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.

What was so terrible about that? It looked like an intimate show in someone's living room. She hit a bad note at the start, and they kept laughing at her. She still sounded pretty good. She was probably shocked by having to clean up after her dog. That doesn't make her crazy.


I think people are very rude and they don't care how they hurt someone's feelings. That probably made her feel so insecure that she ran back to the hosptital. It is not her fault that her dog had an accident. Where do pets go to relieve themselves on a ship anyway?


This is a bipolar episode? What isn't then?

How come celebs have "bi polar" episodes while regular folks are simply called drunks and druggies? If she was drunk, she was drunk. Call it what it is.

Carrie Fisher just seemed like Carrie Fisher. She was always "unconventional". To the people who enjoy her shtick it's part of her charm. Everyone there seemed relaxed-more like friends gathered in a livingroom. I doubt that was a formal performance or show.

I call BS on this. I have a close family member who suffers from Bipolar disorder and it does NOT cause you to act like a drunken moron. People with bipolar disorder have rapidly shifting moods. It sounds like someone had one too many ****tails and made a fool of herself.

She seemed fine to me. Screw those cruise ship people. Have you ever been on a cruise? They suck.
