Joely Fisher: I Knew Debbie Reynolds 'Would Not Last' Without Carrie

ABC's "Good Morning America"/Twitter

Joely Fisher, Carrie Fisher's half-sister, told ABC's "Good Morning America" in an emotional interview that aired Tuesday, "I knew that if Carrie [Fisher] wasn't going to survive this, that Debbie [Reynolds] would not. You knew it."

"You could see it in her face," she said about Reynolds. "She would not last without [Carrie] on the planet… She kept saying that she… wanted more time" with her.

Carrie Fisher died on Dec. 27 at the age of 60. One day later, Reynolds, 84, died after suffering a stroke.

Joely Fisher's sentiments were similar to that of her half-brother Todd Fisher, who said the day of his mother's death, she told him after Carrie died "I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie," according to TMZ.

Joely and Tricia Fisher were the daughters of singer Eddie Fisher, also the father of Carrie and Todd, and they grew up next door to each other. They said they always bonded with Carrie, because they had the same absent father.

"When you were in his presence, you felt like you were the most important, most beautiful, most special person in the world," Tricia Fisher said, "And then, he would go away and, and you know, not show up."

She said Carrie was "the coolest big sister in the world… She spoke her mind and spoke her truth in, in this just bold way that, made everyone feel a little bit more comfortable about their own flaws."

Joely Fisher recalled being with Carrie during her final days.

"I remember just holding her hand and telling her that we were there, that we would make sure that her daughter was whole, which she will be," Joely Fisher said.

Tricia Fisher said she felt "numb," over Carrie's death. "Just the fact that that energy is gone from our lives and gone from the world is hard to wrap your head around."
