Carrie Fisher - Carrie Fisher Not Drunk On Cruise Ship, Actress Hospitalized For Bi-Polar Disorder

Reports that Carrie Fisher was drunk during a recent cruise ship performance have been denied by her representative, who explained that her odd behaviour was in fact caused by her bi-polar disorder. The 56 year-old actress was performing on the Holland America Eurodam, in the Caribbean and in a YouTube video, can be seen singing a little off-key. TMZ report that the actress cleared up after her dog, after it messed on the stage, though frankly, we’d say that was more in the realms of ‘polite’ behaviour, rather than ‘bizarre’ behaviour, no? Though admittedly, stuffing the paper towel behind the sofa cushion afterwards was perhaps a little much.

Carrie’s rep told TMZ that she had to be hospitalized to adjust her medication, whilst on the cruise: “There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder. She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now,” though she added that it was unclear whether or not Carrie would be returning to perform on the cruise ship. Reports that Carrie was drunk during the performance, though, appear to be unfounded.

Carrie Fisher has openly spoken about her mental health disorder, including appearing on Stephen Fry’s BBC programme The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive. Fry, according to the Daily Mail, described the actress as “not mad enough to be committed but not sane enough to lead much of a normal life.” Fisher has also admitted to drug addiction in the past, as well.
