Whitney Houston's cousin Dionne Warwick, 74, commented on Bobbi Kristina Brown Sunday during Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, just hours after Brown's death was announced.

Warwick had been scheduled to be on Andy Cohen's show, and kept her commitment to the TV appearance despite the tragic news the Bobbi Kristina Brown had succumbed to injuries sustained after being found facedown in her Georgia home in January.

Cohen thanked Warwick for being on the show before giving the famed singer an opportunity to share her thoughts on her young cousin, who had died at the age of 22.

"Oh my, do we have enough time? She was a sweetheart and she will be missed, that's for sure. And she was a good girl. She was a good little girl, she really was," Warwick said.

Warwick said the loss of Bobbi Kristina so soon after her mother's own death in similar circumstances was not been easy. However, she credited the family's faith for the strength to get through both losses.

"I think it's because of our faith and strength in faith, knowing that Bobbi is now with a much, much bigger and more powerful person — or thing, according to who or how you believe — than we'll ever know. She's in much better hands now," she said.

The daughter of Houston and Bobby Brown died Sunday at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia, not quite six months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in Roswell, Georgia.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine what led to the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, authorities said Monday, the day after her death.
