How "The Real Debbie Reynolds" Evolved

A Famous Name Creates Attention

The Real Debbie ReynoldsIt was about 12 years ago when talking with my website representative that the idea of using The Real Debbie Reynolds evolved. The representative quickly noticed the familiarity of my name and I told her stories of people joking with me about being the famous actress, Debbie Reynolds. Almost daily I was getting comments about whether could I sing and dance or how was Eddie Fisher.

The actress, Debbie Reynolds did the Tammy movies and had a headline show in Vegas for many years. Her daughter, Carrie Fisher was Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies. Most of America have heard of one or both.

 

After laughing together about my name the representative suggested I call myself The Real Debbie Reynolds, to get people to remember me and create discussion. Famous names create attention.

 

That is exactly what I did and it has been a fun ride. The older generation knew who the actress was and would laugh along with me. As the new generation came along they had no idea who she was. In fact a few of them asked me if someone was trying to impersonate me. I had to explain. It created attention as the representative said many years ago.

 

With the recent passing of the actress, Debbie Reynolds and her daughter, Carrie Fisher the memories of my business moniker have been revived. Many fans across the country are saddened by the loss of these two ladies. I am sad to see this generation pass.

 

An ActiveRain friend of mine, Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® said now I am the Only Debbie Reynolds. I know there are other Debbie Reynolds in real estate but I will remain The Real Debbie Reynolds. The moniker stands.

Debbie when I first met you on AR, the other Debbie Reynolds came to mind.  Having a famous name sure will get a conversation going.

Besh wishes for the new year.

Hi Debbie- Carrie Fisher's death was such a shock, and now with her mother passing the very next day...it's just so sad.

Debbie, I was going to mention that in a post that now "You are the only Debbie Reynolds" but discretion is the better part of valor and chose not to....since it is such a tragedy that mother and daughter passed within a day...Endre

Debbie, yes you are the Real One!  It was sad news to hear about Debbie and Carrie. I saw Debbie Reynolds at the Greenbrier's Casino Opening a few years ago. She had the most beautiful smile.

Debbie,

I was saddened by the passing of Debbie Reynolds and I think that she is an icon and no matter what anyone says I  think this loss was too much for her to bear at her age!

So that's how that came about. Thank you for sharing. I didn't know the story. 

I can only share the same first name with you. My last name if unique, but believe it or not, there is another Debbie Laity and the last time I checked she was a lender in one of the southern states.

Hi Debbie - I wondered how you came to dub yourself the Real Debbie Reynolds.  I got it but I never thought about the younger generation's  impression.  Whatever the case you are the Real Deal!
