Cissy Houston still has hope, but is facing reality. Whitney Houston’s mother opened up about her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“[Bobbi Kristina] is the same. She’s not progressing at all,” Houston, 81, told ET’s Kevin Frazier. “When I go there and look at her, [it’s] very difficult.”
Houston said that Whitney and Bobby Brown’s only child isn’t “gone yet,” but did appear to be ready if Bobbi Kristina tragically passes away. “Because I have nothing to do with that. Whatever the Lord decides,” she continued. “It’s His territory, and I understand it. It’s…very difficult for me. But I’ll make it. I made it through [Whitney,] I’ll make it.”
Bobbi Kristina, 22, was found facedown in her Atlanta home’s bathtub on Jan. 31, an eerily similar way Whitney died at age 48 in February 2012. Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized in an induced coma and was moved to a rehab center in March. Her family has been by her side ever since.

“I’d like to thank everybody who was praying. Who really knows the worth of prayer and I’m sure it’ll get through,” Houston told ET. “I’m just waiting for whatever happens. We go to the hospital every day and pray and I talk to her because she can still hear and I rub her hand. We do what we can do. The rest is…all up to Him. We know nothing about His plan…All I can do is hope for the best.”
Houston’s latest update comes just one day after it was confirmed to Us Weekly that Bobby, 46, and Pat Houston have been appointed co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina.
“It came alright. It was fine,” Houston said of the new development. “We’re a family that works together for the best. You want the best for whomever or everybody we can.”
