Actress and sci-fi legend Carrie Fisher was briefly hospitalized after displaying erratic behaviour aboard a cruise ship.
Miss Fisher appeared as a “surprise celebrity guest” on board the Holland America Eurodam cruise ship in the Carribean last week. Reports of the incident claim Fisher began acting strange while singing (do you have any idea how hard it is to NOT make a Star Wars Holiday Special joke here?), and video shows her slurring her words and, apparently, cleaning up dog poop on stage. Many onlookers believed her to be drunk.
Carrie Fisher is a longtime sufferer of bipolar disorder, and has spoken publicly and in her writing many times about her struggles with the condition. After the incident, she checked herself into an unspecified medical facility. Her representative reported that she needed an adjustment to her medication, and that she is feeling much better now.
Our hearts go out to Miss Fisher, and, on behalf of NerdBastards, I would like to wish her good health and good fortune.
Get well soon, Carrie! Remember: You have a promise to keep
