"And she really just said to me, 'You know, I know that was really hard on you losing your sister.' [And I said], 'I mean, Carrie was there holding my hand when I took my first steps.
[She's like], 'You're going to take my dog and, you know, all these little instructions.' And [she] even [went through] last-minute changes due to the fact that Carrie left first, as far as the memorial service." "I thought that we were just going through these events just like one would go back through an estate," Todd added.
"It looked like she asked permission to leave, told me she was going to leave, told me she loves me, closed her eyes and went to sleep." Todd said that following Debbie's death, he saw a lot of stories in which he was misquoted for saying that his mother had died from a broken heart.
She was like, 'Well, you know, I hope that it had gone a different way, but now that it's gone a different way, I'll go be with her.'" Later in our interview, Todd told ET that to this day, he's "really OK" with "Debbie's exit," but "not so OK" with Carrie's.
