Debra was seen wearing her reading glasses and a light palette of makeup. Her coarse auburn tresses were strewn across cream pillows which were lined with black piping.
The sitcom actress playfully bit her lip before applauding Sharon in a lengthy accompanying caption.
Debra is known for her role as Grace Adler in the classic 90s TV show, Will & Grace.
Last year, the actress said that she felt pressure to lose weight, eventually dropping from a size 8 to a size 2 for the series as none of the clothes provided to her by wardrobe would fit.

After taking on more exercise and cutting down her meal intake, she began to lose weight and said she felt she was ‘making people happy’ by doing it, hinting that she felt pressured to slim down.
‘When I started Will & Grace I was a size 8 and what happened was, every time I would go in for a fitting, I couldn’t fit into clothes,’ she began to explain, during an interview on Jameela Jamil’s I Weigh podcast.
‘Eighty percent of it I couldn’t fit into and I would just leave hating my body and hating myself.
‘I loved my costume designer, she would always say, “don’t worry,” and she would talk to her assistant and say, “OK, can you call over and get a larger size?” And that was sort of the thing that was always on repeat all the time.’
She continued: ‘So of course, I thought, “my life would be so much easier”, and it would be easier on everybody trying to do their job, if I just lost weight.

‘So I started doing yoga every single day and I did one of those meal delivery services. I started to get smaller and then I was a [size] 6, and they were like, “You’re losing weight, you look amazing!”‘
Debra added that she felt she was hearing the message that ‘as a woman [it] was, “oh, this is making them happy, so I should do more of it.”‘
The star then explained how her TV peers – particularly Ally McBeal stars Calista Flockhart and Portia de Rossi – made her compare herself to the ultra-thin actresses.
She explained: ‘Then I was lucky enough to be invited on the red carpet to the Emmys and the Golden Globes, and that was the same time that Ally McBeal was at its height and Calista was the “It” girl and Portia also was so so slim, and she’s spoken openly about her anorexia, so it’s all within sort of the same theme.

‘I would try to fit into these gowns and of course they weren’t sample sizes and it was like, “OK, we have to let out the seams, etc.”
‘This was supposed to be the greatest time of my life, being nominated for Best Actress in a TV show I loved for an Emmy and walking on the red carpet
‘I walked out and I immediately felt so incredible, and then I was standing next to all of these other actresses who were half my size, and I felt fat, and I felt ugly. I look back at those pictures and I was beautiful!’
She continued: ‘I mourn the fact that that was my interpretation of reality and that was the torture that I put myself through. I was way too skinny… but, you know, going in for those fittings, I fit into everything.
‘And all of a sudden, I literally could fit into anything that was high fashion. So all of a sudden, everything seemed to open up for me, because I was a [size] 2.’
