Debbie Reynolds – “All in All, It’s Been a Good Life”

December 9th, 2011 by Yvonne Condes

Technorati. I can’t stop thinking about the amazing women who shared their stories. Their strength and dedication to making the world a better place had a deep impact on me.

Before the conference even started a group of us were given a tour of the Paley Center’s Hollywood Memorabilia Exhibit by none other than Debbie Reynolds.

She was fantastic! She introduced herself as Carrie Fisher’s mother and told some great stories. My favorite was about Marilyn Monroe. Debbie said she used to go to church with Marilyn and thought she was a nice girl who got swept up in the bad side of Hollywood life.

Here is my interview with Debbie Reynolds about Motherhood plus a few photos from the exhibit.
