Troubled STAR WARS star CARRIE FISHER has electroshock therapy!
Carrie, the daughter of crooner Eddie Fisher and MGM icon Debbie Reynolds is no stranger to bad times --some of it self-inflicted as depicted in her film and book “Postcards from The Edge”.
But now, tub thumping yet another tell-all tome, “Shockaholic” ,the former Princess Leia told Fox411 that the most shocking experience of all was the deserate help she sought following the suicide of a close pal.
Carrie said that she chose electroshock therapy as a last resort.
“Nothing else had worked,” she admitted.
“I was in a really, really severe depression.
“I was as close to being suicidal as you can be without being suicidal.
"You sort of feel like not being around but I would never do anything like that.
"I have a daughter and family and friends.
"But I was devastated.
“I was feeling pointless,” Carrie confessed.
Luckily, the Tesla-coiled bug zapper turned the manic-depressive Hollywood spawn around.
