a massive heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
"She wanted to be with Carrie," Debbie Reynolds' son tells me.

Rest in peace.
Debbie Reynolds, a legend and my movie mom. I can't believe this happened one day after Carrie. My heart goes out to Billie.

Debbie Reynolds was one of the last of Hollywood Royalty. It breaks my heart that she is gone. I'd hoped that my grieving was done for 2016.
