It’s been a difficult time for family members of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown as they announced her death on Sunday, July 26. In the wake of the tragedy, Whitney Houston’s cousin, Dionne Warwick, shared some kind words on live TV just after news broke of the 22-year-old’s passing.
During Sunday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” host Andy Cohen broke the news to viewers that Bobbi Kristina Brown had died after spending almost six months in hospital care. In January her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, found her face-down and unresponsive in a bath tub. Doctors later pronounced Brown with global and irreversible brain damage.
Warwick was previously scheduled to appear on the show and Cohen commended her on her professionalism to stick with the episode before asking her to share her thoughts on the loss of Bobbi Kristina.
“She was a sweetheart. She will be missed, that’s for sure. She was a good girl. She was a good little girl, that’s for sure,” said Warwick, seemingly unable to find the right words.
Cohen pressed Warwick a little further, asking how she and her family copes with the loss of Bobbi Kristina so soon after losing Whitney Houston in almost the same way. In the clip from “Watch What Happens Live,” posted below, she explains that their Christian faith is what helps the most.
“It's not easy that's for sure. I think it's because of our faith and strength in our faith," she explained. "Knowing that Bobbi is now with a much, much bigger and powerful person or thing that we'll ever know. She's in much better hands now.”
Warwick’s words, while touching, were hardly the first sign of support for the Brown family and kind words said about the late Bobbi Kristina following the news of her death. Cohen took a moment to mention stars like Oprah Winfrey, Missy Elliot and Taraji P. Henson who all took to Twitter to share their condolences.
