Carrie Fisher gets her Walk of Fame star, on May the Fourth


On May the fourth Carrie Fisher received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Fisher joined Star Wars costars with Hollywood stars, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. She was our princess damn it. And the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent and ferociously funny take charge woman who took our collective breath away. Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, wearing her mother's portrait printed on her metallic dress accepted the star. She was throwing around a lot of glitter. My mom was glitter. She covered her world, and it both literally and metaphorically. She left a mark of her sparkle on everyone she met. People in the crowd were dressed as characters from the Star Wars franchise. People's love for Leia didn't die with my mom. It continues to get passed on from generation to generation. Billy Lorde said no one will ever be as hot or as cool as princess Leia. I'm Ed Donahue
