RIP Debbie Reynolds dies at 84

Debbie Reynolds -- who rose to stardom in "Singin' in the Rain" and quickly became a staple among Hollywood royalty -- died Wednesday as a result of a stroke, TMZ has learned ... just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away ... this according to her son Todd.

Debbie was rushed to a hospital shortly after 1 PM when someone at the Beverly Hills home of her son, Todd, called 911 to report a possible stroke. We're told Debbie and Todd were making funeral plans for Carrie, who died Tuesday of cardiac arrest.

How heartbreaking and tragic for that family! As a mother, I can see that planning your child's funeral was just too much for her. How very very sad.

RIP Debbie Reynolds.

And I, for one, will be very happy to see the back end of 2016.

I had the fortune to meet and talk to Debbie Reynolds on a couple of occasions when I lived in Las Vegas years ago. She was one of the sweetest, down-to-earth celebrities ever. How sad that she died of a broken heart.

I feel horrible for the family. To lose two at once. No more singin' in the rain.

And she did die of a broken heart.
