Carrie Fisher’s Fun Times With Kennedy, Dodd

From a bemused ABC News:

Carrie Fisher’s Top 3 Crazy Tales: Senators, Prostitutes and Michael Jackson

Nov. 10, 2011

Given the title of Carrie Fisher’s latest book (and her history with electroshock therapy), crazy tales were a given. But the "Star Wars" actress and "Wishful Drinking" author exceeds expectations with her new memoir, "Shockaholic," in which she chronicles a night on the town with two major senators, her dealings with the dentist that sued Michael Jackson, and her attempt to grant her dying father one final, raunchy request…

Mind you, the senators are not described as having been part of a "raunchy request."

On a 1985 Washington, D.C., dinner with her date, the then single former Sen. Chris Dodd, and dining companion, the late Sen. Ted Kennedy:

For the record, it was also in 1985 that Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd made a "Waitress Sandwich" out of some poor, unsuspecting waitress.

"So, having recently graduated completely healed and normal from my first stint in a rehab, and appearing in an almost perfectly respectable piece of work, I found myself driving from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., to have dinner with Chris Dodd, this senator who I knew virtually nothing about. Nor did Senator Dodd — like most people, then, now and always — have any idea who I was in the wide, wide world beyond this cute little actress who’d played Princess Leia."

‘Don’t you know I’m Debbie Reynolds’ daughter?!’

"Suddenly, Senator Kennedy, seated directly across from me, looked at me with his alert [sic], aristocratic eyes [sic] and asked me a most surprising question.

‘So,’ he said, clearly amused, ‘do you think you’ll be having sex with Chris at the end of your date?’ … To my left, Chris Dodd looked at me with an unusual grin hanging on his very flushed face."

Her reply: "’Funnily enough, I won’t be having sex with Chris tonight,’ I said, my face composed and calm. ‘No, that probably won’t happen.’ People blinked. ‘Thanks for asking, though.’"

His retort: "’Would you have sex with Chris in a hot tub?’ Senator Kennedy asked me, perhaps as (A representative for Dodd did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com’s request for comment.)…

What a shock.

Still, why were there no charges of sexual harassment?

    I think I just threwup in my mouth at the thought of Chrissy Dodd and her.

    Even after death, we learn what a pampered loser this guy was. –the lesser child of a successful and prominent family.

    Ah…..Ted Kennedy. After death his stature has been elevated to the Liberal Lion of the Senate, defender of the poor and oppressed. I remember all the political cartoons of the American eagle embracing him and of him wistfully sailing off into the sunset.

    Forgotten is his decades long reputation as a boozer and womanizer; his outlandish behavior, all the tabloid stories. Maybe it was just frustration at the Reagan/Bush years, as he suddenly redeemed himself as an elder statesman under Clinton. (That was sarcasm, by the way).

    It must be nice to be liberal; get drunk all the time, cheat on your wife, sleep around, and then it’s somehow all forgiven. Don’t worry about losing your job, who cares about morals, show up when you feel like it. It’s only those evil conservatives who are at fault for anything.

    Don’t like anything in the liberal mantra–you’re just filled with hate and have to be kept down! Never mind these same conservatives are the ones showing up to work in the morning, keeping the lights on and the business going.

    I’ve met too many liberals with these out of control personal lives to really think it’s not related; I guess they’re for gun control as none of them should be trusted with a firearm, or a car for that matter.

    But still, must be nice, do as you please, stand up and make some speech about how you’re a hero for the greater good, and then go off and drink and let someone else worry about trying to make it all work.

    Ted Kennedy had “alert eyes”? Must have been some other Ted Kennedy.

    Carrier Fisher who? Surely a sign of the financial desperation under the Obama years.

    Amazing she wrote in screen play fashion recalling every detail and word from years ago delusional that this is a seller.

    Carrie Fisher: I said, my face composed and calm. ‘No, that probably won’t happen.’ People blinked.

    Does that probably no mean maybe or yes. What was her request to trade for.
    Okay Dodd maybe not.
    But, did she with the Senator Ted and how lucky for herself she is alive and not drowned at sea.
