A joint memorial service and side-by-side burial are being planned for mother-and-daughter Hollywood stars Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, who died a day apart earlier this week in Los Angeles, the family said on Friday.
Todd Fisher, son of Reynolds and younger brother to Carrie, said that he caught a glimpse of hummingbirds at a cemetery site at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.
This, he noted convinced him it was the ideal spot for their final resting place.
“That’s the way it was meant to be,” Todd Fisher, 58, told Reuters, recalling that his mother, the Oscar-nominated singer and actress, had a special fondness for hummingbirds, which were regular visitors to the grounds of her Beverly Hills home.
Fisher said he and other relatives were gathering this weekend to firm up funeral arrangements, including dates.
He said the family was planning two private events – a joint memorial celebration and a burial of his mother and sister next to one another at Forest Lawn – to be followed by some form of public commemoration of the two women.
Reynolds, who sang and danced her way into the hearts of moviegoers in such Hollywood musicals as “Singin’ in the Rain,” suffered a stroke and died on Wednesday at the age of 84.
Angelina Jolie, 41-year-old actress, who filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Sept. 19, was spotted arriving at Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles with a noticeably bare left ring finger.
In fact, the mother of six was completely jewelry-free, sporting a long black dress, which she paired with aviator sunglasses, nude flats and a matching purse.
An eyewitness tells ET that Jolie and the children she shares with Pitt — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — stayed at the hotel while a judge met with her attorney, Laura Wasser, and Pitt’s attorney, Lance Spiegel, on Wednesday, December 7.
When they checked out on Thursday, December 8 at 11 am, the kids were all carrying overnight bags, according to the eyewitness.
“Angelina looked good, a bit serious,” the eyewitness explained, adding that Jolie was helping the kids load their things into the vehicle. “Maddox had his hands in his pockets and head down as he quickly got into the car.”
Jolie has been keeping a low profile following her split from Pitt. Court documents obtained by ET on Wednesday reveal that the estranged couple’s legal agreement was approved by a judge on Dec. 2, and grants Jolie physical custody of their children. Pitt will continue to have agreed-upon therapeutic visitations with the kids, as determined by the family’s therapist who “shall at all times consider the best interests of the minor children,” according to the court documents.
Their custody battle has come to a standstill, however, as Pitt revealed in his court declaration that he and Jolie were unable to agree on a custody schedule. The Allied star, who is seeking more unsupervised time with the kids, intends to “file a Request for Orders to establish a schedule unless an agreement is reached.”
Some men in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Thursday said the use of body enhancers such as padded braziers, hips and bum boosters by women was deceptive.
The men said the body enhancers give a wrong impression about the reality of the user’s physique.
Body enhancers are undergarments such as padded braziers, butt’s booster, hip enhancer, waist cincher and others worn by women.
Some of the men who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said they found the trend repulsive and unappealing.
Others, however, said the use of body enhancers, particularly padded braziers, added more to a woman’s sexual appeal, makes her more attractive and added to her confidence.
Mr Timothy Danladi, condemned the use of body enhancers by women which, he described as artificial and falsehood.
“I find the use of artificial buttocks by some women to add more to their God’s given physique unattractive.
“This is because it gives a wrong impression about their stature that will definitely be revealed to their partners when they get married,’’ he said.
Mr Emmanuel Alabi said such was based on falsehood and could cause problems in the home since a man was usually attracted to a woman because of her body apart from her intellect, manner and facial beauty.
“If a woman uses artificial things to entice a man into marrying her, nemesis will catch up with her because when he later finds out that those things were fake, it could even lead to break-up of the union.’’
Alabi said there was the need for women to be natural to avoid deceiving men and causing problems in their relationships.
Similarly, Mr Shuaibu Sabo said that such enhancers only created an illusion that was totally different from reality.
Sabo advised women to desist from using such unnatural endowment and appreciate the body God gave to them.
“Some women are also not satisfied with what God has given them.
“They go to any length to change their natural identity which is more attractive than bleached skin and use of body enhancers,’’ he said.
On the contrary, Mr Sani Isuwa, said he found the use of body enhancers attractive, especially for women whose body were not proportionate to other parts.
Isuwa said he did not have any problem or reservation about a woman that uses enhancers which is better than undergoing a surgery as it is predominantly practiced in other countries.
“I prefer a woman to use body enhancers than for her to undergo surgery to add more or distort what God has given her.’’
Mr Boniface Eze, said he encouraged his wife to us body enhancers due to the change in her body after numerous child delivery.
“Some women actually need body enhancers to make them more appealing and attractive to the opposite sex,’’ he said.
According to him, he encourages his wife to use padded bra because nursing five children has changed the shape and size of her breast.
“I prefer my wife to use padded bra because they are no longer the way they used to be after breastfeeding five children.
“When she wears clothes it fits her more than if she uses normal brazier,’’ Eze said said.
Meanwhile, some of the women that use body enhancers told NAN that it boosted their confidence, added more to their sexuality and made clothes more fitting on their bodies.
Mrs Jecinta Eze, a mother of five, said she could not go out without wearing a padded bra.
“If I don’t use a padded bra, I will look so unattractive and flat-chested,’’ she told NAN.
Also, Miss Grace Iliya, said she uses hip booster to make the lower part of her body proportionate to her upper part.
“If I don’t use a hip booster, my upper body looks bigger than my lower body because I am busty.
“So, I prefer to use it to make both parts proportionate and it boosts my confidence and makes me look more attractive,’’ she said.
Meanwhile, Malam Usman Ali, an undergarment trader in Garki Market, said he usually sold padded bras than any of his wares.
Ali said the cost of a padded bra varied between N350 and N4,500 depending on the quality, while hip booster is between N700 and N3,500.
The postponed wedding ceremony of President Muhammad Buhari’s daughter Zahra to oil tycoon, Ahmed Indimi, has been re-scheduled for December 16, 2016, a close family source has confirmed.
The source disclosed that President Muhammad Buhari has agreed to the new date after persuasion from friends and family.
