carrie fisherLast week we reported on some odd behavior by Carrie Fisher aboard an RSVP gay cruise—including rambling, chasing after passengers and allowing her dog to defecate on stage.

Now Fisher’s reps have confirmed her behavior on the Holland America Eurodam was the result of a bipolar episode and that the actress-writer checked into a hospital for treatment.

“There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder,” the source told TMZ.  “She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now.”

We wish Fisher a speedy recovery and hope they’ve got a nice juicy part for her in the next Star Wars movie. Or at least an option to rewrite the script.
