This just in: there is much less of Carrie Fisher than there was a while ago. People says:
She's lost 50 lbs. in the past nine months – and is ready for her bikini, or, in her case, her Princess Leia metal two-piece.
The self-effacing author-actress and Jenny Craig spokesperson, 54, coyly unveiled her latest self on Wednesday's Today" show, accepting a hug from host Ann Curry, who proclaimed Fisher "beeeeeeeeauuuuuutiful."
That is the precise number of e’s and u’s, by the way. An earlier version that moved on the wires had the exact quote as “beeeeeauuutiful,” but it’s been corrected.
The long-standing appeal of the metal bikini was not the item itself, but what it contained; could have been made out of tofu or ceramic for anyone cared.
