Carrie Fisher was briefly hospitalized last week for her bipolar disorder after a bizarre performance aboard a cruise ship, but her mother Debbie Reynolds says she’ll be fine.
“She’s had manic depression bipolar since she was 13. It’s an illness, and she’s doing much better,” Reynolds told PEOPLE exclusively Wednesday night. “I’m very proud of her, and she’s doing exceptionally well. She’ll be just fine, just great, and continue her writing as she always does.”
