She married and divorced three times. She and first husband Eddie Fisher wed in 1955. They are the parents of Carrie Fisher and Todd Fisher. A public scandal ensued when Eddie and Elizabeth Taylor fell in love, and the Fishers were divorced in 1959. Reynolds’ second marriage, to millionaire businessman Harry Karl, lasted from 1960 to 1973. At the end, she found herself in financial difficulty due to Karl’s gambling and bad investments.

Reynolds was married to real estate developer Richard Hamlett from 1984 to 1996. They purchased a small hotel and casino in Las Vegas, but it was not a success. In 1997, Reynolds was forced to declare bankruptcy. Reynolds has been active in the Thalians Club, a charitable organization. She has amassed a large collection of movie memorabilia and displayed them, first in a museum at her Las Vegas hotel and casino during the 1990s and later in a museum close to the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles, California.
