Carrie Fisher Sisters “GMA” Interview – WATCH VIDEO
Carrie Fisher’s sisters opened up about her death in an interview broadcast on Tuesday’s “GMA.” Watch below.
As Gossip Cop reported, Fisher died exactly a week ago, a few days after suffering a medical emergency on a plane. Then, the following day, her mother, the acting legend Debbie Reynolds, also died. Now Fisher’s half-sisters, Joely and Tricia Leigh Fisher, are trying to make sense of the double tragedy.
Joely told ABC’s Chris Connelly, “I’ve been having an out-of-body experience. The world lost Carrie, and Debbie of course, and Princess Leia, and we lost our hero. We lost our mirror.” Joely revealed that her final conversation with Fisher was via text the night before that life-changing flight.
“We talked about our frail mothers, and promised to see her for Christmas,” shared the actress. Christmas was then spent in the hospital, with Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd keeping vigil. Tricia commented, “She’s an amazing, amazing girl. She was obviously, you know, rattled to her core. It was her mom. But she was handling it.”
Joely recalled, “I remember holding [Fisher’s] hand and telling her that we were there, that we would make sure her daughter was whole, which she will be. I sat with Debbie and she said to me — she said she was praying for more time. She kept saying that she wanted more time. And I knew that if Carrie wasn’t going to survive this that Debbie would not. You knew this.”
At one point, Joely apologized to the camera for still wanting Fisher to herself, as opposed to sharing her with the world. Check out the full video below.
