Dionne Warwick decided to finally break her silence since Whitney Houston’s home-going service over three weeks ago. The cousin of the legendary singer sat down with Robin Roberts of ‘Good Morning America’ and shared her last moment with her cousin/close friend and how surreal her passing has been. Dionne shared that even though they were related she always saw Nippy as her own daughter:
She basically was the little girl I never had. I have two sons so she, and my other cousin Felicia, were basically my little girls … I’m heading towards being ‘okay’. I have not really had an opportunity to mourn or completely break down, which I will do. I know that. I think the comfort comes in knowing she’s in good hands now. She’s in the best hands right now.
She also shared how Whitney’s mother, Cissy is doing and said that she’s really holding up well. Although she has her moments, she is coming to terms with the loss of her daughter. Peep the clip below.
