Carrie Fisher

HOSPITALIZED

After Bipolar Episode on Caribbean Cruise Ship

Carrie Fisher
was hospitalized following a bizarre performance on board a Caribbean cruise ship last week -- and her rep tells TMZ, it was all caused by the actress' bipolar disorder.

Video footage surfaced of the performance -- which took place last week on board the Holland America Eurodam in the Caribbean -- showing Carrie slurring a couple off-key songs. Her dog even POOPS AND PEES on the stage while she's singing. It's pretty nuts.

There were reports Carrie -- who was featured on the cruise as a "surprise" celebrity guest -- was wasted at the time of the show ... but her rep says the on-stage breakdown was caused by Fisher's bipolar disorder.

The rep says, "There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder.  She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now."

Carrie -- a recovering drug addict -- has publicly discussed her bipolar disorder in the past. The rep says it's unclear if Carrie will return to perform on the cruise ship again.

It was probably her bipolar disorder, her medications, a whole lot of booze and maybe some street drugs that did this to her. Not a good combination. It sounds like Carrie is back on "the edge" again.

If you want to get an idea of what people with real bi-polar disorder are like all you have to do is watch "Silver Linings Playbook" starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer just won a Grammy for her performance in this movie. The character played by Bradley is suffering from bi-polar.

BiPolar Espisode is a code word in Hollywood for back on coke. Kind of like when Obama says levelling the playing field he means socialism. Smart people see these things.

I have bipolar disorder....She surely isn't going through a manic or hypomanic phase... would depression cause this? The only excuse I can really see is if she's on a mood stabilizer that increases the effects of alcohol. Claiming this as a "Bi-polar" incident is disrespectful to others with the disorder and the lack of clarity leads to continued public ignorance and doubt being cast on her excuse.

I heard no slurring, just an older woman singing acapella. However, the set was odd. Why were too men sitting on a couch with trash all over the floor? They didn't show us why that happened.

Every comic should just write her a check every month for the material she provides. Its only fair.
