Book Description

The beloved Hollywood star and New York Times bestselling author of Unsinkable continues her intimate chat with fans in this entertaining collection of anecdotes, stories, jokes, and random musings from a woman who has seen it all—and done most of it.

From her acclaimed performances to her headline-making divorce from Eddie Fisher, raising a famous daughter to hitting the road with a successful one-woman show, Debbie Reynolds was in the spotlight for decades. Over her more than six-decade-long career she met presidents, performed for the Queen of England, and partied with kings.

In this fabulous personal tour, she recalls wonderful moments with the greats of the entertainment world—Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis, Phyllis Diller, and many, many more—sharing stories that shed new light on her life and career and the glittering world of Hollywood then and now. Debbie has plenty to tell—and in Make ’Em Laugh, she dishes it in the warm, down-to-earth voice her fans adore.

Debbie shares memories of late night pals and some of the greatest comedians of all time, stories from the big screen and small, and tales of marriage, motherhood, and children. Combining her wicked sense of humor and appealing charm, she reveals the personal side of show business and fame in funny, poignant, and delightful reminiscences. Nothing is off limits: Debbie talks about her sex life, her family drama—and even shares a few secret recipes.

A true Hollywood icon, beloved by millions of fans around the world, Debbie Reynolds died on December 28, 2016, at the age of 84, just one day after the death of her daughter, actress and author Carrie Fisher.

    If you love, or even just like, Debbie Reynolds, you will love this book! Such a fun little book of her memories with a variety of celebrities and her adventures. I knew she was a great actress and a delight to watch, but I didn't realize until now how much fun she had in her everyday life. She was definitely a person who loved life and was able to laugh about even the not-so-funny parts, like several mentions of her failed romances that she seemed like she had the "well, that's life!" attitude. She also tells quite a bit about her family and her love for each one of them. It was a bit bittersweet to get to the end and read about how she can't wait to see her granddaughter grow as an actress, but if for some reason she couldn't be there, she'd be watching from Heaven. This was really a fun book to read and had quite a few laughs. I'm now adding her memoir "Unsinkable" to my to-read list!
