During her lifetime, she dealt with public highs and lows. These ranged from an Oscar nomination for ''The Unsinkable Molly Brown'' to three bad marriages: Music/EddieFisher dumped Reynolds for her friend Creator/ElizabethTaylor, causing a media circus. Second and third husbands Harry Karl and Richard Hamlett left her in financial ruin due to their bad investments. Despite these hardships, her nearly seventy-year career in film, television, and stage endured.

She died on December 28, 2016, at the age of 84, the very day after her daughter Creator/CarrieFisher, most likely out of [[DeathByDespair grief]]. Her last words were "I miss her so much... I want to be with Carrie." The two of them were estranged for over a decade but became close again in then-recent years. There's a good documentary about their relationship called ''Bright Lights'' (2016), which was a filmed a few months before their deaths.
