Celebrities React to Debbie Reynolds' Death

By
Just one day after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds has died, her son Todd Fisher confirms to ET. 
The 84-year-old actress was hospitalized on Wednesday after suffering a possible stroke at her family's compound in Beverly Hills, California. Reynolds died later that day at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. 

Stars immediately express their shock and send their prayers to Reynolds' family throughout this difficult time. 

"She was beautiful and generous. It seems like only yesterday she was having lunch here at the house and we were discussing the possibility of working together in a new show. I have such fond memories of appearing with her here at the McCallum in Palm Springs. So many laughs," Reynolds' friend Carol Channing said in a statement to ET. "My prayers go out to her family. She will be missed." 

"I was blessed to work with this remarkable woman for 45 almost 50 years. That makes for a very rare bond and unique relationship. She was generous to a fault, never caring who got the laugh from the audience. I Will always love her. I am absolutely devastated tonight!" said Rip Taylor, who appeared with Reynolds on stage in Las Vegas for several decades.
"Debbie Reynolds, a legend and my movie mom. I can't believe this happened one day after Carrie. My heart goes out to Billie," Albert Brooks tweeted, as other celebs, including Joely Fisher, offered similar sentiments over social media. 
"Our Debbie is gone, but heaven awaits her and her dear Carrie with joy and happiness," said Don Rickles. "I had the great honor of working with Deb in the motion picture Rat Race and on the road she was not only a great actress, but a friend to love and respect....Rest In Peace....we loved you and miss you."
"Debbie was a talented actress, a remarkable woman and a great humanitarian," said The Mary Tyler Moore Show actress Rose Marie. "I equally adored Carrie. She had written a pilot for her mother, who had requested that I play a role opposite her. Debbie was such a generous performer that she practically had Carrie rewrite it, so I would have gotten all the laughs. Unfortunately, it didn't come to pass, but nothing would have thrilled me more. She was a good friend and deserved the title of Hollywood Royalty."
