Joely Fisher says since the sudden death of her half-sister, Carrie Fisher, in December, she hasn't experienced the seven stages of grief -- she's experienced "more like 77."

"I saw her in November for her [60th] birthday and we had a grand time, the typical Carrie party," Joely recalls of her older sibling, adding that their last conversation was over text message.
